All Kings Are Blind
The Good Ones See This
And Use More Than Their Eyes To Lead

The brothers are back—the latest installment in J. R. Ward’s sizzling #1New York Times bestselling series.

J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood novels have introduced readers to a “different, creative, dark, violent, and flat-out amazing” (All About Romance)world. Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male’s loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested—and his dangerous mixed blood revealed…

Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood—even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him—and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

Taschima's POV:

So where do I start...

Lets begin with the plot. All books have the same background flow. Male who is powerful and skillful, who wants to do good, but has a dark past. Female of worth who comes along and helps the male, but she also has her flaws, and the male helps her too.

You would think the story would get repetitive right?

Think again.

Every single book has a different story. It never get's repetitive, nor boring. In fact this book has like what? 500-600 pages? I ate them all in no time. The flow of the story is ever moving along. And the twists and turns are out of the mind of a damn genius.

In contrast with Phury's book, this book was a whole lot better, and I think we owe it all to the Reverend. His character had the 3 D's, dark, deadly... damaged. He can kill without mercy, and laugh while doing it. He is the kind of guy that if you see in a bar you would be immediately attracted to, but also fear. Hes the kind of male that would take your soul and sale it to the highest biter.

But in the darkness, there is always light.

He also has his good side. He does horrible things, but they come with a reason. Not always, but most of the time anyways.

Ehlena is the opposite of Rhevenge. She is the care giver, the nurse, the I-would- give-you-my-hand-if-I-only-could kind of girl. But hell she can also handle a gun. And ain't that sweet.

Opposites attract each other, and so not be surprised that these two will meet eventually, but will they end up together? He's a Drug Lord, she's a nurse, what are the odds?

Other than their story we have background story, which are ALWAYS fun. We get to see more of my lover, the blind king, Wrath, and his lovely Shellan Beth. We get to see Thor going to depression and back. JM slowly dying inside.

You see this books may be about vampires, war, romance. But in the core of the book is mostly about human emotions, sacrifice, love, catastrophe, and how to surpass adversity. Only that J.R. Ward makes it more fun by mixing it up with the supernatural, and giving us some of the finest eye candy I could ever find.


  1. I haven't yet read any books from this author! I keep meaning to. I think I'm going to run to the library and see if they have one! Thanks for the great review!

  2. I really enjoyed this book. Love the JM/Xhex storyline.

  3. I saw this book at Walmart the other day. =P

    Thanks for the grats! =) Its so exciting have 12 followers. Woot.

  4. This book is incredible, I mean I love it!

  5. Loved this book! 6 was kind of boring and I'm glad JR got back to the good stuff with book 7. I also liked that she actually wrote interesting stuff about some of the other characters we know and love...I have to say that I was bummed when I started reading the 2nd book and there was nothing about Wrath (ok, your lover, really? I'll take Vishous any day) and Beth. Glad she brought them back in. I can't wait to see what happens with JM and Xhex!

  6. I used to love this series but after Lover Unbound I gave up on it. I didn't know that JR Ward was going to continue the series beyond just the brotherhood. It sounds amazing! Maybe I should give it another try. :)

  7. wow,you wrote a great review!
