Shadow Bound by Rachel Vincent

Kori Daniels is a shadow-walker, able to travel instantly from one shadow to another. After weeks of confinement for betraying her boss, she's ready to break free of the Tower syndicate for good. But Jake Tower has one final job for Kori, one chance to secure freedom for herself and her sister, Kenley, even if it means taking it from someone else.…
The job? Recruit Ian Holt—or kill him.
Ian's ability to manipulate the dark has drawn interest from every syndicate in the world, most notably an invitation from Jake Tower. Though he has no interest in organized crime, Ian accepts the invite, because he's on a mission of his own. Ian has come to kill Tower's top Binder: Kori's little sister.
Amid the tangle of lies, an unexpected thread of truth connecting Ian and Kori comes to light. But with opposing goals, they'll have to choose between love and liberty….
So, it is my day off after nine days working straight with no over time, and while the blog has been all but silent on my part  I haven't been away from books. In fact I read two new books I purchased and several re-reads. So thankfully I have plenty of material to write on and hopefully catch up with.
The hardest part has been not having my own computer, engaged to a man who plays multiple games on the PC, it is rare that I get a moment to clack away about my thoughts.

So, the big surprise that came my way was found as I eagerly ripped open this month's book club selections and found pulled out the first book. Shadow Bound, a book I have been searching for since learning of the release date. I was even more excited to see that this book featured my favorite character Kori. I love that spunky kicking butt gal.

I think the best part of this book was that unlike any other love story, love didn't make you weak or stupid, in fact I would say that in this book the character's actually became stronger people while in love.

Kori was my favorite from the get go, and to learn that after she was forced to help Liv and Cam in the last book she was punished so severely it made me want to jump into the pages and throttle these so called friends who abandoned her.

I love the way the author describes shadows to a shadow walker, she really brought them to life and made me think twice about the dark which haunts my fears.

I am eagerly awaiting the next installment as more characters were introduced and given a back line and relationships grew. This is a book full of the steamy romance to fog the glasses as you turn the page, heart pounding action that leaves you on the edge of your seat and a love worth fighting for that is the things dreams are made of.

Favorite Character:
Kori, for always being there for her sister, for doing what needs done and saving face. She is a woman I would be proud to have my future kids look up to, even if foul language was her prime language. :)

5 Ravens!
