REVIEW: Lover Reborn by JR Ward


Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been a heartbroken shadow of the vampire leader he once was.

Seeing his beloved in dreams—trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld—Tohr turns to the angel Lassiter to save his former mate. The only way to rescue her is for Tohr to love another. As war with the lessers rages, and a new clan of vampires vie for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between an unforgettable past and a hot, passion-filled future. But can his heart let go and set all of them free?

This book is really hard to read. I'm happy that Tohr and No'One are each able to have a second chance and all, but they each have SO much to overcome. I also have trouble seeing them together. That's not so much because of who they are as people as it is because of everything Tohrment had and lost. I'm so happy for his moving on and all, it's just something I'm not capable of relating to so I just can't fully comprehend the ocmplexity of his position and their relationship.

There's a lot of other storyline in this book that I can talk about! The Wrath stuff (don't want to give away any spoilers) had me on edge and freaking out. John and Xhex made me sad for a while. Quinn's story is building hardcore, especially where Layla is concerned. Those two make me happy in a kind of strange way. You'll have to read to understand that I guess. This book left me anxious for the next one!

Bottom Line:

Lover Reborn had a lot going on, some of which is exciting and some of which is rather sad. For me, this was another installment that was all about the overall series story arc than the individual romance.
