The Bound

Book 2, Ascension

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Cyrene Strohm is a Queen’s Affiliate, a high-ranking official of the court of Byern, with power and privilege to spare. But she’s also a keeper of dangerous secrets: like the fact that she holds the heart of the King, and that she possesses magic in a world where magic no longer exists.

Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia. An island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering.

But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin, as Cyrene comes to learn that everything she’s been told her whole life – about her court, her homeland, and even herself—are bound in a beautiful lie.

Find out in the second book in this epic fantasy tale that Susan Dennard called "perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas."

Love this series

This is the first series I've read by K.A. Linde. This story is incredibly captivating. I loved this book because it really went in depth with the character's stories and chapters focusing on so many crazy twists and turns. I couldn't put it down. It felt like an eternity waiting for the 2nd book, now I'm just dying for a pre-order of the next installment! Def recommend ❤️

Exquistely done. This Novel will steal your heart.

I don’t have the right words to form about this book. We had some questions answered while some were not, with new forming questions beginning. Every single chapter had something for me, rather it was a new revelation or an old one that was being answered. I won’t make a long winded review just for the mere fact that this book does not need one.
The plot, the character’s, the world building, and the magic will have you suspended in time. This book is a work of art. It’s one of those books that will stay with you throughout your life. Fantasy lovers will devour this. Everyone will be on pins and needles to get their hands on the next in the series after reading this.
Now to decide the fates. Will it be Cyrene master of all? Will she find love in Edric, Kael or Dean? We won’t know until next time, and that makes it all the more exciting.
Hands down one of my all time favorite reads. Ever.
Five stars.

Amazing book! Must read for fantasy lovers!

Normally I'm not a huge fantasy reader but I've always enjoyed this authors other books. So when I first read The Affiliate I was immediately hooked, I wasn't really surprised. I was completely thrilled to hear she was writing a second book and have been waiting with baited breath for this one.

The characters have this lively banter that had me giggling and swooning at the same time. My favorite thing about this book is the vivid details in the description of everything. You can tell that Linde put a great amount of thought and imagination when creating this world and these characters.
