This is my top favorite Paranormal Romance book series ever, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I L-O-V-E this series! When I started reading the first book of the series (Dark Lover) I thought to myself, this is what I never knew I wanted to read. And it was.
Every book focuses on a main character (mostly on a Brother of the Black Dagger Brotherhood) and their mates. It is the ultimate dark/paranormal romance/alpha males/swoon worthy book series written so far.
Highly recommended, hands down!
It has to be read in a reading order.
Book 1: Dark Lover — The first book of the ongoing series focuses on the Blind King, Wrath son of Wrath. He is the only purebred vampire left on earth, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. When Darius, one of his fighters is killed, leaving his half-breed daughter, Beth, unaware of his existence or her fate; but not before asking the King for a favor. To make sure that his daughter passes through her transition from a half-breed to vampire, alive.
Book 2: Lover Eternal — Rhage is the beautiful but oh so cursed one. Cursed by the Scribe Virgin and possessed by a deadly dragon he is the most dangerous one. Unless he is in the battlefield, he has to be careful when his inner dragon is unleashed. Mary is fighting a curse of her own, she is a survivor and yet when it comes to life, she is always way too close to loosing the battle. And when Rhage falls in love with her, his inner beast can’t help but want to claim her too.
Book 3: Lover Awakened — Zsadist is a former blood slave. He has the marks to show of it. With both inner and painfully etched on his skin scars, he was the least of all of them to accept love, let alone fall in love and find his mate. Bella is from an aristocratic family but no one is safe when it comes to the evil Lessening Society. Zsadist rescues her from the Lessers and Bella saves his from himself.
Book 4: Lover Revealed — Butch O’Neal is a fighter by nature. More so than he thinks. He is an ex-homicide cop and even though in the first book (Dark Lover) he was in love with Beth, the half-breed Queen, he now finds himself deeper within the Brotherhood than he could ever imagine. Especially now that Marissa, the King’s former mate, may be the only one who can save his life.
Book 5: Lover Unbound — Vishous could be considered sort of a royalty. He was after all son of the Scribe Virgin. And like anyone who comes to contact with her, he too has his curse to show of it. He loves pain and has no interest of love. Least of all with a human. Dr. Jane Whitcomb saw his heart, literally. And if he loves pain, then so does she. Even if she can’t be herself anymore.
Book 6: Lover Enshrined — Phury has made the ultimate sacrifice for the good of the race. Releasing Vishous from his obligation, he becomes the new Primale of the Chosen which means he is now obligated to procreate in order to ensure that the race will survive. As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants him for herself.
Book 6.5: Father Mine — Father Mine is a novella about Zsadist and his mate Bella and their daughter Nalla.
Book 7: Lover Avenged — This book is about Rehvenge (and his mate Elena), brother-in-law to Zsadist and half symphath, a member of the vampire aristocracy and the “Princeps Leahdyre” of its council. He is the mob guy and an unofficial ally to the Brotherhood.
Book 8: Lover Mine — This is the story of John Matthew/Tehrror and his mate Xhex, a symphath assassin. John is the reincarnation of Darius, the half-breed Queen’s father. His traumatic past and the fact the he is mute, John is not safe even with the Brotherhood’s compound. He was meant to become a Brother though.
Book 9: Lover Unleashed — Payne is one of those who know what the Scribe Virgin is capable of. She is the twin sister of Vishous. She is a fighter by nature and by no means a Chosen. A lot like her twin, she finds herself injured and in the hospital where she is treated by a human doctor. Nursing a paralyzed vampire back to health was not in Manny’s to-do list but being inside the Brotherhood opens up a whole of information about his life that he ever thought he’d find out.
Book 10: Lover Reborn — After loosing his shellan, Wellesandra, Tohrment left the Brotherhood. Hunting down Lessers is his mission in life. Tohr was returned weak and emaciated to the Brotherhood by the fallen angel, Lassiter. He is the only one who can help him move on from the traumatic loss of his former mate and their son, in order for them to be free and move on to the Fade.
Book 11: Lover At Last — Qhuinn had always been on his own. And then the Brotherhood came along. He became a fighter, someone special. Being with a Chosen was a choice he made, fully knowing what he was giving up. Blay had been in love with him for years, silently waiting for a moment he thought would never come. But being in the Brotherhood means being closer to death than most.
