In this second book in the Lynburn Legacy, the sorcerous roots of Sorry-in-the-Vale have been exposed. No one in the town is safe, and a decision must be made: pay the sorcerers’ blood sacrifice, or fight. Will the townspeople (magical and not) become “owned” by the sorcerers who believe it is their right to rule? 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 go along with her unusual tactics.

(And here’s another synopsis that is a bit spoilery.)

Free from bonds, but not each other.

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?

Why I’m waiting?

The Lynburn Legacy world exudes that gothic feel that I love in books.  Gothic-type books are always a “yes please.” More so for this series because I adored the first book, Unspoken. I became so attached to the characters that I didn’t want anything bad to happen. I was heartbroken by the ending cliffhanger. I need to know what happens with Kami!  I can’t wait to see what Untold brings us. 

What books are you waiting on?

  2. I picked this a few weeks back. Must say, amazing choice. Unspoken pretty much killed me.
