A deathbed promise

Arlyn’s quest is simple: Find her father and let him know her mother is dead. After all, Arlyn had promised her mother she’d go. The problem? Her father's people are myths and legends, and he doesn't even live on Earth. But despite a long journey through the mysterious mists of the Veil, finding him turns out to be the easy part.

A dream long-buried

After five hundred years, Kai has given up on finding his soulbonded. So when he stumbles across Arlyn after returning from his latest mission and recognizes her as his mate, Kai starts their bond in haste. But he never could have imagined that his bonded is his best friend’s newfound daughter. Whoops.

A hidden conspiracy sparked to life

Though the sight of Kai makes Arlyn’s heart pound, she isn’t sure she can forgive him for starting their bond without her permission. But her love life is the least of her problems. Her father is an elf lord, and his sudden acknowledgment of a half-human heir reignites the same conspiracy that took him away from her mother in the first place. Now Arlyn and her family must face iron wielding assassins, bigotry, and her newly awakened magical abilities if they hope to come through in one piece.

Arlyn thought she would return to Earth after meeting her father. Now she must fight to save the family she never knew she wanted.

Soulbound by Bethany Adams was a pretty decent read. I enjoyed what was going on in the story. I want to read the rest of the series to know what is going to happen between Kai and Arlyn.

The book is about this girl names Arlyn. She comes from earth to the elven lands to find her father Lyr. Her father didn't even knew she existed till up until the point she founds him. His soulbounded didn't tell him that she was going to be having a child. Growing up Arlyn heard all different kinds of stories about her father from her mother. Well she meets her father and returns to pick up her stuff in the woods and runs into Kai. Kai finally finds his Soulbounded. So without thinking he started the process. So not only does he not know the whole situation but he pretty much just caused a big problem without knowing. Though they all end up getting along and she is excepted into the home. She really starts to fall for Kai. Then everything slowly falls apart. The whole someone trying to assassinate Kai and then Kai's father is actually are really messed up dude in the head. But everything in the end turns out really well!

Arlyn is great. She is not a damsel in distress and she consistently reminds everyone of that. She doesn't like being bossed or pushed around. She is a little shy at first but she does warm up to them it may take time. Well with being in a new area and a new set or rules and formalities. I can understand why she is so withdrawn. Kai, is your hot not so average elf. Muscles, black hair, and eyes to just die for. He is very protective over Arlyn but that is to be expected since she is his soulbound. But he lets her do her thing. Sometimes he says things and she doesn't approve, but they both seem to love each other and it is adorable.

Everything that was going for this book was great. The concept was great. The only thing that I did not like was there were to much going on to really keep up with. So many different characters to keep up with. Don't get me wrong it was still a great read and you all should pick it up and give it a go! I can't wait to read the next books <3.
