The Black God

Jonny Rodriquez ascended to his position as the Black God mere days after learning he was a Natural, a human with supernatural abilities. He gave up all thoughts of a normal life, as well as his humanity, to lead the ongoing struggle between the vampires he commands and the Guardians – the immortals charged with protecting humans.

Six grueling years later, he’s managed to reconcile who he is and what he must do to maintain order and control. However, the old guard in his vamp army resents the changes he’s made as part of a truce with the White God. Jonny’s army splinters in two, and the old guard tries to rekindle the war between vamps and Guardians. Jonny has little time to crush the rebellion before any chance at coexistence with humanity is gone.

When a vigilante disables his ability to track the rogue vamps, he’s forced to confront a face from his past, one he’s never truly forgotten. His first love, Ashley, is everything he doesn’t need in his life. She’s reckless, stubborn, and strong, a Natural whose warrior abilities are unmatched. Worse, she’s the adopted daughter of Xander, the Original Vamp, who Jonny needs on his side to keep the Guardians from attacking until he has his house in order.

With civil war looming, a furious White God at his doorstep and dwindling allies, Jonny can’t humor his lingering feelings for Ashley and walks away – or tries to. When Ashley’s life falls into Jonny’s hands, he’s forced to realize that sometimes, love runs deeper than blood.

Lizzy Ford is one of my favorite authors, and The Black God is now one of my favorite books. I love catching up with the previous characters, and being able to connect the story lines for Jonny and Ashley. Solid and well written, as always.

I think he took to long to interact as a leader plus I don't think she should have had her brother get hurt so bad.

Was okay. I think he took to long to interact as a leader plus I don't think she should have had her brother get hurt so bad.

Sweet addition and wonderful inside view on a kid who found himself forced into a bad guy role. I love how Lizzy Ford writes this character to show his true self and desire to be a good bad guy. A sweet addition to the series and I loved seeing THE BLACK GOD, find love and companionship after all!

It's not Damian, but I was still waiting to read this!

After reading Xander, I'd been waiting for this book, and it may just be me cause I'm a little bias, but I had a hard time becoming invested in it. Let's get something straight...I love the series. My struggle was rooting for Jonny knowing that I am rooting for the Black God. It just seems so wrong in the grand scheme of things. I mean, who roots for the vamps, the bad guys, the ones killing humans? However, Jonny is definitely the lesser evil over another vamp taking over, and technically, not a bad guy by choice. Once I wrapped my head around the fact that I wasn't actually cheering for the vamps over the Guardians, I got more into the book. And though I love Damian, he was kinda a d!ck at one point and I empathized with Jonny.And poor Jonny. The youngest Black God; not given much of a choice in ascending to that position when his sister was kidnapped and nearly killed by the last Black God, and Jonny had to kill him to save her. Before he could even get his arms wrapped around the fact that he now needs to lead a group of vamps, he partners with the other Gods to eliminate a common enemy, the Others. This war in turn leads to the decimation of a majority of his vamps. And then the latest hit? The remaining group splinters when Jonny decrees that a truce with the White God can be had if his people follow his new protocol that allows vamps to feed, but refrain from taking a human life. Not liking Jonny's direction, the old guard decide to follow someone who may just have a chance at taking Jonny's place as the Black God. To add to the complications, Jonny's ex is determined to seek her own retribution for the wrongs bestowed on her by Jonny. Ashley is no longer the quiet girl he once knew. Trained to be a fierce warrior by Xander himself, she takes it upon herself to defend humans by attacking the vamps preying on them. If that means hurting Jonny too? Bonus! Before you know it, their paths will cross again, and this time, neither will be able to walk away unscathed.Their was definitely a fine line between empathizing with Jonny, and wanted to smack him on the back of the head too. His methods, although in keeping with being the Black God, kept me from fully caring for him like the other Gods. I like a bad boy, just not one that kills innocent people. Even if it is to make a point. All in all, another good book by Lizzy Ford. If you like paranormal books, I definitely recommend this series. It was one of my first series read by this author and since then, I've read them all.

Damiian Eternal, a great sequence to the series.

Love it!

I love the book! I'm so pleased with how the whole series ended with the Black God. The War of Gods Series is one of the best series I've read. And this book is a fitting ending to it!

By BJS (5.0 out of 5 stars) on August 24, 2015
The Black God has Johnny coming into his power as the Black God, but not without opposition from some of the vampires who view him as week and unable to run things as they would wish. The loyal vampires must battle and kill the rogues if Johnny's view of a new vampire society is to come to pass. There are trials along the way, especially when Johnny finds his lifemate is the step-daughter of Xander, the Original Vampire.I am looking forward to the next installment in the Damien Eternal saga.

By Victoria Cameron (5.0 out of 5 stars) on August 7, 2015
Since the new Black God came onto the scene, I've been fascinated by what he's really thinking, and wondering if he completely lost himself to the dark. It's great to see inside his head and why he does certain things. Bringing him back to Ashley was thrilling. Their story is up there with the rest of the couples in greatness, and the end to the overarching issue feels complete. The details of each person also adds to the story. I loved the growth of them as a couple and as individuals. Another great read from Ford!
