Lover Awakened (The Black Dagger Brotherhood #3) J.R. Ward
Even within the vampire brotherhood, Zsadist is feared. Still bearing the scars from a tortured past, he is renowned for his unquenchable fury. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion-until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.
Review: I don't think you can really go wrong with this group of vampires. I'm half way through the series (which I will be taking a tiny break from) and I could not be happier. I think that this story has a little bit of a "lesson" in it too....everybody has their "scars" and nobody is unloveable. I really liked how the author let the readers in on Zsadist's tortured past...It really helps and makes Zsadist seem a little more "human."
What I REALLY think:
Beginning: Very fast paced....I started it last Friday morning and before I knew it I had read over 100 pages before I had to get some sleep.
Middle: Intense. Zsadist goes through a whole lot of "I do but I don't" phases with Bella because of his past. Then throw in the lessers and you get get a whol bunch of AWESOME!
End: Oh how the mighty have fallen.
