But survival comes at a price. First, Hunter must break an ancient curse by successfully negotiating three deadly tests. Then he must resist the searing passions of the gorgeous vampire warrior he despises but is bound to mate. Will Hunter stay true to his word?

First Thought when Finished: Holy hotness batman! Chained by Night by Larissa Ione ranks in the top 3 books by her that I have read.
Story Thoughts: OMG I love where this series is heading or at least where I think it is heading. With Larissa she could be hooking me left and then sending me right. She is sneaky like that! However, what I really love is all the Native American heritage tie-ins this series has. It played such a huge part in Chained by Night. I was just giddy listening to it! The only part that caused the story to be 4.50 instead of 5 I will mention way down below in a spoiler area (so you are warned now not to click on it).
Character Thoughts: HUNTER—no, wait a minute. I have to say the most kick ass character in this story was Alyin. She had one brilliant story arc and never (not for one single moment) did I feel any kind of pity for her. She was strong, smart, and beautifully written. She seriously rocked it! Hunter is HOT. He can wear his loin cloth around anytime he wants too. I won’t complain a bit. The fact that he is super alpha, extremely loyal, and unbelievably awesome at leading play a part in his awesomeness too. However, I am just going to stick with loin cloth. Have to say, there are several people I would love to get stories in this series. I looked and no hint at what is coming down the pike. I think that is cruel and unusual punishment for the needy gal that I am! I am hoping Baddon but I am guessing he needs at least another book before he is settle down ready.
Narrated By Amy Landon / Length: 11 hrs and 40 mins
I thought Amy Landon did a good job with the narration. I think she nailed Alyin and even nailed Rasha. I wish that a guy had done Hunter’s voice but she did a pretty good job with his voice too. The pacing was excellent and emotions were spot on!
Final Thoughts: Count down has begun to book 3!View Spoiler »So I wasn’t a fan of the heal the cripple part. I get why it was done and she was able to grow in a different way after. Part of what made her a fantastic character was her attitude in spite of her disability so I think there was a missed opportunity there. It wasn’t a big deal but did make me *sigh* a little! « Hide Spoiler
