It's time to choose sides....
On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.
But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?
A darkly humorous take on Gothic romance, Sarah Rees Brennan's Lynburn Legacy weaves together the tale of a heroine desperate to protect those she loves, two boys hoping to be saved, and the magical forces that will shape their destiny.

My Review of Untold
Kami Glass is one of my favorite young adult characters and Unspoken a definite favorite also. When I started Untold, I knew it was going to surpass Unspoken, and boy did it. There is more danger and evil lurking in Untold. While most citizens of Sorry-in-the-Vale chose to ignore or hide, Kami and her group of friends chose to plan and fight back. 

Kami is highly intelligent and a very though journalist. She is really like a modern day Nancy Drew, if Nancy Drew had to fight evil sorcerers to save her town. Kami’s sense of humor and her comedic timing made me laugh so many times. In fact, all of Kami’s friends can be quite hilarious. This is the best part even in the darkest of time; one of the group cracks a joke and releases some of the tension. 

I will have to say this one ends on quite a bit of a cliffhanger. With certain things up in the air and even more danger on the way, Unmade is probably going to be mind-blowing. I am sad to see the Lynburn Legacy series comes to an end. I could always use more Kami in my life. I just hope some of the unanswered questions finally get answers. 

Sarah Rees Brennan has created such a powerful but still funny series. If you have ever been a fan of mysteries with a paranormal twist, this series and Untold are the books for you. I love this series and I think Untold outdoes Unspoken. Just as I am sure, Unmade is going to outdo Untold.
