  • 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...

    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...

    3.5/5 - #bdbforlifetrue it’s my handle on insta, and I want it to be forever true but damn, give me something to hold to, please! I honestly don’t know how to rate this book. I’m not impressed. And I thought it being twice as long as her other novellas it would have depth to it. This reads like one of Ward’s many subplots in the main BDB series. For me to care about these characters, any of them they to be way more fleshed out. And I feel...
  • 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 ...
  • 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...
  • Lacey (Booklovers For Life)
    Not sure I'd call this a part of the BDB series. More like the BDB universe like the Legacy books.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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...

    Ātrs lasāmgabals ar asinīm, ieročiem, badass vampīru dāmām un viņu neatvairāmajām otrajām pusēm, ļaundariem, sprādzieniem, šāvieniem un, protams, mīlestību. Tagad tik sagaidīt sērijas patieso nākošo grāmatu.
  • 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...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.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 ...

    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 ...

    ✦Review: PRISONER OF NIGHT (Black Dagger Brotherhood Novella) by J.R. Ward Date: January 7, 2019 Genre: Paranormal RomanceReviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ DonnaRated 5 Stars Wow. I’m not sure where to start on this review. It was a story about two desperate souls brought together in unsavory circumstances, and how their separate goals- and futures - converged in a single quest. Ahmare was strong and driven,...
  • AlwaysV
    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 Shadow in the previous BDB books, there was kick ass Nexi, another Shadow for you to fall in love ...

    4.5Buongiorno, lettrici!Oggi vi parlo in super anteprima della mia ultima lettura, ovvero “Prisoner of Night”, la seconda novella della serie “La Confraternita del Pugnale Nero” di J.R Ward, uscito in lingua il 7 gennaio.Per salvare suo fratello, Ahmare è pronta a tutto, anche se questo vorrà dire mettere la propria vita in pericolo. Per liberarlo dalle grinfie di un antico e crudele vampiro con cui si è indebitato, Ahmere dovrà andar...
  • Misty
    This is a nice novella, decently action packed (it's just 2 nights long or so), but it has no ties with the Brotherhood. They are mentioned exactly twice, toward the end of the novella.Duran and Ahmare are nice and there is even a female Shadow, I liked their character, the way they thought, developed, and reached some peace of mind.And yet, this novella has a couple of plot holes that made me shake my head.Like, Chalen is an old vampire, dying, ...

    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...
  • Ashley
    I really like that Ward is giving us little novellas from the world of BDB that don't involve any of the brothers. I really liked this book. It had all the feels: love, hate, revenge, pain, sorrow. Ward really knows how to pull out all the emotions in her books.Also, I really want Oreo's now. lol.

  • Beth
    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...
  • Nay Denise
    Received a copy for review.This was a pretty good paranormal romance. I enjoy reading from J.R. Ward as her writing always pulls me in and her characters always have some complex issue that pushes the romance in an interesting way. This was n different. There was a lot of sad and stressful moments -- I may have even cried a few times, but the romance and humor were well mixed in.Ahmare is on a mission to save her brother from Chalen the Conqueror...
