Review & Giveaway: Unbound (Spell Series #2) by Lola James
Toni went from being a doctor, to the lover of a god in an instant. Remembering who she was, she's now torn between her past self and her current love. Ben is stunned when Toni leaves and at the arrival of his long lost love, Catherine, but her arrival doesn't eradicate Toni from his mind. Unlikely allies will team up to get Toni back from the Lord of the Underworld, Hades, but it's not Hades they need to worry about.
“She knew I was a vampire.” I dropped my head as astonishment casted over Kevin’s face. “It is my fault she is with Hades, I’ll take that blame.” I swallowed the lump in my throat that formed around my next words. “Do it, take me this pain away from me!” Kevin pressed the stake hard to my chest, and I closed my eyes, preparing to die.
In a flash, Catherine tackled Kevin to the ground, knocking the stake out of his hands. Dawn screamed and I picked up the stake with the swiftest of movements and drove it through Catherine’s back. She turned to ash while still atop Kevin whose eyes widened in shock.
We looked at one another, both bewildered, in the moment before I offered my hand to help him from the floor. Dawn eased closer toward us. As Kevin brushed Catherine’s dust off him; then he picked up his stake, and returned it to his back pocket. Kevin stared at me for a long moment before he gave a nod. "For now, vampire."
This book is only $1.99 on Amazon.
In Unbound, we pick up in Toni's life where she realizes that she is really Antoinette and that she is Hades lover. I have to say I'm a little surprised. When I read the first book Bound to Remember, the cliffhanger at the end of that book left me thinking that Toni had become evil and didn't care about anything else. Not the case. Toni is the same sweet Toni we knew, but more confused about her love life than ever. All her old memories of her time with Hades and her life in Ancient Greece come rushing back. Old friends are enemies. More recent friends have hidden sides. The mysterious Joanna puts in an appearance....as well as a whole cast of the Greek Gods and Goddesses with all their bad behavior. Unbound has a lot of twists and turns. Will Toni be able to decide which of the three men vying for her love that she wants to be with? Will she retain her true self? Will Persephone succeed in her evil plans? You'll have to read and find out.
