Beyond Eventide: Bound by Sarah M. Cradit



Dive into the secret, ancient, powerful world of two New Orleans families, the Deschanels and the Sullivans…

Beyond Eventide: Bound, a novella, is book 2.5 in the House of Crimson & Clover Series. Not a standalone story, its plot makes the most sense only after having read the companion novel, Book 2, The Illusions of Eventide.

Finnegan St. Andrews has lost everything. His perspective on the world is forever changed.

Anasofiya Deschanel no longer knows who she is…or what. She longs both for what she has, and all she has left behind.

Aidrik the Wise has vowed to do anything for his evigbond. As he watches her life force slowly ebb, he begins to understand the sacrifice he must make to save her.

All three individuals are bound by love, promises, and the undeniable threads of fate.

My Review: The House of Crimson and Clover is a fabulous series & Beyond Eventide: Bound did not disappoint.

Finn and Aidrik both love Ana unconditionally; and Ana, in turn, loves both Finn and Aidrik. Most importantly, Ana has learned to love and forgive herself. As much as I’m rooting for Ana’s happiness, my heart breaks for Finn, who is once again caught in the Deschanel family drama. My heart also breaks for Ana’s cousin, Anne, who yearns for Finn.

One of my favorite passages from the novel is a conversation between Aidrik and Anasofiya, when he asked her why she was wearing such a ratty sweatshirt.  Ana replied, “Sometimes it’s good to hold on to a piece of who you were. There’s a hope in remembering.  You might yet become the person you always tried to be,” (74).
