Best ending to this series! more then i could of asked for!
I am completely blown away and in love with Stormy Smith!

Such a incredible series.
A world filled with magic, romance and danger...Amelia is a stunningly strong lead with relatable characteristics!

4.5 stars -- Another fabulous beta read!!

Solid conclusion to the Amelia/Aidan trilogy! I really appreciated all the little tie-ins with things from the previous 2 books. And holy cow did some things go in a completely different direction than I was expecting! Totally kept me on my toes.

I always find it difficult to review the final books in a series, b/c I don't want to give things away!! Plus, at this point I think my reading slump has instead turned into a review slump where I'm just not sure

I read bound by spells then straight after Bound By Prophecy so I was very lucky in that way and what an amazing conclusion to the series.

I completely adore this series! Stormy is one of my favourite authors she takes you on an adventure and you don’t want to come back! its tricky reviewing a third book without spoiling the whole series so lets talk about MICAH first. The love of my life! haha he’s amazing! my favourite character in the series! Stormy writes him so well! she’s makes him so addic

This book is a YA, third book in the series. I received an arc of this book. Be jealous. :)
One thing that immediately stood out was the fact that we get multiple POV’s! I love being able to be inside all the different characters heads. It was so fricking great!
Her writing has advanced significantly since her first book. Her first book was great, don’t get me wrong, her second book was even better. And this one, well, I am exc

AMAZING CONCLUSIN TO AN AWESOME TRILOGY! This book was everything I hoped it would be and much more!
Bound by Prophecy is a strong 5 star book that leaves a reader crying while saying goodbye (or see you later maybe) to this wonderful world and unforgettable characters!
Everything wrapped up pretty nicely but still open for possible future work. This book is full of unexpected twists and turns that leave me wondering if anyone but Stormy Smith could have pulled this off! Looking back at the whol

This book was everything I hoped it would be and more!! Such a great conclusion to an amazing series!! I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading, wondering what was going to happen next. Amelia was so amazing in this book, she really grew into herself and became what I'd hoped she be. And Aidan, oh how I love him! I love Amelia and Aidan's relationship and how I'd evolved in this book. So happy with how it turned out! And you know who I ended up really rooting for in th ...more

I have waited with bated breath for this book to be released! I must have managed to do something right in my life because I was lucky and blessed enough to receive an ARC of this beauty!

I thoroughly enjoyed Stormy's creation! She has outdone herself with this book and her growth as a writer is overtly evident. Some things were not as they had initially appeared and new revelations and character growth made for some very interesting twists. There was not a single thing about this book that I did

From the first page to the last, I was once again captivated by Aidan and Amelia's story. The prophecy can finally be fulfilled, or can it? I kept notes as I read, wanting to make sure I touched on each character's development and decisions made for this ARC review and just cannot put into words the emotions and surprises found in the pages of this book. Ms. Smith has once again woven a fabulous story that will keep your attention to the end. This will be one of my go to reads when nothing else ...more

This was a fantastic follow up to book 2! Amelia, Aiden, Rhi, Bethany, and my favorite Micah are all intricately intertwined as they attempt to control the Keeper and destroy the Queen's rule. Bethany has delivered some of the best lines in the series and this is no exception, with true laugh out loud moments. I really liked the pace, action, up and down emotional tugs, and some very unexpected situations/ reveals. I was in the beginning sta

Just like Stormy's first two books in the Bound Series, Prophecy had me constantly wishing I could read faster because I couldn't wait to see what happened in the next chapter. There were several times I thought "Wait, whaaaat???" when I wasn't expecting the twists in this beautiful story. I was pleased to find the truth behind several of the characters and like other reviewers have mentioned, the character development throughout the series is amazing. I hope this turns into a movie because I wa ...more

Although the start of this book was a little drawn out, there was a pivotal moment that accelerated the story forward and never let up. The end gave closure, yet left enough open to keep me wanting more from the series. Highly recommend the entire series!

Bound by Prophecy is the third installment in the Bound series by Stormy Smith. Like its predecessor, it picks up where the second book left off – straight into the action.
Amelia had fallen into a kind of coma after the battle at Cresthaven and Aidan could only reach her in his animal form.

