The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider's Guide

This is a must have compendium for the fans of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. It is broken down into parts.
The first is an original novella featuring Zsadist and Bella, which was wonderful! The story is a very intimate look at their relationship after the birth of their daughter, Nalla. I couldn’t make myself stop reading it. There are the Brotherhood Dossiers, which has insider information on the Brothers and their books. The interesting thing about it is Ms. Ward gives you details about the writing process with each book. Next is writing tips and advice as well as the original proposal that the author submitted for the Brotherhood. We also get deleted scenes, which was fabulous! The Kicks and Giggles section is excerpts from all the books that made J.R. Ward laugh out loud as she was writing, which was very entertaining. One of the best parts that Ms. Ward should be applauded for including is the appearances of the Brothers on her message boards as well as the Slices of Life that she has posted there. She has a time line of her world, an example of the Old Language, as well as questions that readers sent in; over three thousand were submitted. A tough part to read for any fan is In Memoriam, the last interview she did with Tohr and Wellsie. I still have not been able to read that part as the death of Wellsie and their unborn child had a large impact on me. The icing on the cake is a preview of the new book, Lover Avenged, the much-awaited story of Rehvenge. Since it won’t be out until May, I am not touching the preview as it would drive me nuts until I had the book in my hot little hand.
This was a wonderful book that J.R. Ward has given to her fans, a perfect tide-me-over until the new book is out. Thank you Ms. Ward.
