    A question for myself, why the heck haven't I reviewed this yet?

    A question for myself, why the heck haven't I reviewed this yet? Why, that is a very good question Isabel. My only excuse is laziness, the snowpocalypse, and a crazy amount of school work. Does that work for you? No? Me neither. Why was I just having this argument with myself? Well, because this book ROCKED! I loved The Unbound SO much! The first book was good, but The Unbound blew my expectations out of the water! I loved this book and hope that I take the time to write up a full review soon!

    "The Unbound" was even better than the first one! More: character development, mystery and heart-stopping action.
    Add to that Schwab's gorgeous writing and you have a WONDERFUL (understatement) sequel.

    I'm in love with this series, definitely one of my favorites! What a shame that's not as popular as it should be, it's so freaking well done.

    There needs to be a third book. I need more Mac and Wes in my life.

    The 2014 Book to Read!

    I received the first book in the series at comicon and liked it enough to check out the sequel. The sequel is even more enjoyable than the original. The characters are further developed and I truly got a sense of who they are as people.

    The Unbound picks up slightly after the Archived ended, but it quickly updated on what has been happening. Mackenzie Bishop is clearly traumatized by the events of the first book and is struggling to reconcile the different aspects of her life along with the information her Grandpa gave her on the Archive.

    I could not put the book down, it was an exciting adventure to the end. Along with the main character it was hard to tell what was real and what was caused by her trauma. There were twists and turns at every step and I loved the ride.

    One the best things about the Archived Series is the sense of reality in the supernatural. I find that the author does an incredible job of making all of her characters real people. Not stereotypes or carbon cutouts. I also truly enjoy the twists that she puts in to every book she writes. The Unbound is an excellent sequel to the Written. I would have to say that I actually liked it a little more. Which I would imagine is because I knew all the characters better and didn’t have to get into them through exposition. I would also have to say that the end of this book was certainly more interesting and unique than the first. I was really going into with no expectation of really knowing what would happen. I voraciously read through the book and if I’d had more time in one sitting to read it; I probably would have finished it in one sitting. I truly love the world and characters that Victoria Schwab has created here. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.
