Publisher's Summary

Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness....
Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she's ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel.
Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn?
From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

Could have been better

The story is told in 1st person. She, Khara, is very one dimensional. Her mantra is if she has to die she is ready. It would be something if she could go down fighting but she can't. She does not even have a sense of humor.

She is the daughter of Aries, who does not know she is alive and would kill her if he knew. Hermes is her guardian and she calls him father. She is the only female child of Aries and has no fighting skills. For some reason she is thrown from the Underworld and arrives in Detroit.

Being a Detroiter, I was offended with it being depicted as a cesspool for supernatural. But I got over that one. It is a supernatural/fantasy novel. The places mentioned are real places in the city which are abandon and perfect for the supernatural to hang out.

The story would be more interesting if it was about the brothers. Her brothers are the "police" of the supernatural beings in Detroit. She becomes an albatross for them to protect. I guess crime is down because for the 8 hours and 17 min they do nothing but keep her alive.

Of course there is the moody male character whom Khara despises right off the bat. Of course that is a recipe for the hate/love romance. Fortunately we are spared that scenario, but we do have those close moments.

The pertinent questions of her situation are never answered. Outside of her sprouting wings and killing 2 people, she adds nothing to the story. After 8 hours and 17 min. you still have no answers to the questions.

I only gave it 3 stars because I liked her brothers and their unique fighting skills. Aries "beds" various types of women to produce kids with unique skill sets. If you are looking for a strong kick ass female, this is not the one.

Very Bad

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The narrator was excellent with good voice characterization. The story had some good ideas that would have been much better developed if there was a co-writer.


What was most disappointing about Amber Lynn Natusch’s story?

The main character was as interesting as a log rotting in a bog. The poor logic and plot development made absolutely no sense. Preposterous character behavior made me frequently wince.


What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

One of the best female narrators with a pleasant presentation.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Unborn?

Almost everything that made no sense. From the main character being brought into danger by her brothers, to every time " I'm not afraid to die" is spoken.


Any additional comments?

UGH!
