Bound by Theresa Redmond

In the late 1700s, determinedly independent Suzanna Torriano arrives on St. John’s Island as an amateur botanist and the new governor’s mistress. But Suzanna is soon caught between two worlds—the colonial pressures from Britain that are at odds with the freedoms and progress of the Island’s many inhabitants. Suzanna is called to social action, and the stakes are high. When Freelove, a pregnant enslaved woman, is accused of stealing from her master and sentenced to death, Suzanna rallies support from unexpected places. From Acadian healer Pierre Gallant to the local Quakers to Scottish laird Ian MacDonald, the growing community attempts to expose Governor Patterson’s failures, challenge land right disputes, and advocate for all enslaved people’s emancipation.

Through the lives of various characters, Bound navigates the challenges and triumphs of settler life. Will colonial greed win, or will the Island’s diverse inhabitants succeed in laying the groundwork for a fair new world?

It’s been a century since “the great consumption.” Humanity has been devoured to the edge of extinction by the ever-ravenous Shivers – terrifying, shapeless creatures that latch onto their hosts, tormenting them over time before consuming them all at once. The last of civilization lives in the crumbling city of Atlas, where they subsist on processed insects and await their inevitable fate.

Anthem is the city Exilist, tasked with trapping the Shivers and banishing them to the malevolent Deadlands outside the city walls. But Anthem is ailing and destined to soon fall victim to his own Shiver, a fate he’s reluctantly accepted. As Anthem begins to withdraw from his world, a threat he’s unprepared for comes hurtling home. If he is to save anyone, he will have to travel into the Deadlands in search of a remedy to tame these creatures. But no Atlas dweller has ever made it back alive, and Anthem must confront his own darkness before humankind is forever lost to the monsters in our shadows.
