I love this series and these characters beyond all reason. A year ago when I read Unspoken, I fell in love. I fell in love with the setting, the dialogue, the characters, honestly I just fell in love with every single aspect of Unspoken. I patiently waited for Untold to be released and then I hurriedly jumped right back into the world of Kami, Jared, Ash, Holly, Angela and Rusty. As soon as I started, I let out a content sigh of relief. It was great to be back.

"It must be nice," Holly said tiredly, "to know exactly what you want."

"Not when you know what you want, and you know you can never have it again," Jared told her.

If you have read Unspoken, or my review for it, then you will know that it had a pretty heavy duty cliffhanger. My heart was left broken into two. And, over the last year Sarah has been releasing little teasers... or should I say evil teasers, to get us ready for Untold's release. We asked for a kissing scene, and she gave us the absolute wrong people kissing... and so it went. It has been a year of torture, and I think Sarah enjoyed making us crazy.

So was the torture worth it? Absolutely. Untold picks up right after Unspoken ended. We now know that magic has returned to Sorry-in-the-Vale, and there is a war for power upon the horizon. There are secrets uncovered and even more tales to be figured out.

"I don't think you're weak," Jared said. "I want to guard you because you are important to me. Because you are -God, this is going to sound so stupid, I can never think of a way to say it -you are precious. I can never think of how to describe the value you have on me, because all the words for value suggest that you belong to me, and you don't."

Kami and Jared. *sigh* How much do I love these two?

I loved the beginning of book 1. It was obviously a paranormal romance, but it was also really funny. By the second half, I was starting to lose interest, but thought maybe the second book would reclaim my interest. It didn't. I ended up skimming because I couldn't maintain enough interest. The ending is horrible. I'm all for cliff hangers, but I now know there's such a thing as taking the cliff hanger too far. Cliffhangers are supposed to make you anxious to read the next book in the series, or make you really think about the characters and their situation. The ending of this one did neither for me. Overall, not very interesting. Bad ending. A little bit of humor. A little bit of romance. If there is a book 3, I won't read it.

I have loved Sarah Rees Brennan's work since the first thing I read by her. I have always found her to be endlessly entertaining, with a light, deft hand displaying a skilled wordsmith who brings every world she writes to life. Her books are humorous and well paced, and her characters very easy to fall in love with. I loved Untold. I think her latest series, filled with secrets and magic, high school reporters and high school slackers, is for those who read the YA genre especially, but also open to a wider audience who wish for a light read about an English valley full of mysteries. The plot is fast paced and and entertaining, and the little twists thrown in enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys YA books, or books about magic, or strong, independent girls and women.

After the heart-wrenching cliffhanger of book 1 Unspoken, I was so eager to read the next book in the series. Kami and Jared's relationship is a major part of the appeal of these books. They have their quirks, they completely understand each other (or at least they did once when there was a link between them) and they both have such strong personalities. It's most fun when they banter back and forth, but there is a lot of angst in this book that meant the sharp, witty humor of the first book is a little dampened. There are still some great comebacks and turns of phrases though - especially from my other favorite character - Rusty.

Although there is a lot at stake in Sorry-in-the-Vale and the main characters are in a lot of danger, the story moves a little too leisurely for most of the book. There is a big focus on Kami and Jared's feelings and whether or not they can overcome what happened in the first book and while it is necessary, I did think it was a little too drawn out sometimes. Considering what actually happens in the book, there is very little advancement to the plot, and much more character development. It's interesting to understand Ash, Holly, Angela and Rusty better, but I wish there was more to the story than just what was going on with these characters' relationships.

Having said all that though, I still enjoyed reading the second installment of The Lynburn Legacy very much, and I find all the revelations about the Lynburns and their practices to be very intriguing. I think there are many more things to learn about them and the world, and there is definitely another very aggravating and soul-hurting cliffhanger in store for you in the second book. The wit and humor, the dangerous reality of the situation Kami and her friends are in, and the appealing simplicity of the good vs. evil in this story makes this a great read, and I am eagerly waiting for the last book in the series!
