Bound in Flesh based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
"Bound in Flesh" was not as good as I had hoped. After reading "Bound in Blood" I had higher expectations. This had a whole different feel to it with a lot of dark magick that I would not have expected from a vampire novel. The sex scenes were not as seductive either. They were sick and grotesque in a way. However, the power struggle of becoming immortal/god-like was a good plot. I liked that it picked up right after "Bound in Blood" ended (I didn't feel the closure I normal get at the end of a book), and I felt there was a real ending to this story. Michael was a new kind of vampire that I fell in love with, as my digust grew and my fading crush extinguish for Jack. I'm interested to see where David Thomas Lord takes this story next!
Art critic Jean-Luc ¿Jack¿ Courbet and his lover model Claude Halloran (Jack changed Claude in BOUND IN BLOOD) have literally taken a bite out of the gay communities of the Big Apple, the Vegas Strip, the Big Easy, and Paris to name a few of their haunts. The two vampires dine on the blood of their homosexual victims, but leave Manhattan since word spread about the ¿Horror of West Street¿. As they leave behind mostly dead but some enslaved undead, they make a mistake that might prove divine intervention for them if they can control and convert NYPD cop Michael O' Donald. He has turned but thirsts for revenge especially against those who changed him. Claude thinks Michael is perfect to finally eradicate Jack¿s violent much more powerful then them mother Noel Courbet. --- However, not only is Michael a shockingly independent thinker, ¿mother dearest¿ is coming for them as they failed to obtain as she demanded the Charnac¿s grimoires for her. Meeting red witches and switching bodies to hide their ¿souls¿ from Noel, Claude and Jack become Vegas stage magicians so they can dine in style. Still both wonder how they seem to be in hell in a hand basket quicker than nipping some mortal gay¿s neck. --- Changing the scope from the Greenwich Village sexual gay kills by Jack of underdeveloped prey in BOUND IN BLOOD yet keeping the morality of a creature hunting humans as food, BOUND IN FLESH is a terrific vampire fantasy focusing on the two vampires hiding from Mommy Dearest. The key cast members are fully developed especially Jack, Claude and Michael so that the audience can accept gay vampires traversing the world¿s hot spots. Sub-genre readers will enjoy the second Bound thriller as David Thomas Lord writes an exhilarating vampire tale. --- Harriet Klausner
I love the cover, but the story was really good too. I recommend this book to everyone
