I really enjoyed this shifter paranormal romance. Nyah is the daughter of the Alpha. Her father passes away just before the book starts and we see her wolf pack go into a period of transition. One thing I really loved about BOUND was the way the author developed the world building and pack structure so thoroughly. An Alpha is chosen to replace Nyah’s father… but when he is killed in an accident, because of an arcane law, Simon Northfell, a wolf who has been away from the pack for many years, and who no one likes, who had challenged for the position of Alpha, automatically becomes Alpha. The scenes between Nyah and Simon were creepy and well written. As Simon uses black magic to take over the pack and force them to do his bidding, Nyah escapes, eventually finding Dean’s pack. I liked how the relationship was developed between Nyah and Dean, how it took time for trust to form. I’m really excited to see where the rest of the series will go!

I really didn’t think I was going to like this book. Being less fond of the whole werewolf trope than I am even of the vampire one, I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. Focusing evenly on the personalities and conflicts of the actual human side of the characters, rather than only their wolf personas, meant this was a balanced and interesting read.

Well written, the plot was nicely paced and jogged along at an enjoyable rate with shocks and surprises interspersed with touching moments of intimacy between the main character and her friends, and it was these unexpected plot twists that kept me reading. I really felt for the main character, associating with her rising sense of panic and fear as her life falls apart and she’s left with no choice but to desperately plan her escape.

There was some romance, but not as much as I assumed there was going to be, and what there was fitted into the plot and was appropriate and, more importantly, wasn’t the main focus of the plot, no, this book’s main strength is the heroine’s sense of hopelessness and helplessness. It would have totally overwhelmed a weaker person, but she is made of stronger stuff than that and fights back, with us, the reader, cheering her on all the way.

All in all, an exciting and heartfelt read that both thrills and entertains and has made me already buy the next two books in the series.

BOUND by Julie Embleton is the first book in the Turning Moon series. I read the kindle, and then when the audiobook version narrated by Elyse Osterhaug was released, I had great joy listening too.

While grieving the loss of her father, Alpha Morgan, the feisty heroine Nyah is drawn into a cat 'n' mouse game of survival from an unwanted intrusion; a wolf who has aligned himself with evil forces and threatens the existence of their wolfpack.

Firstly, I have to say that this was far removed from my normal genre; I don't usually read werewolf fiction. But let me tell you... A brilliant, well-written story with great characters stands firm no matter what genre. I think I went into this thinking it would be fuelled by romance, and whilst there is romance, BOUND is far more a well-rounded thriller and gripping adventure. I loved it.

I read and then listened to this as if watching it on the big screen. The scenes were vivid, with great dialogue from believable characters, and the landscape is richly described to draw you into Nyah's story. Highly recommended.

I was expecting a simple shifter story with a bit of hot romance thrown in. Lo and behold, the concept surprised me, as it was not simple at all. Dark sorcery in order to compell and control werewolves' packs? I'm in. The main character Nya was relatable, her struggles too, and the romance bit was rather heart-warming. All in all, if you're a fan of paranormal and werewolves, this is one book you'll want to read!

Turned me into a werewolf fan!

I can’t say enough good things about this book! I picked it up and could not put it down. I ended up blowing through this in two days. I am not a fast reader so when I devour a book like this it means it was absolutely amazing! What Twilight and True Blood did for vampires, Bound does for werewolf’s. HBO, Netflix - you need to get on this! I will be honest, I was never into werewolf’s - until now!

Nyah mourns the loss of her Alpha father, but a worse ordeal is to come in the terrifying person  of Simon Northfell. This was a fabulous pageturner with a great premise, a feisty heroine and a lovely sense of community in the wolfpacks. The central romance had me rooting for both, whilst the villain and his mind control was truly creepy. And who wouldn't love Alpha Dean. Highly recommended.

I Devoured This Exceptional Book

I sat down late on a Thursday evening to start reading “Bound” (Turning Moon Book 1) by Julie Embleton. I thought, I’ll read a couple of chapters, then really dive in on the weekend. When my Kindle indicated I was 75% of the way through the ebook, I stopped reading – and ONLY because it was quarter after midnight.

Friday evening, I finished the rest of this wholly original and spellbinding book.

“Bound” left me breathless!

