*Review* Bond to Break by Ginna Moran

Genre: YA Paranormal
Published: April 11, 2017
Pages: 360


Planning the ultimate act of revenge is easy for seventeen-year-old Mira Everson when she has nothing left to lose. After sacrificing her freedom to save her ex-boyfriend, Nate Burnham, Mira must test her limits to discover what she’s capable of. Endowed with dark powers due to a magical bond with Nate, Mira must risk losing everything good within her in a war she never wanted to be a part of—if she is to survive.

Unable to accept that Mira wants to fight their battle alone, Nate turns to the creature world for help in rescuing her from the hands of their enemies. Immersing himself deeper in the creature world turns out to be more than Nate bargained for. A shocking discovery makes him question what he’s doing with his life—because as it turns out, his enemies might’ve been right all along.

With enemies on both sides of the war between science and magic blurring the lines between friends and foes, Nate and Mira must figure out where their loyalty lies—and if it’s with each other. Can they survive with their lives and hearts intact, or will their unbreakable bond be their undoing?


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 story makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

So this is the third book in the Finding Nate series, but the first one that I've personally read. Now I'm slightly familiar with the universe here from having read Destined to Dream like two years ago, but I was in no way up to date with this particular storyline. While the details about why people are they way they are, and how they got to where they are now are sort of covered in this book so I didn't feel completely lost, I was very clearly missing a lot of pertinent backstory and that caused a bit of an issue for me. I would not recommend reading this series out of order.

What I liked in spite of my issues were the descriptions. Ms. Moran paints a very vivid picture of what's going on with her words, so I felt like I was right there with Mira and Nate. I may have missed out on some of the inside jokes and delightful anecdotes from their past, but I was thrown right into the mix in their present when I arrived. And we hit the ground running. It was certainly an exciting ride.

Overall I give Bond to Break 3.5 out of 5 stars. It was a good book, but because I had not read the previous books in the series, my experience reading it was less than ideal, and not quite as enjoyable. So just start at the beginning of the series to avoid making the same mistake I did. - Katie
