My review on Darius by J.R. Ward


Where is this book listed in a series?

This book starts the entire series into the world of Black Dagger Brotherhood. It’s here we learn about Darius, and how he’s built this wonderful place that sat vacant for years and how Wrath was not interested in leading his race into a new era. It’s also where we even learn about Beth’s parents. The queen of the race, Wrath’s partner in everything. It was such a touching and moving story that I was crying a few times because of how Darius never understood the bonds of being a bonded male and how even though his mate did not understand his way of life or understand anything about him. He was able to love her and respect her wishes no matter. Their one night of passion was the only night he would have with her for his eternity, and he would respect her wishes and never bother her again. He didn’t even know she was pregnant with his only child. It was wonderful to see how the other brothers were around even though they were all scattered about and living everywhere and no where until Wrath decided later on to lead his race against the lesser’s and their leader the Omega.

After spending a few days reading this book from cover to cover, I know understand the entire series a lot better. This was Darius’s story and how things have happened in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood novels. I have read quite a few of these books in the series now, and I’ve always been happy with how it has always carried over with the brothers, their partners, and their entire world. J.R. Ward’s writing is still spot on, and regardless of what some may say, I am happy to have found that very first book that brought me into the world of Black Dagger Brotherhood. Seeing how the brothers interact within their race, outside of their race, and then when they have partners to share the love they do have buried deep down inside themselves. I fall in love with the brothers, and their families. I am just one person that thoroughly enjoys reading her novels and love the brothers, and their world. It’s a place that I can escape into and feel like I’m watching a long running TV series with the brothers. I do know that sometime in the future there will be a TV Series on a platform called Passionflix, but I’m not too sure if I want to subscribe to it just to watch it, when I can envision everything in my mind. I can picture the cities, the skyscrapers, the houses, all of it very well within my imagination so I don’t know what to do. I may watch it from time to time, just like I did with other book series that have been turned into TV series. I do recommend reading Darius if you’ve even seen a tidbit of any of the other novels to start your journey into the BDB world. So I give this book a 5 star review. I really enjoyed it, and will continue to follow the entire BDB world until she stops writing them, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.
