Tril is a world where Barrons and Healers are Bound to each other: Barrons fight and Healers cure their Barrons' wounds in the ongoing war with the evil Graplar King. Seventeen-year-old Kaya was born a Healer, but she wants to fight. In Tril, and at Shadow Academy, where she is sent to learn to heal, it is against Protocol for Healers to fight. So Kaya must learn in secret. Enter two young men: One charming, rule-following Barron who becomes Bound to Kaya and whose life she must protect at all costs. And one with a mysterious past who seems bent on making Kaya's life as difficult as possible. Kaya asks both to train her, but only one will, and the consequences will change their lives forever.

I instantly loved the world of Tril that's filled with the skilled and the unskilled. In the society of skilled, there are those who are fighters, known as Barrons, and those who are Healers. In the strange world of the skilled, the Healers are not viewed as equals to Barrons even though Healers have the power of holding the life of their Barron in their hands.

Kaya, who was raised around the unskilled, is use to freedom and equality. She does not respond well to the rules when she's thrown into the Shadow Academy. All Kaya wants is to learn how to defend for herself and be independent. She was furious when she learned that she was not allowed to learn how to fight because of being a Healer. But Kaya is not the kind of girl to just give up there. 

I absolutely loved the company that Kaya kept at the Shadow Academy. There's Maddox, the unlikely best friend who helps her get away with all sorts of trouble. Then there's Darius, the tortured soul with an unknown history, and for some reason gives the impression of hating Kaya. And then there's Trayton, the sweet heart that is bound to Kaya, and also Darius' best friend. This group of people are constantly keeping life interesting with their personalities.

Overall: 5 out of 5
This is my first time reading one of Brewer’s works and I am in love with her story telling. Soulbound ended with a cliffhanger that left me with a huge need. I NEED to know what happens next. I NEED Soulbroken
