Its only a few days old and already this book has been chatted about just about everywhere. So I’m not going to bother going into a summary of the storyline.
Lets just say that I really enjoyed this book. I knew I would love Zsadist from the moment that he was first introduced in Wrath’s book. And he didn’t disappoint. I’m really glad that Ward stayed true to his character throughout most of the book. He did change into a better person in the end and I wouldn’t have wanted anything else.
There were SO many different parts to this book and we learned a wicked amount of stuff about the other characters. Vishous, Butch, especially Phury and Revhenge. I am looking forward to all of their books. I only hope they stay as good as the previous.
I haven’t read through everyone else’s posts yet, going to that this afternoon, but is there anyone else who thinks that Z is creepily similar to Kenyon’s Zarek? Really similar? And what other hero did we all just read about who was a sex slave of sorts, and then he couldn’t bear for anyone to touch him now? I could swear I just read about that same idea.
There were tons of emotions in this one book. I think I laughed the most in this one as I did with them all but yet it was darker than the first two. And it was the saddest and most heartwrenching. There were times I really wanted to knock Z in the head, he got to be a bit too stubborn.
But there is absolutely nothing better than the way this story ended — with Z trying to better himself so that he could then go to Bella and see her. Not necessarily be with her if he couldn’t but just to be in her precense. (sp?) And him so worried that he had to hurry before she found another male.
On a side note, at times I feel Ward uses just a bit too much slang. Leathers, shitkickers, “What doing?” and the ‘my brother’ said over and over got to me as well. What the hell is red smoke?
I almost cried in the scene with Phury and Z when they are both in the hospital in the end. Z trying to convince Phury to just let him go. And when he said “I think I’m going to hug you know.”!!! Ohhhhh!!
I just wanted to add something, I was reading CindyL‘s review of this book and something she wrote really jumped out at me. This statement is so true … and says so much about Zsadist.
Sure, it was Bella that reached out to him and just refused to take no for an answer but sometimes no was the answer and Z is the only hero I know who meant it.
And Oh my jesus did he ever mean it at times. But that made it all the much better in the end.
There are so many aspects to this book and secondary storylines that I can’t even begin to touch on them all.
