"disappointing - trivial miscommunications overdone"
Well, I just read the Binding and I have to say I was
really disappointed. I didn't think the book was very well
written. The characters were not only flat, they were
inconsistent. You never knew what they were going to do
from what minute to the next because you had no idea who
they were at that moment.
The book also irritated me alot. This is the plot:
Chapter 16. --I despise her! Chapter 16.2 -- I love her!
Chapter 17 --I'll marry her! Chapter 18 --She's a traitor
and liar! Chapter 19 --I love her! Chapter 19.2 --Oops I
despise her! Chapter 20 --love despise like distrust hate
The book was also full of those trivial miscommunications
that could be cleared up if one person ever finished a
sentence. I hate that. Like someone can't spit out "Your
brother kidnapped me you jerk!" before the other person
leaves the room. No, they have to "Say wait a minute you
have to let me tell my story this is what happened that you
won't let me tell you about because you never give me a
chance to finish. Hey, where'd you go?" Everyone in the
book does this OVER and OVER again until the end when they
decide to use TRUTH SPELLS that could have cleared up the
whole mess in the beginning! How annoying. This was Book
1; I'm not going to buy Book 2.

Is widowed fantasy writer, Korrene Greenwood, going insane?
She thinks she is when the man of her dreams, the sexy hero
of her current novel, appears in her kitchen one morning
and starts talking to her. The fact that he is also a five-
foot, eleven-inch, green-eyed, blond-haired, magic wielding
elven package of sensual masculinity contributes to her
conviction that a visit to a therapist is in order.
Bent on saving her sanity, she attempts to destroy the
manuscript and all traces of her book. But her hero,
Rendolin, is shocked at her genocidal tendencies. To
prevent her killing his people, he carries her off to his
world - the world Kory believes she created.
Kory must learn to accept the fate that brought her into
Rendolin's magical embrace before she can understand that
love itself is the greatest adventure of all.
