Lover Enshrined is the sixth book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R.Ward and concentrates on the story of Phury and Cormia, but also expands the reader’s knowledge of Rehvenge, Lash, Blay, Qhuinn, John Matthew and the Omega. Having agreed to be the Primale, Phury takes Cormia from the all-white Sanctuary to the Brotherhood’s mansion. Once there, he procrastinates on doing his duty with Cormia, mostly from a sense of unworthiness of the task. Added to this, his torture of lessers and his drug addiction continue. Elsewhere, the Omega has a new secret weapon to unleash on the Vampires, with devastating results for the glymera; Bella is still pregnant; Qhuinn loses control in a violent manner and Wrath solves the resultant problem in a very creative way; Blay admits his feelings for a certain vampire; John Matthew confronts his fears and makes an impression on a female; the actions of Rehv’s blackmailer threaten his health; Phury and Z resolve some issues and, after five months of whereabouts unknown, Tohr is found. While Phury is not an easy-to-like hero (I kept wishing he’d get over his issues, shut that irritating wizard up and get on with it), I liked how Cormia’s character developed. Ward keeps the interest by adding new concepts: a tangible ghost in the last book, a fallen angel in this one, plus the interesting sympath features. Phury’s ultimate relationship with the Chosen was a cute twist. I look forward to Lover Avenged. Warning: this series may be habit-forming.
