    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!Nineteen days have passed since the ending of the first book. Nineteen days of Kennedy wondering if her friends were okay and where they were. Nineteen days of loneliness. Her mother’s sister that has legal guardianship of her has sent her off to a boarding school for at risk girls. But Kennedy is fine with it. She blames herself for everything. It was her that set the demon Andras free wasn’t it?! The world is in turmoil. The weather has gone crazy and girls are disappearing. The crazy thing is that each one of the girls has a strong resemblance to Kennedy. Then a cryptic messages appears on her mirror:“I’m coming for you.”Was this a promise or was it a threat? Jared finally finds out where she is and sneaks into her school to get her. But Kennedy is convinced she should not go with him. She believes everything is her fault and since she still has not received her mark which would make her the fifth missing member of the legion, she is convinced that she does not belong.“I need you,” Jared whispers, “More than I’ve ever needed anything.”So, Kennedy goes with him, reuniting with the four members of the Legion, her friends. Elle has also joined them now. I loved getting to know her a little better. They have located Kennedy’s father’s sister, Faith. An Aunt Kennedy didn’t even know existed. Faith, though, has not had an easy life and is a bit out there we might say. She has the most awesome dog, a Doberman named Bear. This dog is just amazing.Faith is able to give the kids a little more information but mostly leaves them with more questions. Faith’s dreams, though, are like Kennedy’s. She has dreams of what is to come. Kennedy has so many questions. She wants to know why her father left her. But time runs out on them before they are ready. Faith finds a cryptic way to send them a message that sends them on a sort of treasure hunt, leading them to Faith’s journal, leaving Kennedy with a way to finally get to know the Aunt she never knew she had, and hopefully a way to learn how to kill the evil demon she blames herself for setting free.This book was just so amazingly good. Intense does not even describe it! There are so many surprises and revelations. Nothing is what we thought. And there are so many twists and turns. We get some oh so sweet moments between Jared and Kennedy. Even though they are young, these two are truly in love. Along with the sweet moments, though, there are some heartbreaking ones as well.So put on your seatbelt and dive in. You won’t regret it! Kami Garcia, you are a genius. Yes, there is a cliffhanger! Nothing is resolved. We are left totally hanging. So, Ms. Garcia, hurry up and get the next book written. I don’t think I will be able to wait.“Every person has one thing that defines them, A truth they believe in above everything else. You are my truth.”

    I felt not a lot happened in this book. spoiler: (view spoiler)[The group go and look for the fifth living member of the legion who turned out to be the sister of Kennedy's father. She was later killed by the demon but she was living in hiding because a rouge sect of the illuminati was hunting her for over information on her paintings which were of dreams or visions of the future. It turned out Kennedy's mother was a member of this rouge sect known as the order and was spying on the aunts side of the family by getting together with Kennedy's father. It turned out that the order was responsible for a lot of the bad things that had happened to legion members in the past and that the real illuminati had actually taken it upon themselves to rid the world of demons as well. The demon had been gathering strength by possessing different bodies and had finally lodged itself in Jared's body (Kennedy's boyfriend ) it was also revealed that Kennedy had illuminati blood in her because of her mam and not only that. It was also revealed that she was the white dove the one who would free the black doves (legion members) from their fights and duties. After the demon managed to summon another demon into the world the group of legion and illuminati split up one group trying to hunt the new demon while the other stays behind to watch Jared and the demon who were kept under control by a whip turned collar made of demon bones. At the end it was revealed that Kennedy is not only the white dove but she is also the vessel which is a thing capable of trapping and holding a demon so she's the only hope for Jared and the book ends there.(hide spoiler)]To me the last book held more excitement and paranormal intrigue what with diverse range of spirits we met whereas this one was all about planning and teen drama. I mean I get that emotions are running high given all that's going on but couldn't the author have done something to not make it so melodramatic? For me a lot of the disputes felt like little kids squabbling. There are still some revelations which had me intrigued but the characters and lack of drive in the plot stopped me from enjoying this ......... as much as the last one at least.

