About this deal

So, I’m just going to combine them all together as I have done with other series that captivated my attention to this extent. It centers on Oleander - Oli - who has to deal with the repercussions of outing one of her gifts to her bonds and the other gifted. But once he learns the truth, North is still possessive and controlling but more devoted and ready to give Oli literally anything she wants.

I originally discovered this series through TikTok, but only ever heard that they were fantastic without any real details around the plot which I appreciate so I could go into the series without there being spoilers. Their entire society revolves around multiple pairings in a bond group with a central bond (individual) in the middle, usually with the pairs being male and female, though it’s not uncommon that there might be some bisexual pairings within the same bond group. Kieran: “You’re in so far over your head, she’s going to eat you all alive and I’m going to enjoy the show.There is an animalistic nature to the bonds - the touch them and die possession, the protective nature, the comfort of her bonds scents, and the rage another woman's scent provokes - that I am not sure is typical of all gifted people, or just Oli and her bonds. Something that we learn has been manipulative with several groups outside of the main one we’re following. But what made it hard to read, I have to get into spoilers to explain to you, and most important of all, give you all a trigger warning. The stable foundation I thought I’d built in the Sanctuary has been ripped away, and I find myself on the front lines of the war against the Resistance.

After thousands of years of being apart, our god bonds are reunited once again; and they’re not ready to go down without a fight. Also, if you like this post, let me know in the comment section, it really helps me figure out what content you guys appreciate. He knows there is a clip in Oli’s head (granted he doesn’t know the full amount of what it does but we don’t know that) that can be used to track her and even threatens to chain her to his basement if she tries to leave. After letting her gift out, she is finding it harder to reign it in, especially her desire to complete the bonding with her bonds. Like Sawyer and Grey who turn out to be in the same bond group, so though they’ve been in a relationship for ages it’s not like they’re going to be pulled apart but there is a shift that happens that we get to see play out.I want to learn how someone like Nox Draven can be loved and accepted, and then I want to spend the rest of my life doing it. When Atlas learned what Silas was doing to Oleander and the role his family played in it, he betrayed them and only his mother was sympathetic to his cause. Because I had a full five minutes of knowing what life felt like without your heart beating, and I am never going to live in that world. Her entire group gets messed with in more ways than one, so we can see the negative side effects that are happening in the larger picture. My only complaint about the series so far, is that I feel like the world could be developed a little more.

So, while we aren’t following those characters we still have more world-building outside of the relationship of the main group.Oli's Bonded group has been torn apart, but she and the god inside of her will do anything to save her Bonded and have her group together again. I’m no longer the Giftless reject, no longer the girl who’s fair game to the other students for daring to run away from my Bonds. It’s also written in a way where the main conflict of that book you see addressed in that book with the next one introduced at the end, while still maintaining the overall plot of the series without it feeling like a lot of things are left hanging or unanswered. And it’s not like she just gave into it all at once, each one of the relationships goes about it slightly differently in how they get to that final Bonded stage. So, we spend a lot of the books with Oli not wanting them to get close for a number of reasons: fear they will be targeted, fear her powers will grow (something she has been repressing for years), and fear that they will never accept her if they learn the truth of what happened to her all those years ago.
