The Savior by J.R. Ward
Black Dagger Brotherhood #17


Title: The Savior
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood #17
Author: J.R. Ward
Publisher:  Gallery Books
Release Date: April 2, 2019

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?

Recently after arriving from ROR, I realized I was many books behind in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  

How did that happen?

I blame work 100%.

Anyway, this is the love story of Murhder and Sarah. Other prominent characters include John Matthews and Xhex.

Sarah is a scientist working in a lab at Biomed. She discovers that experiments have been occurring in a young male patient. Her fiancée died two years earlier of an insulin overdose. She was devastated when it happened but now she wonders if he knew what was going on at the lab.

Murhder was part of the BDB but he was expelled after murdering humans. Warth believed he was crazy. For the past two decades, he has been living in exile in SC and running a B&B but not really living.

Then he receives letters that can help him right a wrong and Murhder is ready for this. The BDB is the only one who can help him.

During his search, he will cross paths with Sarah. Their connection is instant but can they have a future together?

Emotional at times, and with plenty of action at others, J. R. Ward has created an amazing world that I’m always glad to revisit.

Murhder and Sarah made a great couple together I also enjoyed the second major storyline with John Matthew and  Xhex. It tied well together with the main couple.

I'm only sad that my Zsadist had only a few lines but it always makes me happy that the few he has, count for something. 

Cliffhanger: No

4/5 Fangs
