Product description

Product Description

The most important rule for an Apprentice Consul is simple: Don't get involved with daemons. Well, Piper is planning to break that rule—big time.

After a near-deadly scandal with the Sahar Stone, she has the chance to return to the only life she's ever wanted. All she has to do to keep her Apprenticeship is forget about Ash and Lyre. Ash might be enigmatic and notoriously lethal, and Lyre might be as sinfully irresistible as he is irritating, but they’re not bad for a couple of daemons.

There's just one problem: Ash is missing.

Really, she shouldn't risk her future for him. He lied. He betrayed her. But he also saved her life, damn it. Wherever he is, he's in trouble, and if she doesn't save his sorry butt, who will? But with every dangerous secret she unravels, each one darker than the last, she slips deeper into Ash's world—a world with no escape for either of them.

The Complete Steel & Stone Series:
Book 1: CHASE THE DARK
Book 2: BIND THE SOUL
Book 3: YIELD THE NIGHT
Book 3.5: FEED THE FLAMES
Book 4: REAP THE SHADOWS
Book 5: UNLEASH THE STORM

Bind the Soul by Annette Marie

Wow! I loved this book! I couldn't put it down! Bind the Soul lured me into an emotional roller-coaster ride until the end, leaving me thirsting for Book 3. I was fully immersed in Piper’s world. I laughed, I cried, I quivered in fear, I screamed in anger and stamped my foot in frustration.

Ms Marie is an outstanding writer – she brings the characters to life - they are so complex and real. I loved them all – Piper is so determined and loyal, yet vulnerable. And Ash, he is such a strong, brave yet tortured soul. I especially love Lyre and Miysis, who add depth and humour to the story. Samael is the epitome of a villain –he certainly scared me! And I hope to see more of Raum and Seiya in the next instalment.

I adored this book just as much as the first (Chase the Dark) though this book is more dark and intense.

Some of my favourite quotes:

“Whatever he wants to know, he will learn. That is the reality. There will be no rescue. There is no escape. You belong to Samael now.”
She swallowed, her mouth dry as dust. “I don’t want to die.”
His expression didn’t soften. “Death is easy. Living is difficult.” He rose to his feet. ‘Come.”
“I – I’m not ready.”
‘Now.”

His presence filled the room. His attention commanded obedience. She could barely breathe while he analysed her.

Terror tightened around her chest like steel bands. As his gaze settled on her, it cut through her, slicing like the sharpest blade, tearing away her skin to leave her soul naked to his merciless regard.

If you enjoy a beautifully written, paranormal story packed with action, romance, suspense and a few plot twists, then this book is for you!

Thank you so much Ms Marie for another amazing read. I cannot wait for next book!

Amazing series I loved it the whole way through. I'm excited for the new book to get the next stage in the life of piper. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone but before reading make sure your fridge is stocked with ice cream for the heart aching ending that leaves you demanding more.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the first, you'll LOVE this. 18 January 2015
By Carmen R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The ONLY thing that isn't even better than the first book is that Ash isn't on literally every page. I'll keep this as spoiler free as possible (and plot free, summaries abound and are not my strong suit).

This book is... I don't even know how to explain it. It sucked me in so completely - I read both this and the previous book in one day - I couldn't get it out of my head. You know books that you have to come up for air from? This is one of those.

Piper, Ash, Lyre, and Zwi are back and as amazing as ever. This book has more action, New characters, and more despicable antagonists than the first (also more Ash /Piper, which I consider to be a very good thing).

One of the strongest points in this book remains (like the first) the authors ability to have tension, drama, action, plot twists, etc without making you give up on, hate, pity, or lose faith in the characters. I have LOTS of deal breakers with books but the biggest one is when you can't root for the characters you love on every page. This is a book (series) where you can, no regrets.

Plus? The author doesn't have a need to unnecessarily kill beloved characters as a plot point (ahem, hedwig, literally every character in game of thrones, etc) and the plot doesn't suffer for it. At no point is the book slow or do you think, "you know what this book needs? More gut wrenching sadness to pull me in" because that's not how she writes- you're sucked in without it.

I don't write book reviews and I don't gush but I legitimately loved this book. And I'm a decade too old for YA. I will definitely keep reading Annette Marie's books, and I already preordered the third book (these are the first books I've read with kindle unlimited that I've bought because I know I'll keep rereading them).

