Bestseller Vincent returns to a world of syndicates, bindings, magic, and blood in the engaging sequel to Blood Bound. Korinne “Kori” Daniels is a Traveler who can walk through shadows to different locations. Kori used to be a trusted bodyguard to Jake Tower, the head of the Tower syndicate, but after Jake was shot on her watch, he tortured her for weeks. Now she has only one way to protect herself and her sister, Kenley, from Jake’s continued wrath: get Ian Holt, a strong Blinder who can call up darkness, to willingly sign with Tower’s syndicate. But Ian has his own secret mission: kill Kenley, a Binder who magically links people to service for Tower and who may have bound Ian’s brother against his will. Alternating first-person chapters offer insight into both Kori and Ian and their complex emotions and motivations. After a slow start, the story builds to an action-packed conclusion. Agent: Merrilee Heifetz, Writers House. (June)
