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 more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood. The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.
Il fatto che l'abbia letto in due giorni cataloga automaticamente il romanzo fra i "page-turner". Quello che trascina irresistibilmente in avanti il lettore sono le relazioni fra i personaggi, il modo in cui sono presentati, l'ambiente in cui si
..." muovono: in sostanza, la Confraternita stessa, per quanto "tamarra" (ammettiamolo!) sia. I punti di vista sono ben gestiti, e anche se la protagonista ha i tratti di una Mary Sue fin troppo "perfetta", ci si ritrova comunque schierati dalla sua parte. È apprezzabile il fatto che sappia il fatto suo, non si lasci intimidire facilmente e sia disposta a lottare per quello a cui tiene. Il lato più debole del romanzo sono le scene d'azione: poche, ma soprattutto mal scritte, poco credibili, tirate via. Mi sento di consigliare la lettura a chi ama il genere romance (con un po' di tenerezza, oltre al solito machismo, e una protagonista che non sia un'inutile ameba) e quello erotico, ma chi ama l'avventura e l'azione resterà deluso.Continua...Nascondi
Ooh, ooh what a find!! I've been constantly hearing about the Black Dagger Brotherhood series in all the paranormal forums and I have to say I was actually put off a little bit by how people loved it so much because I always find myself disappointed
..." with a book when its recommended to me by loads of people. I suppose I shoot myself in the foot because I expect too much. However, this book lived up to all the hype and in a year when my reading pace has slowed incredibly due to work and whatnot, I finished this within a day or two.
I adore Wrath, he is just this wonderfully complex character who deep down is just a big softie. Beth was very likable as the main female character and she kept her independence and strength throughout the book which made me like her more. I loved all the other brothers, even Zsadist who I think will mellow out in future books. The plotline was original and still is even though the vampire genre has expanded dramatically since this book was released in 2005. Ooh I have to give a mention to Butch, cute or what? Please let him remain in future books!
I loved this and would rate it as definitely in the top ten of my favourite books, maybe even the top five but I'll wait to see what future books hold. Oh and I very nearly forgot to mention the sex. Oh the sex people... If you're in any way prudish stay clear but if you're not (like me!) enjoy!!Continua...Nascondi
Wrath stared at the paper. The writing ran together, a meaningless, blurry scrawl he had no hope of deciphering no matter how hard he squinted."Fritz!" he called out.The butler came rushing in."Read this."Fritz took the sheet and bent his head,
...t and bent his head, falling into silence. "Aloud," Wrath bit out. "Oh. [...]"Continua...Nascondi
And how's that going to go? You're just going to walk up to her and say, 'Hey, I know you've never seen me before, but I'm your dad. Oh, and guess what? You've won the evolutionary lottery: You're a vampire. Let's go to Disneyland!' - Tohr
