Brandr is on a rampage; Kyle, Jamie and Henry were kidnapped from Brandr’s house. The culprit is Fionn, who has waited six hundred years for revenge against Brandr, the vampire who turned him. Brandr soon discovers that he loves Kyle, as well as misses the nightly chaos created by his nest of recently turned vampires. Brandr also discovers that his bond with Tyler has been broken.

Unbound: Bonded II is part of the Bonded series. The well-written plot is a romantic comedy. The setting is Los Angeles. The characters are believable. Brandr is a thousand year old no-kill vampire, whose former life was a Viking raider and now Brandr is a romance author. Kyle is a rent boy rescued by Brandr. Jamie is a computer programmer. Henry teaches Yoga. Brandr did not realize how lonely he was before Kyle, Jamie and Henry entered his life; now he is determined to get them back. Kyle, Jamie and Henry each love Brandr in their own way; moreover, they are happy living with Brandr. Fionn seems incapable of creating a new life for himself. Fionn prefers to wallow in desolation rather than move on with his vampire life. The interactions between the characters are expressive, with a hint of intimacy. The creative Jay Lygon has produced an enjoyable, as well as hilariously entertaining, story.
