Black Dagger Brotherhood #7

I think this was my second favorite book of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  I totally loved Rehvenge!  I love that his character is so strong and bad because of him being half Symphath and half vampire, but the fact that he can overcome his weaknesses and fall in love is totally awesome.  The books before this one only made him out to be this mean vampire who was a pimp and a drug dealer.

This book is the story of Rehvenge a half symphath half vampire breed who's identity remains a secret with the use of dopamine and antivenin medicine to control his symphath side. One night while picking up his medication at the clinic he meets Ehlena a nurse at the clinic. He instantly falls in love but is afraid that Ehlena will find out about his dark secrets. I totally loved the part when Ehlena came over to Rehv’s penthouse and he had a romantic dinner for her. It was the sweetest thing. I fell in love with him at that moment. It was so cute how he tried to make everything perfect for her. I felt bad for Rehv when he wanted to be with Ehlena, but knew that if she were to find out who he really was, she wouldn't want to be with him anymore. Not only does Rev hide the secret of his true identity and takes medication to keep it hidden, he also has "meetings" with a Symphath Princess who loves scorpions and torture. He needs all the medication he can get.  

The war between the Brotherhood and the Lessers is still ongoing and it takes a sudden turn for the worst when someone known to the Breed becomes a lesser.  This book was awesome and I highly recommend it and suggest you read the whole series.  You will fall in love with all the characters.

Summary: 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... 

Caldwell, New York, 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 owner of a notorious night club 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, 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.


  1. This was one of my ultimate favorites too of the series!!

  2. Oh my, the BDB series is an all time favorite of mine. I love them all! I'm a bit obsessed with the Brothers and Rehv. There is something fantastic to love about each one of them.
