Bound Series by AM Hudson
Bound by AM Hudson
Elora can speak to the dead, but belongs better with the undead.
Born of immortal blood, her curse not set to trigger until around her twenty-fifth year, she was sent away to remain unaware of and hidden from the world of magic. And from vampires. But after Elora befriends the cocky, self-loving Ric Mason, she discovers secrets about him and his distant link to her family that reshape her entire world.
A dark, sexy, two-book series that will have you screaming for more…
Having loved the Dark Secrets Series, I knew I would love this new series as well, but I had no idea just how much! You wouldn’t have to read the original to be able to pick this up and completely enjoy it and not be lost either, but it does make all the little extra bits seem like a little inside secret.
Elora is living in Australia, working for Mike, her mom’s best friend. She’s young and having fun, not ready to settle down, and slowly beginning to enjoy the back and forth banter between her and Ric, while she helps lost ghosts find peace in her off time from the cafe she works at.
Knowing nothing about her true heritage, or Ric`s true life, Elora soon finds herself in a lot of danger and a lot farther in the supernatural world than she ever really imagined, though there were those three years when she was little that she was convinced her dad was a vampire. And why is Ric asking if her real surname is Knight?
Oh and I just love that it’s not so sweetly ya too! It’s fun and sexy and so normal! -Kendra Gaither
This author is new to me and absolutely AMAZING! Her writing is brilliant and dragged me into the story immediately and carried along on a fast paced adventure right along with the characters. The story is packed full of fun, emotions, laughter, adventure, and unsuspected twists. This story is so multidimensional and intriguing that I could not put it down. I read a LOT of paranormal everything and this was really new, I haven’t read anything quite like it. It was fresh and unique and very addicting. I am completely hooked. This book is a standalone but is the beginning of a series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book! Apparently if you’ve read Dark Secrets by this author, you will be more familiar with the back story, but I was told that it wasn’t necessary in order to read this book. I fully intend to read that as well but honestly there was no sense that I was missing anything. You really get a full story and full picture although are left with many questions coaxing you towards the next book in the series, and a cliffhanger that will steal the breath right from your chest. I haven’t said this more than a couple of times in all of the many, many books that I’ve read and all of the reviews that I’ve written but I was completely blown away by this story. I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review. -Melissa72

The final chapter in the two-book Dark Secrets spin-off series, BOUND.
AM Hudson out does her self yet again! She brought a story that has put an impact in all our lives. I was frustrated at the beginning because I was so anxious for the love story to continue. The twist and turns only thickened as the plot pored out on the pages showing suspense, intrigue,lies,secrets,adventure and more. Elora left an old life to embark on a new one. Knowing this was the final installment left me sad but enjoyed how the book layer it out.
I laughed,cried, and yelled at times because this book gives you emotions that otherwise aren’t pulled out in most books. The character manages to approach things with a positive outlook even though her experiences have this entire series touched my heart. AM Hudson has a way of bringing out a total different aspect of things and it’s awesome. Her worlds are very fluent so much that it flows through your mind bleeding into your soul.
Elora is smart and witty and seems to catch on at a level way faster then her mother. She again becomes the badass in the story following the footsteps of her mother. Will she ever find her parents? Who can she trust in this new world? Will Ric come to her? Elora has made many changes and is stealing the hearts of most in the immoral world.
Ric is still his handsome self with a hint of something new, Elora. He leaves a New World to come to the Old in search for Elora. He brings many things that’s precious to her and creates change. Is she ready for that? She is a Knight after all. This world has shown her many new things that are an adventure and wonders of a lifetime. She has also experienced something that no one ever wants to endure, loss.
Let me just say if you have not read any of A.M. Hudson’s books you really need to!!!! Start with Dark Secrets Series. I promise you will not be disappointed. AM has a way to bring you into the book. You feel all the emotions the characters feel rather it be happy, sad, mad, or excited. I really don’t know how to put it into words to describe this book other than wow. David and Ara Knight have been through hell and back and still find true love. Jason Knight gets his hea and I was so excited for him!!!. We were introduced to the lovely daughter of David and Ara. Her name is Elora and she has a lot of things she finds out about herself including her true love Ric. She goes through a lot of heartache and yet still comes out strong. I don’t want to put any spoilers in here . I want everyone who reads this book to be just as surprised as I was. I know this is the end of the series but if I could have anyone read any books it would be A.M. Hudson’s books. I am so glad I found her books without them I would never have had my first book boyfriend lol. Thank you A.M. Hudson for the amazing books. Please everyone go read her books I promise you will not be disappointed. -Lisa Renfrew
