Overall Rating: 5 Rockin’ ★★★★★
The heir and his spare…this is the story of the spare, an almost immortal Viking. Bound by Fire is the second book in her series, the Cauld Ane by the multi-talented author Tracey Jane Jackson. In this amazing exploration into the world of the Cauld Ane, we find out about another of the brothers Gunnach and his discovery of his forever mate. The first book was extremely read worthy, but this book is unquestionably my favorite so far. Pepper and Connall are characters that exhibit so many layers, that the more you uncover about them the more you want to know.
