The Tortured One...

Ah, Zsadist, the loneliest of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, the one who sets himself apart in all ways, who endured enforced enslavement and whose face is damaged beyond repair...could he find someone who not only will love him, but will bring out the best in his tortured soul? In the third installment of J.R. Ward's excellent Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Lover Awakened, the answers are found as the mysteries behind Z's past are also brought to light.

Zsadist keeps people at more than arm's length; he literally shoves them away. Unfortunately for beautiful vampire Bella, it is this very trait that attracts her, and Z tries to fight the feeling himself until Bella is abducted by the evil lesser O. Zsadist won't rest until Bella is rescued, and once she is, he finds himself drawn to her spiritually and physically. But of course there are complications, and Bella's been broken herself.

Ward has given her most solitary warrior a believable background and a means to recovery by establishing a storyline that not only finds him bonding with a female but realizing that he does in fact need his brothers. Woven within the story of Z and Bella are also side stories that must be solved with future installments, and I cannot wait to get back to this series. Ward has crafted a complex world and continually gives twists and turns to its characters. Fascinating reading, and highly recommended. This series continues to improve with each book.
