The Reckoning by Teyla Branton Blog Tour (Unbound Series)


The Reckoning
The Reckoning
Only One Can Survive The Reckoning
Erin Radkey has always known the day would come when she would have to personally confront the Triad leader of the power-hungry Emporium. But she never thought it would be with a snake in her head that feeds on her energy. Or that she’d be in the company of an uncertain ally who might turn on her at any moment.
The stakes are high as new intel uncovers a startling Emporium plot that will catapult the entire world into war. Erin is determined to save not only the mortals but also her friends—even if it means sacrificing herself and her newfound love for Ritter Langton.
Ritter is just as determined to save Erin and prevent what would usher in the most bloody century the world has ever known, but even he might not recognize the person she becomes.
Every day the enemy grows stronger. There will be no second chance.

His lips found mine once more. I could feel exactly how he wanted to touch me, protect me, and make me laugh. His emotion filled me so full, there was no room for words. He groaned softly, lifting his lips from mine to say, “Lately, I always know what you’re feeling, even when you’re not sending it to me. Is this what you experience with others all the time?”
“Yeah. Kind of. With those who don’t block. Though I’m trying not to use my ability at the moment.” I shivered when I thought about Delia and what had just happened to me. How much time had passed since I’d touched the blue light?
His arms tightened around me. “Do you want me to come back for you later?”
“No, I want to come. Let’s go see what Habid has to say.”
Before I could twist free, he stilled, his eyes catching mine in the darkness. He brushed his lips against my cheek before he found my mouth, breathing me in for a long moment. Then he pulled back to search my eyes. “I know you’re afraid.”
I blinked at that, but before I could deny it, he squeezed my waist. “I feel it too, whenever I think of losing you, but then I remember one very important thing.” He paused as his thoughts spread through our connection, and I could see that he felt my determination every bit as much as my fear. I was scared, yes, but what we had together also made me courageous. That was what he remembered. He kissed me again, slower this time. The comfort he desperately wanted to give me ran through my body. This time when he pulled away, his touch lingered long after his lips left mine.
“You’re stronger than Delia is,” he said. “Don’t ever forget that.”

My Review:
The Change (Unbounded, #1)  by Teyla Branton Published 2013
One of the most original stories I have read in a long time. The story started out fast pasted and I thought it would slow down and bore me in order to build the world, but that was not the case the story flowed well and kept me hooked. I enjoyed the immortal characters, plot, and the world.
My Rating:

 The Cure (Unbounded, #2) by Teyla Branton Published 2013
More action and drama then the first book, which made it better! The continues world building in this book was entertaining and was able to keep the pace going at a lively speed. The best part was the character and relationship development in this book which feels like it will lead to a whirlwind love twist.
My Rating:

 The Escape (Unbounded, #3) by Teyla Branton Published 2013
The plot was enticing growing steadily until the main characters plot issue was resolved over the entire book instead of instantly and so easily resolved, which I prefer compared to other fantasy novels. The main character Erin love story develops in this one while a non-stop action pack story line unfolds keeping you hooked!
My Rating:

 The Reckoning (Unbounded, #4) by Teyla Branton Published 2014
HAVE YOU BOUGHT THESE BOOKS YET?! If not you should I mean OMGK(OH MY GOOD KNEE) they just keep getting better and better. Erin's love life is about to full fill readers hopes with an epic dose of romance and then the plot thickens. Evil plots of terrorism make this book a nonstop nail biting read that will not leave you disappointed. The characters had more depth than the first book and each had a purpose to the story line. I loved the chemistry between the two primary characters and it was written so well without resorting to graphic sex. I also loved the author's detail throughout but especially when it came to Erin and being in her mind.
My Rating:

Praise for The Reckoning:
I just loved the whole Saga! Well-written, completely addictive, keeps you on the edge, wanting to know what comes next! I really think the author should consider a movie or a TV series for the whole four books! For not being a SF fan, I just can say that this was AWESOME!
The fourth instalment in the Unbounded series definitely lives up to the action packed books preceding it. I love the strength of Erin’s character, and the novel made for compelling reading.
The Unbounded world is a fascinating place to visit! I would recommend this series to anyone, women, men, young adults. Not overly complicated yet the author weaves an amazing tail. I can hardly wait to see what is next for the Unbounded!

teylaAuthor Teyla Rachel Branton
Teyla Rachel 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, including a two-year-old, 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. Grabbing any snatch of free time from her hectic life, Teyla writes novels, often with a child on her lap. She warns her children that if they don’t behave, they just might find themselves in her next book! 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.) A sign on her office door reads: DANGER. WRITER AT WORK. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. She loves writing fiction and traveling, and she hopes to write and travel a lot more. She also loves shooting guns, martial arts, and belly dancing. She has worked in the publishing business for over twenty years.
