“The Dark Bond” is book two in Leia Stone’s Vampire Hunter Society series. This continues on from where Book one The Dark Bite ends and ends on a cliffhanger.
If you thought Book one was addictive well you are in for a ride with this one.
Aspen is struggling with the knowledge of her heritage and the Guild, whilst also fighting the feelings while still feeding Luka who happens to be engaged. With no home or money she and Liv must go to Magic City as Luka’s “feeders” whilst he goes through the trials to become King of the Vampires.
I really enjoyed the character and story development in this book. Seeing characters from the Wolf Girl series is an absolute pleasure and treat. (Not going to say who, you are just going to have to read it to see.)
Although I do sympathy to what Aspen is going through I still found her character to be quite selfish and bitchy. Now I’m not saying I don’t like Aspen’s character cause that’s not what I’m saying, it’s just I found her irritating and frustrating to read at times. She is going through hell yes, which is why I am sympathetic to her, but she isn’t the only one going through a rough time. Other people/species are having a rougher time and the decisions they make affect a lot more than themselves unlike Aspen. But there are definitely times during the book that she shows some real growth.
I read this book in one sitting and it took me two days to sit down and write this review, as my emotions and mentality were not on par to sit and write it and have it make sense. If you are looking for a nail biting edge of your seat read, with action, suspense, drama, angst and crushes than this book is for you. If you are looking for rainbows, unicorns and lollipops I recommend the kids section in the library lol.
I will say this, if you are not a fan of cliffhangers, than sorry but this one is going to leave you reeling. I am stressing and worrying over what is going to take place in book three, but at the same time totally excited and can’t wait.
Luka is in a battle for the throne and also figuring out his new engagement to Cassara. Aspen feels betrayed by him but having no other options for protection from Maz, she and Liv follow him to Vampire City.
Lots of questions are answered in this book, the mystery of their heritage being the main one. We also cameos from Demi, Sage and the gang which I enjoyed.
I enjoyed this book a lot more than the first one. Well into the story arc, I felt more engaged and taken up with seeing Aspen come out on top instead of always being one step behind.
I can't wait to get my hands on the last book to this series.
Phew! Can't wait for the next book...damn! Cliff hanger! Excellent read...full of excitement, twists and turns...full of girl power too! Hope the next book is available to read soon?🙏Brilliant writing and awesome story line..fabulous characters...the whole package really...I highly recommend this series!
What an incredible ending….. sadly now I have to wait for the next book, please Leia don’t take too long. I’m so in love with the sexy and hot Luka, him and Aspen are just absolutely meant to be together. ❤️❤️❤️
This is one of those books you don’t put down when you mean to read for 15 minutes before bed, and then next thing you know it’s 4am! Loved it! The characters had me laughing and crying all at once and I can’t wait for the next roller coaster of emotions in the next book!
