Review: Lover Enshrined
by J. R. Ward
Black Dagger Brotherhood # 6
“ Time was not, in fact, a draining loss into the infinite. „
“ ‚I love you forever‘ didn’t always need to be spoken to be understood.“
Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood’s bloodlines alive. As Primale of the Chosen, he is obligated to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive, and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished.
As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body, but his heart for herself. She is drawn to the noble responsibility behind the emotionally scarred male. But Phury has never allowed himself to know pleasure or joy. As the war with the Lessening Society grows grim, tragedy looms over the Brotherhood’s mansion, and Phury must decide between duty and love… (Source: Goodreads.com)
My thoughts about the book:
I don’t know at all where I should start!! Maybe some of you already know, and okay ‘yes’, I have already made enough advertisement for the Black Dagger series, but I must say it again I’M A HUGE FAN and can’t get enough of it. But this time I try to keep it short:
The sixth book tells Phury’s confused, sad childhood in which not only he mourns his kidnapped twin brother, but which drives his whole family in a hopeless lethargy. Also centuries after Phury has saved his brother from the blood slavery, he torments himself with self-reproaches and puts himself on the blame for the tragedy around his family. Although he has chosen the celibacy as a self-flagellation for himself, he volunteers as the Primal with the intention that Vishous is released of it.
On the other side in the sanctum lives Cormia, she is a chosen and must fulfill her duty to be always at the command to the Primal to fathering the descendants whether she wants or not. At first Phury and Cormia avoid each other but soon not only their duties lead them to each other but honest feelings. But can they be happy together, or is it already too late for them? And what is with the other chosens with which Phury also should be together as the Primal of the vamp- society to father the future of their race?
Before I have read the sixth part, I wasn’t certain whom of all the characters; particularly from the brothers I may like the least. I thought it was Phury, however, this book has disabused me once again and now I also like him, although he was quite done with himself and the whole world in the beginning. By the way, like every other brother was up to now till they’ve met the woman of their life. This might also not surprise me, because we all know that the men can’t be happy without woman by their side. Am I right? They just need to us and this also made the books of Ward clear! 😀
Even if Phury is now not the character which I like the least, I’ve to admit that his and Cormia’s love story wasn’t as great as other ones, for example like Vishous and Janes or Beths and Wraths, but the rest of the book was the best for me till now. I found it absolutely exciting what happened with Lash and also when we found out what was wrong with him. But I also loved the parts with Thor, or with John Matthew, whom I really like and I read about him with great pleasure or I also like him with Xhex or John’s friends Qhuinn and Blay, they are great as well, and, and, and … there simply happened incredibly much also apart from the main story that I could never find rest and the action jumped from one scene to the other without a break! *amazing*
It was again really first-class and I’ve devoured the whole book and every time I turned the pages I checked how many pages were still left to read because I so desperately didn’t want it to end.
But eventually the greatest book comes to an end and thus it also was like that with his book. However, to my luck there are still four more upcoming books but I already dread the end of this marvelous series and when it’s finally over. *whine*
Even if I love the book, I must admit that I don’t really like this cover. Sorry.
All in all:
A versatile book, which was thrilling and fascinating without end and which I’ve devoured and which never allowed me to make a break or breathe. Top book to recommend for everyone!
5 of 5 points (I loved it – Buy it!)
Cormia: „It was hard to know what was worse: him being with her and all her sisters, or him being with none of them because his heart was held by another.“
Xhex (to John): „Next time you think of me like that , say my name when you come. It’ll get you off even better.“
Phury: “ ‚I love you forever‘ didn’t always need to be spoken to be understood.“
