Unmade

Unmade is the third book in the YA contemporary supernatural trilogy The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan.

This is a phenomenal, emotional trilogy that you MUST read in order!!! Therefore, feel free to check out my review of the first book Unspoken here and the second book Untold here.

But whatever you do – DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW UNTIL YOU’VE READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS!

Understand?!?

I’m trusting you!!!

An only recently severed psychic link connected Kami and Jared their entire lives – creating a bond that was indescribable to others. Half the time they thought they were crazy – but oh how they relied on it.

When Kami and Jared came face to face in Kami’s small, English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale, the shock of realizing they were both real, flesh-and-blood people nearly tore them apart.

Now, Kami is left heartbroken as Jared is missing – and everyone is telling her he must be dead.

She’s sure she would know if he were dead… wouldn’t she?

During the months of Jared’s disturbing, sudden absence – the power-hungry, blood-thirsty, mad-sorcerer Rob Lynburn has continued to gather followers and cement his place as the master of Sorry-in-the-Vale.

Kami has never easily taken brute force as leadership – especially when they require human sacrifice.

Together with a haberdashery of best buds Angela, Holly, Rusty and her new, reluctant mind connected Lynburn boy Ash – Kami is determined to save her town with the only thing she has…

Truth.

Oh my goodness.

How do I count the ways in which I love Unmade?

Or – rather – the whole Lynburn Legacy trilogy combined?

It would take far too many adjectives, fellow bibliophiles.

Like the prior two books, Unmade is immediately gripping, chilling and addictive. Sarah Rees Brennan – an author I will be on the lookout for more books from – manages to create a heartbreaking, terrifying tale that has characters that light up the pages and spark laugh-out-loud moments of relief.

Kami is a heroine that is smart, unique, hilarious and stylish in the best sort of way – her own! I adore her – and I adore an author that gives me such a fun, brave, awesome character to follow. Not to mention the wonderful supporting cast of colorful personalities that enhances the tale all the more!

This is a stunning, romantic conclusion that I absolutely LOVED!

It was perfect!!!

As I’ve mentioned in prior reviews for this series – this is a love story that is much deeper, darker and meaningful than most that ever are portrayed in YA – or even contemporary adult literature.

Bravo, Sarah!