    What, what, what.What?I guess I'm desperate to read this book because I have no idea about what's next. Nada. Rien.Nothing.& I'm an amateur theorist & that's why I'm going CRAZY. That.& the fact that Unbreakable was pretty good. (view spoiler)[Also, either less romance & more action OR Jared must get his act together. (hide spoiler)]

    3.5 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)[the demon, Andras, who they unintentionally released in Unbreakable. (hide spoiler)] What I mean is I'm expecting a thrilling and scary adventure just like its predecessor but the book gave me a demon trapped in a cage, for half of the book if my estimate is right. Damn. This demon can possessed bodies and it's kinda predictable whose body will be the last person the demon will be taken in. Besides, I think the characters didn't improve at all or didn't undergo a good characterization Maybe, they did. But it isn't remarkable or even noticeable for me. And the romance is still unconvincing.Anyway, I still gave Unmarked 3.5 stars mainly because: (a) it kept me intrigued and engaged, for me to finish it in a short span of time (b) and I was dumbstrucked by the revelations and twists surfaced in this book. Senseful, note-worthy and mind-blowing. It redeemed some of my disappointments. And it made the world, the story more complicated and interesting. I bet the third book will be a blast.

    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?Still, I can't wait to read the sequel. Too bad it looks like Ms. Garcia has taken years and still hasn't finished the third book!!!!! T__T

    Sorry just got to ask...Am I the only one who thinks that the reason she didn't get the mark is because her mother wasn't the member of the legion but her father still is?? and because he's still alive there is no reason for it to pass on and the reason that he left in the first place was because he didn't want Kennedy and her mom to be involved??? because that's what it sounded like from the letter he left behind "...All I ever wanted for us - for Kennedy - was a normal life. I think we both know that's impossible."This is just my theory though so...

    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. Eventually the group manages to find their way to each other once again, and the real story starts as they are once again faced with the seemingly impossible task of defeating Andras before he can destroy everything they hold dear. They'll have to decide just how far they're willing to go, however, when during their first real encounter they run into some unexpected allies, and must decide whether or not to trust them, despite all they've been taught.~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~This wasn't a bad addition to the series, but it didn't live up to what I was expecting after reading Unbreakable. The first book, while slow to start off, did draw me in and make me look forward to seeing what happened next. We also saw some genuinely creepy settings, the orphanage and the prison, and I was looking forward to what our protagonists would be running into next.Sadly, it's not as good as I expected after the prison. They travel for a bit, including to Americas' lamest museum, but eventually they spend the last 3/4 of the book or so in one place. This wouldn't be bad on it's own - there's plenty of books with fascinating stories taking place in boarding schools, haunted houses, and the like. But there's just not a lot going on while they're there, either. Most of what we see is the group getting to know their new 'allies', deciding whether or not to trust them, and occasionally working on finding a solution to dealing with Andras before the world ends. It's a lot of angst and little action, especially with Kennedy mooning over Jared the whole time. Compared to the eeriness of the orphanage ghosts, and especially how creepily the prison and it's inhabitants, I wasn't impressed by what we're shown of Andras so far, either. He's somewhat cunning, but not more so than one could expect of a human enemy. His actions, and those he influences others to make are not what I'd expect either - he causes some awful things to happen, yes, but not more than could be done by a human. He's not as creepy as you'd expect of a demonic enemy, or as impressive.It wasn't a bad book, but it was a bit dull compared to the first. It feels like it's more build-up to the next stage of the plot than a book on it's own. I'm definitely going to check out the last book when it comes out - hopefully things will pick up and we'll get somewhere in that one. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~I recieved the ARC of this book from the author/publisher through Goodreads Give-aways, in exchange for an honest review.The ACR got here in two days. TWO. That's quite impressive, given that I'm still waiting for a horror one I won in Jan/Feb 2014 to arrive.

