ARC Review: Bound by Night by Larissa Ione

Bound by Night 
by Larissa Ione
Release Date: September 24th 2013 by Pocket Books
Series: MoonBound Clan Vampire #1
Pages: 400
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

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.

My Review:

*ARC provided by Netgalley*
This was definitely a refreshing idea to the typical vampire novels out there. I was captivated by the whole story and thought it was pretty good. Bound by Night starts of with the idea of humans owning vampire as slaves. The Martins are a powerful family whose power ends up killing a lot of vampires, and owning others as slaves. Vampire families get separated and this results to rebellions between the vampires and humans. Nicole Martin is only eight years old when her family is killed by these rebellions and this turns out in sending her away to Paris while she gets ready to become the next CEO of her family's company. Years pass and she comes back only to discover that her family's company has been doing a lot of secretive experiments to vampires that were illegal. She thinks she has the support of her brother, but that changes when the vampire that she is supposed to hate kidnaps her and her brother doesn't do anything to get her back. Nicole realizes just how much her family really cares for her, but discovering that what she thought to believe is not true will then notice how much she is willing to give up to be with those that truly care for her. 

On the other hand, Riker is constantly reminded of his past. When he recognizes Nicole, he is full of anger and wants to do to the right thing, avenge his mate's death. But due to a series of events, and the more time they spend together will they realize just how the two need each other in order to save those they love in order to be together in the end. Apart from being an amazing story, Bound by Night is full of emotions, and mystery that will keep you wanting for more. There were a few things that I would have liked to see, but overall the story was great. The plot was very well-written that made the story that much more enjoyable. I admire Nicole's personality and courage, she is willing to make amends for what her family did to the vampires. While Riker seems like a tormented soul, he is caring and wants to save those that he loves no matter the cost. Both characters were great and I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. I'm sure it's going to be awesome. :)
