Black Dagger Legacy Series Guide

Posted January 10, 2018 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Reading on the Dark Side, Under the Covers / 16 Comments

The Black Dagger Brotherhood, warriors who protect the secret society of vampires from the evil lessers that are intent on destroying them have realised they need help with the war. So, they have broken tradition and are setting up a programme for vampires, whether they be a commoner, a high ranking vampire, male or female to join a training programme to be a soldier in the war against the Lessening Society. It will be gruelling, the few who past the initial test will be put through mental and physical stress that help them become the best soldiers as well as facing their inner demons…and maybe finding love.

We all love the Black Dagger Brotherhood (BDB) by J.R. Ward and now we have the spin off series Black Dagger Legacy (BDL) series to also worship and adore. As BDL is a spin off, separate series it doesn’t require you to have read BDB, but and this is a Kardashian sized BUTT, fully understanding the background of the secondary love stories and the characters, such as the teachers in the programme you require reading the BDB series. Which, is no hardship!