    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!Una delle cose che avevo apprezzato in Unbreakable era stato il modo in cui Kennedy aveva affrontato l'intera situazione, ma in questo romanzo si è persa. Anzi, devo ammettere che la protagonista si è lasciata andare già alla fine del libro precedente, si è letteralmente arresa e ha smesso di combattere. Ci vuole praticamente tutto il libro perché si dia una svegliata e ricominci a combattere. Le sue paranoie dopo un po' vengono a noia, perché sono sempre quelle e all'inizio del libro non fa assolutamente nulla per risolvere la situazione, si trova in balia degli eventi e smette di reagire. Si sente in colpa e in pratica lascia che siano i membri della Legione a cercare di sistemare tutto il casino. Ma ragazza mia! La fine del mondo si sta avvicinando, i tuoi problemi famigliari e le tue insicurezze possono anche aspettare, eh! Alla fine capisce che deve darsi una mossa e finalmente inizia a fare qualcosa.Ad un certo punto -complici due nuovi personaggi e le loro scioccanti rivelazioni- anche Priest ed Alara perdono punti. Ripeto: le loro reazioni sono più che comprensibili, ma oh! Lasciamo pure che Andras faccia i suoi comodi mentre loro sono lì fermi a pensare ai loro poveri cuoricini spezzati. Come quando Kennedy si lascia manipolare come una stupida dal demone, perché non capisce che c'è un'altra spiegazione altrettanto semplice oltre a quella detta da Andras.Forse sono io la cattiva, ma penso che in una situazione simile prima cercherei di salvarmi la vita (e quindi salvare il mondo dalla distruzione) e poi penserei a tutti gli altri problemi legati a tutte le cose non dette/bugie ecc...Il cliffhanger finale lascia un po' di speranza per il capitolo conclusivo della trilogia. Sono davvero curiosa di leggerlo e non vedo l'ora di scoprire cosa accadrà. Spero che alla fine si salvino tutti, specialmente i gemelli Lukas e Jared, che in questo libro sono stati i personaggi che ho apprezzato di più nonostante il demone. ❤

    4.5 StarsUNMARKED 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. And I was sooo happy after weeks later and 2 begging emails, an copy of UNMARKED arrived on my doorstep, and I was elated!!! I was jumping up and down like an idiot!! But I was a happy idiot, so I didn't care!! I immediately cracked it open, unable to wait any longer...and, oh the joy I found within it's pages!! The scary, terrifying, glorifying, world that I adored!!! I love Kami Garcia's writing style, she always sucks me in from the beginning and glues me to the pages. The story is so addicting and satisfying, that I literary wanted to stomp my feet like a little kid, screaming "I want it NOW" when I was done this book. Seriously, it was that amazing!!! THE PLOT...The world has become a living nightmare...your worst fears are coming true, people are dying, killing, and torturing others because they have a thirst for blood, a lot of blood.Andras, a powerful demon has been set free and wrecking havoc on the world. Killing and controlling anyone he pleases and turning their world into hells playground, and he's just getting started... Kennedy is the one who set Andras free from his eternal prison. She is the one who is responsible for all the lives that have and will be lost at the hands of the vengeful demon, but she vows to stop him, or die trying! Kennedy has finally been reunited with the other members of the Legion. Well not the other members, because she's not even sure if she's really even a member of the Legion or not, because she is still unmarked. But Kennedy can't bare the thought to leave. She knows it's not where she belongs, but her heart is pulling her to the only place she ever felt she really belonged, and that's in Jared's arms. Jared, one of the twins who saved her life on more then one occasion from a paranormal being, and the other members of the Legion have become her only family. Since her mother was murdered by a vengeful spirit, and her father walked out on her when she was young, Kennedy has felt alone, until now. So when Jared finds her after their separation, she's ready to get back with the Legion and undo the mess she created that horrible night she unleashed hell upon earth. But that's only "IF" it can even be undone... As the members of the Legion race against time to find the demon wrecking havoc all over the states, they come face to face with an enemy organization called Illuminati. But what information they bring and secrets they hold, could very well change everything the Legion once thought. But time is running out as the demons start multiplying, and the deaths become more frequent. The Legion and the Illuminati realize they will have to put aside their differences and work together if they're going to have any chance at finding and destroying the demons once and for all. But when a surprise visit from someone in the groups past surface, and someone else in the group in grave danger, they realize they might just of ran out of time...for everyone!! THE LEGION is definitely a series I highly recommend! I think fans of supernatural and paranormal books will find this one just as addicting and satisfying as I did!! Even if you're not a big fan of paranormal books, I recommend you still give it a try, because it's not that dark, bloody, gory type read, so you might find yourself enjoying it!! Overall, UNMARKED was a great second book with twist and turns that satisfied, enough action and drama that kept me entertained, and a continued romance that I loved from the first book!! I will be counting down the days until book #3 is in my happy little hands!! NOTE: I received an ARC for reviewing purposes. All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way!!BE CAREFUL, THE DEMON COULD BE ANYONE...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random LifeI 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 StarsI 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. I would recommend that this series be read in order because this book picks up right where the first left off and the events of the first book are often discussed. This book opens with Kennedy being not only separated from her group of friends, members of the Legion, but also being sent away to school by her aunt. The book gets it title from the fact that Kennedy remains unmarked after killing a spirit which means she is not actually a part of the Legion. She is not only crushed by that knowledge but by the knowledge that her actions have release a strong demon into the world. She tracks the demon by focusing on crime and notes that a string of girls have disappeared - all of which look very much like her. Her friends have not forgotten her and she reunited with them after they track her down at school. Her friend, Elle, is with the rest of the group. Together they work to track the demon and find a way to destroy it before it is able to destroy the world. Their journey forces Kennedy to look into her family tree for answers and she realizes that everything may not be exactly as she had thought. This book has a lot of twist and turns and is just plain fun to read. The writing flowed and I found myself consuming this story. The love triangle that I found annoying in the first book was gone in this book with Kennedy focused on only one of the boys. I found the characters a bit more likeable in this book than in the first. My only real complaint with this book was that there was no solid resolution. The ending was not abrupt and I am actually okay with the ending but it would have been nice to have seen everything get wrapped up with a nice little bow.I would definitely recommend this book to others that enjoy a light paranormal story, especially those that enjoyed this first book in the series. I plan to continue with this series and cannot wait to see what else is in store for Kennedy and her friends.

