Untold (The Lynburn Legacy #2) by Sarah Rees Brennan

Untold (The Lynburn Legacy, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
It's time to choose sides....

On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.

But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?

A darkly humorous take on Gothic romance, Sarah Rees Brennan's Lynburn Legacy weaves together the tale of a heroine desperate to protect those she loves, two boys hoping to be saved, and the magical forces that will shape their destiny.

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Untold (The Lynburn Legacy, #2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Rob and his band of sorcerers are intent on taking over the town of Sorry-in-the-vale, whist Kami, Ash, and Jared plan to stop him.
Can they accomplish what they need to though? Will Sorry ever be free from the Lynburns again?

This was an okay sequel, and I think it was maybe a little better than the first one.

Kami was an okay character, although her jokes hadn’t gotten any better; I maybe laughed at one of them, but most fell pretty darn flat. The way she fought to save the town was pretty admirable, but she also probably took some unnecessary risks.

The storyline was okay, although I did get a bit bored in places. I think that if I hadn’t taken breaks from this it would probably have bored me even more.
There was some romance, and once again it was in the form of a love triangle. I think even Kami had problems knowing who it was she wanted to kiss at the beginning which was a little confusing. I was glad when it seemed like we were actually going to get some truth out of Jared about how he actually felt about her!
The ending was pretty good, even if it was a little predictable. I’m going to be generous and give this one 3.5 stars.
Overall; okay sequel,
7 out of 10.
