Leader of the vampire clan MoonBound, Hunter will do what he must to save his people from extinction—or worse, a torturous eternity as vampire slaves and subjects of human experimentation.To keep his enemies at bay, he has agreed to mate a rival clan leader’s daughter in return for peace between the clans and an ally in the looming war with the humans.

But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests. Then he must resist the searing passions of the gorgeous vampire warrior he despises but is bound to mate. Will Hunter stay true to his word? Or will he risk everything for the woman he really loves: the vampire seductress’s identical twin sister?



1thoughtsIn order to save a couple of his clan members who were being held and tortured by another clan, Hunter made a deal. Let his members go and in exchange he’d marry the clan chief’s daughter thus uniting the two clans. He’s not thrilled with the arrangement but he knows that being clan chief, he has to do things that he may not like in order to protect his people. Like marrying a rude and vicious vampire names Rasha. However, when Rasha’s bridal party gets ambushed by vampire hunters, Hunter goes off to rescue his soon-to-be bride and her party. He finds out that she’s not as vile as he originally thought. The only problem is, he has the wrong twin, and soon he finds himself in an interesting predicament.

This was a great story. With Hunter being the chief, there is a lot that rests on his shoulders. Non of his clan members are happy about the upcoming mating but they all know that if he doesn’t do it there will be war with the other clan. It doesn’t help that Rasha’s clan are some barbaric people, Rasha included. However, whereas Rasha is vicious and tough, Aylin, her twin sister, is gentle and caring. The birth defect that left her with a twisted leg bone has caused her much pain not only physically but mentally as well. She was brought up as the lowest member of the clan because of it and was cruelly mistreated. Hunter see’s this and immediately has some compassion for her. Which is how they find themselves falling in love.

Not only is this story about Hunter and his upcoming mating but there’s also a little history on how vampires came to be and it all has to do with a demon. This demon makes Hunter go on a quest in hopes of saving his future firstborn child and the quest was definitely an adventure for both the characters and the reader. I liked that the author didn’t just keep the characters in their present time but added an extra element that I wasn’t expecting. The quest that Hunter goes on definitely adds a lot of suspense and depth to the story itself.

This is a great series. I highly enjoyed the first book and this one was no different. Larissa has a great way of making a paranormal romance her own. There was so much going on, so many things that I hadn’t read before that I was glued to my seat all day reading. I literally finished this baby in one day. I can’t wait to see who’s story is next.


1favequote“If  Hunter had been at all unsure that he wouldn’t like his soon-to-be mate, he was now completely, 100 percent certain that he’d kill her within a year. Except that, with his luck,m he’d probably imprint on her and be unable to strangle her the way he wanted to do right now.”

4 Thoughts on “Review: Chained By Night by Larissa Ione

  1. I ❤ Ione’s writing! I just recently finished her Demonica series, and hope to get started on Lords of Deliverance soon, but then there’s these books too. I think I saw this one as a freebie somewhere… I was planning on passing it by, but now after reading your review I’m thinking that’s a stupid idea. LOL

    • It’s a great series. Her other series sound good but I generally tend to shy away from well established series because they end up not living up to the hype and my expectations. With this one being a new series, I’m right there with everyone else.

  2. Hi5! Great minds!

    I love Samnult and hopefully he gets a book down the line. Also I’m hoping Myne is next he reminds me of Zsadist, and if Rasha is his mate, I hope he tames that shrew.
