Tru Van Dye is at loose ends after the death of her father. She knows that she can no longer rely upon his discoveries and runs the risk of being removed from the exclusive intellectual science community of Majj. The only way she can gain a Charter is by making a significant scientific discovery on her own. She has spent many years working under her father’s name and credentials.

Tru’s plan falls into place when she finds a puzzling artifact in her father’s belongings. Compelled both by the need to get her own charter and as a tribute to her father, she decides to investigate this finding. Tru is undeterred when she realizes that she will have to reach far beyond her comfortable and insular society.

Rayce Coburne is a former treasure hunter gone legit. His first project nears completion but suffers from a critical lack of funds. Then Tru contacts him, offering to hire him to find out more about the artifact. While Rayce hates everything about the Majj community, he knows that in order to recognize his dreams, he needs this job. He reluctantly accepts Tru’s offer, vowing to never become close to her.

But, circumstances have a way of eroding the strongest of wills.

Unraveled is a fantastic blend of science fiction and romance. Ms. Barry has written another book that proudly heralds the strength and new vision of this futuristic author. Her world building is mature, strong and thoroughly detailed and provides the perfect backdrop to Tru and Rayce, two wonderfully constructed and dimensional characters. Her storytelling is top notch and had me riveted from the opening page and the chemistry between the characters is palpable.

Unraveled is a fantastic book on many levels and is a must for futuristic and romance fans! MS. Barry has broken out of my ‘must buy’ list and created a category all her own ‘must read sequel now’! Try Unraveled. You won’t be disappointed!.
