On his first day at work after completing his training, they are assigned to a murder case which immediately takes them on a non-stop action journey that spans back to WW2, megalomaniac villains, crazed scientists and shadowy and secret groups. The two main characters are likeable and easy to engage with and I liked their interaction and chemistry. Nicholas Drummond is like a sexy James Bond…complete with right English accent, a butler, a gorgeous stately English home and an English title. There’s no way Mike Caine can resist this alpha male.
A good suspenseful thriller that is entertaining and easy to read. ...more
CHAINED BY NIGHT is the 2nd book in the MoonBound Clan Vampire series by one of my favorite PNR authors and since reading the 1st book Bound By Night
CHAINED BY NIGHT is the 2nd book in the MoonBound Clan Vampire series by one of my favorite PNR authors and since reading the 1st book Bound By Night https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... earlier this year I have been eagerly waiting for Hunter’s story. Leader of the MoonBound Clan….
I was not disappointed……..what a fabulous follow up to the amazing and original , dark and sensual world that Larissa Ione has created.
The last book ended with Hunter, one of the few first pure second generation vampires (with a bit of Native American thrown in…
“There’s an old Cheyenne saying about how, when a man is as wise as a serpent, he can afford to be as harmless as a dove.”
and a bit of demon too…..) agreeing to mate the evil Rasha, daughter of the rival ShadowSpawn’s clan so that he could protect his clan and keep the peace between the rival vampire clans.
He will sacrifice his happiness for his clan’s survival – even marrying someone he despises. No two sisters could be so different. Rasha, the Evil twin, strong warrior and father’s favorite and Aylin, second born, abused and tortured all her life by her family and clan because of her leg deformity is seen as a weak to be ignored vampire that no man wants. But MoonBound does something to her…we begin to see the real Aylin…strong, intelligent, caring, loyal, loving and a true warrior. I loved seeing her bloom…
But when he meets Rasha’s twin sister, Ailyn, he instantly feels drawn to her. There’s an immediate and powerful connection between them and as he gets to know her, the more difficult it is for him to keep his word of mating with Rasha, who he despises more each day as she shows her true colors.
To break a demonic curse Hunter and Aylin who has volunteered in Rasha’s place…no this evil one does not do anything for anyone…..will have to cross over to a demon realm and complete three deadly tests.
“Aylin had gotten under his skin, and for all his experience fighting enemies, he had no defense against a female whose strength humbled him, whose voice soothed him, and whose touch drove him wild.”
Soon they give in to the undeniable sexual chemistry for each other and Hunter must now find a way to be with the woman he really loves without betraying his clan.
Giving us insights and revelations of the characters …ones we know from previous book…my favorites Riker and Nicole, who feature quite a bit in this book….and new characters that I feel we will get more of in the next books.
One of my favorite scenes…..when Hunter teaches Aylin to play video games………….
“...but sometimes mindless entertainment was a release of its own. Most important, mindless entertainment didn’t come with complications.”
Action packed, fast paced and so well written, the author has created yet another world that is just as exciting and erotic as her Demonica series.
