    In retrospect, Untold is an extraordinarily boring novel. Unspoken was a novel I loved inexplicably; just because it was whimsical and amusing and magical and I could. With Untold, however, my feelings are far more mixed. On one hand, this novel delivered exactly what I wanted it to, but on another, I found myself left with an intangible wanting. What Brennan has always excelled at - ever since the release of her debut - is capturing the personal...

    Actual rating: 3.5I usually hate love triangles, I usually hate the romance. This book is different in that I actually enjoyed both. I felt the love triangle was complex enough, the romance and relationships between the characters were beautifully, realistically portrayed. This book had a tremendous amount of humor. It had an amazing, strong main character. The side characters were compelling; funny, flawed, loveable. It portrayed a lesbian chara...

    "[...] hell is a place where the souls of the damned can still see heaven."Once again, Sarah doesn't fail to impress and amaze me. Damn you for messing with my feels like this, Sarah. Damn you.In a small sleepy town called Sorry-in-the-Vale (with symbolic locations named Shadownchurch Lane, Pleasant Street, Sorrier River, Hope Field, Really Depressed Quarry, and more), things are not going as planned. After finding out that an evil sorcerer with ...

    Oh Sarah, I see what you're doing. Give us an amazing book, leave us on a terrible cliffhanger, make us wait until June September.I'm on to you lady.Official Review now that the above waiting madness is over:I loved Unspoken beyond all reason. My review is nothing but gushing sentences and stress. The cliffhanger at the end was a doozey and I don’t know how I managed to wait over a year to read Untold, but I did, and now I’m tasked with scoop...

    After that intense ending to book one, I had to dive right back into this world and see what the heck was going to happen! The sorcerer concept is really cool along with the Gothicky vibe which is my favorite!Oh my, I wanted to shake Kami and Jared so many times! But no matter how many shakes I wanted to give them, I loved them so much. Kami just has the coolest and quirkiest personality while Jared is a bit harder but when humorous things slip o...

    Hurls iPad across the room. Muffles a scream of frustration. Sighs and goes over to retrieve said iPad.I absolutely hated this book (no, not really). It made me want to pull my hair out (seriously, I have bald spots). But for the "lovely, lovely readers who suffered over the ending of Unspoken," it's definitely a must-read. Yeah, I read your acknowledgement at the end of this book. I am on to you, lady!!! >:(In Brennan's defense, my rating probab...

    Arc won by Erin "the cat" :)For those of you who have already been introduced to the gripping plot that takes place on "SORRY-IN-THE-VALE" with Unspoken, you'll be pleased to know, that this story is even better than the first..IT IS!!! IT REALLY IS!! YAY!!*a little fangirl moment*The characters have depth, they're interesting *a little insane sometimes, yes, but who cares?*, and quirky!! In fact, there's quirkiness to be given Arc won by Er...

    SpoilersA somewhat entertaining read. There were a lot of parts that dragged but the main issue I had with Untold was that there was too much ridiculous teen drama, and not enough actual storyline. -The characters were a bit of a mixed bag. I absolutely loathed Jared and Holly, they were fucking awful… Kami, Angela, and Rusty on the other hand were more or less decent enough. -One thing that really irritated me was that most of the teen drama w...

    I still dont know if i should/should not write a review for this... i am not in the mood for it, but overall it was okayish, and not as good as the first book sadly... It's one of those bridge books which are there to be a stepping stone for the last one -_-' But overall i love the idea for this series and i love Kami and Jared was so-so in this book (he had done some things which pissed me off sadly)... There is also nasty cliffhanger at the end...

    Untold, the second book in the Lynburn trilogy, was mainly character development, teen angst, and set up for book three. The only aspect that saved this book from being complete second book filler was the development of the myths surrounding the Lynburn family. Thankfully we got more world building and more background on the town and the magic it provokes.Our main characters, Kami and Jared, had a telepathic connection that was broken at the end ...

