Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-Since Kennedy Waters's father deserted the family a while back, it's just been she and her mother. Now, with her mother's sudden and gruesome death and a determined evil demon out to get her, Kennedy learns that her parents had hidden a secret from her. All alone, and with her home destroyed by the demon, the 17-year-old has no other choice but to fulfill a legacy that she didn't even know about until twins Lucas and Jared Lockhart showed up to rescue her. It seems that Kennedy is next in line to represent her family as a member of the ancient clandestine group called the Legion, which evolved from the Legion of the Black Dove, created to destroy the Illuminati. The original five members accidentally summoned an evil force determined to destroy the Earth, and their descendants have been fighting this demon ever since. Now with all of the present-day adult members ending up dead on the same night, Kennedy, the twins, and two other teens are the new members of the infamous league. Each Legion member has a special gift to use as an advantage in battle, but Kennedy doesn't realize her gift and questions her place in the group. Readers are quickly drawn into the action, from the murder at the beginning to the cliff-hanger at the end. It's the horror aspect more than the fast-paced intrigue, however, that is the book's strong point. The Legion members must travel from one terrifying location to another, and Garcia describes these chilling locations with flawless detail.-Sabrina Carnesi, Crittenden Middle School, Newport News, VAα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

Kennedy’s world is turned upside down when her mother suddenly dies, a poltergeist attacks her, and she is rescued by Lukas and Jared—dashingly handsome twins who claim to be part of a long line of demon fighters called the Legion. According to Lukas and Jared, she is one of them, and before she knows it, Kennedy is swept up in their mission to evade the demonic forces that want them dead and track down parts of a mysterious device that will help them defeat evil once and for all. It gets spookier: the components are all guarded by ghosts haunting grisly murder scenes. The chills are plentiful and spine tingling in this mile-a-minute thriller as they travel from a haunted mansion to an abandoned magic shop, a ramshackle sanitarium, and even a death-row prison. Garcia (Beautiful Creatures, 2009) certainly doesn’t skimp on atmosphere, and the added dramatic love-triangle tension only ups the ante, as does Kennedy’s suspicions that she doesn’t really belong. Readers will anticipate the next installment in this eerie, macabre series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Beautiful Creatures was a smash hit, and the Legion series is destined for a similar fate: the film rights have already been sold. Grades 8-12. --Sarah Hunter

OMG, that was one hell of an adventure! I loved everything about this book! Phew...My mind is still racing with all of the awesomeness that Kami Garcia has brought to the Supernatural book world!

This is the perfect spine-chilling, heart-pounding, ghost hunting, action-packed Paranormal book to read around October. Because let me tell you, there was more then a couple parts that I caught myself sliding further and further under the sheets! Yeah, this book definitely put the scare into me!

I have never read anything from this author so I really didn't know what to expect from her. But I found myself easily falling into this authors writing, and the plot took off after that. I loved her descriptive writing in Unbreakable. There was a lot of pictures and objects that were crucial to the setting, and if the author didn't deliver it the right way, it would just fall apart. But Mrs. Garcia painted such vivid scenes that I literally could picture every description to the T.

The Plot

Have you ever thought you heard whispers, or seen something move that wasn't suppose too, or just felt you weren't alone, when you really were? Well this is the world Kennedy Waters lives in, but all them things are real, and something is watching, waiting, and ready to strike.

Kennedy and four other teenagers are descendants of a group called The Legion. Its made up of a 5 person ghost hunter organization to keep the spirits, dybbuk, demons, and other crazy supernatural being that are not suppose to exist at bay, and eliminate them.

But for Kennedy Waters, she has always lived a fairly normal life, until one day her mother dies of a strange heart attack. After that Kennedy is almost killed by a vengeance spirit!

OH MY GOD! This book is probably my new all-time favorite. I LOVED IT.
The beginning was not even that slow, and about 30 pages in.. BAM.. Welcome to your new life Kennedy!

In "ghost hunting" there is a lot of different concepts like grave jumping, poltergeists and vengance spirits. This book explains all that in a way that is understandable and does not feel forced.

I am not that easily spooked, and a book have never EVER made me scared before. But this one, oh god, this one made me want to keep the lights on because I was afraid that some ghost would kill me in my sleep. I was seriously afraid of reading this book in the dark, because WHAT IF some ghost was with me WHAT IF it wanted to kill me.... I could not sleep....

I can understand why somepeople are not so fond of Kennedy, but when she first meets Priest, Lukas, Jared and Alara, she changes. She becomes another person that is selfish and brave - that is the Kennedy I like.

I love everything paranormal, I really like watching ghost horror movies (grave encounters is probably my favorite one). I love The Da Vinci Code (unlike a lot of people I know) and this contains all of it perfectly somehow.

Downside is that this book ends on a killer cliffhanger! AND the second one doesnt even come out till 2014 - hopefully it comes out in 2014!

I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. I didn't expect too much due to the first couple of chapters. The author Kami Garcia, probably better known for the wildly popular ‘Beautiful Creatures’ series, puts something for everything in her book ‘Unbreakable’ once you get past the introductions. There’s thrill, paranormal intrigue and a sprinkling of romance that’s blended together in this fast-paced book. If you like ‘Supernatural’ you’re going to love this book.

The story begins with our shy, self-conscious and totally relatable heroine Kennedy and an unexpected loss that sends her on a paranormal adventure with four other teenagers, twin brothers Jared and Lukas, kid genius Priest and edgy bad girl Alara. Before she knows it she’s part of their hodgepodge team with strange and unusual gifts. The band is swept across the North East hunting down spirits and avoiding demons at every turn.

I did at times find it pretty dull, I won’t lie. The format seemed like a rollercoaster. One second we’re fighting dybuk boxes and the next we’re in a small town convenient store discussing 100 gran bars. Kennedy also had some serious issues in the beginning that aren't entirely reconciled by the end of the book. But she, like the four others, go through some awesome character development in a relatively short amount of time.

I really recommend this book, if not to own than to rent. It was a quick read with a nice plot, even if it wasn't as developed as it could be. But be careful, this book ends with a huge cliffhanger!

A Ghost hunting thriller with a dash of romance!!

The writing flows nicely and right from the first sentence I was hooked. The pacing was also great. It wasn't too slow and always had you wondering what would happen next. Plenty of mysteries are wrapped up in this book as well. I really enjoyed learning about the paranormal world with Kennedy.

Kennedy is just your average girl who never even believed in ghosts until the night one killed her mother. Now she is thrust into the world of the paranormal where deadly secretes abound. However she is not alone. Kennedy meets some other ghost hunters that she must learn to work with. At first some aren't quite as welcoming as she'd hoped, but they soon become fast friends, all working together for a common cause.

Alara was one of my favorite secondary characters. She is a kick butt heroine who takes no prisoners. At first she seems a bit cold, but she has a big heart and once she gets to know you she is one of the best friends you could ever have.

The love interests Lucas and Jared were so much fun. I loved their interactions Kennedy. Lucas was the fun and easy going type who always knew how to make you feel better. Jared was a bit more moody, but when you really needed him he was always there. He takes too much blame upon himself which contributes to his somber mood, but on the occasion that he does open up he can light up a room.

If you are looking for a great paranormal romance with filled with intrigue, ghost hunting, and deadly secrets than look no further than "Unbreakable"!
