With the silver murders solved and her training as a mage underway, Sunaya figured her life would get easier. But between the Chief Mage's packed schedule and the grunt work demanded of her as an apprentice mage, magic lessons are few and far between. Worse, her apprenticeship leaves little time for her job as an Enforcer, and without bounties Sunaya’s money pouch is drying up -- fast.

Even so, when Shiftertown Inspector Boon Lakin asks for Sunaya’s help digging deeper into the murder of a fellow Enforcer, Sunaya has no trouble making room in her life to help him. The trail leads them to a series of crimes victimizing shifters for the entertainment of vicious humans. Sunaya and her friends race to identify the perpetrators and free the survivors, and the stakes are heightened when she discovers one of the victims has a connection to her. But if Sunaya is not careful, she may end up a very dead shifter herself...


Bound by Magic by Jasmine Walt

Bound by Magic is book two in The Baine Chronicles by Jasmine Walt. It’s filled with suspense, excitement, and wonderful characters.

We continue our story with Sunaya who is sucked into an investigation. Shifters have gone missing and the overall ARC continues to build as well. Sunaya has kept her magic hidden until now and so, she must embrace and develop it. She’s got to find a way to deal with her new situation; especially with her growing attraction to the Chief Mage Iannis ar’Sannin.

We get to see Sunaya grow as a character and in her knowledge of Magic. I really like our lead Sunaya. Even with all the new stuff coming at her she doesn’t lose herself. She finds a way to deal with it all, stay true to herself, and grow.

The world-building and secondary characters continue to add to the story and world. It’s developing well. The story does end on a cliffhanger, but the series is complete, so you can dive into the next book.

Bound by Magic is full of action, adventure, and mystery. I very much enjoyed this novel and the continuation of the story. I did bing this series and it felt great to be sucked into a good Urban Fantasy series.

Rated: 4 Stars

  4. Great review! Good thing the series is complete so you can jump into the next book. Cliffhangers drive me nuts! I do love a good fantasy story though and having a strong heroine is key. Secondary characters can also make or break a story so I’m super glad they helped bolster the plot.

    • I have a love hate relationship with cliffhangers. When a series is complete its not so bad; because I can dive into the next book and I did with this series. Bing worthy!

  5. You are really making good use of your KU subscription.