I felt that I could have used a quick reminder or short summary of what happened in the previous books, even though I read them, but unlike the other two which I read almost simultaneously, there were several

BOUND BY PROPHECY BY: STORMY SMITH A JOINT REVIEW FROM BOOKWORM COALITION!! Wow. Bound by Prophecy, the much anticipated ending to the Bound series...I feel like this is usually the point where I tell you how bittersweet this ending was, because while it was AWESOME, it was also the END. But here's the thing, I can't say it was anything other than sweet. Smith did a wonderful job wrapping everything up while still leaving other story lines open for more to come in the future, which I LOVED! So y ...more

The Bound series was one of the first I had the opportunity to review as a blogger, which means it holds a very special place in my heart. I read books one and two as parts of blog tours and was lucky enough to also receive the final book, which I have been saving for this event. I'm happy to say that Bound by Prophecy was a fantastic conclusion to the trilogy!

Book three of this series picks up right after we left off at the end of Bound by Spells. Amel

We’re back with Amelia, Aiden, Micah and the rest of the gang. Amelia knows what she has to do in order to bring all the people back together so that the immortal races can find peace, and Julia’s reign of terror can be put to an end. Aiden has his obligations too, and not just to Amelia. But he knows that her end game is what is best for everyone in the end, even if it costs them right now. So, they head off on their trek in this final installment of their story. (Worry not, my faithful, Ms. Sm ...more

4.5 for the whole story...

I love love Amelia and Aidan... I liked at first how she kept fighting him, the only thing I didn't like was how she didn't fully trust what they had for a really long time!

I loved all the other characters I love that I truly got to know them

Great story ;)

Not sure how I felt about this last book. Definitely not my fav. Review to come as a series review.

Amelia has grown! I was worried going in that the book would fall flat for getting us through Amelia's Keeper powers. Yet we get something a little different other than her finding a way to work with what she has. I enjoyed this. She's come into her own with help from someone we didn't expect. She finally faces the magic and love that she's been scared of for so long. We even end with a fight that's not as deadly as it could have been. It moves quick and keeps us listening yet with Amelia and Ai ...more

This book is one I had been waiting for. Bound By Spells ends on such a note that waiting was difficult. I wanted to know how things were going to turn out for Amelia and Aidan, especially, but also for Micah, Bethany, Cole, and the rest of the mages and animages.

This was such a book of revelations. If you follow Stormy on social media, you might remember that she mentioned that we’d find out who/what Charlie and Onyx are. We do and it is perfect. The whole scene where this transpires is great.

I thought this was a great way to tie up this series. The author kept me on my toes with this book. I never knew what to expect next. I was constantly trying to figure out how things were going to play out.

I loved the romance in this book. The connection between Amelia and Aidan was just as wonderful as ever in this book. I loved watching their relationship develop even more in this book. I think they are fantastic together and they have amazing chemistry.

OMG. I loved this part. But it was so hard for me to get into it. Why? not because the story was bad or the writing was horrible. It was because I had "read" previous 2 parts listening to an audiobook which is simply amazingly narrated.

But book's so hard to review it and not to put any spoilers!

This book is an awesome finale of Aidan/Amelia story. Book picks up where the second part left us and we can see that the chemistry betw

"Bound by Prophecy" was the most magical of the books so far in this series. There were great outcomes in this installment that I enjoyed very much.

Stormy Smith has crafted characters you can fall in love with, and care for them as if they were your real life friends. Amelia's character evolved so much in "Prophecy" that she was almost a whole new person. She became stronger and more responsible. She still had her reckless tenden

I was so thrilled to complete Amelia and Aidan's trilogy and am blown away by the feedback. Here is what Serena Chase, USA Today's Happy Ever After blogger and author of Eyes of E'veria series, had to say:

"With dissent in the ranks, unknown friends hiding among enemies, strange new clues to decode and an unexpected layer of origin that deepens the tale as it pulls it toward a poignant and satisfying face-off with the enemy, there is no shortage of surprises in book three of the Bound series.
