They did it again! Won my heart and made me swoon and fear and cheer and ….
This book was one of my most awaited for 2019. I read Honor Among Thieves after having read fantastic reviews by Shanah, Raven and Dani.
I didn’t know what to expect as I am (or rather was) not a scifi or space adventure fan.
I ended being swept off my feet by that book. It was totally unique, unexpected, emotional, right …well you get it I just loved it.
Honor Bound landed in my mailbox on F ...more

Honor Bound is the second installment in co-authors Rachel Caine & Anne Aguirre's The Honors series. This book picks up right where Honor Among Thieves left off. After their dangerous encounter with the Phage, a terrifying alien race capable of devouring their beloved Leviathan which are sentient beings, Zara Cole, Beatrix Teixeira, Leviathan Nadim, along with Leviathan Typhon, Starcurrent, Yusuf, Marko, and Chao Xing (C ...more
Honor Bound was a pretty good book. I will admit that at the beginning I was a bit bored with what was going on. Thankfully, it got better.
Now we are still with the same characters from the first book. Yet, Zara and the gang are still wandering into trouble. I absolutely love her and Nadim. Especially when they were both trying to figure out a solution to the same problem. Even if they viewed it differently these two worked really well together.
This book did always deliver some good twis ...more
Since I write over half a dozen ARC reviews every month I rarely review books I picked up on my own, but I just love this series so much I needed to gush about it. The style of ...more

After reading Honor Among Thieves I knew I had to read Honor Bound. I totally fell for Nadim, the living ship, and wanted to learn more about his fight with the enemies of his kind. When my writing partner decided to jump into the sequel I decided i should just go for it too and I managed to squeeze it into my reading schedule!! I was really excited...
Understand that since this is a sequel I will lightly mention details that you learn a ...more
In the amazing sequel of the phenomenal writing duo, Zara Cole, Bea, and their living spaceship/space whale Nadim will embark on a journey full of mysteries, adventure, and unstoppable action.
After the ending of the first book Honor Bound begins with Zara, Bea Nadim and the fellow Elder Typhon traveling to the Sliver where they hope to help their ships and also escape the Phage. A space-station full of aliens, different cultures, countless of different ...more
I would maybe rate it at 4.25 or 4.33 stars, when I gave the first book the full 5 star treatment. Some of this is undoubtedly ...more
The story picks up right where we were left in the first book. Zara, Nadim and the rest of the crew have a rough road,... er,... space ahead of them as they try to tackle issues that they found themselves in from Honor Among Thieves. But that’s not all! There’s more twists and turns that kept ...more
After the explosive revelations at the end of Honor Among Thieves, Honor Bound picks up the frantic pace. Zara, Nadim and crew head to Sliver to recover and refuel before continuing to figure out what to do about the Phage. Things there get...complicated, especially when they get involved with Bacia.
The book is just everything I wanted. Diversity. Aliens that aren't just hot space elves. Complex relationships and I think it's (view spoiler)[ confirmed that we ...more
I loved how it involved more of the characters, brought in new ones, and formed new bonds between them all. It also expanded the worlds so much, exploring more of space and new civilisations.
I particularly loved the Sliver. There was so much accessible detail, from the currency to the bars, to the descriptions of different aliens. The fights in the pit were some ...more
This series is SO underrated but so good, it's a shame.
Honor Bound takes place not that long after the first book, Honor Among Thieves. Zara, her crew, and the rest of the newly teamed up fleet are in need of repairs and upgrades before heading into battle against the hungry swarm that hunt Leviathan. As they end up on an outlaw run outpost called the Silver, they come across all different types of aliens and have to make a deal with the boss of the ...more
This was a great read! It picked up right after the first book and I was engaged from the beginning. I love the characters, especially Zara and Nadim and their bond. It's such an interesting idea and The Sliver planet was so much fun to experience. In this book we got to see different aliens and their characteristics, especially the Phage. There's so much going on and when the Honors bind with the Levithan and become one, they're so powerful and I wonder what that would be like.
First thing first, ZADIM and Bea!!! ...more
I enjoyed this one a lot. There was a lot more really great world building and some wonderful new characters. Of course Sliver is just as bad as it's disreputable reputation would expect and everyone find ...more
I am so confused and mixed on this series. There are some things that I just can't, nope, ugh, why?? Does it have its good parts? Yes, but the parts that I don't like are so glaring that they kind of take over, and it's all I can think about when I think about this series.
Now, you might be asking, if you don't like this series, then why did you read the sequel? Was it just to hate on it? But that's the thing, I don't hate it. I really like the sci-fi aspects to it. Honor Bound had a lot of fun, ...more
Let's try starting with the pronouns. I understand that pronouns are important to many people, and that directly using incorrect pronouns is disrespectful. However, Zara and her crew are constantly thinking of pronouns for each new species they meet even before they meet it, acting a ...more
This book felt longer than the first and to be honest, it really tested my patience and how much adrenaline my body could take at the end. I mean... Can we catch a break?
Same Review Also Posted On My Blog: dreamy Addictions
This book was one of my anticipated sequels of 2019! Last year, I loved Honor Among Thieves, the first book in this unique YA sci-fi series. So, I jumped into this book as soon as I got my hands on it. After finishing it, I was kinda left with mixed feelings. It was a good sequel but sadly I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I found the first half of the book pretty slow but I did loved the second half. The ...more
This is the 2nd book in the series and it doesn't read like it was even written by the same authors as the 1st. I really enjoyed the first book but this one is jam packed with sass to the point of annoying. Suddenly I feel like every current PC hot button is being shoved in my face - gender and race diversity is great but I don't need repeated play by plays of hair washing and slang to figure out that Zara is not Caucasian. I get it - I am a minority and it's nice to have more ...more
Honors Zara and Beatriz are the first to learn the truth about The Journey without completing their Tour. The Leviathans are being hunted by an alien being called The Phage. After rescuing the Elder Typhon and barely surviving a Phage attack themselves, Zara and the other Honors are in desperate need of help. The closest place where they may be able to find it is The Sliver, an alien outpost that caters to the whims of ...more
I enjoyed this sequel to "Honor Among Thieves" quite a lot, especially the relationships between the characters and the originality of the world. However, I think it was a bit too long and some of the parts could've been edited out. I'm still very excited about the next book though!
I'm not gonna lie, this book was one of my highest anticipated reads of the year, and so it bore the weight of my massive expectations. Even so, it somehow blew them all away, making me already resent the fact that I have to wait another year for the next book! It's so amazing, I don't know if I can even put my thoughts into words.
While the first book took place over a couple of months, this one is more condensed to a few days, I think about a week (ignoring moments of time that are breezed ove...more
