Book Review: The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan


Synopsis from GoodReads:

Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?

My Review:

I absolute love this book, Sarah is a wonderful author!
I have honestly never laughed so much at a book since The Mortal Instruments.

I did not like the ending, I wanted a happy ending, not “You can burn in hell now, for all I care.” I wanted kisses and touches.
I’m loving Untold though!

I recommend this to anyone who loves paranormal, magic, love stories, mystery. This book/series has everything! I LOVE it! 😀

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars (I love this book and the witty oneliners!)


Synopsis from GoodReads:

It’s time to choose sides….

On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.

But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?

A darkly humorous take on Gothic romance, Sarah Rees Brennan’s Lynburn Legacy weaves together the tale of a heroine desperate to protect those she loves, two boys hoping to be saved, and the magical forces that will shape their destiny.

My Review:

This book in the series I enjoyed because despite in being the middle book in the series, where things can either go downhill or superbly brilliant, I’m glad to say this did the latter. It both books together into the trilogy wonderfully, all the characters and the storyline itself flowed and developed well.
I enjoyed this book just as much as the first book. It’s definitely a series I could read time and time again!

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars


Synopsis from GoodReads:

Powerful love comes with a price. Who will be the sacrifice?

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.

Rob Lynburn is now the master of Sorry-in-the-Vale, and he demands a death. Kami will use every tool at her disposal to stop him. Together with Rusty, Angela, and Holly, she uncovers a secret that might be the key to saving the town. But with knowledge comes responsibility—and a painful choice. A choice that will risk not only Kami’s life, but also the lives of those she loves most.

This final book in the Lynburn Legacy is a wild, entertaining ride from beginning to shocking end.

My Review:

This book is just as brilliantly amazing as the first two, and is a wonderful way to end a trilogy. (Even if I do hope there is a book 4 or other series.)
It made me laugh uncontrollably, I would live to get inside Sarah’s mind and see where all this wackiness comes from. Like seriously “dream canoe”=best pet name ever!

Though it brought so much suspense, romantic, heartbreak and loss along with it. When that certain someone died, well let’s just say I didn’t see it coming. So it hurt.
It had the most beautiful ending, and it was such a Kami way to do it.
All in all, I loved it! Definitely a favourite trilogy of mine. 🙂

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars
