As with all the stories in Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood books, this group of vampire warriors is back once again defending their race against the Lessening Society of evil determined to destroy all vampire-kind.  Rhage and Mary have overcome many obstacles to their happiness and now must push through their biggest obstacles, controlling the dragon that lives inside Rhage and Mary’s inability to have children.

Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series is full of dark, sexy, and deeply troubled vampire protectors.  The stories are action packed with story threads that span across the books in the series while showcasing a different set of lovers and their problems in each new installment.  So while readers have seen glimpses into Rhage and Mary’s life over the years in prior books, it is nice to see how they have grown as a couple and how they work through their latest life obstacles.  Of course, Ward makes sure that all her most beloved characters from prior books make an appearance in THE BEAST and while it is difficult to keep track of who everyone is from time to time, it is the totality of all these characters helping each other in each book that makes this series so entertaining.

Fans of J.R. Ward’s books are sure to be pleased with Rhage and Mary’s latest story, THE BEAST.  THE BEAST is a touching and heartwarming story taking place in a world of confusion and violence that has turned out to be a wonderful 10th anniversary present to Ward’s diehard fans.
