Overview

Young Adult Mature - Sexual Content

Alyssa Worthington is the daughter and sole heir to the most prestigious coven in the witch world. Her childhood has been spent in the mundane human world learning to blend in and hide who she truly is, and it is here, during her last year that she meets a striking ex-high school quarterback from a small town in Montana who will turn her world upside down.

Alyssa holds the element of fire, unlike her best friends Lisa and Megan, who are both air elementals. It is the elemental powers that reside inside which require positive thoughts and positive actions in order to maintain this magickal connection. What would happen to a witch that let this get out of control? How can evil become the driving force behind revenge and death?

Dark secrets, dark magick and a desperate desire for revenge will bring Alyssa to the brink of destruction. She is being chased, but this pursuit is a silent one and her chaser has but one goal, Alyssa’s complete and total destruction. Will she overcome this dark threat and begin to live out her destiny? Will she survive and if so, will she lose herself as part of the price for being alive? Or, will her destiny rest on being crescent bound?

    Magickal Tale With Plenty of Excitement!

    *This review copy was given to me free of charge by the author, and this review is taken from my blog*

    Good Points
    I loved the characters! They were full of life, and the writer made them vivid and believable, which I love. I also (as a Wiccan ) loved the idea that they were witches. A lot of the festivals mentioned were completely correct, and the rituals, although made slightly different for the book, obviously, were very true to life. The author has obviously done her research, and it shows. The plot-line was exciting and pulled you along at just the right pace, and kept you hooked from the very first line.

    Bad Points
    Okay, this is a strange point, but…this is classed as a YA novel, and yet there were sex scenes within the book. Although they weren’t especially steamy, I don’t know how comfortable I’d be allowing a teenager to read a book with these kinds of scenes in, and it lowered my opinion of the book slightly. There was also the odd typing error, but not so many that I would not read it.

    Overall
    I thought this was a great book; imaginative and original. I was hooked from the first chapter, and couldn’t put it down at all. The characters were amazing, and the story and dialogue was written at just the right pace. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves magic and excitement, and wants a lovely romance to go along with it all. But I have to mark this book because there were sex scenes, and I don’t feel that it is appropriate for young teenagers to be reading.
    I give this book……4/5 stars!

    I was orginally given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I was orginally given this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I loved it so much I bought the book (i know free lol) so the review would carry more weight as an amazon verified review.




    Everyone has read books with witches and its hard to find something different.  Well Karli manages to put a unique interesting spin on a classic story.  I love witches with element affinty and how different it makes each of them. Alyssa is the daughter of the coven leader and a very respected Coven. The witches magic is based on good and positive feelings, so when someone is out to her alyssa, she has to fight the negative feelings and the havoc it causes.  Throw in a romance with a high school student... a Jealous ex and fast cars. A match made in heaven.

    Good story needs serious editing

    While the story line is good the errors in grammar and word usage makes me cringe. There are paragraphs that make no sense and the further you read into the book the worse it gets. If the author will re edit it will rate a great review.

    Crescent Bound By Karli Rush   Karli takes us into the life

    Crescent Bound
    By Karli Rush




      Karli takes us into the life of Alyssa, a young teen witch that is finding herself.  Alyssa participates in the human world but lives in her world where Magic is real and she is accepted by family and Coven.   Each witch has a mate and when they find each other they become crescent bound. Their crescents show the world that they belong to someone.  When she meets Marc she thinks he is a regular human and fears her attachment for him. She can only be bound with a Witch.  
       Alyssa loves to work on her car and does it with her dad.  She shares with him a love for racing.  Who would guess that in the Witch world they have their own racetracks and how did Marc get there if he is a human.  The track is warded to keep the humans out. Alyssa’s dad recognizes that Marc is from a long line of witches and invites him into the coven. Marc has only lived in the human world and does not understand all there is in his new way of life.   He does know that he values his life with Alyssa but is still challenged by feelings for an old girlfriend.  When Alyssa and he become Crescent bound he has no idea how much hurt will come from on little kiss with another.  Will Marc and Alyssa learn to trust each other again? Will she be able to forgive him? 
      Alyssa’s old boy friend tries to come back into her life and leaves a girl that is anything but understanding.  She soon blames Alyssa for all the wrongs in her life and Alyssa is in for a fight with dark magic and is taken into a world created by a witch that has chosen evil.  How will Alyssa find her way out of the dark realm and will she and Marc be able to save their relationship?  These are all things you will find out when you read what it is to be Crescent Bound.
