From #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward comes an unforgettable story of passion and vengeance in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.
When Ahmare’s brother is abducted, there is nothing she won’t do to get him back safely. She is unprepared, however, for the lengths she will have to go to save his life. Paired with a dangerous but enticing prisoner, she embarks on an odyssey into another world.
Duran, betrayed by his father, imprisoned in a dungeon for decades, has survived only because of his thirst for vengeance. He has been biding his time to escape and is shocked to find an unlikely and temporary freedom in the form of a determined young female.
Battling against deadly forces and facing unforeseen peril, the pair are in a race to save Ahmare’s brother. As time runs out, and the unthinkable looms, even true love may not be enough to carry them through.
I really enjoyed the story, but it pulled me entirely out of the story line of the main series. I really wish these stand alone novellas had been put in a series or sub series of their own so the momentum of the main series could continue unhindered. This literally has no tie to the rest of the series other than it’s behind and ends in Caldwell, NY. This was one of the better audiobooks because again the tracks are each chapter instead of the random 3-5 minute divisions.
It’s clear that there is a bit more that could have happened. The end to the main enemy was a bit rushed and anticlimactic but overall I enjoyed this novella ♥️
An Exciting adventure
This is a novella set in the BDB world, and of course, I loved it but what was strange is that none of the characters where known. There wasn’t one brother or Shellan in the bunch. It was weird, to say the least. The story was no less fascinating, exciting, and I am left wondering how these characters will fit into the larger BDB world? Because it seems once Ward writes about them once we will see them again in a big way. So my curiosity is more than piqued.
I am giving Prisoner of Night: The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 17, 5 Boundless stars, although it didn’t fit with the rest of the series, it was still an excellent and exciting adventure.
