Publisher's Summary

One badass mercenary. Four sexy-as-sin rebels. Bound together by powerful magic and dangerous desire....

In a world ruled by magic, surviving without it means I have to be quicker, smarter, and fiercer than the magical beings that run this city.

I get by just fine working as a bounty hunter...until what should be a routine take-down of an incubus and his buddies turns into a major clusterf#ck when something inside me goes haywire.

Turns out, I do have magic. And it's so powerful, it's bonded four insanely gorgeous men to me.

They're part of an underground rebellion fighting back against the magical elite, and they claim they need my help. 

But if I agree to fight alongside them, I may be risking more than my life. I could lose my heart too.

Bound by Magic is the first book in the Magic Awakened trilogy, a slow-burn reverse harem romance featuring an ass-kicking heroine, magical intrigue, and four hot book boyfriends you won't have to choose between.

Great Beginning

This was a story of a heroine who is learning to deal with magic she didn't know she had while having a bond with four different types of men. Its a great start to a series but would have loved a bit more romance. The narrator was amazing had to listen to the story all the way through without pause. Can't wait for the next book.

We truly need half Stars

This was a clean magical story, while our heroine does end up having 4 love interest because of a magical bond there where no sexy times in explicit detail so this one is safe just know language is present.

This was such an amazing creation of a universe we'll written into such detail I enjoyed getting to know the powers, as our heroine learned to control them, the main focus of this story is a political stand against the non magical oppressed. For this book I wouldn't necessarily label it romance since it was very light to my opinion but ut was an adventure non the less.

A Great Setup to the Series

Lana is Blighted, she has no magic, well that’s how the story starts. When she goes on a job to kill an Incubus things go wrong and she blasts magic out. So she’s not blighted after all she’s Gifted and it has bound her to an Incubus, a Mage, a Wolf shifter and an old friend of Lana’s and all are hot and are part of the resistance, Lana joins forces with them, well she has no choice really as they are bound now. This book is a great set up for the following books in the series, the character building was good, I felt like I got to know each character. I can’t wait to read or listen to the rest of the series. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Well written but predictable

This wasn't a bad read, it was just very predictable. The writing is great and I really enjoyed the world building.

Lana is supposed to be a mercenary/assassin but I don't see how she'd be capable of such a job. Her jobs go wrong due to her lack of planning. She can't be very good at her job with that incompetence.

I always roll my eyes when the MC decides everyone's in danger with her nearby so clearly she has to run away instead of actually deal with it. Because that'll solve everything right :/ I think it would be quite suspicious for someone to run away right after being (rightly) accused of being a spy, instead the guys just say it upset them and don't do it again. Ugh. There's more that bothers my about Lana and her guys but i'll leave it there.

If you're ok with those or can look past what are admittedly relatively minor points, then you might really enjoy this. The writing is fantastic and the narration by Heather Firth was good.

Excellent listen....

The world the author built is pretty cool and interesting. She did a great job explaining it without going into to much detail. I really liked her world building and the great cast of characters. The narrator did an amazing job bringing it all to life off the page. I could often feel the slow burn with her and her men! Of course, there's always one fighting it or it looks that way. Definitely will be looking for the next book!! i definitely recommend this one for sure.🎧AudiobookObsession

Bewitching

Good story of someone who comes into their magic late. She is spunky, no-nonsense and bad ass. The author has created a magical world that is believable. The Narrator brings each character to life and keeps the story engaging.

Interesting twist

To have bonds by magic versus mate bonds is different. Let's see where this story goes now she has family. #audibleobsession

Enjoyable Read

I have to say for a box without sex, this was still enjoyable. Talented writer. She’s building up the attraction very well. Overall I am very curious to see how book 2 goes!

Amazing Start to a Series

Oh where to start with this book. Lana is completely awesome. She is a blighted, or so she has believed her whole life. She can take care of herself and if she takes money from a Gifted here or there doing a job, no big deal. She absolutely detests all the Gifted do and stand for. Turns out, she is a Gifted.

