Review: Rachel Vincent does it again! Blood Bound is nothing short of excellent! Already, I think I’m going to like this series even better than Shifters. This book has everything you have come to expect from such a great author, but with a bit of a dark streak running through the book.

Unlike Faythe (Shifters), Blood Bound’s main character Liv hasn’t grown up on a beautiful ranch, constantly protected and sheltered. Liv is Skilled, which definitely has it’s advantages but has lead her into a dark world where she has to do what she can to get by, and it’s not always pretty. She hasn’t always been the hero.

Any complaints I have are so minor they don’t even qualify. The only thing that even through me for a bit of a loop is that of the group of girls that made up Liv’s childhood group, at least two are possibly the most powerful in existence of their particular skill. What are the chances? Since only one of those characters is seen in this story though, I am happy to let it go.

The world created within these pages is a believable one. Super powers haven’t lead to superheros. People are willing to do whatever it takes to get by, even if it means using their advantages. Everything about this book is fantastic, and I definitely recommend it to well, pretty much everyone. If you like superheros, dystopia, urban fantasy, x-men… this story just rocks and you should pretty much be reading it riiiggght now!
