Series: Stand alone
Publisher: Harper Collins Publishers
Goodreads: 4 Stars
The adventure of a lifetime… or two, or three
When Sara is gifted a beautiful antique chair as a wedding present, she is completely unaware that it is one of a unique pair. On the other side of the world, the chair’s twin is presented to a reclusive artist, Jon, as a birthday gift.
The two new owners are thrust into a mind-expanding adventure through the ages – medieval East Anglia, Scotland, France and India. In each instance they experience significant junctions in their lives past, to remember and redress ripples of karma they set in motion, and thwart an evil entity that still threatens their present day lives.
Their journey exposes a cursed love affair spanning one thousand years and ten thousand miles. Only the full realisation of their own short comings will prevent the tragic reoccurring outcome of their immortal bind.
I was lucky enough to receive this review copy from Harper Collins Australia. I haven’t read a Traci Harding book in years and this was so intriguing, I felt like I had to devour it slowly.
I was captured from the first page, I loved diving back into a Harding read, and what more to love then past lives, soul mates and reincarnations? That was one of the reasons why I loved The Ancient Future so much, and I was so glad to be reading about this again. Harding delivered a gripping story of Sara and Jon, reincarnating over the ages but never to have a happy ending. With each lifetime they spent together, I was becoming more and more invested in their life together. It was interesting to read each lifetime as the places and times were so different from one another. It was mysterious and tragic the way each ‘dream’ ended and at first, I just wanted to get back to reading more about Sara and Jon’s current life. I loved the concept of these ancient chairs with the Eyes of Karma, taking them through past life regressions and the pull they had towards each other. As the story goes on, we seem to find out more and more clues to their past lives and a way to break the ancient curse keeping them apart.
I loved the characters in the book, and it was interesting to see how each came into play as they were revealed in the past lives too. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it felt like reading many short stories. It made me interested in the different times Sara and Jon each lived in and by halfway, I couldn’t put the book down. Even though parts of the book seemed cliche, I loved every moment, because who doesn’t love a cliche story? Maybe not most people, but it has become so uncommon these days, but still done in a gripping way. The Immortal Bind takes you on a journey through the ages and creates such a spell binding tale of love, star crossed lovers and hope for a future between soul mates.
