Review: Lover Avenged By J.R. Ward

Lover Avenged

By JR Ward

April 2009


Rehvenge is used to living in the shadows and dealing with the roughest night walkers around-including the Black Dagger Brotherhood. As his secret identity as a sympath is threatened, he turns to the only light in his ever darkening world- a female vampire untouched by corruption, who’s the only thing standing between him and eternal damnation.

Normally a book would take me a day or too, if its really long. I am talking a super novel. But an average novel takes me less then a day.

This book took me from the day it was released until tonight, March 20, 2010 to read the entire thing. Yea that is like 6 months or so. I was rather disappointed the first time I tried to read it I was looking for something completely different. Last night I promised myself I as going to finish it if it killed me. And it almost did. I head hurts and my eye burn but damn it its done. And after going back through it and rereading some chapters and pretty much the begining again I have to say it was a whole lota book. We have plots and subplots, angles from everywhere and bad guy good guy reversal and the dead being brought to life. Old characters that we missed are making an appearance. And it just wasn’t about two people trying to find their love through horrible times, it was the onging saga of the Brotherhood, and now the Sympaths. The family is getting bigger.

The thing I find that I liked about this book, is that it felt like I was on a rollercoaster from hell. I was pissed off, hungry for more and tearing up at the same time. Yeah that is a lot to pack into a book.

Now I have to let you know I bought this book as a HC and I think for the price I paid for it I believe it justified the expense. There was love, anger, jealousy, betrayal, anguish and distrust. And it  was great.

I recommend this book in paperback, the hardback is huge and made it diffcult to sit and read. If you have an ereader that is better. Either way read it.
