When Ahmare’s brother is abducted, there is nothing she won’t do to get him back safely. She is unprepared, however, for the lengths she will have to go to save his life. Paired with a dangerous but enticing prisoner, she embarks on an odyssey into another world.

Duran, betrayed by his father, imprisoned in a dungeon for decades, has survived only because of his thirst for vengeance. He has been biding his time to escape and is shocked to find an unlikely and temporary freedom in the form of a determined young female.

Battling against deadly forces and facing unforeseen peril, the pair are in a race to save Ahmare’s brother. As time runs out, and the unthinkable looms, even true love may not be enough to carry them through.

REVIEW: Prisoner of Night is the story of Duran & Ahmare.  These aren’t Black Dagger Brotherhood characters or story but it is within the Black Dagger Brotherhood world. Duran has been a prisoner for twenty years, he has suffered all sorts of tortures, but he hasn’t been broken and he has never given his captor the information he craves.

Ahmare’s brother has been abducted by a ruthless man who battled hand in hand with the Blackletter, Chalen’s cruelty is immeasurable and she knows her brother may already be dead. She has taken it upon herself to liberate him from Chalen’s claws and she may die trying. But as she comes face to face with her brother’s captor she knows that she is in for more than she can probably handle. But in order for her to get her brother back, she must complete another job, it is then when she is given the weapon to make it all happen.

I enjoyed this latest story by J.R Ward. There is more angst in this story that I have seen in other stories of the BDB. Ahmare is intelligent, loyal and strong. She follows her heart but trusts her mind to make the right decisions, I enjoyed how well grounded she was and how she didn’t give in to self-doubt and uncertainty. Duran was a great character as well, even after all he had to suffer he rarely gave into self-pity. He understood that in order for him to move forward he had to eliminate everything that was part of his past.

The story was well crafted as almost everything Ward writes. These characters each brought something important to the story. The subject matter, as well as the story narrative, is nicely crafted & carefully exectuted. Overall, Prisoner of Night is a nice story that explores the scars left by torture & hate and the deeply emotional consequences of cultism.
