Rating: 4.5 stars
Sunny McDonald and her vampire boyfriend, Magnus, are on the run-accused of treason and wanted alive…or undead. And her twin is the slayer sent to track them down.
Rayne would do anything to save her twin sister, Sunny, from the Vampire Consortium dictator who wants her dead. Instead, she’s been commissioned by Slayer Inc. to find Sunny and Magnus and deliver them to the Consortium…which Rayne knows means certain death. She also knows that if she and her boyfriend, Jareth, disobey orders, they are signing not only their own death warrants, but also those of every vampire in the Blood Coven.
As a rival slayer with a personal vendetta moves in, Rayne and Jareth must do something to stop her. So they embark on their most dangerous journey yet, deep beneath the streets of New York City and through the Gates of the Underworld. But when a greedy god demands the ultimate sacrifice, will Rayne be forced to choose between her sister…and the vampire she loves?
Soul Bound by Mari Mancusi was another great installment in the Blood Coven series! Intense and fast paced, this was a book was kept me up late into the night reading.
I loved the plot of this one. While a bit of the beginning got a bit too angsty for me, the rest of the book was marvelous. Mari Mancusi‘s path to the underworld and actually her underworld herself were so unique – Mari Mancusi has taken a lot of liberties with the typical mythology to craft this neat, really cool version of Hell.
The ending is Soul Bound is an absolute killer! I am counting down the days until Blood Forever is released as I am desperate to see what is going to happen next!
Rayne is a character who really had grown on me throughout this series. In the first few books I can barely stand her and now she is one of my favorite characters of the book. She is SO funny – the pages are just dripping with humor.
Soul Bound was probably my favorite book in the series yet. Each book just gets better and bet, and Soul Bound was an awesome read. I love it and here begins my count down til Blood Forever‘s release.
