[ARC Review] - Shadow Bound

Title: Shadow Bound
Author: Erin Kellison
Series: Shadow
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: June 29, 2010

I received this book for review from Dorchester Publishing.

Some people will do anything to avoid it. Even trade their immortal souls for endless existence.

Secretly, inexorably, they are infiltrating our world, sucking the essence out of unsuspecting victims with their hideous parody of a kiss.

Adam Thorne founded the Institute to study and destroy his monster of a brother, but the key to its success is held in the pale, slender hand of a woman on the run. There is something hauntingly different about Talia O’Brien, her unknowing sensuality, her uncanny way of slipping into Shadow.

This is the place between life and what comes after - a dark forest of fantasy, filled with beauty, peril, mystery. And Talia is about to open the door.

Thoughts: Adam Thorne is on a mission to find a way to kill his wraith brother, Jacob. It's one of the main reason's he created the Segue Institute. But when he learns of the intriguing Dr. Talia O'Brien he believes her knowledge and ability will lead him to the answers he's look for.

This was an excellent story. Original, fast, full of action with an eerie but, fascinating story line. I wasn't a fan of Talia's at first, but in the end I found both her and Adam to be very interesting characters. Shadow Bound is a haunting tale where fantasy and the paranormal are woven together beautifully. Both the romance and action will keep you turning the page.

Score: 4 Stars
