Review:Shadow Bound (ADULT)

This book is for ADULTS.
I am only publishing this review on this blog because I love this author and want to help spread how awesome this book is to my adult readers.

Shadow Bound (Unbound #2)
If you live in the dark long enough, you begin to forget the light... 

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....


My Thoughts:

Let me state the fact that I've only read half of Blood Bound(Book #1 in the series) so I can easily vouch for the fact that this book can be read as a standalone novel.You might get a little confused but you can easily enjoy this novel even if you haven't read book 1.

For those people who've read Book #1 Cam and Liv aren't primary characters in this book but that doesn't mean that they aren't there.They have a role to play.

Let's talk characters

This woman is freakishly strong.MENTALLY. All those people who love reading books with strong female characters that don't whine PICK THIS BOOK UP NOW!She might not be freakishly strong but she can fight and she's smart.She's also willing to go to any lengths to take care of her family.A trait I really admire.Sometimes she came off as a little to hard but I'm willing to let it slide because she's been through a lot.
She reminds me  of Angelina Jolie in all those action films..

While Kori comes off as the tough guy  girl. Ian comes off as the sensitive guy with a tough side.He compliments Kori so completely.I hate to draw comparisons but Ian and Kori are like an older Katniss and Peeta (Peeta being more mean and a little edgier).I really liked him and I loved the fact that we could get a peak into what he was thinking.

Let's talk about the Story
Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen Rachel Vincent would throw a curve-ball and change the game.This book is told from both Ian's and Kori's point of view.It took a little bit of time to get used to this but it wasn't very confusing.
I can easily give this book a 5 but due to a few things,
  • The violence and the amount of physical abuse Kori went through really upset me.[Which is exactly why this book is adult]
  • Kori's sister really annoyed me.
  • The ending.SPOILER  wanted her to kill you know the person she didn't kill in the end.That is one decision I know will bite them in the ass Spoiler ends

Overall,this was a great book by Rachel Vincent and I cannot wait to read more by her! 

My Rating:


Rachel Vincent doesn't disappoint!


  1. I love Rachel Vincent!!! I love her My Soul to take series and I cant wait to read her other series on my free time.

    Thanks for spreading the word =D

  2. I am 30 years old (well, I will be on Sunday) but I rarely, as in almost never, read adult books. I don't know why, I just fall into YA novels so much better. Rachel Vincent is one of the authors that I will make an exception with. I love her so much. Her writing is amazing. I think I may just have to head off into the world of adult for at least a series. I don't think I will be disappointed!

  3. This sounds like a fantastic read and i am quite suprised by the cover, that gives this book a Young Adult feel to it. I really enjoyed reading your review & regardless of spoilers i am definately going to take a look at this author whom i have not herd of up until now. It certainly sounds like something a bit different within adult fiction.
