Summary (from Goodreads): Kami has lost the boy she loves, is tied to a boy she does not, and faces an enemy more powerful than ever before. With Jared missing for months and presumed dead, Kami must rely on her new magical link with Ash for the strength to face the evil spreading through her town. 

Rob Lynburn is now the master of Sorry-in-the-Vale, and he demands a death. Kami will use every tool at her disposal to stop him. Together with Rusty, Angela, and Holly, she uncovers a secret that might be the key to saving the town. But with knowledge comes responsibility—and a painful choice. A choice that will risk not only Kami’s life, but also the lives of those she loves most.



It's so incredibly difficult to review the last novel in a series, because I'm always so paranoid that I'll give away huge plot twists or character fates. But I will continue on, if only to be able to tell myself that I at least tried to convince everyone reading this to get themselves to a bookstore ASAP and pick up all three books in Sarah Rees Brennan's The Lyburn Legacy trilogy. 

This series is everything I love about YA packed into three four-hundred page books. They're smart, funny, and full of my favourite kinds of angsty relationship drama. They will make you laugh and cry in equal volume, and you will gladly turn back to the beginning when you're done and start all over again. I've read the first two books three times each, and I already know my rereads of Unmade will number at least twice that many. It was that good. Sarah Rees Brennan's writing is an incredible mix of sarcasm, breathtaking description and imagery, and relationship dynamics that will keep your eyes glued to the page. 

There's not much else I can say without giving anything away, so please take my word for it and delve into this amazing series. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Final Thoughts: I recommend this trilogy to anyone who enjoys paranormal YA and is looking for something equal parts funny and heartbreaking.
