Unmarked is book #2 in The Legion series by Kami Garcia. I have been on a quest to finish up sequels that have been recently released of series I have started. For some unknown to me reason, I saved this one for last. Well, I could say I saved the best for last because this book was AMAZING! I gave the first book four stars. I really liked it so I’m not sure why I didn’t give it five. But now I’m glad because I saved the five stars for this one!

What, what, what.

I guess I'm desperate to read this book because I have no idea about what's next.

& the fact that Unbreakable was pretty good.

May the black dove always carry you. And the white dove set you free.

It's like running in circles.

Unbreakable is to ghosts and spirits as Unmarked is to demons. Though, there are still ghosts and spirits lurking in this sequel.

Honestly, I still like Unbreakable over Unmarked. In Unbreakable, I was scared and engrossed but in Unmarked I was thrilled and a bit disappointed. I think my problem in this book is that it has been too focused on (view spoiler)
This book is an improvement over its prequel, and that's why I'm giving it 3.8 stars. Ms. Garcia doesn't disappoint when the writing of spooky scenes and suspense is concerned. I also find those characters in her book growing on me as well. Although I have to complain: why would only five teenagers and four adults have been tasked to deal with a very powerful and dangerous demon and his minors trying to open the Gate of Hell? Why shouldn't more manpower to be added to handle such a huge crisis?

Unmarked picks off a few weeks after events of Unbreakable, with Kennedy pining away at her new boarding school for Jared and the rest of her friends, and trying on her own to track the mysterious and trouble events that have been occurring since the events at the prison.

Trouble may be closer than she thinks, however, as mysterious events begin happening at the school - not to mention a rash of disappearances nearby, where all of the victims bear a startling resemblance to Kennedy.

Avendo letteralmente adorato Unbreakable, avevo delle aspettative molto alte per Unmarked, ma per quanto mi riguarda non è stato del tutto all'altezza. Non perché la storia sia brutta, anzi è davvero molto coinvolgente e dal ritmo incalzante, ti tiene incollata alle pagine fino alla fine. Ciò che mi ha infastidita è stato il comportamento di alcuni personaggi. Per carità, le loro reazioni sono normali e più che comprensibili, però mi hanno irritata lo stesso, non posso farci nulla!

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.

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.
Ransom Riggs wasn't kidding - this book really does surpass the original. Especially with its absolutely heartbreaking final third.

I swear, by the time the book ended, that was me. Even though there was no death involved (*cough* I'm still *cough* pissed off *cough* at Margaret Stohl *cough* for killing Ro Costas *cough* and sinking my ship *cough*), it was even sadder than the ending of Idols. It was the closest a non-death sad moment could come to emulating the ending of The Amazing Spider-Man

I knew that the sole reason I enjoyed the first novel was simply chance, because when I read that one, I was kind of in the mood for a lighter and fluffier read, and I kind of predicted that I wouldn't like the second one as much. So, I'm not really surprised, but I will say that I am still pleased enough, because I did end up liking it more than I thought I would. This is by no means an outstanding sequel, let alone an outstanding series in the first place, but it's got something that I sort of ...more

Kennedy Waters would love nothing more than to hide away and pretend she wasn't directly responsible for releasing a horrible demon from his entrapment, but unfortunately, no one will let her - including the other members of Legion and Andras himself, who continually kills girls who resemble Kennedy. The Legion is at least willing to share in the mistake, but Kennedy is stubborn to let go. All they can do moving forward is to figure out why she hasn't gotten her mark, so the Legion seeks out clu ...more

I LOVED Unbreakable. We're talking finished the first read and immediately started it again levels of love. I read that book all the time. So needless to say, my hopes were very high for its sequel, Unmarked. I had it all worked out how I wanted this story to go, but no fucks were given about my unsolicited vision. Everything that happened stressed me out more and more as all my hopes for Kennedy and the Legion were crushed. There were so many LukeIAmYourFatherNoooooooo wtf moments that I actual ...more

I read the first book in this series at least a year ago, but didn't feel like I was missing anything by just diving straight into this book. Kennedy and co still face the same amount of demon troubles, but any kind of plot twist you can imagine if you've read 'Unbreakable' pretty much happens in this book. Actually, I swear everything that's happened in 'Unmarked' happened somewhere in 'The Mortal Instruments' series, so perhaps read those instead if you like the sound of the angels vs. demons ...more

Avevo scoperto Unbreakable per caso, conoscevo per sentito dire l'autrice per la sua altra serie ma non avevo ancora letto nulla di suo. Inizialmente era una duologia, Unmarked doveva essere la conclusione ma è stato deciso di punto in bianco di portare un altro libro tanto per allungare il brodo.

