    1. I don't tend to read books surrounding fae, but this one sounded pretty interesting so I decided to check it out. I did enjoy it a lot. It wasn't the best book, but there were some interesting things. The characters were likable and their story interesting. Basically, they had to save the tree of life to prevent the destruction of the entire fae population. No big deal. The writing was alright, not great but not bad. It switched between multiple perspectives, which I like, but at a few points it [...]

    2. Will Sean Connery play Eamon the Scottish garden gnome in the film adaptation?I enjoyed this book much more that I thought I would. It was clever and fun and fast-paced, with just the right amount of Arthurian myth thrown in to keep it all centered. I actually learned a thing or two, which is not easy. The dialog is very good and snaps right along. When Lizbet, our suburban teenage girl linked to a fabled past through previous lives, is asked to go on a grave-robbing jaunt, at first she recoils- [...]

    3. Really good readThis book was really good. I was really expecting a teenage romance and to quit reading a couple chapters in. Actually I almost didn't even read it for that reason. I have been out of college for years. High School is just a vague memory. I couldn't quit flipping the pages. I just couldn't get to the next line fast enough.

    4. Fascinating concepts about the Fae, gnomes, and young adult love. The Arthurian legends were a bit twisted in this tale but they were handled well,and kept the book fun. Well rounded characters made the book interesting. *I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

    5. I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.Fifteen year old Lizbet is given a magical amulet which shows her that she has connections to another realm and also who she was in her previous lives. She travels from America to Scotland together with James, the cute boy from nextdoor and a magical gnome named Eamon, on a quest to save the fae from being destroyed forever when a land development threatens the Tree Of Life.What I liked about this story was that it was fast pace [...]

    6. Great Story with lots of magicI found this book to be a joy to read. The plot was a well thought out one with the right touch of magic and human interaction.I have always been fascinated by time travel stories and this one has a nice twist to it. I am confident that you will enjoy this as much as I did.

    7. So Magic Unbound is the YA tale of a half-fae girl tasked with rescuing the Tree of Life and saving all the fae. All she has to do is put on an amulet to remember all her past lives and figure out some cryptic messages left by a long dead druid.Total cake walk What I liked:All in all, I really liked the idea behind the story. Even when the author took Arthurian Legends and shifted them around to fit their story ideas. Especially since she managed to explain the differences between “history” [...]

    8. If you're looking for a fae book. That has a socttish gnome/fae, then unbound fae is the book for you. *spoiler*Where do I start, maybe that eamon is a Scottish gnome/fae. Is a witty and I was very wary, he was acting very weird within the tenth chapter.I thought when the way jill (the author) had made lizzy pretend to her mum she was saying at her dads. and her dad that she's staying with her mum, was kinda stupid because what parent would check to make sure their isn't lying. it's not like I n [...]

    9. I rated this book 3.5/5 stars if you're looking for a fae book. That has a socttish gnome/fae, then unbound fae is the book for you. *spoiler*Where do I start, maybe that eamon is a Scottish gnome/fae. Is a witty and I was very wary, he was acting very weird within the tenth chapter.I thought when the way jill (the author) had made lizzy pretend to her mum she was saying at her dads. and her dad that she's staying with her mum, was kinda stupid because what parent would check to make sure their [...]

    10. *I received this book in exchange for an honest review*I loved the plot of this book. A girl who expects a boring last month of summer vacation suddenly finds herself in this exciting adventure. There's a gnome in her backyard which isn't really a gnome, but a fifteen-hundred year old Fae. And her geeky next door neighbor likes her. There wasn't a lot of romance in this book, and that was a little disappointing. I really think that James and Lizbet would be cute together, and through out the boo [...]

    11. The story behind this novel is actually pretty good. It pulls bits from the Arthurian legend into an interesting, modern-day twist. The character of Eamon the fae is funny, and the quest Lizbet and James enter is full of adventure and danger.But, the characters fall a bit flat. There is nothing particularly interesting about Lizbet or James--the only well drawn-out character is Eamon. And the story is very linear--from start to finish nothing is left out, and most of the book comprises of the jo [...]

    12. Fantastical journey of a young girl who is the vessel for Morgan le Fae's memories of past lives. It's up to Lisbet to save the future of the Fae. With the help of a garden gnome and the cute college boy next door, she aims to do just that. Even if it means she'll be grounded for the rest of her lifeat is, if she survives. I thought this was a great read. It was fast and kept me interested the whole time. There were just a few times where I was confused or the the suspension of disbelief was jus [...]

