Book: Untold

Series: The Lynburn Legacy #2
Author: Sarah Rees  Brennan

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.-Goodreads

Review: This book has cemented Kami Glass as one of my favorite YA heroines. She's smart, funny and kept me chuckling throughout the entire book. With her bond to Jared severed, Kami has to learn to believe in herself. She also has to deal with her seemingly perfect family having issues. Let's not forget all the sorcerer drama going on in Sorry-in-the-Vale. Rob Lynburn has rallied most of the sorcerers in town around him and set a deadline for everyone to submit to his power. Kami, never one to back down from a fight, gets her friends together and works on a plan. She does it with determination and spunk.  A big surprise in this book was how much I loved Rusty, Angela's fun loving brother. Angie, Ash, Jared and Holly all annoyed me at times, but the book left off on a big cliffhanger and I can't wait to read the next installment.

Fun series!

Grade: 4/5
