Soulbound by Kristen Callihan

Darkest London, Book 6

Synopsis: 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…

Review: I do not know if you know Kristen Callihan, but one thing is for sure, she manages every time to delight me with her novels. Oh yes, this author has an incredible gift and she carries us every time with her stories featuring some new really fascinating characters. Of course, as always, we find many former protagonists and we learn more about the secondary’s. Here, we therefore find Eliza and Adam discovered earlier.

In the previous volume, our young heroine Eliza was released from the strings that Adam had placed on her since she was dead. Her freedom was something she wanted more than anything and we can understand that after all she has endured. Yet it seems that she left behind her a cage to be placed in another one. Mab is hiding many secrets that will completely change the situation concerning the behavior of the young woman and her brother Mallan also has a great role to play in this. It must be said that the two have both their own objectives but it always concerns Adam and Eliza. Our two heroes will then have to team up together to avoid the schemes provided for them. Yet it is very difficult for our young heroine to trust the man who enslaved her. Conversely, Adam is determined to end his curse and it means to connect with Eliza, her soul mate and to show her that they can be much more despite what he did to her, what he made her endure.

I loved the story of this couple. Nothing is easy for them. Eliza does not succumb directly to his attraction, she is quite suspicious, especially after all the events and whatever happens, she tries to stay away from him. Starting the novel, it is very easy to understand the young woman but much less Adam. Still, while getting to know him, knowing his reasons, we assimilate why he did so even though it was not a good idea. Then I must say that our hero does all he can to make amends so she can finally trust him, so she opens herself even if he is in a bad shape.

As I said we also see the appearance of the characters we love like the Archer’s couple or Evernight’s and we even have the chance to catch a glimpse of the person who will be put forward in the following adventures of our characters. In all cases I still had an incredible time once again with this novel. We have a great really compelling plot and we remain fascinated by the characters and their actions.

  1. I was super conflicted about this book. On one hand, Kristen Callihan can do no wrong IMO, but on the other, I found this one a tad too predictable compared to the previous installments, so I subtracted .5 stars. Adam still managed to turn all of my girlie bits into mush though. LOVE HIM!

  2. So glad you loved this! I read the first book and really liked it. I keep meaning to read the others but I honestly forget about it. I should make an effort to read the others, especially knowing how much everyone loves them.

  3. Sounds like this is a great series for you Melliane! I love when I find an author that never disappoints me, and I know when I pick up one of their books I’m in for a good time:) I had no idea we were on book 6 of this series already, I have some serious catching up to do!

  4. I am having issues reading the review…because my eyes are glued to guy with the chain. He’s good looking, but I am super curious what is he doing with that chain. Maybe it is in the review.

    *reads review*

    Okay…I think I understand now. lol

  5. Haven’t read her so far, but … damn! Check out that cover, right? 😛 It sounds like a nice little book, perfect for one of these very cold nights we’ve been having… Great review, Melliane!

  6. I know her by name, but I haven’t read her books yet and your review certainly makes me think I definitely should give this series a go. Glad this instalment was SO great for you, Melliane!
