#1 J.R. Ward’s # 1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood continues as a royal bloodline is compromised by a grave threat to the throne..

Long live the King

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them. The question is, will true love win out… or tortured legacy take over?

Silvana's Review
I spent the last two weeks in an almost solitary state reading the BDB series in anticipation of The King. Really who needs sleep, I was in a race against time to finish so I can get my hands on The King as soon as it was released. I knew neither JR nor Wrath will disappoint.
BEST book in the series SO FAR, or I could be biased because Wrath is my favorite;
We see Wrath throughout the series growing more weary, more resentful of his fate and more protective of Beth. I am so glad he got another book as I felt he was shortchanged in his first one. I loved seeing him shed a lot of his worries and how his love for Beth strengthens, their relationship growing stronger.
We start this book with a look at Wrath’s parents, Wrath and Anha, what a wonderful insight into their first meeting . My first glimpse of Wrath in The King had me swooning. Wrath is completely and utterly devoted to Beth, his love for her knows no bounds so does hers. He struggles between giving Beth what she needs and his fear that by doing that, he will end up losing her.
In The king, we get a clearer picture of Wrath, we view past events that make him who is, and present events that drive him into becoming a true king; In a way Wrath was reborn and a new dawn has arisen.
As usual, we have stories within a story and multiple perspectives . I loved reading about beloved characters and being introduced to new ones
Assail and Marisol, Not sure how I feel about these two yet.
Trez and Selena, Bestill my heart, I loved these two together. So Glad to hear that the next book will be about Trez and iAm.
XCor  and Layla,  seriously Layla needs her own book ASAP.
s’Ex and iAm, I would love to read more about these two, especially iAM, his personal revelation to Beth in this book had me intrigued.
My favorite moments from the book are too many to list.
The wedding, Rhage and Lassiter were hilarious.
The needing. Wrath’s words to Beth, swoon, can he be more perfect.
Little Warth, already in love with the little fellow.
Anytime Trez appeared.
I have to reiterate that this is my favorite installment, no need to wax lyrical about JR Ward’s writing and her ability to engage the reader, the books speak for themselves. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
