Book SynopsisBy blood, by word, by magic…
Most can't touch the power. But Liv Warren is special— a paranormal tracker who follows the scent of blood.
Liv makes her own rules, and the most important one is trust no one.
But when her friend's daughter goes missing, Liv has no choice but to find the girl. Thanks to a childhood oath, Liv can't rest until the child is home safe. But that means trusting Cam Caballero, the former lover forbidden to her.
Bound by oath and lost in desire for a man she cannot have, Liv is racing to save the child from a dark criminal underworld where secrets, lies, trauma and danger lurk around every corner…every touch…every kiss.
And more blood will be spilled before it's over…
You know there are books that you anticipate and when you get them in your hand and start to read you know that it was well worth the wait. Once again to my personal delight author Rachel Vincent has delivered an excellent reading experience. The first book in her new Unbound adult series Blood Bound is fascinating journey to follow along with it's two main characters Olivia Warren and Cam Caballero. The story moves fast, has lots of details that allow us glimpses into past relationships and how they come together in the current timeline of what is happening with the characters. It is also gritty and realistically graphic at times. I found the premise of the book to be exceptionally well thought out, the world that the author has put together grips the reader's imagination and keeps you reading rapidly to see what comes next with each turn of the page. Most importantly you have a connection to not only Olivia and Cam but Anne, Kori and little Hadley. The villains of the piece are are evil and corrupt, truly despicable, and yet at the same time there is a spark of humanity that retains honor left in them that the author showcases in several scenes.
This is a book that cannot truly be explained well, it is a story that has to be read and one that you will not regret investing the time in once you start it. For a long time fan of the author getting to sit down and once again dive into something she crafted was a true treat, for a new reader the same applies.
Now if you want to get me something for my birthday in June, how about the second book Shadow Bound!
