  1. Okay people hold onto your hats My mind has been blown away on this one I got this book before you did because I am cool like that Okay, fine Sorry for the snarkiness My alter ego comes out at night and that is when I am writing this Sorry, but this one is a little long I really liked the first one, and generally the first book in a series is the best for me Not so this time around Honestly, this book was a good two and a half times better than the first one And that is saying a lot because the [...]

  2. Check out my review of Bound by Spells by Stormy Smith at Books Equal Awesomeness Last year, I read Bound by Duty and it was freaking fantastic This series isn t really known about, but I think that everyone should read it This book was just as great as the first one Bound by Spells is from a dual point of view, so in this book, we got to read what happens from Aiden s point of view, and boy was I happy about that Aiden s perspective was really important in this book because he undergoes a lot o [...]

  3. Originally posted on my blog Miranda s Book BlogThis is the second book in The Bound series and it was equally as magical and suspenseful as the first one The plot was absolutely amazing, then low and behold a whole new twist gets thrown into the mix I honestly didn t think the plot could get any better, then BAM I m blown away In the past I haven t been a big fan of alternate POV, but I think it may be my new favorite thanks to the author Stormy Smith Each POV was perfectly balanced, I felt lik [...]

  5. Pulled from the blog joint review with my blogging partner in crime, Jennifer original review with extras can be viewed here bookwormcoalition.wordpress.cI feel like any book starts off with a line like, I woke up naked again is going to be something special I feel as though I needed to be there for him, just can t have him waking up all naked with no one around I volunteer as tribute wait, wrong book, it s okay, I ll still watch over him In this case, I was definitely right Bound by Spells took [...]

  6. An excellent follow up to Bound by Duty This second installment picks up right where the first left off I was fortunate enough to have this next book handy, otherwise the cliffy from book 1 may have been a lot painful I always appreciate when the sequel just gets right to the point, no dawdling or lengthy recaps, just a head first dive into the heart of the story So major kudos to Stormy for that I absolutely LOVED the dual POV Hearing Aiden s thoughts and following his story line as he struggl [...]

  7. This is one of those books that when I finally got the chance to sit down and read it, I didn t want to put it down I should be studying for a major test so I can graduate, but this clearly wouldn t be put off First, I LOVE how Stormy switched between Amelia s and Aiden s POV I loved hearing what was going on from both sides of the situation, let s start with Amelia.The book starts with Amelia saying an incredibly heartbreaking goodbye to Aiden, my heart seriously broke the first time I read tha [...]

  10. This series continues to captivate and surprise The Queen Just when you might feel a little bit of compassion for her, bam Right out the window This book is told from Aiden and Amelia s perspectives There is so much that goes on that you find it hard to put the book down Next book can t come soon enough.

  11. 4.5 stars Another beta read There was so much I loved about this book, but I think the thing that really raised it above the first book is the addition of Aidan s POV And not just b c we all love Aidan b c come on, we all do But the nature of the story as it left off in Bound By Duty demanded that 2 separate stories be told, and it would have been a terrible loss to not have that other half of the story I ended up learning so much about the prophecy, the AniMage s, the history, just from what A [...]

  12. Bound by Duty, the first book of this series, was fantastic This second book, Bound by Spells Even better With the excellent writing continuing on, the storyline becoming deeper and intense, and characters that continue to grow, evolve and surprise us there s no sopho slump to be found here In fact, Stormy Smith has quickly found her way to the upper echelon of my favorite paranormal authors list with her enchanting stories and the ability to just snatch me out of my everyday life and set me do [...]

  14. Bound by Spells takes everything that was established in Bound by Duty and amps it up 20 notches I cannot get over the character development all around It is rare that I like a sequel better than the first book, but Bound by Spells surpasses the first for me Both Amelia and Aidan have come into themselves in a way that I never thought that was possible Julia is as evil as ever, and even her rule gets a bit of an explanation that we didn t get in the first novel This book is all about the interna [...]

I purchased this book and audiobook because I so enjoyed the first one We are drawn further into the world of Mages here We learn of the Mage magics along with the Hunters and their abilities This story is from the POV s of Aidan and Amelia Both are in different places in this book Both are learning different things Though much of what we learn here solidifies the ideas we had from book one and gives details of those impressions, along with uncovering additional troubles for Mages FULL REVIEW [...]

  24. Stormy Smith has blown my mind once again I had the pleasure of ready Bound By Duty Book 1 and absolutely loved it to pieces Bound By Spells picks up just where Bound By Duty leaves you heart broken and wanting to scream The struggle between the heart and mind is relentless What lengths would you be willing to go to in order to keep those you cared mose for in this world safe How would you cope with the reality that you have been lied to your entire life and are just a pawn in a game larger than [...]

  25. This is a interesting book Like the first I didn t really connect well with Amelia She was not a bad character but just at times distant, other times petulant and very stubborn She sometimes seemed to think she knew and was superior to others because she was the keeper.She didn t realize that people were risking everything to help her especially Micah Her sometimes indignation and disdain to him over his actions were too much at times He was going against his mom and that isn t easy This second [...]

  26. This was better than the last one and when I mean better it ll be difficult to put down the book once you ve start reading.It continues from the ending of Bound by Duty wherein Amelia left with Micah while Aidan is with Betty looking for Cole, in order to save Amelia Nothing turns out as you least expected The author will keep you guessing and the secrets that I ve been wondering from part one was mind blowing Although not all of it have been revealed yet.I m still not sure how I find Amelia, I [...]
