Bound Arelia LaRue kindle ´ eBook Arelia LaRue Ä danpashley Á ☆ [PDF / Epub] ★ Bound (Arelia LaRue, #1) By Kira Saito ✩ – Sixteen year old Arelia LaRue lives in New Orleans where the music is loud voodoo ueens inhabit every street corner and the ghosts are alive and welIna convinces her to take a well paying summer job at the infamous Darkwood plantation owned by the wealthy LaPlante family Arelia agreesHowever at Darkwood nothing is what is seems Arelia enters a world full of tricky spirits strange characters and forbidden loveIn the intoxicat The first thing that cemented my interest in this novel was the way it was written I’m not sure what I was expecting but the end result is that I absolutely loved this story and I can’t wait to read the second and third books which the author had also gifted me Apart from the flowing and meticulous writing the story itself was intriguing and full of interesting facts about hoodoo and voodoo By the end of the story I understood that there is a difference between hoodoo and voodoo and I now know why voodoo is shrouded in so much mystery In this story we also get to know the different types of spirits and what they do It was interesting to note that a voodoo ueen should not view these spirits as gods or they’ll never allow her to treat them as euals Right from the start when Arelia and Sabrina arrive at Darkwood Plantation the story takes on an eerie and sinister feel The spirits communicating with Arelia at unexpected intervals added to the suspense Everything in this book is unpredictable I expected the atmosphere at Darkwood Plantation to send chills down my spine round every corner as the story progressed but although there is a consistent sense of foreboding the author keeps the reader riveted by painting this palatial home as an ordinary one; albeit one opulently decorated in rich colors expensive furniture and chandeliers and exuisite gardens that will take your breath away The reader never really knows whether to be afraid or not The beauty and ordinariness of the house is balanced by a family cemetery slave uarters and an allegedly haunted swamp where you can still hear the slaves of a hundred years ago sing situated on the same grounds as the plantation houseA cast of characters varying in personalities also added a lot to the overall feel of the story There is Lucus who hides a terrifying secret; Sabrina the spoiled and annoying rich friend of Ariela; Ben the cute kid who crawls into your heart and who is ignored by his parents; the obnoxious Mr Dumpty who refers to himself as “a fat guy from New York” and who is every young girl’s worst nightmare; Ivan the handsome waiter with a bad attitude; and so many characters who will leave a lasting impression – good or bad – on the readerOne of my favorite parts – proving again that nothing can be predicted in this story – was when Lucus offered Ariela something to eat in the middle of the night and she challenged him to make fried Oreos I was intrigued at this as I’ve never heard of fried Oreos before and Lucus’s reaction after he tasted it made for some side splitting laughter I recommend this book to all who is fascinated by Louisiana voodoo its myths and a story built on the historic slave trade Although Bound does not build up to a climatic finale it is filled with enough mystery to keep the reader absorbed till the last page has been devoured At less than hundred pages it is a wonderful uick read

Bound Arelia LaRue #1 Sixteen year old Arelia LaRue lives in New Orleans where the music is loud voodoo ueens inhabit every street corner and the ghosts are alive and well Despite her surroundings all she wants is to help her Grand mere Bea pay the rent and save up for collegeWhen her best friend Sabr This cover is gorgeous and the intriguing synopsis about voodoo had me excited to read it Sadly this wasn't for me Even though the plot was mysterious the characters were infuriatingLet's start with Arelia who has been hearing spirits her whole life She's taken a summer job at a plantation which appears to be filled with spirits and strange happenings Arelia comes off as very immature for the most part of the book She would overreact to the smallest things as well as believe everything her jealous best friend told her which we will get to in a bit But then when it comes to voodoo despite having heard spirits her whole life she refuses to believe any of it I could not for the life of me understand this girl She lets herself get backstabbed by her best friend lied to then simply forgives her This best friend Sabrina I despised her She is the definition of spoiled and a complete bitch I didn't get why they were even friends As for Lucus the love interest he was an ok character but never really gave off any sort of charm All in all the whole cast was a big disappointment to me I didn't connect with any of them nor did I understand their reactions to any of the events that happened in the book They all seemed very stiff; unconvincingThe plot started off really interesting with a good amount of mystery I haven't read many books based on voodoo so it was different I liked learning about the lore but unfortunately there wasn't a lot of digging into it until the very end I wish we had delved deeper into Arelia's abilities As soon as the plot starts getting complex the book ends; it felt unfinished The book is not awful it does have promise With some editing it could even be pretty good But as is I couldn't get myself to enjoy it very much For of my reviews visit my blog at Xpresso Reads
