A new voice takes her place with a story that chronicles a deadly threat to humanity. Kellison offers readers a fresh take on death, Fae and soul-sucking wraiths while introducing readers to her version of Twilight — or the realm between life and death. A highly promising debut!

Against all rules, Death fell in love with a young woman. Their brief moment of forbidden passion resulted in a child and the escape of a dark entity. Talia O’Brien has always known she was different, and a near-death experience briefly introduces her to her father, known as Shadowman.

After his brother Jacob turned into a soul-sucking wraith and killed his parents, Adam Thorne started Segue Industries to discover how to kill the now immortal Jacob. When he comes across Talia’s thesis on near-death experiences, he knows he must hire her. But with the wraiths after her, too, it’s a race against time. What is so special about Talia that the wraiths fear her? Is she humanity’s best hope? (LEISURE, Jul., 322 pp., $7.99)

Excellent paranormal read!

Shadow Bound begins a paranormal journey with an interesting storyline that is refreshing to read.  Dr. Talia O'Brien is the daughter of Shadowman, who escorts souls to their next life.  In a world with wraiths who are trying to destroy the human race, Talia meets Adam Thorne of Segue Industries where they join forces and also fall in love.  If you are a fan of the Ice series by Anne Stuart or her novella about the Grim Reaper titled Dark Journey, this is the series for you!
