And POOF...just like that you open the pages to this book and it instantly binds itself to you and doesn't release you until you have reached the last page. What an incredibly written, intriguing, suspenseful, exciting, a bit nerve wracking read. The story line picks up from the first in this series and has you meet the newly appointed, newly married Mambo, Lexi, who has opened her shop for all things spiritual, all things voodoo, and even a space for her to work personally with clients who wish ...more

Bound is book two in this series by Alexandrea Weis. I've been a fan of PNR for years, and this book isn't your typical paranormal. Even though we are dealing with Voodoo, magic, and ghosts. Lexie is living in New Orlean's as the new Mambo of the Voodoo culture. She has Magnus her ghost spirit guide and everything seems fine until it doesn't. Literally, everything goes to shit in a matter of minutes from the moment Lexie loses her magic. Ghosts start to pop up all over the place, the c

Bound is the second book in the Magnus Blackwell Series, but there is a prequel Novella called Blackwell and Damned is book one.  I have been riveted by this exceptional series, and have loved every single moment engrossed in each page. After the previous brilliant book, I couldn’t wait to continue the story, and had so much expectation and anticipation for this book.

I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

This book sucked me right back into Lexie's life. I was excited to see Lexie doing her job as mambo of New Orleans. I wasn't really prepared for things to get flipped upside down in her life, although I probably should have expected it from this writing duo.

Bound: A Magnus Blackwell Novel (Book 2) by Alexandrea Weis is book two in her Magnus Blackwell series. These books can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest reading them in order to help enrich your enjoyment of this series. It will help with background information to understand characters better. I enjoyed this book and it is my favorite in this series yet. This author's writing style is so easy flowing and engaging. She pulled me in right from the beginning of the story. Her characters ...more

Holy Cow what a book! The writing duo of Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor have gone far beyond this readers expectations and written a phenomenal book/series that will leave you spellbound and craving more.

Bound is Book 2 of the series and continues with Lexi setting up her shop in downtown New Orleans as well as continuing her role as the new Mambo. Of course Magnus is tagging along as her spirit guide. While Lexi is embracing her role as Mambo, there are those that are out to destroy her and t

Another amazing book! Love the suspense. Running all of the people in my mind and all of the possibilities. It's nice to read a book and learn about the rich history of the town's. New Orleans definitely has a lot of history. I can't wait to see where Lexie and Magnus end up next and how her new role will work it's way out. Congratulations Alexandrea! It truly is magnificent. I read it in one day. Didn't want to put it down

5 out of 5 stars

The story Bound: A Magnus Blackwell Novel (Book 2) by Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor is a book in the horror/ghost genre. It is a story that involves voodoo and magic. This is just the type of book I have always loved reading. I didn’t want it to end. It is the 3rd book I have read in the series as there is book 1 and a prequel. This is a series that I would highly recommend reading in order as in each book

Book 2 in the Magnus Blackwell series, and this picks straight up from where book 1 Damned finished, so make sure you read this first - this is a fabulous series, I'm really loving it!

Lexi is trying to establish herself as the newly appointed Mambo having also just got married. She has opened her own voodoo / spiritual shop and even has her own place in there to work with clients needing spiritual help. She's doing her best to care for those around her who need her help with Magnus still there a

Bound _ a Magnus Blackwell novel.
I had read a previous novel featuring the mysterious Magnus Blackwell and I loved it, so I was keen to see if this one lived up to my expectations! From page one I knew I was not going to be disappointed. We are immediately sucked into the New Orleans underworld of voodoo and spirits as we meet up again with Lexie and her spirit guide Magnus. Lexie is now Mambo but an appearance by a mysterious spirit in the form of Magnus dead wife leads her to lose her ability

A phenomenal instalment to the Blackwell series

BOUND is book two of the Magnus Blackwell series, and boy did it knock me right off my feet. Once again Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor have collaborated to bring their readers another phenomenal instalment to this series. This was a book that had me dreading its end - I simply didn't want to reach that final page. All of my expectations have been well and truly exceeded.

Wow Lexie and Magnus are back, I'm even more addicted to this series than ever before, and the authors have me ready to beg for more.

I finally know who that green eyed cat (and this spirit likely possessed everyone that had those bright green eyes in book one) and it was a surprise I wasn't expecting. Ice read about Baron Samedi before but love the way the authors blend the other voodoo gods, NOLA history and tons of learning information into the story so you're learning new things, absorbing o

4-star review

“One cannot embrace the darkness without giving up something of the light.”

Bound by Alexandrea Weis is a fantastic read! This is the second book in Alexandrea’s Magnus Blackwell series, it’s also the first book that I have read in the series, with that being said I would suggest reading book one first. Bound was a fairly easy book to follow but I feel like I would have appreciated this story more having read all of the backstory from the first book. Bound is a

4 Star Rating

Bound was the first book I’ve read by Alexandrea Weis and the first I’ve read of the Magnus Blackwell book series as well. I would recommend starting the series from the very beginning to get the most out of the books/backstory as you would with any book series, but starting at book 2 didn’t make me enjoy the story any less!
I really enjoyed the writing and imagery in Bound instantly, the paranormal has always intrigued me so

Something is definitely wrong. As pestilence comes down on New Orleans, Lexie begins to feel strange. Her power disappears overnight and she knows something is definitely not right.

No powers, nightmares, and being challenged for her rightful place as mambo, Lexie knows she is too weak to fight. This is the time when she needs her ghost with her, but this may not be possible. His protection may not always be there when she needs him. The Dark side is calling to her to join it, while her Light sid

This is the second/third book in the Magnus Blackwell novels (there is book one and a prequel), I would highly recommend that you read the other books in the series, and then this one as they do flow, but they could be read as stand-alone if you didn’t fancy the first ones.

What a fantastic continuation of the series! Was very impressed with the second book and felt it was rich in detail. It would stand alone well enough but only fully appreciated if the reader has already experienced book one. The plot and pace move quickly. I was literally so entranced by the book I couldn’t put it down before finishing it. Extremely well written. I felt as though I was walking the streets of New Orleans with Lexie and Magnus.

Outstanding! I absolutely loved this novel. It picked up where the last book left off, and pulled me in to the story instantaneously. Do yourself a favor though and read Blackwell first, then read Damned. Even though you could probably read this as a stand-alone, you'll enjoy this more if you read the prequel and first book first.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

This is book two in the Magnus Blackwell series, and you really SHOULD read book one, Damned, first. It's not totally necessary to read Blackwell (0.5) but I would recommend you do, it just gives you a better understanding of Blackwell and the sort of person he used to be.

I loved Bound, gave it 5 stars, but here?? Really struggled. I had to keep putting this down, and reading a bit of something else in between, and then

After I finished Damned, I immediately dove back into the world of the Magnus Blackwell series to read Bound.

Although I suppose I shouldn't be, I was a bit surprised that two of the issues I had with Damned were a continued bother to me in Bound.

I still find Will a confusing character. Bound opens to Will once more disliking Magnus, despite having seemingly warmed to him at the end of Damned. He also flip-flops several times between supporting Lexie and her calling above all else, and accusing h

“Something bad is coming.”
This is the second book in the Magnus Blackwell series by Alexandrea Weis (with Lucas Astor) and I would recommend that the books are read in order and that you read the others before starting in on this one. It will make a lot more sense if you have the background story of Magnus and Lexi, the main two characters in the book. I would have to say this is my favorite book of the series so far. It was so well written with a vivid and descriptive background of the city of
