What a let down of a sequel. The first book Unearthed was a fun and interesting read, Sci-Fi Lite and not overly young adult-ish. This book is the opposite and could have just been condensed into a couple chapters, added to the end of the first book. This is very much Young Adult fiction and not very much science fiction. It's a teen action and romance story with a space ship thrown in. Shouldn't even be classified as science fiction. If you're a young adult aficionado, you will probably enjoy t

See that pile of disappointment over there? Yeah, that's me.

I don't know why the authors decided to go this way for this book but it was all so...meh. The first book, Unearthed is really "Indiana Jones in space" with exploring, temples, artifacts, traps etc. This book is "angsty teens go on a trip across Europe because they are The Only Ones Who Can Save Earth™ ". It's a completely different book/theme than the first one.

I'm gonna keep this review short because honestly, I don't have the will t

After the bombshell of the ending of Unearthed, and all the resulting questions, there was no doubt that I was going to read this second and last instalment.

Once more the narrative is divided between Jules and Mia, this time trying to save Earth from the Undying’s invasion. Although I really enjoyed all the puzzles in the first book, as well as our main two protagonists, I felt this novel was better, even with the few obvious aspects. Yes, it is ‘younger’ in tone than Illuminae and not as brilli

Love the cover! Serious sci-fi feels and still on the theme with the previous cover. This is the consistency I need.
Okay, so I tried to find this book on Amazon and Bookdepository but nothing came up. Tried to check Amie's website and it just says this book will be out 2018. Like, I need more concrete news on this!
I literally just finished Unearthed and I need this sequel now! I did not realize it was a duology, but at least I know the story won't drag on.

I actually liked this conclusion to Unearthed better than the first book. Sure the explanations involved a bit of hand-wavium, but the story was pretty good and overall I enjoyed it.

Undying is part two of the Unearthed duology, and finishes the series in epic style.

Yes, this is YA, so there's a certain amount of making googly eyes while the world burns going on. But it's handled better than in many series, and even called out by one of the new characters we get to meet, so I'll forgive it. And definite bonus points for not trying to stretch this into a trilogy.

I did miss the archaeology and the puzzles from the first book - that was a lot of what really ticked my boxes whe

#1) Unearthed ★★★☆☆

Book one was the awesome space archaeology adventure of my dreams, book two is basically a contemporary teenage romance across Europe. THIS IS NOT WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR HOW DO WE GO BACK

This review originally appears on Happy Indulgence Books! Check it out for more reviews.

I really enjoyed the sequel to Unearthed, especially seeing what lies in the fate of Jules and Mia at the end of the last book. It was interesting seeing them come back to Earth and navigate the competing agendas of the Undying and the politics on Earth. There's definitely a lot less romance here, I still liked Jules and Mia together (and also separately) and there was also a sense of urgency like from the fi

Undying is a spectacular sequel.
3.5 stars. I loved this series , but I think the first book was a lot better than its conclusion. It felt like everything went too fast and the conclusion felt simple and rushed . It had a lot of promise with the premise of it all. While I still liked the ending I kind of feel like it could have been so much better! . Oh well , looking forward to what both of its authors come up with in the near future.

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review!
While I still loved Undying, it was just missing a tiny smidgen of the awesomeness that was Unearthed (Massive props to the quick recap at the front of Undying. That was an actual life saver!).

But first, can I just say, that I didn't actually realise it was the conclusion? Or maybe I was just pretending to not notice because I didn't want another series to finish.

I love love love Mia and Jules. They are so well writt

I don't know what it is about this book, but it felt very mediocre. I loved the beginning, but after that it just got repetitive, and extremely predictable.

BTW they recapped the first book at the beginning which was SUCH a good idea. Every sequel should do this!

Update: 26/05
That. Cover. Is. Gorgeous.

At this point, it's just my own fault that I have to wait till 2019. Tbh I should just wait until the whole series is released. I should DEFINITELY not read books right after they are released. It j

Initial Impressions 12/26/18 and review as posted on The Book Addict's Guide 1/4/19: UNEARTHED was one of my favorite books from 2018 so naturally I was dying to read UNDYING! The way UNEARTHED ended was such a killer and I couldn't wait to see what happened next!

UNDYING was quite a solid progression in this series and had some great plot-building and overall concepts that continued building the series, but basically until this review was published, I didn't realize this was the last book and th
Undying is the final book in the Unearthed duology and gives us a chance to find out what happened to Mia and Jules when they were onboard the alien spaceship headed back to earth. They're the only humans alive who know that the ship is a Trojan horse bringing an army of alien invaders with it but they've got no way of letting anyone know what is going on unless they can get off the ship and back on earth soil.

A satisfying conclusion to the Unearthed Duology. The story here picks up right where we left off in Unearthed and it is a fast paced race to the finish line. Mia and Jules are really great characters to read about but as much as I hated the romance in the first book, I loved it in this one. I don't know what happened or why. It seemed to really fit the story. Both Mia and Jules had some really emotional character arcs as well. Even though I did find the ending to be a little anti-climatic (and ...more

Second and final book of Unearthed Duology did not fail me but the first book was the best.
Mia and Jules do solve the puzzles placed by Undying and that leads them to a spaceship. But intervention of IA leads the events to a different direction.But Mia and Jules along with Jules's cousin Neal are determined to save the Earth from Undying.

With good narration, well build characters and world, I had a very good read.

Happy Reading!!!

“Earth is all we have. It’s all any of us have.”

Well, that was a fun ride! Definitely an amazing conclusion to such incredible series!
I’m honestly so glad I decided to pick up this duology because I absolutely LOVED it, and it most certainly became one of my new favorites!

Somewhere along the way this flopped into teen romance pit and with that sugary ending accelerated my visit to dentist by 2 months.

Good but could have been so much better. Gosh, I'm glad this won't be another trilogy.

A perfect sequel! Jules and Mia are such incredible characters (together and apart) and I loved following them on the second half of their journey on earth. I also loved the expanded world building, secondary characters (Neal! The best!), and ultimate explanations for the Undying. This series finale was absolutely everything I wanted it to be.
A HUGE kudos for the "Recap" section at the beginning. Readers are given a quick review of the events from book 1. I really wish all authors/series would do this!

This a decent follow-up, but it wasn't nearly entertaining as the first book. I longed for more space action. I adored Jules and Mia, but it seemed nothing significant happened until the closing chapters. I still adore this writing duo and will pick up their next collaboration.

Not as engaging as Unearthed but still enjoyed it nonetheless. Especially the second half.
Unearthed led listeners on an edge of your seat twisting sci-fi archaeological adventure that left things at a breathtaking cliffhanger for Mia and Jules.

Undying begins with a nice letter from the authors that catches readers up on the world of the duology and where things are at in the story before diving back in.

This is not a good place to summarize details or it will ruin some of the brilliant high points of the first book, Unearthed. I'm going to go vague and stick with impressions and obser

Today is a pretty big release day. I woke up to several new audiobooks and emails notifying me of incoming preorders. Exciting! But how do you pick which one to read first. Some of us have extensive spreadsheets, some of us are mood readers, and some people just want to be reminded. I finished Undying in a day after marathoning the audiobook because I was desperate to know what happens to Jules and Mia. Check out my 5 reasons why Undying is your read this release day!
