Review & Giveaway: The Jackal by J. R. Ward
The Jackal has been in the camp for so long he cannot recall anything of the freedom he once knew. Trapped by circumstances out of his control, he helps Nyx because he cannot help himself. After she discovers what happened to her sister, getting her back out becomes a deadly mission for them both.
United by a passion they can’t deny, they work together on an escape plan for Nyx—even though their destiny is to be forever apart. And as the Black Dagger Brotherhood is called upon for help, and Rhage discovers he has a half-brother who’s falsely imprisoned, a devious warden plots the deaths of them all…even the Brothers.
For some reason, I get behind on Ward's books then read them out of order. Something that I hate doing but it will sound good and I want to read it so...
So when I saw that this one started up a new offshoot of her series I thought I'd give it a try. Boy was I glad that I did. I really enjoy The Jackal and loved him. He's a new character that's been introduced to us but he has ties with the brothers. I'm not going to share with who read it for yourself and find out.
Not only do we have new characters to love with also got flashbacks to some of those we already love past. At times the plot gets a bit busy but that's how Ward rolls. Once or twice I thought, what! but then as I read on I got it.
I also really enjoy Nyx and her quest to free her sister. I think you'll really enjoy her as a character. Both of them are perfect together even though at times you have to wonder if they'd work. In the end, they do and I hope we see more of them.
The one thing I really love about Ward is her ability to paint a picture in her writing. You feel like you are there with them every step of the way. It really makes for a great story. I can't wait for the next book in her Black Dagger Brotherhood: Prison Camp series. Any of you read her? Your thoughts on her books?
