3rd in the series - story of Zsadist and Bella. I really enjoyed this book as well. I can't wait for the next one. I am glad I gave J.R. Ward another chance after reading "Covet"- the Fallen Angels novel.

Zsadist is the wild card and has underneath it all a heart of gold. With Bella he has found a connection and her love help changes him forever and aids in escaping his haunting past. My favorite book in the series. Read the novella in the companion guide. It continues their story.

Zsadist and Bella

Jun 24, 2011

Great book and not surprisingly turning out to be a great series. I have to admit I was reluctant to believe that Zsadist's recovery from his tortured past was going to be believable considering that his years of torture were so intensely disturbing and went on for so...very...long. All the psychological issues were interesting and understandable and I couldn't see how he could change in so short of a time span. However the several catalysts were approapriately intense enough to cause the stir so of course for the reader rewarding when it finally happens.

FUNNY was the "hug" scene at the end in the Havers hospital. (Don't want to include spoilers).

This book is a strong 4 or 4.5 stars to me. Can't wait to read the next....

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion - until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society. Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist's thirst for vengeance against Bella's tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her.
