I was beyond disappointed and actually quite furious about what this book represents. Like many other readers, I have been really looking forward to read Zacarias' story. He might have not felt emotions, but as a reader I could feel his love and commitment for his brothers in four other books in this series. What happened to him? He was abusive in every way and shape imaginable. I was disgusted by him and by myself for purchasing this book. I don't believe in burning books, so I mostly donate the books I don't care for to the public library. With this book, my conscious wouldn't allow me to do that, as I don't want to subject anyone else to this nightmare.
