After escaping from a cult, Lexi found refuge with her sisters on the farm that more than sustained her body—it nurtured her soul as well. But she never forgot the terror she left behind or the always present fear that the cult would find her again, and claim her. Then her nightmare came true.Earth bound is the fourth book in the Sea Haven series and tells the story of Lexi, the sister gifted with the earth element and Gavriil Prakenskii, one of the oldest brothers.
Lexi was discovered and threatened—only to be suddenly saved by a stranger. He is Gavriil Prakenskii, and he’s awestruck by the woman he’s rescued. She is destined for him. He can feel it in his soul. But how can Lexi find happiness with a man steeped in secrets and shadows, one intimately acquainted with violence, and whose very love could be the death of them?
When Lexi moved to Sea Haven with her five sisters to start anew she was pleased to run their farm being responsible for a farm isn’t easy but Lexi loved taking care of it. It also helped that she could feel what the earth needed. But Lexi’s past isn’t that different from that of her sisters’.
Her past is once again haunting her. Lexi was just eight when she was kidnapped from her home and forced to live with a monster who abused her. She may have escaped and moved on but she has never forgotten her past. When the monster of her past comes looking for her she is the one that will trap him this time. But there is another man at her farm, only he isn’t there to harm her but to protect her.
Wow! Gavriil was so defferent from his other brothers. They were all forced to watch their parents get killed, they were later separated and trained. Gavriil was supposed to be a killing machine, he was trained to be and they succeeded. But he never forgot his brothers. As one of the oldest, he always watched over them from afar. Now they are all in grave danger and he has come to warn them, especially Illya, the youngest of all.
Lexi and Gavriil were very alike. They have both suffered physical and emotional wounds but together they managed to heal. Gavriil was a very likeable character. He had endured much but yet he never once broke. He loved his brothers and he came to love the young farmer who teased and protected him from the porch while he lay healing on her bed.
Earth bound was an amazing book. The story was heartbreaking and emotional but in the end the pain was worth it. I loved that we got to see Illya and Jonas. I’d have loved to see Jolie too but that didn’t happen.
Lexi and Gavriil’s story captivated me. I read it in one sitting. I just wanted to find out what their future held and I did. I hope we get to see more of them in the upcoming books. I’m really looking forward for more.
