Hey Teak! I'm very grateful you are brave enough to venture onto the Warden's website and then are willing to share that info! That site isn't for the faint hearted! Thank you!

How funny, my sentiments exactly! I like discussing books (along with drooling) and I've never been able to find such a thread over there. The place also seems full of spoilers - coming from the Warden herself. I like to be surprised.

I really haven't been excited about the compendium because I keep picturing it as an encyclopedia. If there are background stories, outtakes etc...I'll be much more apt to purchase it.

How interesting that Butch's book won an award. Out of all the books, I would say the majority of the readers I've talked with (here and on the Dex) didn't care for Butch's book as much as the others. It took a second read for it to be more enjoyable. I wonder what the award was actually for? Thanks for the link Teak, I'll go take a look at it - it might contain the answer to my question.

I also think the site is a bit overwhelming...I'm chuckling here though AG, because I usually just pop onto the site to see if JR has posted, and try to get those spoilers! :lol: What can I say...love spoilers...

I thought I read one time that there will be a Z/Bella story; I'm hoping so anyway! Yes, having some outtakes and stories will make it much more wonderful, imo.

The JRW site is just so chaotic with information everywhere. It is not good for 'Type-A'rs' like me. I do dislike the constant spoilers on the site, it's impossible to avoid when you go there. However, it's how Ward does her stuff so...I guess it really isn't a spoiler if she is the one who's doing the leaking.

The compendium is supposed to have a map of the compound and some background stories is my understanding. I think it will be worth getting. But, I'm sure at least one of us will have it on it's release day and will post what (without spoiling) is in it.

I know what you all mean about the BDB forums. I only go on there when I have a burning question, knowing that it will be answered. Hahaha. I'm pretty psyched for the compendium. I'm going to read the MB series until it comes out and maybe possibly toss in another book called Accidentally Dead. I forget the authors name, but it looks really good. yes, more vampire fiction.

ps. John Michael is mine.

Hey you guys, I'm pretty new at this thread.
Guess I didn't notice the last time around because by then I hadn't read any of the BDB series. But now I have and I think they're just awesome. I got Dark Lover as a tip on amazon, bought it out of curiosity together with Lover Eternal , read them both through two nights - and ordered the other four the following day... I loved them!! So I'm all the more excited that I found a thread in forum about my favourite series concerning my second favourite series! :D
By the way, Teak, I'm almost sure that there will be more about Bella and Z. In my version of Lover Enshrined, there was a little excerpt from the compendium about the two after the birth. Probably I'm not telling you anything new, but I'm also excited at the thought of it.

Because it is. It should carry a warning label "M" for mature. Erotic and graphic...but really good!

Nima: you make a good point. These books should come with a warning label. Rated M for Mature, Macho, Manly Men, Mesmerizing, and Mmmm.

Oh good!! I think having some stories and background info. will make it so enjoyable!! I'm really looking forward to the Compendium. I can't keep half of the background straight! ( JR herself gets her own info. mixed up!) Maybe having it down on paper will clear some things up.

So I'm all the more excited that I found a thread in forum about my favourite series concerning my second favourite series!
If you like the Brothers, you might like the Breed too. (Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian ) More vamp warriors to read about! There's a thread in this forum about them also!

Yes, if you love BDB you may in fact love MB. I know I really enjoy it. Although there are those that feel they are too close and some like one over the other. I'm a equal opportunity vampire lover, they are all so yummy!

I hope in the compendium, in addition to the floor plans of the compound, but some artist renderings of the compound and Darius' house, possibly Rev and V's penthouse.
