Review: Forsaken by Night by Larissa Ione

I was wondering what was going on with this series! It’s great to see that it’s still going and that a really cool character like Lobo gets his happy ending.

Format: .mobi (A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. )
Publisher: Pocket Star
Release Date: September 25, 2017

After accidentally shifting into a wolf—and getting stuck—Tehya, herself a vampire, has spent the last twelve years as the pet of Lobo, another vampire who has the unique gift of communicating with wolves.

When Lobo found Tehya starving and nearly frozen to death, he took her in and nursed her back to health, all the while completely unaware that she was really a fellow vampire. But there was always something special about her, and he finds out exactly how special after she’s injured and returned to her true form. Desire collides with danger as he soon finds that he must protect not only Tehya but also himself..

What’s it About? Vampire Tehya has the unique gift of being able to shift into a wolf. Unfortunately for her, she shifted and got stuck in her wolf form. For twelve YEARS. During that time she’s been the companion to fellow vampire and outcast Lobo, who was unaware that she was a vampire. When Lobo originally found Tehya she was half frozen and dying so he nursed her back to health and kept the wolf as a pet. Then Tehya is seriously injured and Lobo breaks some serious vampire rules to get her the treatment she needs and while she’s being treated she shifts back to her original form. Suddenly the special connection between her and Lobo takes a new and heated turn, but before they can figure things out, Lobo has to face the consequences of what he did to save Tehya.

Overall reaction to the story? It’s been a few years since I read the first book in the Moonbound Clan series and I never got around to reading the second so I felt that I missed some key points from that second book that were mentioned in Forsaken by Night. It wasn’t anything major that kept me from understanding what was happening with Lobo and Tehya but I knew I had missed something.

I enjoyed Lobo and at the same time I felt bad for him. He was an outcast because of his particular gift and that hardened him into a survivor but he also had a caring, nurturing side when it came to the wolves he considered his friends. His relationship with Wolf Tehya was equal parts tenderness and playfulness, he had a quick sense of humor, and a selfless nature which was surprising given the way he’d been treated in the past.

Tehya’s personality could be divided into two parts: Wolf and Vampire. As a wolf she tended to focus on the simple things like running, playing, and spending time with Lobo. As a vampire she had more complex needs and emotions. I liked the way she saw things and how she could be such a powerful being but still be so insecure about herself. She and Lobo made the perfect pair.

Forsaken by Night reminds readers why Larissa Ione is one of the best paranormal romance authors out there all while taking the time to introduce potential new fans to a strong series. Even though it was a novella I felt that Ione took the time to build a solid story with two likable characters within an already established world that could serve as a standalone.
