Title: Lover Awakened
Author: J.R. Ward
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
The view of a book addict:
I just finished the third book of the series and so far this is my favourite. I was a fan of Zsadist from the first book and reading his story made me even love him more. This book is the most heartbreaking one.
So many struggle with their past and through it all I’m glad the ending was so beautiful. I had tears in my eyes a couple of times in this book.
The verdict of a book addict:
For me this is the best book so far, but there are more books in this series, so maybe I’ll say the same about the next book. I can’t wait to start reading about the brotherhood again!
