2nd Edition

Humans have the option of separation, divorce, and heartbreak. For Corinne Carol-Anne Kirkpatrick, sorceress and queen of the vampires, the choices are limited to love or death. Now that she is back at Green’s Hill and assuming her duties as leader, her life is, at best, complicated. Bracken and Nicky are competing for her affections, Green is away taking care of his people, and a new supernatural enemy is threatening the sanctity of all she has come to love. Throw in a family reunion gone bad, a supernatural psychiatrist, and a killer physics class, and Cory’s life isn’t just complex, it’s psychotic.

Cory needs to get her act and her identity together, and soon, because the enemy she and her lovers are facing is a nightmare that doesn’t just kill people, it unmakes them. If she doesn’t figure out who she is and what her place is on Green’s Hill, it’s not just her life on the line. She knows from hard experience that the only thing worse than facing death is facing the death of someone she loves.

Loving people is easy—living with them is what takes the real work, and it’s even harder if you’re bound.

1st Edition published as Bound: The Third Book of the Little Goddess Series by iUniverse, 2007.

My View:

Wow! I think this is my favourite of the series yet. There is so much character growth and relationship building. We see things from Cory, Bracken, Green, and Nicky’s points of view; a format necessary to know all that is going on. We also are introduced to a new baddy and tension is high at the Hill.

I loved seeing Cory regain her footing and sort out how all her men fit into place. I especially liked how Nicky began to find his niche. Cory really grew into herself and although she is still plagued by her self-doubts I can see her as the vampire queen she is.

There is far more sex in this book than the previous ones, and it is more graphic as well, though still not on the same heat level as many other Amy Lane works. It made things a little more visceral and intense as so much of Cory’s magic is based in sex.

I loved the new characters introduced and finding out how they tie in. There is quite the ensemble cast happening.

I can’t wait to read Vol 2 to find out what happens next!
