Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{July 16, 2012}   GIVEAWAY!!! {Review} Spirit Binder by Meghan Ciana Doidge (The Cascadian Chronicles #1)

From Goodreads: Theo woke severely injured, covered in blood, and missing ten years of her life.

Just to complicate matters further, Theo was born under a prophecy; one that has rabid followers with three different interpretations, all of whom are willing to sacrifice her in order to fulfill it.

Not knowing if she can trust the stranger she’s betrothed to, the warrior visiting her dreams, or even her own mother, Theo tries to piece together her past only to find that her present is far more dangerous.

It’s the power of her own blood that scares her most of all. This is a responsibility Theo never wanted, and a destiny she cannot deny, “All because of a prophecy she was trying not to believe in, but kept fulfilling.”


Imagine waking up 10 years in the future, not knowing what happened to you, why it happened, or who you can trust in your new life.  Your mother is distant, you have few friends, and you find that you have some strange powers that scare many people, including yourself. All recollections of the past are gone, and you’re starting over.  Just imagine.

Theo isn’t only imagining this; she’s living it.  As scary as it is, Theo is a strong female lead character, attempting to find herself and understand the truth about her family—prophecy included.  As she begins to get her memories back, and learns from her friends and “lovers” what she’s capable of, Theo becomes a self-assertive young woman set on doing what’s right and protecting those she loves, regardless of the costs. 

This is a fairly fast-paced novel, moving very quickly and endearing the characters to the reader’s heart as it unfolds.  I truly enjoyed all the characters, even Theo’s mother (after a while), and found the entire premise of this novel to be quite unique and very interesting.  Though a cliffhanger is in tow, I didn’t feel like it left me hanging in such a way that I was dissatisfied, and I believe that lovers of science fiction and fantasy will really enjoy this novel.  Four stars. 

I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
