8 out of 10

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood ...

The love-story is normal for this genre, but J. R. Ward created a lot of interesting figures with special abilities. I liked the idee that vampires only feed from other vampires.

Arrived today, that was fast! :)
I'm very curious about the book, will start it soon.
Thanks a lot for sharing.

Well, overall an entertaining read. At first I was a bit disappointed by all the stereotypes, but after all muscles were described it made a very good late night read. :)
In broad daylight the names were a bit ridiculous and the evil counterpart Mr. X very underdeveloped, but that's a flaw I find in most urban fantasy/vamp romance stuff.
So, yes, I'd be interested to read other books from the Black Dagger series.

Actually I was quite surprised I liked reading this book that much
I've heard enthusiastic opinions about this series before - that's why I joined this RAY ;-)
But I wouldn't have imagined myself beeing drawn into the book's world that easily
Will I read further parts of the series? - Well, yeah, I guess I will... ;-)
(★★★★★★★★★✫ from me)

It´s not a story for a feminist... but if you take it as entertainment.... a fantasy about vampires and romance (and sex).
Thanks!
Now it will travel to Tsjara.

Arrived here safely. Thanks for sending Deepswamp (and for the lovely card)!
This sounds great, looking forward to reading it :) (I do have a couple of other rings in front, so it might take a bit longer).. Thank you for sharing LadyAmalie!

I finished reading it this morning (when I should be studying for exams :p). It was a very entertaining read and I couldn't put it down. Though all the abbreviations annoyed me a bit, as I didn't knew what they stood for most of the time.. hmm.. and the vampires had kind of funny names but you get used to it after a while. And it was better written than most of the other vampire/romance sort of books that I have read.
Looking forward to the rest of the series :)

I will mail this to WigglyWoods tomorrow.

I enjoyed this enough to read the next ones. My daughter read it before me as I had two rings arrive at the same time and she spotted that this was about vampires - she read it very quickly and enjoyed it. I thought the different take on the abilities/qualities of vampires was very good but I can't say that I was very taken with the brotherhood characters really.

I will post on as soon as I have an address.

This book is in no way a serious book but it is enjoyable and fun. To be honest I would have liked more fighting scenes. Also it seemed like there was a sex part every 20 pages or so. Bits are very laughable for example the brothers wearing leather pants! Also the who virgin vampire bit is well just silly. I enjoyed her take on the vampires and their race. I wish the baddies would have had a bit more time in the book, but I know it is a love story. I look forward to the books to come.

* Note: Jonniboi wants me to send book 1, 2 and 3 together.

yay, I have all 3 books, looks like the parcel got damaged on the way, as it came in a sealed plastic covering, luckily nothing disappeared!

Can't wait to read these books. I have, all of a sudden, a few bookrings/rays to get through before these (why do they all turn up at the same time?), so may have them longer than expected, but I'll try and get around to the ASAP!

just finished this book, I am sorry it has taken this long to start reading the books, but I've had exams and a pile of bookrings/rays to go through. But finally got around to them!

I loved this book, but it only became gripping towards the middle, as it was a slow start, and I felt that the battle in the book was too quick, and even though that goes with what is expected of vampires, I still felt it didn't last long enough.

So that is why it is not 10/10 stars, however once I got into it I was gripped and couldn't stop reading it, can't wait to read the next book (starting it right now)

I have the address of Rrrcaron, so will send out soon!
