Book review: Demon Bound: Volume 1 (Marris and Wade) by David Parkland

Good morning all

I have once again finished yet another fantastic book. This time it was David Parkland’s Demon Bound. From the very first page of this book I knew it was going to be a wonderfully charming read, and I was not disappointed in the slightest.

The story follows the adventures of Marris and Wade as they travel the land in search of their fortune. Wade is a natural salesman with a flare for showmanship, but when inexplicable things start to happen, we are led to wonder if perhaps there is more to events than a silver tongue. And then of course there is the matter of mister ….erm…”Long.” yes, sorry, him. Although since no one else can remember his name, I am sure I can be forgiven. Whist Marris and Wade are on their adventure, so too is he, but his adventure is far from light-hearted, his job is far darker, more dangerous, than any would realise.

I found this book to be well written, and able to provide fun glimpses into the characters’ past, allowing us to understand fully the events which led them to be where they are today. From war, to the ferrying of goods, we learn everything we need to about the characters and have a lot of fun along the way. The author, much like Wade himself, has a fantastic knack for spinning a tale, and one that makes this book difficult to put down.  I really enjoyed the twists, and surprises woven into the plot, and I am sincerely looking forward to the next one. It’s definitely one for the wish list.
