About the Book

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 review:

In this third book I totally fell in love. Zsadist was that impressive mystic guy from the previous books, who quickly became my favorite and I was tempted to understand what happens with him and Bella. I remembered that she disappeared in the end of the previous book and she just had to be alive.

Just like in the first 2 books from BDB series, the sex is one of the main themes in here too, but not much. Zsadist is hurt by it and don’t like it. The theme of his past, being a blood slave is probably the most interesting of all in the book.

Mr. O from the Lessening Society was my most hated character and I still don’t like the fact that he may be able to do something more in the story, coming with the next books from the saga.

Being honest, I’d read the book for 2 days only and can say that this is a book, which don’t let you think about anything else and makes you to continue to read page after page until the end.
