I couldn't put it down. I have been waiting for Zane to fall in love and leave it to him to fall hard! This was a wonderful book and I love this series! Ollie's review for bittenbyparanormalromance Zane's Redemption is the 5th book in the Scanguards Vampires series and it has not lost its steam and ability to pull the reader in with its compelling storyline and characters that regular readers of the series have come to love. Tina somehow manages to capture the essence of her characters and make them jump off the pages and come alive that you cannot help but feel their turmoil and passion throughout the book.
Regular readers of the series will reme Ollie's review for bittenbyparanormalromance Zane's Redemption is the 5th book in the Scanguards Vampires series and it has not lost its steam and ability to pull the reader in with its compelling storyline and characters that regular readers of the series have come to love. Regular readers of the series will remember Zane as the dangerous, reclusive Scanguard vampire that even his friends know to keep their distance at times or face his wraith. However, we get a closer look at Zane and learn about the past horrors he endured and understand the reason for him existing on hate and revenge alone until he meets Portia.
I thought Portia was the perfect fit for Zane and the right person that would be able to breakthrough the wall that he had erected around his heart to keep everyone out. Her sweet and innocent charm, her ability to see the passionate vampire underneath the cold exterior and understanding the deep pain he must have gone through to make him the way he was made Portia the perfect person for him.
I loved some of the banter that occurred in the book between Zane and Portia that showed the playful side of Zane. There were several scenes in the book that had me grinning from ear-to-ear and laughing out loud that people around me gave me strange looks. Without spoiling anything, the scenes with Yvette were hilarious. Oh and who could resist Z? Portia ignites feelings inside Zane that he had refused to ever feel again surface to the top like a volcano. The heat that these two generate on the pages is so sizzling hot you will need to hose yourself off to cool down.
I loved how Zane could show both his animalistic and gentle side with Portia wow he really knows how to love hard and soft. Readers will definitely treasure this book as it will pull them in on a wonderful journey of highs and lows. Jan 19, Ezinwanyi rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook , vampires , paranormal-romance , urban-fantasy. Zane was assigned to protect a hybrid young woman named Portia and she was a handful.
She was trying to get him to help her lose her virginity before her 18th birthday because her body will freeze in whatever form she was in at But Zane isn't the flowers and candy kind of guy. Plus he was on a mission to assassinate a doctor who performed experiments on him while he was in a concentration camp. The only problem was something about Portia called to him and he couldnt resist her. What happens with the two worlds collide? I really liked this story but I docked it a half star because the author defanged Zane. Zane was scary in all the other books, acting like a sociopath and here he was kind of docile.
He would assert how much of a monster he was, but his actions didn't show that. I guess the beauty tamed the beast after all. Portia was smart, brave and likable. She was clear about what she wanted and went after it. She sizzled with Zane and they worked. I hope the author remembers to hook up her BF Lauren soon. View all 4 comments. Jul 11, Louise Kemp rated it it was amazing. Zane was introduced to us readers in Amaury's Hellion, and as soon as I read about him I wanted to know more and get into his character and back story, this book doesn't disappoint on these fronts as it gives you plenty of both!!
It's hard to write this review as there are a few surprises along the way that I wouldn't want to give away and spoil anyone's reading pleasure, so I have given a brief outline of the story and my thoughts. I will also give a guarantee, if you have read the other Scanguards books you are about to become a member of team Zane, and you will not be disappointed lol :o The book gets straight into the action with Zane being a vigilante and brutally killing a rapist.
When Samson hears of his actions Zane has his class A authorization revoked and is given a baby sitting job looking after 20yr old Portia, while the Scanguard boss decides what further action to take. Portia is a hybrid vamp with a problem, once she turns 21 her body will set in it's final vampire form and she will be forever a virgin. This is something she doesn't want as every time she has sex as a vampire it will be a painful experience.
With her father leaving town on business Scanguards are called in by her overbearing father to protect her virginity, whilst Portia is determined to loose it. There is an instant attraction between Zane and Portia and the chemistry is HOT, they have a will they won't they thing going on!! There are lots of twists and turns for the coupe and when Portia goes missing the full Scanguard cast is there to help.
I love how the rest of the cast of Scanguards are always included and still developing in each book we are also introduced to Zane's oldest friend Quinn and his new buddy little Z ;O I was very nervous before reading this book, the similarities between Zane and Zsadist from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series are very strong and Lover Awakened is one of my all time favorite books, I was worried this would be to similar to that and I would be disappointed I absolutely loved this character, he is the bad boy of the pack and the other guys always jump to conclusions regarding his actions and his character and think the worst of him.
