REVIEW: There should be a law against books such as The Beast – especially when they leave you feeling empty, like nothing else exist out there on the same level of awesome. The Beast is J.R. Ward’s best Blackdagger Brotherhood thus far and I am going to tell you why you should read it.
The Chosen: Layla she seems to be going through a phase where she can’t stop her feelings and thoughts about Xcor. Her relationship with Xcor though it has ended it is still very much present in her mind and heart – she doesn’t know how and why but she must stop thinking about him for the greater good because she feels her feelings betray the very people who opened their arms and heart to her. I think Ward did a great job exploiting Layla’s feelings towards Xcor – I think the way in which she did it gave her story a lot more substance than we have seen in the past. I think Layla has finally realize that she too deserves happiness even if it means she must sacrifice.
Vishous: One of the most powerful males in the brotherhood is finally opening up a bit more, while he isn’t necessary spitting out his feelings about what goes on around him we do get to see how the things that didn’t necessarily affected him before seem to be getting a bit more under his skin. I enjoyed Vishous’s part in this book not because he is the epitome of hotness and power but because we finally see him react towards his mother and his relationship with her, about Jane and about all that seems to be changing around him.
The Beast/Rhage: Oh Rhage, the wonderful Hollywood. He is such a treat to read about. His story has always touched my heart and the way in which it continues to develop is just wonderful. Though we know his relationship with Mary is one to go forever his feelings have been taking into a roller-coaster ride. Ward did a superb job with Rhage’s story. We were given an inside look into his relationship with Mary and into their lives, their desire, their needs and emotions. There were many surprises and also very sad moments. But overall Ward gave us a story that covered all its bases, from the relationship hiatus to the overwhelming passion and love that exists between these characters to the exciting new members that have become part of them.
Mary: Mary is such a wonderful character, this book explores her emotions deeply, it exposes her vulnerability without taking away the nature of her character and the strength that seems to keep her and Rhage afloat and all throughout adversity. I enjoyed how well played out her scenes were. Mary is one of those characters one can’t help but adore, she is strong but sensitive she is loving and intelligent. I really enjoyed how Ward created so many difficult situations that would’ve broken her spirit but she managed to find the balance to make it all work.
Overall, this book covers so much more than I expected, new alliances, new family members, dissapereances, birthdays, and of course love. This is perhaps the best book in the BlackDagger Brotherhood thus far. I recommend everyone to read it, read it slow soyou can enjoy these characters and their story.
