Book Description

Death, Life, or Love—Unbounded Always Play for Keeps.

There are only two ways to kill Unbounded, and fire isn’t one of them—as law school dropout Erin Radkey learns the hard way. By fluke of a recessive gene, she has become Unbounded, a nearly immortal being with paranormal abilities.

Erin’s Change separates her from her loved ones and alters everything she believes to be true. A week earlier she was considering a marriage proposal; now she contemplates the best way to stay alive. Caught in a battle between two Unbounded groups, the Emporium and the Renegades, she is also hunted by a secret mortal society sworn to eradicate the Unbounded gene.

As Erin plunges into this dangerous new life, she must carve out her own place in the madness, protect her mortal family, and decide which group she should join. Her unique ability is vital to both groups in the race to secure an identification software that spells death for all Unbounded—or enslavement for the entire mortal world. Some will stop at nothing to use Erin as one more pawn in a battle that has spanned centuries. Erin’s undeniable attraction to Ritter Langton, whose family was massacred by opposing Unbounded two hundred and forty years ago, complicates her choices. There are no second chances. Death, life, or love—Unbounded always play for keeps.

Non-stop action, terrifying consequences, and powerful romance make The Change an exciting addition to the world of romantic urban fantasy.

Editorial Reviews


"Enough paranoid twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages . . . the author has clearly thought through the nuances of the story's theme and engineered a few surprising plot twists that elevate it . . . above the level of the average thriller." -Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Teyla 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, inspiration, and daily amusement offered by her children. Grabbing any snatch of free time from her hectic life, Teyla writes novels, often with a child on her lap. She loves guns, martial arts, and belly dancing. Teyla writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction. She also writes romance and romantic suspense under the name Rachel Branton.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book January 23, 2013
By Thunder
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters are well developed and the world building helps the reader further understand the characters motivations. The main character, Erin , is strong female that has some reservations about her new life changes. It is wonderful to have a paranormal story that is not either all romance or action/adventure but has both qualities. I look forward to seeing more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rich & Satisfying Read July 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent book! Well written, no grammer issues, and though there is a lot of action with the ongoing conflict between the three groups, the starring role in this novel is the relationships between people. The author effectively brings out how unexpectedly developing unique abilities impacts the family and the community as well as the individual. The character development impresses me. These fictional people and their relationships are drawn so realistically, I visualize them as I read.
The plot is multifaceted with plenty of discoveries and surprises revealed one by one, from the first chapter through to the last. Plus, there's no gratuitous graphic sex. Graphic sex in a novel is like candy floss: fluffy, showy, colourful, takes up a lot of space, but actually just full of air. This story is more like a ten-course meal: paranormal talents, family, friends, some romance, team work, loss, tremendous challenges, prejudice, altruistic people, and power hungry people--a rich and satisfying novel. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. Bon Appetit!

By SuAnn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a great read! I didn't want it to end and am very much looking forward to the next book. I loved the hints of romance without graphic sex scenes. The plot twists are intriguing. I was in suspense throughout, and really wish the second and third books were out so I could read them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars To live for thousands of years! February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Would you want to live for 1000's of years? Unbounded humans can. This was a very interesting read! Not like vampires but more like regular people but with powers to heal themselves and sometimes others. I will definitely read the next books in this series.
