The first novel of J. R. Ward' s New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series features a unique take on vampire lore and heavy doses of sensuality. The vampire Darius fears for the life of his half-breed daughter, who is unaware of her unusual destiny. To oversee her transformation, Darius seeks help from Wrath, a dangerous loner and the world' s only purebred vampire.
Dark Lover Unabridged
I was a little weary buying this because some of the other reviews stated that this was the abridged version. But after reading along with my own book the entire time, I can tell you that it is in fact the unabridged version, not a word is missing! Great book, I really enjoyed it as well as the others is the series. If you enjoy vampire love stories, this series is a must for your list.
Love the book, not so much the narrator
My friend suggested this series of books and after listening to the first, Dark Lover, I was hooked. Unfortunately, the narrator leaves me cold. Jim Frangione cannot hold a candle to the skill that Phil Gigante has in telling a story and drawing you in. I am about the start the third installment and believe me, if the plot wasn't so powerful, the characters so enthralling, I would not listen to this man ever again, but the books are just too good to stop.
Not the complete book
I'm only giving this 1 star because this audio book is labeled wrong. It's not the Unabridged version. It's not really the Abridged version either. It's missing a chunk of the store (a few chapters in a row to be exact. The Unabridged version should run 14h and 50min. Other than what is missing it's a great book and I can't wait for more of J.R. Wards books to be released on audiobook.
