Release (& Review) Day: UNBOUND by Sara Humphreys

Hi all!

Today is the official release day of Unbound, a novella in the Amoveo Legends series by Sara Humphreys!   

Book Blurb
The forces that bind them can also tear them apart…

Zachary McKenna is a warrior shapeshifter from the Lion Clan, trying to catch a break in the sun and surf of Mexico.  Mai Tais and scantily clad beach bodies are just what he needs after his last battle.  But the fun doesn’t last long before a beautiful young woman is mugged on his doorstep and Zach is pulled right back into the fray.
Zach has no idea of the danger Annabelle has unwittingly brought to his doorstep, until he discovers that losing her will almost certainly destroy him…

Rating: ***** (5/5)

     Okay, so I’m coming into this series with this book (which is book #7 in the Amoveo Legend series).  I’m hooked.  Seriously.  Just like that…hooked.  I need to get the first six books and get busy reading them; I found the Amoveo abilities incredibly intriguing & this book makes me want o go back and read the rest of them so that I can learn more about this amazing world that Sara created.
     The chemistry between Zachary and Annabelle leaps off the page, and the characters have depth.  I was in love with Zachary before I was even halfway through the book; Annabelle is strong and fierce…my favorite kind of heroine.  She’s vulnerable and makes mistakes, but she doesn’t back down from what she knows she wants.  

*I was provided an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

    1. It was really good; I read through it very quickly -- I couldn't put it down!

  3. Were you ever lost in Unbound bc you hadn't read the rest of the series?

    1. That's a really good question & I'm a little mad at myself that I didn't think to include my answer in my original post.

      I found that there were minor things that grabbed my attention & that I didn't quite understand but had a loose grasp on. It didn't loose me or make me feel like I didn't know what was going on - rather the opposite actually. The little pieces on the history of the Amoveos & their powers that I didn't understand were intriguing and only made me want to read the other books in the series. The whole novella is beautifully crafted in that way; it just draws you in.
