Brand new scenes, additional points of view and 35K extra words all breathe new life into the first series ever published by USA Today Bestselling Author Shannon Mayer.* "My name is Mara, and I want desperately to become a mother." All of my dreams were dashed when the world was promised hope but instead became a place of danger, death . . . and monsters. Nevermores - a human, but feral and lethal creatures with a thirst for flesh, have arisen from the ashes of human hope. Now co-inhabitants in this new world, I am gaining ground in my understanding of them just as I am forced to face a new threat from the local militia. Led by a man with a taste for torture and a love of suffering, Sebastian and I are confronted with the seemingly impossible obstacle of escape. Caged and kept from our allies, our opportunities for freedom dwindle. There is only one way to save us both. I am forced to unearth and embrace the dark side of my heart. I must decide who is the more dangerous enemy; the Nevermores or what remains of mankind. I am bound to fight as though I am one of the monsters I hoped I’d never become.
Four Boundless Stars
I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Bound picks up immediately where Sundered left off so for those of you, like me, screamed at the end of Sundered because there were no more pages to flip we get our answer of the choice Mara makes. Now this is a 3-part series that must be read in order and this review will blow the ending of book 1 for you so STOP NOW!!! You’ve been warned SPOILERS ahead!
Thank you Shannon! Thank you! Mara chose love! Mara and Sebastian’s story is one of those tales that true love really does conquer all. Even a drug that turns you feral to the point of cannibalistic can’t defeat true love. Yet Mara and Sebastian aren’t finished being tested. When they are captured by rogue band of paramilitary things go downhill fast. Mara’s love for Sebastian is put to the ultimate test and her life along with Sebastian’s and their unborn child are put on the line by a crazed power hungry nut job.
I didn’t love book two as much as I instantly fell in love with book one. Not really sure why. Mara continues to grow into a strong, resourceful and dare I say almost Kick ass chick, well, almost, she is getting close. The relationship between her and Sebastian is one I love and I can’t wait to read the third installment, Dauntless.
