Review of Julia Unbound by Catherine Egan; review by teen reviewer Sanah Sanduja

Julia Unbound is a very interesting yet high level novel.

Although the story is very captivating and the author’s language is moving, there are many things going on at once. When I began reading, I was not aware that this was the third book in the series. The author introduces several characters and locations too fast, and there was a lot of backstory connected to it from the previous two books in the series; I would have enjoyed it much more if I had read those beforehand.

Julia is close to being controlled by Casimir, a sinister man looking for something from her. As a threat, Casimir places a poison sac near Benedek’s (Julia’s brother) heart, soon to burst. She must face witches, royalty, and different worlds in order to save her brother’s life and to not fall under the influence of Casimir’s control.

Throughout the story, you truly feel Julia’s thinking process and emotions with every terrifying decision she must make.

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy involved fantasies but also definitely suggest to read the first two novels of the series first.

Rating: 4 out of 5
