Mini-reviews of two awesome books: "Lover At Last" And "The Darkest Minds"

Due to time constraints and piling up review copies, I thought I would post some reviews short.  Because these are the books, which already has many reviews for you to choose from in Goodreads and Amazon.


Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood #11
Author: J.R. Ward
Publisher: NAL Hardcover
Release Date: March 26th 2013
Source: Own
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions... but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together... finally become one.


At recent times, BDB series has lost its shine to me.  I didn't even try to read BDB #9 and #10.  And then I want to see how Qhuinn and Blay ends up and had gone and bought it.  Well, I am so happy that I am not disappointed and I remembered how all this BDB craze started.  It's all the love for and between the boys that made me stick on to them so much.

This installment is just so good and it has sub-plots that I don't understand (well, I skipped two books, what do I expect..) in the beginning.  But towards the middle, I am so into the story and was so looking forward to the story of the BDB boys than the other new teams.

Another must-read from Ms.Ward!

Next one is about Wrath..and I am not going to miss it for the world.


Series: The Darkest Minds #1
Author: Alexandra Bracken
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Release Date: December 18th 2012
Source: Own
Genre: Dystopia

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.


If you search for reviews about this book, almost all the reviews will contains words like "dark" and "beautiful".  And this book is exactly those things and more!

Although this book was highly hyped about, I started this book with less expectations.  Oh my god, this book is awe-tastic.  This is how a book must be written.  It did perfect justice to its genre.  I kept moving through the pages fast and steady.  The characters and plot are just great.  I liked everything about the book.

Though I was expecting this ending, it is still heartbreaking..

MUST READ and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  But, if you want some light read or fun book, please don't pick this up.

Now to you awesome readers, I know many of you would have already read this.  If so, how do you feel about them?  And if you haven't read, do you wish to pick them up?
