Hello everyone, welcome to our Meet the Boys of the Black Dagger Brotherhood event, where this March we celebrate J.R. Ward’s seriously hot and deadly, vampire warriors.
I first entered into the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood on my holidays last June. After many, many, many, many (you get the idea!) enthusiastic recommendations from fellow reviewers Vickie and Gemma, I downloaded the first three onto my Kindle.
I’m personally always a bit nervous about reading books people have recommended because they really, really love them, and you may get that moment when you pick them up and think… ‘Huh? What’s all the fuss about?’ Thankfully I didn’t get that moment! And like Vickie and Gemma before me, I fell I love with those BDB boys. My journey and our shared enthusiasm on Twitter also encouraged both Rebecca and Melanie to pick up the series too.
It’s taken me nine months, reading them around my normal review schedule, but I’ve now read them all, leading up to the much anticipated release of Lover At Last.… God, I so can’t wait to pick it up!!
Now don’t get me wrong, this series has its quirks. The names for starters – Vishous, Zsadist, Payne, Tohrment – they’re pretty awful and they’re spelt wrong *shudder*. Then there’s the language, if I had a swear jar for every time the word ‘shitkickers’ is mentioned I think it would have paid for me to buy the entire series all over again! And don’t get me started on the acronyms…
But, niggles aside, pretty much all the books have been un-put-downable. Pacy, well written, dark, with characters that totally absorb you, many a night I found myself reading much later than I planned desperate to find out what happened next.
I hope you enjoy the reviews, I will also be pulling in Gemma and Vickie and some of the other BCC ladies for a couple of fun discussion posts along the way too…. it wouldn’t be right without them now would it! For those of you not into the series (I don’t believe you exist 😉 ), don’t worry we’ll still be posting normal reviews throughout the month too.
