Friday Frights ~ PNR Review ~ Blood Bound (Blackthorn #7) by Lindsay J Pryor

Book Description:

Love can be heaven. Or it can hurt like hell. 

For exiled angel Jessie, falling for Eden Reece has been her salvation. When she discovers that her angel tears, used to heal Eden, are actually poisoning him the burden of guilt is crushing.

Jessie is determined to make things right and, with Eden by her side, they are a formidable team. But with Blackthorn surrounded by an impenetrable barrier and the army of Sirius Throme closing in, their mission is a desperate one. When Jessie discovers they are up against her own kind too, it looks impossible. 

Eden and Jessie don’t just need a cure, they need a way out – and have less than 48 hours to find both. 

Eden will fight to the last to protect Jessie, but when they are captured and separated, demons from his past return to haunt him. Suddenly, Jessie is forced to question everything she knows about the man she loves. 

Yet the most shattering twist is still to come. Because what you care about most can be your biggest weakness. 

For Blackthorn to survive, either Jessie or Eden will have to make the greatest sacrifice of all… 

The thrilling penultimate story in the Blackthorn series will leave you breathless.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

This series has had me gripped from the very first book. As this series continued the characters came to life before your eyes weaving a gripping story of the struggles and the hierarchy in the world of Blackthorn. The characters are so believable that you feel yourself being drawn into the stories that Lindsay J Pryor weaves and this book is no exception even though it is sad to say that this is the penultimate book before the end of this awesome series. I for one will be very sad to say goodbye to the world of Blackthorn as it has given many hours of pleasure and when I read that very last page it will be like saying goodbye to an old friend.

This book is about Jessie and Eden, of their unfailing love for each other that sees them through what can only be called cruelty at its highest. Also, their love for Eden’s family and the fate of Blackthorn in which they have a vital role to play. This sees them through these very dark times showing you their strength of character knowing what has to be done to keep everything they love safe from the enemies that surround them.

But even through everything that is put in their way a love like theirs cannot be taken away from them as the feelings that are deep inside each of them comes to the fore.

“The deepest part of her core ignited, the warmth of his kiss about more than the heat of his lips. Teasing, coaxing, exploratory, he brushed his lips against hers time and time again before finally clutching the nape of her neck, his palm pressed to the wall beside her head as he backed her against it, as his tongue met hers.”

I won’t say anything more as I do not wish to spoil it for any of the readers only to say that the build-up in this book is tremendous and exciting and a real page turner.

One can only wonder what Book 8 will hold for our heroes and heroines of that magical place called Blackthorn.
