Summary:



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…


My Thoughts:


If you are new to this series, then I guess we've all been waiting to read Szadist's story. Don't make me disappointed here and tell me you didn't want to know the story behind his scars and really bad personality! So, are you ready for this? If you have read Lover Eternal you would have already guessed who Szadsist need an awful lot of time to come across their feelings and acknowledge them. Therefore, get ready for more than 300 pages of cat and mouse game between Bella and Szadist! Oh, and add Phury, Szadist's twin into the mix and you have a serious problem. How come? Well, in our book twins get a crush on the same girl and both of them try t show h her in another's arms. But don't worry about that; Bella our twin's love interest has put her mind only on one of the brothers, and trust me you'll absolutely love how she's making Szadist act!

This story has truly been my favourite. I really enjoyed seeing Szadist becoming a better person and oh, that prologue took my heart away! I understand both Szadist and Bella and their need to distance and be close to the other. For the time being the greatest character development was in Szadist and I really loved that. Even the whole tough-guy-cries scheme made much more sense here than in the previous book. And if I read again the same scenario at the end. I'm going to be utterly pissed. I also loved how this book showed more of Lesser's feelings through Mr. O. He is an anomaly and no matter how much you despise him, sometimes even he, makes sense in that twisted kind of way.

I will be taking a break from reading this series, but if you are up for it just continue, but don't forget to leave your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. don't miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
