Warning! Mild spoilers below.

At last, the latest installment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series is here!

I have been waiting for The Savior since April 2018 when I heard Murhder would the main hero. After all, every time Murhder was mentioned in the series, he was described as the only member of the Brotherhood to ever be expelled. The only explanation we got was he went insane and that’s it. I expected a crazy Murhder when I started reading The Savior but it came to a shock to me to see that was not the case. Instead, we meet someone who went through a great deal of psychological torture trying to save the female he loved.  Not to mention, Murhder also feels guilty of being unable to save a pregnant female vampire at the time. However, Murhder is given a second chance when the female he could not save manages to contact him and asks for help. Knowing that he cannot do this alone, Murhder returns to Caldwell to ask the Brotherhood for help. At the same time this happening, we meet Dr. Sarah Watkins. Sara is visited by the FBI who are looking into the death of her fiancé. This visit soon leads Sarah to investigate on her own about her fiancé’s death especially since it becomes clear the biomedical firm where they both worked at might be responsible for his death. It’s this same investigation that leads to Sarah running into and joining Murhder who is on a rescue mission.

Overall, The Savior proved to be one of the most anticipated books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Glad we finally got to know the real Murhder instead of the mentions we got from the other characters. I should have known by now that not everything is as it appears to be which in this case applied to Murhder. I really loved reading how the relationship between Sarah and Murhder developed. These two definitely deserved be together after everything they have gone through. Now since I have finished this installment, I look forward to reading The Sinner, the next Black Dagger Brotherhood novel featuring Syn and Jo Early coming in 2020.
