In going into Lover Reborn, I wanted to keep in mind something that JR Ward alluded to in the BDB companion book, that Tohrment's book was to be the conclusion of the original ten- part series, and in a lot of ways, it is. From now on, we have to form real attachments to new characters, none of which are brothers (yet), and some of which may not even turn out to be good guys. Had Ward decided not to flesh out Qhuinn, Blaylock, and the Band of Bastards, this would have been a good conclusion to what has been a great series. Lover Reborn is a great example as to how a series could be ended to the satisfaction of long- time readers, and given what occurred during those last few chapters, remind them what made them start reading the books in the first place. But I'm glad she chose to flesh out the newer characters, because when you enter a world as interesting as Ward has created, you never want to leave it. From now on, it is a kind of new world, familiar in many respects, but different in all the ways that keep you reading.

The issue most had with Lover Unleashed was how little we found ourselves invested in Payne, a character I still find underdeveloped, and frankly, unimportant to the whole world (though I'll look forward to being proven wrong in future installments). But here, here's the brother I think nearly all of Ward's readers are fully invested in, the brother nearly all of us want to save. Except how he gets saved is a source of division in readers. Is it fair that some Brothers get their HEA, even after they've died, but Tohrment does not? Why does Wellsie have to be the one who doesn't get saved? What makes their love somehow less than V's or Rhage's?

Sorry to be blunt, but in life, as in fiction, its just not always fair.

Lover Reborn is the 10th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and is the story of the last original Brother, Tohrment, and the female character No'One. In the first 3 books, Tohr was the most stable of the Brothers as he had been happily bonded to Wellesandra (Wellsie) for almost 200 years. Wellsie is a featured character as Tohr's beautiful, devoted, pregnant mate, and a loving surrogate mother to pre-transition John Matthew. In Lover Awakened, Wellsie is murdered by a Lesser and Tohr disappears in agony as he has lost both Wellsie and his unborn son. He is found by the angel Lassiter and brought back to the Brothers, having tried to die so that he could be reunited with Wellsie in the Fade. With help from Lassiter, Tohr begins to pull himself together; he feeds again and vows to slaughter Lessers in Wellsie's name for the remainder of his life but remains a shell of his former self.

In Lover Mine, we learned that 300 or so years ago No'One was the sheltered daughter of the leader of the glymera when she was abducted, raped and terrorized by a sympath, then left pregnant. She is rescued by a very young Tohr and Darius and brought home where she is rejected by her family who see her as no longer perfect. Virtually catatonic, she stays with Tohr and Darius who care for her for the duration of her pregnancy though as soon as she gives birth to baby Xhex, she kills herself using Tohr's knife. She spends the next 300 years in Sanctuary with the Chosen where she performs the functions of a servant and takes the name "No'One". Ward somewhat mishandled this initial introduction as the character came across as weak and uninteresting, and one who abandoned her newborn baby (Xhex) upon committing suicide.

I will say that just like every one else, I love the BDB brothers although I haven't loved every book. Phury's story did nothing for me, and the story between Payne and Manny left me cold (although there was so much V, Butch, and Doc Jane that the book was redeemable to me). I will also say that I love the dialogue that Ward writes. Very clever, biting, and engaging. Now having had my little love fest, I have to say that this book has me baffled. I am with every one else who was not a fan of this book. Really??? Tohr should just get over Wellsie and the baby after a year or two? I have no problem with Tohr. Exactly what a brother should be. And I guess I could see hime with someone else just not with NoOne and not the way this played out. She was so vanilla she was invisible to me. NOOO personality. I would expect that if Ward is going to push Tohr into connecting with someone so quickly, it would be someone that gets the blood pumping and engages him with some fiery attitude. He abuses her over and over and she just takes it and says thank you can I have some more please. Ick. He deserves so much better. Where was the bonding scent? Where was the I can't live without you feeling? There wasn't any. Just a casual I'm in love with you. Snore. I think the readers that are in love with this book are just going to like anything JR Ward spews out but I need some consistancy when I fall in love with a series and I think we all deserve better than this misfire. I know that JR Ward has it in her to do better. It's not like she put out one good book and the rest were crap. PLease Please Please bring back the story telling that we all love. I need my escapism.