    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 2, or Buffy Season 5, or Teen Wolf Season 3B.It's official - Kennedy and I both need huggles now.

    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 like about it.I have to admit that I really grew to like the characters in the first novel, so that foundation was already set and I think it's this fondness I carried with me into this one that really saved Unmarked for me. If I had to re-acquaint and re-like these characters, I don't think my reaction would have been quite the same. Sometimes I had to roll my eyes quite hard at what they did or said, and sometimes I just wanted to shake them. Still, I have to say there's at least some character development going on, which was nice to see, as well as some new cast additions that I actually liked as well. The romances ... still a little too convenient and predictable. Jared turned into the absolute cheese monster, it was a little ridiculous. Also the fact that Kennedy is constantly being mopey and antisocial throughout the whole book — I mean, I totally understand where she's coming from and I don't hold it against her, but keeping up with her little pity parades regularly during the span of almost 400 pages... it does get a little annoying after a short while. Then there's the point of the budding romance between Lukas and Elle, which simply felt like a page filler and to have someone conveniently distract Lukas from the heartbreak he had to experience with the Kennedy/Jared thing from the first novel, as if every character needs a romance to round out their character arc, since yes, Alara sort of gets a love interest as well. Which bringeth me to my next point actually, which was how frustratingly random the book could be sometimes. My fingers are itching to give examples here, but that would go into major spoiler territory already, so I won't, but I'll just say that sometimes I truly couldn't get behind why this thing or that thing was happening. It seemed to serve absolutely no purpose at all, except being, of course, a page filler. Something to hold you over until we could move on to the next plot point, but is in essence completely unnecessary and redundant. Sure, why not.In the end, I did end up liking the book, as I said, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I did the first one. Which is kind of a shame, but like I said, I'm not terribly surprised or disappointed, as I really counted on this happening. I know me. Well, I for one am still definitely going to be reading the next book, which I think there's going to be one? So far, I still haven't read anything about a possible third one, but judging from that huge cliffhanger this one ended upon, there has to be one, no? Well, we'll see, I guess.This review also appears on my blog.

    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 clues to Kennedy's family past. (view spoiler)[Turns out her family lines clash - she's both Legion and Illuminati, and though she wants nothing more than to be Legion with her newfound friends, it's impossible to taint their line with Illuminati blood, so what's an Illuminati girl falling in love with a Legion boy to do? And to make things even more difficult, Andras has taken possession of someone who's become dear to her heart.(hide spoiler)]Unmarked was another quick read by Kami Garcia, but lacked a little in the action department compared to Unbreakable. It was good to get a better idea of where this series is going, but I didn't feel this installment was written in a way that resolved anything other than learning why Kennedy didn't get her mark, which happened long before the story ended. I don't know...this novel and it's direction was just weird for me. ARC provided by Little, Brown for honest review.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    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 actually stopped reading the book for like a week. Fortunately, the last 80 pages of Unmarked veered off the depression highway and started to feel more like Unbreakable. The ending gave me hope for book three. I'll read this again at some point to see if I like it better without all the expectations I had going into the first read.

