The only thing worse than having no family at all, is having a family that is out to hurt you. That would all be bad enough for a normal 17-year-old, but it's even worse for Alec Graves. A shape shifter's pack, his family, is the only thing stopping the other preternatural creatures out there from killing them.
Alec's pack isn't just neglectful, he's pretty sure that his father wants him dead. Alec is about to be sent to the front lines of a war between his people and everything else that goes bump in the night. His only chance of survival is to convince everyone around him that he's the perfect soldier, but there are lines that Alec won't cross, not for any price.
Publisher's Note: Dean Murray's ongoing Reflection Series has been a stunning success with hundreds of thousands of copies in circulation, and a rich, complex world where choices—right or wrong—have real, profound consequences. Unsatisfied with the restrictions imposed on him by writing inside of the conventional series structure, Dean has returned to Sanctuary and the characters so many fans have fallen in love with.
Bound is the first in Dean's new Dark Reflections novels, an alternate timeline set in the same world and featuring many of the same characters, but with a profoundly different backstory.
Dean finally answers many of the questions that his most dedicated readers have been asking themselves for years. What would have happened if Alec's father hadn't been murdered by the Coun'hij, how would Adri's life have changed if her family hadn't been shattered in a horrific accident?
The answers may surprise you, but one thing is for sure; you'll see new sides of familiar faces and when all is said and done, you'll never be able to look at some of them the same.
Readers new to Dean Murray's writing can start with Bound in the Dark Reflections Series or Broken in the Reflections Series.

Wish more of this back story was in book 1
And this book had more of the continuing story. It's still good, but I was left wanting more of what happens next and this book gave me more what happened first. Still intrigued and left wanting more answers. Hopefully they come in the future.
This was a hard read for me in the beginning because I felt loyal as a reader to the other books in the series, so if you're following the series give this book a fair chance. It really has to be read without comparisons to the other books. It's a totally different, hypothetical, and horrific at times, alternate universe that hinges on Agony NOT killing Alec's dad. Like I said, it was a hard read for me until I mentally separated the two universes and got into the story. Not sure how this is going to play into the whole reflections series, but I'm excited to see what happens next!
Awesome book (Bound)!!!!!!!
This book was awesome there Is so much I could say about this book that I love but the main thing is. That I love the plot and it's filled with information with the story and everything is backed up and covered there's nothing unexplained unless its covered later!!!!! And I love that in this twist in Alec's history he still is this awesome self sacrificing person everyone go read this book and in that fact go read all of Dean's books
