More About the Author

I'm the twisted mind behind The Gallows Novels and the After Death Series. If you want to know a bit about me, here it is: I spend too much time indoors and probably watch too many horror films. Some of my favourite things are; Alone time, people who know when to shut up, having a drink, eating pizza (usually after having too much drink the night before), reading books, adult swim cartoons, bad horror and sci-fi movies, proper good TV shows like Dexter & The Walking Dead, and last but not least having a laugh with my hilarious other half - this would usually include some of the above.

I received an e-book copy of this book from the author through an internet giveaway and the following is my honest opinion. Please note, the author has used British English in the writing which will reflect in the spelling of certain words and terminology being used.

While the author warns readers her book that despite the age of her two main characters [their 17 years old], twins Shaun and Sarah Gallows, is that a not YA novel; I feel it might qualify as still being appropriate for the upper range for a NA [New Adult] novel.

These twins, although they’re demon trackers, a job they’re paid to do by the village by their council, they’re different as night and day. While Shaun wants to forget about the powers he has, his sister Sarah embraces them fully.

This difference comes into play when they’re confronted with another demon tracker their age, Melissa Carling, who’s abusing her powers by going after those with super-natural powers who have done nothing wrong. Sarah wants to give her what’s coming to her, but, Shaun become infatuated with her the moment he sees her in a way he has never done before with a girl his age.

If you’re into fantasy and its creature, than this book should please you as it has: demons, fairies, vampires, werewolves and for good measure, witches.

The bad thing about being a Book Reviewer is not really being able to have the luxury to continue reading the next book in the series once you’ve found one which has piqued your interest. This is why, I’m happy to give Ms. Stevenson 5 STARS for the first volume of her Gallows novel series of books.

I read this book from 4/12 – 4/13/15 but due to personal issues I am only posting my review here now.

First off, if you like urban and modern fantasy, read this book. Second, if you don't like fantasy but want to give it a chance with a new author and a new series, read this book.

Other reviewers I've seen have immediately pointed out that fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will like this book. And while I agree, it was not the first thing that occurred to me. The more I read about the sister and brother team in Blood Bound, Sarah and Shaun, the more I was more inclined to link it to a current show on the air, Supernatural, and for all the right reasons. Stevenson wields her writing, action and sarcasm skills with bravado.

The pacing is fast - Stevenson gleefully throws you into the action and hopes you can swim - as you fall into the middle of the twins' monster hunting lives. Stevenson wisely assumes you will get the gist of her world, explaining only what needs to be explained, even in the moments where she deviates into one of her own creations or an interpretation of other lore (vampires, demons, etc.), in much the same manner an author like Terry Brooks would do. What the characters can do and why they do it evolves with the story as needed. It helps keep the plot moving, the narrative fresh, and the characters and their struggles front and centre.

These books are going to catch on. Glad to see that - at the time of this review - Book 2 in her Gallows series, Demon Divided, has just become available.

4/5
(If you're a big fan of Buffy-like stories, which is why I assume you're here, you can probably rate it a 5.)

Review for Blood Bound

Firstly I was given this book for an honest review.

If I had to compare this to any other book, it would have to be the Demon Trapper by Jana Oliver, in its style.

The story is told through the eyes of 19year old twins Sarah and Shaun who are fallen. They live in a small house set in a forest, this is their base, a place to retire to after a long day's work, but nothing ever goes smoothly in their personal lives or work. Their jobs are given to them by the council; if it's helping a witch who is enchanted by black magic or slaying a nest of vampires, the list goes on of the supernatural creatures that are in this book, fairies, demons, werewolves, vampires and witches.
With all these creatures the story is fast paced and keep's you reading - hence why I finished it in two days.

Shaun who is one of the 19year old twin's is an amazing character. I love his sense of humour which is dry and his moody personality. I just took to him straight away. His story is a little more complex than his sisters with a horrible run in with a vampire that costs him an eye and a badly scarred body. His experience makes him supress his powers, making his job harder, but through the story he finds his powers, with the help from some people not all good especially Melisa who is just pure evil.

Sarah on the other hand is caught up in a love triangle between Ray and Dev, it' funny throughout the book but I got annoyed by the end with Dev, I don't know what his story is but I am hoping there is more than what meets the eye and hopefully it will be revealed in the next book. I wasn't completely enthralled with Sarah, yes she was exciting and the story through her eyes was fast paced.

This is a fun book to read. It starts right in the middle of the action as some Demon Trackers are taking out a nest of Vampires and then it just takes off from there. I enjoyed the pace of the story and how Stevens flawlessly jumps from one point of view to another. The Trackers are Twins, but they are very different people. First they look completely different, one a hot short girl, the other a tall disfigured, scary looking guy, and then they have very different personalities. Shaun always seems put upon, and not really into the whole tracking thing, while Sarah is all fired up and ready to kick butt whenever and wherever possible. I like the fact that even though Shaun is much bigger, but Sarah is the fierce one that takes the lead in most of the action. There are dead spaces in between the action sequences, but those spaces are filled with the personalities of the Twins, like Sarah's fascination with bad horror films, and human boys, while Shaun's need to get blind drunk, so he's not thinking about hot girls who are trying to seduce him. I've read a lot of Jim Butcher's "Harry Dresden" books which delve into the whole world of the supernatural and I think Sharon Stevens book stand right up there with Butcher. As an author Stevens writes with a cool, easy tone that you can get into, and makes you want to follow along, and she takes a few turns you wont expect, that will push you, like me, right into her next book Demon Divided. So take my advice, pick a copy and start reading.
