Publisher's Summary

The most important rule for an Apprentice Consul is simple: Don't get involved with daemons. Well, Piper is planning to break that rule - big time. After a near-deadly scandal with the Sahar Stone, she has the chance to return to the only life she's ever wanted. All she has to do to keep her Apprenticeship is forget about Ash and Lyre. Ash might be enigmatic and notoriously lethal, and Lyre might be as sinfully irresistible as he is irritating, but they're not bad for a couple of daemons. There's just one problem: Ash is missing.

Really, she shouldn't risk her future for him. He lied. He betrayed her. But he also saved her life, damn it. Wherever he is, he's in trouble, and if she doesn't save his sorry butt, who will? But with every dangerous secret she unravels, each one darker than the last, she slips deeper into Ash's world - a world with no escape for either of them.

good sequel...but...narrator awful

Look, I purchased the first book and really enjoyed (well, actually, I liked it - ended up reading it on Kindle). The narrator Jorjeana Marie is actually quiet good on some books that she's narrated. However, ALL recent narrations from her are horrid - she has an extremely nasal delivery; and I don't mean "nasal" as in "accent" or "dialect" - I am from NYC and a lot of people think that a "New York" accent/dialect sounds nasal. That's NOT what I mean, I mean that this woman needs to seriously either blow her nose or get herself sorted out medically. She sounds like she has a horrid cold/flu/plague, etc. It's absolutely unbearable to listen to and should not be allowed to record audiobooks. It's not like the audiobooks are free for god's sake... This review is NOT for content of book or the author (I ended up purchasing a Kindle version so that I actually could enjoy the book). I just felt that it was appropriate to review the "narrator" since this is an audiobook site. So, please do, buy the book - it's quite good, but not in the audio format.

One of the best series I have read

Non stop action. It keeps you in the edge of your seat. Never a dull moment in this series.

Ash has disappeared and Piper goes looking for him. She knows she is not supposed to get involved with daemons but she can't help it. He has saved her life more than once.

Love this series!!!

Narrator blew her nose! Whew!

The last book was a very annoying and distracting performance by the narrator, as everyone commented, including myself. This book read was MUCH less bothersome, but she still has that annoying habit in dropping the "L" sound in the middle of words. Ex: shoulder is pronounced "sho-der," told is "toad", etc. She has a great voice, great acting and lots of potential, but PLEASE! can someone please teach her how to correctly pronounce these words? (It's amazing how many times the word "shoulder" is in this book!)

Aaaaaaand the cold is gone?

Book 1, the narrator sounded like she had a cold or was holding her nose. Book 2 and nothing of the sort. So it's an improvement to say the least.

Better than the first - and the first was an amazing book!

This book did not disappoint! The first book was amazing and this one was the same. Annette builds an amazing world. And the narrator was awesome. Seriously a great series!

The Wrap up at the end

The ending is more suspenseful than the last book! I already bought the next book. I am beginning to like the author's writing style.

Good Story and More Depressing, but Necessary

What made the experience of listening to Bind the Soul the most enjoyable?

I didn't enjoy this book near as much because of the constant depressing parts. With that being said, all of the trials that Ash and Piper had to go through in this book is probably setting up the greater, overall plot. Its like Episode V of Star Wars where the middle movie is darker and not as much fun as the first but is necessary for Episode VI to make sense.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bind the Soul?

When Piper was taken captive.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Piper rescued the girl from prison.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I really wanted to hurry up and get to a less oppressive parts.

Not as good as book 1

Felt long and uneventful in areas. Little to no character growth. Villain flat, doesn't spark emotions.
