Welcome to Darmid, where magic is a sin, fairy tales are contraband, and the people live in fear of the Sorcerers on the other side of the mountains.
Rowan Greenwood has everything she's supposed to want from life—a good family, a bright future, and a proposal from a handsome and wealthy magic hunter. She knows she should be content with what she has. If only she could banish the idea that there's more to life than marriage and children, or let go of the fascination with magic she's been forced to suppress since childhood.
When Rowan unknowingly saves the life of one of her people’s most feared enemies, that simple act of compassion rips her from her sheltered life and throws her into a world of magic that’s more beautiful, more seductive, and more dangerous than she ever could have imagined.
Rowan might get everything she ever dreamed of—that is, if the one thing she's always wanted doesn't kill her first.

Hard not to love a fantasy with magic, dragons, power struggles and romance. Rowen, raised in the land that killed all magical things and people, accidentally discovers she has a magic bound up in her unable to retrieve. Aren, raised by magic and all things mystical, must overcome the destructive ties that bind him if he is to help the one person about whom he cares. The adventure will lead you on through each of the Bound series. Hard to get enough of this well imaged and intellectually written journey.
Good story, fun to read.
This is a well written series that balances romance and adventure perfectly. It gives the reader a little bit of everything including the different perspectives of the characters.
