Unbound by J.B. Simmons

About the Book:

He must be released for a little while.
But the one who sees doesn't believe.

Elijah Goldsmith has nightmares he needs to ignore. Why would a rich kid from Manhattan dream three straight nights about a dragon and the destruction of St. Peter's Basilica? He's never even been to Rome.

It's bad timing, too. He's graduating soon and applying to be a spy in the International Security Agency. That's where he meets Naomi. She's the kind of girl who makes boys like Elijah want to share their secrets. Were they brought together to learn what his secrets mean? There's more to their sparks than they think.

This is 2066, the year the world ends.

My Thoughts:

If you enjoy fiction about the end of days, then J.B.'s novel will be very satisfying.  I'm not a huge fan of this kind of story, but I did enjoy the first few chapters.

Somewhere around the middle of the book the story fell apart for me.  By the time I finished I had no idea where the author was intending to take me.  Was Naomi a spy, or wasn't she?  Did Charles mean to warn Elijah, or didn't he? 

The worst part?  I didn't care.  People died, and I felt nothing.  Characters got in over their heads, and I just shrugged it off.  I was left feeling disappointed and dissatisfied. 

I appreciate my friends at Believers Trust for a complimentary copy of "Unbound" in exchange for an honest review.  The early chapters were promising, but the book ended up on a down note for me.  But, if you really like this kind of fiction, I'd advise you to take a chance.  It just might be your cup of tea.

It just wasn't mine.  Mildly recommended.

Happy Reading!
