  • Sophia Triad
    “You tortured the male I loved for two decades” What I love mostly in the BDB series is that the heroes and heroines are less than ideal. And they never had an easy life. They have all suffered somehow and they all have survived and surprisingly they joke about it frequently.Let's think about it.●The King himself, Wrath, is blind. He has lost his parents growing up. He blames himself because he did not help them.●Phury is not whole. He ha...

    Beautiful & tortured Duran so broke my heart. Few authors could do tortured Heroes/heroines? the way JR Ward could. The only difference was how I felt after reading. Torture in books written by other authors only succeeded in driving me away, no more, one and done. I loved the way Ahmare saved him. Totally deserved five extra stars! If you loved the Shadows in the previous BDB books, there was kick ass Nexi, another Shadow for you to fall in love...

    Prisoner of Night is a quick novella length read that packs a punch.Ward submerses the reader into her story telling with dark and graphically descriptive circumstances that will make the light-hearted reader cringe. That being said, I wouldn't have wanted to miss this shorter additions to the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.Fast paced, bone chilling, goose-bump raising, and a perfect example of why J.R. Ward is the queen of storytelling.I receive...

    3.5/5 - *** EDIT *** Gallery is going to lose readers for Ward and the BDB series. Bad advertising and watered down everything.I’m concerned that this new publisher is watering down everything great about Ward’s work EXCEPT the language. I’m not impressed. Why are there swords instead of daggers on the covers? Why are the covers weird? Why was the book advertised as a Legacy book on the UK cover and a BDB book in the US?! It’s a damn nove...
  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    One of my favorite authors, J.R. Ward, released a novella set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. As this is one of my favorite series by her, I was very intrigued to see what this little treat would be like. I’ve always believed in Ward’s writing, but wondered how her writing would fare with short stories. As you know, her books tend to be on the long side, but I’m happy to note that this story definitely fulfill my BDB fa...

    This is a novella based in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world, but can honestly be read as a stand alone story. It is based on this new couple and story line that is contained in this book. It is a good way to wade a toe into the BDB world or try J.R. Ward's writing style. I actually found it easier to read since it was solely focused on this couple and their adventures and did not flip between multiple story lines as the longer ones do. Duran ha...

    Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeThe Black Dagger Brotherhood is one of those must-read PNR series that everyone knows, reads, and loves, and for good reason. There’s nothing quite like this world of vampires and alpha-males, both of which I can never get tired of if J.R. Ward writes it. Some of my favorite bookish heroes have come from this series (RHAGE!) and for that I will forever be grateful to the Warden.In Prisoner of Night, we ge...
  • Chris C - A Midlife Wife
    A love story in the midst of violence and payback. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I never read any of the other books in the series so I am not sure if I was missing something or not. However, to me, this was a standalone. I had no issues following the story.This book smacks you in the face soon as you start it. It is raw and gruesome in parts, written with such imagery that you almost want to read it in bits and pieces due to the violence. But it also compel...

    This was the perfect little snack read while waiting for the main course, Savior, to come in April! I am a massive fan of these characters, Ahmare and Duran, and I really hope we get to visit them again in the BDB world. The absolutely creepy intro sets the tone and feel of this novella for its entirety.You do not have to have read the previous novels to enjoy Prisoner of Night. It's a great way to get to know Ward’s writing style and a bit of ...
  • Laura Elizabeth
    This wasn’t bad. But for 6$ you really don’t get your moneys worth as it can be read in under two hours. It has no tie ins with BDB at all. No idea why it’s labeled book 16.5 in that series 🤷♀ Duran and Ahmare are an ok couple. The shadow Nexi is more interesting. This wasn’t bad. But for 6$ you really don’t get your moneys worth as it can be read in under two hours. It has no tie ins with BDB at all. No idea why it’s labeled ...

