Review of Magic Bound by Theresa Kay

Starting a new school is never easy and this time not fitting in could cost lives.

Despite being raised by shifters, my life was fairly ordinary . . . until I tried to break up a fight and got zapped with magic.

Then, all hell broke loose.

Power I didn’t know I had came surging out of me, revealing me as a witch and drawing unfavorable attention to my adoptive parents.

Now, as the witches attempt to use my concealment as an excuse to push an anti-shifter agenda, the only way to keep my parents—and myself—safe is to enroll in the elite Ravencrest Academy and prove I can control my newfound abilities.

Unfortunately, raw power doesn’t translate into competency and everything is way more difficult than I imagined.

Even with all the things working against me (like my complete ignorance of magic and witch society), I manage to make a few new friends and there's a spark of something more with the last person I expect.

But I can’t let that distract me from the ugly truth that many who walk the halls of Ravencrest are eager to see me fail. To keep the peace between shifters and witches I must succeed . . . no matter the cost.

My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up based on the blurb and cover, and settled in to a magical read, I was not disappointed! The book follows Selene as she navigates a new world of magic, and how to use and control it. I adored the way the book started, pulling me in from the first word and taking me along for the right. Kay is an amazing story teller and someone who I will be watching in the future. It was a book with highs, lows, and impossible stakes. Overall, a solid five star read and one I very much enjoyed!
