Our customer reviews

The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider's Guide will be welcomed by die-hard fans of J.R.Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Firstly, it contains a novella previously only available electronically, Father Mine, which is a charming short story about Zsadist's coming to terms with fatherhood. This is followed by the Brotherhood Dossiers, a section each for Wrath, Rhage, Zsadist, Butch, Vishous and Phury which details vital stats, a cute interview that J.R.Ward conducts with each character, a summary of each of the first six novels in the series, detailing the characters, and places and craft comments providing analytical insight into how each novel was created. This last section gets a bit tedious and some of it seems a bit self-serving. Ward follows this with advice for writers, the original BDB proposal and deleted scenes, some of which are quite interesting. Kicks and giggles reprises some of the best exchanges between the characters and Ward's favourite LOL moments. The banter between the brothers is always a strength in these novels. The Message Boards is meant to add more to this fun section but is rather ho hum. Slices of Life are interesting bonus pages that add to the whole BDB experience; Q and A is also interesting and the BDB Time Line is a handy inclusion. Finally, a cute section where the brothers interview J.R. and In Memorium, a slice of life dedicated to Wellsie. A must-have for BDB more

I really enjoyed the insider guide of the brotherhood. The interviews and boards make you see another side of the brotherhood, the way they act around the house with each other, which is hilarious at times. But the main reason why I give the book 4 stars is the Father Mine novella, it was beautiful. I love Zsadist's book and was very excited to read how he connects with his daughter, Nalla. Fortunately, the novella lived up to my high expectations. Bella and Zsadist are still one hot couple, and are also loving parents to their little Nalla, who has them and everyone else in the mansion wrapped around her little finger =)show more
