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 his only passion–until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society. Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, 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….”


Two words: Trigger.warning.
This book has some very detailed scenes of abuse.
Zsadists book is one of THE most pivotal books in the entire series. Here we get his and his twin brother , Phury, story. It`s as turbulent and heartbreaking.
With Ward`s razor sharp description , you will feel the pain , smell the scents, and feel the fear.
We get to go on this journey of Z being consumed of self hatred , to seeing Z discover true love and self acceptance, when he meets his salvation.
The sheer loyalty amongst the Brothers , is absolutely paramount for the resurrection of the soulless Brother Zsadist.
It really is the hardest book to read, but the salvation is worth every tear shed for Zsadist!

Verdict: 5 of 5 daggers up!
