Alex Caine is a martial artist fighting in illegal cage matches. His powerful secret weapon is an unnatural vision that allows him to see his opponents' moves before they know their intentions themselves. An enigmatic Englishman, Patrick Welby, approaches Alex after a fight and reveals, 'I know your secret.' Welby shows Alex how to unleash a breathtaking realm of magic and power, drawing him into a mind-bending adventure beyond his control. And control is something Alex values above all else. A cursed grimoire binds Alex to Uthentia, a chaotic Fey godling, who leads him towards chaos and murder, an urge Alex finds harder and harder to resist. Befriended by Silhouette, a monstrous Kin beauty, Alex sets out to recover the only things that will free him - the shards of the Darak. But that powerful stone also has the potential to unleash a catastrophe which could mean the end of the world as we know it.

      Comments about Bound:

      A fantastic, well-written, character driven fantasy. Bound is a story of finding oneself against all odds. A cage fighter is approached by a well-dressed Englishman after a bout in Sydney. This meeting and everything that follows is a fast ride with one man's struggle against evil.

      Set in today's world, this fantasy bring with it everything an epic fantasy should - growth, courage, love, doubt and a businessmen who is more of a monster that the half-Fey/half-humans that roam unknown through this everyday world.

      Alan Baxter has come into his own with this book and I'm looking forward to reading book 2, Obsidian, released on 1 August.
