non spoiler review for unbreakable!
Unmarked is the sequel to Unbreakable. I waited a whole year for this sequel so my expectations were a bit high. I loved Unbreakable so much, you can read my review here. It took me by surprise because I am not the biggest fan of paranormal books but I was instantly sold and fell in love. So I was a bit scared of Unmarked not being on the same level as Unbreakable. However, Unmarked was even better. It was so good, I couldn't put it down. This is fast becoming one of my favorite paranormal series for sure.
In Unmarked, the gang is all there, Kennedy, Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared. However we have a new addition, Kennedy's best friend Elle. I love this group's dynamic. Lukas and Jared are twins, Priest is a genius engineer and the youngest, Alara is kick butt, provides the funds, and always appears tough on the exterior, and lastly is Kennedy, our main protagonist who I've grown to like even more in this book. Of course there's Elle and she's Kennedy's cheerleader but also the devil's advocate. In Unmarked, they're dealing with the consequences of what happened in Unbreakable (being vague so not to spoil anyone). There are so many gasp worthy reveals in Unmarked, my head was in a spin.
I love everything about Unmarked, from how gripping the plot is, to how logical and understandable every action by this group is made. I loved how they always stuck by each other, and I especially love their friendship. Good characters, plot, and flow are so important in books. Unmarked had all. These characters really hold a close place in my heart and I love them so much. Kami Garcia's writing is a perfect example of an enjoyable prose. The third book is definitely going on my most anticipated sequels of 2015.
