    1. This was a fun book; sometimes difficult to follow, but totally worth it in the end. The beginning of the book started off much different than the way it ended. Even the main character seemed different and I’m not sure why. It’s almost as if the first 8-10% of the story, excluding the prologue, was an unrelated tale that eventually tied into the rest of the story. Also, I know I’m probably the only fantasy reader on the planet who doesn’t like when books don’t have clearly identifiable [...]

    2. Full review in mysiteThe author was very imaginative and creative into writing such a wonderful book! The world he created was entirely different than reality so it thrilled me to hop over and have a visit. Greyson Forrester was the type of wizard you would enjoy having adventures with. The narration of the story was impressive; it was as if I was having the same adventures as well. I saw everything in my head - all the suspense, the creatures, the mystery that this book held. It's amazing how a [...]

    3. I can not write a proper review for the fact that I would post spoilers! I will say this though, Bound & Hagged is an amazing read! It put a grip on me from the first chapter. I could not put it down! Its a suitable read for a wide range of ages. If you like fantasy and Greek Mythology then you WILL love this book! I am certain we will be seeing more of James McDonald in the future!

    4. Young Nora has to go see a mysterious woman named Miss T to learn about her legacy, but the book she has been given makes no sense. It's about the legend Greyson Forrester, whose wizard powers were bound when he was young, except for his self-defense and Sight abilities. It's almost time for him to be "evaluated" and he needs to be at his best, but a case with cursed money and missing faries takes him into other realms with his old team and the s. Will Grey stay alive long enough to regain his p [...]

    5. A good read by a new authorWhile I enjoyed this book very much, I had to drop it by one star for errors in spelling and sentence structure (some of which made no sense at all). Also a trifle annoying was most of the characters refusal to use contractions, which distances the reader from them because we relate better to people who speak the way we do, and this made them more two dimensional. There is great promise here, however and I will definitely read the next installments in the series. All i [...]

    6. Bound and Hagged was a fast and fun detective story that weaved its way through a world full of myths and legends. As we wander through the modern-day world with Greyson Forrester, we realize that many of these ancient creatures still walk among us, hidden in the most unsuspecting places of society. MacDonald’s style never lets the action slow while working us toward a larger plot centered around Grey and the mystery of his past. If you like detective fiction and supernatural twists then this [...]

    7. This book is awesome. There are two cover designs one with the devil in the hoard of gold and Greyson with his kilt, and the other that features Greyson silhouetted like James Bond holding a gun. This is quite fitting, because the story is mostly James Bond set in Discworld, except with more direct amusing references to our world. Even that isn't quite right, truth be told, because this is something else entirely, that really needs to be experienced first hand.

    8. Something about the author's style kept me from emotionally connecting with his characters. I liked the dialogue, and the action was non-stop. It took me at least a third of the book to become fully invested in the story.I gave it 3.5 stars because I enjoyed the way he wove magical and mythological creatures together seamlessly. The premise of the series is also unique.

    9. Confusingwell, I liked the main story. However all the misspellings and extra stuff took away from it. Overall even going back and rereading parts I was confused. In the beginning and the end were a girl named Nora and an old lady named Mrs Tee. I still have no clue who they are.

    10. Wonderful readI could not put this book down. I was surprised given the genre,however, it gave it new life. I'm looking forward to the next book.
