“Whether it’s passion, lust, love, anger, vengeance, compassion, ambition, determination…emotion gives us reason to live. If you don’t have that, what’s the point?”
Bound by Forever was superbly written, we were compelled by the story, entranced by the beautiful Japanese scenery and above all, we fell in love with the characters. Samantha Young has a knack for mastering the recipe of a bloody brilliant paranormal romance. It has intrigue, mystery, drama and perfectly placed romance and heat. The build-up is agonisingly slow, just how we like it. The emphasis being on the storyline and character development. The connection and the push-pull was tantalising, the angst and dramatics electrifying. Filled with twists, ancient curses, and prophecies, Bound by Forever had us hooked and is another fabulous instalment in this series.

BOUND by FOREVER (True Immortality #3) by S YOUNG
”Killing someone is never easy, Rose, and the first time you’re able to walk away from it without feeling that death mark your soul means you’re losing your soul.”
Kiss of Vengeance was a mammoth of a book in Sam Young’s new paranormal series about Fae, Vampires, Wolves, Witches and Warlocks. We are absolutely loving this series, which is the type of brilliantly written paranormal that speaks right to our hearts. Whilst we didn’t end up loving it as much as War of Hearts, the first book in this series, we still fell utterly in love with Rose and Fionn as individual characters, as well as their kick-arse slow burn romance. The paranormal and mythical world, which Sam Young has created in this series, is absolutely brilliant. So well written and superbly detailed, making it both evocative and compelling to read. There’s no question that Kiss of Vengeance was character and story driven at heart, which is what makes for a great read!
Whilst this series can definitely be read as standalones, we wholeheartedly recommend reading it in order. Whilst War of Hearts is summarized in Kiss of Vengeance, nothing is quite like experiencing the story for yourselves.

KISS OF VENGEANCE (A True Immortality Novel #2) by S YOUNG (Samantha Young)
‘She wanted to be touched, to be loved, and to touch and love in return…’
War of Hearts by Samantha Young felt like the kind of old school paranormal which we love so much, the kind that feels like pure adrenaline-inducing indulgence. Otherworldly beings, mythical creatures, drama and thrills, heat and passion. Paranormal romance is one of our favourites and this story absolutely confirmed why. Samantha Young writing as S Young nailed her first paranormal romance and we cannot wait for more from her. It had everything we loved and in many ways, it reminded us of why we fell in love with Samantha Young’s words, to begin with, back in 2012. This is one of her best books in our opinion.
Slow burn romances, when done well, are so incredibly enticing and thrilling and War of Hearts had a perfect pace. Conall and Thea start out as hunter and prey but end up as so much more. It was compelling reading as we travelled across Europe, visiting familiar sights as well as sights added to our bucket lists.
