About this ebook

No Second Chances. Death, Life, or Love—Unbounded Always Play for Keeps.

There are only two ways to kill Unbounded, and fire isn’t one of them—as law school dropout Erin Radkey learns the hard way. By fluke of a recessive gene, she has become Unbounded, a nearly immortal being with paranormal abilities.

Erin’s Change separates her from her loved ones and alters everything she believes to be true. A week earlier she was considering a marriage proposal; now she contemplates the best way to stay alive. Caught in a battle between two Unbounded groups, the Emporium and the Renegades, she is also hunted by a secret mortal society sworn to eradicate the Unbounded gene.

As Erin plunges into this dangerous new life, she must carve out her own place in the madness, protect her mortal family, and decide which group she should join. Her unique ability is vital to both groups in the race to secure an identification software that spells death for all Unbounded—or enslavement for the entire mortal world. Some will stop at nothing to use Erin as one more pawn in a battle that has spanned centuries. Erin’s undeniable attraction to Ritter Langton, whose family was massacred by opposing Unbounded two hundred and forty years ago, complicates her choices. There are no second chances. Death, life, or love—Unbounded always play for keeps.

Non-stop action, terrifying consequences, and powerful romance make The Change an exciting addition to the world of romantic urban fantasy.

Praise for the UNBOUNDED series:

"Enough paranoid twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages . . . the author has clearly thought through the nuances of the story's theme and engineered a few surprising plot twists that elevate it . . . above the level of the average thriller." -Publishers Weekly

“Excellent and well written!”

“I recommend reading the entire series”

“Thoroughly enjoyable”

“High action and adventure”

It'd be a lie not to admit that paranormal races such as vampires and zombies hadn't flooded the market, a market already flooded by romance to the point where I suspect there's probably 10 times more paranormal romance being published than there is contemporary romance. However this variation on a tried and very tested race of paranormal beings was both unique and entirely entertaining. Also, if you have at least a partial understanding of genetics then its also less fantasy (or science fiction) and simply outstandingly entertaining fiction. Teyla has definitely entered my must read author list with this novel, and because I've only just come across her by chance, I'm excited now to find out what other reading of hers I can do; the follow up novel a must - The Cure - in fact, I'd simply recommend just buying them together to save your time. Thanks Teyla for an excellent read!

Great start. Believable characters and storylines. People changing sides and secrets keeping things interesting. The idea for some of the characters is a bit bloody/gory. Only 2 issues I saw were how The combat was done and a scene that was never explained. The combat is blurred and states more on the fluid nature of the attacks rather than the action. I'll have to read the other books to see if anything wraps up the loose ends to be sure. Fairly sure it's just as oversight by the author and that they were sent to capture her and kill the people she was with.

I prefer Science Fiction to Fantasy. And I would argue that this book is Science Fiction, NOT Fantasy. It's also great writing. The characterizations are believable and enthralling. The plot twists are wonderful. I'd like to know a lot of the Renegades. My only complaint is that now I'm going to have to dedicate all that time to reading the rest of the series, and then bugging the author for more!

About the author

International bestselling author Teyla Branton grew up avidly reading science fiction and fantasy and watching Star Trek reruns with her large family. They lived on a little farm where she loved to visit the solitary cow and collect (and juggle) the eggs, usually making it back to the house with most of them intact. On that same farm she once owned thirty-three gerbils and eighteen cats, not a good mix, as it turns out. Teyla always had her nose in a book and daydreamed about someday creating her own worlds. She is now married, mostly grown up, and has seven kids, so life at her house can be very interesting (and loud), but writing keeps her sane. She thrives on the energy and daily amusement offered by her children, the semi-ordered chaos giving her a constant source of writing material. She’s been known to wear pajamas all day when working on a deadline and is often distracted enough to burn dinner. (Okay, pretty much 90% of the time.) She loves writing fiction and traveling, and she hopes to write and travel a lot more. She has worked in the publishing business for over twenty-five years.
