Unmarked: Review


The heart-pounding sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Unbreakable, by New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures co-author Kami Garcia.

He is here... and he could be anyone.

Kennedy Waters lives in a world where vengeance spirits kill, ghosts keep secrets, and a demon walks among us–a demon she accidentally set free.

Now Kennedy and the other Legion members–Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared–have to hunt him down. As they learn more about the history of the Legion and the Illuminati, Kennedy realizes that the greatest mystery of all does not belong to any secret order, but to her own family. With the clock ticking and the life of someone she loves hanging in the balance, Kennedy has to ask the question she fears most: what is it about her past that has left her Unmarked?


Unmarked is still surprisingly good for a sequel, but not in the way Unbreakable is. If Unbreakable is the action-packed one, Unmarked will be more heart-wrenching. It's still filled with nice plots, but the emotional ride is much more intense than its prequel. However, I like the first book better, because there are some things that I'm not satisfied with.

The biggest is the whole "pain and fury" part. It's masterfully written, but it's a little bit overdone. The problem is that Kennedy realizes a lot of things that do not go into her favor. Or worse. I'm guessing the author is trying to make the situation dire. But Kennedy has gone through too much that it's hard to think that there will be a surprise ending for Kennedy. If there are little hopes being diminished, I think the book will become more interesting that way.

However, other than this problem, there are little problems that do not worth mentioning, and do little to ruining some part of the book. This book really builds you up in a surprisingly ordinary way. Of course someone close to Kennedy will be in danger, and a deadly one. Taunts are really the best part of the book, because you can't help but feel bad for Kennedy and the people suffering. I won't expect myself to like the taunts and teases in the book, because I know they will just pisses me off most of the time.

I can't wait for the next book. It's one of the better sequels I've ever read.

Rating: 8/10
