Pick of the Week

My pick of the week is really only my pick because of the name-brand of J.R. Ward, if I am being completely honest. For some reason, as much as I usually look forward to most things Black Dagger related, Blood Truth is a bit of a outlier for me. I never thought about this book, I have read the blurb a couple of times and have no clue who either of the main characters are, and I didn’t even realize it was coming out today until I got my shipping notice from Amazon. Maybe I got hit in the head or something, but I just can’t seem to get into the groove for this release. That will probably change as soon as I start reading…or I hope so. Not the most glowing recommendation for pick of the week, is it?

blood truthSynopsis…

As a trainee in the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s program, Boone has triumphed as a soldier and now fights side by side with the Brothers. Following his sire’s unexpected death, he is taken off rotation against his protests—and he finds himself working with Butch O’Neal, former homicide cop, to catch a serial killer: Someone is targeting females of the species at a live action role play club. When the Brotherhood is called in to help, Boone insists on being a part of the effort—and the last thing he expects is to meet an enticing, mysterious female…who changes his life forever.

Ever since her sister was murdered at the club, Helaine has been committed to finding the killer, no matter the danger she faces. When she crosses paths with Boone, she doesn’t know whether to trust him or not—and then she has no choice. As she herself becomes a target, and someone close to the Brotherhood is identified as the prime suspect, the two must work to together to solve the mystery…before it’s too late. Will a madman come between the lovers or will true love and goodness triumph over a very mortal evil?

So, have you ever completely spazzed on a book like I have for Blood Truth? I think, as of right now, I might just hold off reading this one until I manage a big BDB/BDL series re-read, because at this point I hardly know what is going on anymore. Sigh. The joys of getting old, I guess…and reading way, way too many books.

    Wasn’t Boone the trainee that went to the King and told the Brotherhood about the party at the end of Savior? Who father ended up being killed by one of the shadows?

    I will probably read it because I have read all of the BDB series but not right now. It’s been awhile since I read the series and I probably should do a re-read. I get her books at the library now and have quite buying them. I am starting to travel more and my money is going towards that these days.

      This is my least Favourite of JR Ward’s books. I really liked Boone and Helaine but… There was just something missing. It had so much potential but just felt forced and flat. I preferred the Syn and Balthazar moments but there were few – hopefully The Sinner will be better. I’ll be interested to see what other people’s thoughts are, at the moment the FB group is just buzzing cause its out.

    I loved the first 5 books in the series and hated 6 ( I think … the one with the harem story) and read a couple after that. Now for the idiot part of this story, I keep picking up the books and not reading them because she was a favorite author and I think to myself I will try reading them again.
    So I am gonna try real hard to just stop and call it good. She is still a good writer.. it is I who have changed in what I like to read now.