    3.5 StarsI liked it, it is J.R. Ward after all! But, I fell in love with Dearest Ivie, her other novella, but I found it took me a long time to warm to the characters in this one. Plus I didn't shed a tear, normally her books have be bawling like a baby! Still it was an enjoyable, albeit slightly forgettable, read.
  • WTF Are You Reading?
    J.R. Ward presents fans of her acclaimed Black Dagger Brotherhood series with quite the irresistible treat. In the form of ebook exclusive Prisoner Of Night. Releasing January 7, 2019.Though touted as a novella. As most .5 editions of series are.Book 16.5, to be exact. Readers will be quite pleasantly surprised to find that this novella is in fact, a 300+ page novel. Complete with a very mouth watering prologue.As for the meat of the story. What ...
  • Jéssica
    O meu problema com Prisoner of Night é um problema recorrente dos últimos livros da Irmandade da Adaga Negra: a desconexão com o universo anteriormente criado pela autora, mesmo que sejam mantidos os principais elementos. Numa série que está indo para seu 16º livro, com tantos personagens que é dificil até lembrar de todos os nomes, em um enredo enviesado que cada vez faz menos sentido, a autora opta por escrever sobre dois novos personag...

    January 11, 2019DNF - Returned for RefundI read a little over a quarter of this novella before giving up. I am a little shocked that I did, because I almost never DNF books.The story has nothing to do with the BDB, but is about two 'civilian' vampires with sketchy/criminal relatives they are trying to help, or to go get revenge against. Unlike a novella I totally ĺoved, Story of Son, this started off brutal and gory, and wasn't getting better. I...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    Though by JRW standards this is a novella, this book is longer than a lot of contemporary romance novels.So what did I think.AWESOMEThis woman can do no wrong. I loved Duran (though every time I heard his name I thought of Duran Duran).Duran was the kind of male I love— broken. Which is why V is my favorite. Funny enough Z never really did it for me. Anywho, I loved him and Amiri together.Great read, wanted more. Never to end would be good. I c...

    3.5 stars. Heads up. At the time/date of this review this book is the most recent in the series. There are no BDB appearances, and no noticeable/foreseeable future connection to the series. With that said, I'm sure there will be, I'm just saying there are no visible best laid plans. So, this book was good. At times it was great, but it was not BDB good... actually not BDB at all. And Duran was kind of an emo. Z had a waaaaay more shit filled life...

    Thank you Mrs Ward for another trip in BDB world! We didn't know the characters... but who knows maybe we will see them again in the future!
  • Gretel
    It's okay although I'm really tired of dudes and their torture paradise. Honestly, the beginning almost made me hurl. I get the series is about war and there are bad people who do horrible things, yadda yadda. But this is the upteenth time we have some terrible dude torture and rape people in this series alone and I'm so fucking tired of it.I like Duran and Ahmare though this is the first time I would've loved for the heroine to get together with...

    Prisoner of NightJR WardWard takes a break from her beloved Black Dagger Brotherhood and Legacy series with a BDB side story giving fans a rare look into the lives of four civilians a brother and sister who lost their parents in the raids and two victims of a Vampire only Jonestownesque cult who find each other amidst the rubble of their tortured and shattered lives.The author pulls on heartstrings while letting her stars get plenty sweaty and bl...

    Ward always says she has a hard time writing females but I didn’t find that to be the case at all with Ahmare. She was pretty awesome, she is determined to get her brother back. Even if that means taking a dangerous prisoner (Duran) who has been locked up for over 20 years with her.They have to find and retrieve something for her brother to get released. I loved Duran, he is exactly who you would think of when you think of someone who has been ...

    I enjoy perusing author emails and newsletters particularly when I get to read excerpts from future book releases, but there is a con to all the pros, waiting for that release. I read three chapters of Prisoner of Night a few months back and I was hooked and needing to know what came next. I pre-ordered. There was no doubt this book was getting read as soon as I could. The rest was worth it.Prisoner of Night is technically the 16.5 book release i...
