Overview

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

"A rare sequel that surpasses the original."—Ransom Riggs, New York Times bestselling author of Hollow City

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?

Kirkus Reviews
2014-07-29
In this much-anticipated sequel to Unbreakable (2013), Legion members seek to contain a demon unleashed on an unsuspecting world. Kennedy Waters is guilt-ridden: With the help of Legion members, she assembled the Shift, a tool meant to defeat the demon Andras; instead, it freed him from his centurylong imprisonment to wreak havoc on Earth. Soon, the four Legion members (Alara, Priest, Lukas and Jared) realize that Kennedy's unmarked—not their powerful fifth member. The team ends up relying uneasily on two Illuminati, members of a rival secret society, to help them recapture Andras. The demon's leap into handsome Jared's body complicates matters—extinguishing the demon now means killing Kennedy's heartthrob. Garcia poses new questions (was Kennedy's mother a top Illuminati agent?) to keep readers guessing and invents fresh terrors (Andras' unnerving progress from body to body, his ability to mark and follow souls) that will chill even hard-core horror fans. Occasionally, the self-defeating tone of Kennedy's inner dialogue sounds clichéd (she thinks of herself as "The girl who destroyed the world" and is certain she doesn't "deserve" Jared). But readers captivated by the cinematic, vivid prose and enthralled by Garcia's deft pacing and high-stakes plot are likely to speed past such moments as they figure out (along with Kennedy) her vital role in this unfolding paranormal drama. Fans hungry for more Legion tales will be left waiting breathlessly for Garcia's next installment. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)
School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Starting off 19 days after Unbreakable (Little, Brown, 2013) ended, Kennedy Waters's story continues as she deals with her mother's death and having unknowingly released the demon Andras from bondage. The teen is struggling with the aftereffects of her mistake and the fact that being Unmarked, her connection to the Legion (a group of teens whose charge is to protect the world from demon invasion) is increasingly tenuous. Separated from the Legion and forcibly placed at Winterhaven Academy by her aunt, Kennedy is helplessly aware of the havoc that the loose demon is causing. Unspeakable evil has been unleashed upon the world and young girls (who bare a remarkable resemblance to Kennedy) go missing daily without a trace. When Jared discovers the protagonist's whereabouts, he reunites her with the rest of the group. Kennedy's unmarked status makes it obvious that for mere survival, the missing fifth member of the Legion needs to be found as soon as possible. In their quest to find the mystery member, the teens soon discover just how deep Kennedy's past is entwined in the groups' existence. The story's twists and turns have riveting appeal and will keep readers engaged with a perfect balance of romance, fantasy, adventure, and intrigue. The narrative pace is fast and filled with suspenseful anticipation from the start. The Boston setting allows the author to interweave historic sites and events into the fantastical story line.—Sabrina Carnesi, Crittenden Middle School, Newport News, VA

    4.5 Stars UNMARKED was one of my most anticipated books of 201


    4.5 Stars

    UNMARKED was one of my most anticipated books of 2014!! I was dying to get my hands on an ARC because I couldn't bare to wait any longer. And I was sooo happy after weeks later and 2 begging emails, an copy of UNMARKED arrived on my doorstep, and I was elated!!! I was jumping up and down like an idiot!! But I was a happy idiot, so I didn't care!! I immediately cracked it open, unable to wait any longer...and, oh the joy I found within it's pages!! The scary, terrifying, glorifying, world that I adored!!!

    I love Kami Garcia's writing style, she always sucks me in from the beginning and glues me to the pages. The story is so addicting and satisfying, that I literary wanted to stomp my feet like a little kid, screaming "I want it NOW" when I was done this book. Seriously, it was that amazing!!!

    THE PLOT...

    The world has become a living nightmare...your worst fears are coming true, people are dying, killing, and torturing others because they have a thirst for blood, a lot of blood.

    Andras, a powerful demon has been set free and wrecking havoc on the world. Killing and controlling anyone he pleases and turning their world into hells playground, and he's just getting started...

    Kennedy is the one who set Andras free from his eternal prison. She is the one who is responsible for all the lives that have and will be lost at the hands of the vengeful demon, but she vows to stop him, or die trying!

