Sinossi

In this second book in the Lynburn Legacy, the sorcerous roots of Sorry-in-the-Vale have been exposed. Now no one in the town is safe, and everyone has to choose sides. Will the townspeople (magical and not) become "owned" by the sorcerers who believe it is their right to rule? Or will it continue in a more modern vein, with the presence of the sorcerers playing a quieter--and much less violent--role. If Kami Glass has anything to say about it, evil will not win. Despite having given up her own piece of magic, she is determined to do everything she can to make a difference. And whether they want to or not, her circle of friends (and potential boyfriends) will not be able to help but follow her and go along with her unusual schemes and battle tactics.

I have to admit that I liked the first book more than this one, but it still got that fresh and funny style that I like a lot. The characters are so well structured and I'm basically in love with Rusty and Kami's dad. So, hoping nothing will happen to them, I will continue my reading!

Liberi dai legami, ma non l’uno dall’altro.

È arrivato il momento di scegliere da che parte schierarsi… In apparenza, Sorry-in-the-Vale è una dormiente cittadina inglese. Ma Kami Glass conosce la verità. Sorry-in-the-Vale è piena di magia. In passato, la famiglia Lynburn governava con la paura, terrorizzando la popolazione in modo da sottometterla per poter uccidere per il sangue e il potere. Ora i Lynburn sono tornati, e Rob Lynburn si sta circondando di stregoni in modo che la città possa tornare alle origini.

Ma Rob e i suoi seguaci non sono gli unici stregoni in città. E va presa una decisione: pagare il sacrificio di sangue, o combattere. Per Kami questo significa più che scegliere tra il bene e il male. Ora che il suo legame con Jared Lynburn è stato reciso, è libera di scegliere di amare chiunque voglia. Ma chi dovrebbe essere? (Fonte: Goodreads)

(La traduzione è mia per The Lynburn Legacy Italia, si prega di non copiare o di citare la fonte)

Se avete letto Unspoken – e se mi conoscete personalmente ho fatto in modo che fosse così, torturandovi fino al momento in cui non avete ceduto alle mie pressioni e l’avete letto – conoscete il finale emotivamente distruttivo a cui ci ha sottoposto Sarah. Beh, Untold prende le mosse da circa due settimane dopo il finale di Unspoken, con Kami che cerca di ritrovare una sua identità, ora che Jared non è più con lei, e Jared che cerca di rispettare quello che crede sia il volere di Kami.

Faccio subito una prima digressione, da amante della letteratura di ogni genere e tempo.

5.0 su 5 stelle Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan 21 settembre 2013
Di Sarah Rose Woodward - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I have loved Sarah Rees Brennan's work since the first thing I read by her. I have always found her to be endlessly entertaining, with a light, deft hand displaying a skilled wordsmith who brings every world she writes to life. Her books are humorous and well paced, and her characters very easy to fall in love with. I loved Untold. I think her latest series, filled with secrets and magic, high school reporters and high school slackers, is for those who read the YA genre especially, but also open to a wider audience who wish for a light read about an English valley full of mysteries. The plot is fast paced and and entertaining, and the little twists thrown in enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys YA books, or books about magic, or strong, independent girls and women.

4.0 su 5 stelle Focused on the characters 18 febbraio 2014
Di Charlene - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
After the heart-wrenching cliffhanger of book 1 Unspoken, I was so eager to read the next book in the series. Kami and Jared's relationship is a major part of the appeal of these books. They have their quirks, they completely understand each other (or at least they did once when there was a link between them) and they both have such strong personalities. It's most fun when they banter back and forth, but there is a lot of angst in this book that meant the sharp, witty humor of the first book is a little dampened. There are still some great comebacks and turns of phrases though - especially from my other favorite character - Rusty.

Although there is a lot at stake in Sorry-in-the-Vale and the main characters are in a lot of danger, the story moves a little too leisurely for most of the book. There is a big focus on Kami and Jared's feelings and whether or not they can overcome what happened in the first book and while it is necessary, I did think it was a little too drawn out sometimes. Considering what actually happens in the book, there is very little advancement to the plot, and much more character development. It's interesting to understand Ash, Holly, Angela and Rusty better, but I wish there was more to the story than just what was going on with these characters' relationships.

