The Book Junkie Reads . . .
There was a lot her for someone that has not read the first book of this series. I was still drawn in by the secrecy, deceit, backhanded ways, the court life, the life of an assassins, the demons, intrigue, kidnapping, assaults, drama, plots. There was just so much and I just had a hard time putting it down. The danger. The slowing building romance. The everything. I found more than just Keir and Cleo. The world itself was a central figure throughout the story. I anticipate reading more and goin ...more

Keur is a vampire who can be invisible which is good for a spy and assassin. Which Keir was for Lady Arianne whom he owed a life debt as Keir is a condemned killer who must stay in the shadows so he won’t be found and killed. Lady Arianne is the last of her bloodline and has many enemies who want to see her dead and has had an assassination attempt on her life. Arianne is the Lord of Galbraith- one of the Cities Below. Lady Adrianne is well protected between Keir and her Captain of the Guard Wol ...more

This is book 2 in Jen Colly's Cities Below series. She is a new to me author, and I'm glad I decided to read this. I do need to go back and read book 1. I'm always amazed at the different varieties of vampire stories out there, and I never tire of them. This is a very good series, which I will definitely continue.
At the heart of this vampire story is loyalty and love. Keir is a vampire who can take Spirit form (invisibility), which makes him a very good spy and assassin for Lady Arianne,who is t

Bound picks up where In the Dark left off and much like that first book in the series, the romance side of this tale is more side story to the political intrigue and battles with demons going on in these vampire cities. Most of the story takes place in Galbraith, but we do get some peeks at Balinese and the aftermath of their battle with demons. The romance between Keir and Cleopatra is a slow build with the added bonus of being forbidden. We also have quite the cliffhanger to ponder for the nex ...more

I have definitely been looking forward to this book since finishing the first one, and it did not disappoint. It has been years since the first one came out though, and so I reread it before picking this one up. I actually thought it wouldn't matter much what with this one taking place in a different city, but I was wrong. While the story does start out in Galbraith and focuses on there, Balinese gets worked into the story and becomes just as important if not more so by the end. And I was super ...more

While this book started off a bit confusing, since I hadn't read the first book in the series, I really got into it very quickly! The love between the two main characters grabbed me and held on tight. It pulled my heartstrings and made me wish the book was much longer.

Keir Falderra is an assassin, bound to his mistress through an unbreakable life debt to the Lady of Galbraith. When an assignment leads to him being gravely injured, he goes to the only person he trusts besides his Lady: Cleopatra

This book was a bit hard for me to rate. To me, it was much less a romance as it is marketed and more of a political urban fantasy. The main two the story is said to be about seemed like side characters to much bigger things going on in the plot. At the beginning there were a lot of names and it overwhelmed me a bit. There wasn't much romance in my opinion and the love interest leading lady cried. Oy, the crying. Okay, that's why it got knocked down a couple stars, now....

Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Bound" by Jen Colly is book Two in" The Cities Below" series. This is the story of Keir and Cleo.
I haven't read the previous book and did feel with this one I should have. It started off somewhat confusing at first because of that but it quickly took off for me. Keri is what we would call a servant and Cleo would be the upper class type person. Keri has watched Cleo from afar with the knowledge he is out of her league. Until one day he is hurt and needs someone he can trust which would be Cleo
