Almost Book Review: Unbound By Georgia Bell

Unbound 
(All Good Things #1) 
By Georgia Bell

After her father dies, Rachel realizes she is scared and stuck. Scared of heights, of cars, of disasters harming the people she loves. Stuck in a life that is getting smaller by the minute. Stuck with a secret she has kept all her life: Someone has been watching over her since birth. 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. And utterly beguiled, Eaden discovers that although Rachel is the key to his death, because of her, he no longer wants to die. And he will do anything to protect her.

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 Almost Review:


* I was provided a free eCopy by the author in exchange of an honest review.

I wouldn't call what I'm about to write up a review pre se, but I couldn't help getting emotionally involved with this novel. I'll admit I couldn't stomach more than half of this novel. I was going absolutely crazy over the heroine's actions and I just need to vent. So the following rating is for the half of the book that I read.

My Rating:

Before you say ANYTHING about this review, please just read what I have to say.

Right off the bat I started this book thinking that it was going to be an awesome read. Why, you ask? Well who doesn't want to read about an immortal who had a girl be born to be the death of him, but then ended up loving her and NOT wanting to die. Crazy, right? 

Well, not so much. The heroine (whose name I can't even recall) had a lonely almost depressive life. It was the same routines everyday. She went to work, said no to going out with friends and some times saw a stranger following her and never said anything to anyone. Normal, right?

It was like she had stolkhome sindrome. She felt 'safe' when she was being stalked. She considered this creeper her 'guardian angel'. May I also mention that this immortal has been following her around since she was a BABY.

After they officially met, she then started to obsess over when she'd see him again. She'd also state that she was in love with him. Really, hun? You haven't even said 3 words to him and your in love with him? More like lust, if you ask me.

At the point where stopped in the story, I didn't even get to know Mr. Immortal (whose name I also forget). From the little I read about him he seemed creepy, secretive and like he was holding a part of him back or something. 

Things I'd Like To Know More About (In This Novel):
* How a Century old being would fall in 'love' with a teenager?
* Why the heroine seemed like she had OCD and kept doing and redoing the same things more then 5 times?
