Review: Finished Friday, November 10th, 2006. I couldn’t even begin to describe this series! I can’t tell you which book is better out of the three in the series! It seems like the further you get into it, the better it gets! Zsadist is totally different from his ‘brothers,’ and if/when you read this book, you’ll understand why. The internal struggles he lived with, how he overcame them, and with Bella at his side, had to be the best I’ve ever read, even if this book had nothing to do with vampires. Very powerful, makes your heart break, and fill with joy. The suspense is awesome, and the book grips you from start to finish, all characters, not just main, are all powerful. I can’t express enough how much I enjoyed this book!
