Quotes:

John: „Some things are destined to be — it just takes us a couple of tries
to get there.“ (Lover Mine)

.

John & Xhex: And it was funny. The silence of him had a bizarre effect on her. Normally, she was the quiet one in situations, preferring to keep her own council and not share her thoughts on anything. But with John’s mute presence, she felt curiously compelled to talk.
I’m stuffed,“ she said, lying back against the pillows. As he cocked a brow and lifted the last Danish, she shook her head. „God…no. I couldn’t manage another thing.
And it was only then that he began to eat.
You waited for me ?“ she said, frowning. When he ducked her gaze and shrugged, she cursed softly.
„You didn’t have to.“
Another shrug. As she watched him, she murmured, „You have beautiful table manners.“
His blush was the color of Valentine’s Day and she had to tell her heart to calm the fuck down as it started to beat fast. (Lover Mine)

Quote:

Xhex: „No, you’ve got it all wrong, John.“
Reading his emotions, she shook her head.
„You’re not half the male you could be because of what was done to you. You’re twice what anyone else is because you survived.“ (Lover Mine)


.

Now some pics of John and Xhex:

Quote:

John thinking about Xhex: John leaned in and pressed his lips to hers; then he stretched out beside her. His body was exhausted but, his heart was alive with a joy so pure it was like the sunlight he didn’t get to see anymore: He was a mute-ass motherfucker with a nasty past and a night job that involved fighting evil and slaughtering the undead. And in spite of all that…he’d gotten the girl.

Name: Rehvenge

His Book: Lover Avanged (Racheengel & Blinder König)

Nature:
Vampire, a friend of the Black Daggers. Brother of Bella – Zsadist’s Shellan.

About:
Caldwell, New York, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. It’s also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and owner of a notorious night club that caters to the rich and heavily armed.

Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood-even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him-and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction. (Source: Goodreads.com)

Best Friend: Trez, Xhex

His Shellan: Ehlena

Ehlena: „She was glad she didn’t know where it would take her. Because sometimes the only thing that
got you through hell was that you were in too deep to pull out.“
(Lover Avenged)

.

More of Rhev:

.

Quote:

Rhev: „This was why people got mated, Rehv suddenly thought. Fuck the sex and the social position. If they were smart, they did it to make a house that had no walls and an invisible roof and a floor that no could walk on-and yet the structure was a shelter no storm could blow down, no match could torch up, no passage of years could degrade.
That was when it hit him. A mated bond like that helped you through shit nights like this.“
(Lover Avenged).

Quote:

Rhev to Ehlena: „No matter what you wear… to me, you will always have diamonds on the soles of your shoes.“

Name: Tohrment

Nickname: Tohr

From the book series: Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward (» Website)
His Book: Lover Reborn

Nature:
Vampire, a Brother of the Black Daggers

About:
Now back in the Brotherhood – and unrecognisable as the vampire leader he once was – Tohrment is physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair. When he begins to see his beloved in his dreams – trapped in a cold, isolating netherworld – Tohr turns to a self-serving fallen angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. When he’s told 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? (Source: Goodreads.com)

Best Friend: Wrath (Darius, already dead)

First Love/ Shellan: Wellsie (dead)

His Shellan now: No’One (Autumn, later in the book of Lover Reborn)

Quote:
Tohr (thinking): „Nobody wanted to frontline on the network news, the papers, the magazines. This down-low tenet was the single thing that the enemy and the Black Dagger Brotherhood agreed upon, the only deference that was given by both sides. So, yeah, the slayers could say … target your pregnant shellan, shoot her in the face, and leave her for dead, taking away not just her life, but your own. But God forbid they rile up the humans.
‚Cuz that would just be wrong“!
(Lover Reborn)

.

In this picture he’s still together with Wellsie:

Quote:

Tohr: „You never knew the last time you were seeing someone. You didn’t know when the last argument happened, or the last time you had sex, or the last time you looked into their eyes and thanked God they were in your life.
After they were gone?
That was all you thought about.
Day and night.“
(Lover Mine)

Tohr & No’One: „Instead, he stopped and looked at her. She had her fingertips up to her lips, her eyes wide and full of wonder… as if she had never felt anything even close to what she just had. He went back to the bed. ‚Was that you first kiss?‘
She blushed in the most lovely pink, her eyes dropping shyly to the carpet. ‚Yes.‘
‚You gonna let me give you another?‘
No’One: ‚Yes, please…‘ she breathed.
(Lover Reborn)

Name: Blaylock and Qhuinn

Nickname: Blay / Qhuinn

From the book series: Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward (» Website)

Nature:
Vampires, both are friends of the Black Daggers and they live in their mansion.

