Leo promised to keep Aaron and Kaleb forever. Yet he’s left them with nothing more than a note with instructions to obey the commands of another god? A god who has the key to Kaleb’s collar. A god who will tell them nothing about what’s happened to Leo or where he’s gone.
Kaleb and Aaron both fear the worst. That Leo has not abandoned them but left them because he won’t be coming back. Not because he doesn’t want to, but because he can’t.
Too many have died and the god-son is growing stronger. With no way for any god to track it, Leo has only one choice left. Fight fire with fire.
Or in this case Chimera against Chimera.
The problem is Leo has always maintained control of the beast within him. Using its natural senses to do what no other can. In order to stand a chance at tracking and killing the god-son Leo must give the Chimera within complete control.
And the Chimera might not let him return if he does.
I’m a bit backlogged posting my reviews. This one is about two weeks overdue! I wish I had posted it sooner because I really really really want people to read this series if they haven’t already. Hopefully, my gushing will help you with your purchasing decision.
Because of my overwhelming procrastination, it has taken me entirely too long to write this review.
I think part of it is because I’m still in denial. I’ve read a few books since Bound Gods 4, but it took me a while to find something to keep the momentum of my book high going. I entirely blame A.W. since this series ruined me (in a delightfully delicious way of course).
A.W. went to town in this installment. As we know, I’m a stupid fangirl over the Bound Gods books. In a way, I was excited for the final chapter but also sad as well because it would mean the end of Kaleb and Leo’s tale.
In Book Three, we’re introduced to Aaron, a doxie who is a bit of a pain slut. I wasn’t a fan of Aaron. I was severely upset with A.W. for adding a third body into the mix, but it worked. It worked so hard and in Bound Gods Four it really really really works. We find Leo and the Chimera on the hunt for the Godson. The monster that’s been hunting and killing doxies and who’s also responsible for scarring Aaron for life.
Leo has to finally own up to his feelings for his doxies, especially, Kaleb. Oh, the tension. So. much. tension. Well, not between Aaron and Kaleb I swear those boys have the libidos of bunnies. But Leo is struggling because he’s never had to worry about developing feelings for his doxies. He trained, they served, the end. When the Chimera/Leo realizes his doxies are in danger, and he’s the only one who can save them, all hell breaks loose, and boy is it glorious.
My only complaint? A little less time spent with Aaron and Kaleb. I know things had to happen in a particular order for the climax (haaaa) to occur but after awhile I wanted to throw cold water on those two. That aside, this was a stellar conclusion to a fabulous series. While this signals the end of this particular trio’s tale, I’m looking forward to seeing what A.W. does with the rest of the series. Will we get Priest’s backstory? I certainly hope so! Pretty please!!!
Warning, this series isn’t for those who aren’t into the deeper aspects of BDSM. Translation: If you can’t deal with some torturous shit, this probably isn’t the series for you but goodness is it yummy!
