Lover Reborn: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward
Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment is a heartbroken shadow of the vampire leader he once was. Brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel, he fights again with ruthless vengeance- and is unprepared for a new tragedy. Seeing his beloved in dreams—trapped in a cold, desolate netherworld—he turns to the angel to save his former mate, only to despair at the path he himself must take to set her free. As war with the lessers rages, and a new clan of vampires vies for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between an unforgettable past, and a future that he doesn’t know he can live with… but can’t seem to turn away from.
I love this series so much. J.R. Ward knows how to put you through an emotional ringer. Every single book it seems like there is no way things will work out, but they do, at least for the main couple. If you have not read a BDB book, you really should start at the beginning with Dark Lover . The books are very interconnected.
This book deals with how someone can recover from losing a love. Tissues are needed. I always liked Tohrment and I'm glad he can finally move on and be happy. It is not easy, though. He acts like a jerk and I wanted to punch him a few times, but he is hurting. We get more of Lassiter, too, although we still don't know much about him.
J.R. Ward recently announced on her Facebook page that the next book will be Quinn and Blay! They deserve a HEA, so I am happy to hear that. If anyone has a problem with the fact that they are both males, then they shouldn't read it.
My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !!!!
