Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name.
Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become.
As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?

When I first listened I thought "uh oh, another dud" but thankfully I have a personal deal to give every book 1 chapter or 10 pages, whichever is longer. This book then hooked me and had some fun twists. Ending is harsh!! Gotta get second in series :)
"Wonderful narration for an awesome story!"
Absolutely loved Bound by Duty by Stormy Smith! It had intrigue, romance, self-discovery and lots of action! I devoured this book and my only issue is that it ended!! Thankfully I have Bound by Spells ready but I know waiting for the 3rd book is going to kill me!
"A book with no common sense."
It made me confused. I just find it hard to believe that a young adult would make every bad choice they could that often. Its like sticking your hand in the fire and then wonder why you got burnt.
The book started out fine the turned into a book with no common sense. Or maybe I am wrong, but the main protagonist just spends the hole book making all of the wrong decisions.
I just don't think a 18 year old would be acting like a 8 year old. Not to mention the book is highly predictable. I new what was going to happen way before it happened. The book played like a bad horror movie.
this book kept me interested the entire time it wasn't boring or annoying it was fresh and kept me interested
"Rinse and repeat"
First book in the Bound series.
The book starts well but gets bogged down with the protagonist doing the same thing over and over again. I might have liked it more if she had either been aware of this or had learned a little more about herself each time. Also, the plot twist near the end was poorly executed as was the ending which is a cliff hanger.
I liked Bethany better than the protagonist. It must be her southern charm.
"This book is on fire"
I can't help but love a good, sarcastic, fun heroine and story full of Magic and secrets, and you'll love it too. The narrator does a great job distinguishing between all the characters and you'll be seeing yourself with laughter, that is when you aren't holding your breath or crying.
"Strength of character. Perfection"
Amount my top favs
I live the romantic story but also the plot
My favourite character performed was B
Absolutely couldn't get enough.
"Loved this story"
I loved this story. Off I go to find the next volume. Great story. Looking forward to what comes next.
While some main elements of the story were predictable, it was so well written that I couldn't put it down. I had to know when and how it would happen.
"Loved the story."
I liked the story but hate the cliff hanger aspect. Not buying the next book.
