Publisher's Summary

Not bound as a book. Free. Like Unfettered before it, the contributing writers of Unbound were allowed to submit the tales they wished fans of genre to hear - without the constraints of a shackling theme. The result is magical. Twenty-three all-original stories are sure to captivate you - some will move you to tears while others will keep you listening long into the night. The power of Unbound lies in its variety of tales and the voices behind them. If you are a fan of discovering new writers or hearing the works of beloved authors, Unbound is for you.
Return to Landover with Terry Brooks. Go to trial with Harry Dresden and Jim Butcher. Enter the Citadel, and become remade with Rachel Caine. Survive a plague with John Marco and his robot companion, Echo. Be painted among the stars by Mary Robinette Kowal. These tales and the others that comprise the anthology are bound only by how enchanting and enthralling they are.

Really difficult to use with Alexa

What would have made Unbound better?

If there were a way to know what the chapters actually were, without having to skip around, guessing.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Unbound?

The frustration of trying to use the product.


What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

It was fine.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Lots of frustration, trying to use the product with Alexa, then with the amazon.com app. Still haven't gotten it to work.


Any additional comments?

This service needs serious improvement. First day of my free trial has really turned me off from it, completely. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. Much too difficult to use.