In sostanza la storia non è male, ci troviamo ad affrontare le impresi di alcuni ragazzi che io chiamo Ghostbusters, anche se non lo sono, ma mi piace prenderli in giro. Ma sono quello che sono, cioè m

I have been dying to read this book since I finished book one Unbreakable. I was quite sad when I didn't get pick on NetGalley to read it and then I had my hopes up on winning the book and when I didn't. I just was like I am going to buy the book and add it to my collection even though the price is out of my range.
Then I went to my local library and guess what they had it there! I squealed like a school girl I was so happy that they ordered the books. So anyway on to my review.

At a Glance:
I was so excited when Little Brown (Thank you so much, Faey Bi!) sent me this, that I screamed in excitement. I've been waiting and waiting for this sequel, but let me tell you, it was worth the wait. And I totally agree with Ransom Riggs when he says "A rare sequel that surpasses the original.". I read this book in no-time, I just couldn't put it down.

The action is one of the best things about this series. This book reminded me of the show Supernatural. Amazing. The ghosts. T

So naturally, like any good TV buff, I am addicted to shows that involve incredibly good looking men who like to show their manly strength. If they have to slay a demon or spell one back to hell in a deep intruding voice then all the better. The Legion series is the book version of these such TV shows. To be brutally honest I did not enjoy Unmarked as much as I enjoyed Unbreakable.

But lets start with what I did enjoy. I loved the creativity. My favourite character by far is Priest and his awesom

Picking up where Unbreakable left off, Unmarked ups the action and suspense to a whole new level. Kennedy is stuck between a rock and the devil himself after being responsible for releasing the Big Bad. Her regret for her actions is so great, that she en

Why you should read it: I loved Unbreakable, and the hot twins, and Unmarked was even better than book one. Kennedy, though, is not doing well, especially since she's the one who freed Andras (awful demon) from his prison. She and Legion also come face-to-face with an enemy organization (Illuminati) and the way the "game" is played is changing. Who is the real enemy and who is actively working on the side of good? The setting also has to get a shout-out because Kami really gives readers eerie … ...more

Sin marca es un libro en la linea de sus predecesor, la autora sabe meter el miedo en el cuerpo del lector con muchas de las historias que cuenta y sorprender, con algunas pocas excepciones, con lo que avanzando un poco en la historia y viendo más cosas sobre sus personajes, aun siendo un libro puente en algunos sentidos, también ha sido uno de esos libros que consiguen dejarte con ganas de más y resultan entretenidos.

There are very few sequels that are better than the first book. Right now, only one comes to mind -- before Unmarked, that is.

This book has swoons and laughs and some heartfail and some pretty huge revelations. It all sets up for what has to be an epic showdown in book 3. It was such a roller coaster, I loved every page.

The ending left me speechless and I need book 3 immediately.

Un libro que me ha sorprendido para bien. Lo he devorado, la acción es increíble y la historia no podría ponerse más emocionante. Sin duda los personajes son fantásticos y las nuevas incorporaciones increíbles. Por ahora esta saga sin duda es de mis favoritas. estoy deseando ver con que nos sorprende la autora en el último volumen, si es tan bueno como este sin duda será tremendo.

Even though I disliked the first book, I want to see if Kami Garcia will surprise me given I'm 100% sure (view spoiler)

If she doesn't, then she has learned nothing as a writer from the first series about "big reveals."

Para quem pensava que a aventuras de Kennedy estavam em um beco sem saída, eis que a autora engendra uma saída.

Muito bem escrito, com os dramas pessoais revelados e desavenças que aparecem. Você sente como se estivesse dentro do livro :-)

O final deste segundo livro é em um ponto decisivo da narrativa, deixando o leitor angustiado por saber como terminará a trilogia.

4,5 de 5. Un libro que me ha encantado desde el primer capítulo. Muchísimo mas que el anterior. Creo que sigue una línea mas clara, y mucho mas oscura que en Sin temor, más allá de la simple "busqueda de un fantasma a otro".
