Book Review: Lover Unbound, by J. R. Ward (2007).


The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. 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 a human surgeon, Dr Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner ain and taste true pleasure for the first time – until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that does not include her…


Book five of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series is Lover Unbound authored by J. R. Ward. This has to be one of the more far-fetched of the novels this far. Not only does Vishious fall in love with a human, who is compromised in so many ways, he has a paternal revelation as well as the discovery that he nearly becomes the Primale, the breeding stud of his kind.

In this Novel Butch and Vishious also come to an understanding about their taboo relationship. Which is one twist I really hadn’t expected. It’s a tough topic to pull of and continue to keep the masculinity of the characters from disappearing completely. Kudos to the author. The whole erotic fantasy between Jane and V is something of an acquired taste but a good read all the same.

There really wasn’t any important input from the lesser faction to note but I am sure that the new the novel will bring them back threefold.

John’s story continues to heat up now that he has gone through his transition and is a huge vampire to boot. He has a variety of obstacles to overcome before life will settle down for that male.

Overall this novel has been an interesting read and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the vampire romance genre. I give this book a rating of 5/10 stars.
