Review: Dark Lover
In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing their enemies-the lessers-more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed, leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate, Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.
First thoughts, wtf with the names? Rhage, Wrath, Tohrment! These are actual names of the actual characters! Okay so they are all pretty cheesesauce, but I can move past that. I don't need great names to make a great book. I need great writing.
The beginning of this book was very slow. I almost put this book down. I honestly did. I didn't though because I had heard such wonderful things about it. I pushed through and even though this wasn't the bestest book I've ever read, it was rather entertaining.
I may or may not read the rest but at least this one wasn't a total waste of time.
