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

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

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

This is gonna be so hard to keep short and keep all the spoilers out!
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

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

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

I don't even think I can even fathom into words how good this book was. It was emotionally gripping and had me tearing though the last 100 pages. This is a fantastic conclusion to the story of Amelia and Aiden. It had me outwardly gasping. I never felt more shocked in my entire life. I did not expect the story to go in the direction it did and I loved it! When I picked up this book I feared that I wasn't going to know what was happening because it had been so long since I had read the 2nd book, ...more

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

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
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

This was AMAZING! we couldn't have asked for a better ending to this series! Stormy has given us ultimate love, sacrifice, heartache, and a epic battles between good and bad! what more could we really want right?

I loved this series! I loved the characters and I hate to see a series end but if it does I like to see it all end with a bang and flourish like this one! I was really surprised by somethings that happened in the en

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 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

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

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

I think these books are my favourite series of this year without a doubt. I love all the characters good and bad they all had great purpose and great moments.

Amelia Bradbury (Elder) is out from under the reigns of Queen Julia & Cresthaven.
Aidan Montgomery is kind of fallen for her.
The Keeper has his power encased in Amelia.
Can Aidan (AniMage) rescue her from the Keepers holds?

I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.

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.

Fantastic third installment to an absolutely wonderful series! In this book, the author explains so much and pulls everything all together for a great conclusion to the prophecy. Through multiple POVs, we get to see parts of the story and get to know characters that couldn't be done through only a single character's eyes. The story starts right where book 2 left off, with Amelia shut down from using all her power to help save the women. She and Aidan are finally together, and we learn who can be ...more

Have you ever picked up a book, starting reading and it resonated so deeply that you think there couldn't have been a better time for you to have read it? That is what Bound By Prophecy was for me. That is how much I love this book. My life took an unexpected turn so I dove into this book hoping for a distraction. What I got was so much more than that. It was comfort. It was wisdom. It was the help I didn't know I needed. Even putting all of that aside, I was blown away by how much Stormy Smith ...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 ;)

What a Incredible Ending...!
Couldn't Have Asked For A Better Ending...!

Amelia, is such a strong female character & I Loved how she came to terms with her Powers,and learnt control over them. She is an relatable character and I Loved seeing the relationship develop further with Her & Aiden. I also think Aiden Became a strong lead character, with everything he has been through.

I liked how she tied all the remaining characters together with what they went on to do with themselves after the

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.

Aidan's love for Amelia grows stronger by the hour. He will fight and face any obstacle in the world as long as he can help her heal and keep her safe. Their journey together to fulfill the prophecy is just beginning.

This is an exciting and immensely creative book. Although I am not into fantasy or paranormal, this series has been a high point in my reading. The creative plotline, characters, and writing style immediately drew me in.

Although this third book in the series resolves many of the qu

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
