Genevieve Drake is on a dangerous mission—to find the soul collector, Lethe, and enter the deepest, darkest level of the underworld, where no one has ever gone into and returned. But nothing can prevent her from going after the precious treasure Lethe stole from her.

Genevieve endures challenge after challenge against demon spawn and foul creatures while there, and each triumph strengthens her Vessel power, leading toward full awakening, at which time she will become invincible against the hosts of darkness. But when an old enemy makes a surprising appearance, she is tested to the point of breaking and risks remaining in this dark abyss forever.

When Prince Bamal finally reveals their secret weapon, will Genevieve have the strength to survive? Even more, when her guardian angel, Thomas, reveals his sinister secret, will she finally fall into darkness and forsake the fate of the world for her broken heart.

Bound In Black is book three in The Vessel Trilogy by Juliette Cross. Where do I start with this book? From the first page of the first book I have been completely in love... ...more

By Naomi 🐨 August 27, 2015

What an awesome series this has been! You simply can't go wrong with anything that Juliette Cross writes!!!! I have thoroughly enjoyed the previous two books, but Bound in Black really rounds everything off nicely. The devotion and love between Gen and Jude is beautiful. I also loved the epilogue... ...more

Holy freaking Hades!!! This author is an evil mastermind! I could hate her if I didnt love her so dang much right now!

I just never knew this series was going to go in this direction when I started. Every step of the way I kept looking for where the next step was going to take me. Some I had a tin... ...more

(This review covers all three books in The Vessel Trilogy, and fear not, no spoilers included.)

Loved loved LOVED this trilogy, and once again Juliette Cross displays her mad skills in building a believable urban fantasy world and creating characters who each play an important role regardless of t... ...more

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 lo... ...more

5 - "Damn, woman. You have some serious balls." Stars!

This is a dual review for the second and third books in The Vessel Trilogy; Sealed in Sin & Bound in Black. I decided to do it this way, because basically both books are equally awesome, and I can say very little about them for fear of giv... ...more

Mon avis en Français

My English review

The end of the last volume left our heroine in a very difficult situation with the Judes disappearance in hell and I admit that I was curious to see how far our heroine would be willing to go to save him. One thing is certain, she does not keep many lim... ...more

By Beth May 06, 2015

Cross once again takes us on an amazing adventure to the bowels of hell and back in Bound in Black.

Gen Drake will stop at nothing to save the one she loves from the soul collector, Lethe. Even if it means making a deal with the devil, or should I say demons. But it isnt about her anymore, she has... ...more

5 Stars - 3 Flames

Are you freakin' kidding me right now? Did this Trilogy just come to an end? WHHHHHHHHY???? My Lord, or Angels, this was jam packed with everything . And I mean EVERYTHING. So much so that I really don't even know where to start, so excuse me if my review is jumbled and all ove... ...more

By Sylvia January 26, 2016

I could not put this book down and read it pretty much in one sitting.

If you thought Genevieve was bad-ass in the other two books, then think again. In Bound in Black she is nothing but steadfast, brave, courageous and absolutely one kick-ass protagonist if I ever saw one. Blindly she forged thr... ...more

By Sapphyria August 01, 2017

Of the books in the trilogy, Bound in Black is my absolute favorite (they are all great but book 3 is superb). The conclusion to the series is deep and emotional. Juliette Cross takes Genevieve and Jude to an all new level, one that had me weeping in sadness and for joy. During all of the emotion... ...more

By Stacy July 20, 2015

I am super thankful that all the books in The Vessel Trilogy released in the same year, having to wait longer for all the books would have been SO hard. After reading SEALED IN SIN I needed to get my hands on BOUND IN BLACK immediately as the cliffhanger had my brain scrambling way too much. It w... ...more

By Mirabella January 27, 2016

wow, what a fantastic conclusion to this wonderful trilogy! I want more! I think I have found a new favorite author, I have to check out all of her other books right now. The only little thing of this trilogy that annoyed me: some facts were so very predictable. The whole story is told from h's P... ...more

By Cheryl March 28, 2016

Wow! What a way to finish a series! Plenty of action and romance with everything wrapped up nicely. I loved Jude and Genevieve, and how their relationship has grown.
This certainly won't be the last book that I read by Juliette Cross - she knows how to weave a great story with memorable characters... ...more

By Booknista July 22, 2015

Bound in Black is the third and final book in The Vessel Trilogy by Juliette Cross.

