Rating: 3,5 out of 5 stars
I was really curious about this book and so happy when I scored the ARC. But it disappointed me a little.
Let’s start from the beginning. The blurb tells you everything you need to know, but I honestly thought I was going to read a different story, in some ways I thought it would have been more troubling. Instead what I found was a really sweet book.
Set in the kingdom of Teruna where young boys and girls are forced to leave their family and join the Seruan, becoming the lower caste, Prince Tanish and Seruan Feyar are together for seven years. It’s love at first sight but it needs to be a secret. When the fear of an attack from an enemy kingdom brought the King to look for an alliance with the neighbor King of Vancor, the wedding between Tanish and the Prince of Vancor, Sorran, seems the only way to join two kingdoms and be ready to face a war.
The young Sorran is sweet and innocent and he needs someone to teach him the art of love. Guess who’s chosen as a teacher? Our Feyar. Both Tanish and Feyar can’t oppose to the king’s order but they are resolute in their dislike of the young one. But Sorran is hard to resist and as Fate would have it, love will become the bond that will tie the three of them forever.
I loved how the author presents the three MCs. They’re so young but so firm in their decisions and their love. Each one of them is the perfect one for the other ones. Especially I loved Sorran, cause he will be the one to show Feyar and Tanish the path to a new era full of equality and justice.
Now, why the disappointment? I honestly was waiting for something to happen. But everything went pretty smooth. I’m not saying the book is boring. On the contrary, it is enjoyable, really sweet and things happened. But I was waiting for something more, especially for a fantasy book where pretty much everything is allowed. Just a little more action or drama.
I want to add that the characters and every scene are described very well. KC is a master in her writing. I like her style, her fluency and easiness in every sentence. I was so glad she chose to use an alternate POV between the three men , it was perfect way to understand every shade of their feelings.
I can honestly say I preferred her contemporary books. But if you are looking for a light read with a lot of sweetness, some hot sex and some magical aspects, you can’t miss A Bond Of Three.

The cover fits the three MCs perfectly and the models aren’t bad at all. If you have read anything by Miss Wells I think you’re already used to see some beauty on her covers. This one is no exception.
