Review: Dark Lover

Written by Seregil of Rhiminee - 1.0

In my opinion J. R. Ward's Dark Lover is one of the worst vampire books I've ever read (and it's definitely the worst book I've read this year). I usually like vampire books, but I didn't like this book at all. Although this book can be called horror fantasy, it's much closer to paranormal romance than genuine horror fantasy, which is a bad thing. This kind of romantic horror fantasy may appeal to some readers, but I don't like it (if somebody wants to read good horror fantasy, I can recommend Anne Rice's first vampire books - they're excellent books). In my opinion Dark Lover is a good example of how not to write horror fantasy books. The writing was below average, the character development was horrible, the plot was almost non-existent etc... I could write several lines of text about the badness and low quality of this book, but I won't do so. I simply say that do yourself a favour and don't read this book.
