Plot Synopsis:
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. He needs Simon's help.

Upon crossing 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 world-changing device and his own unlimited potential.

Margie's Comments: Another fabulous book from Davis Bunn. Unlimited is the novelization of the screenplay and movie by the same name. I was a little hesitant to read the book at first because so many authors don't do novelizations of screenplays well. But I was immediately drawn into the story by Bunn's proven storytelling skills. The characters are well-drawn. The setting is perfect for the story. I grew up on the Texas border with Mexico with missionary parents, I identified with the setting and the people easily. Much has changed since I left the area, but the people and the basic issues are the same. I found it difficult to put the book down. The action takes place in only a few days, and it is relentless all the way to the surprise ending! An excellent read for anyone who enjoys high-stakes adventure. 

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