Book Review: Blood Fury By J.R. Ward

Blood Fury
(Black Dagger Legacy #3)
By J.R. Ward

A vampire aristocrat, Peyton is well aware of his duty to his bloodline: mate with an appropriate female of his class and carry on his family’s traditions. And he thought he’d found his perfect match—until she fell in love with someone else. Yet when his split-second decision in a battle with the enemy endangers the life of another trainee, Peyton has to face the idea that his future, and his heart, actually lie with another.

Novo, as a female in the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training program, feels like she has to prove herself to everybody—and she has no interest in being distracted by falling in love. But when Peyton proves to be so much more than a rich playboy, she is forced to confront the tragedy that has broken her soul and closed her off from love.

As the two grapple with Novo’s past and Peyton’s present, another couple must contend with an erotic connection that is unparalleled—and potentially scandalous.

Saxton, who has had his heart broken, discovers in himself a deep-seated attraction to Ruhn, a new member of the household. But will the other male explore the connection? Or will he close his mind and his heart to what could be true love . . . and cost Saxton everything?

Book Review:

This was the first book by this author that I read without skimming in years. If you visit my review of the last two books in this series you'll recognize the theme of me asking: "Why couldn't this be just one story". Though I still wish that each character had their individual books I loved these stories in particular. All the breaks in-between were stress inducing and harsh, though everything tied beautifully in the end.

Novo was such an exciting character to get to know because she's always been mysterious and closed off in past stories. I like how she does things and deals with things in her own way. She doesn't need anyone but welcomes Peyton in anyway. 

Peyton proved to be a good person throughout the story. It's sad that it took that horrific accident in the field to make him realize that who he "needed/wanted" wasn't Paradise after all. I liked seeing him evolve and I would love a side story about him and Novo a few books from now.

Saxton and Ruhn was such an adorable couple. I liked the continued respect they had in their peer groups before and after they became a couple. Though it was the second main storyline in this novel I was very invested in their happy ending. Ruhn reminded me of Zsadist in a few ways and made me root for him even more. The almost end had me on the edge of my seat hoping the author wouldn't do to Ruhn what she did to Doc Jane (V's shellan), which to be honest, I hated.

The ending was amazing for quite of few characters and showcased Oskar's inability to act and say no to something he clearly didn't want. I don't feel any sympathy for him because of what he did to Novo. I don't want to see a happy ending for him. Though I would adore another novel in this series featuring Romina or someone else from this new group of fighters!

My Favorite Quotes:

"Truth, like trust, had to be earned."

"Life, after all, was so much more than nostalgia e regrets."

"In order to move forward, you had to let the past go - and sometimes that meant mental shifts that happened on the inside [...]."

My Rating:


  1. I've been meaning to start the Black Dagger Brotherhood series for ages, but never got around to it! Yes, I guess it's because there are too many books and I fear that the story might get draggy like you mentioned with the first two books of this series. :( I've read and loved the Night Huntress series though. Have you read it? If you have, would you recommend BDB to me? :)

    1. If you loved the Night Huntress series By Jeaniene Frost you'll probably like certain aspects of BDB and Black Dagger Legacy series. I've reviewed/fangirled over the Night Huntress series on this blog throughout the years. I adore that series!

      The first few books in the original BDB series are more action than romance, but they get steamier with every release. I will also say that I only read the first 4 books in the BDB original series and, from I remember, they were great (though I did skim through a few POV's). You don't necessarily have to read them all because they are standalones in a series, but I'm guessing you'll get the most out of it if you do buckle down and read them in order of release date. Gook luck!!
