Book Blurb

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 unique and honest analysis into the human soul in regard to our true potential. The story takes us on an unbridled journey in examining the human view of potential versus God’s perspective. While we have such a hard time believing that we are worth anything after we have failed, God continues to see us as valuable. He reaches out to give us the courage we need in order to turn our lives around to follow Him. Only through God’s steadfast grace can we be confident in our worth through His eyes.

This story burrowed deep beneath my skin and pricked my heart over and over again. It was serious in its tone, merciless in its passion, and above all it was unwavering in its message of hope and love. Unlimited is not a story to be taken lightly. It rings of more truths than one person can absorb in its initial reading. Only upon careful reflection does it become transparent how powerful yet gentle the themes in this book are. It will both devour and envelope you in its arms of strength and compassion. Your heart will not be the same after this journey has run its course.

The amazing and unforgettable characters in Unlimited made this story great. Through them, Davis Bunn succeeds in burning his message into your soul. Each one is essential to the development of the plot, and you will find yourself drawn in by their strength, wisdom, and perseverance. I know that you will come to care for them as much I did.

For anyone who wants to be challenged, I highly recommend Unlimited. This story is not for the faint of heart, but you will never regret that which it will awaken in you. The heart and depth within the pages is astounding - not something you will forget. I hope that you will open your heart to the truth that God will lay at your feet. He desires us to keep moving forward in our walk with Him for when we stop and stand still we begin to wither and fade, so please keep moving.
