Tales of the Latter Kingdoms can be compared to fairy tales.
For "Binding Spell", as a reader, you can pity/relate to Lark. The heroine has a forbidden talent which most kingdoms would destroy. Unfortunately for her she is kidnapped by mistaken identity and her captor wishes her hand in marriage.
It is a quick read and there are some unexpected minor character developments.
Fans of Caroline Courtney may like this book if they are also into more "middle ages" + magic setting. Pope's plots remind me of her. This is the second book from this author I've enjoyed.
Pope has written an excellent story. Her world-building is strongly drawn; the secondary characters who inhabit the world are real and likeable. The villain is "villainous" which can create its own difficulties for a writer.
Quibbles: the climax rushes by us--I wished for something as drawn out as Briggs' HOBS BARGAIN. I wanted a bit more heat between H & h.
I will buy Pope again.

Had plenty of potential but ruined by the constant prattle and tedious internal monologues.
The Beginning was 5* material. Heroine appears strong and tries to escape hero subtly using magic. However, as we move on towards the middle, she becomes annoying and the author goes on about the castle life, silly squabbles relating to this farmer or that etc that it did become tedious.
Also, the heroine's constant "I'm not a great lady" and "I wasn't brought up a great lady" and irritating observations meant I began skipping loads of pages.
It appeared as though the author lost steam and began adding loads of page filler to add bulk. The ending was a massive anti-climax.
Overall, not a bad book and kept me entertained but was annoying at times.