Not only does she have magic but it bound her to four different men. And ohhhh, the men. Each unique and the narrator does an amazing job of giving them each their own voice. The wolf shifter (so hot!), the incubus (melting here!), the mage (those eyes), and the childhood friend (melting my heart). I'm not certain which guy is my favorite, all four of them have their strengths and weaknesses. I wasn't certain about Akio (incubus) but he steadily grew on me and now may be a favorite.

It was a 5/5 for me and I absolutely cannot wait to listen to the next in the series.



Thank you to the narrator for the copy of this book. I received a copy of this book and was not required to write a review, nor that any review I write be positive.

Fantastic

This book is a great start to what can be an amazing adventure. Really good strong characters. Likeable storyline with lots of action. And still slit of questions needing answers. Heather is a fantastic paranormal narrator.

Awesomely great slow burn with first class world building.

What great world building. This is the second book by this author I’ve read, and I’ve loved them both. Although it’s a reverse harem, there is no intimate encounters in this book. It’s more about her getting to know herself and developing feelings for the four. It’s a great slow burn. I’m pretty sure the next books in the series will be more sexy. So if your looking for something that’s very graphic, I’m pretty sure just wait. But don’t skip this one, it does a fine job of world building and setting things up. The narrator was new to me. I liked most of her renditions of characters voices except, Christine. It’s great that she changed her tone for the different voices it gave them personality. It does leave ya hanging, so be prepared to want book two. Overall, I think this is a great first in the series with solid narration.

Amazing book with a bit of Mystery!!

This book is a paranormal series. It’s definitely a excellent well written and thought out storyline. There is a great death in the past which set the seen in the story and why people are scarce around their own people. Lana Crow doesn’t trust people because of the way she grew up.
This story had me on the edge of my set. The story has a lot of twists and turns. It made me laugh out loud and I definitely think you will love it as much as I do.
The narrator is absolutely magnificent!! Heather Firth has a way of bringing the characters and their emotions to life. I love listening to her telling of the story!
I definitely recommend this book!

Excellent Beginning!

This paranormal series is off to a great start! The plot is interesting and the characters are all strong but each is unique. This is a slow burn in that there is a lot of apparent chemistry between Lana and the men but it is not acted on, yet. The big surprise for this reverse harem is that there is no sex in this first book, but don't let that dissuade you; because the writing is excellent and it is supposed to get way hotter in the next book. New to this author, but I already like her style! Excited for book 2!!!

I've listened to a number of titles narrated by Heather Firth and she has given an excellent performance in each book! I am super impressed with her versatility as a narrator in the romance subgenres. This is the first fantasy/paranormal project of hers and she did an amazing job bringing these different species of characters to life. Amazing! I will continue to listen to her work in the future.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

A great Awakening (Haha)

I really enjoyed listening to Bound by Magic!
The characters, world building and story was really greatly done, and I really enjoyed the strong, confident main character, who still was smart enough to see her own shortcomings and ask and/or accept help, when she needed it!

My only complaint about this book is not getting enough time with Akio, since I really enjoyed him! But hopefully there will be more sweet times with him in the future books!

The narration was super pleasant to listen to, and the narrator did a great job of bringing all the characters to life!

This is book 2 in the series . Have not listened to book 1 but I really enjoyed book 2 This is the first full novel of the series with a small prequel novella before There are lots of twists and turns that will have you listening till the very end wondering how things turn out
Heroine is Lana. Heros are Akio, Fenris and Jae and Corin.
Something devastating happened to all the magical beings , they were almost wiped out . Lana finds something out , that she’s not just normal but she is gifted . Lana and her four mates join something, fighting for equality for all the classes. . Grab it and see if Lana and her mates succeed .

Heather Firth was great telling this story . Her voice was strong, smooth and clear . She did all the characters good
