Brian Webster has no soul. It is his duty to collect souls, and in doing so, hopefully he can establish a good enough rapport to ascend to a higher plane.
Lena Sharpe may be a Soul Gatherer, but she is also a thief. When someone precious is taken from her, she will do whatever it takes to get her back, even if it means siding with the devil.
Brian does not want to believe that Lena will take the ancient coins and sell them to the highest bidder. But every time he turns around, she is running or trying to find some way to get the coins from him. Not able to trust the woman, but wanting to trust his gut feelings about her, Brian continues his inner struggle even as the war between good and evil rages on. When the time comes, will Lena make the ultimate sacrifice to save millions, or will she selfishly try to save the one who is being tortured by the vile demons?
Bound by Darkness has some moments of sexiness, spiciness, action, and adventure to keep you interested enough to read further. However, parts of the story refer to a previous tale, and if you have not read it, you may not understand the book in that instant. The way many of the characters struggled with their own personal demons even as they warred with the demons from hell was a good conflict and kept the novel intense. I also think the way Ms. McCleave has given Brian and Lena very normal and human errors in their life makes this paranormal world more realistic. It will be interesting to see where the series develops from here.
