I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Bound by Vengeance.
Sadie has found the resolve to fight the man who caused so much pain in her life. Her tentative alliance with the HCA underground gives her the resources to train both her body and Talent for when she comes face to face with her grandfather.
Bound by Loss.
Being separated from her friends at St Vincent’s is harder than she could have ever realized and it doesn’t help that Kian has withdrawn from her as well. With help from a new friend, Sadie uncovers more about her past and that someone close to her has been keeping secrets from Sadie her entire life.
Bound by Fear.
Tragedy strikes close to home, giving a longstanding enemy, one desperate and willing to do anything to have Sadie on their side, an opportunity to arise. Allies and friends come together to stand against evil, but at a terrible cost. Sadie’s history and future collide while the world is thrown into chaos.
Sadie must overcome or forever be Bound.

 In ” An Oyster Shell- This book will suck you in! It blurs the line between reality and fiction the story becomes very real to you.

The Pearls – I liked the previous book in this series, but I felt like the author kicked it up a notch in this book. I felt the author had more of a grasp on her writing style and voice. It was more commanding. I liked it a lot. Kudos to her for growing as an author.

The thing that appealed to me the most about this book is how the author wove the tale in a way that you could suspend belief for a bit. While I was reading this book I was expecting Caeliens to come walking by at any minute. The descriptors of the characters are what build this world in your mind. I especially liked the touch of skin descriptions and hair color. There was some crazy hair colors in this book!

Holy mother of cliff hangers batman. You get to the last page and its like:


I’m not often shocked by endings but I was here. It was a good ending. Using cliff hangers can be iffy, but it worked in this book.I really hope the author has the third book right around the corner. I might die in anticipation of it!

The Sand – There were a handful of typos. Could use one good proof-reading.
