Book Review on Dark Lover by J. R. Ward

I will not deny that the book’s description sound and look very very interesting to read.


(The Black Dagger Brotherhood Book 1)

The only purebred vampire left on the universe and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killedโ€”orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fateโ€”Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.

Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasnโ€™t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of the Brotherhood and blood frighten her. Yet his touch ignites a dawning new hungerโ€”one that threatens to consume them both.


This is my very first book by J. R. Ward. I picked up this book cos it’s being recommended by a book club and seriously, I’m intrigued cos the cover and the blurb sound interesting.

It started out great but I really really had a hard time concentrating on the names in the book. There’re so many names that I need to remember and honestly speaking?? I forgot who’s who. Except Wrath, the blind king. And Z. The scarred face emotionless vamp.

They’re divided into two groups. The vampires and the ones who’s hunting them is call the Lesser. Apparently the Lesser are not those normal vampire hunters we’ve read about. They’re different. They’re not really alive and they’re not vamps. And the vamps are pretty cool as they need to eat like human beings. But consume blood like once or twice per month. Not those ” I need blood to survive.”

Characters building wise are ok cos I get to know them much better but I had a hard time learning their names. Maybe the next book I might have a better idea. The boring part are the scenes between Marissa and Butch. Truth to be told, I yawn whenever they appear. Too much of them. It’s like needing their appearances together to fill some of the pages.

The plot is good. I do like the vampires although their attire are anything but made of leather.

This book is worth to read. But be mindful of the names. It’s interesting to find out how centuries of feud is going to end when we finish the series.
