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.

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.

My Review:

One word…. Amazing! This book blew me away. There were a couple of rough patches where the pace of the book slowed a little bit but the reader barely notices this as they are so wrapped up in this phenomenal novel. Georgia Bell is a brilliant author who has created a unique story which captivates the reader from beginning to end.  This book did a great job of keeping its reader constantly on their toes.  I didn’t know what to expect from this book but I was pleasantly surprised. Unbound is an emotional rollercoaster which leaves you desperate for more. The author has written a fantastic novel with a great plot which keeps you reading.

Rachel is a quiet girl who is wrapped up in the grief she is suffering. She may a simple life, with a simple job and only a few friends but that is all about to change. When she notices she is being stalked she should be terrified so why does she feel the safest that she has ever felt in her whole life? Eaden is immortal who has been unknowingly been searching for Rachel to end his long existence but what he didn’t expect was to fall desperately in love with her. Now he must choose between ending his long torturous life and finally finding piece or continuing to live a life with the women he loves. When Rachel becomes more valuable than anyone could ever imagine, her life is put in danger and Eaden will stop at nothing to protect her. This book is packed full of raw emotions that will rip the readers heart out. As the reader you will find it extremely easy to become emotionally connected to the characters due to Georgia Bell’s sensational writing. The author has created an original novel which fills a gap in this genre we didn’t even know existed. Although the characters seem more mature in this book it does have a young adult feel to it. The tough decisions the characters had to make during the book and the brilliant ending combined lead to the making of a great book.

On top of her fantastic plot Georgia Bell has also managed to add well developed characters to her novel. You are very quickly able to form a strong bond with the characters within this book. The author allows this to happen because of the brilliant development of her characters. By showing flashbacks of Rachel’s childhood the reader is able to connect and feel the loss she is feeling because of her dads death right along with her. Also by describing little pieces of the characters personalities, by slowly building their characteristics and by showing little quirks throughout the book the reader is able to understand the characters more. The hard choices both Eaden and Rachel had to make during the course of the novel made the reader deeply sympathise with them. Despite the fact these were overall great characters the thing that was most likeable about them was the strong love and connection they felt for each other. The romance was believable throughout the whole book and thoroughly enjoyed it. Eaden would do anything to keep Rachel safe which made him an extremely good leading male. The love they shared during the book was very deep they were both willing to risk everything to save each other and they both instantly knew what the other was thinking. Georgia Bell has allowed the reader to connect with her book through her great characters and the heart breaking conclusion to this novel.

Overall this book was an emotional rollercoaster which had me hooked from the start. The author has written a beautiful book and I can’t wait to see what happens next for these characters. I would highly recommend people read this book as soon as possible.
