Title: Bound by Firelight
Author: Dana Swift
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Publishing date: 18th January 2021
Rating: 5/5 stars

The heart-pounding sequel to Cast in Firelight, perfect for fans of epic, sweepingly romantic fantasy by Sabaa Tahir, Susan Dennard, and Mary E. Pearson.
After a magical eruption devastates the kingdom of Belwar, royal heir Adraa is falsely accused of masterminding the destruction and forced to stand trial in front of her people, who see her as a monster. Adraa’s punishment? Imprisonment in the Dome, an impenetrable, magic-infused fortress filled with Belwar’s nastiest criminals—many of whom Adraa put there herself. And they want her to pay. Jatin, the royal heir to Naupure, has been Adraa’s betrothed, nemesis, and fellow masked vigilante . . . but now he’s just a boy waiting to ask her the biggest question of their lives. First, though, he’s going to have to do the impossible: break Adraa out of the Dome. And he won’t be able to do it without help from the unlikeliest of sources—a girl from his past with a secret that could put them all at risk. Time is running out, and the horrors Adraa faces in the Dome are second only to the plot to destabilize and destroy their kingdoms. But Adraa and Jatin have saved the world once already. . . . Now, can they save themselves?

My thoughts:

Bound by Firelight is the second book in the Wickery duology and was such an incredible ending to this fantastic story. It starts immediately after the events of book one, in the aftermath of the fallout as both Aadra and Jatin try to regain control.

The world building in this book was as amazing as the first book. I absolutely loved this world and it’s magic system. It is so unique to the story, and so well written. The world was expanded by adding new characters central to the plot of the book.

I loved Aadra and Jatin’s cute fluffy romance in this book. They do spend some time apart but I still enjoyed their relationship. I am sad that this story is over, I wish I could keep on reading!

Hope you all enjoyed my review! I really enjoyed reading this one! Bye guys, happy reading! x

  1. Great review! I’m also pretty sad that the story is over and I’m hoping that the author chooses to revisit the world of Wickery again at some point in the future (even if it’s just a short story!) cos I’d love to get a follow-up to Adraa and Jatin’s story but also the other characters as well! 😃
