Book Review: Prisoner Of Night (Black Dagger Brotherhood #16.5) By J. R. Ward
Prisoner of Night - J.R. Ward


This is what I wish every Black Dagger Brotherhood novel would be like! It's one condensed complete adventure/story prominently featuring one couple and setting up a possible next book in the last chapter or two. The problem I have with her intertwined storylines is because it's rare that I want to read both of them. It's happened and when it does it does amazing things for the story/series/characters but when it doesn't I get to do a lot of skimming (which I don't necessarily love).


I loved Ahmare's spunk. She does what has to be done to save her family and if that means going to the end of the time and back with a stranger then that's what she's going to do. Though I'm not a fan of insta-love, but it worked for this novel and its short timespan.


My heart broke for Duran. He's never had much of a "normal" life and it's been even worse in the past 2 decades (being a prisoner and all). He had his ticks but there was a sweet and caring side to him that never really got a chance to flourish before now.


This novel had me so deep in its clutches that I ended up reading until the wee hours of the morning. Overall this was a captivating story with a briskly paced narration that worked in its favor.


My Favorite Quotes:


"We don't get to choose all our destinations [...]."


"Some things were inevitable. Some leaps were taken before you were aware of going over the edge. Some songs called you to magically."


"Sometimes the worst part about trauma was not going through it. It was the aftermath, when you were free."

Prisoner of Night by J.R. Ward $1.99
Prisoner of Night - J.R. Ward

When Ahmare’s brother is abducted, there is nothing she won’t do to get him back safely. She is unprepared, however, for the lengths she will have to go to save his life. Paired with a dangerous but enticing prisoner, she embarks on an odyssey into another world.

Duran, betrayed by his father, imprisoned in a dungeon for decades, has survived only because of his thirst for vengeance. He has been biding his time to escape and is shocked to find an unlikely and temporary freedom in the form of a determined young female.

Battling against deadly forces and facing unforeseen peril, the pair are in a race to save Ahmare’s brother. As time runs out, and the unthinkable looms, even true love may not be enough to carry them through.

Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 16.5

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the series

The Characters:

Female Shadow, Ahmare’s brother

The Story:

While the action and sexiness of this book was sufficient and I love the idea of learning about the citizens of Caldwell outside of the brothers I found myself drifting off and not caring several times. Maybe I just didn’t connect with them that well. I can’t even remember the names of the supporting characters or the bad guy. He was an excellent villain though. Really evil.

The Random Thoughts:

The Score Card:


3.5 Stars

I have no idea why I never did a May one. I guess I'm just lazy. I read quite a bit these past two months-at least a lot for me, Though I know I'm behind because I want to read 75 books this year. Graphic novels and manga count right? I read three these past two months.


The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski

It was a good sequel, but I definitely enjoyed the first book more.

I really liked the politics in this one, but I felt the build up was dragged for the ending sequence that was only like five pages. Also, not enough interaction between Arin and Kestrel. Though I really did like their heart breaking romance though. Rip my heart out it's okay. That cliff hanger though. UGH.


 Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

I loved this book so much. I loved it so much I actually made a post about it. i still want a story from Daniel's perspective. Just saying. 


Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Everyone seems to love this and I am not part of that group. I wasn't impressed by this. Nothing meshed well and it was all over the place. I can't explain it but it was also very open...(?) It kind of just jumped right into the story and went from one thing to the next. I liked it enough to buy the sequel though. Interesting plot but meh writing. (Though I do love her Hex Hall series.)


Scandal by Sarah Ockler

The message of this book is very important. Cyber bullying is horrible and should never be done. I hated the bullying. I hated the fact that no one helped the main character. This poor girl would walk through the hallways of her school and get spat on. Why did no one stop this? Bullying is a messed up thing and I hate hearing about it. 

The one thing I didn't like was the main character's romance thing with the guy. There were things that were written about them that happened that were so vague they made no sense. 

Important message but everything else was meh. 


Lux Beginnings and Consequences by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I read Obsidian, Onyx, and Opal (technically I read Obsidian in May in finished in June and the same thing happened with Opal and finished July first oh well.) I like the story. It's enjoyable and has it's moments. I like Katy, I don't like Daemon. He was fine throughout the first book but half way in Onyx and a majority of Opal he was so annoying. He's so inconsistent. Up and down up and down. One minute he hates her the next he's in love. I was also so done with the romance in Opal. I want plot development I don't care about you two kissing. 


Angelfall and World After by Susan Ee

Literally the best angel books I've read so far. Granted I was annoyed that it just jumped to six weeks later. I want to know what happened but that's the whole point of the story. The angels have invaded and no one knows why. I love the relationship between Penryn and her sister and her relationship with Raffe. And of course the actual story and the crap that happens to her. But mostly Penryn. One of the best female leads I have ever read. (I heard the third book is a disappointment and I really hope when I read it I won't think it is.)


To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

I guess it was a cute contemporary? I don't really like contemporary nor did I like the instalove.


Salt and Stone by Victoria Scott

This sequel was so good! The character development was great with Tella, That cliffhanger though. When's the last book coming out?



I also read Deadly Class vol.1 and the manga Blackbird vol.1 and I liked the story to both of them but to me they were all over the place. Literally jumped from one thing to the next. 


Right now I'm in a reading slump. I have so many books on my tbr that need to be read but I don't wanna read any of them.

Characters I Want to Drown | T5W
Shadow and Bone - Leigh Bardugo
Angelfall - Susan Ee
Prisoner of Night and Fog - Anne Blankman
Gabriel's Inferno - Sylvain Reynard
White Hot Kiss - Jennifer L. Armentrout

 I mean...there are a lot of characters I can't stand/get frustrated and angry with but I wouldn't necessarily want to drown. Just slap a lil bit of sense into them. Mostly because for some reason I can't think of any character I actually hate. I guess I should have done the frustrating characters t5w. Oh well. Three of the characters I chose I would be glad to drown. Just saying.


If you didn't know T5W was created by gingerreadslainey and every Wednesday there's a topic in which we choose our top 5 to it. If you want to join, check out the discussion page!



1) Mal from The Grisha Trilogy.

I honestly can't remember much about him because I haven't read the last book and I just didn't like him. I know I probably should have but I'm a terrible person who much preferred The Darkling. I wouldn't mind if a book took an evil route you know? I had the same thought with the Halo books by Alexandra Adornetto. I never finished it because I grew out of of it and I liked Jake. She should have chosen the demon. Anyway, I didn't like Mal. I thought he was annoying and not a very good friend to Alina. 


2) Uriel from the Penryn End of Days trilogy 

Because he's the one who did the thing to Raffe. I haven't read the last book yet but I hope he dies. Just saying.


3) Reinhard from Prisoner of Night and Fog

He was such a shit brother! I hated him so much. 


4) Simon from Gabriel's Inferno 

(there are actual multiple characters in this I would love to drown) 

I won't say much because spoilers but this man. Oh my god this man and what he did to Julia. That's all I'm saying, 


5) Layla from the Dark Elements trilogy 

This girl! She's the main character yet she's so damn useless throughout the majority of the book and her damn indecisiveness. How you gonna be in love with someone and all o a sudden fall in love so quick with some guy you just met. I can forgive her if she chooses Zayne. 



I know there are more characters in which I'd like to stick their heads in a toilet, but I'm just going to leave it with them.
