Smashwords book reviews by Ali Cross

  • BOUND (#1 in The Crystor Series) on Oct. 25, 2011

    BOUND is a tricky tale that takes your heart and mind on an exciting danger-filled journey. You start out with normal things, people you know, places you can relate to, only to discover that things are not as you'd expected, people are not just people and anything can happen. At least, that's how the story was for me. I liked Kira and could immediately relate to her feelings of insecurity and reclusiveness. So when Kira had to adapt to the changes around her, to learn and grow, I grew right along with her. C.K. Bryant does a brilliant job of writing a paranormal romance that combines what we know with what we don't, love with hate, danger with hope. She had me turning the page, sitting on the edge of my seat and wishing I could read the next book in the series right away. A truly excellent modern-day tale that I highly recommend for fans of YA novels that feature a strong female protagonist.
