The MoonBound Clan series is about a group of vampires with unusual traits, and Larissa Ione makes this novella a fascinating installment packed with creative details. From how these beings perceive humans to their unique abilities, I was once again drawn into the lives of numerous vampires that truly intrigue me. Dangerous incidents, honestly sincere emotions, and sarcastic humor cause FORSAKEN BY NIGHT to be continuously enthralling.
Although Lobo is no longer a part of the MoonBound clan because they felt he could not be trusted, the vampire still feels compelled to watch over the remote area where they live in the Pacific Northwest. One night when shots are heard nearby, he goes to investigate and takes the wolf that he rescued years ago with him. When Tehya is seriously wounded by a poacher, Lobo is distraught at the thought of losing his only companion and makes the rash decision to take his beloved pet to the MoonBound clan compound for help. There is only one way to aid Tehya quickly, but his plan could have very high costs.
FORSAKEN BY NIGHT has lots of clever originality in every riveting scene. There is so much happening in the story despite its shorter length, and I was totally caught up in wanting to discover how things would turn out for Lobo and Tehya. I simply adore the supernatural beings Larissa Ione has brought to life in this series, as each one has their own distinctive personality plus ability, and her latest romantic couple is not only spirited but also enchanting. Lobo has faced much hardship since he was born, and I really felt for this vampire who needs to be loved. What occurred to Tehya in the past is very remarkable, and her life has certainly not been typical for someone who was once human and then found her life forever changed.
Many of the conversations throughout the story are packed with dry wit and some great comebacks, and I just had to laugh when I envisioned these skillfully depicted scenes. Larissa Ione always creates charming characters who are so easy to love. A few surprising twists led to revelations that I was not expecting. There are also some interesting events taking place within the vampire clans, and I am hoping for more books in the series which will explore these situations. The story was previously released in the BLOOD RED KISS anthology and is now available on its own.
I voluntarily reviewed the book from the publisher via NetGalley, and all comments are my honest opinion
