“Bound by Night is the first book in a brand new series by Larissa Ione. It takes an interesting and very unconventional twist to the vampire/human story.
Nicole Martin watched her family brutally murdered in a slave rebellion in her home. Now 20 years later she is given the reins to a company that thrives on the exploitation of vampires. Unhappy with many divisions of the company, Nicole sets in motion plans to dismantle controversial departments of her families business holdings. Many on the board are unhappy by this turn of events. Nicole finds herself framed for ordering 20 + vampires to be “inhumanly” destroyed(murdered).
Riker is a vampire and a member of the “wild” MoonBound Clan. Watching his mate die as a slave in the Martin family home has fueled his hatred for humans for years. When a situation with a rival vampire clan causes Riker to infiltrate the Martin home, he finds himself in a bit of a dilemma...to obtain his goal he must kidnap Nicole...when he'd rather just kill her.
Now enemies are face to face and soon discover that they aren't much different. They are both fighting for their lives and their very survival lay in each other's hands.
This is a great start to a new series.
Ione did what she does best...created totally new parallel environments with her dark and gritty world building...made great snarky and witty characters...fabulous secondary characters that you can't wait to uncover their stories... I am looking forward to reading more in what is sure to be a sexy and exciting new series.
