Finding Your Wings (and Bound by C.K. Bryant)

Sometimes it requires branching out, taking a different path than others have chosen.

Sometimes it means starting over or jumping into unfamiliar territory.

Sometimes it means saying goodbye to certain expectations or goals in order to make room for new ones.

Sometimes finding your wings requires the support of a number of incredible people who will stand by you and refuse to allow you to fall on your face.

But always, finding your wings requires an enormous amount of risk, which also requires bravery you haven’t always believed you possessed. But you do. You have it in spades. We all have this potential strength. It may take some digging, some serious soul searching, but when we find it—that is when we’re able to figure out how to fly.

Speaking of flying, today’s Dark C.A.R.M.A. spotlight is Bound, by C.K. Bryant.

This one, I have read, and it is really a great story. Favorite moments involve a waterfall and a shirtless hottie named Octavian, a dying girl and a best friend willing to risk everything to save her, and some great kissing scenes that leave Kira—the main character—and the reader breathless.

The one thing I was sad about was the ending, because I have to wait for book 2. *frowns*

Check it out!

The blurb:

When a photo shoot ends in tragedy, Kira discovers her best friend, Lydia, has been keeping a secret. Knowing the truth, and accepting it, will change Kira’s life forever and thrust her into a world of ancient curses, magical objects, and savage enemies. What happens next will challenge everything Kira knows about her world, herself and the shape-shifting warrior she’s falling in love with. No longer the timid mouse her mother accused her of being, but a woman who finds the mental and physical strength to endure and survive.

BOUND is a heroic tale of true friendship, infinite sacrifice and untamed love.

Thanks, Nichole. I'm honored that you took the time to review my book and post a wonderful piece on finding your wings with it. I feel that our friends are the ones who help build the wind that keeps us afloat while flying and you have indeed been one of those friends. I'm sorry I haven't always returned that friendship as a true friend should. I guess we all have things we need forgiven for. Thanks again for such a wonderful piece. HUGS
