The Thief is the newest book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward. BDB is a group of vampire warriors who fight in the war to save their race against the lessening society and other dangers. BDB has a huge following and almost every fan of Paranormal books know of the series.
So, like every other BDB fan out there, I have impatiently been waiting for The Thief to be released! A year, we have been waiting for Assail and Sola’s story to be told and it is an utter disappointment for me. I’m not one to give spoilers so I will just say that I was upset with the side story of V and Jane, because it seems like in every story they’re involved with, they are having marital problems. I hope that Ward lays the issue to rest after this book because there are only so many times we can go through the same thing with the same couple, specially when so many people haven’t been satisfied with the couple to begin with.
Anyhoo, Assail and Sola’s story had the potential to be pretty awesome and I thought for sure it would be one of my fave couple story within BDB but again, disappointment. The ending of their story is very short, not many details and unsatisfactory. Too many questions remain about how their relationship will work. I feel like this book was a filler to get to the next story and no thought was really put into it. I don’t regret reading it because I will still read the next book but I think Ward needs to consider finding a perfect HEA for the series as a whole. The quality is declining and for such a long wait between books, plus the fact the books are $15 for kindle, $20 for Hardback, we should expect more from Ward! Let’s hope the next book will have more of everything lacking in The Thief!
New enemies rise and desire burns in the next thrilling novel of the #1 New York Times bestselling paranormal romance series the Black Dagger Brotherhood.
Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safecracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell, keeping her nose clean and her beloved grandmother safe. Her heart, though, is back up north, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, son of Assail, who never meant to fall in love—and certainly not with a human woman. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?
As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, and the Brotherhood needs Assail back on his feet, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn’t understand. And when Assail’s truth comes out, will she run from the horror . . . or follow her heart into the arms of the male who loves her more than life itself?
