Unmarked (The Legion #2) by Kami Garcia


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

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?



My Review:

I was realllly disappointed in this book… I read Unbreakable last year and absolutely LOVED it! But this one? Yeahhh….it fell flat for me.


First of all, the ooey gooey romance between Kennedy and Jared was just way too over the top. They were constantly all over each other and whining about their problems and their relationship. Not to mention, Jared was over-protective and grated on my nerves when he couldn’t let Kennedy take care of herself. I wanted to see more teamwork between them; more grittiness and raw emotions. What I got was a high school prom drama fest.

Another thing that was really annoying in this book was that nothing major really ever happened. All of the scenes seemed to be rushed and there was no real focus on anything super major that was happening. I guess the author tried to make one thing major, but it honestly seemed pretty ridiculous and drawn out. I mean, it took up like half of the book and I was unimpressed.

I guess I just don’t understand the whole point of this book. Everyone was supposed to try to defeat the big scary demon (I forgot his name so let’s call him that) but he didn’t seem all that big or scary to me. I mean, he obviously had powers, but it didn’t seem all that hard to contain him. Don’t worry, I’m really not giving out any spoilers. I remember in the first book he was made into a much bigger deal and my hard was pounding all over the place. In this book, though, I just had a bored expression on my face while flipping through the pages. I was bored. End of story.

I’m not sure if I really want to read the next book when it comes out… I’m really sad that I loved the first book so much and the second book fell flat for me. And, come on, I ranked Jared as one of my top ten book boyfriends of 2013. I don’t even get that now! There was nothing attractive about that boy in this book. It’s like he’s been ruined for me ]=

Overall, I would not recommend this book. I would still recommend the first book in the series since I remember loving that one…but just leave it there. Create the rest of the ending on your own.
