Description:

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: 

This book started out with Zsadist whose having a hell of a time with Bella being kidnapped by the head of the lessers and everyone assuming she was dead which isn't the case.  Zsadist is the only one who believes she is still alive.

Bella is doing everything she can to stay alive getting word out that she is still alive and needs help.  With Z's help they rush to her side and rescue her unfortunately her road to recover is difficult.  The one thing Bella is sure of and that is she wants Z in her life.

This book was such an incredible journey.  They had ups and downs finding their way to each other and figuring out their way to each other.  I really enjoy going on the journey with Z and Bella and seeing where they wound up!  Such an  incredible adventure!
