Straight up? No reason at all. Honest to god.
The only reason that makes sense is that the people in this book are idiots with no sense of self preservation. That includes the main characters. Because when magical sorcerers threaten to murder people in your town, smart rational people gtfo. No one in this book did that, i.e. no one in this book has sense.
Or maybe no one owns a car, who knows. *shrugs*(less)

So, how perfect was it that I had The Civil Wars - "Talking In Your Sleep" playing on repeat the entire time I read this? Sigh. Swoon.

SRB did it again.
And I regret nothing.

I waited a year for this book. Clearly, I had high expectations.
This book did not exceed my expectations, but met them. Thoroughly.
Again, I regret nothing.

My emotions are all warped and messy, but I’ll *try* to make this review clean, short, and to the point.

So Ms Brennan, you end on THAT note for Unspoken and we had to wait an excruciating year for Untold. And when we finally get our hands on Untold, you decide to end on THAT note for Untold and now we have to wait ANOTHER year for Unbroken.

I loved you and then I hated you. So much.

But now, I've decided to beg..

No? Alright then.

Leave a love triangle simmering in a tasteless broth. When it looks as if the thing may not have a single reason to exist, turn the power up all over again!

Insert about 20% cringe worthy jokes so that it may help downplay all the emotional drama happening.

The ending was a little weird, but overall a solid ending to the trilogy!!


Ms. Brennan...


I am not happy with that ending of UNTOLD.


You can't just end a book like that and expect us to wait a year. I swear, this series will be the death of me.


So, can you give us a happy ending? Please? That's all I ask.


This was a bit of a mixed bag, I did enjoy it overall but there were a lot of things that I wasn't impressed with - mainly the MC (Kami), her love life, the poor pacing and the rushed ending.

-What's what: Evil Rob and his evil sorcerers have taken over Sorry-in-the-Vale. Naturally, Kami and the Scooby gang try to stop him. Also angst, teen romance, and more angst.

-Kami was such a judgemental, holier than thou, hypocrite. The way she looked down at the people who fought with the bad guys

Reviewers who insist on criticizing Ms. Brennan's work for containing 'too many dumb jokes': I'm sorry, WHAT?

Internet, you and I have not always seen eye to eye, but THIS! To criticize the final novel in a Brennan trilogy as being too laden with silly jokes is like criticizing van Gogh for not having enough ears. You may not like that artist's choice, you might be all like, "G-dawg, put down the razor dude, because first off antibiotics aren't going to even be a thing for like another fifty year

I had high expectations for the final instalment of Brennan’s Lynburn Legacy trilogy after devouring the first two books last autumn. The Lynburn Legacy started out strong with witty, proactive characters, a unique genre mashup, and a wonderfully complicated romantic side-plot. But unfortunately, while I still enjoyed reading Unmade, I was disappointed by the series’ conclusion.

Despite the sleepy English village setting, the Lynburn Legacy series has always felt a little Americanised. I’m usuall

Not going to lie: Unmade had quiteeee a few bumps along the road. In fact, when it comes to the romantic angst in this installment alone, I sortofkindofmaybe definitely wanted to hit my head against a wall. Still, despite the minor hiccups I experienced with this novel, I found it to be an extremely satisfying conclusion to this trilogy. Not nearly as good as Unspoken, a whole lot better than Untold; I really can't complain. Brennan begins this finale with a breakneck pace that she never lets up ...more

So. Finishes Untold.....cries for about 10 minutes...goes on goodreads to check when the next book will come out...cried for 15 minutes. Why, Sarah Rees Brennan, why?!

*Edit, now have read the book.

This was an emotional rollercoaster of epic proportions. I was sobbing one page, then laughing so hard I (actually) fell off my chair the next. A fantastic conclusion to a fantastic series. Adored this.

Disappointed. Pissed. Underwhelmed. What was that ending?!

What is up with all these horrible end-of-trilogy books this year? It's just one after the other and they all suck, frankly. Sad, so very sad.

It started out a bit exciting and somewhat funny. Got a few chuckles and little smiles out of me. Then it started getting the rolling eyes and frustrated sighs, and can we PLEASE JUST MOVE ON FROM THE JOKES.

