The King: A Novel Of The Black Dagger Brotherhood

by J.r. Ward

New American Library | April 1, 2014 | Hardcover

The King: A Novel Of The Black Dagger Brotherhood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
J.R. Ward''s # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read Series ! I believe this book is # 12 in the series of The Black Dagger Brotherhood, and this series is a must read ! I cried, laughed and chewed my finger nails completely off while reading this book. J.R. Ward has such a talented gift of bringing this imaginative world to life, so much so that it makes me want to become the next "shellan". This book felt like a crucial introduction to future installments of the master plan but still leaves me desperate for the next addition(s).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Although it is a transition book, I love the development in all the story lines and look forward to the books that will be specific to each individual story line. Can't wait for the drama (and love) to unfold one by one!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I loved the Kings and hope it leads onto more stories of the Warriors. Like babies for Butch and Marissa, Phurry and Cormia, and how Qhuinn and Layla made out in their arrangement with their baby. And Xcor and Layla also. Sola and Assail and of course The Band of Bastards, they need to be told about too. Looking forward to the next book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scattered This instalment was a disappointment. It should have been a tip-off that the title didn't have "Lover" in it - like the previous 11 books. This was definitely a "transition" book - to set up future books. There were too many narrators (at least 10!), a scant amount of romance, and almost no war. The story tries to center on Wrath (my least favourite of the brothers), but even then the plot is scattered and lacks focus. After book 1 in the series, this one is probably my least favourite. I only "recommend" this read if you are committed to the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a J R Ward... Enough Said The King is book twelve in J R Wards amazing Black Dagger Brotherhood series and I loved it from start to finish. This book follows Wrath and Beth who we met in the very fist book of this series, I thought it was great that we got another book featuring this couple because they bring the series to a whole. Even after twelve books I never get bored reading these, this was one of most anticipated books of this year and I am sure it will be one of the favorites as well. The story was fantastic, the continued development between the characters and story were off the charts and I cant wait to see who is going to be next. Overall this book was amazing and sooo worth the year it took to come out, cant wait for more.

Read from the Book

One Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, Present “Give me your mouth,” Wrath demanded. Beth tilted her head back and leaned into her mate’s arms. “You want it? So take it.” The growl that came out of that massive chest was a reminder that her man was not, in fact, a man. He was the last purebred vampire left on the planet—¬and when it came to her and sex, he was fully capable of going wrecking-¬ball to get at her. And not in the stupid-¬ass Miley Cyrus poser-¬sex way—¬and provided Beth was willing, of course. Although really, when a woman had the opportunity to get with six feet, nine inches of hard-¬ass dressed in black leather, who just happened to have pale green eyes that glowed like the moon, and black hair down to the aforementioned concrete posteri-or? No was not just out of her vocabulary; it was a foreign concept. The kiss that came at her was brutal and she wanted it that way, Wrath’s tongue thrusting into her as he shoved her backward through the open doorway of their secret hideaway. Slam! Best sound in the world. Well, okay, second-¬best—¬number one being what her man made when he came inside of her. At the mere thought of it, her core opened even further. “Oh, fuck,” he said into her mouth as one of his hands slipped in between her thighs. “I want this—yeah . . . are you wet for me, leelan.” Not a question. Because he knew the answer, didn’
