Update Dec 5 2012
I was recently given the Audio book for this novel and decided to give it a listen. All I have to say I was right the first time..it is a definite 5 Star listen as well as a 5 star read...The Narrator is very good and the details that I missed in the reading make it seem as if it was a whole new book. Still loving on this book and recommending it. Read it, Listen to it, just don't miss it!
October 13, 2011-original read:
Don't you love when you find a new author and series and they live up to all the hype?
Half-human and half-Wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the Wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful—and passionate—of the Elder Races.As the most feared and respected of the Wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they've ignited in each other.
Pia knows she must repay Dragos for her trespass, but refuses to become his slave—although she cannot deny wanting him, body and soul.
In Dragon Bound we meet Dragos and Pia, Dragos is the ancient Dragon and Pia...well read the book to find out what she is..Pia steals..Dragos loses his temper and tracks her down..and from there we have Elves, Goblins and Dark Fae all trying to capture or kill the two. Through out all this we meet an exciting cast of secondary creatures among them are gorgeous griffins, hunky Thunderbirds, statuesque Harpy, and a Gargoyle. What more can you want from a paranormal romance?...Nothin!
Thea Harrison's first novel is a blockbuster! She has created wonderful characters and with her intricate plot and takes you on a journey into the Elder Races. The reader connects with Pia immediately and though it takes a bit more to warm up to Dragos he becomes lovable too. The story grips you and doesn't want to let you go...I read into the wee hours because I just couldn't put it down. I can't wait to see what the future holds for this couple. I know we will be seeing the sentinel's own stories incoming adventures. Great Job!!! Wonderful writing.
I give it a solid 5 stars, not many authors can make you feel as if you are part of the story but Thea Harrison accomplishes this and so much more. A must read for shifter lovers and Paranormal lovers alike!
