Series Review: The Wrath & the Dawn / The Rose & the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

Book Review: Admiral by Sean Danker

Book Review: Blood Kiss (Black Dagger Legacy) by J. R. Ward

Book Review: Blood Kiss (Black Dagger Legacy) by J. R. Ward

I was overjoyed when I first learned author J.R. Ward was going to create a spin-off to her popular The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. She didn’t disappoint. Blood Kiss, book 1 in Ward’s new Black Dagger Legacy series picks up the story from BDB’s Shadows. A new character, Paradise, decides to join the re-vamped training program despite her Glymera upbringing. To counteract the main […]
