{ARC Review} Bound by A.M. Hudson @AMHudsonAuthor

Bound is the first in the new adult paranormal romance series of the same name. I really enjoyed Bound. I thought it was a great mixture of atypical romance, lots of paranormal creatures, curses, and magic. Yes, there is a lot going on in this book.

I imagined it all as very stark and imposing with clean lines and harsh edges. It fit well for the tone of the story. Mellea is just a girl from a not so well off family just trying to save enough money to go to university after secondary school. Her parents hit some tough… Read more »
