Wrath is the King of his people. It has been a privilege and curse and it has only gotten worse. The kingdom is being taken from Wrath, which got Wrath thinking that maybe that would not be a bad thing especially if being King meant he would have to give up the woman he loved.
The King is the twelfth book to the series Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. I thought that this was a very good book. Normally in series the author doesn’t give the main characters another story but Ward did. Wrath and Beth will be the main characters in this book just like the first book.
As stated above Wrath’s kingdom is in danger. Though there is another situation that will have Wrath scared which is Beth’s need for a baby. Wrath doesn’t want a baby because that would endanger Beth who was more important to Wrath. I liked how Ward continued Wrath and Beth’s story. They were obviously happy but there were some problems that they had to work through. I liked that their story wasn’t just with them happy and everything is going great as that would be unrealistic in a marriage. There are definitely ups and downs in any marriage.
Now in the book I noted that Beth wanted a baby and she will get her wish, but with her being a half breed some things are a little different for her that I thought was interesting. What I also liked was the ending. Again it was a little corny and sappy but with everything that had changed within the book I wanted that type of happy ending.
So there is one more book that is ready to be checked out at my library but I am going to take a break from this Brotherhood. This series has been very good but I will say it can get overwhelming with all that is happening. I am going to take a break and come back to the thirteenth book which will be with Trez.
