    The last novel in this trilogy ¿ and what an awesome series this

    The last novel in this trilogy – and what an awesome series this has
    been! Mo Fitzgerald is not like the normal teenage girl. She is a
    Flat with the magic alive in her. She is caught up in a love triangle,
    yet bound by magic to one of the men. She has to deal with her uncle,
    who is part of the Chicago MOB, her hunky bodyguard and his annoyance of
    Mo poking around in his personal life, and Luc, the ARC she is bound to,
    all atop of the family reunion of her father returning from prison. In
    this novel, Mo learns about his father, how far her uncle will go, and
    just how much she really does love someone. In the end, she must make
    the choice of which man she is going to stick around with, and learn
    that live is full of hard knocks and bruises! O’Rourke has done an
    exceptional job with this trilogy! I have enjoyed reading all three
    novels and actually read the last two back to back! They were easy
    reads and I was able to get caught up into Mo’s world and rooting for
    her to make the right decision! Five star read!

    Oaths that Bind The final installment in the Young Adult Torn s

    Oaths that Bind

    The final installment in the Young Adult Torn series trilogy by Erica O’Rourke “Bound” finds us returning to Morgan’s, the South Side Chicago bar belonging to the Mafia-connected Uncle Billy as Mo Fitzgerald (Maura Kathleen), awaits the arrival of her father who has just been released from a twelve year prison sentence. The welcome home party held in his honor dreamed up by her mother does not sit well with Mo, which she does not hesitate to mention however sarcastically to her Uncle. Although still bound by the oath she made to protect the magic which now resides in her, Mo has been had the luxury of three months of peace and quiet which also has left dormant the tie that binds her (both physically and mentally), to the elusive Luc DeFoudre. Also still living up to the bargain struck with her Uncle to keep Collin and his sister safe, Mo makes her required rounds ensuring the bar patrons have a drink to celebrate upon the guest of honor’s arrival. The shimmer of magic however, draws her heightened attentions and Mo fears Luc is once again making his presence known. Unfortunately, to Mo’s consternation the individual she glimpses is actually Anton Renard the renegade Arc who happens to be the leader of the opposing Seraphim. Puzzled, Mo knows nothing good could be forthcoming in Anton’s unwelcomed appearance and a fear the time of quite that she has spent with Collin is now at an end. It is a close race both Anton and Mo run each in their wish that the other was dead. Mo finds herself ironically envisioning a visit from Luc. His disconcerting powers notwithstanding that happen to twist her senses in another direction entirely would have served a better distraction than the dark purpose she feels is evident in Anton’s return. Mo discovers the time has come for the Arcs to elect the leader in the too long vacancy held by the Water house upon Evangeline’s death, which would once again complete and unite the Quartoren. As if the task at keeping the magic safe was not enough to keep Mo on her toes the added return of her father and the views he is determined to enforce after his long time absence in her life only adds fire to the flame of animosity. The added element of Billy’s inopportune discovery and the lengths he is willing to go in his greedy thirst for power may bring on the destruction outside anything the bonds of Mo and Luc or the guardians of magic could protect.

    Great conclusion to the series!

    I was so excited to read Bound so I could see what happens, and the path that Mo decided to take. And I was not disappointed! I really enjoyed this series, and the new idea of mixing the mob and magic. I really liked how this concluded and who Mo chose to be with in her love triangle. And the uncle even gets all he deserves in the end. Highly recommend to teens and all lovers of YA!

    Wow!

    I absolutely love this series! Once i read torn and tangled, i could not wait for bound! Erica o'rouke does an amazing job carrying out the plot and making everything extremely detailed. Bound is the book that mo's flat and arc lives collide, and cause her to make sacrafices and choices that affect many things. The book was very realistic, like you are a character in the book yourself, It just sucks you in and you don't want to put it down. A fantastic read! :)

    i love these books! once again she saves the magical world for t

    i love these books! once again she saves the magical world for the arcs and she being only a flat. she plays a double agent in a way. sends info to the other mob boss while secretly getting info to give to jenny to put her uncle behind bars. trying to figure out who her dad is after he is released from prison, but only to find out at the last moment. the only thing that gets me is how she's so willing to jump in bed with colin but when he breaks up with her, she loves luc so much and jumps into bed with him. granted i love both guys and didn't care who she ends up with but it just made her seem like a horny teenager. lol. overall i think this trilogy was well worth it.

    Excellent Conclusion to an Excellent Book!

    Bound (the last book in a trilogy) by Erica o"Rourke was a fascinating fun read. This book brings the two lives of Mo Fitzgerald together. The magical life she has been thrust into through the death of her best friend, and the anything but normal life of a High School senior with Chicago Mob relations. Torn between two guys Colin her solid safe bodyguard and her supposed destiny with the "secret guy" Luc, Mo works to find herself, her own voice, and many forms of love.

    This is the first book I have ever pre-ordered. After reading Torn and Tangled last February, I could not wait for Bound!! I am happy to say I was not disappointed. The plot was intricate, the characters were well developed, and the conclusion was extremely satisfying. A definite read for older teens and adults.
