Dark Bound: Shadow and Light, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
In my life, when things go bad, they go notoriously bad.
As if having a greater demon hunting me wasn’t bad enough, or a demented archangel trying to kill me, try doing a job for a fae queen I hate.
Because, someone close to me is about to lose everything if I don’t find a crapload of money soon. But without any other jobs coming up, I’m stuck. So, when the fae queen of the Dark Court offers me a gig, I take it.
But what I thought was a routine hunt turns into a fight for my life. Oh, and my master plan for making easy money? Yeah, not so much.

I loved the first book, am disappointed in the second book with how the heroine is portrayed. What happened to her? Only 6 months have passed since the actions of the last book and suddenly Rowyn, who is 24 years old, regresses to a 13 year old mooning over Jax with the lingering over his physical attributes throughout the entire book. She is also full of self pity for herself, blaming everything being her fault -I have little patience for all the whining and I couldn't see her putting up with it from others if the tables were turned. She agrees to accept blood money from evil incarnate Queen Isobel of the faeries for a faerie that killed her son and is surprised with the Queen's treatment of him? She never thinks to get his side of the story until it is too late. Her friends warn her that Queen Isobel is not to be trusted yet doesn't find it suspicious that her finder fee is exactly what her grandmother needs to get out of debit? The foolish choices Rowyn makes in this book is what I usually find in badly written horror books that has you screaming "don't do it!!". Any reader can see trouble coming a mile away as she remains obvious. Unending amounts of fighting around every corner which got repetitive. (don't think-just kill) Lots of trouble laid at Rowyn's feet. Degamon returns , the consequences of killing an Archangel , and of course the Piece De Resistance-the end of the world! The book ends in a cliff hanger so I'll try the next one to see if Rowyn somehow matures, ditches the self pity and regains her intelligence. It's pretty bad when Tyrius -the cat/demon- shows more common sense than Rowyn.
Rowyn always seems to find herself in some kind of a mess. But she always tries to figure out a way out of them. I love Rowyn, she is so bad a$$. She can have arrows shot into her thigh and still that doesn’t stop her. I mean, how can you not love her? She also finds some humor in the midst of it all. It helps though to have the cat Tyrius by her side. I love that Demon.
Just like the first book, once the story starts, it’s a roller coaster. There’s never a moment where you’re thinking, man this boring. There’s no chance, after one thing there’s something else. You never know what Richardson has up her sleeve. Rowyn and Jax’s relationship is explored in Dark Bound. But there’s something that has to keep them apart. Even though you don’t get those hot scorching moments, you feel it. There’s something that lies deep within them, and it’s like they are destined to be a part of each other's lives.
I’ve been a fan of Richardson for a while. It just seems like every book she writes, and she gets better and better. The writing is magic, it’s brilliant, and I can’t get enough. Now I have to wait for #3, and I hate waiting. What’s going to happen next? I have to know. Hurry up book three.
Overall, Five Boundless Stars
I don't know if I can stomach book three. "Oh I have to save jax, tears, I just want him to rub me up!! Ugh. Rich you just keep using the same material to add books.
Leave good writing to the professionals
Rowyn (the main character) whom is suppose to be the 'badass, take-no-crap from anyone', is full of self doubt. She also keeps putting herself down and for being a 'great' powerful demon/angle born there are still no great powers to show. Almost every demon, angel, vampire.... kicks her ass.
I had to either skip some pages or take a break from reading the book as it got frustrating with Rowyn degrading herself.
I love Tyrius the cat though. His character is adorable!
