Publisher's Summary

Cyrene Strohm is a Queen's Affiliate, a high-ranking official of the court of Byern, with power and privilege to spare. But she's also a keeper of dangerous secrets: like the fact that she holds the heart of the King, and that she possesses magic in a world where magic no longer exists. Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia, an island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering. But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin, as Cyrene comes to learn that everything she's been told her whole life - about her court, her homeland, and even herself - are bound in a beautiful lie.

    "Conflicted feelings...?"
    What did you like best about The Bound? What did you like least?

    It started all well however it seems like the author is trying to drag the story by waiving to many plots that it kind of make no sense at all. Its clear that Cyrhine has a clear objective but easy trails of it by going boy crazy and she so easily falls in love??? I know she is young but come on....


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    the ending was very confusing and it was clear cliff hanger so lets see what the next book bring hope it doesn't go down hill


    Was The Bound worth the listening time?

    IT was ok. but I rushed the last chapters it was getting on my nerves...

    "Recommended to those who like YA and Fantasy..."

    I would recommend this book to those who like YA and Fantasy. Cyrene is a young, beautiful, smart and full of life girl. In her innocents she wants nothing more than to serve her country as an Affiliate. Once she gets the position she finds out that many things she had been taught in the past are not as they appear to be. I enjoyed the journey is took to understand wants happening to her.

    I must say that I am happy her character is strong and is able to do what is best for herself. I am happy she never truly became the Kings mistress. I look forward to book 3. I am on team Cyrene, I hope at the end of the day, she will find someone who is available, who can love and cherish her because she is more than worth it.
