Bound by Darkness- Alexandra Ivy

Desire is the deadliest weapon.
The Sylvermysts have a reputation as sinister cousins to the fey, and none are more mysterious than Ariyal and his tribe.
To save his people from banishment, he faces a new challenge: Jaelyn, an elite vampire warrior sent to capture him. By rights, he should kill her on sight. Yet he cannot bring himself to hurt her—or to resist her…
Jaelyn is stunningly beautiful, utterly lethal—and always alone. Until Ariyal. From their first encounter, she knows that what's between them is more dangerous than simple lust. And as they unite to thwart a terrifying prophecy that will mean the end of his clan and of the world they know, she will risk everything to fulfill her destiny by his side…
I just love this series, every book has been great and the story line never feels like it is repeating (and we all know when you have several books in a series it can be same story different characters) We met both lead characters in previous books and it was great for them to finally to have a book together. So I was pleased with the book but not with the cover and for those that know me, know I like my covers to at least look like what the author describes. Ok over the cover problem now, on to the story. Loved Ariyal, he is strong, sexy and hell bent on setting this right in his life now that he is free. He has a sensitive side that is surprising for what he has been through. Yum he is just sex on a stick with a sword!!
Jaelyn, well she is a tough one overall but when he starts to peel back the layers he finds a loving, sensitive woman who besides being a fierce warrior is also a needing, wanting female.  Denying each other does not last long once she realizes that she is stuck with him.  Oh and my favorite little gargoyle, Levet is in this book...Oh he is so cute and funny!
My Rating: 4.5     Wendy

  1. I love this series of books and am glad to see Ariyal and Jaelyn's story. And totally agree about Levet- so funny the way he annoys all the other males around him and befriends all the females.

    Thanks for the review!