Embleton’s writing is superb. I’ve read book after book using the same wording over and over to set a scene. And of course, simplicity is fine and many of those books were very good. But when an author as talented as Embleton purposefully puts the setting into our brains using phrasing like: “Bare limbs clacked overhead, the sound too close to rattling bones for Nyah’s comfort…” – we are no longer reading a good book. We are experiencing art.

Author Julie Embleton is an artist.

Throughout this novel you will find examples of her creative prose. Read this favorite snippet of mine: Black droplets of molasses-like liquid oozed between the fingers of the clenched fist. They snaked over the pale, porcelain skin, worming their way to the edge where they gathered in a dropping glob before snapping free and falling…

I can see it - almost in slow motion, like time itself has stopped.

You will also enjoy Embleton’s subtle humor, expressed by her protagonist, Nyah Morgan, in snippets like: “I’ll never forget you,” she whispered to the comfy couch, patting its arm as she stuck her feet into her boots. “But last night was just a one-time thing.”

It’s the little details that round out the author’s main character in these quieter scenes. But early on in “Bound” we learn all is not peaceful in Nyah’s world. No, following the loss of a family member and a dear friend (and protector), Nyah is at the mercy of a truly vile Alpha leader of the wolf pack to which she belongs. This despicable counterpoint to Nyah’s own highly-principled self is one of the most frightening characters I’ve met (on the page) in a long time.

Embleton’s imprisonment of Nyah’s consciousness in her own body was terrifyingly brilliant. Reading this passage actually made me feel claustrophobic. Embleton effortlessly conveyed her main character’s helplessness. The desperation felt through Nyah’s experience is heightened at the additional magical punishment dealt to her by the evil Alpha’s decree. She is also cut off from the love and safety of her friends. She witnesses the devastation tearing through her pack.

And then, fate? Good fortune? Another pack’s Alpha might deliver help – and this brings the reader hope. Embleton gives us something to hang onto during Nyah’s grim journey. We put our hands to our chests, we’re able to catch our breath. And then we get to peek at this epic story through another POV (just a little): the honorable Alpha of the other pack.

I share the above (the dark and the light) because I want to celebrate Embleton’s pacing of this storyline. She does not rush, and she does not allow things to drag along either. She has masterfully plotted this storyline so that the reader never stops and questions how it all is playing out on the page. You will never need to “reread something” to understand what is happening, nor will you ever want to skip ahead to get to the “good stuff.” Because it’s all great stuff.

I love how Embleton chose to create a strong main character who is not invincible. In a fantasy tale such as this, readers are already suspending disbelief. I tire of some protagonists who never stop kicking butt, who never fail or lose. Yes, this is a dark fantasy, and it’s a believable one.

At times I read “Bound” with warm smile – there is a poignant flashback scene to Nyah’s friend Alan adding his name to her family tree when they were seven so she wouldn’t be alone. Other times I read pages through wet eyes, my heart breaking at the loss experienced by more than one character. Sometimes I held my breath. Through it all, I loved this book. I devoured this book.

The ending is completely satisfying. Sure, things will never be the way they were, but this novel had a beginning, a great story throughout, and a proper ending. And another book in the series is ready to pick up the tale: “Released” (Turning Moon Book 2). I’ve already started it.

A huge applause for this exceptional work of art from author Julie Embleton! Ms. Embleton, you have written an extraordinary book – I can’t wait to find out what happens next in this series.

The first part of a justifiably popular series and a fantastic introduction to the world of werewolves. I’d always been a bit wary of werewolf fiction but I loved the culture of these particular werewolves. They are charming, honourable, ruled by the law, strong but not mis-using their strength, sensitive to the world in which they live, and apart from but not despising the lives of non-shifting humans. The characters themselves were very compelling. The author has the rare talent of creating characters about whom the reader immediately cares. This applied not only to the main characters in this particular story, but to more minor characters. For example, the werewolf Michael plays a small but important role in this book but by the end I was worried about what was going to happen to him and delighted to find that he’s the main character in the next book of the series. The story itself starts off slowly as we get to know about the world of the wolves and what threatens their ordered existence, but once the scene is set the story takes off at a cracking pace, and I read the whole book in two nights, frantically turning pages to find out if the main character, Nyah, would manage to escape from her arch-enemy and the fate he plans for her. She reluctantly accepts the help of the leader of another pack who is very much a love interest. I adored the interaction between these two extremely stubborn and determined characters, and the villain in the plot is suitably evil and controlling.
If you like fast-paced werewolf fiction with feisty women, well-muscled but respectful heroes and evil unredeemable villains, then this is the book (and series) for you.

