My name is Landon Hamilton.
I'm in hell.
I was sacrificed to save the world, and imprisoned with the very thing that sought to destroy it. I could handle that, except the love of my afterlife is stuck here with me, and the monster in this cage has all of eternity for payback.
Even worse? Our only hope of escaping this torment rests with the vampire who set it loose to begin with.
I hope it was worth it.
Bound is the fourth book in the best-selling Divine Series, a paranormal/urban and contemporary fantasy set in New York City and around the world. It is 100,000 words long, and is suitable for adults, both young and old.

I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
This is the fourth book in the devine series. Unfortunately, for me the quality of the series has steadily been going down hill with each book. What started off as a lively, fun novel with a great world and characters you could root for turned into a book where I cared enough about the outcome to finish reading, but just barely. If I could have found a synopsis online I would have stopped listening altogether.
This is a werid novel and all the ingredients are there for a great book (good narrarator, cool story, interesting characters lots of action) but it just doesn't quite work. It's like someone made a cake with all the right ingredients and followed the instructions but it still came out tasting bad. I am not quite sure why.
The book is ok, but barely a 3 in my opinion. I had to fight hard to finish this book as it became extremely tedious. One problem is splitting the point of view from a single landon point to two characters. The author kept bouncing back from one view to another so fast I couldn't really get interested in one story line before he moved onto the next.
Another problem is for some reason this book creates a high degree of frustration for me while reading it. I don't want a Mary Sue by any stretch but you never feel like the characters are winning they just fail again and again and miraculously pull things out at the end. It's more like the main characters are led around by their noses by circumstances and the actions of offscreen characters rather than making decisions for themsleves.
It says a lot for the quality of the previous books that I was invested enough to finish this one just to find out how things turned out. It isn't an awful book, but I just can't get into this one even though I liked the previous ones. Based on this book I think I will leave the series here as it concludes tidily enough I don't have enough questions to bother listening to any more in the series.
If you want to see how the series turns out get this book otherwise I'd advise taking a pass.
I read fairly quick. I am into the story all the way. if you read the previous ones naturally you are not by going to miss this. Love it. Reading the next one, Evolution. Love the narration as well. Wonderful job making me feel all the emotions.
