‘No good deed ever goes unpunished, Mellea…’
(BOUND, The Guardians #1)
Mellea Wendorn hasn’t exactly had a normal life. Misfortune seems to follow her, and her family, wherever she goes.
However, when Mellea stops to assist a mysterious young man suddenly her prior hardships seem trivial. His name is Leo. He is a Successor, a child of the Guardians of Selestia. He is royalty. He is handsome. And he wants Mellea completely to himself. Unable to escape the Guardian's laws, Mellea must learn the ways of the royals. She is convinced her life can’t get much worse. But when a timeworn Guardian enemy arises from the shadows, Mellea must make a choice that will change her destiny forever.
(Wow... That was a heck of a story! It was interesting, unexpected and sweet. I love Young Adult books so much and this one reminded me why. The heroine, Mellea, was strong and brave and loving. The hero, Leo, was stupborn and made me hate him right away, then we glimpse the real guy under all the stress and expectations and see him for who he really is. The love story was sweet and understated which I loved. For the first book in the series I think the story will be amazing carrying forward. I think her new family of guardians are wonderful complex character and I am looking forward to reading more of their journey. If you are a Young adult Fantasy/Dystopian lover like I am you will love this book s much as I did.)
