Product Description

Blood Bound is the bestselling Scottish urban fantasy novel that combines a breakneck plotline with flawed characters and a wicked sense of humour. "It's a read that grips you from the beginning, and keeps you enthralled until the very end." – Ashley, Fae Books

19-year-old twin demon trackers Shaun and Sarah Gallows are used to running into trouble—mostly the kind with fangs—but while Sarah embraces her powers to their fullest extent, trusting her instincts implicitly, Shaun distances himself from his abilities and can do little more than despair at his sister’s reckless nature and idly back her up.

When they come across 17-year-old Melissa Carling, a demon tracker who’s been torturing innocent super-naturals, they know they have to stop her. Sarah is desperate to punish Melissa for what she’s been doing but Shaun’s instant attraction to the girl points to a soul-mate bond stronger than anything he’s ever had to fight before…

Praise for Blood Bound:

"My first thought on closing the novel was that this was a book the CW should pick" – Rabid Readers Reviews

"Sharon Stevenson has a hit on her hands and has set a high bar for herself with “Blood Bound!”" – Dianne Bylo, Reader’s Favourites

***Be warned this book is New Adult Modern Fantasy, not YA. It is not suitable for less mature readers as it contains profanity & sexual references.

I received an e-book copy of this book from the author through an internet giveaway and the following is my honest opinion. Please note, the author has used British English in the writing which will reflect in the spelling of certain words and terminology being used.

While the author warns readers her book that despite the age of her two main characters [their 17 years old], twins Shaun and Sarah Gallows, is that a not YA novel; I feel it might qualify as still being appropriate for the upper range for a NA [New Adult] novel.

These twins, although they’re demon trackers, a job they’re paid to do by the village by their council, they’re different as night and day. While Shaun wants to forget about the powers he has, his sister Sarah embraces them fully.

This difference comes into play when they’re confronted with another demon tracker their age, Melissa Carling, who’s abusing her powers by going after those with super-natural powers who have done nothing wrong. Sarah wants to give her what’s coming to her, but, Shaun become infatuated with her the moment he sees her in a way he has never done before with a girl his age.

If you’re into fantasy and its creature, than this book should please you as it has: demons, fairies, vampires, werewolves and for good measure, witches.

The bad thing about being a Book Reviewer is not really being able to have the luxury to continue reading the next book in the series once you’ve found one which has piqued your interest. This is why, I’m happy to give Ms. Stevenson 5 STARS for the first volume of her Gallows novel series of books.

I read this book from 4/12 – 4/13/15 but due to personal issues I am only posting my review here now.
4.0 out of 5 stars A different take on demon trackers and vampires 7 June 2017

'Blood Bound' was full of action, humor, romance and an array of beings. The storyline was intriguing. I liked the way it played out, but I was left with a few questions. The characters are quite an assortment of personalities. Sarah is a headstrong, bad-ass with a sarcastic attitude. I love sarcasm. So it fit her personality quite well. Shaun was the complete opposite of his twin, Sarah. He's more reserved, hesitates when faced with his so called destiny and he also has a sarcastic side. Dev and Ray are best friends whom are so different from each other that it makes sense how well they mesh, to a point. I look forward to reading more of 'The Gallows Series'. A great add to your tbr list.

4.0 out of 5 stars however I did enjoy this book 10 June 2016

This is not your average YA book as the author has warned her readers, however I did enjoy this book. The twins are as different as day and night with one wishing they could forget their powers and one fully embracing theirs. This story is told from their perspective which I found interesting. If you are looking for a supernatural read then you need to read this book. You get plenty of supernatural creatures fairies, demons, werewolves, vampires and witches.
4.0 out of 5 stars Twin Demon Hunters 19 June 2016

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book I've read by this author and overall I found it to be an enjoyable read, enough so that I look forward to reading more in the series. At first I felt like I had missed something - that I was supposed to know things about the various characters because they weren't introduced in a way that marked that it was their first appearance in the book. Once I got more familiar with the author's writing style things flowed better for me.

While the main characters are in their late teens, I wouldn't classify this book as a YA read. The story moved at a good pace following the day to day lives of 19 year old twins, Sarah and Shaun. Who happen to be demon trackers.

I didn't care for some of the name-calling that Sarah directed towards her twin and didn't understand why she put up with much of the bad behavior of her two male friends; Dev being an annoyance and irritant. He's supposed to be best friends with Sarah and Ray but his behavior says otherwise in my opinion.

Add in the Council, secrets, demons, vampires and witches and things heat up quickly! Ben's part in the story got very interesting and I can't wait to find out where things lead...

3.0 out of 5 stars Left me intrigued to see where the series goes next!! 27 May 2013

My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it!

I liked this story and especially both characters Shaun and Sarah. I'm not sure yet what caused it, but I was confused on several occasions and still have many questions that I'm hoping the 2nd book will clear up. This story is interesting, but I had no trouble when I needed a break putting it down. I usually get this though with the first book in a series. I know building a new world takes time. I'm looking forward to seeing where this series might lead since there is a lot of intriguing possibilities.
