Bound is a short story in the Book of the Ancestor series. It falls between the second and third book. Bound gives us a snapshot into the world that many of us have come to love. I adore Lawrence as a short story writer. He brings a character to life in such a short time period, and allows a connection in a way that is usually absent from short stories.
This story is no exception. Ara is brought in to a mission that, as the daughter of an aristocrat, only she can do. However, Nora is hesitant to let her friend take the risk alone. Regol is brought in to help support Ara. This creates a unique type of love triangle that I actually enjoyed reading about. It brought about complexity to their relationships and was not the traditional cliche troupe.
Overall, I really enjoyed the read. It is worth the read, but most likely will not impact the main story line.
