Broken Slave is book two of the Bound in Bloodlust series. I have not read the first one yet, but the story stands on its own and it looks like the books can be read out of sequence as well. My impression was of a story that took some elements of the Twilight Saga and merged them with Ann Rice (circa Lestat) sensibilities. Savannah added a lot of dark passionate sex to the mix creating a fast and arousing story of uncontrollable desires. As in a classic Greek drama, the main characters are flawed and week, even when they are, like Nathan arena Gods. There is no background story about the bloodlings, but that does not detract from our fascination. Some of the events in the plot seem to be a continuation of previous incidents, but that only made me feel like I should read the prequel (Unchained Lust.)
I was trying to get a leg up on my lagging workload, so I started reading this one around midnight. Strangely enough, I just couldn’t stop and had it all finished by 2 am. Definitely, a fast paced, page turner and I am expecting an equally well done sequel.
