Publisher's Description

Simon Orwell is a brilliant student whose life has taken a series of wrong turns. At the point of giving up on his dreams, he gets a call from an old professor who has discovered a breakthrough in a device that would create unlimited energy, and he needs Simon's help.

But once he crosses the border, nothing goes as the young man planned. The professor has been killed and Simon is assaulted and nearly killed by members of a powerful drug cartel.

Now he must take refuge in the only place that will help him, a local orphanage. There, Simon meets Harold Finch, the orphanage proprietor who walked away from a lucrative career with NASA and consulting Fortune 500 companies to serve a higher cause.

With Harold's help, Simon sets out on a quest to uncover who killed the professor and why. In due time, he will discover secrets to both the worldchanging device and his own unlimited potential.

    Unlimited is a new Davis Bunn thriller. What if energy could be produced for free and given to the poor so that they would always have heat and light?? This is the research project facing Professor Armando Vasquez of MIT and his research assistant, Simon. They have almost solved the problem, when Simon betrays the professor forcing him to be deported to Mexico. Now, several years later, Simon is on a mission of penance. His life is in shambles and he wants to apologize to the professor. On the professors invitation, Simon is bringing their unfinished machine to Mexico in hopes of getting a grant from the town of Ojinaga to complete the project. When he arrives, he finds that the professor is dead, the town does not want to fund the project, and someone is trying to kill him. He finds refuge in an orphanage among the professors friends as they proceed to sort out this mystery and Simons life.

    This is written in Davis Bunns fast paced style. The reader is hardly able to put it down. Not understanding the science behind the machine, I am not sure about the possibility of such a thing, but it sure made for an exciting story! The characters were also well developed, some you will love others you will loathe.

    I received this from New Galley in exchange for my unbiased opinion.

    This review was written for Unlimited: A Novel - eBook.
    Simon Orwell is a scientific genius and mastermind. Brilliant in his own right, he has come a long way from his humble beginnings and made something of himself. He has risen above his circumstances and made something of him miserable life even when no one expected him to. And he has succeeded against all the odds. But then he makes a mistake. A really big one. It no longer is about him, but the professor that he has betrayed. And the device with unlimited power that could change the life of so many people.

    But as soon as Simon crosses the Mexican border, things start to unravel. The professor is dead, and someone is after Simon's life as well. Hiding in a local orphanage that offers him asylum, Simon meets the director, Harold,who has sacrificed a lucrative career and given his life and resources for children who have no one left in the world. And Simon begins to wonder if his life is ruined forever by his choices. Will he be able to redeem himself and protect his new friends at the orphanage? Or is he doomed to a life haunted by the past that refuses to be forgiven?

    This was a different sort of story for me. I've never read a book of this caliber, or this genre. But it was most certainly a pleasant change of pace. The characters were not as developed as I would have liked, but Bunn compensates with plenty of snippets of their pasts. The story was exciting, fast paced, and laced with just the right amount of danger. But there was also the undercurrents of faith and redemption that made me re-evaluate my own life and the possibility of second chances.

    This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.

    I love reading this author. His words flow and his characters are so real. When someone walks across a dusty compound you can actually see it. My negative was the story was very predictable and it was so easy to see who the bad guy was immediately.

    Simon Orwell has grown accustomed to living in the dust of abandoned dreams. A college dropout from a prestigious university, Simon's life has turned out much like his last great science project - an unfinished mass of potential, set aside, regarded as an impossible failure. Too broken to accomplish that for which it was created. Settling for the mundane, Simon believes he is unworthy and incapable of fulfilling his greatest dream. That of changing the world.

    Summoned to Mexico by his elderly partner on the project that would have literally brought light to those living in darkness, Simon faces the bleakest prospect of a new chance. Perhaps not a chance rejoin the project and rebuild his career as a scientist - that hope has all but faded like the dim light bulbs of the poor Mexican town - but maybe, just maybe, a chance to remedy at least a few of his past wrongs.

    Hope becomes an unreachable goal once again when Simon arrives in the tiny town of Ojinaga to the tragic news that his partner is dead. Natural causes of course. The same natural causes that now stalk Simon as a hunter stalks his prey. Simon is thrown from his unassuming life, thrust into a quest for answers as to who is behind the old professor's death and what clues he left behind for his young protégé.

    Now, taking refuge at a struggling orphanage, Simon must accept the help of some of his late partner's closest friends if he is to find answers. Because maybe, the unthinkable really is possible. Maybe he, like his project, really does have more potential than he thought. Maybe even the ability to light up the world.

    Least favorite parts:

    The book was slightly predictable in a few spots, but overall that did not detract much from its readability.

    Favorite parts:

    Despite his own lack of confidence and vision for himself, Simon is enveloped by unmerited encouragement from the orphanage director (and friend to his deceased partner), Harold Finch. Harold pushes the unmotivated Simon to view his life as something more than what he has made it so far. To set goals. To believe in impossible dreams. Probably my favorite line in the book is when Harold tells him, "Son, that's the power of dreams. If they're not big, if they're not impossible, they're not worth investing your life." (Unlimited, page 177)

    Conclusion:

    At a time when I, like Simon, doubted my potential and the gift God has planted within me, Unlimited glimmered into my reading life with a challenge - "be more." Channel that wasted energy and potential. Believe in the dreams that God has buried in your very soul. Believe in His ability to make the impossible possible. Believe that you are destined to light up the dark.

    I believe this book will challenge you as well. Dare you to defy your doubt, to trust that when you allow God to direct your dreams, the results could be _ unlimited

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from B&H Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.
