Summary

Summary

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

"A rare sequel that surpasses the original."--Ransom Riggs, New York Times bestselling author of Hollow City

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 ?

Booklist Review

Accidentally releasing the powerful demon Andras (in Unbreakable, 2013) leaves Kennedy Waters guilt-ridden, especially as destructive weather, widespread violence, and eerie kidnappings dominate the nightly news surely it's a sign of Andras' evil at work. Even after her friends, especially hunky Jared, rescue her from boarding school, she still can't quite shake the feeling that she deserves all the blame. But her inner struggles quickly take a backseat to their quest to uncover the secret last member of the Legion, who happens to be Kennedy's long-lost relative. In this installment of Garcia's popular series, the teens dig up encoded clues all over the Eastern Seaboard to trace the ancient history of the Legion, and in the process, they learn life-altering truths about Kennedy's past and the source of her gifts. Garcia's cinematic scenes full of timely reveals, terrifying moments of demonic possession, and crackerjack detective work zip on by with a pace that rivals Dan Brown. That, coupled with snarky, mood-lightening teenage interludes, makes this a crowd-pleasing page-turner. Readers new to the series should start with the first installment.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 8 Up-Starting off 19 days after Unbreakable (Little, Brown, 2013) ended, Kennedy Waters's story continues as she deals with her mother's death and having unknowingly released the demon Andras from bondage. The teen is struggling with the aftereffects of her mistake and the fact that being Unmarked, her connection to the Legion (a group of teens whose charge is to protect the world from demon invasion) is increasingly tenuous. Separated from the Legion and forcibly placed at Winterhaven Academy by her aunt, Kennedy is helplessly aware of the havoc that the loose demon is causing. Unspeakable evil has been unleashed upon the world and young girls (who bare a remarkable resemblance to Kennedy) go missing daily without a trace. When Jared discovers the protagonist's whereabouts, he reunites her with the rest of the group. Kennedy's unmarked status makes it obvious that for mere survival, the missing fifth member of the Legion needs to be found as soon as possible. In their quest to find the mystery member, the teens soon discover just how deep Kennedy's past is entwined in the groups' existence. The story's twists and turns have riveting appeal and will keep readers engaged with a perfect balance of romance, fantasy, adventure, and intrigue. The narrative pace is fast and filled with suspenseful anticipation from the start. The Boston setting allows the author to interweave historic sites and events into the fantastical story line.-Sabrina Carnesi, Crittenden Middle School, Newport News, VA (c) Copyright 2014.