    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 genre!

    3.5/5This was a good sequel to unbreakable. It was really fast paced and action packed, I really liked the creativity Kami had when coming up with some of the aspects of the supernatural world. However, it fell a bit flat for me. The writing was extra cheesy in this novel and the pacing was quite off. Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I would recommend the series (annoyed that there is no news on the 3rd book though)

    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 membri della Legione, una società segreta che ha il compito di sconfiggere fantasmi, demoni e chi più ne ha più ne metta. Kennedy, la protagonista, è sempre stata per me molto "la sfigata ciabattara della situazione", sopratutto quando in questo libro si viene a sapere che lei non c'entra una meneamata sega con la Legione, perchè in realtà lei è ben altro. Tral'altro come personaggio non mi ha mai fatto provare nulla, penso che fissare il muro per due ore sia più interessante. Ma apparte lei, la storia anche se abbastanza confusa in certi punti è molto bella da leggere sopratutto per chi ama il genere paranormal e anche un po' horror.Il gruppo di ragazzi sono uno diverso dall'altro, sono molto uniti ma nonostante questo c'è sempre qualcosa che li porta a battibeccare come neonati. Alana è quella simpatica come una scopa infilata nel retto, ma che sa dimostrare di essere una ragazza dolce e altruista. Priest era il mio preferito, costruttore di ogni cosa, amico fidato e ascoltatore di buona musica. Jared e Lukas sono due gemelli super fighi (a detta di Kennedy) a cui tendo preferire Jared nonostante sia nella pupù fino al collo in questo secondo libro."Ogni persona ha una cosa che la definisce. Una verità a cui crede al di sopra di tutto il resto. Tu sei la mia verità."Mi si scioglie il cuore a ripensare a questo povero ragazzo, che fa di tutto per proteggere la sua ragazza a costo di rimetterci la vita. Le scene con loro due insieme sono state molto dolci, a volte fuori contesto vista la situazione ma sono sicura che l'autrice volesse inserirle per smorzare l'ansia della trama generale che è molto forte. Si tratta di dover scacciare un demone molto potente che non ha nessuna intenzione di andarsene, non si trova modo da mandare via, e stanno tutti impazzendo. Io stessa a volte non capivo una cippa di grimori, incantesimi e cose varie. Roba da Ghostbusters. Il finale è ovviamente aperto, ma l'autrice ha almeno avuto il buon senso di non farlo troppo aperto. Si scopre una verità sconvolgente ma ce l'avvolge attorno come una coperta per non farci lasciare con la bocca spalancata fino al libro successivo, di cui non si sa ancora una data, quindi grazie Kami! 3 stelle.

    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.If you remember in book one Unbreakable we learn about The Legion and how they started. We learn who killed Kennedy Waters mother and why and how it is up to her and the other 4 members in the Legion to stop this demon. They went on a hunt for a piece called the Shift but what it did was something more than that thought it would. It allowed this demon who wants to bring hell onto earth to become unleashed. And that is where we stopped.In book two Unmarked, Kennedy is in a boarding school and is missing her friends as well as tracking on the unusual activity going on within the area. There have been girls being kidnapped and they have a resemblance to Kennedy even though no one else probably notices this.When Kennedy does become reunited with the other members in the group they all decide they need to figure out a way to stop Andras the Author of Discords. We read as the group travels around to find him and when they do it is much more than they expected. Kennedy finally gets the answers to why her father left and like the title in the book says Unmarked we learn why Kennedy hasn't been marked yet. I am surprised I didn't put the answer together. We learn a bit more about The Legion and finally the Illuminated which I think is a bit cool. We meet new characters and even though they want to help you got to remember not to trust everyone. This book is full of twists and turns some suspense and has you wondering what can possibly happen now that these teens have gotten themselves into a pickle. The romance between Jared and Kennedy is sweet but it is like ya'll either need to be together or just say it isn't going to work out. Though in the predicament that they find themselves in it will be hard to say good bye. When I got to the end of the book I was a bit disappointed as I couldn't believe that was the end, I mean really? How long do I have to wait until book three comes out because I am ready to get my hands on it. I just hope it is sooner rather than later.If you are looking for a good YA, paranormal with some romance (nothing to fancy just normal teenage love) than I say pick this book up. If you like demons and learning how to fight for the good then pick this up!!

