Product Description

They Have Become the Guardians of Humanity

Renegade Unbounded are the last line of defense between the ruthless Emporium and unsuspecting humanity, but how long can they continue the struggle alone?

Three weeks of waiting to free their allies from an Emporium compound in New York City have Erin Radkey and her Renegade friends on edge. Frustrations run even higher when they uncover a new Emporium plot involving the nation's highest leaders, a plan full of more deceit than Erin imagined possible. With each passing day, the pendulum swings closer to world-wide Emporium rule and mortal servitude.

Making sense of her personal life is every bit as challenging as being a guardian of humanity. Erin fears that her increasing abilities will alienate everyone around her, including those who love her most. Her relationship with Ritter Langton has been on hold these past anxious weeks, and though their connection runs undeniably deep, the constant presence of the mortal Keene McIntyre adds to the tension between them. Choices loom before Erin that affect not only her personal life but how she does her job.

With political intrigue and non-stop action, the Escape adds satisfying dimension to the Unbounded world, whose characters and storyline have captured the imaginations of thousands of readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn good, but I'm not sure if i'll continue the series 28 January 2017
By Sandman Incognito - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This series was a page turner for me! I loved that Teyla can write a fast-paced story that sucks you in. It is an easy read for sure. I thoroughly enjoyed the first three books (I really couldn't put them down), but I'm honestly not sure if I will continue the series. Here's why...
The character development could be better... these books focus more on the action (which is great) but it makes some of the characters rather flat when the focus is really only on the fighting and action. Even the description of their physical attributes could be better as I had a hard time picturing them. I always want to fall

Overall, I really enjoyed all 3 books to-date, but my biggest complaint is that this could practically be a YA book. The characters are normal adult age, but their emotional depth is that of teenagers. Erin and Ritter in particular drove me crazy. I certainly don't mind a little 'teasing' when the author leaves you wanting more and makes you wait for it. But by book three, this just drags on too much and is totally unsatisfactory. It doesn't need to be a romance novel obviously, but it's such an important theme throughout the books it is just annoying that there is so little progression.

Lastly, the dynamics of the two nemesis/at-war unbounded groups (Emporium and Renegades) are also a little childish and immature. It's a little too black and white, so I'm not fully vested into the world-building (with an all evil empire trying to take over the world).

So if you are ok with somewhat flat characters and you just want a good action book/escapism reading with fast-paced fight scenes, this is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of The Series So Far. 7 September 2014
By EBW - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Escape is the third book of the Unbounded Series by Teyla Branton. If you aren’t familiar with the series, here’s a brief overview.

Erin is Unbounded meaning she is quasi-immortal. Like other Unbounded she was born like every other human but around the time she turned thirty she experienced the Change. The Unbounded have the ability to recover from serious, injuries that to mortals would be fatal. Their bodies are designed to survive and regenerate. This also means that their reproduction is almost a certain consequence of sexual intercourse.

Erin might live for two thousand years unless someone severs the connections between her brain, hearts and reproductive organs. She belongs to a group of other Unbounded called Renegades. A rival group called the Emporium wants to take over the world and subjugate all mortals to servitude and to do so they must overcome resistance of the Renegades either converting them to their cause of eliminated them – usually the latter unless the renegade possesses an ability the Emporium desires for their breeding experiments.

Meanwhile a group of mortals called the Hunters want to get rid of all both groups of Unbounded, Fortunately for the Unbounded the Hunters aren’t all that bright. Still, they are dangerous adversaries.

In The Escape, Erin is learning more and more about her special ability, called sensing. In the previous episode she realized that she could sometimes borrow abilities from other unbounded and she also learned that sometimes she could penetrate the mental defense of others. Here she must use what she has learned about herself in combination with the abilities of others we met in the previous installments. The objective is facilitating the escape of Renegade prisoners from the Emporium strong hold in New York City. In the process of planning Erin discovers the nature of the Emporium’s evil plans to take control of the government through subterfuge and murder.

Although I’m not normally a huge fan of paranormal novels I have seemed o read a number of them in the past year. II enjoy the unleashed imagination that is possible when characters can defy the laws of physics – or rather utilize or explore other, undiscovered levels of the physical universe. It makes for good fantasy, especially if the story is told with enough realism that a reader can easily be drawn into the story.

Branton excels in character development giving us an array of people to care about throughout the telling. This volume has action, mystery, suspense and romance blended together with a healthy dose of political intrigue. I am looking forward to reading The Reckoning, Unbounded Book 4, already available at Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars She did it again 7 September 2016
By Brianna Seaton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

These books always keep me on the edge of my seat. I love how all the characters develop rather thanksgiving a side character to the story. The books all flow together great and the writing is still amazing. This book has on twist at the very end that you won't see coming but will be very happy about!

As much as I love Erin and Ritter together, I really wish she would choose Keene! She always mentions the connection tion she has with Ritter but once upon a time, she did have one with Keene too. I hope Teyla will bring them together in the last couple books or that Ritter and Erins relationship grows more. If that is the outcome, I hope Keene finds someone to love. He is one of my favorites!

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved this one more the the first two (not that ... 30 March 2017

Wow! Really impressed with this book!! Loved this one more the the first two (not that the first two weren't bad--they weren't in the least)! Can't wait to read the fourth. This one I didn't want to put down. And Ritter and Erin FINALLY get somewhere (a little), thankfully. I love how the story/plot is shaping up. I really do love this world!
I'm so curious as to what the fourth book brings!
Of course I stand by my previous reviews of the previous books, but this book gripped me more than the last two and is so worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My Goodness, That Was So Good!! Yeah! 25 August 2014
By Sassy Lola - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Finally! That was really good. Just couldn't put it down until I finished. Erin finally made up her mind about some things. More importantly, Erin was on it & taking care of business. I really liked Mari as her sidekick; hope to see more of her. I was so into it that when I realized what Erin's nemesis had planned for her, I was screaming out loud "No! Noooo!" Good thing I was in the privacy of my home (LOL). I was thrilled when Erin gave that evil witch a taste of her own medicine, etc. Book 4 - Here I Come!
