      Pretty much yes; Im very fond of the ways of torture described in Dante's poem, they were all so crude and terrible so much so that the Americans were not even interested in touching the manuscript ... saved for Longfellow that is.

      Guys may I ask you how is the english translation? Or get a link to download it? Cause I read it in ancient Italian and it's nothing you can read as a book, as every verse has at least three different notes about language, rhetorical meaning, historical info and such. Plus no one would tell you that but Dante was a psycho.

      True, it is very complex and its given much controversy when it was first translated. Longfellow worked with the manuscript for a long time because there were so many ways to translate it and he was so very intent in finding the accurate meaning.

      You can find the link on my first post @Anni

      So J.R. Ward just came out with another new book that I'll be starting to read soon. I'm not sure how many have read the The Black Dagger Brotherhood books, but it's a really good series. This is the twelfth book in the series.

      .... I've read a few of them <<

      Dont blame me, the books were left around the house and I cant help myself, I pretty much read anything I can get my hands on.

      I find the books interesting to a degree, they are not like the best story-plot stuff I've found but they are decent enough and the sex scenes are well... pretty raw.

      What's the new book about, do you know?

      Re: Author of the Month - March 2013

      It's about Quinn and Blay. Here's I'll quote the little information about the books. I just bought it so I haven't started reading it yet. Yeah the sex seens are always raw to say the least. Some books they just go oh we did it and that's the last of it.

      LOVER AT LAST
      by J.R. Ward
      March. 26, 2013

      Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

      Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.
      Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions... but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together... finally become one.

      Re: Author of the Month - March 2013

      It's hard to say, but through out all the books it kinda seems that way, then they split and everything. I mean he's with a Chosen right now. I wonder if they brought in with the other ones trying to kill all those in the Lessening Society. The ones that nearly killed Wrath the King.

      Re: Author of the Month - March 2013

      Im not sure if I read that one, I know I read about three or four books of these series... wasnt Quinn with that Chosen that helped those guys that wanted to kill the King?

      Re: Author of the Month - March 2013

      Yeah, pretty much. Wrath had gotten shot by those trying to kill him. You kinda knew it was going to happen, but the author likes to hold you on tenderhooks and then whamo.

      It's over 600 pages long which means its the longest of all the books.
