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?

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 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

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 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.

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.

a tad disappointed

I tried really hard but the book just didn't hold my interest. In order to be fair I did complete reading it. It was well written but didn't live up to its promise.

Originally reviewed on Amazon June 8, 2016.

I was given this book in advance for an honest review. Let me just say, I wasn't disappointed
It's one of the best books I've ever read! It's definitely going to be another Best-selling series! I can't wait for Book two!
It will keep you reeling page by page. I started reading it this morning and didn't stop except to feed the kids.. All other things I had planned for the day went out the window!
Fate Bound is unlike any other shifter series. It's compl

This book is awesome it sees a different perspective and that not everything is decided by species its what people believe that counts. I can't wait till the next book and see where story leads. Having the two male leads have a close but unsteady relationship makes it all the more interest with the female stuck in the middle of them. I would recommend reading this book if your interest is in the supernatural

Hybrid alert!!!!

A great hybrid story that hits you in the feelings. Ava is a human one minute wolf the next hybrid the next ........ Her confusion make interesting reading as her story develops so does you interest what seemed like just another shifter book turns exceptional as the story developed I can't wit to read the next book

Knowing this is to be a trilogy I must say it's off to a good start. Interesting characters. The story is interesting, the characters are good even though the plot gets a bit muddled. Looking forward to the next book.