Having said all that though, I still enjoyed reading the second installment of The Lynburn Legacy very much, and I find all the revelations about the Lynburns and their practices to be very intriguing. I think there are many more things to learn about them and the world, and there is definitely another very aggravating and soul-hurting cliffhanger in store for you in the second book. The wit and humor, the dangerous reality of the situation Kami and her friends are in, and the appealing simplicity of the good vs. evil in this story makes this a great read, and I am eagerly waiting for the last book in the series!

5.0 su 5 stelle Eagerly anticipated and well worth the wait 5 ottobre 2013
Di Zed - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Eagerly anticipated and definitely worth the wait. I had forgotten how magical Sarah's writing is. How it can transform even the most serious of conversations into something hilariously funny.

In Untold we see how Jared and Kami behave ever since their link is severed. How Jared can't bear to be around her and how much she misses his presence. Jared wants the link back more than anything else and Kami can't help but think whether he loved the link or her...

The fight with Rob continues, where Rob is gathering as many sorcerers onto his side and trying to take Aurimere from Lilian. At the same time, Kami and her team are trying to find ways to protect themselves, and Kami finds herself becoming more alone and uncertain, now that she no longer has Jared to rely on.

The ending is oh so sad... truly heartbreaking but at the same time I cannot wait to get my hands on book 3!

Favourite Quotes:

"You know what?" Kami said with a grin. "Mrs. Jeffries at the post office tried to slip me a little somethin' somethin' to praise her scarecrow in The Nosy Parker. It's shocking how corrupt the Scarecrow Trials have become. What about honor, Angela? What about the craft?"
"How much did you get?"
"Well, okay, she slipped me some free stamps," Kami admitted. "Still, my first bribe as a journalist. I'm feeling pretty fancy."

"Cambridge?" he said, using his silly nickname for her. "A scarecrow just tried to choke me. I don't wish to seem overly inquisitive, but do you have any idea what on earth is happening?"

"Right," said Rusty. "So you don't have, ah, magic powers anymore."
"Can you stop prefixing magic powers with 'ah'?"
"I'm not ready to drop the prefix," Rusty told her. "If you like, I can switch prefixes. I'm happy to go with 'um, magic powers' or 'er...magic powers.' Whichever works best for you ladies."

"What are you doing?" Angela complained. "Are you trying to make me jog? You know I think people who jog should be shot at midday."
"Why at midday?" Kami asked absently.
"There's no need to ever get up at dawn," Angela told her. "Not even to shoot joggers.

"I only came here because my boy asked me to - and he only asked because he knew it was what you wanted."
"Yes," Kami told her. "This evening was all my dreams come true. I can never get enough of people looking down their noses at me. You do it beautifully. I wish you had two noses, so that you could look at me down both."

"Angela," she whispered, "are you asleep?"
Angela, lying on her back with her eyes shut and her hands folded like Snow White in a glass coffin, said flatly, "Yes."
"Because I'd like to talk about our feeeeelings."
"I wish I was dead."
"Angela, you don't mean that."
"Kami, I do. And do you know why? Because then you might let me rest in peace."

"You're going to Hallow's Field on your motorcycle?"
"Want a lift?"
"No," said Kami. "I mean, you're going into a situation where something really bad might be happening, and you've decided to make sure they can hear you coming? Better hope being a tavern wench works out, because you, sir, will never be a ninja."

"You have nothing to be sorry for," Kami said firmly. "But if you have any free classes today, please photocopy some extra copies of the paper and I promise to love you always and forgive you for any evil you ever do. Some say love cannot be bought, but mine is available at this time for anyone with a good heart and the ability to use a photocopier."

"...Ash should take the ladies because he's charming."
Ash looked pleased. Jared raised his eyebrows.
"Are you saying that I'm not a charmer?"
"You are very dear to me, but you have all the savoir of a wildebeest," Kami told him.
"A wildebeest," Jared repeated.
"A dashingly handsome wildebeest," Kami assured him.

