A NovelBook - 2013
Erin Radkey remembers all too well what life was like as a mortal--and it's not something she wants to repeat, though there were a lot fewer people trying to kill her before her Change made her one of the Unbounded. Over the centuries the long-lived Unbounded have divided into two groups, the Emporium who craves money and power and will do anything to achieve its ends, including experimenting on its own people, and the Renegades who protect unsuspecting humanity. Now the Renegades are close to discovering a cure that will save many lives, and the mortal husband of Erin's closest friend is first in line. But cures cut into Emporium profits, and their agents will stop at nothing to destroy the research and assassinate anyone who gets in their way. Erin's new abilities are tested as she and fellow Renegades fight against the Emporium in a struggle that soon becomes all too personal and where lines of loyalty are blurred by relationships of the past. Everything is at risk, including the lives of her friends--and the love of Ritter Langton, the Renegade Unbounded who both infuriates and excites her. From the busy streets of Portland to the jungles of Mexico, The Cure is a page-turning urban fantasy that will keep you guessing until the end.