May 23, 2014 rated it did not like it
But why?!? The No. 1 reason for my rating? The unnecessary use of bad jokes - or rather, the overdoing of it. Now I've known Kami, Rusty and pretty much all of the characters at one time or another to crack a line here or there to lighten the mood or awkward moment. But geez, I felt the whole book was littered with bad jokes on every page. What's worse is that Brennan KNEW, and she would have a character acknowledge it in the text. No, if you're going to do it, go with the whole "Scary Movie" pa ...more
I wanted to love this book, considering my investment in this series, but something was just off the whole way through. I was willing to be kind and give it 3 stars, but then the ending bumped it down another star -- I was tempted to almost go down as far as 1, but you have to really, really mess up to earn my withering scorn like that. Instead, I'm just left with the hefty power of my disappointment. Which also leaves me going: What's wrong with me? Was I just not in the mood for this book? But ...more

This series is one of my absolute favourites. 5-stars across the board. Its just so unique. I really cant get over how unusual it was. Its so dark. And by dark I mean dark. The bad guys in this story are true evil. There is so much blood and death and destruction and pure greed and evil. Yet, at the same time, Kami is simply one of the best, smartest, funniest, and wittiest YA heroines I have ever read. She provides a balance that y

Overall series: ★★★★
Unmade: ★★★ 1/2

Okay, mourning-time is finished. Let’s review this one.

I loved this series and it characters (well, Kami is fantastic, isn’t she?... and her dad and Rusty (view spoiler), too). So when I finally picked up Unmade I had great expectations.

I can’t say I didn’t like it. As the previous instalments, Unmade was a humorous, adventure-packed reading … but… some elements disappointed me a little bit:

- too much angst: angst was the key-word

The Lynburn Legacy is over.

I was actually a little sad to see this end now that I’ve finished Unmade. The series was by no means perfect and had its faults along the way but they didn’t take away from the story or the sensational characters that carry these books, I really enjoyed them.

The conclusion to this series is filled with action, drama, sacrifices, unrequited love and soo many plot twists. I hated the way Untold ended as usual Brennan pro

There was an event in this that made me cry - A LOT. But, otherwise it was fairly unremarkable. Not bad, but didn't blow my socks off for the final book in a trilogy.

The love triangle, that wasn't really a love triangle and the constant on again off again relationship off our protagonist through all three books, really put a dampener on things for me.

Still, an overall enjoyable series.

This is my perfect book - it has everything I could have asked for! Kickass heroine, bad boy with a heart, strong friendships, wicked villain, beautiful writing, reasons to cry, humour and general awesomeness.
The perfect end to an epic series.

First up, let me warn you that it’s impossible to talk about Sarah Rees Brennan’s Unmade without revealing some of what went down in the two previous books of The Lynburn Legacy. Consider yourself warned for spoilers of Unspoken and Untold.

We zoom in on Sorry-in-the-Vale after the cliffhanger of Untold with Jared buried alive in his priest hole and everyone but Kami convinced he’s dead. Repeated forays to the Lynburn evil layer result in rescues, deadly plans, ritual sacrifice, and of course som

Actual Rating 3.5

This would have been a 4 star read had it not been the last book in the series. I kind of just wanted more? I feel like even though these characters have been through so much, they haven't really changed all that much. I would have also liked to see some more knots tied but ah well.

This series will forever be one of my favourites and I just love it more and more every time I read. Thank you Sarah Rees Brennan for writing such great books.
Upping my rating to 5 because who the fuck am I kidding with a 4-star rating anyway

This was a great end to an amazing series. There were parts of this book that were just perfect. These were just parts though, the first spell they did and that twist, the sacrifice scenes, and the crying pool scene.The book as a whole though just didn't seem to grab me as much as the other two did. ...more

Unspoken is one of my all time favorite books. I love the characters and the way Sarah Rees Brennan introduces the reader to the Lynburn family. Unspoken is pure perfection and if you haven’t read it yet I suggest you stop reading this (I don’t know why you’d be reading a review for the 3rd book if you haven’t read the first anyway, but you might’ve come here on accident) and get yourself a copy!

I’ll be the first to admit that Untold wasn’t my favorite, but I was still very excited for Unmade.

I may write an expanded review later, but the short form is, I really enjoyed this book. It wrapped this story up about as well as could be hoped for, with the blend of high stakes and action plus character insight that seems to be Sarah Rees Brennan's trademark. I think her books have a strong flavor which is certainly not to everyone's taste. So as a reader, you'll either really enjoy the prickly banter between her characters, or hate it, without much in between. I personally think the charact

Sarah Rees Brennan has achieved a rare accomplishment...she's written a YA trilogy that doesn't end in a cloud of suck. Though this book isn't without its flaws, often defies logic (why did these fools characters not move?!), Unmade was a compelling read, remained consistent, answered my questions and provided a complete, resolute ending that I could accept. Rees Brennan included all my favorites: witty banter and a sassy, independent and intelligent young heroine, and a good touch of swoon. If ...more
