Publisher's Summary

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?

A book with no common sense.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

no

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

It made me confused. I just find it hard to believe that a young adult would make every bad choice they could that often. Its like sticking your hand in the fire and then wonder why you got burnt.

Any additional comments?

The book started out fine the turned into a book with no common sense. Or maybe I am wrong, but the main protagonist just spends the hole book making all of the wrong decisions.
I just don't think a 18 year old would be acting like a 8 year old. Not to mention the book is highly predictable. I new what was going to happen way before it happened. The book played like a bad horror movie.

Any additional comments?

Wow, just wow - Stormy has delivered a HIT! I devoured this book & thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! She has gifted me with a new series that I'm going to LOVE through and through! I love the major and minor characters, their interactions, and the development of the story! I cannot wait to see what this series is going to have in store for me!

So now I have to wait, what is going to seem like an eternity I'm sure, for the next book! Hurry up, Stormy!!! I need the next one, like tomorrow!

Surprisingly good

When I first listened I thought "uh oh, another dud" but thankfully I have a personal deal to give every book 1 chapter or 10 pages, whichever is longer. This book then hooked me and had some fun twists. Ending is harsh!! Gotta get second in series :)

Wonderful narration for an awesome story!

Absolutely loved Bound by Duty by Stormy Smith! It had intrigue, romance, self-discovery and lots of action! I devoured this book and my only issue is that it ended!! Thankfully I have Bound by Spells ready but I know waiting for the 3rd book is going to kill me!

Good story, but just okay narration

I like the story. It was a little different twist on the supernatural tale/love story. The story could have been a little more developed. The book feels unfinished because of the cliffhanger you will see coming.

I almost didn't listen beyond the first chapter because the narrator just wasn't good. Her male characters were just awful and her southern accent sounded like something from a cartoon.