    13. A delightful read! Magic Unbound, an adventure for the young at heartI enjoyed the style of the author's Nojack's writing which thrusts us from the perspective of Lizbet's normal teenage girl's reality into a world where a garden gnome is not what it seems. The story is filled with magic and surprises-- Lizbet is not who she thinks she is either.A very entertaining read and definitely a book I'll share with others who enjoy fantasy and magic with a down to earth conundrum - if our teen protagoni [...]

    14. This book was great fun, if a little short! But that just made me wish it was longer. I guess I'll have to be patient and wait for the next book in the series for more.There wasn't much in the way of sub-plots (maybe because this is a YA book?), but the action was very good, and it just kept chugging along to a dramatic ending. There were a lot of funny lines by the characters as they traveled from the US to Scotland to try to save the fae, who have been hidden from everyone in their own shadow [...]

    15. This story line is a little hard to track sometimes with the hero and heroine being reincarnated so many times but it was still a decent read. Still believe the gnome and Morgan Le Fay have something they are hiding that our heroine does not know about so far. Not sure I'm planning to read the rest of the series unless the price drops a bit. I have too many other books I can read instead that I am anxious to get to and this one was a bit strange.

    16. I like the story, it's cute, but a 15 year old girl and a 19 year old "man" just isn't right. Granted, the man is conflicted about the whole thing, but he still ends up kissing her. Thumbs down on that one.For my clean readers:The only language, per say, is taking the Lord's name in vain.And then the above mentioned relationship will require extra thought for a parent to decide whether they want their term to read it or not.

    17. No siempre leo YA, los que me conocen ya saben las razones; creo que no estan escritos de forma como a mi me gusta, son muy vagos a la hora de describir, y en algunos libros de YA los personajes no se desarrollan muy bien, cosa que me parece importante.Este libro no fue malo, pero tampoco fue la gran cosa. Aunque me aburría en otras partes, pero tengo que reconocer que fue bien original y esta perfecto para alguien que quiero un poco de lectura ligera en el verano.

    18. A light and easy read with fun dialog. The author did a good job of keeping the story grounded with actual, realistic repercussions for a teenager's actions that somehow made the fae world more believable. Only in the last few pages did the book lose some of its great pacing by seeming to rush the ending, like they were trying too hard to leave cliff hangers for the next book. Despite that I'll be picking up the next one in the series!

    19. Magical excitement revealedFae. Gnomes. History rewritten. Spells cast and broke. Chased by bad guys and tricked by fairy folk. This book has it all! Unveil the magic and reveal the mystery of e very child's perfect adventure come to life. If it were not for some slow spots I would have given enough it 5 stars.

    20. What if your boring self turned out to be a legend?I really enjoyed this short novel. A teenage girl, whose most pressing issues included avoiding her younger brother and what she was going to do while her best friend was away, finds out she's Morgan, from Arthurian legend and half fae. And now the fairy kingdom needs her to save their world.

    21. This book is positively upbeat. (See what I did there? Ha!) About a nearly-but-not-quite sixteen year old, it is an optimistic book with some surprisingly real life problems while being planted firmly in fantasy fiction. It's an easy, fun read. I honestly don't know that I would've read it had it not been given to me as a gift, but now I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.

    22. I hate not giving an absolutely raving review of clean teen fiction (it's so hard to come by), but this book was just average for me. I guess I wanted more fantastical stuffe spirit possession and split personalities aren't enough for mes, I'm very pickyWell written, minor swearing.

    23. Definitely wish it had more of the myths and legends of Morgan and Merlin, but I fully enjoyed this book nonetheless. Very fast read and easy to follow along with. Can't wait to read the rest of the series or try them out.

    24. Magic Unbound-Wonderful trip into fantasy!Fun read about fairies and magicians of old. Keep my interest the whole way also kept me guessing what would happen next. Very good read!

    25. Clean, easy read. Just enough sexual tension for a young teen, without being graphic. I had difficulty with suspension of disbelief at times, and also felt the author could have increased the stakes. But I liked the overall idea. Might recommend to a tween.

    26. Fantasy at its finest!Unusual cast of characters drew me in from the beginning . Each character was given a definite roll to play. The main character, Lisbet, was a young teen but had the memories of several lifetimes to wade through before the final scene that surprised me.

    27. This was a really interesting ya novel. This book had characters to love and a nicely twisted plot. This book was enjoyable from start to finish.
