Uncaged Review – A Demon Bound by Debra Dunbar

A Demon Bound
Debra Dunbar
Dark Fantasy

I never wanted to save the world… or these damned werewolves.

Life was pretty sweet until my hellhound bit one of them. Then I accidentally killed him—the werewolf, not my hellhound. Now I need to help the local alpha track down and destroy a rogue angel or I’ll lose everything that’s important to me, like my Corvette, and my awesome house with a pool.

I might wind up dead. I might wind up back in Hel. Or I might just pull something impish and manage to wiggle my way out of the whole mess.

Uncaged Review: I’m not real sure I ever really
liked the main character, at least in the first half
of the book, I was still on the fence with the book
as a whole for the full first half. This was such a
slow starter for me. As for Sam, I know she’s a
demon and the author does a good job keeping her
a demon and not letting her get “too humanized”
by her time in their world. But the background and
the world building is very lackluster, so it was hard
to get a good focus. I set this book down several
times before I finally finished it. When Gregory
shows up, the storyline is oxygenated to life. I
even started liking Sam more.

There are a lot of unanswered questions lying
around and I know this is a longer series so some
of the answers will keep coming, I’m sure. If the
world would have been better established, it may
have held me better in the first half. All in all, I’m
glad I muscled through as the back half was pretty
good, and I plan on moving to book two to see
where this story goes, but I can’t commit to more
than that at this point. Reviewed by Cyrene
