 Vampires

The story:


In Caldwell, New York, war rages between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Now the cold heart of a cunning predator will be warmed against its will…

Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous, son of the Bloodletter, possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father’s war camp he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that cannot include her…

The view of a book addict:


I can’t help the fact that I’m in love with the brotherhood, they just had me from the first book. But this book was a little less exciting than the rest. I missed the action the other books had but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the book.
What I like most about the books is that you get the chance to learn more about one of the brothers but still get the chance to see what’s happening with the other ones.


The verdict of a book addict:

Maybe not the best book in the series but it’s definitely a good one! I really want to know what’s going to happen next for the brothers.

Review: Lover revealed ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #4) by J.R. Ward

Title:               Lover revealed ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #4)
Author:           J.R. Ward
Pages:             455
Catagory:        Vampire

The story:

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York there’s a war raging between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defender of their race. But now an ally of the Brotherhood is about to encounter his own dark desire… 

Butch O’Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard living, ex-homicide cop, he’s the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world to engage in the turf war with the lessers. He’s got nothing to lose. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who’s way out of his league. If he can’t have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers… 

Fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he’s found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls Marissa to bring him back. But even her love may not be enough to save him..

The view of a book addict:


Book four in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and I have to say with every book I love the brother more and more. When you start reading a Black Dagger Brotherhood book you just know what you’re going to get: A good story and a lot of steamy scenes. And this book didn’t dissapoint me.
I love the writing style of this author, she really knows how to make you feel sympathy for her main character. So here is another brother I’m in love with haha.

The verdict of a book addict:


Another amazing book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I can’t wait to start reading the next one!

Review: Lover Awakened ( The Black Dagger Brotherhood #3 ) by J.R. Ward

Published 18/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Lover Awakened
Author:           J.R. Ward
Pages:             434
Catagory:       Vampires 

The story:


In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other – six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. 

A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society. 

Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her

The view of a book addict:


I just finished the third book of the series and so far this is my favourite. I was a fan of Zsadist from the first book and reading his story made me even love him more. This book is the most heartbreaking one.
So many struggle with their past and through it all I’m glad the ending was so beautiful. I had tears in my eyes a couple of times in this book.

The verdict of a book addict:


For me this is the best book so far, but there are more books in this series, so maybe I’ll say the same about the next book. I can’t wait to start reading about the brotherhood again!

Theme Thursday #5

Published 14/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursday is hosted by Reading Between Pages First here are the rules:

  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.
The Theme this week is: Emotion. So here is my Thursday theme:
Bella was damn well comming home. Tonight

Rehvenge was not the kind of male who handled frustration well under the best of circumstances. So he was beyond through waiting to have his sister back where she needed to be.

( From Lover Awakened, Black Dagger Brotherhood book 3 by J.R. Ward
I know I used this book last week but I’ve decided to really take my time reading this book because the story is so heartbreaking.

Review: Lover Eternal ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #2 ) by J.R. Ward

Published 06/04/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Lover Eternal ( Black Dagger Brotherhood #2 )
Author:          J.R. Ward
Pages:             453
Catagory:      Vampires

The story:


In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other – six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Possessed by a deadly beast, Rhage is the most dangerous of the Black Dagger Brotherhood… 

Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetite. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover-for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. 

Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him. When Mary Luce is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world, she must rely on Rhage’s protection. Knowing that Mary feels the same intense animal attraction, Rhage must make her his alone…

The view of a book addict:


After reading the first book in this series I just couldn’t wait to read the next one. But I had to wait for the nice mailman to bring the book to me. So the day this book arrived I just dove right into the book.
And I wasn’t dissapointed, this book truly captured me and the storyline was heartbreaking. I hoped with every page turn that everything would be alright at the end of the book I even asked my mom ( no she hasn’t read the books just moral support ) if everything would be alright. I just couldn’t put the book down, and I wanted to read every spare moment I had between work and the rest of my life. Just as the first book there is a lot of action and steamy scenes and a whole new side to Rhage.

The verdict of a book addict:


I loved this book even more than the first one, because you know a little more about the world that J.R. Ward created in these series. I can’t wait to start reading the next book and that one is about my favourite brother: Zsadist. So after I post this on my blog I’m going to dive right into that book!

From out of nowhere a set of black iron gates appeared. As Mary jumped in her seat, Rhage hit a garage door opener, and the heavy gates split in half, allowing them just enough space to squeeze through.

Wishlist monday #8

Published 28/03/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict
Booktitle: Lover unleashed ( The black dagger brotherhood )
Author: J.R. Ward
Release date ( if known) : march 29, 2011
Catagory: Fantasy, Vampires
Goodreads summary
Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either. 

When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul. 

As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a 

centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy

Why do I want to read this book?
I’ve only read the first book in this series, but the rest of the book are on their way. I fell in love with this series by just reading the first book. But I couldn’t pre-order this book on the dutch website at the moment. That’s why this book is on my wishlist.
