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.

A Fabulous Follow Up

After the devastating cliffhanger of Unspoken I just HAD to start Untold straight away. WARNING: The cliffhanger to Untold is just as bad; seriously recommend having all 3 books before you start this series!

The evil sorcerer Rob Lynburn is back and eager to take over Sorry-in-the-Vale and bring back the old ways of sacrificing people to aid magic. Rob is now recruiting an army of sorcerer’s to overthrow his wife Lilian Lynburn and rule Aurimere Manor. The character’s are the biggest selling point of this series: Kami is as hilarious as ever, Jared as broody, Ash being insecure and Angela coming to terms with being a lesbian. Brennan managed to create a realistic view of being a teenager with different feelings and relationships.

Kami is still her humorous self and had me laughing with some of her best quotes..

“Been chatting much with Jared?"
"We often have special moments where I come into a room and he immediately leaves," Kami said. "I treasure those times.”

The love triangle takes on a whole new level now that Kami and Jared are no longer connected mentally and after the way he was at the end of Unspoken I needed to know how he really felt. The romance is filled with so much angst it’s frustrating but I secretly loved it especially when Jared & Holly do something ridiculously stupid, I was fuming! Annnnd after that silly lapse in judgment I now have to deal with Kami linked to Ash? What is happening!

Brennan’s writing has significantly improved since Unspoken, I was able to follow and enjoy the story. It was slow and a little predictable but still executed wonderfully, I just hoped for a more exciting plot. With that said after that cliffhanger I cannot wait to read Unmade.

  1. THAT CLIFFHANGER. I died. I mean, JARED. My heart is still in pain. I need to read Unmade badly, because I really need to know what happens to Jared! JARED.
    Speaking of which, have you read the two prequels to the series yet? Kami equally as funny in one of them :)

    1. WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT TO US? Seriously, another cliffhanger? JAREDDD! how dare she.. Just when we finally have Kami & Jared together he's taken away :( Fuming!!
      Oh my god nooo I haven't read them, I'll have to find them on Goodreads! Thanksss x

  2. I haven't read the first in the series, but it is good to know that there is a payoff for the cliffhanger. Thank you for your review.
