This is dark fantasy at its finest. Bridget Collins has created a beautiful, awful alternate universe where it is possible to have your memories bound into a book - for a horrible price. When Emmett is apprenticed to a Binder he is thrust into a world of murder, betrayal, magic and romance. How much will he be asked to take from those he loves, and how much has been taken from him? You'lll be swept along with the mystery and left breathless and wanting more by the end. - Rebecca (QBD)
