According to the FAQ on the author's website (see: ):

"Q: Is Chained By Night the last book in the MoonBound Clan Vampires series? Tell me there are more books!

Larissa’s Answer:
Yes! Here’s the deal: I HATE releasing one book per year in a series, so instead of doing that over the course of the next 3 years (there are 3 more books planned in the series,) I’m going to concentrate on writing them all at once, that way they can all release in rapid succession. Yes, there will be a long wait between Chained by Night and the next book, but you’ll get the last three back to back. At least, that’s the plan. And for those wondering, Myne’s book is next!"

Hope this helps!(less)

Read my interview with Larissa Ione all about this book and a few peaks into the next one here
4.5 Stars

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.

This book just reminded me all over again why I'm such a big fan of Larissa Ione's writing. If I had any doubts about this new series after finishing Bound by Night, I don't have a doubt i

Hunter and Aylin

Forever. Sounded like way too damned long to Hunter.

Hunter does not want to be mated. As a second generation vampire, a born vampire and the leader of the MoonBound Clan, he is obliged to be mated to one of the daughters of the ShadowSpawn Clan’s leader. More accurately he has to mate the first-born, Rasha. Since the two girls are twins, the first-born is only slightly older than the second-born i.e. insignificant Aylin. And this is a good thing, he guesses, because the second da
I liked the romance part of the book very much even though I felt like I have already read that love story a few times before. The rest of the plot though, not so much, and in some ways it was predictable, but entertaining.

I don´t really like the world that this series is based on, it doesn't attract me and it seems way more fitting to werewolves than vampires.
In this particular book, the fact that she introduced the demon realm and the challenges through me off a little, that part just did

I really really don't know where to start so I guess I won't.
I only know that for all I could remember, this could be the only book, that gave me goosebumps when I received it, ever. I was soooo thrilled.
There were ups and downs, moments when I thought with a bit disappointment, "What???", or, "Eeeew...", or "Drat, after I was hoping so much..."
But, after going through more than a half book, things were start
Vampires, heaps of action and forbidden love.
I absolutely, freaking, LOVED IT!

The second book in Larissa Ione’s MoonBound Clan Vampire series totally blew me away. Her vampire world is cleverly tied in with Native American mythology, and provides a spin on the usual paranormal setting with vampires constantly hunted by humans and living their lives in hiding. But the mythology and the politics between the different vampire clans brings a whole heap of danger, intrigue and action, and it is fant

Wow! I really enjoyed the first book in the series, BOUND by NIGHT, but I loved this one! Hunter is one hot alpha male and Aylin is a remarkable, strong heroine with spunk and sass. I was rooting for them from the beginning. Ms. Ione’s take on the vampire genre is intriguing and unique, her world-building fantastic, and her characters have depth and … well, character! Great read!

Ohhhh... I was soooo right!!! :)

This one was as good as the previous one!

I loved the heroine Aylin as much as I loved Nicole in the Bound by Night!

As she's a birth defect that makes her lame, I was expecting a needy damisel in distress, but since the very beginning I realized that she's anything but! And, obviously, I loved her!

She's been demeaned by everybody (scums, the last of them!!!) in her clan. She's been starved and looked upon as a tainted one, but she's so quietly strong that I could

Another great book by Larissa Ione! I didn't enjoy the previous book that much, but Chained by Night was wonderful.

Hunter was just great, I love how loyal he is to his clan, and how he stood up for Aylin. But I must say Aylin stole the show for me. She is just an amazing character, and it was wonderful seeing her realise just how strong she really is despite her disability.

The romance between Hunter and Aylin was passionate and intense, and I rooted for them to have their HEA.

I'm really enjoyi

Hmm... Not sure how to rate this. Around 3-4 stars.

It took me a while to finish it. And not because it wasn't awesome, but because after years and dozens of vampire and paranormal books, it's hard to start a new series and for it to keep me interested. Yes, there is the unmistakable Ione writing style that I ADORE, with all her wit, passion, badass characters, great world-building and kick ass scenes, and there are new spins to the vampire myths, but I can't help myself from comparing this with

ARC Review: 4.5 Stars

I am thrilled to say that I loved this book! This is exactly what I’m looking for in a PNR.

