There exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...

Where do I start…maybe with poof! Nah I kid, I kid. But those sentences with “poof my ass out of here” made me laugh. To be honest I was unsure whether to like the books or not. I heard a lot about those and I know this series is pretty popular so that’s what made me read it. I was curious what this buzz was all about. Well in the beginning – after I’ve read 2-3 books – I thought the plot was a bit simple and I don’t want to say “cheep” cuz I’ve grown into it but I did not understand why everybody was so hooked about the series. It has some fighting (of course the vampires/the Brotherhood have enemies) at some point but the main plot is about the love story with it’s difficulties, like getting close (cuz everyone of the Brotherhood is pretty much damaged or has been tortured in most horrible ways, as well some of them have been sexually abused) and the woman they fall in love with has to save them and give them peace. There where of course conversations and backgrounds you had to read about the lessers (the enemies) and I found myself skipping those parts cuz I was sooo not interested and in the end of the book I found out that I didn’t miss anything important. Ok the positive part is that I’ve really grown to like the “brothers”. Everyone has something special but I think their relationship is great and I would have loved just to hang out with them, they’re funny as hell. I trust everyone who read those books has their own favourite and for me it was Vishous followed by Zadist. At this point I have to add: the names! I mean c'mon…Zadist, Rhage, Wrath, Rhevenge etc.??!! But ok, I got used to it. At some point I though the end was always kind of obvious, but mostly I was happy with it so it’s all good.
I believe there is one more book out there that I haven’t read, numero siete. I try to get my hands on it anytime soon.
Btw I think it’s funny how every vampire (in every book!) denies the clichés about them! “No, garlic does no harm to us and no, we don’t sleep in coffins and no, we don’t particularly drink human blood” But at least almost everybody has its difficulties with the sunlight :D
