When you see this book for first time, it can look like any other young adult book; A normal teenager girl who discovers a really dark secret and now she needs to adapt to that secret, which is bigger than she could have ever imagined. But that is when the story gets much better.
First, the reader will find an amazing world full of myths and incredible creatures, so well done and so well created, that it's realistic, even though it's a supernatural book. I must say that I really enjoyed the way the author told the story where all the pieces fit perfectly, so there is no loose ends, and no inconsistencies.
Second, the author did a great job creating not only the story but also the characters, characters very well developed. I really liked Kira, she is a really intelligent girl, always willing to sacrifice herself for her best friend Lydia. Lydia is so nice and so sweet, I loved the strong Altaria, and what can I say about Octavion? Even though I didn't like him too much at the beginning, I ended liking him a lot.
So, what can I say? I really enjoyed this book, from the beginning to the end. I just couldn't put it down until I had read it completely. Now I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Broken.
So guys, if you haven't read Bound yet, and if you are fan of Young Adults books with good stories, full of action, romance and supernatural topics... I recommend you to read it. You won't regret it.
As for the ending let me say this if you want a conclusion this book will not provide even the smallest. I realize this is the intro for the next book, however, it doesn't make me want to purchase the next book in the least for fear I will have spent my precious reading time involved in a story that leaves me unsatisfied.
Good luck to the author. It is a good story but not a series I will be waiting on.
You meet Lydia's big brother, Octavion, early on in the story. He gives new meaning to the term "over protective". He's pushy, forceful, stubborn and abrasive. But, you also get to see his softer side. He can be gentle, caring and moved to tears. As you delve further into the story you come to understand why that is. There are good reasons for a lot of his behaviors and reactions, but oftentimes he can't get a good grasp on controlling them. He has great chemistry with Kira. There's a powerful attraction and intensity between them. Their exchanges range from tender to volatile. They have some pretty great scenes together when they're alone.
I'm not sure I ever really warmed up to Kira, even at the end. Her behavior felt inconsistent throughout the book. She starts off weak and helpless, but gradually finds her footing. As she finds confidence, self-worth and her backbone, it's refreshing, entertaining and exciting. When she begins to stand up for herself and take charge of the direction her life will take, you root for her. But, I felt like I got some whiplash as she flipped back and forth between being brave and being a coward, over and over again. I don't fault her for being afraid of different characters or situations, it was the behavior she displayed that perturbed me. One minute she's pointing a weapon at someone and the next she's cowering on the floor like a kitten and can't make eye contact with them. I have to give her credit for her heroics and bravery, when she showed it. I owe her that. She's someone you'd definitely want on your side.
I was delighted with the author's descriptions. It made BOUND a light, easy flowing read. She would set up a scene, describe a few things, then let the reader's imagination do the rest. I make mention of this because there are times I'm reading a book and things are going wonderfully, but then the author decides to use 5 paragraphs to describe a drop of dew on a leaf. At these times, I find that I've stopped paying attention, that I was distracted right out of the story by the sheer amount of description, that although my eyes kept up their side-to-side motion, I quit comprehending what I was reading and checked out. That was certainly not the case with this book.
