Food to Eat While Reading: Octavian Ribs
from The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook
I am fascinated by Lydia and her second spirit, Altaria, and how they inhabit the same body and both fight for dominance and peace with each other. What Bryant does later on with Altaria is surprising and I'm intrigued by what will happen in book two.
Octavian's aversion to Lydia's scent reminds me too much of Twilight and I just couldn't bring myself to ever fear for her safety.
I like the dynamics of Kira and Octavian toward the end of the book. In the beginning the conflicts between them made me dislike Octavian. he was thoughtless, violent and selfish--opposite of the loyal, and careful companion he is later.
As a self-pubbed ebook, Bound is very clean and there were only a few minor copy write errors.
Bound is a fresh paranormal thriller grounded in fantastic folklore.
