Review: Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward

  Ever since the death of his shellan, Tohrment has been unrecognizable from the vampire leader he once was. Physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair, he has been brought back to the Brotherhood by a self-serving fallen angel. Now fighting once again with ruthless vengeance, he is unprepared to face a new kind of tragedy.

When Tohr begins to see his beloved in his dreams–trapped in a cold, isolated netherworld far from the peace and tranquility of the Fade–he turns to the angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. But because Lassiter tells him he must learn to love another to free his former mate, Tohr know they are all doomed…

Except then a female with a shadowed history begins to get through to him. Against the backdrop of the raging war with the lessers, and with a new clan of vampires vying for the Blind King’s throne, Tohr struggles between the buried past and a very hot, passion-filled future… but can his heart let go and set all of them free?

All of that was taken away from him in a split second when a lesser shot and killed Wellsie and their unborn child. Tohrment disappeared for almost a year before Lassiter, a fallen angel, brought him back to the Brotherhood. How does a bonded male come back from such a devastating loss? Hints to come after the jump…
