Publisher's Summary

Rowan Greenwood has everything she's supposed to want from life - a good family, a bright future, and a proposal from a handsome and wealthy magic hunter. She knows she should be content with what she has. If only she could banish the idea that there's more to life than marriage and children, or let go of the fascination with magic that she's been forced to suppress since childhood. When Rowan unknowingly saves the life of one of her people's most feared enemies, that simple act of compassion rips her from her sheltered life and throws her into a world of magic that's more beautiful, more seductive, and more dangerous than she ever could have imagined. Rowan might get everything she ever dreamed of - that is, if the one thing she's always wanted doesn't kill her first.

Love the Story, Females Voice Not For me

Would you listen to Bound: Bound, Book 1 again? Why?

Great story, but the female's voice, is like listening to Violet from the incredibles, which while does a lot to establish character for me was distracting. But overall I loved it, and it's all personal preference!

Loved the story, hated the narrators

Any additional comments?

Both narrators sounded too old for the parts and the female had a bad vocal fry that was distracting. Great story, though. Looking forward to the next two books.

the narrator ruined everything!

that was the most painful narration I've had to listen to. Justine Eyre's voice was grating. my mom thought she sounded constipated while my daughter thought she was on the brink of death. I almost wished the heroine would meet an untimely end just so she'd stop speaking. I'm going to try reading the book without audio to see if I like it better.

I really enjoyed

Even though Aren acts like the cowardly Lion when it comes to his brother. I liked how his character progresses. Rowan has to go thru a lot and seems to have much more growing to do. overall I enjoyed the adventure but unfortunately the rest of the series is not available on audible.

Sweet YA fantasy romance

Overall this was a pleasant listen. As is often the case with a YA book, the characters lacked some depth and the story was a bit simplistic, but it was still an enjoyable listen. It was the classic magic and adventure filled quest where two characters fall in love kind of story. I found the dual narration to be distracting as the characters voices sounded so different between the two narrators. All that being said, I wish the next two books in the trilogy were available on audible because I would definitely listen to them!

Light Fantasy

The performance of the readers enhances this book tremendously. The story is solid but drags a bit in the middle. The ending is very interesting and opens the way for another in the series. I think if you are a hard core fantasy fan you may disappointed but it is overall very enjoyable.

Awful Narrator!

The female narrator, Justine Eyre, was AWFUL! I couldn't finish this book because the flat, overly-breathy way that she read was intolerable. I couldn't understand what she was saying half the time, even with the volume turned way up.
