Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2)

J.R. Ward
Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover—for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him. Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships, is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage’s protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. Her faith in miracles was lost years ago. But when Rhage’s intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves…

I'm glad I got the omnibus for books 1-4 or I probably wouldn't have read this book. I really liked the story of Rhage and Mary Luce. I thought they were very sweet together and I enjoyed reading about them. I also liked the story of all the secundary characters and I liked that Mary wasn't a push over. Rhage made for a great hero and I really liked him. His story with 'the beast' was interesting.

There are once again many POV's, but I found that less annoying then I did before. You find out how Wrath and Beth are doing and the story with the lessers continues. I found this book to be a lot more suspenseful and I really wanted to know what would happen at the end of the book. But Rhage and Mary have their own HEA.

I did find the ending to be very rushed. It made the whole ending seem a little ridiculous, because it just happened within about 4 pages all of a sudden.

Great book and I'm glad I continued with this series.
