Untold By Sarah Rees Brennan


Please let me start off by politely requesting that if you have yet to read Unspoken, the first in The Lynburn Legacy series, you should drop whatever it is you’re doing–even if it be sleeping (though I’m not entirely sure how you “drop” sleep)–and go read it. Seriously, these books are THAT good. Also, if you have yet to read Unspoken you should probably skip over reading the next paragraph, as sequel summaries tend to contain slight spoilers about the end of the first book. And because I’m having trouble actually formulating a summary (because I’m too busy imaging what’s going to happen next, thanks to the GIANT cliffhanger), I’ll post a little something from Goodreads:

“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?”

Among all the OH-MY-GOSH-WHAT-IS-HAPPENING moments, this book is undeniably fraught with the wit of characters and all the clever quips you could possibly need, keeping the story thoroughly entertaining. I found myself going from uncontrollable laughter to not even being able to breathe, fearful that the characters would sense my tension and act out accordingly. Prepare to have ALL YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS ripped out–it’s Sarah’s specialty, after all–5/5 blindingly bright stars 😉
