Lover Reborn

 Lover Reborn
 J.R. Ward

Amazon Blurb -
Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now, fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy. When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams—trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquillity of the Fade—he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. But because Lassiter tells him 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? 

Well she's done it again! I really enjoyed this book, the story behind it, the new bad guys, all of it. I loved that there wasn't much of the Lessers and the Omega, NO Scribe Virgin, Woo Hoo!!! I'll get right to the point. Wellsie and their infant son is stuck in the vamps version of Purgatory for lack of a better term, and she is begining to fade into nothingness. Lassiter is trying to help Tohr release her once and for all so the two can move on to their "heaven".  The problem is it involves another woman and Tohr is having all sorts of struggles with that.

Along with Tohr's story you have John Matthew's and Xhex's marriage hitting a bit of a rocky point due to her being independent and a fighter by nature, and him being, well, a bonded male who doesn't want her to be out there.  You have the new bad guys, Band Of Bastards led by Xcor who want to kill Wrath with some help from the Glymera.

We get to see just a bit of Blay and Qhuinn interact.  I have heard that their story will be next. I'm also curious to see what is going to happen with these bad guys, especially since Xcor who never cared about anyone, much less a woman, is suddenly very attracted to one of the Chosen.

This book moved quickly for me, even with it's 500 and something pages!  I borrowed it from the Library since I'm trying to not buy if I don't have to, and collecting this series really isn't that important to me any more.  I have most on my kindle, but the couple of paperbacks I had went to  I look forward to the next, which probably won't be till 2013 sometime *sigh*  Can't these authors write any faster, we're all dying to see what happens to these characters!  LOL

  1. I borrow the hardcovers from the library too and then buy the paperback when it becomes available so I can reread the books or at least parts.. but I'm starting to think I don't even need to do that anymore. If I re read any books of this series it's usually the first three.

    Anyway, I read this one pretty quickly. Lots of dialogue and things going on at a pretty fast clip. I liked the story a lot.. once again the side stories really help hold the book together, because the romances have been rather weak in recent books. I like Tohr and No'One.. I found the scenes between her and Xhex very touching, by the way.. but I think No'One was VERY shortchanged in her relationship with Tohr. I don't think he ever put No'One first.. above himself or above Wellsie. They never had a 'Mine' moment and they never bonded. Very crucial to a BDB HEA and it never freakin' happened. Other than that, I really liked this one, too and can't wait for the next.

  2. I agree about no'one, Christine. Just her name alone kinda ticked me. There was never any bonding scent, nothing. But she still was able to pull off a decent story :)


Please take a minute to leave a comment. Good or bad I always read them : ) and respond.
