A lovely review from Two Lips Reviews

Reviewer: Julianne To keep his people from banishment, Ariyal sold himself to the evil Morgana Le Fey. Ariyal is a Sylvermyst; they are mysterious with a reputation as sinister cousins to the Fey. Ariyal is now free, and life is anything but boring. He faces the elite Vampire Jaelyn, who was sent to capture him, plus he must make sure the Dark Lord stays banished. Jaelyn is beautiful and deadly and has always been alone. She's a Hunter and doesn't have a need for pesky emotions. Now there is Ariyal, Jaelyn senses there is more than just pure lust between them. Ariyal and Jaelyn join forces to save his tribe and the world from the return of the Dark Lord. Bound by Darkness byAlexandra Ivy is the first book I've read by this author. I was drawn by the cover and the blurb, and didn't realize that it was part of a series. I was captivated by the second page and found Bound by Darkness very difficult to put down. Ms. Ivy has great world building skills and I felt like I was there with Ariyal and Jaelyn. All the characters were very well written; they had depth, emotion, and fun personalities. I loved Ariyal; even after centuries of being a sex slave, he still had a keen sense of humor. He was exciting, loyal, loving, caring, gorgeous, strong, and so unique. Ariyal was also very confident in his abilities, and the sex between him and Jaelyn was scorching hot. Jaelyn was strong willed and a force to be reckoned with. She didn't want her heart or her emotions involved; a Hunter is a killing machine, not a sappy woman with feelings. I was so, so happy when Jaelyn realized she had feelings for Ariyal. There is a lot of extra plot action going on in Bound by Darkness, with twists and turns that keep the reader turning the pages to find out what happens next. I'm getting the rest of the Guardians of Eternity series and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
