Side read project: BDB books and characters

Every time a new Black Dagger Brotherhood book comes out I declare that the latest is my new favorite, but for the purpose of this post I really sat down and thought about which book and characters I loved best. The end result is that I now need to carve out a few days so that I can read them all again! These books have such a deep range and each character is compelling and emotional- I can invest my emotions and never be let down. I may not agree with a particular direction, and sometimes the outcome breaks my heart (remember Jane) but I am never disappointed.

My Favorite BDB book:
Lover Awakened- Book 3- Zsadist's story

A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society. Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her…

My Favorite BDB couple:
This was a tough decision but I really think that John and Xhex are my favorite couple because they understand each other on such a profound and unique level. Words, at least mine, cannot do them justice and I definitely don't want to include any plot spoilers. I'm only halfway through the book and they have made me feel the whole rainbow of emotions and as I've said before...I'm a character based reader so I enjoy the complexity of a well written character.

My Favorite Brother:
I love them all!! Seriously, I do. But if I was forced to choose...Vishous would be my guy. Techno savvy, super smart, dedicated, loyal, fierce, fearless- the list goes on and on. And I didn't even mention how incredibly hot he is.

So, what is your favorite book? Favorite couple? Favorite Brother? Any BDB thoughts you want to share with the class- only the PG thoughts/comments because we never know who might stop by.

For all things Black Dagger Brotherhood, visit J.R. Ward at her website.

Favorite couple? Hmm, I must say Bella and Zsadist.

I agree with you that V is my favorite brother. He's like, the whole package.

I really liked Rhage/Hollywood. And even if he isn't a "brother" I really loved Rhevenge. He and Elhena have to be my favorite couple of the series.
I am starting Lover Mine so maybe John Matthew might be my new favorite...we'll see

Just finished Lover Mine! Brilliant. Emotional. Complex. Beautiful. Words cannot express how much I loved this book. I won't spoil it for anyone but if you haven't grabbed a copy then you are missing out on one of the best stories of 2010!
