Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Nolan can never close his eyes. Every time he does, whether it is for blinking or sleeping, he is pulled into Amara’s mind. Amara is a servant in another world. Her job is to protect the cursed princess and do whatever it takes to stay alive. Although Nolan has been aware of Amara for years, she has no idea that he spends time in her head. When Nolan’s new medication causes him to take control of Amara, she becomes aware of him and shuts him out. They believe they are free from each other, but then they discover this breakthrough may not be all roses.
Otherbound is a story that alternates between a fantasy world and our world. Even though the story alternates between Amara and Nolan and two different worlds, readers will have no trouble following along with the events. Duyvis’ debut novel is action packed and the story progresses quickly and smoothly. As a refreshing stand-alone novel in this world of YA series, readers will enjoy starting and finishing this book without waiting for the next installment. This is not a “drop everything and read” book, but it was enjoyable and a welcome escape.
