J.R. Ward's # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne. 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?


BDB series improves


Whilst this book is a huge improvement from the last few books, it still isn't quite as great as the first books, though that does happen with most long series. I really enjoyed reading about Wrath & Beth again, plus the rather large cast of characters living in the mansion. The expansion of the kings story and the better explanation of the politics involved in his position was interesting to read and was balanced out well with the romance. All in all, a great read.

Great Series - but is it running out of steam?


Don't get me wrong, I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I'm sad that we're running out of "Brothers" to write stories about. The number of sub plots is beginning to be distracting though and also interrupts the flow of the story at times. I understand the need to develop characters and build suspense but at times I feel this series is clutching for plot lines with a new twist. Essentially until now all the books have the same story line, just different characters fulfilling the roles. Still I love them and am actually looking forward to reading the first book in the new adjunct series. (Even though the plot seems Same/Same!)

Fantastic series. Sexy and funny. Even if you are not a fan of vampire books, still a good read.
