Summary

The gods are dying. Thane has served his goddess for thousands of lifetimes, but even he knows that time is running out. There's only one way to save her, to save all of Dweller kind, and it's a suicide mission. 

The host is a boy named Jakob. His ancient soul is one of the rare sources of power still recycling in the world of flesh. Thane has taken so many souls to his goddess, but this one could save them all. 

It's only when Thane learns the truth of the gods does he deny them their power. Souls aren't recycled. They're destroyed, and his goddess isn't a deity...she's a monster. 

Permanently melded with his human host, Thane meets his soulmate, a woman who captures his heart like his goddess never did. He'll do anything to protect her, and the gods know it. 

Indulge in the riveting new series by international best-selling author A.J. Flowers, full of norse, viking, and greco-roman myth wrapped up in a world of shifters, gods, and magic! Buy Soul Bound today!

Good performance and well written, but not my cup of tea

I think this book wasn’t my favorite partly because I’m an impatient person. It took forever for the world to be build and the plot to get started because we had to meet the main character, wait for him to find a soul to attach to, meet the gods and goddesses...it just took a while before things finally got moving. I’m a little weirded out by Jacob and Thane sharing a body, but otherwise the [good] characters were charming.
Sometimes the first book of a series feels like walking through a swamp - sticky and slow going but still adventurous - as the author gets the world and plot built and moving but the following books are where it gets really good. I’m feeling like this is one of those because this was well written and developed.

Soul Bound

I was given a free copy of this book and I'm leaving an honest and voluntary review.

I loved this book, the concept of your soul being trapped in another body, whilst trying to break free from it but being fought all the way. a battle of will to keep your soul.
The characters are great and have depth to them .
The narration is superb bringing each character into thier own and giving the unique traits.
I would most definitely recommend this 1st book and I will for sure be following the rest in this serise.

It has all the things I love and yet...

I got to listen to this book at the courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review. This story has a whole mess of things that I love! It's got magic, mythology, shifters, action, romance, drama, incredible world building, pretty much everything. I'm trying really hard to figure out why it didn't work for me.

Since this is an audiobook, I would like to say that the performance was definitely not the issue. The narration in this is excellent and engaging, although I did prefer it at a higher speed of playback. Reuben Corbet does have a slower natural cadence, but I wouldn't say that's a bad thing, I just preferred it sped up a notch. He's very expressive and does a wonderful job of voice each character, including the two voices *sharing the same body* in way that is distinct and easy to tell apart from the others.

This is a well thought out world, and a good story. However, I don't love it. It may be that this one just isn't the right book for me, that happens every once in a while, and I'm inclined to think that's the case since I can't put my finger on a specific thing that put me out of sorts with it.

The closest I can get is that the world that has been built is incredibly complex, and I definitely found it hard to insert myself into that story. This is the first book in a series, but I feel like I'm missing so much development of this universe, and being forced to jump into it head first is disorienting. It made it harder for me to connect to the characters and the action because I don't honestly fully understand the logistics of the setting.

The complexities of what makes a human and a dweller different, and how they interact with their gods was hard for me to follow because there was very little prelude or explanation of it. It's as though it's been assumed that the reader (listener) already has a clear basic understanding of the world's systems.

Again, this may just be a "me" thing, and perhaps if I had read the text I would feel differently and be able to track better with it, but it's what stands out most to me as hindering my enjoyment of it. I think the characters are great, and the action is compelling. I really like Thane and Jacob both, and through the whole thing I want them both to be ok. The way the figure out how to work together is pretty cool. I think this one just maybe wasn't for me.

Epic Story

This had the feel of an epic adventure without the length. This had a lot of myth and lore packed in. This could be a great series. I cant wait to delve further into this world. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my honest review.

Epic New SciFi Adventure!

I received this audiobook free at my request and am leaving this review voluntarily.

Soul Bound grabs you at the beginning and never lets go. The narration by Reuben Corbett is outstanding, and the adventurous tale by A.J. Flowers is one that can be enjoyed by SciFi fans of all ages. This story treads new ground in SciFi, one that is explored with great detail, and I'm very curious where Flowers will be taking it in future books. Definitely worth checking out!

Dwellers and souls

This was a unique look at souls and gods and how they exist. Thank had so much to deal with even from the very beginning and Jakob ends up being way more than Thane had ever bargained for. They both have so much to learn and some very hard truths to confront and try to figure out how to deal with these and what they want to do about what they learn. I loved how their connection formed and changed as the book progressed. I want to learn even more about the dwellers along with the gods. There was a huge cliffhanger at the end of this story and I really want to know what is going to happen next. Thane and Jakob need to pick up the pieces and figure out what to do. There were some amazing twists and turns in this story that caught me off guard. I hope to learn more about the magic and souls along with soulmates in this story.

Great start of a new series

Soul Bound is an interesting fantasy tale with shapeshifters and gods. The storyline is interesting and entertaining. The characters are likable and believable. The story sucked me in and I was sad to see it end! The narrator did a great job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
