The King

Book 12, The Black Dagger Brotherhood - A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


J.R. Ward's # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response--or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out... or tortured legacy take over?

From the Hardcover edition.

Lover at Last

This book was all I wanted and more. The perfect climactic ending to a great story. Ms. Ward did not disappoint and in my humble opinion, her best to date.

Love the series- BUT not my favorite

I love this series! It's world is detailed and captivating with characters that inspire emotional attachment. I'm going to be honest and say that this book wasn't my favorite. I was looking forward to the continuance of the original power couple. The King and Queen that started it all! There were so many different storylines going that we maybe had those characters in play once every three chapters or so. I found myself skimming over a large portion of the book because it wasn't appealing to me or I really wanted to see what was next in a specific storyline and not wait another 50 pages for it.

Love your books

I absolutely love all your books since I picked up my very first one when I Glover came out is when I fell in love with the serious my favorite characters Beth wrath, I felt like an all your books that I'm part of the book that when the characters are celebrating I'm right there celebrating with them I absolutely enjoyed this reading and reading about my favorite characters again had tears of joy in my eyes!!
