17793570My Review: 

Bound by Prophecy is about Aern and his brother Morgan. Both are blood descendants of a long line of powerful beings with special abilities. Their abilities are called “sway”-  which means they can sway, or enforce, humans to do what they want.

Morgan is basically the ass of the story who’s let his power go to his head and is dead keen on destroying the world. So of course, the brother is determined to stop him, thus saving the world and all. The problem is that Morgan is totally crazy and  crazy powerful. Which means that Aern has to battle Morgan to save everyone. Oh, and then there’s this prophecy that’s making people go crazy and stuff. I know I sound sarcastic but there’s literally no other way to put it.

When we meet Aern, he’s in the middle of meeting Emily. Emily thinks Aern has kidnapped her older sister (Brianna) which leads her to hate him at first. Eventually, Emily realizes that Aern has hidden her sister to keep her save – save from Morgan because he needs Brianna to fulfill the prophecy that will make him the ruler of the world. Bu what nobody knows –  including Morgan- is that things aren’t what they seem to be.

Bound by Prophecy was full of action, great plot twists, lots of mysterious things and sizzling chemistry. It was everything what an urban fantasy book should be.

I loved that Wright managed to write this book from a male point-of-view without sounding stupid, illogical or otherwise unconvincing. Aern is smart, funny, sexy and refreshing.

Aern and Emily were totally swoon-worthy and I instantly fell in love with them. Emily is a great female protagonist who knows how to be strong but also vulnerable at the same time. She was such an honest character, at times it was hard not to laugh because of that. Aern had me falling for him from the start but as the story went on, we really got to see sensitivity, honesty and most importantly his love for Emily.

Wright created a fantastic world with amazing characters. There wasn’t a single moment I couldn’t feel myself in the book.

Bound by Prophecy is an amazing read, which will leave you wanting more.


I’ll see you next friday! 🙂
