My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This one’s going to take a while to get over!
I can already tell after just a few minutes from reading the last word in this book that I’m going to spend a few days with a book hangover. It’s so fabulously tragic and gritty and hopeless at times that when the sweet, loving parts come they are all that much more poignant.
As I read the last two sentences, I cried. Sudden and bittersweet. And let me tell you, this chick doesn’t cry easily or often. Huss nailed this one out of the ballpark.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Although this novel is the second in this fantasy series, it stands alone well enough that I didn’t feel lost. I will certainly go back and read the first one now, so that I can wallow in the details that were hinted at in this book.
Now, I’d call this fantasy with a historical (mythology) bent, with the added bonus of a neatly set-up love triangle. It’s also the story of a young woman coming into her self and her power, so as such the novel has an uplifting quality to is as well.
Witch Bound is well-written and compelling. I loved the magic system and mythological details that were sewn into the story line. The romance bits weren’t half-bad either. Especially the chemistry between the the ones who weren’t supposed to be attracted to each other.
It’s a must read!