I LOVED this book, I just can't get enough of these characters! Annette Marie does a fabulous job to keep you on your toes in here Steel and Stone series! I love her heroine and the fact that she is a strong female character who doesn't back down from any challenge, forget that she is outmatched in every circumstance she is bold and unwavering in her decisions and shows just how much you can do with some big boots and bigger attitude. I love that she shows her strengths and also her soft side that she just doesn't know what to do with. Very realistic emotions for a teenager and a female character that girls can look up too! I have fallen for Ash and the more then meets the eye persona you find in each story. I love that he is the epitome of strength and caring for those he loves, who can help but love this misunderstood monster! And Lyre, how can you forget him! The comedic relief and flirty friend, you just can't help but love everything that comes out of his mouth! Absolutely loved it can't wait dive into the next book!!
5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite new author! 11 February 2015
By K. Howard - Published on Amazon.com

The 2nd book is just as great as the first! Maybe better?! I read Book 1 in one sitting and should have gone to bed, but made the mistake of starting Book 2 and read 75% before I finally went to sleep. I woke up and finished it, This book has all of the elements that made me fall in love with Book 1: humor, drama, action, fantasy and a beautiful and believable growing romance woven throughout that adds purpose to the plot without overwhelming it. I find it remarkable how the author can write such innocent but flush-worthy sexual tension! And yet Piper suffers from the same doubts and troubles any young adult can relate to: stressful parental relationships, self doubt and the need to prove oneself. As we take this adventurous and sometimes heartbreaking journey with her, the reader can't help but relate . There is evil and darkness in this author's fantasy world, which serves to make it all the more believable. I love to hate the villains as much as I love the heroes. If you like Karen Marie Moning, I think you will like this YA counterpart. I can't wait for the third book. I hope the author will be as prolific as she says she will be in her bio!
5.0 out of 5 stars Urban fantasy lovers read this book and this series. 28 September 2016
By Mb4pax - Published on Amazon.com

The second book in the urban fantasy series "Steel & Stone" continues with the blistering pace, scary adventures, good vs evil, a touch of romance and who really are the good guys. Determined Piper Griffiths, without magic or information about the Underworld, searches for clues to Ash's whereabouts. More than she bargained for happens. Please read the first book to understand fully the second book's events (though they can be stand-alone). Both books are whopping good reads especially if you enjoy really good writing with an urban fantasy theme that is not all doom and gloom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first book.... Wow! 11 August 2015
By Para-Urban Review - Published on Amazon.com

***Contains Spoilers***

This book was just...wow... It was awesome. I couldn't put the first book, Chase the Dark, down the first time I read it and it was just as difficult to do it the 2nd time around too! And then you read this one, Bind the Soul, and you realise the story is only going to get more gripping as it progresses.

Ms Marie writes so beautifully, you're pulled into Piper's world first hand, you experience her pain, her joy, her growing feelings for Ash - and her panic when she realises Ash is missing. She knows there's only one place he can be - the Underworld. And it's the one place she needs to avoid like the plague now that Samael has the stone and he knows she's the only one who can wield it!

However, once again her life goes to hell in a handbasket (literally) and she finds herself a captive of Samael in the Underworld. True to the environment, the story gets quite dark and painful and we see how these events mould Piper into a stronger, more self-aware version of herself. We also gain deeper insight into the Sahar itself, how it was created and why Piper appears to be the only person who can wield it. We also begin to understand a lot more about what drives Ash and get tantalising hints of the real, caring daemon beneath the killer rep. The story of the draconian race is fascinating and I suspect this may feature somewhere in one of the many threads that will end the story.

This is where we begin to realise that sweet Piper doesn't fully understand what Ash really means to her; She comes across quite niaive and believes her concern and determination to save Ash is what friends would do for each other. But, from a readers perspective, it's clear that something totally scrumptious is blossoming between them. For readers looking for a straight romance story you may be a little disappointed.... there is definitely romance here but I just don't read romance stories per-se, and this definitely isn't one! This story beautifully combines urban fantasy, a kick-ass protagonist, gorgeously wicked heroes, fantastical new worlds and first class story-telling enchantingly wrapped up in ribbons of romance. The type of romance that leaves you wanting to lick the plate after finishing your dessert - totally more-ish!!

Piper doesn't yet realise she's led a very sheltered and protected life - I have serious issues with her father (and her mother!) and I'm really hoping that her father's way of raising her is not due to his 'non-existent parental chromosome' but because he loves her. After all, the Piper we love just wouldn't be Piper without the upbringing she had! Let's see what the next book reveals in this regard.

Now onto Book 3 of the Steel & Stone series, Yield the Night! If you're planning on reading these (and I recommend you do - they're totally, absolutely awesome!) then you should read them in order - they are not standalone novels. There are not many series out there that I just can't wait to get my hands on but this is one of them - they will have a permanent home on my bookshelf.
