Review: Unbound (The Forbidden Bond #1) by Cat Miller

Unbound by Cat Miller provides an engaging action packed read with romance and forbidden love galore. 

I immediately liked the main female protagonist Danielle. She is a strong character with a range of insecurities , flaws and what's even better is we are allowed to follow her growth and development. Cat Miller successfully created a believable voice for her character and crafted her sarcasm and wit effectively - always a winner with me!

There were however, aspects of her character that I found a little frustrating, that I felt pushed against the very strong image I had created of Danielle's personality, and that was the multiple love triangles or even quadrangles she found herself in. There were times that this became somewhat samey and cliche. I think it was in particular the characters' response to these relationship issues that also frustrated me. 

But despite this one aspect of the book that didn't appeal, I did enjoy how Cat Miller captured individual relationship sparks with a collection of the characters. I'm also interested to discover how the cliffhanger ending pans out.

There are lots of strengths with Unbound. The overall plot, the pace and Cat Miller's creativity and flair. A strong start to this paranormal romance series.
Goodreads Synopsis
Betrayal, passion, family secrets, murder, and vampires...

What else would one expect during their freshman year of college?

After her birth, Danielle Vaughn, and her mother were ushered out of town in a surreptitious attempt to save her life; vampire prejudice can be deadly.

Like any normal nineteen year old, her biggest worry in life was blending in and working hard to keep her grades up. Her departure from a small town in search of a higher education causes a domino effect; she quickly finds herself maneuvering through a maze of enemies and lovers who are all hell bent on capturing her at any cost.

Danielle’s life is turned upside down by the return of her father and the society of vampires that shattered her human mother’s life. She must find a way to survive in the new world she is thrust into by a power hungry rogue on the hunt for gifted vampire youth. The hierarchy of the vampire nation is rocked by the existence of a demi-vamp who has challenged their narrow-minded views of the human race.
