Synopsis: After her father dies, Rachel realizes she is scared and stuck. Scared of heights, of cars, of disasters harming the people she loves. Stuck in a life that is getting smaller by the minute. Stuck with a secret she has kept all her life: Someone has been watching over her since birth. Someone who tends to show up when she needs him the most. Someone she believes is her guardian angel.
Eaden is a 1,500-year-old immortal who wants to die. Drained by a life stretched too thin, he has requested his final reward – a mortal sacrifice bred specifically to bring him death. But something went wrong. Rachel’s ability to grant death has mutated in ways that threaten to upset the uneasy alliance between mortals and immortals. And utterly beguiled, Eaden discovers that although Rachel is the key to his death, because of her, he no longer wants to die. And he will do anything to protect her.
Swept into a world of legends, caught between the warring political factions of immortals, and carrying the future of mortal kind in her flesh and bone, Rachel must risk everything to save her world and the man she loves.
Series: Unbound (1)
Review: Rachel is caught up in her fears and her grief, keeping her from living her life to the fullest. Rachel barely goes anywhere but work and home and she only has one good friend. Yet she knows someone has been watching over her entire life and for the longest time she was unsure he was real…but he is real and she is more connected to him than she knows. Eaden is an immortal searching for the key to ending his life and it’s Rachel. He’s been watching over Rachel since her birth, but as she’s grown he’s also protected her without her knowledge. When he reveals himself to Rachel a whole new world opens up, but it may prove more dangerous than they’d ever imagined. Will they be prepared? I loved ‘Unbound’! I adored the characters, the unique story, the intrigue, the action, and the rollercoaster of emotions (for the characters and readers, alike!). I don’t want to give much away - ‘Unbound’ is a definite must read!
