Product Description

Even When You CHANGE, Some Things Remain the Same . . .


Erin Radkey’s life has altered completely since her Change made her one of the Unbounded. Yet she has learned the hard way that some things never change.

Greed. Over the centuries the long-lived Unbounded have divided into two groups, the Emporium who craves money and power and will do anything to achieve its ends, including experimenting on its own people, and the Renegades who protect humanity.

Power. Now the Renegades are close to discovering a cure that will save many dying mortals, and the husband of Erin’s closest friend is first in line to receive the formula. But Emporium agents will stop at nothing to destroy the cure—until they realize the research might be exactly the weapon they’ve been searching for.

Love. Erin’s new abilities are tested as she and fellow Renegades fight the Emporium in a struggle that soon becomes all too personal, and where lines of loyalty are blurred by relationships of the past. Everything is at risk, including the lives of her friends—and the love of Ritter Langton, the Renegade Unbounded who both infuriates and excites her.

From the busy streets of Portland to the jungles of Mexico, The Cure is a page-turning urban fantasy that will keep you riveted until the end.

This is book three in a series- I highly recommend that you start reading book one and two before delving into this one. Great read. Detailed but exciting plot. Believable characters. Great writer... cant wait for more

5.0 out of 5 stars A 4.6 Really 13 November 2015
By J.C. Prins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story grabs you from the get-go and you just hold on for the journey. Contrary to statements made in my review of the first book, there were a handful of editing errors, primarily the absence of prepositions. The same holds true for this book as well, but the errors are rare and it is easy to figure out what was meant. I would have liked it if the second book had picked up exactly where the first book left off. Nevertheless, the new character, Mari, which is where the book starts, turns into a delight. I also hope that we spend more time with Oliver. This book is 56 pages shorter than the first book and you can tell. The first book was substantial, multifaceted. This book, while telling a great story, lacks the same heft or intricacy. Don't get me wrong. I really enjoyed this book. The plot, the characters, and just the whole world sucked me in and life went racing by while I devoured this book. However, the ending was a little anticlimactic. In the end, this was an entertaining and fast-paced book that I couldn't put down, but it seemed to lack a little meat.

On another note, while the specific facts about being Unbounded were repeated, I really think that one needs to have read the first book to truly understand what is happening in the second. I don't think it works as a stand-alone book.
3.0 out of 5 stars but we don't really get to know the love interest (Ritter) to get more of a feel and ... 29 March 2017
By M. Avery - Published on Amazon.com

The writing is decent enough, though I've read books by authors with much higher skill.
There isn't much character development/depth. I mean the MC's powers get stronger and the plots get thicker/higher stakes.....but we don't really get to know the love interest (Ritter) to get more of a feel and attraction for him....to continue to really root for him and Erin.
Their emotional depth is that of teen or college student....which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I do like more depth and roundness to characters. And you'd expect more with them being in their 30s.
Erin has too much of a hard time making the tough decisions, imo. Like staying away from her family so that they are not in danger. But I guess some readers need to see that for themselves as well (perhaps I read way more urban fantasy/paranormal/etc that I already understand the concept of staying away from them for their safety and to have to make tough killing decisions and having to cope with them--I know the author wants them to retain their humanity but in this world it would seem you'd have be harder than the author allows Erin to be. And in other books, the MC are though they are still compassionate/retain humanity). Her over worry over her brothers started bothering me. I couldn't understand why she felt the need to control them/their actions and couldn't just trust them to be apart of a team. They are grown adults. They make their own decisions about their lives and the children they may or may not raise. Their sister doesn't need to agree or approve or give them permission. Yes, I understand sisterly worry. I have 7 siblings. I get it. But she needs to seriously chill.
By the end of the 2nd book, you'd think we'd get to know Ritter just a bit more. We don't...which contributes to the flatness and lack of emotional depth. I do find myself skipping a lot of Erin's inner dialogue and descriptions. Some of it doesn't really contribute to the overall story, tension, depth, world building or character developing. So I skip some sentences. More than I normally do with some books.

