I read a lot of paranormal/fantasy books, so this is a genre I’m familiar with. I’d just finished another book of Laura Daleo’s and really enjoyed it (“The Vow” – check it out), so I was curious to see how she would deliver in this one, “Bound by Blood”. Ms. Daleo is unarguably a very talented writer, but more than that she genuinely impressed me with her thorough world-building and sheer creativeness and inventiveness on many levels. All too often I read works that feel clearly derivative of other books, and although I appreciate literary influences (as is felt here as well), when something this original comes along it is a refreshing change of pace from the norm! After some time of getting acclimated to the storyline, (this is a continuation of an earlier book) I was definitely hooked. Some of the writing was downright lyrical in the simple elegance of the prose, and other times I was nearly breathless from the intensity and violent passion. Love watching the dynamic with Beth and Amon develop, and feel her struggle with Philippe. I finished in just a few sittings, and went through so many highs and lows, it felt like a rollercoaster. I enjoyed the ending and now I feel like I really need to read “Immortal Kiss” so that I can get all the backstory!! Recommend for fans of new-adult paranormal romance.

JUST FOR FUN!
Hollywood and literary vampires typically deviate from folklore vampires. For example, Hollywood vampires are typically pale, aristocratic, very old, need their native soil, are supernaturally beautiful, and usually need to be bitten to become a vampire. In contrast, folklore vampires (before Bram Stoker) are usually peasants, recently dead, initially appear as shapeless “bags of blood,” do not need their native soil, and are often cremated with or without being staked.
