Soulbound

A Lone Star Witch Novel, #1

Soulbound is a very interesting book with the premise of a prophesied witch from a magical family that doesn’t receive her powers as expected. Xandra Morgan comes from a royal witch family and is destined to become one of the greatest witches of all time but her powers never appear. She ultimately finds herself running a coffee shop and is content on being the non-magical member of her family. I liked Xandra because she was different and was perfectly happy being the odd person out. She was funny and fiercely independent and went out of her way to prove to her family that she had no magical capabilities even though her mother tried every home remedy and witch whisperer to release her magic. The murder mystery that Xandra finds herself involved in was very dark and at times, difficult to read. I felt bad that Xandra had to feel what the victims had felt before their deaths, which she handled very well considering. The only part of this book that I didn’t like was Declan and that the pacing was very slow in certain parts of this book. I thought Declan was arrogant and superficial while I thought Nate, the police detective, would have made a better romantic lead for Xandra. I am curious to read the next book in the series to see where Xandra’s journey takes her next.


Book Blurb for Soulbound

As the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter—and a member of Ipswitch’s Royal family—Xandra Morgan should be a witch of incredible power. But things don’t always turn out like you expect…

While she hasn’t lived up to her family’s expectations, Xandra has come to terms with her latent magic and made a life for herself in Austin, Texas, running a coffee shop where she makes potions of a non-magical nature. While things aren’t perfect, Xandra is happy—until she runs into powerful warlock Declan Chumomisto.

Xandra hasn’t seen Declan in years, and though she’s still overwhelmed by his power, she doesn’t trust him. And when her own powers awaken one night and lead her to the body of a woman in the woods bearing the symbol of Isis—the same one that has marked Xandra since the day she met Declan—she’s filled with a terrible suspicion, soon confirmed: the woman is connected to him.

Xandra doesn’t want to believe that Declan is capable of murder, but as the body count mounts, and Xandra’s own powers spiral out of control, she’s not sure she can trust her own instincts…
