Nicola was never a hero... until she had to be. She was an everyday single mother, Heathen witch, and herbalist. And she felt the scars of her prior quests deep in her soul and her psyche.
While on vacation with her best friend, Joseph, hiking along the Appalachian Trail, Nicola learns of a “miraculous” escape from prison. All signs point to a Runespell that releases all forms of entrapment, and the convict is spotted on the Trail. With a deadly creature waiting to be freed and Ragnarok once more on the line, the race is on. But Nicola is hindered by PTSD, and Joseph doesn’t seem to understand the sacrifices she might have to make, including their friendship… and their very lives.

There’s nothing like diving into the middle of a story arc feet first. I have to say I was quite intrigued with the plot and world building. The author did a good job in that I understood what was going and could enjoy the story. I’m interested enough to go get book one and two to catch up. I like Nicola for her strength and determination despite her past and many of the other minor characters gave me a chuckle. While the book has a darker side to it, there’s some sarcastic humor that lightens it up. My only complaint is how jumpy the story felt in some of the transitions. Overall, this was a fast paced read that I’d recommend to urban fantasy readers, or anyone who enjoys unique spins on Norse mythology. The Chains That Bind is the third book in the Runespells series. I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. Final Rating: 4.5 Stars
