This book was awesome and downright depressing, all at the same time. I knew Zsadist's story was going to be traumatic and sad but I didn't expect the truth of it at all. Then add all the stuff Bella went through before she was rescued and the book is pretty heavy on the downers. But Ward came through with some happy moments and the dialogue between the brothers is always at least slightly humorous to me. This was an amazing book but it is not for the lighthearted. Be warned that it does contain some sex scenes.
