Overview

A vampire and a scientist’s fates are passionately entwined in a race against time in this thrilling romance in the #1 New York Times bestselling “utterly absorbing and deliciously erotic” (Angela Knight, New York Times bestselling author) Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.

Dr. Sarah Watkins, researcher at a biomedical firm, is struggling with the loss of her fellow scientist fiancé. When the FBI starts asking about his death, she questions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth: Her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew and loved was involved in the torture.

As Murhder and Sarah’s destinies become irrevocably entwined, desire ignites between them. But can they forge a future that spans the divide separating the two species? And as a new foe emerges in the war against the vampires, will Murhder return to his Brothers... or resume his lonely existence forevermore?

I loved that this book was different from most others!! There was just a direct line of love from a to b! None of that stereotypical fall in love then something bad happens and she gets pissed at him for something before they get back together stuff!!

I also have read every book in this series and enjoyed each one completely, this one had no really big plot as all the rest of the books did. There were a few minor plots but nothing to grab onto. I don't understand all the 5 star reviews. But its just my opinion.

After the arrival of multiple letters and the driving need to put his affairs in order (this breaks my heart) Murhder decides he needs assistance to complete a final task. He turns to the only people he knows that can help - the Brotherhood - His past. Finally, we get Murhder's side of the events. Where he really was and what led him to massacre those humans in the brutal way he did. And the truth? What he suffered? What he gave up to protect the ones he loved? And wait till you find out who else knew the truth. I think he may be one of my favorite characters. He just calls to me. My heart broke for all the chit he has been through and his past with?? (that would be a spoiler). With reluctance, the Brotherhood agrees to assist him. Enter Sarah. Sarah is a spunky woman. She has that whole scientific mind thing going (you know squirrel syndrome? ) but she has a heart of gold! I think she will be a great addition to the family. This 'mission' uncovers so many secrets and leads to the truth about the past. Once the Brotherhood realizes what really happened Thor approaches him and extends an olive branch that would give Murhder a chance at having the life he always wanted. (trying not to give spoilers) I will say this though, had that been me I would have told you to take your peace offering at shove it where the sun shines!! I understand why he didn't but ugh that pissed me off something fierce. As always there are also a few secondary storylines running at the same time. John and Xhex are having a bit of trouble with their relationship, though I think it was more John dealing with his own feelings of inadequacy. Always being kept on the fringes of the brotherhood, not feeling as though he is a part of the whole. On top of that, he has somehow gotten himself in a bit of trouble that there may not be a solution to. I know I talked a few books back about the new direction the Brotherhood was going in. I think with regards to that this was another well-crafted introduction to their new era. But! And I was a bit shocked here - what was up with the errors? There were a few editing problems that pulled me from the story enough for me to take notice. Am I the only one that thought Darius might make an appearance? The whole reboot thing? Oh, and Lassiter is, well Lassiter, if he were truly deity I could worship him- He has mad people skills (ie.. Nate and his, mayhem) and is always plotting at something. Going to agree with Sarah though he needs new pants I did have all kinds of questions as this came to a close. IMO there were a few scenes that felt a bit rushed (the book, the lab, the evil doctor, the female in the stilettos, the well ) or seemed to be missing important details. The Why? Or The How?

One of my favorite black dagger brotherhood books of all time!!! Let me start by saying that I know this book has been reviewed many times and theirs mixed reviews ,but for me it was everything I wanted murhder's book to be. My review will be my thoughts and feelings only, since most reviews already told the plot. I have wanted murhder to get his redemption and to be brought back into fold he was one of my faves and what he did so many years ago was nothing that any of the warriors would have done and what the sympath's did to him was awful. This book as with all of ward's books is a rollercoaster ride and always leaves me mentally and emotionally wiped out. But this one in particular had me crying on and off alot,so many emotional moment's and with characters that always feel like family to me. I love the snark and humor and the storytelling is f##king stellar!!! And even after all these years and so many books later every time one of these men of worth get their happy ending I cry like a little b#tch!!! And murhders story was no exception!! And every time they do the induction ceremony it still sends chills though me and I can feel the joy and love and unity of these brothers,it's deep!! I can't get enough of this series!! What a beautiful f##king mind ward has, to have so many stories in her head and the ability to bring them to life! Now that's a thing of beauty! Until next time luv's

Oh my goodness! Another awesome book!! Now I cannot wait for the next one!!! You can read any of the books by themselves or preferably the entire series! Once you enter the BDB world you will never want to leave. This book will take you on a lot of ups and downs especially if you have read the entire series as well as the Fallen Angel Series. I am so excited to see what the next book will bring! J. R. Ward has such a brilliant mind. The only thing that I wish that she would have incorporated more of is Vishous. He is my favorite brother in case you didn’t realize that. Actually I love all of the characters in this series but there is something so compelling about the character that she portrays as Vishous. As a huge fan of J. R. Ward I urge you to read just one book. If you have not read any of the books in this series yet. I would start with the first book in the series which is Wrath and Beth’s story. I challenge you to read one of these books you will not be able to put it down!

Murhder is a character that has been alluded to and whispered about for many books. He is that infamous member of the BDB who was kicked out. It was about time we got his story. Murhder’s story wasn’t anything that I was expecting it to be. I was expecting an evil crazy male, but what we got was a damaged misunderstood, lonely male that missed his brothers. He is just as honorable as any of the other Brother in the BDB. The secondary story revolves around John Mathew, and it is still very apparent he is one of Ward’s favorite characters. I keep thinking they will figure out who John Mathew is. You will have to read the previous books to know that answer. The story also gives us the first appearance of the race’s new deity and possibly his new evil counterpoint. The world is going to be interesting. Murhder and Sarah’s romance was steamy and very passionate. It also brought tears to my eyes a time or two. I was so engrossed with their story. I loved this installment of the BDB, and The Savior is an excellent addition, full of danger, action, passion, and romance. I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.

I loved this book! I didn't really know what to expect as Murhder has been described as psychotic, but he's actually quite sweet. He's still an alpha warrior and he is a little unhinged at times, but he's overall pretty awesome. Murhder is complex and Sarah is brave and brilliant. Naturally, given the emotional history, we see a lot of John Matthew and Xhex and I love how that all turns out. We see more of Throe which is both satisfying and confusing. I think it's time I picked up the Fallen Angels series again seeing as I'm several books behind and it might explain more regarding what Throe's been involved with. It was neat to hear about some of the vampire aspects compared to humans scientifically. The plot as a whole was very compelling. I still love Rhage with his love affair with food and his quick wit. Perhaps the crowning glory of the whole fricking book though, is Lassiter and the Golden Globes. The Savior was everything I hoped it would be and more. It's a must read for any fan of the series. I absolutely feel like reading it again.
