Book Review: Bound by Duty - The Bound Series


Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name. 

Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become. 

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?

My Review

This is the first book in a three book series by Stormy Smith. This book is 391 pages long.

Amelia has been kept in the dark for most of her life, only getting glimpses of her Elder powers. When her father makes a deal with the "she devil", Amelia has until her 21st birthday to live a little. She is betrothed to the prince of the immortals and she doesn't even know what he loos like. Her power is taking a hold on her and it is hard to control, but her brother, who is also and immortal, helps keep her under control. Then, when she goes to college she becomes friends with B and meets a handsome human that will do anything to get to know her, even the worst parts of her. Immortals are forbidden to tell humans about themselves or others, so Amelia should just cut him loose. He isn't who he seems and neither is her friends. Someone she knows well will betray her and her love for this human makes more things confusing. He isn't what he seems, either. Will she be with the human? Is she really the Elder of all the Prophecies?

This was a great book and I really want to read the next book. I was really mad that everyone was keeping secrets from her. She would have been more prepared if her dad and brother would have just told her about her powers. I was really surprised at multiple parts in the book. And I really felt like Amelia's emotions were perfect for what she was going through. Stormy Smith did a great job with this book.
