*Review* Bound by Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor

Genre: Paranormal
Published: April 17, 2018
Pages: 361

Magnus Blackwell’s past is about to catch up with him.

An evil force has seized New Orleans. Pestilence, suffering, and darkness cloak the city. The citizens are scared and need their mambo to guide them, but Lexie Arden can’t help anyone. A diabolical presence has taken Lexie’s power and severed her ties with the other side. 

Magnus Blackwell is fighting demons of his own. Torn between his devotion to Lexie and a spirit from his past, Magnus’s loyalty is put to the test. He must revisit his sins to uncover the key to the hatred ripping the city apart. If he doesn’t, Lexie’s reign as mambo will end.

Their search for answers leads them deep into the darker realms of voodoo—until a desperate Lexie does the unthinkable, and Magnus can do nothing to spare her from her fate.

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.

When things started going wrong for Lexie, I kept holding out hope that she'd quickly find a resolution and things would get back on track for her and Magnus. Obviously the book wasn't going to work that way, but I hoped it would anyway.

As it was, this book kept me flipping the pages, anxious to see how Lexie would handle everything and if she would stay on the right path. Overall I give this book 4.873 stars. - Katie
