Review: The Harvest Young: Bound by Fate by M.A. Church

Review ~ The Harvest Young: Bound by Fate by M.A. Church ~ 

Half human and half Tah’Narian, Szin doesn’t fit with either race. His appearance is mainly human, but he’s able to have a young. Unfortunately, that’s his only Tah’Narian characteristic. He’s smaller and weaker than other young.

Szin’s eighteenth birthday has passed and time’s running out. He has to stop his childhood friend, Takeo, from making the worst mistake of his life: claiming Szin as a mate. Takeo deserves an equal who’s as fierce as he is, something Szin most certainly is not.

Since before Takeo was born, he’s known Szin was his. Nothing and no one, not even Szin, is going to stand in the way of claiming his mate. He understands Szin feels he isn’t good enough, and he’ll do anything to convince Szin otherwise. Including taking drastic measures to ensure his mate listens.

Takeo is the ultimate blend of human, Tah’Narian, and Onfrevian DNA. He’s pure predator, and his sights are set on his mate.

Szin, a half human and half Tah'Narian eighteen-year-old, who doesn't feel like he belongs anywhere. He's more human in appearance than his twin brother and while his childhood friend, Takeo, wants to claim him as his mate, Szin feels Takeo deserves someone better.

Takeo, on the other hand, knows there's no one else for him, so when Szin runs away, he is forced to resort to drastic measures to make Szin realize this, too.

While this book is the third in the series, the author provides enough information regarding the previous books and the world it's set in, that I never felt lost. 

I loved Takeo, he was such a fantastic character, strong and relentless in his pursuit of his mate. I wanted to slap some sense into Szin at times, he was a bit whiny, but still likable. And the two of them together were combustible! Be it in anger or in passion, there certainly was more than enough fire between them. 

I adored Szin's brother, who was the voice of reason for Szin and Takeo so many times and if there is another book in this series, I hope to see more of him. I also loved both Takeo's and Szin's parents, they were hilarious! 

All in all, this was a great read! M.A. Church created a fantastic world and created a fabulous story that blends action with romance and an amazing set of characters. Definitely a book that I'd read again. 

Very recommendable!

5 Stars!!!

M.A. Church is a true Southern belle who spent many years in the elementary education sector. Now she spends her days lost in fantasy worlds, arguing with hardheaded aliens on far-off planets, herding her numerous shifters, or trying to tempt her country boys away from their fishing poles. It’s a full time job, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!

When not writing, she’s exploring the latest M/M novel to hit the market, watching her beloved Steelers, or sitting glued to HGTV. That’s if she’s not on the back porch tending to the demanding wildlife around the pond in the backyard. The ducks are very outspoken. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and they have two children.
