Blurb: 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?
Review: I found myself liking the characters and premise of the book. The first because of the "what lies beneath" (or behind) their motivations factor and a few twists and turns. The second because of the spin on the vampire legend - very intriguing.
Having said that, for now I find myself preferring what I have read of Ms. Ione's Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series. The reason for this is that I find myself questioning some of the elements presented (one of which is how vampires can become enslaved to humans). This book is only the second in the series, so there might either have been a hint of an explanation in the first book (which I have not, as yet, read) or there might be a gradual explanation in future books.
Good read with a good pace and characters, but not entirely satisfactory for me.
