Secrets Bound By Sand Reviews

  • Rhonda Hasty

    Received this as my first arc copy and I loved it. T.A. White is one of my favorite authors I look forward to everything she puts out. If you have not read her work you are missing out and I highly recommend you get started because her worlds are some of the best to get lost in.

    With most series, I find myself bored after the third book, but White is an author that never disappoints. After four books I'm still excited for the next part of the story. The characters are rich with personality; the story full of excitement and mystery. The character development both individually and in relationships has been incredible.

    The story that is being weaved has everything you could want; adventure, mystery, romance, supernatural, and comedy. Ilith is an absolute delight and I love her more each book. The secondary characters were, as always, fantastic. Every book peels back another layer of Tate's mysterious past and I can't get enough. I could rave for hours about every book in this series, the newest installment included. If you haven't yet, you can't go wrong with reading any of this Authors books. Highly recommend them all.

    I raced through this book. I was sooooo good. My poor husband had trouble pulling me away to cook dinner.  

    I love these characters. I love their relationships with each other. There’s one point in the book that’s a huge long conversation between several characters and I got to the end of their conversation and thought “how refreshing they talked out their problems and solved them together as a team.” I love that most of these books are about problem solving and communication. There are adventure

    I raced through this book. I was sooooo good. My poor husband had trouble pulling me away to cook dinner.  

    I love these characters. I love their relationships with each other. There’s one point in the book that’s a huge long conversation between several characters and I got to the end of their conversation and thought “how refreshing they talked out their problems and solved them together as a team.” I love that most of these books are about problem solving and communication. There are adventure scenes and fighting, but the core cast looks for crafty solutions, not flashy ones.  

    I will say, this book isn’t as satisfying as the third book in “Dragon Ridden”. There are a few misdirects into angst, I did not love. I actually think T. A. White didn’t like the angst either because she sets it up and then doesn’t go anywhere with it (which was a relief).

    Beyond that, the Tate and Jax story was compelling in the first book and the second book, but by the third, I’d moved past it. To go back to this story in book four feels a bit like back tracking. And I care about the kids made dragon ridden against their will in book 3, I wanted more about them, How are they, what’s their development look like, what kind of roll does Tate continue to play in their lives?--Does Tate play a roll in their lives?

    It was nice Jacob was included, he was a connection to the book 3 plot, but I’d have rather explored his recovery as he interacted with the kids. Is he protective of those new dragons? Has he taken over their care? Does the existence of these dragon ridden kids strengthen or weaken the empire? 

    Maybe it’s just my perception, but Tate is at her best when she defends minority groups.  Out on her own, discovering her past when the over all stakes seem relatively low, isn‘t as compelling to me.  

    I still loved this book, and it comes highly recommended, I just like the third book better.

    It's pure, hardcore fantasy. Worldbuilding completely unique to the author. Some scifi. All excellence. Every entry in the series is strong. The mystery is a long-game and the reader finds out more of the mystery's components in each book. Nothing gets old or repetitive. The mc grows and strengthens and maintains relatability. No Mary Sue here. Tate is a real (and really flawed) person who struggles to build a good life and maintain her ideals. She's an amazin

This series reaches the rare excellence that all series strive for and very few attain. Its a gem. Enjoy!

    Best writer I have read in a long time.

    World building and plots are unique. Both male and female characters are sympathetic, rational and strong. A lot of humor amidst plenty of action. Confident and strong writing in several different genres.

    I loved all five books I have devoured in the last few days since I found this author. She made me realize how many mediocre books I have been reading lately. Even though I have enjoyed many of these books, they just are not in the same class a

    I bought all five - (Redemption and her 4 Dragon Ridden books) after reading them on Kindle Unlimited. I expect and hope that her other two series will be just as good.

    After that? I will probably slow down and reread them again to savor the stories and anxiously wait for new installments.

    Thanks T.A. White for enhancing my life through your great writing!

    This thing made my original review disappear. Suffice to say I'm still loving the series, loving Tate and Ryu with his fierce loyalty, loving Tate's family of choice and loving all of the secrets being revealed. I really wonder how much longer Tate's secrets will stay secret with crazy Christopher and Nathan running around. Not to mention that someone else is always around when some but of Tate's past is revealed. How will the empire's population react to who Tate really is?

    This book: the pacing was great. I felt like we FINALLY got answers to so many questions that have been bugging me the whole series. I really enjoyed the slow burn to the romance and how there was believable, but little angst associated with it. I’m still a little put off with Tate’s stubbornness/ how the situation dealing with her memory loss is written.

    This book: the pacing was great. I felt like we FINALLY got answers to so many questions that have been bugging me the whole series. I really enjoyed the slow burn to the romance and how there was believable, but little angst associated with it. I’m still a little put off with Tate’s stubbornness/ how the situation dealing with her memory loss is written. As a reader it got frustrating to the point I was seriously annoyed when for the 1000th time Tate choose to ignore/ not look at something from her past. I get the character motivations behind it, but as a reader it was becoming too much. This book was a lot stronger than the previous ones but I’m hoping that the scale of the series gets more epic in the closing books. There were a few editing errors (3-5), but nothing major. I’m excited to read the next book. It’s been awhile since I have stayed up and binge read a series. I’m also hoping Tate will quit hiding who she is. I am glad the author doesn’t make the other side characters clueless when people are throwing out hints about her identity everywhere.

    Series as a whole: I really like the side characters (Night and Daniel are really well written sympathetic characters). It was more sci fi than I thought it was going to be when I downloaded the first book. Ryu is admittedly a little bland as a character but He is growing on me. The author was a little too slow for my tastes on revealing Tate’s identity and memories. I feel that book two did not have enough resolution towards her identity and that and the final two’s plots are a little too similar as a small critique. Sometimes tech explanations are too vague/ hard to picture. I get that these artifacts are mysterious but I’m drawling a mental blank in the first few books when the author depicts them. This got better as the series progresses. I’m really excited about the next books to come out. They’re really worth a read through- and Tate as a character is really well written. She is the strong female character many try to write and fail miserably. I seriously love her.

    As much as I love the writing, I'm starting to get sick of certain.. trials? that occur in every. single. book. I understand, and it makes sense with the plot, but I'm still irritated by it. I'm also less enthused by the 'regaining memory' plot arc-but that's personal preference, not necessarily because of the way it's written or issues within the arc. I just don't care anymore.

    I think part of my preference is that I like the supporting cast almost more than I like Tate, and the amnesia arc requires so much time spent in her head, or in places where only she can go because of her past and who she is.

    Either way, I'll probably still read the next installation when it comes out, despite my building annoyance.

    Compelling but also highly frustrating at times.

    Couldn't put it down, and at the same time I was grinding my teeth.

    I think you get the gist :)
