They were promised weight loss, the cure for Cancer, Parkinson’s Disease and infertility; they were promised hope. The side effects were anything but hopeful. Mara faces seemingly insurmountable obstacles and adversities as she works feverishly to free Sebastian from the holds which bind him. Her refusal to abandon him, and his refusal to let her slip away, keep them fight ...more

**4.5 Bastian Loving Stars** I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE Sebastian ---- now this 2nd book in the series is what I'm talking about developing our characters. This one was perfect with setting up the love shared between our MC's.

UGH...but another cliffhanger that I can't wait to read how this is going to pan out!

I didn’t read the original version of this trilogy, so I can’t give an opinion as to whether the tweaks are an improvement, but what I can say is that I loved Shannon Mayer’s BOUND! It’s a pseudo zombie story that follows a couple who’s love overcomes insurmountable odds. It’s corny, and does require a bit of a leap vis-à-vis why only Mara & Bastian’s connection trumps all where as other twosomes “turn”. But, it’s written in such a way that it’s next to impossible to
Cathy (cathepsut)
The storyline continues directly after Sundered. Considering the length of the book, both of them, probably together with the third installment of this trilogy, would have made a decently sized full novel.

The story of Mara and Sebastian continues, with a plot twist bringing them into contact with other survivors and a possible cure for the Nevermore drug.

The first book was entertaining enough, despite some minor flaws. But Bound, although the plot idea was good, was pretty weak in terms of stor

The second book in Mayer's Nevermore Trilogy Bound is another fast pace and fun read. The romance continues between Sebastian and Mara. Their love amazes me.
Once again the turmoil this couple goes through is heart breaking but their love for one another never falters. In this book we are with Mara as she struggles to survive the Nevermore out break. I was happy to find out that this book flowed seamlessly from the first. I bought it when I bought the first and was glad that I had it to move imm

This is a fabulous series from an author that just pops out of no where! The characters draw you into their world, the plot moves along at a pace that keeps you turning the pages and leaves you breathless with what will happen next.

I felt that the instances of violence and fear felt very real to me like it was the way it could truly happen in a apocalypse type situation.

I am SO excited to ead Dauntless! Sundered (Book I) was amazing and drew you in, Bound (Book II) was just as goood if not bett

Like Sundered, Bound is a page turner. I'm hooked on this series. Bound picks up where Sundered left off, with Mara on the brink of the hardest decision of her life. Without giving away too much of the book, for those of you who have not yet read this one, I will just say that Shannon Mayer has outdone herself. Bound is action packed, fast-paced, and sticks with you long after the final page. The descriptive flow of Mayers writing style literally draws the reader into the story.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review, which I take very seriously.

In the 2nd book of The Nevermore Trilogy, we learn that Sebastian almost lets go of what remains of his human side, but Mara is relentless in reminding him of it and not losing it.
We learn that the Nevermores can and do communicate with each other and the hoard as a whole, like a hive almost.
We learn that a few Nevermores cling to the last bits of their humanity, like Scout.
And we learn that the military-ish peo

I enjoyed the ongoing saga of Sebastian and Mara in this sequel to "Sundered". Their situation has worsened in this second book but Mara still fights to save both her husband and her unborn baby. Not so much against the creatures called Nevermores, this time her battles are more with her own kind - the humans.

Ms Mayer has a unique way of creating characters and telling a story and I hope she's around for a very long time. How she ever came up with the premise for this trilogy, I can't imagine.

This 3 book series was a nice change of pace for me. I typically read a lot of romance novels and this book was different. It's a love story all twisted up into a world of zombie-ish monsters. I have already recommended this series to a few of my friends. It's a different twist from the typical love story and the characters are ones you won't forget. You will even be surprised by some of the characters that you will fall in love with. It's and easy and fun read if you're looking for something a ...more

Another great read!

The story picks nicely where it had been left in the first book of the series. As smoothly and readably as before, ‘Bound’ takes us into a different, unexpected direction. I was taken completely by surprise by the twist in the middle of the book.

The love line of the story is great, while the suspense builds consistently. The tension never slacks and the original angle on the zombie-related issues is refreshing. The Nevermores get more likable by each book, for my taste.

I am definitely addicted to this series. The underlying humanity in the Nevermores shines through the story so clearly, while still emphasizing their baser instincts. The love story is ever-present, but blends well with the story rather than detracting from it. You can almost feel you are living the story, and you root as hard as you can for the survivors to keep on going. This author has a new fan in me.

Staying on the edge with the Nevermores

I was wondering where the trilogy was going after the ending of the first book. Don’t worry…no spoilers but LOTS of praise. Bound answers some questions from the first book, poses some new ones and continues to build the suspense. And brings in even more exciting, interesting and memorable characters. Luckily the third book was already on my Kindle!

I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Bound picks up immediately where Sundered left off so for those of you, like me, screamed at the end of Sundered because there were no more pages to flip we get our answer of the choice Mara makes.  Now this is a 3-part series that must be read in order and this review will blow the ending of book 1 for you so STOP NOW!!!  You’ve been warned SPOILERS ahead!

This is the second in the Nevermore series. This book had a scene that moved me to tears, so do have a hanky ready. I found out more about the Nevermores and the drug that created them in this middle book. I also discovered some human monsters.

The things I liked about this book were the growth of Mara and the evolution of the Nevermores. These are not your typical zombies and they are changing and becoming more complex. Mara is stepping up and becoming a strong and compassionate person.

Although I enjoyed the first story, when the military (or what people believe should be passed for the military) show up, I'm immediately turned of. It's one of the reason I don't really read this genre. I would have enjoyed it more had Mara and Bas stayed out on their farm with their dogs trying to survive. They seemed to have a good thing going adjusting and then it was shattered by the introduction of madmen. I know it makes for suspenseful reading and such but I just can't get with it. Altho ...more

Shannon Mayer is an incredible writer. I have read most of her books, and loved them all. This second book in the Nevermore Series is pretty exciting. It is fast paced and entertaining. I read it in a couple of hours. I need to read the next book in this series to see what happens.

I received an ARC of this book and this is my honest opinion.

This is part two of a trilogy. Mara and Bastian are trying to adjust to their new reality. They are wondering how much longer they will be able to be together. If that wasn't enough, the military gets involved and Mara and Bastian have to fight to survive and for each other. This series shows that the 'monster' isn't always the obvious one. Sometimes humans are much more dangerous than any so called 'monster'.

Bound continues where Mara and Sebastian's story left off in Sundered and while their location has changed to a secret military encampment, their adventure is far from over. The action and danger does not let up, and is a daily part of their lives, only it is not just the Nevermores, but other humans with invested interests who pose a threat. Fearing that she is losing Sebastian to the Nevermore drug, Mara dares to hope that rumours of a cure are true and is willing to risk anything to save hi ...more
Mara and Bastian are captured by the military at their home and taken to a prison camp where Mara is told she has to train the monsters to obey her like Bastian, so they can be used for military purposes. Vincent wants to use an army of monsters to attack his enemy who is working on a cure. Not trusting Vincent, Mara is convinced that they must escape or die.

I certainly didn't like this book as much as the first one in the series. I was still interested in the relationship between Mara and Basti

I had some issues with this trilogy due to not being a fan of post apocalyptic stories and due to the fact that my husband has end-stage kidney failure. I have read most of Ms. Mayer’s other works and I am a huge fan of her writing. Ms. Mayer’s does not let you down when it comes to her character development, her storyline and her amazing ability to draw you into the story and have you biting your nails as you turn the pa
