A big "thank you" to VampFanGirl of Lovin Me Some Romance for sending me an autographed copy of Lover Avenged by JR Ward!!!!
Warning: Spoilers alert!!! Don't read further if you do not want to read spoilers.
This book was better than Lover Enshrined. Still not up to JR Ward's old quality. Or, it could be that the Black Dagger Brotherhood (BDB) series has worn off a little of it's novelty on me. At least there was no embarassing sissy soprano singing...
It hasn't really been fully explained why Rehvenge shouldn't kill the sympath Princess... It looked to me like it would have been so much simpler if Rehvenge killed her and a whole lot more sensible. But then I guess we wouldn't have a book...
Still worth reading. If for nothing else, then, for better appreciation of the next book in the series. In the hopes that the next book would be better...
Rating: 3 cherries out of 5
Genre: urban fantasy
Caldwell, NY, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It’s also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and notorious nightclub that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he’s approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King, and leader of the Brotherhood. Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood, even though his sister is married to a member. Because he’s a sympath, his identity is a deadly secret- the revelation of which will result in his banishment to a colony for sociopaths. And as plots within and outside the Brotherhood take their toll against Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in a darkening world- Elhena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him- and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.
