Kami has lost the boy she loves, is tied to a boy she does not, and faces an enemy more powerful than ever before. With Jared missing for months and presumed dead, Kami must rely on her new magical link with Ash for the strength to face the evil spreading through her town.

The only reason that makes sense is that the people in this book are idiots with no sense of self prese…moreStraight 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)
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.
The epic conclusion to Kami and Jared’s explosive, tumultuous, s ...more
I loved you and then I hated you. So much.
But now, I've decided to beg..
No? Alright then.
And this is how you wreck a perfectly amazing series.
How to wreck an amazing series: A recipe for Disaster
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.
Add close to none character development, so ...more
The ending was a little weird, but overall a solid ending to the trilogy!!
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 ...more
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 ...more

*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.
Kami has been the perfect sort of main character—she's funny, wrong about things, right about things, but truly grew as a character. Who I need to give a huge clap for is Jared because his growth was immaculate! And Rusty had to have been my favorite side character in this series—I loved him so much!
Without giving spoilers away, I highly recommend this series for an adventure full of fun an ...more
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. Yes, I get that it's a very depressing and horrible time in your lives but the jokes are kil ...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 ...more
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)[*still crying* (hide 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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
The perfect end to an epic series.
What is this.
When is life.
I no can after this.
All my can is used up.
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 ...more
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.

Short and Simple Review
It was hard for me to get into this book. I kept taking breaks from it until, only 40-something pages in, I put it aside for a couple of weeks. I was very tempted to give up on it. I wasn't feeling interested and not really in the mood. I was tired of reading about terrible things and stressing about the characters making terrible decisions. But, I really needed to finish the series, so I picked it back up. I en ...more

"What do you need the ducks for?"
"I´m going to put a whole bunch of them in a giant catapult and launch them over Aurimere," Kami said. "This will create a distraction. My message will be: Look at all the ducks I give.”
