"Withthe first book in her Dark Souls series, Hope gives readers a page-turning lovestory about two lost souls. Her worldbuilding is on par with Sherrilyn Kenyon,and she tortures her characters just as much! The secondary characters, withtheir own superpowers and faults, add to the fun. Can't wait for book two!"
--4.5 stars, KarenSweeny-Justice
Lia never put stock in destiny until Jace dies in her arms, then miraculously comes back to life. Whenever he’s near, her soul responds and her body burns. And she’s consumed by odd dreams she’s convinced are Jace’s lost memories. Except Jace is no longer human. He’s something destined to kill.

What if legends became reality and the Nephilim and their descendants continued to roam undetected on Earth?
Soul Bound by Anne Hope is an urban fantasy about those giants who survived and multiplied over the centuries, while protecting and corrupting humans in equal measure.
A fantasy romance of this sort won't be complete without the forbidden fruits - the humans and their souls - playing their part. For Lia Benson MD, the fateful day at the Oregon hospital seems to stretch on forever until Jace Cutler is brought in with a deadly stab wound. The doctor's despair turns into an unexplainable sense of relief and pleasure when he is miraculously revived shortly after dying on the ER table.
Jace, her sister Cassie's ex-boyfriend, wakes up but without a memory. Poor Lia's nightmares don't end there. Strange happenings at the hospital and Jace's sudden departure leave her baffled and saddened. Jace has changed; physically stronger with special abilities, an increased longing for darkness and an unquenchable need for Lia. A strange connection is forged with Jace which brings the two closer, but also brings dark, soulless and truly evil creatures closer still.
Even as they struggle to accept the new realities, trouble is brewing with humanity's future at stake. The immortals they meet are both good and evil. Trusting the wrong ones could sound the death knell for them. Should they fight with the Watchers - the half-humans or Hybrids like Jace who defend humans from both rogue hybrids and evil descendants of the Nephilim - the Kleptopsychs? Is there a price to pay? Will the soul mates be torn apart forever?
While the romance elements can scorch your screens (falling into the spicy category), the action sequences are equally absorbing. The narration moves at a fluid pace and the back story is artfully weaved into it. The side stories are well developed and the author gives you an insight into the minds of the humans, the Nephilim and Hybrids alike. Jace and Lia are interesting characters in their own right.
If fallen angels and their spawn of destruction fascinate you, this fictional tale is right up your alley.
Jace and Lia are drawn to each other, they don't know why as everything else around them crumbles and falls apart what they have continues to grow stronger and try as Jace might to break that bond the pull is to strong and he finally gives in cementing what was written long ago. Their destiny's, there is something they are both meant to fulfill and no matter what it will play out how depends on them but either way what was written long ago will come to be.
Battle between good and evil is within just about every page of the book, Jace is a hybrid born of a human and a nephalim but he is not like the others, he is different, his soul and that of Lia's are stronger and united they are just about unbreakable, or are they.
I like how the book takes you through Jace's death and transformation into this hybrid that he is, a supposed soulless creature that feeds off the souls of others if he chooses and the battle he goes through every day to contain that evil side of him. How at first he struggles to understand what he is and what he has become. And how Lia is in a way thrown into his world not knowing that there is something about her that draws her to Jace and Jace to her. This pull, this cord that keeps them together also tears apart her own real world and as she battles to understand and to accept she faces great loss.
There are some great side story lines in here in regards to Jace's life growing up, his father, his mother and Lia and her sister Cassie. As well as the life of the "Watchers" and what their purpose is on earth. Who they are and why they are there. And then of course there is always the bad guy the evil immortal Athanatos and his first born son Kyros and the female who always wants to be at the right hand of the bad guy Diane (or Diahnn as Athanatos calls her) she is a nasty one I tell you.
This was a great story from start to finish and it ends with the possibility of another book to follow (I personally hope there is another one) if you like YA Paranormal Romance then you need to hurry and get your copy of Soul Bound: Dark Soul
