Unspoken is one of my all time favorite books. I love the characters and the way Sarah Rees Brennan introduces the reader to the Lynburn family. Unspoken is pure perfection and if you haven’t read it yet I suggest you stop reading this (I don’t know why you’d be reading a review for the 3rd book if you haven’t read the first anyway, but you might’ve come here on accident) and get yourself a copy!

I’ll be the first to admit that Untold wasn’t my favorite, but I was still very excited for Unmade. I needed to know what was going to happen to Kami, Jared, Ash, Rusty, and all of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Unmade begins shortly after the events of Untold. The crew is trying to figure out a way to defeat Rob Lynburn, and Kami doesn’t want to believe that Jared could be dead.

My favorite thing about this novel was the characters. Unfortunately, the plot was a little slow, and at times, I thought it was being drawn out. There was a lot of researching and sitting around when I wanted more of Kami’s headstrong running in to danger without thinking. Luckily, the characters saved this novel and I loved all the interactions between Kami, Ash, and Jared and also between Holly and Angie. I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that the dialogue between Kami’s Dad and Mrs. Lynburn was hilarious! Sarah Rees Brennan excels are writing funny and relatable dialogue.

Sarah Rees Brennan also excels at writing scenes that tug at my heartstrings. There is one scene involving Rusty that I was not prepared for and I’m still not ready to talk about. Maybe later, maybe someday, but not today.

Overall, I enjoyed this conclusion to the Lynburn Legacy series but I didn’t love it. At times it lagged and I had trouble seeing Rob’s evil motivations. Still, it was a satisfying ending to a series I enjoyed.
