The third book in the series tells the story of the vampire Zsadist, a former blood slave with a violent past. When he meets Bella, Zsadist thinks her human love could be his path to salvation. Then Bella is kidnapped, and Zsadist will stop at nothing to get her back.
Listen to another Black Dagger Brotherhood chiller.

"This genre-bending third novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series...is a perfect fit for those who like fast-paced urban fantasy rich in both fury and poignancy." (Booklist)
I love this entire series. Each book sucks you in more and more. I think Lover Awakened is my favorite. It's a beautiful story about emotional growth and learning how to overcome abuse.
My only complaint is about the narrator. Frangione is so monotone and lifeless and it really takes away from the books. I can't tell any difference between characters unless I'm listening to context clues. He makes everyone sound bored no matter the scenario the characters are in. Very unfortunate.
LOVE English Bulldogs, Nelson Demille, Patricia Cornwell and just reading in general!
Yes, because it was a good story and fun to read.
V is my favorite, but Z is a close second. I like his back story and his personality and this book wrote him very well. You could feel his anguish and sincerely wanted everything to turn out good for him.
I didn't have just one in this book. It was really all good. While the lessor's story is relevant, I tend to just skim over their chapters because it's not nearly as interesting as what's going on with the boys!
hmmm, not sure, but I'd love it if there was a mini-series of these, each episode dealing with one of the boys' stories. That's be very cool.
WOW!! This story was amazing. I have always had a sneaking love for the bad guy so Z was already on my radar. But now, that brother is my favorite. It was truly heartbreaking to find out all the injustice he endured & how it warped his view of sex & his own body. It also shows that no matter what you go through, when the right motivation comes along for you to change, & you want to change, you will. Sometimes a person has to go through something to be ready to help someone else get through it later. Z did not want to help Bella on some levels, but he was the only one that could truly understand what she had gone through. By helping her, he freed himself. Another reviewer said he was disappointed by the ending, but I loved it! I mean the biggest & baddest next to Wrath doing a face plant, ya gotta love it!!
You get to see a major transformation in one of the darkest characters. You get to understand the darkness, where it came from and how she pushed him to deal with it.
The apples and ***spoiler alert*** the reconnect scene at the end. I dropped a few tears. It was so sweet and you see the promise of the relationship, how far he has come and to what lengths he is willing to go.
He is such a great narrator that you can't just choose one. He gives them all their own personality. If there was another narrator reading this book, I do not think the books or the connection with the books would be the same.
Yes! You get caught up in the turbulence of the story and your emotions get involved. You want to actually be part of the story.
I have read this series twice and this book 3 times. If you get a chance, go to Amazon.com and get their novella. It gives more insight into their relationship and the relationship ***spoiler alert*** with their baby.
Audible addict... need i say more
I have been waiting for this story since z was introduced as a character in the main story. Soooo worth the wait. even if the series ended here I would be happy. but thank "the virgin" it's not. on to book 4.
Loving my life and hanging out with my four grandchildren!
This was book three of a thirteen book series, so far, agoodnd each and every one has been totally enjoyable! This book is centered on the Blackdagger member Zsadist and his shellen Bella. The book gives you all the back story on Z and shows you why he is such a tortured soul. By the end of the book you will be in love with these characters and ready for the next book in the series. As always Jim Frangione does a wonderful job! He is perfect in his performance! This series should not be missed!
