Pick of the Week

I am not quite sure what was going on, but for some reason I forgot to do my pick of the week post yesterday. Some weeks I skip because nothing quite grabs my attention, but there is one that I have been waiting patiently for. I was very pleasantly surprised by last year’s Unspoken, the first book of Sarah Rees Brennan‘s Lynburn Legacy (I actually added it to the 1001 Series to Read Before You Die page). Yesterday saw the release of book two, Untold.


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.

Did anyone else try this series? It was totally not what I was expecting, but in a very good way.

    I was actually quite surprised by the way that the first book ended — and that makes for a refreshing change. I do have plans to read Untold, but my copy of Styxx arrived. Holy cow, that book is so huge I’m thinking of keeping it on my nightstand as a potential weapon against intruders. It might be a while before I get to Untold.

      I did the same thing when Styxx thunked out of the box – I had a duh moment and thought it was two books somehow stuck together. And since I haven’t read the first 25+ books in the series yet either, it is looking like a loooong while until I get to it.
