J.R. Ward - Lover enshrined

Phury has searched for years, to find his twin brother Zsadist, who was kidnapped as an enfant. Both brothers are Black Dagger Warriors, an elite of men who protect the rest of the human and vampire race from their enemies. Now his brother has found happiness with Bella and a baby on the way, but Phury still suffers from guilt and pain that his twin suffered from. To control the pain, he becomes addicted to the Red Smoke, a drug that allows him to escape his emotional pain. But soon enough the addiction take control of his life and he is becoming a danger to the Brotherhood. The only thing to do is to put the Brotherhood behind him and take full responsibly to become the Primale of the Chosen, the father of the next generation of warriors.

Cormia is one of the Chose and the Primal first mate; hopefully she will bear the first of the next generation of warriors. Although she is his first mate, every other Chosen will also trying to bear the Primale’s children. After spending time with Phury and falls in love with him, Cormia is not sure if she is willing to share him with the other females, it would only break her heart. She’d rather give him up and the world she grown to love, than to bear the heartache of sharing Phury.

Phury is becoming more and more addicted and soon it will not be enough. He’s falling in love with Cormia, but would probably loose her if he cannot overcome his addiction. But can he also take other Chosen to his bed, or can he come up with a solution to have Cormia, his warrior life and the next generation of warriors.

Quote Phury – Zsadist:
He shook his head again.” I don’t think I’m wrong to ask for some acknowledgment. I’ve been invisible in this family all my live.” There was a stretch of silence. Then Z spat “For fuck’s sake, get off the cross. Someone else needs the wood.”

This is the sixth book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and I believe it is a great one. In Vishous’s story you could taste the new direction J.R. Ward was going and she continued this in Phury’s book. Not a normal romance story anymore, but a book with two or three storylines. Beside the storyline about Phury and Cormia, we find Rhevenge and his secret life and of course John, Qhuinn and Blay are definitely getting their own place in the book.

The relationship between Phury and Cormia starts slow, but when Phury finally realize she is the one for him and only she. He will finds a way to have her and come with a plan to secure the next generation of warriors with the Chosen. The whole thing about his addiction was good; we all know he was addicted and it wasn’t a surprise to find out how deep in was in this stuff.

The other great thing in the book was the relationship between Zsadist and Phury, of course Zsadist is himself, all hard and straight to the point, but that is just the way we love him. And Phury needs that to see what he’s doing with his life and finally takes matters in his own hands.

And of course the great bond between John, Blay and Qhuinn. The way those three get along, is fabulous to read about. Just the way they defend each other is just fabulous, you could say they are brothers for live and I really like that. They are part of the warriors now.

I truly can say I enjoyed the story and I cannot wait to read more about Rhevenge and his secret life.
