Genevieve Drake is going to hell. And no one can stop her.

She must find the soul collector, Lethe, and enter the deepest, darkest level of the underworld. No one has ever returned alive from the belly of a soul collector, but she will let nothing stop her from going after the precious treasure Lethe stole from her.

Even as she defeats demon spawn and foul creatures of the underworld, strengthening her Vessel power, she still may not be able to save the treasure she loves most in the world.

Meanwhile, the full prophecy hurtles toward the night of the Blood Moon when the Great War between heaven and hell will begin. And demon prince Bamal has a secret weapon. When he reveals it--and guardian angel Thomas reveals his own hidden agenda--Gen may not have the strength to resist the temptation to fall into darkness, forsaking the fate of the world for her broken heart.

“Remember my sweet girl, even broken things can be beautiful.”

Bound in Black by Juliette Cross is the book where all that you thought you knew gets turned inside out. As the final book in The Vessel Trilogy, Bound in Black wraps up Genevieve’s journey in discovering her power as a Vessel and culminates in an all-out showdown on the moors of Dartmoor.

Like most readers, if you’ve read Sealed in Sin then you and I both went into Bound in Black just like Genevieve: with hopeful determination. That emotion in Genevieve changed to what I would describe as fierce determination as more of her path is uncovered. There is so much plot that is uncovered. Every bread crumb that was hinted at in the previous two books are gloriously exposed and used in a way that made my brain in explode in wonder. Like most heroic journeys—it’s always darkest before the dawn.

“Every mark on your body is beautiful. It is sacrifice. It is love. So I forbid you to look down on yourself.”

Bound in Black is a seriously stellar book. The storytelling is top notch and is chock full of emotions. I honestly couldn’t get enough of it. I’ve said it multiple times: Genevieve is such an amazing heroine and character overall. Her inner strength, physical strength, determination, and capability for love and trust knows no bounds. All those traits become abundantly apparent throughout the entirety of Bound in Black.

Truly, there are so many amazing and vital components that happen in this finale that honestly any summarizing would honestly jeopardize the reading experience. Genevieve’s journey, the deals she makes in order to save the ones she loves is all done in the name of love and the trust that she has in herself. Bound in Black isn’t a finale in the true sense of the word. I would say it’s more a resting point and perhaps even a starting point for more stories in Juliette Cross’ catalogue of stories.
