Title: Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood #5 Series)
Author: J.R. Ward
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.
And the adventure of the brotherhood continues with Lover Unbound wherein it is primarily focused on Vishous’ story as well as Jane. Lover Unbound gives us a preview of what Vishous’ life was before the brotherhood which also helps in answering all our questions regarding this eye candy. If you’re asking who might Jane be well she’s the human doctor that treated V and somehow along the line V “kidnapped” her to help with his continued medication and recovery. Another human to add in the mansion, wonder what will Wrath do? 🙂 Teehhee
Phury also shows a significant part in this story as well as Cormina. Supporting characters are not MIA as well and this is what I love about Ward’s style. She continues to incorporate the other characters in each book making the whole series entwined with each other but also serves as a great stand alone book. The story is progressive, the characters matures as the story accelerates and the plot just keeps getting better and better. Weird thing though, V’s the agressive/S&M character in the whole brotherhood yet this book has somehow more tamed, has shorter and minimal love scenes compared to the other books. I wonder why that it – I was expecting a more vivid and detailed description but was left craving for more instead. Amazing, amazing book. Never did disappoint and would highly recommend. Giving it a 4 stars rating!