BUT overall, the book/series is good. I enjoy the plot. The action is great. It's unique! I'm starting the third book and plan to read the 4th and the 5th novel (of course, that is dependent upon the 3rd). I won't get into the novellas though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Woman beating on a Man who she love/hates 23 March 2016
By Elder Geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love the trend towards Female Protagonist/Heroes. I hate that many of them seem to like to physically fight with their love interest. What the heck? Why is this a 'thing' recently? A man should not hit/slug/batter his love interest - and no woman should do the same. It's distressing. "I love him so much and I HATE him therefore we fight - not only with fists but with cudgels!! Or whatever is at hand" What a disgusting trope. Why not fight the antagonists side by side and leave the tension building to verbal sparring. Good heavens I'm tired of this trend. And sadly it always seems like this tired trope is perpetuated by female authors. *sigh* Otherwise this book and the series are good. But this thing ruins it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cure continues the adventure 31 August 2014
By EBW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Teyla Branton’s The Cure, Unbounded Book 2, is an ambitious sequel to The Change. There are some new characters we meet while strange universe created in the introduction to the series is expanded along with the godlike abilities of the quasi-immortals. Again we see things through Erin’s point of view as she continues the wrestle with the reality of who and what she has become along with her origins and those who were important to her before her Change.

There is a trick to writing a series. The author must keep the readers from earlier books happy with the advance of the storyline while writing in a way that can stand alone should someone read only the one book or read the series out of sequence. Of course the objective is to entice every reader into becoming a fan of the entire series. Some would give a prologue with all a summary of the previous story. But Branton has chosen the better alternative to battle the fabled sophomore jinx, continuing the story while filling in the background where necessary and in such a way that it is not obtrusive to anyone who read the previous work. After all, there may have been some gap between reading the books and a little refreshing of the storyline doesn’t hurt. Readers of a serial will naturally compare the books and some will find each successive sequel lacking in some way while others will enjoy how the story is continued with the characters they already know. The critical way to judge a series is whether the story is consistent between books and is the plot carried forward. The Cure meets both criteria.

While Branton covers the necessary elements she deals with the unresolved tensions between characters and advances their relationships. The addition of new blood in the story, Mari, Oliver and Benito lends a feeling of authenticity to the fictional world as it grows to accommodate more complexities. Each new character has a key role in the story validated in action lending sufficient depth and backstory.

There is a lot more action in this fast paced installment as the Renegades continue their war against the Emporium. Although The Hunters are involved early on in this story and are mentioned throughout they are not as large a factor in this part of the story as the rivalry between the two factions of the Unbounded. Romantic elements established in the first book are also brought into the mix as we get to know more about Ritter and Keene as well as Erin.

The objective of the Renegades is to rescue scientists who have been working on a cure for autoimmune disease. In doing so they must go into the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico to thwart the Emporium’s murderous attempts to suppress the technology. The Emporium, being heavily invested in the pharmaceutical industry in the production of medications for treatment of the disease, has no desire in allowing a cure to be made available.

It's a tough challenge writing the follow up for a popular book. Sometimes the story dictates where the author must take it and, as most writers know, trying to guide where a story will go doesn’t always work out for the best. With The Cure, Branton has taken her readers exactly where we should go in preparation for the third and fourth books of the series. I’m glad they are already available because I plan to work them into my schedule. Expect reviews of the next two books of this innovative paranormal series in the near future.

3.0 out of 5 stars sadly not what I expected.. 15 January 2015
By Danny Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the first book of the series. Book one introduced likable characters an interesting story and the promise of a romantic connection. Book 2 fell completely flat for me.

This book had a bunch of action I never really cared about and did not really serve to further the story plot.

Had the author included some romance with Ritter..it may have held my interest..but sadly..there was nothing in this book to grab me and make me want to spend my time or money on another installment of this series.

I cannot recommend spending money on this one..to anyone expecting romance, like I was.
But..if you like action..then this is definitely the book for you!