Best Friend: John Matthew

About:
Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another….
Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young- just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.
Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions… but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together… finally become one.
(Synopsis from ‚Lover at Last‘)

.

Quotes:

Qhuinn: „What is wrong with you, that you care so much about me?“
Blay: „What is wrong with you, that you can’t see why I would?“

.

.

Blay: „Say the word. Say the word and I wont go.
Say the word, Qhuinn. Do it and I’ll spend the night with you.
Better yet. Why don’t you just kiss me…“
(Lover Mine)

.

Qhuinn (thinking): No one got forever. And it was fucking crime to waste what you were given.
Enough, Qhuinn thought. Enough with the excuses, and the avoidance, and the trying to be someone, anyone else.
…..   It was time to be a male.
As Blay starrted to straighten, like a message had been received, Qhuinn thought, That’s right, buddy.
Our future has come.
(Lover Reborn)

Blay: ‚In the silence that followed, Blay knew he had something he was supposed to say. Yeah…it was right on his tongue. It was… Shit. With Qhuinn looking at him like that, he couldn’t remember his own name. Blaysox? Blacklock? Blabberfox? Who the fuck knew…‘

Qhuinn to Blay: „You guys were what got me through it,” Qhuinn heard himself say. “I lived for the night, because I could go over to your house. It was the only thing that kept me going. You were the only thing, actually. It was…you.“

‚Lover Unbound
by J. R. Ward

Black Dagger Brotherhood # 5/

First Sentence:
“ ‚Just take it, Jane.‘
Jane Whitcomb grabbed the backpack. ‚You’re still coming, right?‘ „

Last Sentence:
“ Without another word he dematerialized back to the life he’d been given, the life he was leading… the life he now, and for the first time, was grateful he’d been born into.“

Synopsis:
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… (Source: Goodreads.com)

My thoughts about the book:
I love this book, I love the characters in it, I love the main story, the stories beside, I love the beginning, the middle part and the great end. I love all in it, especially Vishous and Jane, but also John, Zsadist, and so on. There is only little which I would have like a bite in another way, but that are just peanuts. The fifth book in this absolutely adorable great book series is the best one so far and I can’t believe it that it was over so fast. This book has made me cry, laugh, think and the whole time I was like handcuffed 🙂 but not only to Vishous and Jane but also to the other things which happened all around.

Part 5 tells the story about the background and history of Vishous who couldn’t have had a more brutal childhood in a fighter camp of his father. Not only he has to fight against the other pretrans to get enough food to survive, but also his father, who was a sadistic vampire, used every possibility not only to abuse him but also to mutilate him. Vishous is carrying these scars not only on the outside on his skin, but also in the inside, which force him to live his preferences at sex in the violent way. But then he gets shoot and Dr. Jane Whitcomb saves his life and with her authoritative direction, she doesn’t only catch her patient but also the man inside, who feels the wish to be bond to her. But it wouldn’t be Ward’s style if she lets everything happen without any complications and they both would be happily ever after so easy. No; at first Vishous has to face his past, has to admit his mother and to go through his destiny and his responsibilities, because he has to overlook the big picture, to ensure the future of his kind.

Even if I have already thought that part 1 or part 3 are wonderful, then I have to say that it’s getting better and better and part 5 reached a new exhilarating level. Not only from the love story which stands in the focus (and which are always great) but also because off all the things which happens around, like the thing with the Lessers or with John Matthew and his friends or with the virgin of the writing. I like it so much that we get insights of the lives of the different people and always several supporting plots run side by side till they get together to one big plot – so fantastically that I’ve no words for it.
Therefore I’m really very curiously about what will become of John Matthew or what will happen to Phury and Cormia and whether they get together or whether Bella keeps her baby and survives the birth or what the Lessers will use against the vampires in their next plan? The tension rises with every book and it tickles on the skin, so urgently is the need to read on.

