Bonds that Bind - Art cover

So, after a very long time of zero artwork of my story, I decided to commission a good friend to draw me some. And voila, here's what he did. This scene represents the culmination of Summer's journey across Tavolous, leaving her battle-hardened, wary, surviving many dangerous encounters to make the final fight against Black Nex. Behind her you can see the capital of Verculum, the fate of all hanging in the balance. I don't consider this spoiling much as we've yet to see all which will happen leading up to this.

Older readers of my story will notice I changed the title from Bonds of Eeveelution to Bonds that Bind. It's something I should've done ages ago, as I like this sense of maturity now - this being a story aimed more towards adults who still enjoy Pokémon but seek darker tones. That being said, I have nothing against anyone who fancies giving Bonds that Bind a read, just be aware it's far from child-friendly.

This gorgeous artwork comes courtesy of the amazingly talented :iconeryz-defin: - absolutely go give him a look!

Wow this is a really great piece! Eryz-Defin did a fantastic job! It's been too long since I've last read Bonds, and I certainly partly blame higher education for that.

That aside, I do plan some time to start from the beginning and read up, it's certainly been cool to follow what was happening with all the characters as they went onward.

Really appreciate it, Sky! Bonds ain't going anywhere so anytime you're ready, you go ahead. Hope you're staying safe! ;3

The feeling's mutual, hope you're doing alright yourself. And by the by, that's a great new profile pic you're sporting there!

Sure am, good balance between work, writing, and gaming!

Good to see. As said, that's a really nice profile pic you're now sporting. I'll figure out time to start reading Bonds again

Whoa, Michael! This rocks! Dang, Summer's got some scars on her. I like that! And OH MY GOSH! That's a ferris wheel in the background! :D

Eryz did a fantastic job! I also agree that the new title is an upgrade.
