Bound by Julie Embleton


Turning Moon #1

Would you sacrifice love to stay alive?


Nyah’s wolf has been bound by dark magic. Defenceless and terrified she finds sanctuary on the run, but choosing to live demands an impossible price.

The new alpha of Nyah Morgan’s pack has aligned with dark forces, and his plans for Nyah break the most absolute of lycan laws. With her entire pack under his thrall, and her own wolf maimed by his magic, she turns rogue, her incapacity landing her in unfamiliar territory where she catches the unwanted attention of Dean Carson, an alpha determined to learn the truth she hides.


As her crazed alpha closes in, Nyah is forced into making a choice. Her bound wolf is killing her, both alphas can save her, but which one, and at what cost?


Bound launches the suspenseful Turning Moon series, a contemporary world where wolves, vampires, and witches defy prejudices, join forces, and fall in love. The heroines are feisty, the heroes gutsy, and the villains heinous.

Bound contains:


Enemies to Lovers

Fated mates

Demon magick and summoning (instructions not included)

Persons held against their will

A happy ending (for the most part)

Reviews for Bound

Sometimes I held my breath. Through it all, I loved this book. I devoured this book.


Nyah is a strong and intelligent female character. She manages to escape the plans that Northfell had for her with careful planning, guts, ingenuity and luck. She is a badassery woman minus the magic.


The characters are brought to life brilliantly, and the story itself left me wanting more. If you want something bingeworthy, this series is it.


Wow, what a brilliant read. I couldn’t put the book down, literally from start to end I was captivated by Nyah’s story.

Get this on your To Be Read list! If you like fast-paced werewolf fiction with feisty women, well-muscled but respectful heroes and evil unredeemable villains, then this is the book (and series) for you.

“Julie Embleton is a master world builder. She built this lycan world amidst a human one…hiding in plain sight. Then she threw in this demonic one summoned by Northfell, hell bent on a collision course and almost destroyed everything. The world building is phenomenal in Bound and is most certainly this author’s strength.

Nyah is a strong and intelligent female character. She manages to escape the plans that Northfell had for her with careful planning, guts, ingenuity and luck. She is a badassery woman minus the magic. So, just move over, Aelin! And Dean! I just love this “mate” thing. I know, a bit “fairytalish” but it so gives me such a warm fuzzy.


I have read all three books in the Turning Moon Series back to back and they are three different stories; but are related much like a tree. Bound is the trunk with Released and Haunted as branches. That being said, the characters are intertwined which helps keep the stories grounded. I think, perhaps, there may be one more story to tell. I sure hope so! By the way, all three books are ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ That, fellow readers, is a plus and hard to beat!”

“I was expecting a simple shifter story with a bit of hot romance thrown in. Lo and behold, the concept surprised me, as it was not simple at all. Dark sorcery in order to compell and control werewolves’ packs? I’m in. The main character Nyah was relatable, her struggles too, and the romance bit was rather heart-warming. All in all, if you’re a fan of paranormal and werewolves, this is one book you’ll want to read!”

“Nyah mourns the loss of her Alpha father, but a worse ordeal is to come in the terrifying person  of Simon Northfell. This was a fabulous pageturner with a great premise, a feisty heroine and a lovely sense of community in the wolfpacks. The central romance had me rooting for both, whilst the villain and his mind control was truly creepy. And who wouldn’t love Alpha Dean. Highly recommended.”