I have become a gigantic fan of this series and I can only thank Ward for her great work and I will read the books over and over again or declare parts of it to my personal treasure.
And now that I’ve finished this book again I’ve to admit that I’m really sad because I simply don’t want it to be over so fast again. I want more of Vishous and Jane and the other warriors who can be brutally hard, but are at the same time also intelligent and sensitive.
Therefore at this point I would like to use the quotation of Paul Sweeney, because I couldn’t express my feelings any better concerning the Black Dagger books:

„You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.” (Paul Sweeney)

Cover:
The style is the same like the other book covers in this series, though here I like the picture more as well as the coloring.

All in all:
The absolutely best book in the Black Dagger series so far und I can’t get enough of it. Please more, more from the brother and from the vampires and from all of it!!!

Rating:
5 of 5 points (I loved it – Buy it!)

Quotes:

Jane:  Stop it.  Do not feel safe with him. The Stockholm Syndrome is not your friend.

Vishous: She was staying. A little longer.
V smiled to himself. So this was what winning the lottery felt like.

Buch: „Like I said, my man, it’s whatever. You and me? Same as always, no matter who you screw. Although… if you’re into sheep, that would be tough. Don’t know if I could handle that.”

Vishous and Jane: V settled back against the pillows and measured the hard line of her chin.
„Take off your coat.“       „Excuse me?“
„Take it off.“    „No.“        „I want it off.“
„Then I suggest you hold your breath. Won’t affect me in the slightest, but at least the suffocation will help pass the time for you.”

Vishous: „I love you. And I’m going to keep loving you even after you don’t know I exist“

‚Seelenjäger‘ & ‚Todesfluch‘
by J. R. Ward

(Lover Unbound)

Black Dagger Brotherhood # 5/
Black Dagger #9 & #10

First Sentence:
„»Nimm ihn einfach mit, Jane.«
Jane Whitcomb griff nach dem Rucksack. »Du kommst aber trotzdem, oder?«“

Last Sentence:
“ Ohne ein weiteres Wort dematerialisierte er sich zurück in das Leben, das ihm geschenkt worden war, das Leben, das er führte … das Leben, für das er jetzt, und zwar zum ersten Mal, Dankbarkeit empfand.“

Klappentext vom Buchcover:
Als der Vampirkrieger Vishous in einem Kampf gegen die untoten Lesser schwer verletzt wird, liefert man ihn, noch bevor die Bruderschaft der BLACK DAGGER ihn aufspüren kann, in ein von Menschen geführtes Krankenhaus ein. Im St.-Francis-Hospital rettet Doktor Jane Whitcomb dem Vampir mit einer Notoperation das Leben. Kaum schlägt er die Augen wieder auf, weiß Vishous mit unumstößlicher Sicherheit, dass Jane die Eine ist, die Frau seines Lebens. Doch ihr seine Liebe zu gestehen, erscheint unmöglich. Denn Jane ist ein Mensch, und Vishous‘ Vergangenheit holt ihn immer wieder ein. Als die Jungfrau der Schrift auch noch den Entschluss fasst, Vishous zum Primal machen, dem Mann, der eine neue Generation von Vampiren zeugen soll, steht die Liebe des grausamsten Kriegers der BLACK DAGGER zu seiner Lebensretterin endgültig auf dem Spiel …

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Ich liebe dieses Buch – ich liebe die Charaktere darin, die Hauptgeschichte, die Nebenstränge, den Anfang, den Mittelteil und das tolle Ende. Ich liebe alles darin, besonders Vishous und Jane, aber auch John, Zsadist usw. Es gibt wenig, sehr wenige Dinge, welche ich vielleicht eine Spur anders gewollte hätte, aber das sind Kleinigkeiten. Der fünfte Teil ist der absolut Beste in der ganzen bisherigen Reihe und ich kann es noch gar nicht fassen, dass es vorbei ist. Das Buch hat mich zum Weinen gebracht, zum Lachen, zum Nachdenken und ich war die ganze Zeit über wie gefesselt 😉 aber nicht nur von Vishous oder Jane, sondern von allem, was auch rund herum passiert ist.

