Black dagger Brotherhood Insider's Guide

Insider's Guide featuring the novella: Father Mine

Review: Black Dagger Brotherhood Insider's Guide
Publication Date: October 7, 2008
Publisher: NAL Trade
Genre: Romance, Fantasy

The Story: (J.R. Ward) Prepare to enter the dark passionate world of The Black Dagger Brotherhood and get up close and personal with each one of the Brothers…

You’ll find insider information on the Brotherhood, their dossiers, stats and special gifts. You’ll read interviews with your favorite characters, including a heartbreaking one with Tohrment and Wellsie, conducted three weeks before she was killed by lessers. You’ll encounter deleted scenes—accompanied by the whys behind the cuts—in addition to exciting material from the J.R. Ward message boards and the answers to questions posed by readers about the series. You’ll learn what it’s like for J.R. Ward to write each installment of the series, and in a fascinating twist, you’ll read an interview with the author—conducted by the Brothers. For the first time ever, you’ll get an original short story about Zsadist and Bella and see the miracle of their daughter Nalla's birth and the depth of their love for each other. Also, you’ll get a sneak peek at the much anticipated next book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Revenge’s story.

This is a compendium no Black Dagger Brotherhood fan should miss…and an insider’s guide that will seduce you as powerfully as the sexy band of Brothers and the “ferociously popular” world they live in…
My Review: The Insider's Guide actually should actually be placed between Love Enshrined and Lover Avenged, but I placed to suit my own fancy more than anything.  Sadly, it's time to start wrapping up "Forbidden Unleashed." However, tomorrow is the release day of Lover Unleashed (Woot! Woot!)!

So, a little about The Insider's Guide: it includes a ton of information on the Brotherhood, all in one place.  It's a nice little peak into not only the Brothers' world, but into the world of J.R. Ward.  We get a nice little snapshot of this amazing writer and her processes.  There's a lot of little tidbits in this book.

The most amazing part for me, though, is the novella: Father Mine. (Let's face reality here: I could read several more books with Zsadist as the main character...not likely to happen, but a girl can dream)  Father Mine continues the story of Zsadist and Bella and the struggles they encounter with the birth of their daughter, Nalla.  Lover Awakened ends on a very happy note, but this novella lets us see that Zsadist and Bella still had some rocky roads to travel.  Father Mine is poignant and helps answer a few questions that I know I had at the end of Lover Awakened.

My Rating:

*Check back later today for a look at some of the "Characters of Interest" from the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.  Don't forget, at midnight "Forbidden Unleashed: Giveaway will post.  You have only ONE day to enter for your chance to win a copy of Lover Unleashed, Book 9 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
