Lover Reborn (BDB#10) by J.R. Ward

Lover Reborn (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #10)“Other than ahvenging his dead, he might as well be in the blessed Fade with his family. Frankly, the latter would be preferable -- and who knew, maybe he’d get lucky tonight. Maybe in the heat of a fight he’d suffer a catastrophic mortal injury and be relieved of his burden. A man could only hope.”

Well if that doesn’t just tell you the tenor of this book nothing will. Thorment is lost. Lost in his pain. Lost in his misery. Lost in his emotions. Just lost. I gotta say I was nervous the first time I read this knowing the heartache that was the focus of Lover Reborn.

No’One/Autumn was so import to this story in so many ways. Along with JM and Xhex ( It feels like a continuation from the last book.) I shed a lot of tears which is a testament to Ward and her writing ability. The emotions are heavy and she plays with the hard and soft so well. For as much as I cried I laughed too.  After my reread I really do feel this is one of her best.

So many story lines in this one…. I’ll save time and just add it in below :)

Now the good stuff, a list of my favorite moments. Hopefully not to spoilery.

The countdown is on! Lover at Last is out March 26, 2013


This was a very long book... took me longer to finish than I thought but it was so worth every single minute. This was my absolute favorite of this series. I cried... boy did I cry... had to grab my tissue box and keep it handy. J.R. Ward has an incredible talent for creating characters that are so completely damaged and broken that you think that they will never be able to be anything but damaged. But then she slowly peels away the layers of that character to reveal that small glimmer of hope... and then she takes that and builds these characters up and re-creates them. It is such an emotional journey and I love it! These books just keep getting better and better. Now I need to take a breather for a while... thought maybe I could swing right into Lover at Last but I need some air! Whew... :)
