Review: The Chosen by J.R. Ward

The Chosen

Title: The Chosen

Series: Black dagger book 15

AuthorJ.R. Ward

Genre: Paranormal Supernatural vampire romance



BlurbA scorching forbidden love threatens to tear a rift through the Black Dagger Brotherhood in J. R. Ward’s newest novel in the #1 New York Timesbestselling series.

Xcor, leader of the Band of Bastards, convicted of treason against the Blind King, is facing a brutal interrogation and torturous death at the hands of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Yet after a life marked by cruelty and evil deeds, he accepts his soldier’s fate, his sole regret the loss of a sacred female who was never his: the Chosen Layla.

Layla alone knows the truth that will save Xcor’s life. But revealing his sacrifice and his hidden heritage will expose them both and destroy everything Layla holds dear—even her role of mother to her precious young. Torn between love and loyalty, she must summon the courage to stand up against the only family she has for the only man she will ever love. Yet even if Xcor is somehow granted a reprieve, he and Layla would have to confront a graver challenge: bridging the chasm that divides their worlds without paving the way for a future of even greater war, desolation, and death.

As a dangerous old enemy returns to Caldwell, and the identity of a new deity is revealed, nothing is certain or safe in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, not even true love . . . or destinies that have long seemed set in stone.


Thoughts:

It’s okay, going back to reading the earlier books. This series is definitely not “we need to put this series on a pedestal and worship it” Compared to Ecstasy Unbound / Guardians of the realms or Wicked Waves/Sharon kay’s world this isn’t that great. I found it lackluster especially since I’m not really a vampire romance reader. Later edit: I got up to about book 8/9 and got very bored of it that I dropped reading this.
