Key Plot Elements: romance; drama; paranormal and fantasy; a lovely tour of Wales; chickens; humor (well, I did mention chickens).

Essentially a story of love redeemed, but not the ending you would expect. Nothing about the Deschanels is “normal” though. A poignant and heart-warming read, it completes a love story and prepares the series reader for drama waiting on the near horizon.

While this is a bulge book, filling in the happenings after “The Illusions of Eventide” and tiding us over until th

This series just keeps getting better and better, and I just can’t seem to get enough! Beyond Eventide: Bound is different than Cradit’s other books in the series, yet the same. In Bound, we are treated to Cradit’s talent in writing a true love story. She has the ability to evoke real emotion from this reader, even some “lump in the throat” moments. Cradit is consistent in her insane ability to write complex characters and intricate storylines while delivering those laugh-out-loud “OMG…did he ju ...more

Beyond Eventide: Bound (The House of Crimson and Clover #2.5)

This is the story of Anasofiya Deschel, Finnegan St. Andrews & Aidrik the wise. It is a story of love, hope and sacrifice. It is a follows The Illusions of Eventide. It fills in the gaps and gets deeper into the lives of these three people. I really enjoyed this paranormal/fantasy, the originality of the story line and learning more of each. Ana and Finn are my favorite characters and I loved learning more of their back story.

It was hard to give this five stars...not because it wasn't good, but because I wanted more. I'm already smitten by Finn. This just showed me the depth if his love for Ana. What an incredible story highlighting their love. But also setting the stage for another story in the Deschanel family. Now, if Cradit could just figure out how to write faster

I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review - all opinions are totally mine.

Loved this addition to the series.
Aidrik has finally found a clue and realizes that Ana needs Finn.
Ana is having a rough pregnancy, and she more than misses her true love.
Thankfully, Finn has realized he's ready to fight for Ana no matter what. Have I mentioned that I love Finn?
Okay, I'm going to stop there so I don't give away the rest. You definitely need to read this story, go through their journey and find out what they choose.

But the baby must be born in wedlock. Will Finn, Anne and Tristan find Ana and Aidrik in time? And will Finn and Aidrik come to terms with the knowledge they both love Ana and she them.

Beyond Eventide: Bound is an exceptionally well written love story by the exceptionally talented author, Sarah M. Cradit. This series just gets better and better! Once I started this book, there was no putting it down.

I am a big Finn fan. I crave more of him so I was super excited to get to read this :) This book was a super extra great read :)

With any novel form Sarah M. Cradit you are drawn RIGHT into it. Her characters and writing style just hooks you. And well, Finn. I mean really.

This novella had a lot I didn't expect which I love in a story. It kept me on my toes both writing wise and emotionally. This takes place after The Illusions Of Eventide, but really give

Just let me say this first - Nicolas is still my favorite character and even though he wasn't the primary focus of this story, he has a way of dominating every chapter he's in. Nicolas showed signs of maturing and accepting some responsibility in this novella but, luckily, that in no way dampened his style of making his opinions known.

After the last book, I honestly didn't know what would happen with Finn, Ana, and Aidrik. My heart just broke for Finn and I never really connected with Aidrik, bu

This fast-paced novella gives fans of The House of Crimson and Clover series everything they were craving at the end of the Illusions of Eventide.

The sense of adventure was fun. The potential threat kept me reading long into the night--I had to find out what happened. I really enjoyed the motley group of Deschanels who were introduced in this story, and I loved getting to know Anna (half-sister of Adrienne) more. One of my favorite lines from this book is, "The threads of fate weave slowly unti

A quick, yet amazing read by Sarah M. Cradit. It continues on with Ana and Adrik and Finn and the next step in their journey of love, answers and protecting the innocent. I can't wait to see how this plays out as Ana was only a part of herself without Finn and vice versa. I can't wait to see the birth of their baby (yes, I said see as Sarah writes so vividly that I can picture things as if I were there). What happens next in the curse? How will the family move on? So many unanswered questions, a ...more

Sarah M. Cradit is without doubt becoming of of my favorite authors. Not only is she personable and answers fan mail, but actually cares about her work and your feedback. With that said, I absolutely loved novella 2.5, Beyond Eventide: Bound. It's amazing how you find yourself lost in the story and imagine yourself part of it. As I said maybe once or twice before, this story gets better and better with each new release. It has everything from romance, ( sweet mind boggling romance) to action, hu ...more

The House of Crimson and Clover is a fabulous series & Beyond Eventide: Bound did not disappoint.

Finn and Aidrik both love Ana unconditionally; and Ana, in turn, loves both Finn and Aidrik. Most importantly, Ana has learned to love and forgive herself. As much as I’m rooting for Ana’s happiness, my heart breaks for Finn, who is once again caught in the Deschanel family drama. My heart also breaks for Ana’s cousin, Anne, who yearns for Finn.

One of my favorite passages from the novel is a conv

Her depression starts to take a deep hold of her and its slowly killing her. Finn is trying to figure out what he can do to get Ana back and save The Deshanel family. Anne on the other hand has fallen for Finn and believes that he deserves better and doesn't like Ana. As this tale unfolds you will find Sarah Cradits writing is imaginative and take you ...more

Another beautiful book. Sarah M. Cradit has done it again. Beyond Eventide: Bound is a delightful bridge between books, filling in gaps and increasing the depth of the characters. The imagery is powerful; the emotion real and compelling. As with previous books it has left me wanting more. Previously Sarah has surprised and delighted me with plot twists and direction changes that are completely unexpected. I love that her mind is likely more devious than mine!

This was an all too short jaunt back to our unusual threesome, though very satisfying. I hope we see more from our new characters in the future, and as always I love time spent with Anne! My only complaint is a bit of repetition in the rehashing of details from previous books (though I loved the use of the meeting to spice up exposition). Once again, I can't wait for the next installment.

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book for honest review.

I absolutely loved this! I love how determined Finn is to get Ana back, and be a father. I love this is more of a love story. Love stories are my thing. Granted, my heart was bleeding for a while, but its totally worth it in the end. Total page turner! And that ending! Oh my gosh! So amazing!

Although better than much of the trope out there, this book was not quite as engaging as The Illusions of Eventide. When I give it 4 stars, I am comparing it to other Sarah Cradit books, which means that it might earn 5 stars when compared to other books by less talented authors. For not the first time, I wish Amazon had a 10 star system of reviews.

So, this was a continuation of the story of Anna, Finn, and Aidrik - but far from a conclusion. It is clear there is much more to come. We were intr

Finn can’t keep Anasofiya out of his mind. He knew he would do anything to be with her because his love for her was very profound. Anasofiya was suffering and losing the battle. She loved Aidrik but she loved and needed Finn too. Aidrik knew he was losing her. He had kept secrets for her but he would not lose her now so he took a stand. Above all, the Deschanel family had to unite themselves to survive and they were taking measures around that. This second book was more about sacrifices and unde ...more
