Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she's struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn't easy -- not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she's really safe.
Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace,and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She's sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she'll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?
With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