    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.Action:The action is one of the best things about this series. This book reminded me of the show Supernatural. Amazing. The ghosts. The demons. How they used salt rounds as bullets in a paintball gun. It was awesome, you get so pulled into book!Romance:Let me just say that Kami Garcia is a genius. The way she writes about Kennedy and Jared is so amazing. I do have to say that I love Lukas but I love Jared more. Jared is SO Dean (from Supernatural) and come on, everyone loves Dean. I'm really excited to read more about their story, I really enjoyed reading about them!Heroine:Kennedy was a very likable character. She's brave and totally in love with Jared. I really enjoyed reading about her character and I'm looking forward to read more of her story.Hero:Hmmm... Jared or Lukas? I'm going for Jared. There twins. There sweet, buff, and absolutely gorgeous. They reminded me of Dean and Sam from Supernatural (Jared as Dean and Lukas as Sam), and if you haven't seen Supernatural you should because its amazing.Favorite Supporting Character:Priest is the one who makes the book funny. He may be younger than the rest of the gang but he's definitely one of the smartest.Something I loved:The romance, the action, and the creepiness. I love all the characters and everything about this book.Cliffhanger? Yes. And I can't wait for the next one!Would I recommend it?If you're into a creepy thriller with some amazing romance, then definitely!Will I buy/keep it?Yes!Rating:4,5-AnnaReadingTeen.netViolence: HeavySexual: MildLanguage: MildOther: None

    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 awesomely logic inventions. If I had his brain I think I would be a bloody millionaire. Just saying. The side characters really pulled me through this book. If it wasn’t for them I probably would have disengaged a long time ago.Another great element is the eariness, which although wasn’t as drastically present in this second instalment as in the first, it still crept up on you at the most unexpected points. It’ll leave you having to sleep with the light on.I just don’t feel like I enjoy reading from Kennedy’s perspective. At times I find her concerned with things that are utterly painful and idiotic to be concerned about. Her inner dialogue at times can be repetitive, and her immaturity definitely shines through. I did not enjoy what happened just after the half way mark to my wonderful love interest. No, I did not. For the reason that my romance was then shot to hell!Anyway.. I really must commend Garcia on bringing in lore and historical elements as well as secret societies. I think it added a whole other level that really made the story more interesting. It wasn’t completely as well executed as I would have liked, the clues were rather wanky, but all in all it makes for an excellent paranormal mystery romance.

    **I received this E-book for free from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Paranormal Fantasy*Rating* 3.0*Full Review to Follow*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 ends up tracking the Big Bad's reign of terror which takes up her every waking moment. Her other regret is being separated from Jared who promised to find her.With the Big Bad causing apocalyptic situations across the world, Kennedy doesn't exactly feeling as though she is capable of stopping anyone, let alone saving her Legion friends Alara, Priest, Lukas, Jared, as well as her best friend Elle who joins the cast. Unmarked sets up the next installment in the series by going even further into a world full of death, angels, demons, and secret societies that have been on polar opposites for centuries. Secrets unveil themselves to Kennedy, and they're not exactly inspirational, nor do they bring her any closer to defeating the Big Bad. The key ingredient to Unmarked, is Kennedy's family. Why did her father really leave when she was 5 years old? Does she have any other family that could possibly be Legion? *Recvd 10/01/2014 via NetGalley* Published: September 30, 2014 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

    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 … I mean, a taxidermy museum??? I loved that there was also a lot of action, I'm a blood-and-violence girl, so this kept me interested and happy. I also liked that readers get to see into Kennedy's past, her mom and dad … wow … I do wish Jared and Kennedy would get their act together, though, because the two of them have chemistry and I need more of that! I love the Legion series, it's dark eerie and well written.Head over to the HEA Blog to see if Kami has any ghosts hiding in her family's closet!http://www.usatoday.com/story/happyev...

    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.http://perdidaenunmundodelibros.blogs...

    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. **Huge thanks to Little Brown and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

    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)[it's Kennedy's father who is in The Legion. I mean all the clues are in the first book as to why she is unmarked. (hide spoiler)]If she doesn't, then she has learned nothing as a writer from the first series about "big reveals."
