Crescent Bound is a story about friendship, love, loss and…witches. It’s the first in a series. I was intrigued to read the story told from Alyssa’s point of view; the young, beautiful, sexy and strong female lead that has a penchant for casting spells with her friends and racing cars. From the beginning I wanted to learn more about Alyssa and her world, especially the Arcane, and was drawn in quickly as the characters were developed quite nicely. The story was full of plenty of twists and turns that left me, as the reader, unsure of what was going to happen next, or who the ‘bad guy’ was. I don’t know a whole lot about the witch world, but this book made me want to grab up all I can find! Though at times I was a bit confused as to whom the book is written for – as the main characters are teens, but the sexual content was more for a mature audience.
The only thing I would add is a really good editing. There were some grammatical errors; spelling mistakes and typo’s, and there were parts within the chapters that felt as if a block of time was lost between paragraphs – easily fixed with a little divider between sections. I wanted to know where the story went, so it was easy to overlook these things, but again, with a solid edit and better defined audience, this story would be near perfect!
Crescent Bound is a great fantasy read for those who like to lose themselves in the witch’s realm. It was fun, and I for sure will be following the series with interest – as I feel ‘Bound’ to follow these characters and see where Karli Rush takes them!
I give the book 4.5 out of 5 Stars:
Thanks for reading!
