The heart-pounding sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Unbreakable, by New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures co-author Kami Garcia.

He is here… and he could be anyone.

Kennedy Waters lives in a world where vengeance spirits kill, ghosts keep secrets, and a demon walks among us–a demon she accidentally set free.

Now Kennedy and the other Legion members–Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared–have to hunt him down. As they learn more about the history of the Legion and the Illuminati, Kennedy realizes that the greatest mystery of all does not belong to any secret order, but to her own family. With the clock ticking and the life of someone she loves hanging in the balance, Kennedy has to ask the question she fears most: what is it about her past that has left her Unmarked?

When I read Unbreakable last year I instantly fell in love. This was the first thing I had ever read by Kami Garcia and I was not disappointed. The first book left me with some serious feels and I couldn’t wait for this sequel! Well, life got in the way I ended up waiting a rather long time for it actually. So one day last week I was cruising Audible.Com, trying to decide what to use my monthly credit on, and I found Unmarked. I love to read, but I can’t stress how exciting a good audiobook can be, and this one is amazing! The narrator does a great job keeping you focused and totally engulfed in the story, and the story itself is a perfect sequel.

If you can’t tell, I adore this series. In the second book of The Legion series we find out so much. It’s honestly heartbreaking because you just want to reach into the book and give Kennedy a hug. This poor child has already been through so much, and now it just gets worse. But that makes for a good story of course.

We get introduced to some new characters, who I think are rather exciting, including their new furry Doberman friend ‘Bear’. The thing I found the most interesting from the entire book was (now I’m so sorry for butchering the spelling here, but one of the drawbacks to an audiobook is you can’t see how the weird words/names are spelt) Gabriel’s weapon of choice: a whip made out of demon bones named Azazel. This thing was so cool, terrifying, but really really cool. And Kami does such a great job describing it that I can picture it so clearly in my mind. I hope one day these books are made into film, or tv, and I can see it come to life *added to my life wishlist*.

All in all this was a fantastic continuation to the already fantastic story that is The Legion Series. I can only give it a full five star rating because I loved it no less than that. Not as much romance-y bits as I would’ve liked, but there is good (spoilery) reason for that. So if you enjoyed Unbreakable and you’re kinda on the fence about picking up this sequel, I urge you too. And hey, grab the audiobook if you can, because I enjoyed it so much I plan on getting the first on audio to enjoy it again. Now we just wait for the next book…
