Kaitlyn Sherrad was out on her own from the protective shield of her parents. She wants to experience life all the while searching for her uncle that had disappeared right before she was born. Kaitlyn will be distracted when she meets Zach Ravenscroft who was a casino owner. There will be an instant attraction that will consume the couple but there will also be a danger that lurks in Kaitlyn’s shadow.
Bound by Blood is the second and final book to the series Bound by Amanda Ashley. I thought this was a good book to read. I liked that Amanda Ashley wrote about Elena and Drake’s daughter who was a little different. Kaitlyn’s character was a half breed which was half human and half vampire. I liked that she was different than the average vampire as it gave the story something more than just a vampire book. I liked Kaitlyn. She was strong willed, a little spoiled but was a good woman. Zach might be a player but he certainly didn’t act like it especially when he saw Kaitlyn. Now Zach is a vampire but he is also a little different type of vampire. His kind is called the Others. He is able to make a vampire. For Drake’s kind the vampires are born.
There was without a doubt a villain which was one of the wives of Drake’s father. She wanted revenge and was after Kaitlyn to get that revenge.
Towards the end there will be a surprise that involved Kaitlyn’s family. The situation would have been very sad if the tragedy occurred, but Amanda Ashley made sure that a happy ending happened.
Elena knew that she needed to leave before her uncle took his advances any further. She will escape to the broken down castle which was abandoned though she will find out that is not exactly true.
Drake lived in the abandoned castle all alone until he finds a woman seeking shelter. He will let her live there to protect her from her uncle, but he will find that there are other things that will become a problem with her being there.
Bound by Night is the first book to the series Bound by Amanda Ashley. I liked the book, it was a book that went by fast for me. I felt that in the beginning of the book the story resembled Beauty and the Beast, which I liked. So vampire books are all very different and I like when author’s give the vampires a little something different than the classic myths. Well most of the facts about these vampires were from the classics but there were a couple differences. One difference was that taking blood didn’t need to be done everyday or in their case every night.
Elena’s character was for the most part scared and a little weak but that was only till she found the courage to get out of a bad situation. She is resilient but in the world that she will be thrown into she wouldn’t be able to handle everything that comes her way. Drake’s character was a vampire that didn’t want to follow in his father’s path. He didn’t like the ways of the old. I liked that about Drake and loved that he wanted to be with Elena more than anything though there will be plenty of ways that will make it difficult.
I am reading the second and final book to the series next which will be with Elena and Drake’s daughter.
