Ava has been on her own since her father passed away from cancer. She was bounced from foster home to foster home. Now at the age of 19 she's on her own. No family and no friends.

She's on her way home one night when she is attacked my a mugger. Not wanting to give up the only picture of her and her father that she has, she fights back. Only to be stabbed repeatedly. She can feel herself dying, fading away.

Out of no where she hears someone approaching her. She looks up and into the mos

I started reading this book when I really shouldn't have. Now I'm behind on my review reading and that's trouble!! I couldn't help but keep reading because I was engaged and invested in these characters and the story. I just had to know what was going to happen. Now I'm left wanting more and I REALLY cannot read the next book right now. Ugh. Torture. Ha.

Content: mild swearing throughout, kissing

Horribly boring among other blech-ness.

Overall, I thought this was a really good book. I wish there was more backstory to Ava's life before she gets turned. The beginning just needed to be developed more. You don't get a clear sense of who she is before all the events happen. I loved her and Jack! I do feel that it was slightly "insta-lovey" but I understand a part of that because of the "halfs" concept. Usually books like this with use the word mate, but I like how it is something all immortals have, not just the werewolves. Ava see ...more

Maybe I’ve just read too many werewolf books lately because this storyline seemed old. I am not really interested in reading more. Maybe if I had read this one before the others?
I really enjoyed this book and story-line plot. It kept me interested from beginning to end. I can't wait to see what happens next! You should definitely read this if you enjoy vampires, witches, and shifters!!!

The summary for "Fate Bound" describes a unique and interesting plot. Yet, the reviews were mixed. Either people really liked this read or they really didn't enjoy it. So, I decided to read it for myself and decide.

Yes. The plot is unique and had great potential; however, the author was in too big of a hurry and didn't take sufficient time to properly world build, provide sufficient characterization or do the initial work necessary to allow readers to truly feel invested into the story and chara

I enjoyed some of Madeline Freeman's other work and I read an intriguing excerpt of Fate Bound at the end of the Clearwater Witches series. I was pretty surprised at the tone and twists in this. Book and was impressed by the range with which Freeman writes.

You may have heard the saying that "wolves mate for life" or stories about should mates being two halves of a whole. Well, this story takes those concepts to a whole new level. If you're a dan of supernatural suspense, mystery, and romance, y

I enjoyed this book but the entire storyline felt rushed to me, the author didn't take the time to really iron out the characters at all and I didn't feel the connection to them that I've felt with other books. It was like the author was trying to pack as much in as possible into the first book to keep people reading it but it was just a bit confusing at times.

I liked the idea of the plot, and having brothers be enemies and different species was very interesting but again it felt forced and rush

Ava is a newly turned hybrid werewolf adjusting to life as a werewolf with some vampire tendencies. She is an abomination to the witches who want her dead, and the vampires want her to create more hybrids. Ava's alpha Jack turns out to be her other half, her soul mate. Poor Jack is having an awful time keeping her safe, as everyone wants a piece of Ava. I enjoyed this book and was sad but not surprised about the cliffhanger ending. Until the next installment...

Ava was just a lost girl until she met a vampire and a werewolf. Jack tried to save her when she was mugged and left for dead but Luke got her first. Now she's the first vampire-werewilf hybrid and everyone wants her. Jack is her soulmate and will do anything to protect her. When she's kidnapped and forced to make a hybrid like her more troubles arise. Cant wait for the next book.

Dnf at 57%. I usually force myself to finish a book. I hate to leave a half read book but it just wasn't for me. If the blurb interest you, you should give this book a try because you might be one of those readers that loves the book. Unfortunately, I just wasn't one of them. I will still try other books from this author to see if it was just this book that didn't hook me in.

I really enjoyed the creativity used in this book! The story was great. The characters were believable as well as likable...except for the bad guys. I really want to read the next book! I seriously recommend this book!

Such a good book. Not many have a hybrid angle which was fantastic. Loved all the details and characters. Loved Luke and Jack plus the whole them brothers part. Such a good read.

Hard to put down!

Very compelling and easy to get lost in this world. Poor Ava doesn’t seem to catch a break in life, other than finding her other half in Jack. I love a strong heroine who just looks at a problem and pulls up her big girl pants. Definitely worth a read.

DNF The blurb sounded good but the story itself was meh. It seemed too much like the storyline flitted from one thought to another without much to tie them together. There were some sections I felt belonged in another part of the story of what I did read. Could use another round of editing as well.

Nothing super special or captivating about this book. Wasn’t awful wasn’t super fantastic if anything I’ll keep reading the series to see if it gets better and because it’s free.

The author did an excellent job of creating a protagonist female that acts her age; not looking for a man to come save her. And the lead male isn’t “claiming his mate.” The story is intriguing, and the flow is perfect; just enough action, and the beginning of a romance. And it’s very well written.

This is an action-packed book that I could not put down. 5 stars!

Really great read! Read it in one day. Couldn't put it down
Love the idea of vampires and werewolves working together and the hybrid idea!

A nice twist

An interesting take on the vampire v werewolf v witch purpose and process. Ava would be better in her 20's, but that's not really critical. Fun book.

3.5-4 stars I think the series has promise.

Very nice book. Not your normal wolf book and i like that there were parts that aren't too easy to guess what happened next. Can't wait to read the next book.

I enjoyed reading this. The hybrid and how she is going to survive. Can’t wait to read the next book in series and see what happens next.