    Kennedy has finally been reunited with the other members of the Legion. Well not the other members, because she's not even sure if she's really even a member of the Legion or not, because she is still unmarked. But Kennedy can't bare the thought to leave. She knows it's not where she belongs, but her heart is pulling her to the only place she ever felt she really belonged, and that's in Jared's arms. Jared, one of the twins who saved her life on more then one occasion from a paranormal being, and the other members of the Legion have become her only family. Since her mother was murdered by a vengeful spirit, and her father walked out on her when she was young, Kennedy has felt alone, until now. So when Jared finds her after their separation, she's ready to get back with the Legion and undo the mess she created that horrible night she unleashed hell upon earth. But that's only "IF" it can even be undone...

    As the members of the Legion race against time to find the demon wrecking havoc all over the states, they come face to face with an enemy organization called Illuminati. But what information they bring and secrets they hold, could very well change everything the Legion once thought.

    But time is running out as the demons start multiplying, and the deaths become more frequent. The Legion and the Illuminati realize they will have to put aside their differences and work together if they're going to have any chance at finding and destroying the demons once and for all. But when a surprise visit from someone in the groups past surface, and someone else in the group in grave danger, they realize they might just of ran out of time...for everyone!!

    THE LEGION is definitely a series I highly recommend! I think fans of supernatural and paranormal books will find this one just as addicting and satisfying as I did!! Even if you're not a big fan of paranormal books, I recommend you still give it a try, because it's not that dark, bloody, gory type read, so you might find yourself enjoying it!!

    Overall, UNMARKED was a great second book with twist and turns that satisfied, enough action and drama that kept me entertained, and a continued romance that I loved from the first book!! I will be counting down the days until book #3 is in my happy little hands!!

    NOTE: I received an ARC for reviewing purposes. All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way!!

    UNMARKED is the second book in this series about spirit-hunting

    UNMARKED is the second book in this series about spirit-hunting teens who are trying to protect Earth from the demon Andras. In book one, UNBREAKABLE, they were right on the cusp of killing Andras--when, unfortunately, they set it free. Yeah. And he's been wreaking havoc and killing people for the last several weeks.

    Okay, so, where UNBREAKABLE left off, the MC, Kennedy had been injured in her escape from the scene when Andras came through to the earthly plane. She and four other teens--Jared, Lukas, Alara and Priest--had banded together because each believed the other part of a mystical Legion of the Black Dove sect. Jared and Lukas are twin brothers who sought the other members out based on documents their father had left behind. Turns out, assembling those documents had actually led Andras to each Legion member, and killed them, which is how Jared and Lukas lost their father and uncle, and Alara lost her grandma, and Priest lost his grandfather, and Kennedy lost her mother--all in one single night. The listing of their names...and it's Jared's biggest secret shame--he wrote the list.

    Kennedy, for her part is despondent. She thought she'd become a Legion member when she exorcised her first ghost, but that didn't happen--unlike all the other Legion members, Kennedy didn't receive her Mark, an insignia handed down to the next Chosen in a family. Unmarked, she recognizes her folly--she was never meant to join them, and she feels utterly alone now that her mother is dead. Her father disappeared years ago, and her aunt has just dumped her into a reform school.

    Haunted by news reports of atrocities no one can explain and gruesome nightmares, both courtesy of Andras, Kennedy recognizes that each day a girl who closely resembles her goes missing. Is Andras hunting her? It seems so, which is why she runs the second Jared and the rest of the Legion turn up at her school. Safety in numbers even if she isn't one of them.

    But their news, of her missing, distant aunt, gets her back on board. The hunt is on for the fifth Legion member, and now it's about fixing the mess she made. Of course, this ghost/demon story is fraught with death and destruction. Kennedy's poised to lose the only people she can trust, and gain some very unsettling allies when the Illuminati come to call.

    Andras is on the prowl, and it's clear he wants to possess Kennedy. She's got some skills in the demon wrangling arena, thanks to her training in UNBREAKABLE, but Andras is too powerful for her. Plus, nobody told her he could jump from person to person like a vengeful louse. No, possession seems a breath away, when Andras targets the one person left whom Kennedy loves in this world.

    The revelation of Jared's mistake sends shock waves through the Legion, just as they need to gather closer--to save one of their own, but Kennedy is determined to fix all her mistakes, and she's got the brains to get the job done right.

