Bind the Soul (Steel & Stone #2) by Annette Marie 

The first rule for an Apprentice Consul is simple: Don’t get involved with daemons. Well, Piper is planning to break that rule again — big time.

After a near-deadly scandal with the Sahar Stone, she has the chance to return to the only life she’s ever wanted. All she has to do to keep her Apprenticeship is forget about Ash and Lyre. Ash might be enigmatic and notoriously lethal, and Lyre might be as sinfully irresistible as he is irritating, but they’re not bad for a couple of daemons.

There’s just one problem: Ash is missing.

Really, she shouldn’t risk her future for him. He lied. He betrayed her. But he saved her life, damn it. Wherever he is, he’s in trouble, and if she doesn’t save his sorry butt, who will? But with every dangerous secret she unravels, each one darker than the last, she slips deeper into Ash’s world — a world with no escape for either of them.

BIND THE SOUL is the second book in the Steel & Stone series.

4.5 to 5 Stars!

The second instalment of Steel & Stone series.

Piper’s story continuous with more of her breaking the rules to becoming an  Apprentice Consul. Atta girl! 😉

After surviving the whole Sahar incident in the first book, we also learned that Ash, the hot and mysterious draconian daemon,  is missing.  Piper, knowing Ash is definitely in trouble…  will do everything to bring him back. Well, Ash did, in fact, saved her life numerous times. And who could forget their epic kiss?! That was one my top most favourite scene in the first book.

So…..  with Lyre’s help,  Piper’s mission is to find Ash and save him wherever he may be. And we all know the most likely place where Ash would be… That would be with Samael, the ruthless warlord of the Hades in the underworld!

Once again, Ms. Annette Marie takes us to another heart pumping, action-packed, fast-paced, mind numbing, romantic and fun  adventure! It was easy to be caught up in the story, besides the most excellent writing, and the unique and fabulous storyline, I really didn’t have to wait long for the sequel to come out. Kudos to the author for not making her fans wait too long. 😉

All the lead characters in this series are adorable!

I get to know more about Ash. If I loved him in the first book, I love him even more so here. Although, Piper and Ash were not able to top that unforgettable epic kiss,  they did still have their moments, yes I said moments with an “s”! And I find it just  as hot and intense! 😉 I do want more of that… well, who wouldn’t! I love Ash and Piper together obviously! And no, there is no love triangle.  😉

Piper is one of my favourite book heroine. She is fun, sweet, adorable, brave and she kicks ass!

Lyre, with what scenes he had here, is still ever so charming and funny.

There were dark scenes….  there were surprises…  and some stressful ones… But,  all of that could not compete to that very intense and stunning climatic action scene in the end.

I loved how it ended, it does go so fast… I am dying to read the next book, just dying.

I am curious about Raum. He is also a draconian like Ash, but he is mighty loyal to Samael. I’m curious about Seiya too. I thought she would make an awesome heroine too! Hint hint? 😀