1) This story features an honor-bound hero willing to sacrifice for his happiness for the security of his clan 2) a woman who, due to a physical disability, has been underestimated and abused most of her life. She blossoms under these circumstances. 3) There is serious tension between the clans and with humans whose prejudices are being riled.

I enjoyed this book better than book 1, but there is still something missing for me.
In this sequel, Hunter, chief of MoonBound clan has to fulfill the bargain he made in book 1, to marry the daughter of a rival clan. While Hunter wasn't looking forward to mating Rasha, as a leader, he had to create alliances as the human attacks on vampires continue to increase.

Rasha travels to her new clan with her twin sister Aylin as a decoy in case they come across trouble. Aylin is disposable since she has
4 1/2 stars. Heart the hero and heroine in this so much. Loved the bond they formed through adversity- even if it was in a demon realm which is sorta familiar, but still works for me.

Srsly. So good, but too long a wait. Wish it was longer too. (Not that it was short just didnt want to leave their world.)

I want real romances like these -not just 50 Rip Off Shades of 50 Shades of Gray stories like are getting cranked out now.

Really good second book in a series! Loved both the main characters and I like where the main story is going ... I wish I knew when the next book in this series is coming out ... I've looked everywhere and can't find anything.
4-4 ½ stars – Paranormal/Vampire Romance

I enjoyed this even more than the first book of the series. Larissa Ione always delivers first-rate, original, and addictive paranormal romances.

When I read the first book in this series I remember thinking that it was a good story and the plot of the series was really intriguing, but it left me wanting a bit more. So I was both excited and scared to go into this one. I wanted this one to live up to the potential of this series! But I was scared to have high expectations. I shouldn’t have worried. Larissa made me happy, once again!

Even though this didn’t have the level of sexual intensity, I guess, that I’ve come to expect with Laris

5/5 - Hunter x Aylin - amazing story

So so good. Larissa Ione has the right amount of everything in her writing. And she has likable heroines. They are as important to the story as the heroes and are fundamental in their mates growth.

The mythology is still so good. Vampires x Native American lore and culture.

I wish more books in this series would be released.

The old vampire ways are are brutal, they abuse weaker vampires, shun those with any abnormalities and kill for sport.

Narrated by Amy Landon

I loved this feel-good paranormal romance that leaves you with the warm and fuzzy feeling that good always triumphs over evil. Moreover, I’m a sucker for an underdog, and this novel features the “ugly duckling” trope, making the triumph that much more satisfying. This was my first experience with Larissa Ione, but I have no doubt that I will be seeking out more of her works in the future, as this well-wri

MoonBound´s leader Hunter made a deal with his enemy in the last book, to save the clan he promised to take his daughter for a mate. Now the time has come for the wedding..
Aylin, twin sister to the intended mate Rasha, comes along as a decoy for the poachers or any other ambushes, but this is still better than staying at ShadowSpawn, where she´s seen as a freak and abomination as the second twin, not to mention her crippled leg.

100 year old Vampires, saying "dude" to each other, playing the x-box to relax and have a voice and personality of a teenager? Yeah, no. Too immature.

The story would've had potential. Read it 5 years ago, gave it 4 stars. But, the execution wasn't great. I can't take this seriously. And a world where vampires are the slaves of the human race, well I'm not convinced.

Oh, and the Hero only chooses the Heroine, because he finds his promised mate with another male in his bedroom. He had all the inten

I really enjoyed Chained by Night (MoonBound Clan Vampires #2) by Larissa was so much better then the first book in the series and I'm glad I didn't give up on the series after reading Bound by Night (MoonBound Clan Vampires #1).

Both Hunter and Aylin's characters were well written, and the chemistry between them palpable.
I thought that Samnult's tests were really the key to building Hunter & Aylin's relationship and Aylin finding her inner strength and accepting herself as a person.

** ★★★☆ **

The second book in the Moonbound Clan Vampires series. Mmmm, I was conflicted about rating this book, 3.5 but whether to mark it up from three or down from four.

Maybe I have just reached saturation point with vampires because the world building and storyline are fine. I just didn't love it although the series has potential, especially the story of vampire Myne which must be in the works. And it did build and improve on the first book, Bound by Night. Therefore up to four, it is.

I'm a huge fan of Ione so when she started this series I couldn't wait and I was not disappointed! It was phenomenal!
I'm counting down the days until the next one!!
