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 have to say I LOVE this cover. Even more after I read the book. I met Larissa Ione at RT in New Orleans this past year. She was on a panel with an author I went to see and she was hilarious and I had to put her on my TBR list. Her Demonica series is wildly popular but I still haven’t read it yet.
Her publisher sent me Bound by Night (the first book) and it was really good. Then they sent me Chained by Night which was FANTASTIC. Even better than the first. Each book follows different characters in The Moonbound Clan Vampires series. These are no sparkly vampires. Ione actually has a different and refreshing take on Vampires all together. They are descended from twelve tribes, I’m leaving it at that because I don’t want to get spoilery but wow. This series is awesome.
Aylin is an amazing character, she is at the bottom of her clan and her twin sister is at the top. Rasha is the one that Hunter is to marry but she isn’t the one he wants. Ione is amazing. The characterization – wow, the sex – I am soooo picky about this – there HAS to be build up and it was done so amazingly. I can’t wait to pick up any and EVERY book Larissa Ione writes! Pick up this series!
“Ione’s second MoonBound Vampires paranormal deftly uses a mixture of complex rivalries, primal violence, and sex to portray a society in which frequent vampire enslavement provokes a civil-rights dispute…Ione’s characters are relatable and sympathetic both because of and despite their id-drenched setting, and Ione’s flavor of vampirism produces a fascinating mixture of authoritarianism, atavism, and compassionate humanity that works on multiple levels.”
—Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW August 25th
“Ione has created a fascinating vampire world steeped in Native American traditions and lore and developed a path to happiness for Hunter and Aylin that is fraught with potent and poignant internal and external conflicts. The action-packed plot and creative worldbuilding keep us enthralled; the romance and sexual tension keep us emotionally invested.”
—Kirkus Reviews August 28th online, Sept. 15th print
“Major talent Ione is back with the second installment in her gritty new MoonBound Clan Vampire series, where vampires live under the threat of enslavement and torture by humans. Ione’s vampire world is made up of sometimes warring clans who fight against each other as well as humans. Uniting the clans may be the vampires’ best hope for survival in the upcoming war with humans. With so much at stake, these excellent character relationships are fraught with intense and conflicting emotions. Hang on tight, as this is one exciting and dangerous world!”
