Summary: This book is the prequel of the Realm of the Claimed series that is coming out next year. The story is divided into two parts. What happened to Ash before Soul Bound and what happened to Kali before Soul Bound. These two characters sacrificed so much to save what the loved and then ended up receiving something bad in return than something good. With Ash it was the life of sister, and in Kali’s story it was her life and her home. It is really interesting, it is definitely not like any other book I have read. I would suggest reading the prequel first and then you will understand the story better when you start reading the series when it comes out in April.
My Review: *spoiler-free* I am glad that the prequel came out before the actual series so now I will feel more connected and I will know the characters better when I start reading the series. It is really heartbreaking but I am sure that is going to turn around once the two character meet in the first book of the series. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I can not wait until the series comes out. *spoiler-filled* What really got to me in this book was the way that Ash felt about his sister. Not every single sibling in the world is well connected to their other sibling and what Ash did to say his sister had me on the verge of tears. It was so sweet and so kind, but he had to pay a big price for it. Would you have done the same thing? I also felt bad for Kali, I mean I would be sad if I found out my best friend was planning on destroying the heavens and taking control of all humans. What she had to go through and her struggles didn’t really add up to something good. It made her get something bad for all that she had sacrificed to save the humans and her home. It really pumped me up and I was actually swiping my kindle to see if there was any more pages when there wasn’t. As you can tell, I am pretty excited for the series to come out and I really hope I enjoyed as much as I did this one.
