Overview

In the third book in this beloved and “riveting” (Romantic Times) urban fantasy series, demon-friendly tiki bar owner Arcadia Bell discovers more about her own evolving, and possibly destructive, magical abilities when her bar is the target of a demonic crime wave.

Demons sure know how to kill a girl’s buzz.

Renegade mage and bartender Arcadia Bell has had a rough year, but now the door to her already unstable world is becoming completely unhinged. When a citywide crime wave erupts, Cady’s demon-friendly tiki bar is robbed by Earthbounds wielding surreal demonic abilities that just flat-out shouldn’t exist. With the help of her devilishly delicious boyfriend, Lon Butler, Cady sets out to find the people who wronged her—but her targets aren’t the only ones experiencing unnatural metamorphoses. Can Cady track down the monsters responsible before the monster inside her destroys everything—and everyone—she loves? If she survives this adventure, one thing is certain: it’s last call for life as she knows it.

Binding the Shadows, (Arcadia Bell),Jenn Bennett Review from jeannie zelos book reviews Well, it's on to book three in the series and once again it's a cracking read, full of drama, action and with that edge of romance. Cady – that girl seems to lurch from one crisis to another, and this time it begins with an accident while working ( unwillingly!) for Hellfire club owner Dare, and as if that's not enough she gets caught up in a crime spree, where Earthbounds are weilding impossible abilities....and if humans start getting suspicious it puts them all in danger. Cady's on the outside of the crime spree stuff, just looking in to begin, checking things out - and then her Tiki bar gets hit and Kar Yee badly injured. Cady is furious, and determines she will get to the bottom of it – but of course as usual that brings her into all sorts of danger. Throw in a visit from Lon's ex, the stunningly beautiful Yvonne, and her sister and mother and Cady has more than she can handle at one time. I love Cady, she's always in trouble but not of her making. She just tries to do what's right, what's moral and gets caught up in the dangers. She's trying to work out how to handle her new Moonchild powers too, and they are growing rapidly. Lon as always is that solid support, quiet but effective, and you can just feel how strong their connection is. He's such a great partner to Cady, and so delicious with his dry, subtle wit.Then there's Jupe – oh I love that kid! As I said before he reminds me so much of grandchild number one – same motor mouth, openness, and naivity. It's a great combo in an early teen. Poor Jupe though doesn't have a normal teen life with all the magic and demons he's surrounded with. When he's relaying his conversation with the teacher...thats such a typical teen thing!! They always think they have all the answers ;-) It was interesting to meet auntie, grandma and the ex...we've heard about them but this is the first time meeting them – I was nervous for Cady. The story in this book is complete, but pulls on plotlines from past books, and ends with a stunning bit of news leading to the next book. A very emotional ending! I read the last book first ( I know, I know....but I didn't realise it was the final book – loved it though) and now I've done the first three I'm going for the novella next, and then a re read of book four. Though I loved it now I've more context to set things against, so will be intersting to see what I didn't pick up on. Stars: again a fab read and five stars. ARC supplied by publishers.

This is the third book in the Arcadia Bell series, and they just keep getting better and better. This one is set at Christmas time, and not only do Cady and Lon have to deal with Earthbound demons using enhanced powers that they shouldn't have, they're also dealing with the holiday visit of Lon's in-laws and his ex-wife. Cady discovers a few changes in herself as well, and with all the pressure, it's a wonder she can function at all. I didn't see the ending of this story coming, and wow, what a doozy. It's left me in such suspense to find out what happens to these characters I love - Cady and Lon, as well as her business partner Kar Yee and young Jupiter. The next book can't come out fast enough, come on April 2014!
