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…


I usually read the first book when I start a series. However, because I was in the mood for something paranormal, in a whim I just dropped by the thrift shop (booksale) and bought this book.I never thought that this book would be so good because its the third book of the black dagger brotherhood series.  It totally blew my mind. The drama, action, fantasy and romance were all combined perfectly which resulted to a one of a kind reading experience. I just kept devouring each page with gusto.

The hot scenes were really hot. The main character’s pain was perfectly portrayed. It somehow made the story more interesting. Also, the side characters added hype for the next book which is Lover Revealed (fourth book). Because of this book I definitely will read the first and second book. Maybe If I have the time, I would reread this story just to see if my thoughts on it would change or not. I highly recommend this series because of the quality of the author’s writing skills and that the whole black dagger brotherhood universe is just  too good to miss.
