I finished this book, and that’s saying a lot when it comes to a book review that I’m doing on my blog. I get book offers all the time. I used to accept all of them but then I felt like I was doing a disservice to the author and the publisher by doing a piss pore job. So when Bound to Shadows showed up on my doorstep I vowed to read it. It sat and sat and finally I purchased it on my Kindle, then the reading began.
This books is a paranormal romance novel, also known in my world as sci-fi smut. Sex, intrigue and gore! Oh no, this is another embarrassing fact I’m admitting about myself, yes I know you know that I love science fiction but did you know that I like smut?
Riley is the books main character. She is part werewolf part vampire and all about getting it on with someone else even though she’s trying desperately to hold onto a relationship with the love of her life. While I was reading this book I didn’t realize that it was the 8th book in a series. I wish I had known so I could have started at the beginning. Except for the fact that I have a due date for the review (I’m sure it’s overdue).
Of course that deserves more explanation and I have a feeling a lot of the explanation was at the beginning of the series when the character development would have been longer. For the first third of the book I was trying to figure out who was whom and why were they important to Riley.
Keri Arthur seems to stick to the normal rules of vampires. The sun burns them so they are mostly only out at night, and I have no idea what sticks to werewolves but apparently they are addicted to the hot and heavy if you know what I mean.
Riley is like a policeman for the non-humans in that she takes care of humans and non-humans rights. She polices their problems and hatred for one another and solves murder cases. So really she’s more like a super detective. This book solves one heck of a murder mystery and a love triangle of her two halves. Each being in her craves someone else but in the end she makes the right choice.
I love everything vampires so I had to give this a try. I’m glad that I toughed out the first part trying to get to know each of the characters because from the middle on I couldn’t put the book down.
As Riley becomes absorbed in the grotesque human beheadings and a sketchy club owner/murder-suspect – all pieces of her latest case – she also finds herself tied up in a love triangle with an amber-eyed werewolf and a gorgeous vampire. Seduction meets determination as the stunning, part-vampire, part-werewolf protagonist uses her supernatural know-how to solve the multiple murder cases about to unfold. But she better hurry…since the killer has long since found her.
