Aidan Montgomery hadn’t been prepared for Amelia Bradbury to walk in and then out of his life. He also hadn’t expected to find the powerful magic hidden deep within him for the last nineteen years, but he’s embracing it — finding more control and more answers every day. Now, with the help of Amelia’s best friend, Bethany, Aidan is on a quest to understand his destiny and find Amelia.

Amelia decided to stand by her duty, which meant walking away from her first chance at love. Trapped in Cresthaven at the Queen’s mercy, she spends her days with Micah — an ally she still holds at arm’s length — struggling to manage her heartbreak while keeping her mind focused on the task at hand. As she continues to unlock the secrets of the Keeper power, Queen Julia’s true motives reveal themselves, forcing Amelia to decide, yet again, how much she’s willing to sacrifice.

Will Aidan get to Amelia before it's too late, or will the very power that sustains them keep them apart?

My review of Bound By Spells...

This 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 like I got to spend equal time with Amelia and Aidan which I loved. 

The ease in which I connected with the characters was awesome! This book picks up right after book one, and introduces some new characters! But let me just say (and I know I said this in regards to book 1 as well) but I just adored Bethany! That girl can make anyone smile, even in the toughest of times! Stormy, if you are reading this can we please have a novella in Bethany's POV? Hey even a short story will do! 

I am going to end with saying that I cannot wait to dig into book three Bound By Prophecy! If you haven't read this series yet you can check out my review HERE and the amazon link HERE. Within the pages of this book there is tons of awesome magic and Amelia kicks some serious ass! I loved watching both her and Aidan's powers grow stronger throughout the book!

All About That Cover: The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith - An oldie but a goodie!

"All About That Cover" is a weekly feature that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions. 
Original Cover vs. TV tie-in edition


I don't know about y'all but I will always love the original cover. There's just something about YA book covers from the 90's. Notice the raven feather, too bad they didn't give Daemon shifting powers in the show!
