Bound by Night by Larissa Ione


Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .

A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever.

OMGoodness!  I loved this book!  I found it to be so much better for me than the Demonica Series by Ms. Ione. 


I think Nicole is a great character.  Traumatized by vampires at a young age, she becomes a strong woman who is working through her fears and the truths that were hidden from her for way too long. 

Rikker is struggling with his anger, guilt, and regret.  But boy, does this wounded vampire sound sexy.  When he isn’t burdened with those things, he is a sweet and gentle man that you can’t help but love. 

I think though that Myne is my favorite character, and I really want to learn more about him.  I really liked that he was respectful of Rikker’s claim on Nicole, and how he helped Nicole transition. 

Everything Else

I really liked this twist to the vampire myth.  Steeped in Native American lore, it was great to get a new tale from a genre that keeps getting the same old stuff. 

I also loved the twist and turns of this novel!  Some were not expected, while some were.  But all of it made for a great story. 

I think this story is in the near future, but I’m sure that it isn’t too far from the present.  I liked that it wasn’t in the “here and now” kind of story.  It just made it more believable. 

I wished that there had been more time, more chapters, because I DID NOT want this book to end. 


Overall, this is a great book, and I can’t wait to read the next one.  I highly recommend.
