Once two souls are joined...
When Adam's soul mate rejected him, there was more at stake than his heart. After seven hundred years of searching, his true match would have ended the curse that keeps his spirit in chains. But beautiful, stubborn Eliza May fled—and now Adam is doomed to an eternity of anguish, his only hope for salvation gone...
Their hearts will beat together forever...
No matter how devilishly irresistible Adam was, Eliza couldn't stand the thought of relinquishing her freedom forever. So she escaped. But she soon discovers she is being hunted—by someone far more dangerous. The only man who can help is the one man she vowed never to see again. Now Adam's kindness is an unexpected refuge, and Eliza finds that some vows are made to be broken...
The Darkest London series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine; mainly because of the varied characters and the steampunk environment. Perhaps the closest series I can relate it to is Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series, but even that one didn’t have as many paranormal species in it.
Soulbound is the 6th book in the fantastic series and involves Adam, a King of Spirits and Death, and Eliza, who ends up being Maeve’s granddaughter. Adam and Eliza’s meeting is a bit rough along with the start of the book. If you haven’t read the previous novels it will take you a bit to catch up on their animosity towards each other. Their relationship is heart wrenching and these two go through a lot to end up with their “happily ever after.”
It was also extremely satisfying to revisit characters from the previous novels. Their roles fit Soulbound perfectly and worked well with the overall story arc. I love when an author can seamlessly blend a multitude of characters together without them being gratuitous.
It’s clear that the next story will be Sin’s; who had several pivotal scenes in Soulbound. I can’t wait to read his upcoming story in Forevermore.
