THE FUTURE OF HIS TRIBE
Leader of the vampire clan MoonBound, Hunter will do what he must to save his people from extinction - or worse, a torturous eternity as vampire slaves and subjects of human experimentation. To keep his enemies at bay, he has agreed to mate a rival clan leader's daughter in return for peace between the clans and an ally in the looming war with the humans.
THE LOVER OF HIS SOUL
But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests. Then he must resist the searing passions of the gorgeous vampire warrior he despises but is bound to mate. Will Hunter stay true to his word? Or will he risk everything for the woman he really loves: the vampire seductress's identical twin sister?
I really liked Chained by Night. Chained by Night is a hot, steamy, and action packed paranormal romance. It was everything I expected in a Larissa Ione novel. If you have not read Bound by Night the first book in the Moonbound Clan series then you probably want to stop here because there will be some spoilers.
Chained by Night is the story of Hunter, the Moonbound chief, he is first introduced in Bound by Night. In Bound by Night to save his clan he makes a pact with a rival clan to marry the eldest daughter. Chained by Night picks up right there with the eldest daughter and her twin sister making the trek to Moonbound Clan lands for the mating rituals. Hunter can’t stand Rasha because she is a backstabbing conniving bitch. The whole clan in fact can’t stand Hunter’s intended mate. It comes as a shock when Hunter starts warming up to her twin sister Aylin, who is nothing like her sister. Aylin has always been treated like second class citizen because she was born with a deformity. One sister was raised a warrior and it shows and the other was raised like a piece of trash but luckily it doesn’t show.
I know I have said it before but what I really really like about the Moonbound Clan novels it the world building. The world in these are so rich with history and customs. The combination of vampires in a modern world with Native American folklore is fascinating. I really liked the demon world that is introduced in this novel. In this world, a Native American Chief made a deal with a demon and thus the Vampire race was born. Only chiefs and mated vampires know is that there was a price for the power. All mated vampires must complete a set of trials in the demon world or the demon will take the first born.
I wasn’t surprised when the spoiled declines and Aylin goes in place. I liked the strength of Aylin and the tenderness that Hunter shows while they are fighting for their lives in the demon realm. I liked the love story of Aylin and Hunter. Aylin’s clan practices the old ways and Hunter has moved his clan into the modern era. What is there not to like about a good looking vampire that can quote Monty Python and plays Call of Duty. Most of all, I liked Chained by Night because it was an on the edge of my seat, so hot it sizzles love story. I would say this book is an action adventure story for women who like vampire romance. I am giving it four stars because it definitely left on a nice cloud of happy.
