Review: Binding the Shadows by Jenn Bennett

Publication Date: 5/28/2014
Series: Arcadia Bell Series #3
Rating: 4 Stars 

Official Blurb:

In the third book in this beloved and “riveting” (Romantic Times) urban fantasy series, demon-friendly tiki bar owner Arcadia Bell discovers more about her own evolving, and possibly destructive, magical abilities when her bar is the target of a demonic crime wave.

Renegade mage and bartender Arcadia Bell has had a rough year, but now the door to her already unstable world is unhinging. When a citywide crime wave erupts, Cady's demon-friendly tiki bar is robbed by Earthbounds wielding surreal demonic abilities that just flat-out shouldn't exist. With the help of her devilishly delicious boyfriend, Lon Butler, Cady sets out to find the people who wronged her—but her targets aren't the only ones experiencing unnatural metamorphoses. Can Cady track down the monsters responsible before the monster inside herdestroys everything—and everyone—she loves? If she survives this adventure, one thing is certain: it's last call for life as she knows it


O.m.g… I think my Nook  melted while reading Binding the Shadows!!! It’s almost automatic for me to just know that with each book the series will trump how good the previous book was. I cannot say this enough. The Arcadia Bells series is by far one of the best Urban Fantasy series I’ve ever had the pleasure reading. One of the best things going for this series is that the power couple is a solidified family unit. I love drama between couples in a great story, but AB’s steady and secured family life is almost a breath of fresh air for me. Cady and Lon’s life are complicated enough with the happenings of the outside world. Especially in BTS, Lon’s ex mother and sister-in-law pay their yearly family visit along with a surprise visitor. Cady’s power base continues to expand. I will say this.. the ending cliff hanger.. I DID NOT see that coming at all. I honestly just stared at my nook in frustration because Cady’s story was about to go bat shit crazy. Going into the final book of the series, I am quite curious as to how Jenn Bennett will wrap up her story. Bennett knows how to pack the punches and leave the reader in shock and awe. Come on book #4!!!!
