Synopsis

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Larissa Ione sets the night on fire with a thrilling new novel of irresistible hungers and immortal enemies in a world as sensual and dark as her Demonica series …

THE FUTURE OF HIS TRIBE
Leader of the vampire clan MoonBound, Hunter will do what he must to save his people from extinction – or worse, a torturous eternity as vampire slaves and subjects of human experimentation. To keep his enemies at bay, he has agreed to mate a rival clan leader’s daughter in return for peace between the clans and an ally in the looming war with the humans.

THE LOVER OF HIS SOUL
But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests. Then he must resist the searing passions of the gorgeous vampire warrior he despises but is bound to mate. Will Hunter stay true to his word? Or will he risk everything for the woman he really loves: the vampire seductress’s identical twin sister?

My Review

Chained By Night is the second book in the new series by this author. This series is about a vampire clan, that live in a time where their true natures have been revealed to humans, and they are considered the level of slaves, no rights and are constantly being hunted by humans. Hunter is the leader of the Moonbound Clan, his ways are far different from other vampire clans. When one of his own is kidnapped, he agrees to mate with the clan leaders daughter, in order to save another of his clan. His intended mate, Rasha, is brutal just like the rest of her clan. But her sister Aylin, is her total opposite. Aylin. Aylin and Rasha are twins, but that is where their similarities end. Aylin was born with a defect, a crooked hip bone, so she has a limp and she is treated like a outcast in her own clan. She has never been fully accepted by anyone. The plan is for her to accompany her sister, and help her prepare for the mating ceremony within a month’s time. But then she meets Hunter, a vampire she is drawn to, he is so different from others she has known. He cares for his clan, treats everyone with respect, and protects. There is a sizzling attraction between them, but it is forbidden. But then Hunter and Aylin are forced to work together, are soon Hunter will have to make a difficult choice..his clan or Aylin?

Chained by Night was simply thrilling, and what a wild ride this one turned out to be. I just couldn’t get enough, and stayed up most of the night reading it. It is rare, to have a book keep me up at night, but this one did. Every time I get a chance to read this author, I am always amazed by Ione’s talent in weaving together stories that pull you in like magnets. I just couldn’t get enough of this one. Everything about this book was amazing. There was so much depth and substance to this story, and the characters alone would be enough to get me to read this. They were so compelling and full of complexities you didn’t expect. Hunter is one powerful alpha male, he is a protector, and has honor, unlike most of the other clan leaders. He is mating a woman he hates to save a member of his clan, and in this story we see how he deals with inner conflicts with Aylin, who is his match in every way. Aylin is desperate to escape her fate of being mated with a brutal leader, who has a harem of women. But she has no idea how, when she has a limp and even though she can fight, she is no match for her sister. Aylin is such a strong heroine…my heart just went out to her. Despite how difficult her life is, she still dreams of being happy somewhere, and despite the fact that she is isolated, she knows how to fight but in different ways and she has the courage of a lion. I love how she is willing to help those she cares about no matter the cost to her. I admired her character through and through.

The story itself was solid and full of depth and character…it has quite a bit going for it. There is much that goes on in this story I don’t want to spoil for ya, but it was one of the most phenomenal books I have ever had the pleasure to read. There is quite a conflict for this pair to overcome, and it really had me at the edge of my seat for the whole way through…and it was quite a intense ride. Who needs cardio to get your heart rate up when you can read Chained by Night right?

Overall a story that will completely suck you in from the beginning, exciting plot, intense characters, dangerous villains, complex scenarios, intricately written, with thrilling paranormal elements…and best of all a romance to win your heart and take your breath!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