Warning: Contains malicious demons, sinister spawn, and a vengeful heroine with plans to send them all back to burning hell.

Oh yes. I like this warning. #BringOnTheDemons.

First a confession: I have not read the fir... ...more

By Erin August 06, 2017

Bound in Black is the third book in Cross's Vessel Trilogy and is an extremely fitting end to this amazing series. I recommend reading this series in order as there are many references and plot twists that payoff throughout this book. I liken it to the same feeling you get when you read the final... ...more

By Sheena July 25, 2015

I needed this like I need food...

and water.....

and possibly oxygen....

In Sealed in Sin, I was soooo mad at Gen I could spit, but equally proud that she emerged from her FOLLY a warrior hell bent on getting her man and ensuring Light prevails!

*bounces in chair*

Aside from being deeply sensual and e... ...more

By KathyAnne January 18, 2016

I finished this a while back but just haven't had time to write a review... so, I'll just say very quickly that I was intrigued with book one, blown away by book two and well, totally invested in the finale with book three. :) Great PR series and an author that I've grown to really love as one of... ...more

By Rhenna September 17, 2015

Juliette really wrapped up The Vessel Trilogy with a bang! As with the rest of her works, this installment was beautifully written with exceptional description and witty dialogue. Not one detail (that I can think of, anyway) was left unaccounted for, and there were more than enough "wow, didn't s... ...more

By Toula October 23, 2016

Fantastic positive story . Shows what a great true love is . That there is no ends and bounds that one will do to get back their true love . Don't give up and go into hell and do everything to get the person back . Something to read and imagine when the Great War between the fallen angels and the... ...more

By Bexa November 26, 2016

Honestly, I enjoyed this trilogy but really felt that the last book fell a bit flat at the end. It really feels like there should be another series or a continuation of some kind. It really didn't finish.

That is the only thing that let this down. I needed more of a completion. ...more

By Julie (Jewlsbookblog) July 23, 2018

The startling twists this story took blew me away! Genevieve was a strong heroine who held her own through out the series. Dommiel is definitely my favorite character, rivaling Jude for attention. But seriously, I wasnt expecting the turn of events! Fantastic reading! ...more

By Cherie October 12, 2018

I've said this before but I feel it bears repeating, if you love Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter world, then you will definitely enjoy this series!! The similarities are similar enough to get you hooked and the differences and Juliette's unique touches will keep you coming back for more!!!

By Suzana October 28, 2015

This author has an incredibly vivid imagination. I'm always amazed by her ability to create an entire alternate world with an array of characters. What's fascinating here is the underworld of demons and demon hunters interwoven into the real world. From New Orleans to England and to a remote cott... ...more

By Tammy July 13, 2016

Malicious demons and a vengeful heroine!

Bound in Black is the third book in The Vessel Trilogy by Juliette Cross.

Jude & Gen make an awesome team and are deeply connected and devoted to each other, which is a good thing when it comes to destroying evil demons! Gen is one seriously bada$s Vesse... ...more

About the author

Juliette Cross

Juliette calls lush, moss-laden Louisiana home where the landscape curls into her imagination, creating mystical settings for her stories. She has a B.A. in creative writing from Louisiana State University, a M.Ed. in gifted education, and was privileged to study under the award-winning author Ernest J. Gaines in grad school. Her love of mythology, legends, and art serve as constant inspiration for her works. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance--brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.
