Bound by Night (MoonBound Clan Vampire, #1) - Larissa Ione Bound by Night was an excellent read, definitely engaging and a wonderful start to what is obviously another fantastic new series by Larissa Ione. There isn't anything to dislike about this novel. The world building is excellent. Although dealing with the often written about vampires, the author tackles it in a totally unusual way. The addition of north american folklore and legends as an element to explain the existence of vampires is a nice touch. There is also science based reasons for vampirism, as well as social injustices, slavery and unethical experimental methods. Definitely a very different twist. The characters are fully fleshed out and very likable. Both Nicole and Riker's personal demons are handled in such a way that it doesn't appear overly dramatic. They simply flow with the plot. Secondary characters like Hunter, Myne, Katina, Grant and Lucy are fascinating as well. Ms. Ione excels in this, her characters are all memorable that you start wishing the next installment has already been printed. Obviously, this series will not be an exception. The pacing is just right with fast and bloody action scenes and witty and rapier sharp dialogues. The eroticism associated with vampires and sex is definitely felt in each written word. Riker and Nicole's heated encounters must definitely be read with the AC at full blast. Overall, a truly entertaining read, looking forward to the next book.*The ARC for this book was provided by the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review*
