I've waited a long time for this sequel and it was well worth the wait. Matthews does a fabulous job, once again, in bringing us into her imaginative world and creating a place that seems real to us, using the characters we became familiar with in the previous books. This time Astrid (Swan) and Hallad are fighting to keep the peace while evil forces are secretly trying to trip them up along the way. All of our regular favorites are brought back to the cast and each one has their own little ...more

Well let's just say when it ended I was a little bit upset that there was nothing else to read and I'll have to wait for the next one! :)
It's just a really good sequence to the first book, which kept me hooked and wanting to know more.
A fast paced read, a lot of angst and doubt, a lot of trickery... Some of which was kind of obvious to me, but a lot of which wasn't, and fooled me right up until the very end! :)
The characters are also evolving, some for the better and some for the worse, but a lo

This was a wonderful sequel to Bonded. I was unable to set my kindle down, until I had read it through to the end. I am usually pretty good an figuring out how a story will end, but I was unable to do that with this one. Mande will have you guessing until the end, and she will leaving you wanting book 3. Personally, I can't wait.

Mande Matthews has done it again! Broken, sequel to the brilliantly-written, Bonded was exactly what I have been waiting for. Surely, it is worth the long wait Mande has put her fans through. ;)

I first read Bonded, when I started blogging for the first time, Mande Matthews was one of the first Authors I had asked to do a guest-post on Starry-eyed Heart Reviews. She was also one of the Authors who inspired me, to continue blogging about books and giving me the confidence I needed. I remember fall

I thought this was the end

There were sentences where I was confused about which character was doing what but not very often. The story lagged somewhat in the middle but picked up at the end. I liked it enough that I want to know how it all finishes.

I was definitely not as impressed with the second book as I was the first. Of course a lot of that has to do with Eric. I find that he really does make the story a struggle to stay interested.

“When two are joined," continued the priestess, "One is not lost in the other. Two are not merged into one as most believe. Nei, these two souls come as equals, and each brings strength and individuality to grow as a whole. Oneness is not without the individual spirit. As these two join, they commit to nurture the individuality of one another that feeds the greater wholeness of the couple." Ase” 0 likes