Band 5 erzählt die Hintergrundgeschichte und Herkunft von Vishous der keine brutalere Kindheit im Kämpferlager seines Vaters erleben hätte können. Nicht nur, dass er sich gegen andere Prätrans durchsetzten musste, um genügend Essen zum Überleben zu finden, nutze sein Vater jede Gelegenheit um seinen eigenen Sohn zu quälen, zu demütigen und seinen Willen zu brechen. Er schreckte auch nicht davor zurück ihm unzählige Misshandlungen zu zufügen, sondern verstümmelte ihn ebenso. Diese Narben trägt Vishous nun nicht nur äußerlich zur Schau, sondern auch im Inneren, welche ihn zwingen seine Vorlieben beim Sex auf die brutalere Weise auszuleben. Erst als die Ärztin Dr. Jane Whitcomb sein Leben rettet und ihm gebieterisch Vorschriften macht, erreicht sie ihn nicht nur als Patienten sondern auch als Mann, der den Wunsch verspürt sich zu binden. Doch es wäre nicht Wards Stil, wenn alles von Anfang an glatt gehen würde, und die Beiden ohne Probleme gemeinsam glücklich sein könnten. Nein; zuerst muss sich Vishous seiner Vergangenheit stellen, seine Mutter anerkennen und seine Pflichten nachgehen, die das große Ganze im Auge haben und nicht das Glück von nur 2 Personen, um seine Rasse für die Zukunft zu sichern.

Auch wenn ich gedacht habe, dass der Teil 1 oder Teil 3 großartig sind, dann muss ich sagen wird es von mal zu mal besser und Teil 5 hat wieder ein neues, berauschendes Niveau erreicht. Nicht nur von der Liebesgeschichte her, die im Fokus steht (und die immer toll sind) sondern auch rund herum spitzt sich alles immer mehr zu, um die Lesser oder um John Matthew und seine Freunde oder um und die Jungfrau der Schrift.
Ich finde es klasse, dass man Einblicke in die Leben der verschiedenen Personen bekommt und immer mehrere Handlungsstränge nebeneinander herlaufen und sich zu einem großen Ganzen zusammen bilden – so fantastisch, dass ich keine Worte dafür finde.
Daher bin ich schon furchtbar neugierig darauf was mit John nun passiert, was aus Phury und Cormia wird und ob sie auch zu einander finden, ob Bella ihr Baby behält und die Geburt überlebt oder was die Lesser als nächsten Schlag gegen die Vampire einsetzen wird. Die Spannung steigt mit jedem Buch und es kitzelt auf der Haut, so dringend ist das Bedürfnis weiter zu lesen.
Ich bin ein riesiger Fan dieser Serie geworden und kann Ward nur für ihre Arbeit danken und ich werde sicherlich die Bücher immer wieder lesen bzw. Teile daraus zu meinem persönlichem Schatz erklären.

Und nun, da ich fertig bin, muss ich zugeben, dass ich traurig aus dem Buch heraus gehe, weil ich einfach noch nicht will dass es schon wieder vorbei ist. Ich will mehr von Vishous und Jane und den anderen Kriegern, die brutal hart sein können, aber gleichzeitig auch intelligent und sensibel sind.
Daher möchte ich an dieser Stelle das Zitat von Paul Sweeney verwenden, denn besser könnte ich meine Gefühle bezüglich den Black-Dagger-Bücher ausdrücken:

„You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.” (Paul Sweeney)

Cover:
Wie immer im gleichen Stil wie die anderen Covers in der Serie auch. Obwohl mir hier das Bild, wie auch die Farbe besser gefällt, als bei den anderen.

All in all:
Der absolute beste Teil bisher in der Black Dagger Reihe und ich kann nicht mehr genug davon bekommen. Bitte mehr, mehr von den Brüdern und von den Vampiren und allem was es zu bieten hat!!

Rating:
5 of 5 points (I LOVED IT – buy it!)

Quotes:

Jane:  Stop it.  Do not feel safe with him. The Stockholm Syndrome is not your friend.

Vishous: She was staying. A little longer.
V smiled to himself. So this was what winning the lottery felt like.

Buch: „Like I said, my man, it’s whatever. You and me? Same as always, no matter who you screw. Although… if you’re into sheep, that would be tough. Don’t know if I could handle that.”

Vishous and Jane: V settled back against the pillows and measured the hard line of her chin.
„Take off your coat.“       „Excuse me?“
„Take it off.“    „No.“        „I want it off.“
„Then I suggest you hold your breath. Won’t affect me in the slightest, but at least the suffocation will help pass the time for you.”

Vishous: „I love you. And I’m going to keep loving you even after you don’t know I exist“
