four-stars

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?The second novel in Kami Garcia's (co-author of the bestselling Beautiful Creatures series) gripping urban fantasy series is full of suspense, romance and drama, that will have readers hooked until the last page.

This book was just as amazing as the first book and I am so glad I started reading this series. I love that it is full of supernatural elements but we still get romance and friendship throughout it. We start the series back out by us meeting back up with Kennedy who is in boarding school and still trying to figure out what happened to the group and if they are all ok. I loved that Kennedy was still trying to figure out how to stop what she started regardless of her being with the group. There are some events that take place that cause Kennedy to end up back with the group and from there that is when the action and suspense takes off again. Kennedy soon learns that all she may think she knows may get turned on it’s head really quickly and in the process she will learn more about herself in the process.

 

As the story continues Kennedy meets some new people and she learns more about her mom and her aunt and even a little bit about her dad. There are major events that happen in this book and a lot of them are of epic proportions and left me with my jaw hanging open a few times. I have to say that I love this group and the way they have bonded with each other and really learned to treat each other like family. Kennedy is a lot stronger than I think she realizes and I felt like this book really showcased that this time around. After one of the major events that happens she is left pretty much having to hold the group together and keep them motivated. I loved that she had the capability of being a leader and sounding board for the group.

Overall this book was just as good as the first and I loved every minute of it. I loved the characters even more this time because they really have grown and evolved into better people. There was a good bit of romance this time around too and it all made sense to me. I loved the way the author wove it into the story and I was so heartbroken throughout this book. With the revelations that take place in this book I can’t wait for the next one. I want to know just why Kennedy is Unmarked and what that may mean.
