In Darkness Bound
Data Collection by Dalhousie, Dr. Donna L.
New, confused. Powers unknown.
No longer viable in the test pool, he remains in isolation.
Reclassified to staff status. Useful, malleable.
Confined in a sterile research facility and treated like a lab rat, Chris is alone and terrified. His special powers are his only escape, allowing him to...more
More lists with this book...
I couldnt take my eyes of this book!
Its a suspense, comedy, erotic, paranormal-romance, horror depends on the part you read - you will say one of the above.
About the story (without spoilers)
The story starts scaring the hell of you! And thats amazing! I love when the writer go right to the point without useless information. Chris, a paranormal, is kidnapped by someone (I can ...more
Just when I think I figure things out...
Apparently, I missed the memo on the vampies.
I really wanted them to come up with some kind of pretentious governmental mumbo-jumbo name for vamps and THEN have everyone ignore it and call 'em vamps instead. That would have helped cinch the whole thing a loooot better.
It could also have benefitted from more overt hints/clues before the whole vampy thing came out. Little things that you wouldn't really startle at but once the vampy thing ...more
I've read this book twice, first the normal way some years ago, and I loved it, now the audiobook some years later, and I enjoyed it, but I didn't feel all the emotions I felt the first time. But the difference in opinion could've been because I've gotten pickier, because of my mood, because I knew what to expect, or just because I didn't love the narrator, so I'm struggling to decide how to rate and review this.
*Warning, if you really want absolutely nothing that could be ...more
This story is full of tense moments and gasp out loud moments, which disrupted Mr. Smokin xbox concentration (sorry hubs xoxo). Although this isnt a m/m romance I thought the action and suspense took center stage you didnt really notice or mind all ...more
Chris Kincaid is studying veterniary medicine, but not because he wants to be a vet. No, its what his brother wanted his brother he accidentally killed when his psychic powers lashed out. Now hes cheating his way through classes, picking the answers out of the professors mind, trying to live the life his brother would have lived.
But things change when Chris finds himself in a ...more
An Angel, a Psychic and a Vampire get abducted, drugged and jailed in a "research facility" for magical persons... ok- well, that is a little closer to the underlying storyline.
(unfortunately- the first one would have been way more amusing)
'In Darkness Bound' was what I like to call m/m "light." In my opinion, it was also very close to a YA type read. Suspenseful however, it was not.
That being said... This book isn't ...more
The narrator did an excellent job, and I am hoping he is kept for the rest of the series. Great mood,intonation, pacing, and I think he does a great job at the different character's voices.
Reminded me a little bit of another sci fi/fantasy I recently read..not the historical one, but the other contemporary one that is setting up for a series.. 'Seven', it was called...
Anyway,seeing a theme ...more
I don't really have anything to say about this one. Chris was the only characters I liked, cliffhangers bug me, I had no idea what was going on with Matt and Tate 3/4s of the times, how the heck Donna was able to reach for her phone without anyone stopping her all the time annoyed me, Simon had no backbone and ...more
Started off slow, seemed to wind and wend it's way nowhere for a bit...but once the story seemed to develop (with the personal relationships) it went a lot more smoothly. The narration helped (Jack LaFleur's voice is very authoritative).
I'd definitely be interested in the next one because what I thought was a PVS (if not death) for Brennan when he was a kid seems not to be the case at all...
Chris has always been different. He's been all too aware of that ever since his brother died when they were very young- a death that Chris feels that his strange abilities were responsible for. When Chris is suddenly abducted & forced to take part in sadistic tests given by a doctor ...more
(view spoiler)[I was drawn to Chris from the beginning, after he lost his brother (or thought he did) and spent the next years trying to live up to his expectations. I was glad he found someone to trust and support him while being imprisoned by Dalhousie. The methods she used to torture/blackmail/isolate the 3 men seemed a bit off, as I didn't understand very well how the ...more
I enjoyed this combination psychological thriller / paranormal romance. It is written in third person shifting POV which the author handles adroitly. Many times this voice might be awkward but it works well in this story, allowing the reader to get into the heads of all the main characters.
It starts out with a young college student named Chris who has some psychic power which seems to have caused the death of his older brother when he was ...more
There was some confusion a couple of time for me when I didn't know where the POV was but, and this is a problem with audio books for me not because it's an audio book, I don't know if was distracted briefly or the story line just jumped.
The narrator was really good and made it clear when it was changing to a different POV for the ...more
Menage is hit or miss for me.
This time around...I was about middle ground.
I love paranormal, when it's done right.
This one had me interested in the world. I'm mostly sold on it. I'd like to read more.
I really liked Matt, and hope he is in the next book.
I liked Chris. I would have liked to have gotten more of him outside of the institute. Maybe he'll be in future books.
Simon was okay.
Vance was okay.
Patient 66? Hmmm...intrigued. More please.
There is definitely more to explore in book two and Im looking forward to Matts story. ...more

In her spare time, she enjoys reading good books, drinking good wine and fine-tuning her mental filters. ...more
