You guys! I am soooo unbelievably excited to be a part of The Unbound Blog Tour...you have no idea! I loved The Archived, but to say the same about The Unbound would be an understatement. The Unbound was an awesomely mind-blowing sequel, and it left me craving more from this world and more of these characters. Please give us more, Victoria!!!
Okay, now that my plea is out there, here's what Victoria has for us today on my stop of The Unbound Blog Tour:

Ahhh! I can't wait to listen to all these tracks while re-reading so I can decipher their significance...in some cases, anyway. In others, it's glaringly obvious. =) I can't wait for you all to read this and experience the gut-wrenching, heart-stopping exhilaration for yourselves! And if you haven't read The Archived yet, get on that...you're seriously missing out.
Here's a bit more about the book:
Title: The Unbound
Author: Victoria Schwab
Series: The Archived, book #2
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Publication Date: January 28, 2014
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books. Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.
Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she's struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn't easy -- not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she's really safe.
Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace, and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She's sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she'll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?
With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.
