Bound by Night by Larissa Ione

Bound by Night by Larissa Ione
2013, Pocket Books
Series: Book 1 of The Moonbound Clan Vampires


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.

The Good: This was my first full length Larissa Ione novel, and wow. She's just fantastic. Vampires get a whole new "out in the world" history in Bound by Night and I thought it was a very interesting take. Vampires are slaves to humans, unless they are in hiding. Very cool. Nicole was a great character with a solid reason behind her feelings towards vampires. I loved her scientific mindset and how that mixed with the medical breakthroughs using vampire physiology. I'm very eager for the next book in the series.

The Bad: Nothing at all.
