Synopsis: 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?
Series: MoonBound Clan Vampire
Review: I was looking forward to reading CHAINED BY NIGHT after reading BOUND BY NIGHT, the first in the MoonBound Clan Vampire series, and I wasn’t disappointed. I was excited to read Hunter’s story and see the evolution of the complex mythology the author has painstakingly created. Hunter agreed to take Rasha, the heir to the ShadowSpawn clan, as his mate after the events in BOUND BY NIGHT. Rasha and her twin sister, Aylin, come to MoonBound but are attacked on the way. Hunter first mistakes Aylin for Rasha when they’re rescued, but then it becomes easy to tell them apart. Aylin is kind, humble, and been horribly abused by her clan while Rasha is cruel, rude, and sadistic. Hunter finds himself drawn to Aylin, even with his promised betrothal and mating upcoming. When a demon requires Hunter to go through a quest with his mate in order to save his first born child, Rasha refuses, but Aylin steps up and takes her place. CHAINED BY NIGHT is a solid novel which adds a lot to the world of the MoonBound Clan Vampire series. I enjoyed the characters, especially Aylin, who turned out to be so much more than anyone ever thought. I am looking forward to delving deeper into this world in the future.
