J.R. Ward--Lover Reborn (Black Dagger Brotherhood)

Paranormal Romance-Vampire

In the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. The city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Now back in the Brotherhood - and unrecognisable as the vampire leader he once was - Tohrment is physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair. When he begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolating netherworld - Tohr turns to a self-serving fallen angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. When he's told he must learn to love another to free his former mate, Tohr knows they are all doomed . . .

Except then a female with a shadowed history begins to get through to him. Against the backdrop of the raging war with the lessers, and with a new clan of vampires vying for the Blind King's throne, Tohr struggles between the buried past, and a very hot, passion-filled future . . . but can his heart let go and set all of them free?

{5 stars}
Reborn is an apt title. Everything is reborn in this one. I, myself, felt the series had "stalled" a little with Payne's story, and was really hoping that Ward would be able to pull off Thor's story.  She did not dissapoint. This is so much more than just Tohr's story though, John and Xhex, Quinn and Blay, Lassiter, Wrath's rule. All things are reborn in this book, new life has been given to our favorite couples, and the "war" is taking on a whole new path, and with it a new urgency to get to the next book. Yes, I have read the spoilers regarding the next one, AND I CAN NOT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON IT!. There have already been so many great reviews on this book, so I will not rehash what has already been wonderfully stated. If you are a fan of this series, you will fall in love with it all over again. If you have not read them, what are you waiting for? Run out and start collecting them in hardcover like the rest of us, you will become a BDB junkie like the rest of us......
