A Normal Life was Never Their Destiny Protectors is a compilation of three novellas telling the personal stories of characters in the Unbounded series. While these novellas are not necessary to understanding the rest of the series, the stories are not told in the other books, and they give depth and insight to the characters, especially Ava, Chris, and Stella. These books are not from Erin Radkey’s point-of-view, and she only appears briefly in this book. If you prefer to follow only Erin’s story, feel free to skip to The Escape, Book 4 in the Unbounded series. Ava’s Revenge Ava O’Hare just wanted to love her child and live in peace, but a normal life was never her destiny. One stark day in 1745, everything she loved was taken from her, ripped away by the very man who should have protected her. Somehow, miraculously, Ava survived. Now it was time for revenge. Long before Ava O’Hare became the successful leader of a modern-day Renegade cell, she had other battles to fight. If you’ve enjoyed the Unbounded series, you will love this extra peek into the events that shaped Ava’s life and made her a Guardian of Humanity. Please note: Most of Ava’s Revenge takes place hundreds of years in the past. However, the last scene is present day and fits into the >Unbounded timeline just after the end of The Change (Unbounded Book 1). You can read and enjoy any time after that first book. Mortal Brother Pilot Chris Radkey’s only job in the Mexican jungle is to look after the plane while his Unbounded siblings retrieve a desperately needed cure. It was supposed to be easy. Much easier than seeing his wife murdered by an Emporium hit team, leaving behind two motherless children. Chris soon finds himself using every ounce of his Renegade training in a desperate struggle to secure dangerous Emporium captives and to save the life of a friend. His “easy” job has become a nightmare, one he may not survive. But a woman he cares about needs him, and he won’t allow anything to stand in his way. Please note: The events in Mortal Brother take place in the Unbounded timeline simultaneously with The Cure (Unbounded Book 2) and extends several days past that novel. It should be read after The Cure. Set Ablaze In and out. Do the job. Renegade Blaze Vincent has survived years with this motto. Barely. Plucked from death’s door and revived repeatedly with curequick, he’s developed an addiction that threatens to destroy everything he’s worked for. Now the Emporium is buying fields around a tiny Portuguese town, and mortals—Blaze’s countrymen—are dying. Blaze and his partner, Kenna Murray, are determined to unravel their enemies’ intentions before the entire town is lost. But things tend to explode when Blaze is around. Literally. And to save his people, he must be willing to take yet one more step over the edge. Please note: This novella gives a glimpse into Renegade Ritter Langton’s whereabouts when he disappears for two months between The Change (Unbounded Book 1) and The Cure (Unbounded Book 2). However, this story isn’t about him, but about someone very close to him. If you’ve enjoyed the Unbounded series, you will love this extra peek into Ritter’s family. Set Ablaze can be enjoyed at any time after reading the first two books.
