Giving an average mark to the two novels appearing in this anthology, Bound to You gets 2,5 stars. And let's make three because he's Christopher Pike.

Spellbound ★★★★

Even if this novel is almost as old as I am, I guess it still is a good one. I've read an Italian translation around 1994 and it just confirmed that Christopher Pike was my favorite writer. Now I've decided to slowly read all his books in English because most of the Italian edition were somehow fitted in order to focus on a younger...more

Both stories are splendid.
Bound to You by New York Times Bestselling Author, Christopher Pike takes us on two spellbound journeys through the strange happenings of a boy and a girl. The first short story Spellbound is about a girl named Cindy who has Jason as a boyfriend who is blamed for killing his last girlfriend by the falls. Events become even stranger as animal attacks continue to appear exactly where the last girl was killed. Will she find out the real truth about what exactly happened that night between Jason an...more
Kevin McFadden is my favorite author. I must admit that this book is not as amazing as the 'Thirst' series and not as exciting. But the ending of the two books inside this volume didn't fail my expectations. Both stories touched my heart at the ending that made my waterworks into action once again. I like the way Christopher Pike/Kevin McFadden ends the story with a love that will never end (a love that will never end in an ending lol). Just like Thirst did, these two stories touched my heart.

I thought the book was good. I'm a fan of Christopher Pike's books because they always have me on the edge of my seat, thinking, "What's going to happen next? What's going to happen next?" But then there are times in the book when I'm thinking, "What the heck is going on here?" And no matter how many times I re-read the part I'm confused on, I can't make any sense of it, so I shrug and continue reading. There are two stories in this book: the first one is about some mysterious murders going on t...more

Mark soon discovers that Kara is from the future and is there to bring Mark and Becky together, and that Becky and Kara are the same person.

As time passes Mark and Becky grow more and more apart with the lies and Becky's love for Ray. Will Kara succeed in getting Mark and Becky togther? Or will they all die in the end? "I qu...more

I enjoyed both stories in this book, but See you Later was by far my favourite. I was surprised at how immensely profound it turned out to be. It's the kind of story that really makes you think about our mysterious universe and how little we understand it. I love pondering about this and this is the the main reason I gave it 5 stars. It was also a page turner. I read it in one sitting!

Spellbound was also very intense and I enjoyed it. It was a little strange, but I still enjoyed it.

Both the stor...more
Seriously? This book is so damn weird. But I really like it! Maybe I am a weirdo, haha, but I had never read story plots like these before! The two stories in this book are so enchancing and exciting, and things just happen the way you will never expect them to happen. Although there are some parts which are quite confusing, I really like how things turn out in the end. Sometimes when I read I just feel that the story is just a tragedy, but there are times when it really made me very delighted....more

The two stories in this book are pretty especially the first, but I was a good read.
I think the book was well thought out and the authors way of sharing the story is unique. At times you will think you who is the killer and just like that a twist is thrown in.
spoiler alert......
I was honestly thinking someone was a vampire, and i found it surprising that Joni is a vulture. Unlike many books Joni has a life worth telling. I think it would be intersting to read more about her life prior to Balas villiage and how she got up to this point. I understand Bala explained in detail,, bu...more
I liked the first story 'Spellbound' but not the second 'See You Later'. Spellbound was unexpected (I guessed only a part of the mystery before it was revealed) but See You Later was a bit drab to be honest. Pike has done this theme before, much more successfully in my opinion. I also did not feel the two stories merged well together and think they should have been packaged separately. Either way, the Kara/Mark storyline did not captivate me and did not feel well explained (I suppose if it had c...more

This book was super strange for me, but not in a bad way. The book consisted of two different stories that were both good. The first story left me going "what?!?!" but it kept my attention and was a quick read. The second story was a little mind bending as well but I really liked it and found it to be more believable than the first story. All in all I found myself thinking how weird this book was yet I couldn't put it down..go figure. I give it four stars for creativity, solid plots, strong char...more

This book includes two short stories. Spell bound and see you later. Spell bound was amazing and very intense. See you later however, left me very confused. Wasn't a huge fan of that one. It has to do with the future and I feel he didn't explain it well enough. It left me with a question mark. But still, Pike is by far my favorite author. He knows how to include romance into a book without going overboard. He knows how to include suspense without making it sound really fake and made up. Well don...more

Until The End, Christopher Pike's other double saga novel, was worse than this one. Bound to You had one really good story, See You Later.
Spellbound is older, so maybe the writing style became a little cheesy for me. It was okay, but the story wasn't the best and I've heard of things like this before.
See You Later on the other hand, was fantastic. I loved the characters, especially Kara, she had that whole kick-butt attitude going on and I just loved her!
Pretty good!

There were two completely different stories in this book. They were both fantasy but except for those parts it was like realistic fiction. They were really instresting but i don't understand why the author put those stories in the same book. They aren't really realated except for they both have the idea of love in them. I don't really have much to say about this book. It wasn't amazing and it wasn't bad, in my opinion it was pretty average.

Christopher Pike is my favorite science fiction author ever. His books always creep me out or leave me with disturbed feelings. I like that his books never really have an "end". It's usually open ended and you can decide for yourself what you think. I think he has a great balance of science meets religion in his books to satisfy everyone. I look forward to reading more from him.
Josh Aron
Like the other Chritopher Pike's book I love the first 100 hundred pages not to mention the tittles. Those were easy read- narratively easy to understand but kinda disappointing as you go through the next hundred pages.
Spellbound was so so but really it's better than the 2nd one. I guess I'm not into Sci- Fci which goes on the second- See You Later....
Christopher Pike has an amazing imagination extending to other worlds. I loved the first book in this book of two, which was more or less had a crime setting. The 2nd book was also good but didn't hook as the first. This was my first piece of his writing, but you can bet your buttons I'm looking forward to more.

Spellbound repackaged with See You Later.
The "time travel" and "sci-fi" labels pertain to See You Later only. I gave it a "horror" label too because of this one scene...

This book was #52 in my 52 book goal for the year! I loved it! Pike stories always pull me in right away and they always have some whacked out ending you could never foresee!
EXCELLENT!!!! I remember I read this book a year or so ago, and it was awesome. It was my favorite book back then, and I didn't set it down until it was finished. No joke.
I love it,all the mistery...suspense
I just want to keep reading ...the second
history in the book in the beginning
I dont understand it,but i reading again
And i like it.......
The second story is leaps and bounds better than the first...but still not that great...but saved them both from a one-star rating.
Chastity Kidd
Kinda strange but keeping me entertained. Still on the first book so we will see about the 2nd book.
These two stories in one book are on the weird side, sci-fi in general. Both kept my interest.
Cheyenn Reynolds
this was such a great book i say everyone must read it even though I cried at the end!
Loved this! The outcomes of both stories were very unexpected and creative.
Christopher Pike never disappoints

very interesting concepts
