LETTO IN ITALIANO. EDIZIONE MONDOLIBRI

Come molte lettrice hanno confermato, questo nuovo romanzo di J.R.Ward costituisce una sorta di spartiacque che sposta il genere principale della saga da "paranormal romance puro" a "urban fantasy". Ci troviamo di fronte a un urban fantasy particolarmente romantico ma non è più un libro in cui l'azione va ad amalgamarsi alla storia d'amore centrale dei due personaggi. In questo caso ci troviamo di fronte ad una storia d'amore, si, nel caso specifico fra Phury e Cormia, che si innesta perfettamente in un quadro più ampio e complesso dei libri precedente.

In Lover Enshrined l'attenzione del lettore viene dirottata su diversi filoni oltre che sull'amore tormentato del guerriero tossicodipendente Phury, nonchè nuovo Primale della razza, e Cormia, sua Prima Sposa. Il volto del "male", che nei libri precedenti era apparso di sfuggita e che dirige da sempre i lasser, è finalmente stato svelato, si è mostrato al lettore in tutta la sua spietatezza e, soprattutto, adesso ha un "nome". Nel frattempo molto spazio lo ha anche John Matthew, reincarnazione di Darius nonchè fratello di Beth, la regina. John con tutti i suoi problemi, il suo passato privo di voce ma non di disperazione, si trova, per chissà qualche scherzo del destino, ad essere il nuovo nemico principale del "Male". E' lui che il Male vorrebbe uccidere con tutte le sue forze e sarà sempre lui, assieme a Blay e Qhuinn, a trovarsi spesso e volentieri faccia a faccia con i lasser...

**spoiler**

I didn't think I was going to be too into this book because Phury just seemed to have no personality in all the other books. Well turns out he has a personality...bat shit crazy ! lol The Wizard!! I just don't know what to say about it. I'm not liking the whole he's kicked out thing. Really bothers me. Although it was interesting to finally get to find out more about Phury, I preferred reading about Qhuinn. I do believe he's right up there with V for me !! I'm really looking forward to John Matthew as well. ( )

To save his fellow brotherhood member from the life of sexual enslavement, the hero volunteers to take his place as a breeder for the vampire race. A female chosen is sent down to mate with the tortured male in a bid to create a child. The hero, whom I’ve been waiting so long to find true happiness, is very much at a low time in his life. Once, he was the caretaker for his beyond tortured brother but now that Zsadist has found his mate, the hero is in a state of limbo. He’s lost his purpose. He’s addicted to drugs, feels the same love for his twins mate but is unable and unwilling to do anything about it and very much depressed. Though he’s kind towards the shy and timid female, he doesn’t think he’s worthy of her and in some aspects he’s right. He doesn’t treat her as well as he should and often finds himself saying the wrong things and making her cry. But with the heroine he finds a love that he knows he could never have found with his twins mate. He also finds a healing mend with his twin whom he had a very destructive relationship with. This wasn’t the best of the series but I still absolutely adored the angst and the drama and seeing such a deserving male find peace at last. ( )

Not my fav in the series, but still good, and so heart-wrenching in places. I could tell Phury was headed down a rough path from previous books, but damn... and excuse me, but how do you sign up for a job you aren't capable of doing? Ugh, he made me so mad at times! ( )
