Here at UTC, we can be a little old skool. Most of our favourite authors have been around for years and not many new series make it into our auto-buy lists. So, we thought doing these posts would not only help us find new things, but also allow others to find older series that perhaps they haven’t encountered before but which we still hold dear to our heart.
If you love the Hidden Legacy series
…try out the Unbound series!
When BURN FOR ME first came out, eons ago, I remember being so into the book and at the same time I kept feeling like this fit in the same type of book as the Unbound series by Rachel Vincent. This was an already finished series (or at least as finished as it’s going to get, I think) that I previously read years ago and I was beyond pumped that we could dive into another world that had some of the same elements and feel while at the same time being completely original.
First we have the heroines. Nevada in the Hidden Legacy series is an investigator and Liv in BLOOD BOUND (book 1) is a blood tracker. That is one of my favorite things about this series, is the way blood magic is incorporated into the world building. Very cool and something I hadn’t quite seen done like this before. Back to the heroines, they both seem to be looking to solve a mystery that will uncover more lies and secrecy than they thought to get into. That sort of feel goes throughout the 3 books in Unbound.
Then there’s the world building. While we are dealing with two different things, they both have magic in a unique way and they both feature people and/or families who hold a lot of power and may seem a bit like the magical Mafia. The Syndicates in the Unbound series, and the Primes in the Hidden Legacy series. Add to that the heroes in both series are served with a dash of bad that will leave you questioning if they are on the right or wrong side.
I think the big difference is that the Unbound series has a different couple in each installment and can feel a little more like paranormal romance because of that, however that is just a slight difference since the world building is heavily developed and takes quite a bit of focus of the stories, much like the Hidden Legacy.
So what are you waiting for? Jump into something a little different! And at the time of this post, the first book in the Unbound series is only $1.99!