    Well, I assume so. Because it looks like the final resolution is gonna happen NEXT BOOK. Stay tuned, peeps!

    As far the book goes, it was an interesting read. It gets a bit explain-y, trying to link all the moving parts together. Turns out Kennedy's mom wasn't such a great gal, and her dad left for (albeit crappy) reasons connected to Legion and the Illuminati--organizations which have for centuries been diametrically opposed as this book purports. It felt a bit deus ex machina when the Illuminati swept in to clean up the Andras mess, but there was still lots of time in the story. Time to go on and explain. In the end, we're left with a demon in chains, another on the loose, with Legion members splitting and Illuminati men hunting. Oh, and a reconnection of the parental-kind in the offing. It fell a bit flat for me. I supposed I should have felt tense, but all throughout I knew this story wouldn't end here, so the urgency wasn't as strong as I would have liked.

    It's still a good read. And safe for kids because, instead of kissing and sex, there's killing and horror. It is a perfect Halloween read, however. And, I'm sure I'll get book 3 when it comes out. I received a review copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest review.

    Just Right for this Installment!

    Some heart-clutching romance, demons on the loose, another adversary comes out of the woodwork and the past makes its appearance, all this and poor Kennedy still doesn’t have her mark. But is there a reason, as yet unknown to her? Unmarked by Kami Garcia leaves its own distinctive mark on this series by changing up the action versus the character-driven aspects.
    Kennedy is trying to atone for the suffering and death that has been caused since she let a demon out of what was supposed to be his eternal prison. As Andras’ powers grow, he is becoming nearly invincible and the clock is ticking down to the time he will be able to unleash the wrath of all demons on humanity. Meanwhile another faction has stepped up to thwart the Legion. Are they strong enough to stand together, minus the one remaining “marked” ally they need? As much as she wishes none of this ever crossed her path, Kennedy has matured and is willing to do whatever it takes to stop the madness and chaos. With Jared by her side, she feels wanted and cared for, but will he always be there?

    Kami Garcia has put the perfect edge on this installment of her series, with less over-the-top action, there was time to get to know new characters, and feel their impact on Kennedy, both in the past as well as the present. Have they also given her strength to face the future? Ms. Garcia has given us a new, improved Kennedy, more mature, stronger from within and more willing to do whatever is necessary for her friends. Andras is pure evil, the master of trickery, an while many of the characters held back in the background, their presence was noted and appreciated.

    When I read Unbreakable by author Kami Garcia about a year ago I

    When I read Unbreakable by author Kami Garcia about a year ago I have to admit that I was pretty underwhelmed. It wasn’t as great as her co-written Beautiful Creatures and I did have a hard time getting into the story despite how interested I was in the premise. Understandably, I was a bit worried when it came to reading Unmarked. I can say after having finished the sequel novel that it was surprisingly very good in comparision to the novel that came before it and with that being said I’m looking forward to find out what will happen next after Unmarked.

    Taking place after the events that occurred in Unbreakable,  main character Kennedy Waters is recovering from having released the demon that the Legion has spent centuries trying to keep locked up. As her aunt tries to return her life to its original state, Kennedy is once again pulled into the world of demons and secret societies. This time the stakes are raised when she and the other Legion members delve deep into the secrets behind the Illuminati and attempt to keep the demon that Kennedy released from harming anybody else. Then Kennedy is reunited with the love of her life and discovers family secrets that are best left burried. Unexpectedly the life of somebody she loves most is left hanging in the balance and it’s all up to Kennedy to make the ultimate decision.

    What I liked most about Unmarked was the fact tha tKnenedy’s character has changed so much from who she was in the last book. The girl from Unbreakable was annoying and borderline Mary Sue. The girl who I got in Unmarked felt like an entirely different person. Kennedy made decisions that were make-or-break, she did and saw things in the novel that she wouldn’t have even thought about in the last book. Kennedy’s character growth is definitely what’s finally won me over into being a fan of The Legion series.

