Bex (Beckie Bookworm)
This book was so very unique and I don’t think I’ve read anything quite like it before I couldn’t put it down I was that engrossed in the unfolding story.
It definitely crosses genre boundaries and if I had to classify it i’d go with post apocalyptic dystopian fantasy romance.

Its predominantly plot driven rather than romance and very slow-burn which did work for it and It focuses more on the actual story rather than the romance itself which also wasn’t incredibly explicit.
It’s definitely more of

This is a beautiful love story set in New Zealand that I could not put down. The tension, the swooning, the slow burn—it was SO GOOD. I read an earlier draft of it, so I’m so excited to get a newer updated copy. If you like romance, definitely add this to your TBR!

Dust Bound is a sweeping, imaginative adventure-romance. I was blown away by this book. It's AMAZING. Fraser writes beautiful, lyrical passages that really pull you into the minds of her characters and tug at your heart strings. I was sobbing at how poignant and gorgeous the prose was. SO GOOD.

The story itself is unique and inventive. I was never bored but was constantly surprised. It has so much heart woven throughout all the magic and romance and intrigue. I really hope there is a book two to

I don’t normally read dystopian novels, which is actually why I wanted to read this book. I want to give dystopian novels more of a chance, and I’m glad I read this one! It probably helps that I saw the word Fae in the synopsis 😏

In this story we follow Adelia Lark, or Addie, who lives in a compound with people who are shielded from the Dust in the air from the Fae that kills people. Addie is different and it does not effect her. So, when a boy leaves and is taken by the Fae, she decides she need

I really enjoyed it. This novel is unique. I've read a lot of books about the fae. Books where they are lovers, fighters, sinners, saints, warmongers, generally bad guys but never to this scope. Lark is a hero. She's different but she has the courage to go out into the Dust, to face her nightmares, go into the belly if the beast, and still do what's right. She's not the only one. Ryder is as well but not too the same extent. It's a phenomenal story and I hope there are more to come.

At first I wasn’t quite sure where the story was going, but by the second chapter I was invested. Dust Bound is a new take on the stories of the Fae. It was interesting and I found myself pondering all the lore. I truly hope there’s another book because I really want to know what happens to Lark and Ryder. Oh, and everyone else too.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I was not too sure if I would like this book but it turned out that it was a very good book and I enjoyed it very much.

I thought the storyline was very good and this author explained all the intracies of the story.

The characters were very vital to the story in my opinion.
