Author J. R. Ward Unmatched in Writing and Fan Interaction

Dead After DarkI just bought the DEAD AFTER DARK ebook strictly for The Story of Son novella by J. R. Ward, though I look forward to being introduced to the works of Kenyon and the others too.   I’ll update this post with my ratings of each story once I finish but I had to just stop and say Author J.R. WARD is Stunningly Unmatched IMO

Not that other authors don’t come close. I have a few other favorites and Richelle Mead (particularly Vampire Academy) runs a close second, topping that list.  But I am completely enthralled with every character, world and scenerio that author J. R. Ward has ever dreamed up and published so far.  I haven’t read this one (inside Dead After Dark) yet but the Black Dagger Brotherhood novels rank overall above of every other book series I’ve read (over 150 vampire and paranormal romance books over the past nine months!)

Covet: A Novel of Fallen Angels

Covet: A Novel of the Fallen Angels

BDB novels are definitely adult though so don’t buy them for teens and don’t read them lightly.  They are not like simple erotica by any means (way too developed for that), nor are they too complex to grasp without intense concentration and mapping like some paranormal sci-fi books.  They are just very well developed and intricately, captivatingly written.  And J. R. Ward is as obsessed with her characters as we are… thankfully. 

I also can’t wait for her new series COVET releasing this September!  This new series builds on the world and characters introduced in BDB including Marie-Therese,  last seen working at club Zero-Sum, who will become Covet’s main heroine.  We will also enjoy drop-in appearances by the brothers and their shellans, Lassiter and other BDB characters.  Indeed, “Angels on Harleys” may well be the only concept that could ever complete with BDB! Keep up with all this great info on the BDB Forum and Yahoo Group!
