Brimstone Bound (Firebrand #1), by Helen Harper | Book Review

Welcome to Adele Is Reading.
Today I have my book review of:

Brimstone Bound, by Helen Harper.

Brimstone Bound is the first book in the Firebrand series.

TW: Throat Slitting, Self Harm mentions, Murder mentions, Stalking mentions, Blood & Gore mentions, Murder, Drugging, Hanging, Strangulation mentions, Suicide mentions.

**If you have any sort of trigger for the above mentions, I HIGHLY suggest you don’t read Brimstone Bound. The details pertaining to this book, the scenes that included these, you DO NOT want to read.**

A werewolf killer. A paranormal murder. How many times can Emma Bellamy cheat death?

I’m one placement away from becoming a fully fledged London detective. It’s bad enough that my last assignment before I qualify is with Supernatural Squad. But that’s nothing compared to what happens next.

Brutally murdered by an unknown assailant, I wake up twelve hours later in the morgue – and I’m very much alive. I don’t know how or why it happened. I don’t know who killed me. All I know is that they might try again.

Werewolves are disappearing right, left and centre.

A mysterious vampire seems intent on following me everywhere I go.

And I have to solve my own vicious killing. Preferably before death comes for me again.

Hello lovelies! Welcome to my May 2020 Wrap Up post.

Hey friends! I know my May 2020 Wrap Up is coming to you super late, (we’re already 2 weeks into JUNE, omg). I just wanted to say that I hope you and yours are doing well. If you’ve lost anyone close to you related to the global pandemic or otherwise, I am so sorry for your loss.

Did you get around to reading anything in May?

I actually partook in the Sea-MAYden-athon held by Leelyn, and Mir this year. It’s the first of the (hopefully) annual Sea-MAYden-athon and I’m quite happy with how I did! The participants could keep track of what they read and omg it was more fun than I expected it to be.

Truth be told, I started out strong (yay) and then I started lagging behind once I put out my first week of tally points. I think next year I’m just going to have to, I don’t know, keep my points to myself until the final days of the readathon.

So while I didn’t keep track of my readings within the readathon, I did keep track of everything I read here within my May 2020 Wrap Up!
