A modern, magical twist on the Gothic romance and girl detective genres, the Lynburn Legacy books will appeal to fans of both Beautiful Creatures and the Mortal Instruments series. Reviewers have praised the take-charge heroine and the spellbinding romance.
It’s time to choose sides. . . .
On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy little town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission by killing human sacrifices for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so the town can return to the old ways.
But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers around. The town must make a decision: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love whomever she chooses. But who should that be?
As coauthor with Cassandra Clare of the bestselling Bane Chronicles, Sarah Rees Brennan has mastered the art of the page-turner.

This book was a tensy bit worse than the first one. The plot on this book thickens and things go to a much higher stake, the tension was palpable and it was so hard to put this book down BUT at the same time the characters infuriated me at times. Jared and Kami are so full of angst (which is something that I do not appreciate on my romances) with their I-can't-live-without-each-other but at the same time can't-touch-each-other and can't-accept-love, ugh just make out and have your HEA already I'm tired of waiting! On a more happy side we got a little bit of Holly's POV and I have to say that I loved her even more on this book and wish there was more of her POV's.

I don’t know if it’s the coolest twist of fate or the cruelest that I finished “Untold” the day before Sarah Rees Brennan released the cover, the flap copy, and a sneak peak from “Unmade.” My feelings about the Lynburn Legacy trilogy were already at an all-time high, and getting a preview of the final book only made matters worse. September seems so very far away. “Untold” picked up not long–a month, I think?–after “Unspoken” left off. The mental connection between Kami and Jared has been severed, and both of them are by turns trying and failing to move on from each other. Meanwhile, the town of Sorry-in-the-Vale and Kami’s team of investigators must decide whether to follow Rob Lynburn and his sorcerers, or find a way to stop them. I’m not the slightest bit ashamed to say that I DEVOURED this story. There’s a brief reprieve from the next magical confrontation, but the reason for it felt organic and neither the pacing nor the tension let up for an instant. Every continuation of the major character arcs felt believable, and not like tacked on attempts to give everyone a proper ‘purpose.’ Kami finds herself turning to people she wouldn’t have expected as her familiar support systems crumble around her. And Jared? Let’s just say his motivations and rationality were even murkier–and frustrating as it was, I loved it. Even though the link between them is gone, he and Kami have a hard time forgetting that their bond runs deeper than magic. And I as a reader had a hard time forgetting it too. There were times when I had to stop and clutch this book to my chest just to take it all in. I waltzed it around my living room singing about how all of my feelings were awful. When I reached the final page, I may have let out a horrified, indignant squawk. And I don’t even care! If you’re caught upon this series, here’s hoping the final book doesn’t destroy all of us. If you haven’t started it yet and want to, what are you waiting for?

*Untold is the second book in Rees Brennan's Lynburn Legacy trilogy which begins with Unspoken. As such this review contains major spoilers for book one!* "Let's not front. We all know magic is real." Kami Glass thought she knew everything there was to know about her small English town Sorry-in-the-Vale; she was certain she had her town's story figured out. Then the Lynburns came back, bringing magic with them as well as Jared Lynburn--the boy Kami has known for her entire life as a voice inside her head. Now everything is changing in Sorry-in-the-Vale. Even the boy Kami thought she knew better than anyone. With their link broken, Jared feels farther away than ever and Kami isn't sure how they can ever bridge the new and foreign distance between them. Rob Lynburn is gathering his sorcerers and preparing to make Sorry-in-the-Vale a battleground as he tries to bring the old ways ways back to town when sorcerers ruled and everyone else cowered. Kami has never been much for cowering. Everyone tells Kami that without magic she is helpless and of no use when sorcerers choose to fight. Kami refuses to believe that. Trouble is coming to Sorry-in-the-Vale. Kami intends to do her part in the thick of it in Untold (2013) by Sarah Rees Brennan. Untold is the second book in Rees Brennan's Lynburn Legacy which begins with Unspoken. Untold picks up shortly after the shocking conclusion of Unspoken. Kami and Jared are barely speaking. Sorcerers are choosing sides. Life in Sorry-in-the-Vale has never been messier. Or more dangerous. Rees Brennan once again delivers a refreshing blend of witty humor and chilling moments in this decidedly modern take on Gothic mysteries. Untold expands the world of Sorry-in-the-Vale as Kami uses her journalist know-how to research more about the town's history and the role of the Lynburns therein. Kami's ensemble of friends (and potential love interests) returns in this installment. Everyone is as dimensional and well-written as they were in book one. Third person narration and shifting viewpoints also help to give secondary characters larger storylines and more opportunities for witty banter. Untold is very much building to the conclusion of this series in Unmade and has quite cliffhanger ending as a result. At the same time, Untold also has a contained and generally complete arc for the characters. This books offers a thoughtful exploration of what it means to be dependent on a person versus what it means to have a person on whom you can depend. Rees Brennan artfully explores character relationships, particularly between Kami and Jared, as our intrepid heroes are forced to test their mettle both together and apart throughout the novel. Untold is a story all about choosing who you want at your side and holding on tight. Another excellent installment in a favorite series. Highly recommended.
