The newest installment in J.R. Ward's #1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Long live the King . . .

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle - with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she's unprepared for Wrath's response - or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out . . . or tortured legacy take over?

About the Author

            These books are great! Love the story lines, I read this book within a week I couldn't put it down, and it was the same for the other books in the series.

                Comments about The King:

                Was a little disappointed with this book. Very fragmented, brief cameos by all the major characters and not enough story line involving Wrath and Beth. I just felt the book could have been better. This is the first time I have been critical of a J.R.Ward book.

                  I absolutely loved this book. I loved going back to revisit Beth and Wrath while discovering more about the new characters. All of these books have been difficult to put down and when you get to the end, you just want more. Every book I have felt so many emotions. If you have not read this series please start at the beginning.

                  'J.R. Ward's unique band of brothers is to die for. I love this series!' New York Times bestselling author, Suzanne Brockmann. 'Erotic and frighteningly addictive... Ward has earned an Anne Rice-style following, deservedly so' Publishers Weekly.

                  J.R Ward

                  J.R. Ward is the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series of vampire books. She is a winner of the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for Best Paranormal Romance and is a multiple RITA nominee. A graduate of Smith College, she was a double major in History and Art History with a medieval concentration in both and she still longs at times for a return to those days sitting in dark lecture halls, looking at slides of old triptychs and reliquaries. Prior to becoming a full time writer, she was a corporate attorney, serving for many years as the Chief of Staff of one of Harvard Medical Schools premier teaching sites. Her idea of absolute heaven is a day filled with nothing but her computer, her dog and her coffee pot and the Brothers, of course.
