Book Review: The King - J.R. Ward
Long live the King...
After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle--with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything--and everyone--at risk.
Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she's unprepared for Wrath's response--or the distance it creates between them.
The question is, will true love win out...or tortured legacy take over?
3/5 stars (liked it)
Hard to believe this is the 12th Black Dagger Brotherhood I have read. Did not think that another book was needed on Wrath but I was proven wrong. This story is about Wrath the king and Wrath the husband. This book also contains many other characters and possible pairing. Such as Sola and Assail, whose story began in the previous book and continues in this one. Also the shadow brothers Trez and iAm and the chosen Selena. Xcor also going after Layla and her being pregnant the entire book, no mention of her at the end which I thought was strange. Something going on with John Matthew and some seizures he's having, not fully explained. Overall a good book but wish some things would have been resolved, I guess that will be left for another book.
