Publisher's Summary

Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation into a vampire, Merit has stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago's Cadogan House. She's saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.

When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire who seems to be under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have imagined. As malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It is her last chance to save everything - and everyone - she loves.

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.75
Story: 4.5

The end of this series. I've looked forward to this book so much, but at the same time I've dreaded it because I wasn't sure if I was ready for this series to end. But the author really did an amazing job with how she ended the series.

This series has always had this unspoken character in it...Chicago. And Chicago plays a HUGE roll in this book. And I kind of love that Chloe Neill did that because she took this amazing series and just made it epic for the end. I loved that.

So this book...it features the wedding. All the good things are happening for Merit and Ethan...and it is good. I love how they've grown and evolved throughout this series. For their relationship, they are in such a GOOD place. They love and respect one another and that comes through in everything. It's everywhere else in their lives that keep having issues. But they stay in a happy place, so I'm okay with whatever happens as long as that continues. Also, there was a HFN resolution for Jonah in this one that I kind of loved, too.

And I really don't want to say anything else about it, because this is the finale. I don't want to spoil anything about it. You need to know it's going to be good. It's a great finale. All the various story lines are taken care of. All the characters show back up. Everything is tied up with neat little bows and where things go in the very end are better than brilliant. I'm happy.

And note...if you listened to this in audio like me, message me. There is a single page in the back of the physical book that isn't in the audio about things to come and you WANT to know what it says! I promise...

I'm so excited.

Surprised

Sorry to see an end to the series it was a very entertaining and I will miss the characters. That being said for this to be the final installment for a well loved series this story was very lackluster. Although the story ended on a happy note the story itself seem to run out of steam and just ended. I am hope this story is the beginning of a spinoff with the child being the main main characters. One can alway hope.

HEA ending

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and listening to this series. While I am sad that the stories of Merit and Ethan are over, I am glad that it was tied up with a nice bow on top. In some sense I could tell the author was kind of done with the series, but it didn't distract Too Much from the final installment. I'm curious as to how the spin-off is going to be.

Great story

Blade Bound was a great story with a good mix of magic, vampires, drama, undead life, fighting, and intimate scenes. From a marriage to a battle with a mythical creature the audience is guaranteed an interesting and captivating story. The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

The end of a series with an cliffhanger? WTF?

Overall, I enjoyed this series. It definitely had a predictable pattern, in every book but, since the good guys prevailed, I can live with that. It definitely could have been a more sensual series, in my opinion, but I enjoyed it all the same. My biggest complaint is that the series ended with an unrevealed prophecy of the future. Hell, that was exceptionally cruel; and aggravating. Oh well, I guess all we can do is watch and wait for a spin-off series. I’m off to find a new series to sink my teeth in to.

Really Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this story and it was a great listen. I struggled to hang on in the early days of Chicago Land but now really anticipate each new book. Blade Bound delivers a new and different story with solid appearances from the faithful cast. Looking forward to #14. - -Kevin
