Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent REVIEW

Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent (Unbound #1)

library copy

Synopsis from Goodreads
Bound by blood, condemned by fate

As a bloodtracker, Liv is extremely powerful. And in a world where power is a commodity that can get you killed, Liv's learnt to survive by her own rules.

Rule number one? Trust no one.

But when a friend's daughter goes missing, Liv is bound by a potent magical oath. She can't rest until the child is safe.
And that means trusting her dangerous ex, Cam.

A sinister prophecy tells that she and Cam will be the death of each other, yet Liv's tired of being a slave to destiny. She's ready to play the forces controlling her world at their own game. 

No matter what the cost.

Pretty intense and gritty, this book will certainly make all the fans of Rachel's Shifters series happy. In fact, Cam reminded me of Marc because of his sheer stubbornness and inability to let go. *grinning*

Great characters and world-building, although I was certainly more interested in the bad guy Ruben Cavazos and the intricate system of binding to the clan which allowed you to do only certain things and work your way around the things you weren't allowed to say or do. I thought it was awesome.

Otherwise Olivia is a bit too tough in her relationship with Ruben, and Cam is a bit too idealistic. I wouldn't say anything else, because there are more than enough reviews around which go into all the details.

Overall, an excellent read.

Recommended for the fans of Shifters , Allie Beckstrom and Victoria Nelson series.

Практически ощущения остались такие же хорошие как и от прочтения серии Оборотни той же писательницы. Сильные герои, превосходное построение мира.

Кам ну прямо списан с Марка! Та же самая упёртость как у бульдога, которые не желает расцепить зубы и упустить свою добычу.

Оливия что-то ну прямо очень крутая. Фраза "не отступать и не сдаваться" у неё доведена до идиотства. 

Меня гораздо больше заинтересовал криминальный босс Лив - Рубен Кавазос, и сама система кланов, и магической привязанности к ним, которая диктует, что можно говорить и делать, чтобы оставаться лояльными клану, а если не хочется, то какими обходными путями ему можно пойти поперёк...

Концовка с небольшим клиффхэнгером, но жить можно. Рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
