Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she's an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she's betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn't even know his name. 

Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become. 

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?


Stormy Smith has created a marvelous story. Bound by Duty is a tale full of magic, heart break, love, and mystery. When I started reading I was quickly drawn in and found it hard to put it down. I really like the characters, some more than others and found myself feeling right along with them. I could especially feel the pain of Amelia and Aidan. They have both been through so much and there is so much more to come. I did enjoy the little quips at times between the characters that would help lighten the mood and I just love Amelia’s best friend. She is one of those characters that just brings a smile to my face. Amelia does seem to get herself into some pretty bad predicaments throughout the story. Then I got left on a cliffhanger that left everything so far up in the air that anything could happen next. Where will this journey lead us? It promises to be quite an adventure of love and sacrifice.

Audio Book:

Overall the narration by Kristin James is good and easy to listen to. She helped bring Stormy Smith’s book to life. I love that she reads with emotion in her words. I do feel that she kept her voice too soft which made it harder to hear at times and she needs a little work on accents but other than that she did a great job. I did thoroughly enjoy listening to Bound by Duty.
