So far my favorite in the series has been the first (Wrath and Beth), but this is a close second (Zsadist and Bella). There are a couple things I love about the Black Dagger Brotherhood series that keep me reading it (even though I am NOT a fan of vampire lit). I love the extremely well written characters with their very unique strengths, weaknesses, and personalities. The vampire world Ward has created is so well thought out that you can tell she knows it inside and out. I love that even though there is a main couple in each book, you still see the advancement of other storylines and new twists shock you at every turn. And I love every character equally which rarely happens. Just so well done!