‘Bound’ is the first book in the ‘Turning Moon’ series. I am very pleased that there are at least 3 more already out, and hopefully others to come.

The premise is good: Nyah’s inner werewolf is bound by the dark magic of the Alpha male who takes control of her and the people she cares about in her pack. She has to escape, but in so doing she endangers the lives of another pack and its own alpha male who is obligated and determined to protect her. The resulting conflict within herself and with those who want to help builds and builds into a climax that kept me anchored in my seat, right until the last page.

I liked the idea of packs of werewolves living ‘normal’ human lives but always strongly connected to their inner werewolf. A harmonious relationship, yet always aware the wolf could spring out of control at any time. That tension gave the story an edge to a compelling plot which rolls along at great pace as Nyah struggles to survive while trying to avoid putting others in danger. Add to that hints of the existence of other dark creatures and you have yourself a book which makes it impossible to stop at book 1.

So I won’t.

Wow, where has this book been the whole time? I have never heard of it! I wish I would have because this book was absolutely phenomenal.

The book starts out rather sad with Nyah's father who was the pack leader who had passed and now Nyah is the new pack leader. This is a rather common transfer of power as one would expect from any paranormal book. However, someone wielding magic enthralls the entire pack and no one can escape their clutches.

I really didn't like Simon one bit (which I'm guessing that was the whole point being evil and such). When Nyah got away she was in an enemy pack's territory when she runs into Dean Carson. Dean automatically wants to know who Nyah really is and she doesn't want to tell him because if she does it will put his pack in danger.

Their romance is absolutely sweet and breathtaking and I really enjoyed their interactions and connection.

I can't wait to continue this series, which I believe is a trilogy. I also am a sucker for the whole "mates" trope and you give me that and I am all in for any paranormal book!

An excellent fantasy wolf shifter adventure with black magic and demons thrown in for good measure.

Embleton has created a range of wonderful characters whom drive the plot forward as they desperately search for a way to survive and save their pack.

I loved Nyah. Feisty, determined, lovable and prepared to sacrifice her life for those she loves, and up against a dark horror no one can defeat. Embleton keeps the tension high as we follow Nyah fleeing for her life and trying not to draw trouble down on other innocents. I love that Embleton didn't take the easy option at the beginning and draws us into the new alphas nefarious plans.

Stumbling though the world with her wolf instincts bound by dark magic, Nyah accidentally ventures into another packs territory. Dean, the packs alpha is another wonderful character we all happily fall in love with. The banter between the two, and Nyah's reactions are brilliantly portrayed and very well written.

You are drawn into the troubles of all the pack members, and even the minor characters are well fleshed out, and sympathetic so you are rooting for them as well.

A fast paced, easy to read, thrilling adventure which will keep you hooked thoughout. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Having only read one other book about werewolves, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I wanted to try something different, and I wasn’t disappointed.

The author weaves a very believable Lycan world in amongst of own, setting a good pace with action and surprises mingling with the growing feelings of love and terror of the main protagonists.

I found the characters easily relatable. I wondered if I would, but I loved Naya’s story and that of the other strong werewolves.

This is definitely a 5 Star read. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Bound by Julie Embleton was SO good that I've already started the second in the series. It's about Nyah, a werewolf woman who's grieving the loss of her father, her pack's alpha, when all hell breaks loose. The pack is (eventually) taken over by Simon, who clearly has nefarious plans. However, only Nyah seems willing to stand up to him! Eventually Nyah runs away, straight into the arms of her mate, who she must also run away from if she doesn't want his life to be put in harms way along with hers.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I did find it a little slow to get started but from chapter 8 onwards I literally couldn't put it down. I enjoy werewolf stories anyway but they can be a little samey. This one, however, was unique with an interesting story line. Book two is already proving to be as enjoyable!

Bound goes from 0 to 100+ mph in the first few chapters and by chapter six all hell breaks loose, leaving the Blackwater Ridge Pack in utter turmoil. Nyah is trying to adjust to all of the changes following the death of her Alpha father; but nothing could prepare her for what happens. A dark and sinister cloud of dark magic has taken over the pack.

