A new student review of Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan

snehayamsani posted a new student review of Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan. See the full review.

Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan is the third book in The Lynburn Legacy. It is well written, the characters are adorable and funny, and the plot is just downright amazing.


Brennan does an amazing job with the writing by adding her own intelligent and witty remarks throughout the book. It’s light, funny, heartbreaking, sorrowful, and beautiful all at once!


Brennan also does a good job creating the characters. Kami is sassy, funny, witty, and extremely loyal. By far, Kami is probably the most favorable character in the book (though her dad comes to a close second). Brennan also creates undeniable chemistry between Kami and Jared that is true of the saying "opposites attract." Jared’s moodiness reflects Kami’s sassiness and his dark posture brings out Kami’s witty personality. Anyone can see that the two characters balance each other out, even through the ups and downs of their relationship.


If I had read the other two books, Unspoken and Untold, I'm positive I would have understood the plot better. Unfortunately, I read the final book of the series without reading the first two. Nevertheless, I liked it. Brennan puts a new spin on magic and sorcery by using modern elements to develop a well thought out story.


I did feel that the plot of Unmade moves too fast. Everything seems rushed and too coincidental. I mean Kami just happens to find the boy she loves trapped underground, yet she is able to save him unharmed by her enemies? It just seems too easy.

Overall, I’d give this book a 4 out of 5.
