From Publishers Weekly
Ward powers into hardcover with the tangled seventh title in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, picking up four months after the end of 2008's Lover Enshrined. Rehvenge, a symphath vampire who gets energy from manipulating others' emotions, is recruited by a group who want to displace vampire king Wrath, a gruff, determined vigilante. Rehvenge is also falling hard for vampire nurse Ehlena, who disdains his affections and focuses on caring for her ailing father. Ward easily juggles numerous personal and political plot lines, keeping the tension revved high while moving forward with subplots that have lingered for several books and will please longtime fans seeking resolution. New readers may be a little lost despite a helpful glossary, but the fast pace and cliffhanger ending will have fans wishing they could start the next book right away. (May)

In addition to Rehvenge, we see from Wrath's POV a lot too. It's nice to see him in action again, but my heart also breaks for him. In his struggles, though, he brings a new character to light.
Lover Avenged is both predictable and surprising and is worth the slowness of the beginning. Wrath features heavily too and that always makes me happy.
**I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.**
I also thought the tendrils of the next few books were woven in with a skilled hand. Really looking forward to more. Oh yeah, and the sex is terrific.
Rehv/Ehlena’s romance was one of the best ones yet. The whole drug lord/pimp/sympath falls for a nurse with a heart of gold and nerves of steel was captivating and for some reason I found myself teary eyed a lot as I read the hurdles they had to overcome to finally be together. My only “complaint” would be that I wished their “screen time” was longer. But that’s just how well the romance was that it left me wanting more. I hope they get more screen time in Book 8 or even have their own spin-off book. Rehv is just such an interesting, dark character and a real badass…I could read about him and his adventures for hours and hours! I hope Ward has scenes with Rehv in the colony later on, and expands on his trials dealing with his current status as King of the Sympaths.
Wrath…I was so happy that Wrath got some extra “screen time”. I loved Wrath’s side story and his interactions with Beth. It was good to see the King finally getting into his role as King of the Vampires. I’ve always had a soft spot for Wrath and so my heart was really going out to him as he struggled with his blindness. I would enjoy Wrath making appearances in other books.
Lash…FINALLY ladies and gentleman we have a good villain in this series! I will confess…I am one of the guilty few that simply skipped the “lesser parts” to get back to the steamy romance when it came to some of Wards earlier books. The lessers all seemed the same to me and it reminded me of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fighting against the Foot Ninja for some reason. The lessers became disposable “foot ninja” and I skimmed their parts. But that all stopped when Lash stepped into the picture and stole the show. I was on the edge of my seat reading about the Son of Evil’s ascension into power. (Also, has anyone noticed that just like in TMNT…the turtles have their Irish sidekick in April O’Neil and the Brotherhood has Butch O’Neil? Sometimes I picture shells on the Brotherhood’s backs and just lmao).
But there were even more great villains in this book too! Ward really outdid herself in this book by throwing in the Sympath Princess and her Uncle. The Princess with her Kabuki face was definitely creepy and had goosebumps running up and down my arms.
With the way Ward expertly set things up, I’m thoroughly worried about Xhex and dreading what the Prince of Evil could be doing to her at this very minute…off I go to get the next book!

In addition to details, this book is a real triumph of coincidence and easy outs. If you love the Brothers, this book will break your heart. Ms. Ward needs to keep track of, nurture, and honestly develop her story lines and character details. Or at the very least, hire an editor and listen to their input.
