One of the great perks of being an bookseller, and in particular a bookseller known to be a certain amount of expert to the publisher Reps, is the advance copies!!
Unspoken is a fantabulous story which I highly recommend reading if you haven’t already done so. I was lucky enough to meet Sarah at a Smart Chicks Kick It Event which is why I originally picked up Unspoken and to this day I am so very grateful that she was one of the authors and that that is her book I chose to read. Recently I was able to read Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan. The second story in The Lynburn Legacy. The most amazing thing about is that Untold is that most rare of objects, a follow up story that does not let you down in anyway what’s so ever!!! I know you are thinking “Three exclamation marks. Really?” but yes. I stand behind them. It is really done so well as to deserve three exclamation marks.
Untold picks up where Unspoken has left off with Kami and friends fighting Evil and their own emotional angst. They’ve got to save not only the town but their families as well and that may be more difficult then they originally thought.
Once again Sarah Rees Brennan has produce a story that will engulf you, leave you feeling breathless and wanting to visit Sorry-In-The-Vale over and over again. It will thrill and terrify you. It will make you angry and sad. It will warm your heart and make you believe that chivalry still lives. Even with the constant reminders that Angela and Holly are the most beautiful girls EVER, (what is UP with the constant repetition in books these days?) I long for the next book even though the second isn’t out yet.
I won’t say anything about the actual story so as not to spoil it for others but if you are dying to know what happens with Jared and Kami or Kami and Ash or Rusty or any of the other characters, I can pretty much guarantee that you won’t be disappointed and that it is well worth the wait!!
Pre-order, Get it the day it’s released or in ebook but GET It!

In the little town of Sorry-in -the-Vale Kami Glass is a bit of an outsider. Everyone knows that Kami talks to an imaginary friend and always has. The problem is that at 17 she still talks to that voice in her head. No one knows her, understands her like Jared does. Not even her best friend Angela, one of the most beautiful (and tired) girls in the whole school.
Despite living in Sorry-in-the-Vale her whole life there are things about the town and the people who live there that Kami never knew. The return of the Lynburn’s is about to change all that!
The Lynburn’s have always been both revered and feared for the power they wield and Kami is determined to find out all she can about the family for an issue of the school paper. With some sleuthing and the help of her friends she is sure she can find out who is responsible for terrifying the town. What her mother is hiding. And how she feels about Jared now that she knows he is real and not a figment of her imagination.
Sarah Rees Brennan has written a spectacular modern day Gothic novel full of romance, intrigue and magic. The story flows smoothly from one thrilling event after another. The language and descriptive phrasing is beautifully eloquent. Unspoken is a full course meal that feeds the appetite and staves off the hunger we often feel when we need a great new book to sink our teeth into.
Kami is a determined young lady with a wonderful fashion sense and a great sense of humour. She is the kind of character you can imagine yourself being friends with.
Jared is the boy everyone thinks of as the bad boy. But is he? Is it Kami’s faith in him that will save him or does he need to believe in himself before he can live up to his full potential. And boy does Jared have plenty of potential!
Unspoken is filled with a cast of characters guaranteed to find a place on your favourites list. Kami, Jared, their friends, their families, the townsfolk, even the woods and town themselves, you’ll find yourself revisiting this unforgettably magical world often.
