Book Review: Bound by JM Chalker

Fantasy Landscape. Mysterious Old ForestEverything happens for a reason… or does it?
High school is hard enough without having to start all over, but that’s exactly what seventeen year old twins Olivia and Haydon are forced to do.
Not only are their relatives basically strangers–but the small town of Jasper Crane is anything but normal or welcoming. Soon they discover things may not be what they seem.
Supernatural powers start making themselves known in both twins, forcing them to reconcile with the idea that coincidences are rare, and they may be in Jasper Crane for a reason, one that could have dire consequences.


Bound is the first book in the Jasper Crane series written by JM Chalker. The second book, Hidden, arrives later this year. I was given a copy of this book for a review.

I was not disappointed that I took the chance to read this book. I found it to be a very good and fun read with many twists and turns.

The chunk of the book takes place after the 17th birthdays of both Haydon and Olivia. This is also the beginning of their journey. The first to notice anything is Olivia. It is also the night before they are whisked away to Jasper Crane. Why they are sent there? The twins do not know.

Not long before weird things begin to happen. To not only the twins but people they know as well. Is the curse the center of all the weirdness going on around them. Who knows? But Haydon thinks it is up to him and Josh to find out.

But even Stephanie, who thought the twins would cramp her style, begins to realize that she needs her cousins to help figure things out. She reconciles with them, but is it in time.

Aaron, on his way to see Olivia in Jasper Crane, is attacked. But what happens to him…

Bound is a thrill a minute ride. I could not put the book down.

If you are into YA Paranormal books, then this is the book for you. I am really anxious to pick up Hidden later this year. I want to find out what happens to Haydon, Olivia, Aaron, Stephanie, Josh, and Will. I, also, want to know why Olivia’s father was dressed in a knight’s armor…

I highly recommend you read this book.

I give BOUND by JM Chalker…
