Book #1: MoonBound Clan Vampire Series
My Rating: 4/5 stars
Nicole Martin has dedicated her life to solving the problem of vampirism. As a helpless child, Nicole was powerless to save her family as they were slaughtered by their vampire slaves but as an adult with advanced study and degrees in vampirism, Nicole is no longer helpless. As the head of her family’s multi-million dollar company, Nicole has dedicated her adult life to using vampires and their blood to heal humans and discover new ways to rid the world of what many consider to be a plague.
As a member of the Moon Clan of vampires, Riker has dedicated his life to fighting humans, saving vampires in captivity and, protecting his clan. Since the day his mate died, Riker has channeled his anger and become a fierce warrior and somewhat reckless on occasion. He is respected among his peers but everyone knows that Riker is dedicated to the warrior life and has little to no time for intimate relationships. In fact, since his mate died, Riker has not taken a single woman to his bed. The day he encounters Nicole Martin is the day Riker has to rethink everything he knows about humans.
Kidnapping Nicole Martin is the last thing Riker and his group wanted to do but when their plans go horribly awry, taking Nicole is the only option available. Forced together by circumstance, Nicole and Riker feel an instant attraction to one another but their respective experience tells each they cannot trust the other. Nicole’s time with the Moon Clan completely changes her perception of vampire’s and though she is being held against her will, she jumps in and helps where she can. Riker takes every opportunity to “educate” Nicole on the plight of vampires and what they have experienced at the hands of human like her.
Getting Nicole back to “civilization” becomes more urgent as the days pass for several reasons: 1) the Moon Clan has no interest in keeping a human no matter how helpful she is; 2) returning Nicole means the Moon Clan gets one of their own back in a prisoner exchange and; 3) the longer Riker and Nicole are near one another the stronger their attraction becomes. To say these two are facing monumental obstacles doesn’t even come close. As plot continues to unfold both Nicole and Riker are surprised by one another the lengths each is willing to go to in order to make a really craptastic situation right.
The Bottom Line: Larissa Ione has brought something new to the world of vampires and I am all over this!!! The Moon Clan Vampire series does a couple of things I am very intrigued by: 1) in this universe, vampires are still hot and sexy but they are also slaves and; 2) the vampires and their origins are tied to both demons and Native American tradition. I am loving the fact that Ione’s vampires are not just removed from society but actually in hiding from humanity as this creates a far more intense read. Riker and his clan is full of interesting personalities from their leader right on down to the mad scientist who is consumed with finding the right flavor combination of Kool-Aid. Nicole’s transition from the human world into the vampire world creates a wonderful sense of tension and drama and when she and Riker finally give into their extreme desire well, the book gets even better. I always like it when an author trots out something new and as soon as I finished this read, I trotted right on over to Amazon and bought book two in the series, Chained by Night.
Riker of the MoonShadow clan hates humans, specifically the Martins. Because of them he lost his wife and child. He has been waiting to gain his revenge for years, and now is his chance. Daedalus Corporation has kidnapped Neriya, a ShadowSpawn vampire who was visiting the MoonBound. In order to stop a war, Riker needs to rescue Neriya. The easiest way to do this, he assumes, is to kidnap Daedalus Corporation's CEO, Dr. Nicole Martin.
As a child, Nicole witnessed a horrifying event convincing her that vampires are evil. Now she is face to face with her nightmare. Riker and Nicole have a shaky start with an extremely negative intertwined past they need to overcome to save the vampires.
Larissa Ione has done it again, she lured me in with the promise of a sexy new vampire series and HOOKED me! I freaking loved this book and could gush about it for a very VERY long time. I already tell everyone I know who likes paranormal romance that Larissa Ione is a MUST read author, BOUND BY NIGHT is no exception.
There is so much going on in this story as it's the set up of the series, but that doesn't take anything away from the romance of Riker and Nicole. The storyline is dark and sometimes a bit brutal, but bits of sarcastic humor seamlessly blended in keep it from being depressing. Mmm...and I can't forget the sizzling sexual tension that kept both Riker and Nicole on their toes, and the way they steamed up the pages when at last they could no longer resist each other. These guys quickly moved to my "favorite couples" list. That and the fact that one of my favorite tropes (I can't say which it is, as it would be a spoiler!) was used made this one of my favorite books that I've read in a long time.
All of the characters are very complex and well fleshed out. I was captivated not only by Riker and Nicole, but many of the side characters also intrigued me as I wondered who else was going to have the chance of finding their HEA. The MoonBound clan leader, Hunter; the sexy loner, Myne; bad-ass vampire Katina, and that's just the tip of the interesting characters.
I can't wait to delve back into this new world of the MoonBound Clan Vampires, but I'm not disappointed that as I wait I will get to (finally!!!) read Reaver and Harvester's story in December. I've been waiting a while for their story. :) I'm glad that Larissa will be going back into the Demonica and Lords of Deliverance universes, as I'm not ready to give them up.
