Throughout the books, it is obscurely statef that the point of project Moonlark was to find a way for humans and other species to exist harmoniously. We are at book 8.5 and I still have absolutely no idea how this is supposed to happen!
Shannon Messenger's Unlocked really was just filler plot in my opinion. Yes, we find out Keefe's new ability which is pretty significant, but considering that the entire book is based around this one event, its honestly pretty sad.
We have no face to face Neverseen confrontations, though the Neverseen is included in the book in a roundabout manner.
What I thought was perhaps the worst about Unlocked is the fact that the actual story is only about 200 pages and the book took her an entire year to write!
The only reason I gave this book three stars is because I liked the Keefe perspective. I found it really refreshing and interesting.
Here's a quick summary with no spoilers:
Oralie's cache is opened in the first chapter. Keefe wakes up with a bunch of new weird abilities. And Sophie decides its time to be more offensive (for what? the third time!)
WARNING: for those of you who dont want to waste your money on the book and just read the next one, some spoilers below:
Keefe can use his voice to take away people's emotions and even sometimes do things.
He doesnt talk for most of the book because of this.
Keefe can sense everyone's emotions without touching them.
Keefe is a polygot.
Keefe can also sense untrigged talents.
Rex is talentless and the other two triplets have abilities (no one but Keefe and Dex knows).
Sophie burns down a Neverseen storage facility (act of war)
Kenricks and Fintans caches are recovered.
Keefe runs away to hide from everyone. He's trying to disappear from the world because he can't control his abilities and doesn't want the Neverseen using them.
Maybe I should have read the description better, but I just assumed it was the next book in the series. My daughter had been eagerly awaiting this but was quite disappointed. Not worth the price we paid.
Didn’t like: Fitz, Sophie being mean to Oralie :(
I’d say third best in the series, Lodestar being the second and Legacy is the best.
Edit: oh and I forgot: Didn’t like Alina! That goes without saying though...¯\_(ツ)_/¯
