Unmade (The Lynburn Legacy, #3) by Sarah Rees Brennan (ARC Review)
Powerful love comes with a price. Who will be the sacrifice?
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.
This final book in the Lynburn Legacy is a wild, entertaining ride from beginning to shocking end.

" She was real, though, real somewhere out in the world and the light. If he could have wished for anything in his life it would have been for her to be real, and she was. He had heard her laugh on the air and not in his head, that marvelous marveling sound, and seen the tender sacred curve of her face and her mouth. She would not end when he did. He had been granted his wish, he had been infinitely lucky. He could bear this: this did not compare to the gift he had been given. "
This is the final book in The Lynburn Legacy trilogy and to say the ending was bittersweet would be an understatement. This book shows that in the middle of a battle, hope is the key although it can be a doble edged sword.
At the end of Untold, we see Jared sacrificing himself to save Kami s brother and leaving Kami hertbroken. But in the very beginning of Unmade we see he is alive, but not so well since Rob has him in the hole with Holly s dead uncle. The rest of the gang is preparing for the final fight to try and save the town from assface Rob all while dealing with some personal problems. Kami s parents are not speaking and are sleeping in separate houses, Ash and Kami are linked and are struggling with that connection, Holly is fighting with herself and trying to face her feelings and Angela and Rusty are still their special selves, my favorite characters in this series. Kami sometimes went on my nerves but her strenght when it counted and her fighting for Jared redeemed her in my eyes.
Also, there is all that love drama between Jared and Kami, who are truly meant for each other, that special humor of Ms. Brennan that made this series so wonderful to me and the fear of unknown, you never know what might happen to one of the characters.
We know from the blurb that there will be sacrifices but when the time came and I found out who it was, my heart broke and I had to stop reading and cried for awhile. This read was an emotional ride that has been tragic, frustrating yet lovely and a great ending to the trilogy though heartwrenching at times.
"There is one thing I thought you knew, and if you don't I have to tell you. I am utterly in love with you. I've been in love with you my whole life. I've been in love with youyour whole life. I don't know how to live without being in love with you, and I don't want to know."
