He saved me… And then he blood-bonded me. Now I’m his.
My first meeting with a Chicago vampire went better than expected.
Up until that night, all I knew about vampires was limited to a few common facts: they drink blood, they get a mean sunburn and if you find yourself alone with one, you’re dead.
Except he didn’t kill me.
Sexy, broody Warin clearly had his own reasons for sparing my life and tying me with his blood, but if he’d known how much trouble I’d attract, I bet he wouldn’t have bothered. When he blood-bonded me, secrets even I didn’t know about myself came to light.
Secrets that will pull us both deep into the eternal war between vampires and the witches determined to rid the world of their evil.
We have only one choice now: fight the forces hell-bent on breaking our bond…
I’m going to come clean here – it was a little difficult for me to read the initial chapters of this book without making comparisons with a certain sparkly vamp book. Don’t get me wrong, in reality, the stories are nothing alike, but it was the initial restrained phase of the relationship between Liv and Warin that felt familiar.
That initial phase also made this book feel a little like it was written in two parts; as though a switch got flipped part way through and turned this into a much more frown up story. That’s not a bad thing – I enjoyed the book after all – it is simply an observation as to how I felt reading this story.
As to the plot, pacing and character development, these were all delivered confidently and worked well. There was a real edge of your seat feeling about this relationship and the ultimate resolution fit Warin and Liv perfectly.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