He has kept his past a secret from his colleagues and he isn't really close to any of them. His back story was heart wrenching and so well written, you could totally understand how and why he has become the cold calculating killer he is now and even feel his loss and sympathize. My only criticism would be that I wanted more, I could have read double what was written I wanted to know more about Zane's back story. I would have like more time for the build up of the Zane and Portia relationship and then I wanted to spend more time with the couple!!
This is more a compliment to the writer for creating such good characters that I want to spend more time with. Now looking forward to the next book which I believe is Quinn's story :O This is the 5th installment of the "Scanguards Vampires" series by Tina Folsom. This book tells the story of Zane, the darkest and most dangerous vampire of the scanguards organization.
It fills in his life in Nazi Germany and how that affected how he came to be the way he is and what motivated his destructive behavior. Zane, who has isolated himself from any emotional relationships and ties, is on the fast track to being fired from his Scanguard security position because of his erratic and incre This is the 5th installment of the "Scanguards Vampires" series by Tina Folsom.
Zane, who has isolated himself from any emotional relationships and ties, is on the fast track to being fired from his Scanguard security position because of his erratic and increasingly dangerous vigilante actions. As a last resort his boss assigns him to a routine bodyguard stint for a college student whose vampire father is out of town. Protecting Portia Lewis should be an easy assignment for the seasoned vampire to prove he could complete a job without flying off the edge. Portia Lewis, a rare hybrid, is a treasured daughter whose father worries some man will take advantage of her innocence and introduce her to carnal pleasure while he's away and hires Scanguard Security to keep her safe.
Zane, who feels his skills as a top clearance security operative are being wasted as a "babysitter," knows if he refuses or quits this assignment it will be the end of his employment. But, as he's around Portia and talks to her he begins to question the motives surrounding his assignment. Is she the innocent in need of protection or an out of control party girl just out for a good time needing to be kept out of trouble?
Zane's Redemption - Scanguards Vampires #5 | Read Novels Online
Zane finds himself fighting an increasing attraction to Portia who feels the same for him. But having sex with her would guarantee he would loose the respect of his fellow Scanguard vampire family and his job. It would also affect his all consuming need to seek vengence on all those from his past responsible for his family's deaths and turning him into a vampire. This has got to be the best of the series so far. The glimpses of Zane in previous books gave little hope he would change. His sadistic pleasure for pain and hurt went too deep. It would take a strong story line to make me believe he would be loved or could love.
This author delivers. She weaves a story that had me turning page after page until the end where I cried because it ended it was that good. Scenes between the two are steamy hot but not graphic. Author doesn't give a any ground work of a possible storyline for the next book but I'm sure there will be one. First Impression Screw Phury. I found Zsadist's real twin and it's Zane!! I'm so happy to pick this series back up and dive into Zane's story, I've been so curious as to what happened in his past and now I'll finally get some answers!
Opening Lines "Zane heard a scream and blocked it out to prolong feeding from the succulent neck of the Latino kid he'd cornered in an alley in the Mission, the predominantly Mexican and South American neighbourhood of San Francisco. Tina Folsom did not disappoint, although Amaury will always be my favourite. I didn't know what to expect while reading Zane's Redemption and I was shocked to realise all the pain and suffering he had to endure. His past helped me understand him better and also had me hoping for him to really experience love. Portia was a great match for Zane.
I couldn't how cruel her father was!! The moment Portia and Zane meet it's instant and intense attraction, wow. I enjoyed all the new characters we were introduced to minus Lauren, I'm happy Lauren wasn't a major character because she annoyed the heck out of me. This series just keeps getting better and better and I'm really enjoying how Tina Folsom is challenging her characters and allowing real character growth. This series just continues to get better and better.

I never feel like each story is being recycled, Tina Folsom manages to keep the stories fresh and exciting, oh and how can I forget, steamy ;. Up next, Quinn's Undying Rose! Known for his violent temper and callous lack of compassion, Zane's out-of-control rage, born of the cruelty he suffered during the Holocaust, drives him to focus only on revenge. If she is to avoid having to live out her immortal life as a virgin, she must find a lover in that short time--something her father hires Zane to prevent.
The moment Portia and Zane meet, rules begin to bend, and a forbidden attraction bursts into flames hotter than the hell of Zane's past. He fights temptation at every turn. It's all in vien as he falls for the beauty that ties his past to his present. I have mentioned in the past that I have become addicted to this series. Zane's story has thus far been my favorite. Thank you Tina! You ROCK! Nov 05, The BookChick rated it it was amazing Shelves: vampires , read-again , 5-star-read , tina-folsom.
