A book that transported me to exciting places, Bound Souls by N.D. Jones is a delightful fantasy that will have any reader doubt anything they know about love, science, and faith. Is there a limit to how much one soul can love another? Such is the question explored in this book that features a compelling blend of romance and fantasy. Meet Regent Lela of Asiya, the most powerful person on her planet, and a person who can’t save her beloved husband and soulmate, Zion. They have lived together, bound by a strong bond of love for thirty years, but now Zion must leave. Lela refuses to let him go. In some strange way, the bond of their love continues to live on beyond the grave. Read on to see what happens when a third person comes into the equation.
Bound Souls is a gloriously narrated story, a tale with a riveting setting and extraordinary characters. I loved it from the beginning, following Lela and Zion in a boisterous argument. The way N.D. Jones explores the emotional intelligence and the psychological depths of the characters is wonderful. The plot is well-paced and the reader can’t help but go on reading to find out what happens to the characters. The conflict is well-developed and it is mostly psychological. A story that is character-driven, filled with numerous dramatic scenes, Bound Souls will transport readers into realities that will make them dream and long for a love that is both redeeming and lasting. I enjoyed every bit of this story.
