To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Dieses Buch war in einem noch schlechteren Zustand. Es ist schon durch viele Hände gegangen , hatte viele Aufkleber. Der Klappentext auf der Rückseite dadurch nicht mehr ganz lesbar. Ein Stück vom Deckblatt Vorne und Hinten abgerissen.
Bound by Sin is book three in the Immortal Brothers Series, I absolutely LOVED book 1, I had character issues with book 2 and book 3? Well,
Jacquelyn Frank is an exceptional author, but let's face it she has been known to get lost in the stories sometimes. And Bound by Sin was a series of what ifs and maybes. I read a review earlier comparing this to The Little Mermaid, in the worst possible way, and sadly, I saw the reviewer's point.
Jaykun is the third brother to have his story told, obviously since this is book three, sheesh, Anyway, Four brothers who believed they deserved to be Immortal, were found and punished by the gods. Jaykum was bound to a star for eternity or until the gods deemed otherwise. When his brothers were offered a chance to redeem themselves if they conquered and converted people to the "good" gods, they needed yet another brother. So Jaykum gets his chance. Of course there's a catch. He still has to accept his punishment. So every night he is forced to burn... but during the day he battles his enemies.
Jileana wanted to learn more about the world, well the world above the water so she made a deal that basically gave her three weeks to check it out. During those three weeks she is supposed to observe NOT participate but she watches Jaykun burn and is intrigued. Naked and alone she approaches him and they form a friendship, then a relationship. But Jileana has her duties as well and return home she must.
I just didn't connect with them as individuals, let alone as a couple. At times I was just plain bored and others, well I really enjoyed it. It's hard not to wonder at the creativity of an author when she creates an entire world underwater, with it's hierarchies and battles. There were things going on under the sea that I wanted to learn more about. I cared more about them than Jaykun and Jileana.
We didn't interact a lot with the brothers but Garret, whom I adored in Cursed by Fire has just gotten worse. He spent most of his time whining about wanting to go home to his wife and family. Pointing out that he's the only brother who is no longer immortal so he should be able to spend more time with his family... gah.. someone shoot him, seriously..
So, In my most honest opinion, this one was a bust.