Julie Embleton is a master world builder. She built this lycan world amidst a human one...hiding in plain sight. Then she threw in this demonic one summoned by Northfell, hell bent on a collision course and almost destroyed everything. The world building is phenomenal in Bound and is most certainly this author’s strength.

Nyah is a strong and intelligent female character. She manages to escape the plans that Northfell had for her with careful planning, guts, ingenuity and luck. She is a badassery woman minus the magic. So, just move over, Aelin! And Dean! I just love this “mate” thing. I know, a bit “fairytalish” but it so gives me such a warm fuzzy.

I have read all three books in the Turning Moon Series back to back and they are three different stories; but are related much like a tree. Bound is the trunk with Release and Haunted as branches. That being said, the characters are intertwined which helps keep the stories grounded. I think, perhaps, there may be one more story to tell. I sure hope so! By the way, all three books are ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ That, fellow readers, is a plus and hard to beat!

I’m a sucker for a “will they or won’t they” romance, and Bound is that and so much more! This story is well written with just the right amount of suspense and intrigue, all with a realistic backdrop of modern day werewolf society. A great read!

Bound is a paranormal romance novel that pulls the readers into the world of werewolves. Nyah is the daughter of an alpha male whose bloodline is sought after by other alpha males. However, Nyan has other plans. I especially liked Nyan’s determination to save her pack and find her soul mate. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

I've found my new favourite shifter series! I thoroughly enjoyed Bound by Julie Embleton, once I started it I couldn't put it down. It is filled with characters you wil love, and love to hate. The villain was just. So. EVIL!

Nyah, the main heroine, is a pistol. The daughter of the recently deceased Alpha, she is kind and caring for her pack, but she also isn't one to just lay down for evil to take over. Which is exactly what happens when the unwelcome lone wolf Simon shows up, acting like he owns the place, looking to become the next Alpha. He has wicked plans for Nyah, but she manages to thwart him with her strength of will and escapes by thinking fast on her feat--and I adored her for it. Seriously. Her ingenuity impressed me.
Enter Dean, the dreamy Alpha of the territory next door, who is determined to help Nyah, whether she likes it or not.🔥🔥😂

I liked the world building here, the pack structure and politics, the way the werewolves interacted with each other. It read as very believable, which maybe is a silly thing to say about a fantasy series, LOL, but it really made sense. Ms. Embleton has clearly done her research as to how real wolves interact, and spun it into a world I didn't want to leave. :) 
This book was funny, well written, and the ending was perfect! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐!

If you are a fan of fantasies, you are bound to like this one!

Having discovered this author on Instagram, I had been meaning to read one of her books for some time. While werewolf stories are not something I am naturally drawn to, I decided to give this one a try, and was pleased that I did. Bound is a wonderful tale of good versus evil, power struggle, dark magic, love and sacrifice. Simon Northfell is a beautifully painted villain, who you’ll despise right from the start. In contrast, Nyah, the main character, has you rooting for her from the start.
The author has cleverly woven the plot in a way that makes you think you know what will happen next, but you are never quite sure. It also has a well-constructed climax that doesn’t leave you dangling and frustrated, while also setting the scene for the next book. This is an enjoyable page-turner, and if you are a fan of fantasies, you are bound to like this one!

“Bound,” the first book in the Turning Moon series, is the first paranormal shifter novel I have read. I blew through this full-on page-turning werewolf adventure in one sitting! “Bound” is well-written, gripping, and visual with great characters and world-building—it rolled out in my mind like a good Netflix film. The many plot twists kept me flipping pages, as did the unexpected love story that kept me hooked until the end. The main character, Nyah, was strong, stubborn, and feisty like me—I loved her. “Bound” is an entertaining tale of the battle between the forces of evil, the power of love, and what you’re willing to sacrifice to protect the ones you love. Kudos to a fantastic fantasy and five-star read.

