Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until late one night, she was brutally attacked and left for dead. She survived, saved by a stranger who witnessed her undergo a physical transformation. That's not the only thing that's different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body. Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. He's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she is a Mage - an immortal made of light, not magic. She must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

Twenty-two-year-old Aern is done watching his brother destroy the only thing that matters. He never wanted to take Morgan's place among council, never wanted to rule their hidden world. But when the key to the prophecy is found, a young girl named Brianna whom Morgan will destroy, Aern knows he has to take action. What he really wants is for things to go back to normal. But now he's kidnapped a girl, and his brother's men are after him.

If you could sum up Bound by Prophecy in three words, what would they be?

Surprising, Suspenseful, Energetic

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that you weren't able to figure things out until the author wanted you to...

Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I loved being able to deliver pizzas and listen to Bound By Prophecy. This was the first time I had listened to an audiobook narrated by Kirby.... I thought at the beginning that Kirby was kinda mono-toned... but around chapter three or so, he really picked up and did a GREAT job!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When you find out that Emily was the Chosen one for real and that their mother had set in motion such an elaborate plan!

Any additional comments?

okay, so while this book was a slow burner.... and it took me a while to get the story to make me enthralled.... after about 15% through it happened.... that pivotal moment where **GASP** and all of a sudden I am LIVING THIS BOOK!! Well, it happened...!! Learning about this amazing world that Melissa Wright has put us all into was AMAZING!! Aern was a bit plain and cut straight a bit too much for me at the beginning but I quickly began liking his story more and more.... and then had to RE-read the fact that he has DRAGONblood?? WOW!! Loved this story and hope to be able to fit book two in the descendants series in my reading schedule asap!!
I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!!

Driven by the fierce god within him, highlander Ian Kerr is sworn to fight for the land he loves - and the brother he lost. But when he's transported four centuries into the future, he finds himself fighting his own desires - for a beautiful, bewitching woman who could hold a warrior spellbound. Danielle Buchanan has heard the legends. She has felt the power of Druid blood in her veins. But she has never known a man as fearsome - or as haunted - as the warrior Ian. With her magic, Dani must help him fight an ancient evil. With her heart, she must join him in his quest.

Would you consider the audio edition of Midnight's Lover to be better than the print version?

Can you give a book 10 stars??? Because I want to!!
OH MY GOD!! I hadn't been reading the Dark Warrior Series because other books came up in my review list and I got swamped but I took a break to read this one and AAAhhhhh I am so glad I took time out of my other reviews to read this in between when I had my times because I sooo loved reading Ian's battle... Malcolm's seeming to not even....want.... to come around.. which is sad but I have hope for him. Ian saving Dani was so sweet... He was still fighting but she was brave and strong!! I held my breath through a few scenes in this book so I knew that the ending couldn't come soon enough.. I didn't want it to come because I was loving the story... but I knew that the end of the book would hopefully mean Ian gaining the control he thought he didn't have. I was not happy when Ian was put in the dungeon... I wanted to go to him just as Dani did! Charlie was such an ass!! OMG I sooo wanted Ian to be the one to get to rid the castle of him..! Had a ton of fun learning Danielle's power and how it knew where she needed to be. I love Donna Grant's Happily Ever Afters... just.... sometimes I wish she didn't have so many scares and sincerely OMG moments...***SPOILER*** I was so on the edge of my seat at the end I swear!! I was wishing I knew the chant so I could help them help Saffron!! And then...... BAM!! I was crying and screaming and OOOOoooooohhhh Donna!!!! I love you!!!***SPOILER*** I look forward to reading Midnight's Seduction (Dark Warrior) Even though We are supposed to read Dark Craving (Dark Kings), Night's Awakening (Dark Kings), and Dawn's Desire (Dark Kings) next... I have already read those... so I get to move onto Midnight's Seduction next :) EEEE Thank you Donna Grant for yet another wonderful story that made me wish I lived in your books!!!

I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Dani. Being strong enough to help Ian get a handle on himself allow him to love Danielle and gain control of his God. It was amazing!

Have you listened to any of Arika Escalona’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Arika's nations have been in a few Donna Grant books so far and I much prefer her from that of the preceding narrator Anthony Ferguson. She does an outstanding job!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sometimes a little voice can be your biggest savior.
