Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she’s struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn’t easy — not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she’s really safe.

Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace, and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She’s sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she’ll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?

With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.

Why I’m waiting?


After I finished The Unarchived, I was left wanting more of the prose, the story, the world, and (last but not least) Wesley. And then boom, we get this synopsis and I’m trying not to squeal (because if I start, I won’t stop). We have a totally different setting and a new mystery that threatens Mackenzie’s life. I can’t wait to see how Mackenzie has changed after her summer at the Coronado and what that means for her relationship with the Archive. AHHHHH. I JUST HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS, SO PLEASE ANSWER THEM, THE UNBOUND.

What books are you waiting for?

  1. Well, I sooo plan to read The Archived right before The Unbound releases so yes, I’m freaking excited for it. I’ve only just perused the blurb because I don’t want to anything about the series yet and that makes it all the more exciting! =D

  2. I haven’t read The Archived yet, but it’s been on my TBR for aaaaaages. I planned on reading it before the sequel came out but I didn’t realise it was this soon. :X OOPS!
