Re: Who's your fav leading man from :The Black Dagger Brotherhood?

My favorite was always Butch. But, Phury had been a close second since Lover Awakened. Now I think he is in the lead.

He's just so classy and smart. I think all he needs is a stylish pair of reading glasses and he'd be my fantasy incarnate.

Re: Who's your fav leading man from :The Black Dagger Brotherhood?

It is so hard to pick only one favorite leading man for The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

 

Wrath is the King and most powerful of the brotherhood.  His shellan is Beth.  He has the tendancy to look out for everyone even though he has limitations (which of course does not stop him).  I truly like his character. 

 

Rhage is a close second.  His shellan is Mary. I think he was given the raw end of the stick.  The beast in him would stop anyone from getting close to him (making him feel un-loved and no good), but Mary changed that.  Rhage has gone through so much and it think he is the underdog of the group.

 

Of course all of the Brotherhood clan has gone through so much; I think because of it; it makes you want to read more, and continue with the series.  You want to know each of the characters story.

 

Personally, I just started reading the books last year, and I am Truly AMAZED the series is so hard to put down.  J. R. Ward is an AMAZING author!  I have read 9 of the 10 books; I currently am reading the last book as we speak.

 

All that I can say is WOW.

Re: Who's your fav leading man from :The Black Dagger Brotherhood?

I too am a big fan.

I read that JR Ward announced that the next book will be Qhuinn and Blays-----I am so excited! i , along with so many others have been waiting for this book for what seems forever!

 

I love rhage and Z. when i first began the series, i had decided to skip Z's story because in dark lover i thought he could not be redeemed and he ws just a psychopath. but i gave it a shot- and i am so glad i did! his story is great. the way he loves bella totally and still thinks he is unworthy broke my heart through the story!

i am still waiting for lover reborn- im hold 2 at the library.

Oh Cheyenne, you will not be disappointed, and i love the series too. You know how you read a series and there's one character that you have to have their story, it was Paris for me in the Lords of the Underworld but in this series it seems that JR teases and tempts me so much that it's always the next in the series that I want. And i can't wait to read Qhinn's, oh and no spoilers but wait til the end of Lover Reborn, you will EXPLODE !!  okay enough teasers :smileyhappy:

So hard to pick. Zsadist was such a tortured hero, and Wrath and Butch - I love them all!

Re: Who's your fav leading man from :The Black Dagger Brotherhood?

I read Lover Reborn back in April and thought that it was very good. I've also seen teasers for Lover at Last and I think this may be the best book yet!
