Review: Soulbound (Darkest London #6) by Kristen Callihan

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 . . .

Soulbound was certainly a unexpected surprise.When I very started reading, I felt a bit on the fence. It didn’t initially catch my attention and I had to take a couple of breaks. Also, the covers for all the books in the series had me thinking this would be more of a historical which is not my cup of tea. Yes I almost caved and stopped reading but I pushed through, got over my historical hang-up and by the time I hit chapter two I was hooked.

My initial impression of Adam was grumpy and selfish. Of course as I got to know his character more and more everything became clear. Cursed for seven hundred years, not being able to feel anything and finally, he can! I probably would have chained Eliza to me, too. Eliza also seemed a bit ungrateful to me after all Adam did save her life, and yeah okay learning her history as well made a bit more sense but still I didn’t like her at first. Of course, she learned her lesson and now needs his help. As each layer is reveled I really started to lose myself in the story enough so that I didn’t see a few things coming. Somethings I expected and was not disappointed when they happen but there were equal amounts of ‘Whoa didn’t see that coming!’ moments that delightfully caught me by surprise. Overall, I enjoyed the whole book, well once I got over the beginning that is.
I really doubt having not read the previous titles made any difference in my initial impression of the book but it took me a while to figure out when it did. It was all the secondary characters. There’s quite a few couples in the story that interact with Adam and Eliza that I almost felt I should have known there story. I found all the characters in the story fascinating, and for the most part liked all of them. When I went back and checked the previous titles in the series, there they all were. I found myself really liking Sin and Lucien. I sense there may be a book in Sin’s future but probably not for Lucien. I sort of feel left out having not read any of their stories however, since Soulbound worked very well as a stand-alone I don’t believe they were a necessity to read. Although, since I enjoyed Soulbound so much I’m tempted to read the series from the beginning.

A good series to be read for anybody who enjoys paranormal romances!