    Sit down. I have a lot to say...There have been much debate over Sarah Rees Brennan's second installment in her Lynburn Legacy trilogy. It had been so hyped up it almost jinxed itself. Untold has received giddy praise and somber criticism. So, which is it? Well, it's kind of both.Untold tells the aftermath of Kami and Co. after having discovered that it was Rob Lynburn who had been doing the massacring around not-so-sleepy-town Sorry-in-the-Vale....

     First of all I should say the author was incredibly kind to send me this book - more accurately, my cat won this book for me, but that's a long story involving scratches, and forcing pets to wear little wire-framed spectacles. The fact I was sent this book by the author does not affect, in any way, my review.What does affect it, is that I've been following Sarah Rees Brennan's writing since way back when, and she has never, ever, disappointed ...

    Actual Rating 3.5I have to say, I wasn't nearly as disappointed by this follow-up as I thought I would be but at the same time, it wasn't as awesome as Unspoken. For starters, Kami makes me feel a little iffy to be honest. I like her but at the same time, I really want to shake her.Also the romance. Seriously? WHAT IS UP with Kami constantly thinking she isn't nearly as attractive as any of her friends and then you see that three guys are vying f...

    'She was feeling uncharitable in every direction.'WHAT DO YOU MEAN THAT'S HOW THE BOOK ENDS PT. 2?YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID, BRENNAN. HONESTLY, WHO HURT YOUAnother list of things I'd like to note because this is the only way:- 160 highlights, my love for this OTP going strong- I now find scarecrows very creepy thanks a lot for that, book- KAMI IS GOALS, WELL AND TRULY- 'Men,' she said.

    A Fabulous Follow UpAfter 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 Lynbu...

    "I can never describe the value you have to me, because all the words for value suggest that you belong to me, and you don't." Once again I've found myself in a state where I think every problem can be overcome with witty comments, as can only happen after reading one of Brennan's books. Almost every issue had a silver lining that came in the form of sassy remarks to lighten the mood... up until about 90% of the way in and it was like, BANG no si...

    I had really mixed feelings about Book 1 (Unspoken) in this series because I liked the concept. Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy little town created so that sorcerers would have a safe place to draw power from the natural world and, in theory, have positive relationships with mundanes who could form pairings with them to serve as sources for more power in return for magical help and protection. And of course, eventually Voldemort (aka Rob Lynburn) c...

    2.5 Stars I was so excited to read Untold. Unspoken left a huge impression on me and It is great in the sense of it-is-so-addicting-i-gotta-have-book-two-now.Untold follow up right after everyone’s near death experience & Rob’s rebellion. The war is coming and everyone is preparing for the terrible outcome and with Kami & Jared’s broken link, everything is bound to be more perilous.When I started reading Untold, I hoped for a plausible and ...

    See more of my reviews at We Live and Breathe BooksI read Unspoken, the first book in the Lynburn Legacy series, earlier this year. With the cliffhanger ending of that book (grrr…), I was anxiously awaiting the release of the second book. Unfortunately, college happened and I found myself unable to read Untold until now. I really loved Unspoken and Untold did not disappoint.It’s hard to talk about Untold without having any spoilers for the fi...

    4.5 solid starsI really enjoyed Unspoken, but I really, inexplicably loved this one. The keyword: Angst. Oh, but don't worry, it's well worth it. The characters: the piece de resistance of this series. I mean, they are simply fantastic!• Kami: she confirmed she is a strong, although utterly atypical heroine. I love her.“She had worried that she would break if her heart broke, but she wasn't broken. she had lost everything, but she was not l...

    At this point, a bajillion books/school assignments/a few months after reading Untold, I'm not up for writing a review on the finer plot/character/whathaveyou points. I'm really really not. It actually feels like I need to re-read it and that makes me feel kinda pathetic, not that I'm objecting to a re-read. But I must say that the first time reading this will forever be the best time. Because of being stuck in a ridiculously cramped and loud min...
