by Ren Pierce
Gale is many things. A warrior, a knight, a drinker of blood. He’s walked the earth for centuries, fighting off the fae with his fellow knights. Gale is a master of the sword, of flying under the radar, and feeling very, very sorry for what he’s done. Damning the king he loved and the brothers he’d sworn to support isn’t something one can just move on from. Gale is many things, but pure isn’t one of them. He stopped being pure when he stopped being Sir Galahad.
But centuries spent fighting and brooding can’t prepare him for the reappearance of an old enemy. Caught in the cross hairs is Thomas, an impossibly attractive Arthurian scholar. Gale’s pledge of chastity is put to the test as he tries to protect Thomas. Can Gale remain true to his vow as he strives to make up for his past mistakes?
Is honor worth holding on to at the cost of the man he loves?
Vampires? Check. Gay knights? Double Check. Dark Situations? Yep, those too. It is intended for mature audiences. ( Blurb courtesy of Goodreads)

I absolutely love a story that has a full cast of characters. The book can be about bad boy bikers, mafia brothers, a sports team, a wolf pack, or just about anything where the cast is like a family and it is either already part of a series, or promises to be one.
Honor Bound is one such book, and I cannot tell you just how much I enjoyed this story. It was full of action from beginning to end. The originality of the storyline is sublime. I adored the main MCs, Gale and Thomas and cheered for them all through the book.
The secondary characters are ones that stay with you, and I am looking forward to a particular fae getting his just due in future books.
I loved Pierce’s take on vampirism, and I look forward to seeing how everything pans out. Linking vampires with King Arthur and his knights might sound cheesy, but I assure you, it is anything but. Deep seeded issues of prejudice, ignorance, bigotry, superstition and fear of change make this book so much more. Just…MORE MORE MORE!💖
This was a very good start for a new author. I look forward to seeing where the future takes them, on their writing journey.