    A lot more is happening in Unmarked. There aren’t any chapters that feel like filler and there aren’t any scenes that felt unnecessary. Everything that happens happened for a reason and went to push the plot forward. Every chaper made sense and certain clues were left behind that slowly begin to felsh out the details behind the murders of teenage girls and the reasons behind why they’ve been killed. Not to mention we get to see a bunch of new characters who have taken a class in badassery.

    Of the new characters we get to see, none of them are identical. They’re strong and independent and not afraid to look a demon in the eye and threaten to send them right back to where they came from. With these new characters also comes new information on the Legion and the Illiuminati as well as details on Kennedy’s deceased mother and her deadbeat dad.

    My only real issue with Unmarked and Unbreakable is the writing-style. It’s too simplistic. There are intense scenes that are all just lacking the right amount of details. I found it too hard to get a clear image of just what was happening in the scenes and had to fill in a lot of the empty spaces myself. It took away from the experience and I wish there could have been more for her to build up the world in my imagination.

    I would recommend the Legion series to readers who are looking for a novel that is very much like Supernatural. Any readers who are fans of the paranormal or want a novel that is all about hunting monsters should give the series a shot.

    Unmarked is the sequel to Unbreakable. I waited a whole year for

    Unmarked is the sequel to Unbreakable. I waited a whole year for this sequel so my expectations were a bit high. I loved Unbreakable so much, you can read my review here. It took me by surprise because I am not the biggest fan of paranormal books but I was instantly sold and fell in love. So I was a bit scared of Unmarked not being on the same level as Unbreakable. However, Unmarked was even better. It was so good, I couldn't put it down. This is fast becoming one of my favorite paranormal series for sure.  In Unmarked, the gang is all there, Kennedy, Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared. However we have a new addition, Kennedy's best friend Elle. I love this group's dynamic. Lukas and Jared are twins, Priest is a genius engineer and the youngest, Alara is kick butt, provides the funds, and always appears tough on the exterior, and lastly is Kennedy, our main protagonist who I've grown to like even more in this book. Of course there's Elle and she's Kennedy's cheerleader but also the devil's advocate. In Unmarked, they're dealing with the consequences of what happened in Unbreakable (being vague so not to spoil anyone). There are so many gasp worthy reveals in Unmarked, my head was in a spin. I love everything about Unmarked, from how gripping the plot is, to how logical and understandable every action by this group is made. I loved how they always stuck by each other, and I especially love their friendship. Good characters, plot, and flow are so important in books. Unmarked had all. These characters really hold a close place in my heart and I love them so much. Kami Garcia's writing is a perfect example of an enjoyable prose. The third book is definitely going on my most anticipated sequels of 2015.

    Exciting second installment!

    I received an advance reader edition of this book from Little, Brown and Company via Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    4 Stars

    I was excited to get my hands on this book. I recently read and enjoyed the first in the series, Unbreakable. This book did not disappoint as it lived up my expectations after reading the first book in the series. This book was a fast paced book with lots action, much like the first in the series. I would recommend that this series be read in order because this book picks up right where the first left off and the events of the first book are often discussed.

    This book opens with Kennedy being not only separated from her group of friends, members of the Legion, but also being sent away to school by her aunt. The book gets it title from the fact that Kennedy remains unmarked after killing a spirit which means she is not actually a part of the Legion. She is not only crushed by that knowledge but by the knowledge that her actions have release a strong demon into the world. She tracks the demon by focusing on crime and notes that a string of girls have disappeared - all of which look very much like her.

    Her friends have not forgotten her and she reunited with them after they track her down at school. Her friend, Elle, is with the rest of the group. Together they work to track the demon and find a way to destroy it before it is able to destroy the world. Their journey forces Kennedy to look into her family tree for answers and she realizes that everything may not be exactly as she had thought.

    This book has a lot of twist and turns and is just plain fun to read. The writing flowed and I found myself consuming this story. The love triangle that I found annoying in the first book was gone in this book with Kennedy focused on only one of the boys. I found the characters a bit more likeable in this book than in the first. My only real complaint with this book was that there was no solid resolution. The ending was not abrupt and I am actually okay with the ending but it would have been nice to have seen everything get wrapped up with a nice little bow.

    I would definitely recommend this book to others that enjoy a light paranormal story, especially those that enjoyed this first book in the series. I plan to continue with this series and cannot wait to see what else is in store for Kennedy and her friends.
