This book was interesting. The cover is gorgeous and the description intrigued me. The story had potential to be on par with Game of Thrones, but there were odd time jumps and narration when somethings would have been better served dramatized. There was no love story, so I found that wanting. The ending felt a bit rushed, and the character's growth was a bit rushed as well. As a reader, I didn't feel like I grew with Merione, or understood how she got her powers, knowledge of plants and spells. ...more

I just finished reading SpellBound by Thalia Blake. I must admit, I was captivated by the cover design of this book - the artwork is mesmerizing. The story itself was good, but not as captivating as the book cover. The story is interesting, but seems to be lacking in sufficient backstory about the loving (?) family relationship between Ezabelle (and her obsession with ruling), and Merione (and her mystical powers). The storyline timeline seems to jump, with little explanation, making it difficul ...more

Wow this is a Fantastic read. Once you start reading you won't want to put it down. I was so into spellbound that I didn't realize the ending had came. It has Epic Magic. 2 sisters looking for there destiny. They have a very special Bond will that Bond stay strong. One becomes Queen and the other is the Queens way of knowing whats going to happen. I Love the Era this was written in. My favorite Character was Merione, she has to choose who to be faithful to. This is an Epic read, you definitely d ...more

OMG! Talk about living on edge. A whirlwind of activities and events that keep you flipping page after page. One rollercoaster ride with a plethora of emotions to sort through.

I am so glad I discovered this new series from Thalia Blake, because it hits all of my favorite tropes: fantasy, adventure, dragons, and of course, brave women who don't need a Prince Charming to rescue them. SpellBound was such a pleasure to read, I couldn't put it down, and stayed up way past my bedtime more than one night just to see what was going to happen next. Merione was a brilliant and powerful heroine, which is something that is often lacking in YA fantasy. I also loved the unique take ...more

Overall rating: 4.8.

This tale is jam packed with mystery, intrigue, corruption, and ill fated destiny! The relationship between siblings had my heart on an emotional rollercoaster! This takes the saying “things are not always the way they seem” to the next level! Absolutely loved this and I am wondering if each book in this series will be just as surprising! All my reviews are always voluntarily written.

This is an amazing fantasy story, that veered off the usual plotlines, a woman fighting against destiny. It also shows that whatever your family does, you want to stay loyal to them as much Merione loves her sister until the very end. A hope, that in the end everything will be alright. But it is further from the truth and the end of the story will surprise you. I love the plots woven into the story, bravery and family and betrayal. Magic and the uncertainty of what the future holds. I definitely ...more

I was given this book free for a honest review. There was a lot about this story that I really enjoyed, and the writing is immaculate. Ezabelle was a character that I found hard to read about--but if that is the kind of bad guy you're into this book is for you. Merione was an excellent character, but I found it both refreshing and disappointing that there wasn't any romance. All in all, I would recommend this book to another who loves a strong female lead and high fantasy magic.

I enjoyed reading this book.

Fast paced, with enough intrigue in the plot to satisfy a good adrenaline junkie, this book has a bit of it all. It caught, hooked and reeled me and did not let go till the last word.

I'm glad I came across this book. I intend to follow this series.

Overall, I was captivated by the story. There were several thrilling twists and turns and I was sucked in by Merione. The reason I didn't give it a higher rating is because there were some significant plot holes that kept pulling me out of the story. Without those problems, I think this story could have easily ranked among my favorites.
