The Black Dagger Brotherhood is an ongoing series of paranormal romance books by author J. R. Ward. The series focuses on a society (the "Black Dagger Brotherhood") of vampire warriors who live together and defend their race against Lessers, de-souled humans who threaten their kind. The first book in the series was published in 2005.
Ward's Fallen Angels series is in the same universe, and has some overlap in characters, but little overlap in storylines.
