Bound in Black by Juliette Cross (The Vessel Trilogy, #3)

Bound in Black (The Vessel Trilogy)Genevieve Drake has become a force to be reckoned with and she is on a mission to save the man she loves. And. She. Will. Not. Be. Stopped. If ever a heroine has grown into herself, her powers and her belief in the only thing to do, it is Genevieve and if you liked her before, you are going to love her now!

Juliette Cross’ BOUND IN BLACK proves that, yes, this series can get even better! Genevieve has a secret and like a mama bear, she will protect that secret with all she has, but she also has a mission of both the heart and of the destiny of the world that will send her into the bowels of Hell, against known and unknown foes alike. She will be brought to her knees with grief, her power will be tested and her faith in those around her will be shaken, but this is a Vessel who cannot fail, there is too much riding on her shoulders…Can she truly bear the weight of what she will endure? Will she come out unscathed? Will her mission be one of rescue and triumph or will it become a nightmare she may never recover from?

When you are deceived by your guardian angel, your true love is missing and demons are knocking at the gates and a poisonous truth is revealed, can you find that last strand of inner strength to push on? This will be Genevieve's greatest test. Will the light of good be a strong enough beacon to guide her through the stygian darkness of evil?

Whoa! Start to finish madness, chaos and turmoil, yet author Juliette Cross brings it all home in a riveting kaleidoscope of action, while never forgetting the romance that has bound this series together! Incredible scenes that come alive, characters that I almost forgot weren’t real and amazing storytelling, it’s all here in the Vessel Trilogy!
