You can’t escape the darkness

Magnus Blackwell’s past is about to catch up with him.

An evil force has seized New Orleans. Pestilence, suffering, and darkness cloak the city. The citizens are scared and need their mambo to guide them, but Lexie Arden can’t help anyone. A diabolical presence has taken Lexie’s power and severed her ties with the other side.

Magnus Blackwell is fighting demons of his own. Torn between his devotion to Lexie and a spirit from his past, Magnus’s loyalty is put to the test. He must revisit his sins to uncover the key to the hatred ripping the city apart. If he doesn’t, Lexie’s reign as mambo will end.

Their search for answers leads them deep into the darker realms of voodoo—until a desperate Lexie does the unthinkable, and Magnus can do nothing to spare her from her fate.

New Orleans is under siege by an evil force and darkness is surrounding the city. The members of the voodoo community are scared and want their mambo to help them, but Lexie has lost her power and she isn’t able to connect to the other side. Magnus was not a good man in his life and even though he has changed as a ghost he still has many of his own demons to fight. As Lexie and Magnus try to figure out how to return Lexie’s power and save the city the path they will follow could change them both forever. 

Another well-written book in the Magnus Blackwell series, Bound captures the essence of New Orleans and voodoo in a fascinating light. Lexie is curious, strong-willed and willing to help everyone. Magnus is changing and now has more than his own interests at heart. The history behind the story is fascinating and I enjoyed how it followed reality. Will still did not win over my heart but his character did win some gold stars with me.
