I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me. When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.

Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way

Unbreakable Review


OMG, that was one hell of an adventure! I loved everything about this book! Phew...My mind is still racing with all of the awesomeness that Kami Garcia has brought to the Supernatural book world!

This is the perfect spine-chilling, heart-pounding, ghost hunting, action-packed Paranormal book to read around October. Because let me tell you, there was more then a couple parts that I caught myself sliding further and further under the sheets! Yeah, this book definitely put the scare into me!

I have never read anything from this author so I really didn't know what to expect from her. But I found myself easily falling into this authors writing, and the plot took off after that. I loved her descriptive writing in Unbreakable. There was a lot of pictures and objects that were crucial to the setting, and if the author didn't deliver it the right way, it would just fall apart. But Mrs. Garcia painted such vivid scenes that I literally could picture every description to the T.

 The Plot
 

Have you ever thought you heard whispers, or seen something move that wasn't suppose too, or just felt you weren't alone, when you really were? Well this is the world Kennedy Waters lives in, but all them things are real, and something is watching, waiting, and ready to strike.

Kennedy and four other teenagers are descendants of a group called The Legion. Its made up of a 5 person ghost hunter organization to keep the spirits, dybbuk, demons, and other crazy supernatural being that are not suppose to exist at bay, and eliminate them.

But for Kennedy Waters, she has always lived a fairly normal life, until one day her mother dies of a strange heart attack. After that Kennedy is almost killed by a vengeance spirit! Then she must face the truth, Ghost really do exist!


As Kennedy is pulled into the supernatural world that she never knew exist, she is told she is a descendent of the Legion, and bound by her birthright to take her mothers place in the Legion, to eliminate the vengeance spirits from earth! But Kennedy can't wrap her head around all of this fast enough to understand what's going on around her, as spirits are coming at them full force, trying to eliminated The Legion for good! And to make matters worse, their two hot twins that are both catching Kennedy's eye!
 




If Kennedy ever wants to be safe of these vengeance spirits that are hunting her and trying to kill her every chance they get, then she's going to have to fight back, or at least die trying!

When I was done reading this book, I was already looking up the next book's release date. I just wanted to jump back into this series and devour Kami Garcia's world she created in Unbreakable.

I will be reading more from this author and look forward to continuing this series. She has a great imagination that will keep me entertained to hours!
