Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Wardens of Terra, an elite group of shifters destined to save humankind! 

The Hounds of God have been disbanded by the Catholic Church, leaving a terrible void in the fight to save humankind. As a result, a much older organization returns to power and takes up the reins to fight to save the Earth from the evil that stalks it. 

They are the Wardens of Terra, an elite force of shifters each with a defining power to aid them in the never-ending battle against the forces of darkness. 

Alone they are fierce warriors. Once they’ve found their true mates, they become an unstoppable force. These are their stories. 

Troy Waman is a thunderbird shifter and a Warden of Terra. He is sent to Upstate New York to investigate a disturbance in the balance of magic and nature. His job is to decipher whether the sudden string of winter storms is natural or the work of darker forces in the area. 

Andrea Kristos’ estranged great aunt recently passed away, leaving her a house in Shadowland, New York. The novice Romani Caster moves into the ancient house hoping to learn more about the parents who left her long ago. During her search, she discovers that some things are better left undisturbed. 

Just when things couldn’t get any worse, a huge, devastatingly handsome stranger shows up at Andrea’s door in the middle of the night and puts her in handcuffs! 

How will she get him to believe that she is innocent?

Good Introduction to the Series

This was my first taste of this author, CD Gorri. Her shifter world is imaginative and seems to be fleshed-out pretty well. As this is the first story in a series, questions are left unanswered and many details regarding what exactly the Wardens of Terra are fighting and why are left out. We learn the Wardens are here to protect the earth from evil, but what happened that caused the Wardens to finally be “activated” after centuries in hiding? I found it hard to believe that the first official mission given to a Warden was to basically check out an evil book in a random house that suddenly came alive. In a supernatural world, I’d expect that sort of thing to happen often, whether the Wardens are active or not. That being said, I understand that this is a story about “Fated Mates” and that “fate” will bring these mates together. I can distend my beliefs given this fact.

Overall, this story was a fun listen! The narrator, Ri Paige, did a good job bringing the characters to life and making the ride more enjoyable.

I look forward to learning more about this world in the next few books of this series!

I received a reviewer code in return for my unbiased review.

Bound by Air – Andrea and Troy

Bound by Air is book one of the Wardens of Terra series. This was a really good paranormal short story and a great start to the series. It will be interesting to find out who the next warden to find his mate will be. I enjoyed C. D. Gorri's writing style. Ri Paige did a very good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Story!

This was my first C.D. Gorri's book. This is the first novella in The Wardens of Terra Series. Troy and Andrea's adventure is fast-paced, funny, and intriguing. Troy, a Thunderbird Shifter, is handsome, protective, and caring. Andrea is beautiful, strong, and independent. The world building is well-built, original, and interesting. I liked the amazing characters, the mystery and the romance. Ri Paige did an outstanding job with the narration. She has a beautiful voice, and a great range of voices. Looking forward to listening to Star Kissed, the next book in the Series!

Sweet Shifter Love Story With Heat

Troy Wayman, a Thunderbird Shifter and a Warden of Terra is sent to see why magic and nature are out of sync in a quiet hamlet in New York… Andrea Kistos’ is a novice Romani Caster, who just so happened to have inherited a house in that quiet hamlet. Andrea finds out the hard way what happens when you play with magic without a guidebook …. Oops! Naughty, Naughty girl! Bound by Air is an absolute delight! Cleverly written and beautifully narrated, this love story is hot, engaging and really held my interest. The characters are very well developed. I liked that the Wardens are made up of several different types of shifters, filling my head with visions of future installments of what promises to be a fabulous series! This one was a real treat!

Fantastic short story!

I definitely recommend this audiobook! The story might be short but it definitely packs a lot into it. This storyline is fantastic, it has action, mystery, intrigue and romance.
The narrator does a great job with the characters and the voices of each character making it easy to distinguish between the characters. I would definitely listen to books narrated by this narrator.

Good premise with okay execution

This is a instalove fated mates shifter novella with a side of saving the world from evil. Ri Paige narration was good. Troy is a Thunderbird shifter and a Warden of Terra. He is sent to investigate an evil disturbance. When he arrives at the location he finds Andrea in the thrall of an evil grimoire. Troy instantly recognizes Andrea as his fated mate. While short, the premise was good and the storyline was fairly engaging. Unfortunately, the flow of the story was broken up by repetition of the mission of the wardens and stilted conversations. I liked the premise enough to continue with the series in hopes some of these issues will be rectified in later books.

Audio Review

I didn't read the story, I received a free code to listen to the audio via Audible.

I thought this was a good short audio book about fated mates & instant love. Troy & Andreas story is a great start to the series of short stories.

I would recommend this audio for anyone looking for a short HEA or for a 4 hour road trip. The story is complete with enough background to complete the story & set up the rest of the series.

andrea grows up

I was disappointed and angry when Andrea impulsively doubted her mate so swiftly and considered breaking their mating bond. Wth??!!
How immature. At least Troy acted maturely and selflessly. Troy's shifter animal was intriguing and interesting. Looking forward to more in this series. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Absolutely brilliant

Oh wow! This is exactly what I was looking for. This magical world has so much to offer. With shifters, witches, magic and lots of adventure I can’t wait for the next book in the series. This book grabbed me from the first five minutes. Fantastic performance from Ri.
