Lover Enshrined (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 6)

J.R. Ward
In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other—six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. And now, a dutiful twin must choose between two lives... Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood's bloodlines alive. As Primale of the Chosen, he is to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished. As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself- she sees the emotionally scarred male behind all his noble responsibility. But while the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, and tragedy looms over the Brotherhood's mansion, Phury must decide between duty and love.

Not as good as previous stories this is the story of Phyry and his coming to terms with being the chosen (or not) and the growth of his first mate. It's also the story of John, and his friends and a growth of power of the Lessers.

It's a bit of a mess of a book, several of the plotlines could have been abandoned and used in another book and it would have made this one tighter and flow better. I do get the why of a lot of the storylines and many of them are concurrent but still it didn't keep my attention as well as some others in this series.

Still quite readable though.

I will admit, this book confused me. Only because I accidentally started reading it before the book Lover Unbound which comes before this book. It was really interesting though. I liked how it didn't just focus on Phury, but it had Zsadist's point of view, Qhuinn's, and John Matthew's as well. I feel like I got to know more of the characters personally. The fight between the Lessening Society and the Vampires is getting more intense too. This has made me more eager to read more of the books to see what happens. I also liked that Tohrment came back in this book. I was wondering when he was going to come back into it, and was delighted to find out that the guy in the Adirondack Mountains was actually Tohrment. I can honestly say I can't wait to read the rest of the books (I'm going to go back, so I can read Lover Unbound first though)
