Book Review: Bound by Spells (Bound #2) by Stormy Smith




*** 5/5 Stars ***

Rolling right into the action from book one, Ms. Smith continues with a great fantasy series! Amelia is captive with the enemies and playing a game of love with their price while Aiden gets in touch with the beast inside and outside. Amelia's BFF pops up causing more cheerful destruction. Amelia soon learns her family's secrets and gets a close touch with a personal journal from her mother's past that reveals more than she can ever know! Facing down the traitor and evil queen, Amelia must come face to face with her gifted (cursed) powers and get them under control before she destroys those she hates and loves. Aiden comes into his own destiny and is on his own path to free Amelia, along with the Animages. Discovering the awful fates of those the queen has deemed not worthy of human treatment, it leads to an ultimate showdown or powers and discovering love.

Very action oriented and character driven, I was drawn into the story. Found it hard to swipe my finger quick enough across the Kindle to turn a page the last 20%. Romance, lots of nail-biting adventure, and self discovery kept the story fluid. Of course, it ends on a cliff hanger.. Gah!




StormyStormy Smith calls Iowa's capital home now, but was raised in a tiny town in the Southeast corner of the state. She grew to love books honestly, having a mom that read voraciously and instilled that same love in her. She knew quickly that stories of fantasy were her favorite, and even as an adult gravitates toward paranormal stories in any form.

Writing a book had never been an aspiration, but suddenly the story was there and couldn't be stopped. When she isn't working on, or thinking about, her books, Stormy's favorite places include bar patios, live music shows, her yoga mat or anywhere she can relax with her husband or girlfriends.