BOUND, by Julie Embleton, is book one in her Turning Moon Series. She has built her world so well, a lycan world (which means werewolves), that even though I have little experience in reading about lycans, I was fully into the story in no time. This book both explains lycan society well while throwing you into the heart of conflict and action almost immediately. The lycan world is embedded and hidden within our present day human world. In fact, her werewolf characters are very human, but with the powers, pros and cons of being lycan, human-like shape shifters who become sentient wolves. And just as with humans, lycans are good, bad and everything in-between. BOUND offers us a delightfully wicked villain, a strong female protagonist in Nyah, exciting conflict between good and evil, and a great love story between Dean and Nyah. Dean is a strong male character who is of another wolf clan than Nyah’s. This is my first venture into lycan literary territory and I will be reading book two, RELEASE.

Thank you to Julie Embleton for giving me a copy of her book Bound for an honest review.

"Dean held on to where Nick's grasp offered grounding. His wolf snarled, fear urging it to phase so it could return to searching for its mate. If he learned one more gut-twisting truth, he wouldn't have the strength to hold it back. "I can't lose her."

Bound is the first book in the Turning Moon series. This Adult Fantasy starts off grabbing us as our lead, Nyah, stands at a grave stone mourning her father. I found this book had a little of everything; from wolves and shaman to good friend feels and an addicting chemistry between our lovers. Embleton has a writing style that draws you in and is easy and fun to follow. The descriptions of the surroundings and characters are clear and relatable which again allowed me to drift into the story and become part of their world. Our lead male, Dean, is a perfect balance of dominant, confident yet sweet and sexy.
Although, this is an adult fantasy, YA fans don't turn away too quickly. There is no gory or hot and sexy intimate scene, allowing this novel to straddle multiple genres.
I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone looking for a new shifter series, and I'm excited to read the second book.

I’ve read my share of werewolf books and I have to say this is one of the better ones I’ve read. It was well-written and kept my attention from the very beginning. It was a mature story, with real loss and real heartaches rather than the unnecessary, excessive violence or brutality so many books resort to for shock value alone. I admired Nyah for her selflessness in wanting to protect another pact from suffering her own’s fate. I grieved for her friends, Alan and Michael. An enjoyable read and one I would recommend to lovers of paranormal!

This book had my attention from the first page.

Every chapter had a new twist and I was especially surprised by the romantic elements. The plot of the book is fast paced and keeps you guessing. Julie built the werewolf world and structure of the community and network in a way that felt like they could really be living among humans.

The only thing that I wanted more of was Nyah's future choices. The future she had set and the future the book leaves us with is so different and I would have loved to see her get her entire HEA.

Overall, I will pick up the next book in the series, I am eager to see Michael's story unfold, but I hope to see more of Nyah in future books as well.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the werewolf troupe and a whole lot of action.

Bound has me hooked on the Turning Moon series!

Beautiful descriptions and thorough world-building drew me in to the paranormal realm of Julie Embleton's Turning Moon series. The plight of the Blackwater Ridge werewolf pack is the premise for Book 1 which also establishes Lycan customs and intra/inter-pack relations. The early chapters were intriguing, but for me, it was the romance element that made Bound so hard to put down.

The characters were well-developed. I liked that Nyah was clever and resilient despite the disadvantages of losing her wolf. She was as determined to spare her mate as he was to save her. Embleton did a fantastic job of expressing just how debilitating the missing connection was for her heroine.
The combination of "do-gooder" fairness and frustration for Dean was even more attractive than his brawn and that particularly distracting lock of hair. And I loved loyal and good-natured Nick as his Beta.

My only criticism was that the explanation "bound by law" seemed a flimsy argument for the ease of Simon Northfell's ascension to Alpha, given how universally despised he was by the proud Blackwater Ridge pack. Still, he met a satisfying end and as far as villains go, will be a hard act to follow.

Also, I would have loved a little more "steam" between hero and heroine.

I look forward to the rest of the Turning Moon series!

If Jacob had a spin off story from the vamps...this could be it

Fans of shifter romance and team Jacob will love this book. When the new alpha of the pack is after making Nyah his own against her will and binds her powers, she find a way to run. Only to end up in the clutches of another leader of the pack as unwilling to let her go, for sweeter reasons. The drama, the vivid descriptions, the compulsion and the feeling of what it’s like to be on the run and fighting against herself and everyone else - that was tangible enough to sink your teeth into and gripping. I also loved how the romance between Dean and Nyah developed, real sweet. An enjoyable, fast paced read you can get lost in, totally recommend if you can stomach a few gruesome scenes.
