Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way--no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.
Unbeatable in the ring, Rune exists in a brutal world of blood and bone and death. He's made his share of enemies both in and out of the arena, and his secrets run as deep and turbulent as his past. A dangerous loner who has survived by his fists and fangs, Rune has never allowed anyone to get too close to him...until Carys. But when the bodies buried in his past rise up to threaten his present, Rune must choose between betraying Carys's trust or putting her in the crosshairs of a battle neither of them can hope to win on their own.
REVIEW: Lara Adrian is one of my favorite PNR authors and one whose books I crave to read. Her Midnight Breed series is also one of my favorite because she has managed to maintain the same high quality in all her stories.
Bound To Darkness is Rune’s story and a story that I have waited long to read. We were in introduced to Rune a few books back, we only know of him to be a fighter, ruthless and incapable of losing a fight. He is strong, intelligent & extremely hot. His history is unknown to many and though we all knew there was more to him than just cage fighting, we didn’t know that his story would bring him face to face with an evil that is bringing chaos to the Breed.
Rune & Cary have been dating for a some time now and while their relationship keeps heating up, their chances to become more, is cooling off. Rune doesn’t feel he is enough or worthy of Carys’ love, therefore he has no intention on making things more than they are, he loves her and she loves him but Carys is getting to the point where she is ready for more.
Lara focus the first part of the book to Run & Carys love story, it brings us the ups and downs in their relationship and what their different social status does to them, while in the background the story slowly starts to take a turn. Rune’s background is unknown and that’s where Carys needs to get. She need Rune to open up to her in order for them to be able to move onto a different stage of their relationship. The turn their love story takes was unexpected and exciting.
I really enjoy how Rune’s past comes back to become a very dark and terrifying part of their present and possible future. I enjoyed how well the author manages to bring the passion and lust between these two characters and turn it into an action packed love story that doesn’t stop short of nail biting situations.
Lara Adrian always manages to write great love stories, not only emotional but action packed. I love every aspect of Rune’s story and how he manages to overcome a past that almost ended his life and a life with Carys. I also enjoyed how we get a glimpse into the life of the other characters we have come to love. I am looking forward to the next book. There is always something sexy and erotic in all Adrian’s books, making her one of top 5 paranormal authors.