This book was absolutely brilliant. Tina Folsom did an amazing job in her portrayal of a young man who was turned into a vampire and escaped from the concentration camp after his parents were killed and after killing his sister, at her request, because she didn't want to live life as a vampire. The story was emotional and complex. Zane's became violent, self-destructive, and bent on seeking vengence to those who wronged him and his family. Enter Portia who wins his trust and his love. The romanc This book was absolutely brilliant.
The romance between the two happens rather naturally and it wasn't forced which made the book all that much more interesting. The story has a lot of interesting twists and turns and you never find out the connection between Zane's tormenter and Portia's father until almost the end. This story was emotional on another front because Folsom dedicated this story to her grandfather who was a prisoner at a concentration camp. Her dedicated prickled my eyes with tears before I even started reading the storyy.
Masterfully done! Sep 10, Cindyg rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. I love Zane This is definitely my favorite book in the series. Portia was just the perfect mate. The emotions jumped off the pages and had me tearing up. Be sure to set aside some time because you won't be able to put this book down once you start it Zane is one tortured soul and so deserving of love Awesome book Nov 08, B. Walker rated it it was amazing Shelves: bk-s-library , vampire-challenge You all know I've been waiting for this book since the second book in the series.
It's finally here and I didn't wait one second to go out and buy it! OMG am I glad I didn't wait! Zane is a crazy vampire that has no thoughts about inflicting pain upon people, especially when it's to help his boss at Scanguards where he works as a bodyguard. After killing a would b You all know I've been waiting for this book since the second book in the series.
After killing a would be rapist, he is punished for his brutality by his boss Samson Woodford, by being placed on a "babysitting" job. Zane is furious with being placed on such a demeaning job, but knows he cannot live without his family and obides by Samson's terms, including taking a puppy into his home as well. Can big, bad ass Zane be softened by a puppy? Portia Lewis is a hybrid, half vampire half human, loved and sheltered by her father her entire life.
She is about to come into adulthood on her twenty first birthday where her body will stay the same the rest of her life. When her best friend Lauren, also a hybrid, tells her she must lose her virginity before then or be destined to pain over and over again, Portia sets out to do just that.
When Zane meets Portia for the first time, neither of them can deny there is a connection. Zane is not happy about his new charge, or the fact that he'd like to do more than just guard her. As they grow closer, Zane learns of what her father is doing to her, and vows to help her. Breaking all the rules he's vowed to uphold, he whisks Portia away to a private location, and the hunt begins. Samson is pissed that Zane would break a clients trust and begins to use all his resources to find them.
In the meantime, Portia and Zane grow closer, and as she breaks through his walls, his heart starts to soften as they fall in love. After taking her virginity, and don't think for a minute Folsom left out the steamy sex scenes, Portia notices a tattoo on Zane's arm. Unable to control his feelings, he breaks down and tells her of his past, and torture he endured from a concentration camp at the hands of an evil doctor. Over 60 decades he's hunted the men that ruined his life, turned him into a vampire and killed his family.
All but one, are dead. Crying for the man she loves and the pain he's endured, Zane can't understand why she's not running away. It's wonderful to see such a hard man be reduced to such softness, to know that he's actually capable of love and I found myself very happy for Zane.
Folsom throws in a surprise twist that I didn't even see coming! I have to say that I now think this is my favorite book of the entire series. It was well written and an OMG I-cannot-put-it-down kind of read. Zane and Portia are such a great fit for each other and it is just phenomenal!
What is Kobo Super Points?
All of the characters were amazing and I can't wait to see what Folsom brings us next. I highly recommend this book and the entire series! Go get your hands on it, put it on your shelves or on your kindle, because this is one series you won't mind reading over and over again!
May 22, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: paranormal. Loved it - my favourite of the series so far! This installment tells the story of Zane, who's a bit of a loose cannon within Scanguards. Because of his violent, impulsive behaviour, Zane is demoted to lesser duties.
Zane's Redemption (Scanguards Vampires #5)
And it's while 'babysitting' college student Portia that his cold, hardened heart begins to thaw. I loved Zane and Portia. She was feisty and strong, and he was just waiting for the right woman to come along, without even realising it. His past was heartbreaking 5 "baby girl" stars!!! His past was heartbreaking, and what I love about this series is that when the characters have issues or reservations, they're for genuine reasons, rather than something that's there for drama's sake.
Get A Copy
Zane was right to guard his heart. And I loved that I did not see the twist about three quarters of the way in! Holy crap! My only quibble with this book and the series as a whole is that the ending is always a little rushed. Although this book had a flavour of Zsadist's story from BDB, this is definitely better, in my opinion. Because while I enjoyed most of the BDB books, the incessant brand naming, and the guys speaking like grunting teenage boys wore on me, and padded the books out no end. This is definitely not the case here.
