Sharon Gibbs delivers an amazing read, bringing magic and fantasy to the forefront. An enchanting debut novel with enough adventure and heart to fill an ocean. The story of a young boy named Christopher, who is "Bound" by prophecy. What I found the most appealing about Bound to Survive is the authors talent in creating colourful characters like Arnak and his sister Athena. It did take a couple pages to get into the story, but it wasn't a big deal. I really enjoyed this book. I read it in one sitting and was amazed to find that time had passed by so fast while I was in this other world :) If your looking for a fantastic story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, this is the book for you. Thank you Sharon for a wonderful story and I look forward to the sequel :D

Cannot recommend this book highly enough! Just imagine Harry Potter crossed with Lord of the Rings, with a touch of Game of Thrones thrown in and that pretty much captures the essence of this story.
The author describes each setting in stunning detail and you easily get swept along for an epic ride of wizards, magic, battles and love! Cannot wait for the sequel!!

I loved the book, and the characters had been introduced in a fashionably rich and resourceful fashon, it was a beautiful and informative way to describe all of the characters as they had been introduced. The book was long enough to get the storyline and let me picture the world within my mind. I could envision the world and the characters with out trying to force my self into suffering through a story to only to be disappointed in the end. No I wanted to read this book slowly so I could absorb the full content and let the book engulf me in to the world that did spark my imagination, this let me ride through the book like a newbie and left me with a sence of gratification that is rare in books and I was left wanting more, Christopher is the hero and he was not forced on the reader because the writer left a leeway and thus the need to have a hero introduced at the rite time, powerfull he was and he did not use his power in anyway unbecoming of a hero, I want to read the next book in the series. And I even donloaded the prequel and I never read a prequel to any book as it takes away from the story and makes me feel like the story was not good anough the first time around, but th author left me with wanting to know more about the past as well as the future.
