I loved this short story about Z, Bella, and their baby girl. Z is such a tortured soul, but very lovable and heart wrenching... I love Bella; she loves Z inside and out. J.R. Ward continues to be on my auto-buy list. If you haven't read the Black Brotherhood series yet, especially the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, you are in for a treat. Memo to Ward: Can we get a short story about Wrath and Beth?

This was a great teaser. Zsadist has always been my favorite from the brothers. Z has been to hell and back. He faced his demons and was rewarded with Bella and Nalla waiting for him on the other side. He is so courageous and strong but at the same time can be tender and vulnerable. This novella delves into Nalla's birth, Bella's kidnapping, Z's past existence as a sex-slave and also Z, Bella and Nalla's life as a family. If you are a Z and Bella fan or a BDB fan this short story should not be missed! If this is your first exposure to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series I strongly suggest you read the series in order Dark Lover, Lover Eternal, Lover Awakened, Lover Revealed, Lover Unbound, Lover Enshrined, Lover Avenged and due out 4/2010 Lover Mine. I highly recommend the entire series to dark urban fantasy readers. IMO, the first three books in the series classify or closely classify as hybrids between dark paranormal romance and dark urban fantasy and the rest are dark urban fantasy peppered with a bit of romance. But whatever the classification, the series is phenomenal!

I also recommend:
Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 1)
Angels' Pawn: A Companion Novella to Angels- Blood
Pleasure Unbound (Demonica, Book 1)
Hotter Than Hell
Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 1)

I was looking for a book to download to my Kindle when I ran across this extra story on my favorite characters from this author - Zsadist and Bella. All I can say is that I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by just how much plot and dialogue we got in this continuation of one of my favorite couples.

The story covers the difficulties for Zsadist and Bella when they had their first child. I really like how it explores just the pocket of time when fatherhood was pretty new for Zsadist - and how the couple worked through it. It really just gives us 15 minutes more with our favorite JR Ward characters!

So if their story was your favorite book in the series, then I recommend that you read this story. You will enjoy it.

First things first, I am admittedly a sucker for the tortured soul redeemed by love. So if that sort of thing makes your stomach roll along with your eyes, well this book isn't for you.
This short story fills in the blanks between the end of Lover Awakened and the epilogue for the same book.
To see Zsadist come to terms with his fate, and make peace with his past through the love of his daughter and his wife is just amazingly sweet.
The scene in the doctor's office and Zsadist's conversation with Mary just brought tears to my eyes.
Since this was my favorite story of the BDB, it was nice to read a little more about this family.
If you loved Lover Awakened, you simply have to read this. It's a little shining gem of win.

If you are a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood and have not yet read this story, it is an absolute Must Read. The story was previously published in The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider's Guide, so if you don't do e-readers it's still available to be read. Or, if you do have the Insider's Guide you already have this story and don't need to repurchase.

As can be told by the product description it gives more detail about Zsadist and Bella--the main characters from the third novel Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 3)

If you have not yet read any of the BDB series, this is NOT the place to start, you should really start with Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 1). Following the way many paranormal romance series are published, each title in the series features a main character who happens to find his/her fated love. With a lot of angst and hot/detailed nookie involved to make it interesting. That said, this series is fabulous in that aspect--JR Ward does a great job with her world building and each story continues an overall plot arc. Each tale is also good at keeping tabs on favorites from other books. Because there is a lot of story arc going on it is pretty important to keep going in order.

This novella was not integral to the story told in Lover Awakened, but clearly more Z/B was needed. This is a wonderful, prolonged, epilog in a manner of speaking. Truly a wonderful read and I hope she does more like this to keep us up to date with the other characters.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (both this and the whole series!)

Ther is no way this was 496 pages....maybe a 120 if in paper. I would not have bought it if it hadn't said it was 496. I thought I was missing something by not reading this, but I hadn't missed anything. It is well written, but not necessary if you are following the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
