Bound by Darkness

Bound By Darkness (Guardians of Eternity, #8)Bound By Darkness by Alexandra Ivy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 11th book in the Guardians of Eternity series. This is Jaelyn and Ariyal's story. Jaelyn is a vampire assassin known as a Hunter. Hunter's are revered and feared by the rest of their race. They live solitary lives, and with little luxury.

Ariyal is the prince of the Sylvermyst, who pledged to serve the demon Morgana le Fey, instead of being banished behind the veil with their master the Dark Lord. They suffered terribly in her hands, and with her death, the Sylvermyst are divided.

With the plot of the children that is continued from the last full-length book, we find ourselves once again racing against time along with the main characters, as those who plot to resurrect the Dark Lord move forth with their plans.

Jaelyn is put on assignment from the Commission, a powerful group of oracles that no demon race messes with. And what is her assignment? Being close to Ariyal.

I had a few problems with this story overall, mainly watching Jaelyn and Ariyal fight against their attraction for each other. It seemed to drag on a bit. But once they stopped fighting it, it was wonderfully hot.

Other than that, jumping between Tearloch and Ariyal/Jaelyn was a bit wearying. I just wanted to stay with the two main characters, and Ms. Ivy kept taking us back to Tearloch. Other than that, the book was great. Passion, action, and a wonderful little gargoyle named Levet, whom any Alexandra Ivy reader will tell you they've fallen in love with.

If you're a Guardians of Eternity fan, don't miss this book, and if you've never read the Guardians of Eternity, it's a great series that will keep you majorly entertained.