4.0 su 5 stelle Untold Review 4 ottobre 2013
Di Emily @ Falling for YA - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I loved Unspoken beyond all reason. My review is nothing but gushing sentences and stress. The cliffhanger at the end was a doozey and I don't know how I managed to wait over a year to read Untold, but I did, and now I'm tasked with scooping up my feels and sorting them in to a coherent review.

Untold begins soon after Unspoken ended and Kami and Jared are not speaking, barely tolerating one another and both of them are absolutely miserable. They, along with the rest of the crew, must band together to stop Ash's father from taking over Sorry-in-the-Vale and reinstituting blood sacrifices. The group spends a lot of time making plans, having planning meetings, training for said plan etc. and that is the reason I was unable to give this book 5 stars. The plot itself is not this books strong suit. There is so much waiting around for a final battle that when the battle does happen I felt rather unimpressed.

What this book does well, and what Sarah does well, is characters. I adore Kami who has taken her fledging journalism career in her own hands and is passing out a school paper that the entire town is reading. I love that she is strong, spunky, and despite not having any magical power she is the one actively trying to save the town, it is Kami that the others are following and looking to for direction. Even if Kami is a jumbled mess over Jared.

Jared disappointed me a little in this book. I won't lie I've never been firmly in Jared's corner. The brooding bad boy act is a little old, and while I do want him and Kami to be together his actions make it hard for me to like him. Jared and Kami kept having these `two ships passing in the night' moments and after a while I wanted to shake them both. Say what you mean, and mean what you say!

Luckily, Rusty played a much bigger role in this novel and that almost entirely made up for my frustration with Kami and Jared. When I met Sarah at the RT Convention this year she asked me what team I was on and instantly and unabashedly I said "Team Rusty of course!" The guy is a total scene stealer and I liked that he is a little more serious (though still witty and awesome) in this novel. I hope to see even more of him in the next novel.

I almost forgot to mention Angela, Holly, and Ash so to quickly recap. Angela was great. I like her nearly as much as her brother. I've never really liked Holly so I didn't like her in this book either. I could rant on about why I dislike her but honestly I don't have a very good reason, she is just a character I don't like. I found myself wondering why Kami is friends with her in the first place and I drew a blank. Then Ash, he reminds me of Amelia Pond in Doctor Who, he is the boy who waited; the one who's done everything right and just wants to be noticed and loved. I feel so sorry for/sympathetic toward Ash I want him to have a happy ending because the guy is trying so damn hard and no one ever seems to notice or give him credit for that.

Overall, Untold was a novel I enjoyed. I didn't like it as much as Unspoken. I felt the plot was a bit repetitive with all the planning and preparations but I was so happy to see the characters again that it was worth the wait. I am now going to suffer through another year of waiting just to read more about these characters and Sorry-in-the-Vale and Rusty, but mostly Rusty.
5.0 su 5 stelle This book was my least favorite of the series 30 novembre 2014
Di Patricia Owens - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This second book was a fast and amazing read. I zoomed through it with a fierce hunger. I love the story and all it's humor and uniqueness. I like the town set in some far away county of England. I like the spunky, would-be reporter. I like the drop-dead gorgeous best friend who is obviously into women (love that there is no threat of competition). I also like the relationship between the triangle of romancers (not sure if that's a word, but it works). My heart was broken at the end of book 1 and even though the mend was slow in book 2 the main character never looses sight of what she wants in order to please the boy who rules her heart. Love the series!!

***Two reviews in one...
Book 3 was my least favorite of the series. I was enamored with every part of the stories plot and the main character was a girl after my own heart. Her wit and sarcasm only added to the character build. I loved the supernatural element, as it hadn't been done and the spin w/elemental based, magic wielding social elite was refreshing. The Lynburn boys are desirable for their own seperate reasons and when it got a bit hot under the collar, it WAS hot. Though, admittedly without satisfaction.
I felt the last book was satisfactory all the way up until the end where it abruptly ends with no real DTR to the love struck teens and the future of the town just feels unfinished. I mean there was a reason why the entire town worshiped the Lynburn's and allowed the atrocities to happen...right!?! That was a real let down for me.
Other than that I enjoyed my time reading and would do it again if given a literary time machine.
