Editorial Reviews

Redeeming Zorus is an intoxicatingly erotic futuristic fantasy tale, cyborgs and humans are enemies who don’t play well with each other. Until Charlie meets Zorus, that is.

Charlie, a brave and brash and very sexy woman, is sent on a death-defying prison breaking mission to rescue Zorus, a brave and brash and very sexy cyborg. The highly unlikely pair don’t get along at all. But they find they complement each other extremely well in….other areas.

Narrated with steamy, sensual overtones by Mindy Kennedy, this sexy and titillating sci-fi story will surely keep you on the edge of your bed.

Publisher's Summary

Charlie's brother has put her in the no-win situation of having to rescue a cyborg from Earth Government. It's dangerous, she'll become an outlaw on Earth, but it's the only way to save her brother's life. The imprisoned cyborg is rude, conceited, and probably the biggest jerk she's ever had the misfortune to meet. His only redeeming qualities are his handsome face and sexy, muscular body. Just wow! Still, she can't wait to be rid of him

All cyborgs hate humans, but Zorus is consumed by it. Chained, enslaved, and facing death on Earth once again, he vows revenge. To his utter astonishment, a human female comes to his rescue. She's rude, mouthy, and bossy. And very brave. She baffles him almost as much as she arouses him. Zorus cannot deny that he’s fascinated by her. They are about to lock wills and ignite a firestorm of desire that defies every rule he lives by.

Misogynistic Plot Alert

I didn’t enjoy this story. There were a few almost-rapes from both humans and cyborgs. A thread ran throughout the plot that the heroine was either objectified or treated as a property by most people she encountered. There were also a number of instances/mentions of females offering Zorus sex in exchange for favours. Apparently he was quite happy to take advantage of that before he met Charlie. I’ve read three books in this series but strangely this is the first time I’ve noticed how misogynous this universe is.

Zorus is Redeemed!

I really hated Zorus... Seriously... I though he was an ass... and to have that much feeling for a fictional character is saying something in the author's talent.

This book was absolutely perfect for the series... It was so need...because Zorus really needed a make over... I love the fact that Zorus's human has a male name... lol... funny factor!

Zorus and Charlie clash from their first meeting... and Charlie really stood her ground with Zorus... that was great. But Charlie's brother... Man, I hope to see him again in another book, catching a beat down from Charlie!

Great ending too... I really can say, I like Zorus now... probably b/c of Charlie...but Zorus made a complete turn around in the book. O... Zorus son... seriously... he needs a spanking!

Narration was great... of course...

Great Credit, Buy and Sale!

Love the cyborgs

What made the experience of listening to Redeeming Zorus the most enjoyable?

The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Mindy Kennedy makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill at book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job

This is one of the best in the series!

Redeeming Zorus was one of my favs of this series! I seriously enjoyed Zorus' story, and quite honestly I'm shocked that I enjoyed it. He was such a jerk in all the preceding stories, I didn't even think I'd be interested, but all the reviews were so positive, and it definitely lived up to the rave reviews for sure. This story was mainly about Zorus finding himself in a precarious situation, saved by a human, and then recognizing the similarities between himself and humans, thus swiftly knocking him off his high horse and allowing love and emotions take over. Not to mention the sex scenes were pretty steamy--I loved it!

The Cyborg stories are relatively short, funny, sometimes action packed, erotic, and always a joy to listen to. Definitely a buy, credit, or sale worthy.

Zorus Redeemed

Zorus, You Evil Sadistic Cyborg!!! I have HATED You for SOOO LONG.

Zorus is a member of the Ruling Council that governs cyborgs. His orders are law and must be obeyed. But Zorus is a sick cyborg. He hates humans with a passion, and has been an evil terror to all cyborg males that have attempted to take a human female as a mate. He has gone as far as ordering them to be killed under the pretense that they were Earth Government spies searching for cyborgs.

Zorus had been used as a pleasure slave for females and males before escaping Earth Government years ago. He is still tormented by their abuse and holds hate towards all humans in his heart.

But Charlie isn't like most humans. She is strong, stubborn, and determined to save him, even willing to risk her own life to do it. She amazes Zorus, and she argues with him, orders him around, and refuses to take any of his bull!!!

Leave it Laurann Dohner to create a character I can't stand, only to make me fall head over heals in love with him by the end!!! Redeeming Zorus was a wonderful love story. It was about healing, forgiving and learning to let go of hate.

Mindy Kennedy is fantastic with the delivery of all the series and did not dissapoint with this story.

Surprisingly good

I've despised Zorus from previous books and fully expected to be disappointed in his story. I wasn't. I still think that Dohner could benefit from having writing buddies review her work before publication to avoid some of the gaps of logic in her characterizations & the storylines. Kennedy does well for this series.

Eh...

Not my favorite by far in the series but I'm still a fan. Plot was not quite as interesting and characters not quite as good.

This book is one my all-time favorite books and Laurann Dohner is one of my all-time favorite authors. I love the feeling of danger throughout the book.

Zorus Redeemed by lovable Charlie !

Any additional comments?

Laurann Dohner has done it again! She's penned another stunning novel in her Cyborg Seduction series. They just keep getting better and better. With each book, the cyborgs in this series grow more humane and compassionate as they begin to learn all about love, trust, and compromise and that not all humans are despicable. After book five. which is closely tied to Redeeming Zorus and therefore should be read before it, I was dying to find out how in the world Ms. Dohner was going to pull off Zorus's redemption, much less make him fall in love with a human female. However, she accomplished the remarkable feat with her usual flair for dramatic and emotionally driven prose.

Overall, Redeeming Zorus is a story of redemption through the power of love for a woman who can be equally as strong as her man without losing all that makes her a woman. I highly recommend this entire series to readers of Sci-Fi romance looking for men who are a bit more mechanical than human and the women who bring out their humanity.
I'm looking forward to what will happen in the next book in regards to the continuing seeds of treachery sown in this book by the Markus Model cyborgs. Krell's and Sky's stories are coming up next. I can't wait!

5 Redeeming Zorus Stars


What a fitting title to this book, you don’t really know what to expect because in Ice’s book Zorus is a flaming..butt head.. to put it nicely.
But we find out why he is the way he is, now this doesn't excuse his earlier actions but it explains a whole lot. You know that saying you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you really can if you teach them love and kindness.

Charlie shows Zorus that not all humans are out to get him or his people. That maybe just maybe some humans have the capacity to love and be trusted.

Charlie had a job, and it was to get Zorus to safety and that’s exactly what she did. No matter the harm she was putting herself through she did her job and she does it well. Even if she didn't like Zorus or his pompous attitude, she did the job she was paid to do. I loved that even though she did her job she didn't put up with any grief. Nope not in her job description!

I again really enjoyed Mindy’s narration of this book how she just makes every character their own.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

When the bad guy finally finds a heart.

In the first books I hated Zorus, I wanted so badly for his life pod to malfunction and leave his carcus floating in deep space for life... then they go and have him meat Charlie and she systematically melts his stone cold heart. WARNING, this book does have a huge trigger (a violent near rape by the son). If you have triggers fast forward past it. This was my favorite in the series until Deviant came out, now its down to number 2, Worth a credit! Absolutely!
