Actual rating: Alright guys! And a woman who may not have chosen demon hunter as her first job, but falls into it with a vengeance. T I received this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Did you guess Supernatural? I mean, do you know —really know - how many Supernatural fans there are?
The main character is Kennedy whose mom is killed by the main demon in question. Two brothers come storming in when a ghost is going to kill Kennedy and shoot the ghost with rock salt, making the ghost leave.
The house is attacked by a poltergeist. But wait. This fanfiction gets better! Bad enough, right? What do self-insert fanfictions come with? Instalove and a love triangle, of course! After maybe a few days. Enough to completely change personalities and training.
Granted, this happens in the only redeemable and maybe original scene in the book. If there is one, please correct me. Two scenes. Fuck that shit. But those scenes? So at this point I was so angry because I could have been reading legit fanfiction with better character development. And maybe they were legitimate characters, but it was so easy for them to slip into their Supernatural roles that I never really had to take them out.
So, have you seen Supernatural? If so, avoid this book.

Because guess what? She even stole the Apocalypse ending. How the fuck did this get published? This is a fanfiction not even bothering to hide it!! View all 14 comments. Jun 05, Giselle rated it really liked it Shelves: What a nail biter! Unbreakable has a creepy cover with an equally freaky story.
For all of you supernatural thriller fans out there this one is not to be missed! I made the mistake of starting this book at midnight; a book that has crazy happenings and intense goosebump-worthy scenes right from the beginning.
Every page had me delving deeper and deeper under the covers just so I would stop imagining hellish demon ghosts at the foot of my bed!
And by hellish demon ghosts I mean exactly that! You w What a nail biter! You won't find Casper in here. By page 32 my heart was already pounding from the horror of this unexplained supernatural evil that started to haunt Kennedy.
Ok if I'm being honest, I kind of loved it. I'm a sucker for horrors and even though I freak myself out reading them I can't stop myself! Kami vividly describes these vengeful spirits in the eeriest of ways. I could imagine them clear as day and feel their coldness seep into my skin. From evil ghosts children holding mangled dolls, to faces that flick from a child's to an old woman's, to bloated and bruised faces rising from wells; it's all wonderfully horrific with a sense of anxiety that never lets up.
At first, Kennedy is not sure exactly what's going on but she knows it's nothing natural. Soon she meets twins Jared and Lukas who explain that she's part of a secret society of demon hunters.
This is where we meet the intriguing cast who make up the Legion. The character development is not the book's strongest component, however. Due to the action-packed nature of the plot, we get no backstories and few occasions to get to know them. In turn, the group dynamic is not dominant which could have made a big difference in how much heart this series possesses.
I still found the characters fun to journey with. I enjoyed Priest the most. He's perceptive and intelligent; the one exuding the most personality. Seeing he's the baby of the gang also evoked a sense of protectiveness towards him. Another area that could have used work is the romance. Although it didn't hinder my enjoyment of the book per se, I would have much preferred if it had been non existent. For one, it felt like it was added for no other reason than a perceived necessity in today's YA market.
Secondly, using my superior deduction skills, I have concluded she falls for this guy simply because he's hot. Lastly, there's a bizarre maybe-triangle that forms between Kennedy and the twins. I say maybe because we're never certain of where everyone's feelings lay.
It could be a love triangle, or it could be a single love interest and the other a "protective older brother". Don't let this romance deter you, however. Despite it surfacing regularly, I didn't find it to be a very significant part of the plot.
As such it's hardly a nuisance, it simply didn't strengthen the book. Fans of Supernatural the TV series will find similarities in both story arcs and tone. To defeat this demon they need to find a certain weapon, which means a lot of visits to the most terrifying places - an abandoned prison and a home for children for instance. Like the ghosts themselves, the descriptions of these places are thoroughly chilling. The horror aspect is the book's strong suit, and if you go into it wanting an entertaining, scary read you will be highly satisfied despite its flaws.
It focuses and succeeds at being a fast paced thrill ride with plenty of terror, dread, and suspense! For more of my reviews, visit my blog at Xpresso Reads View all 12 comments.
Dec 11, Kiki rated it it was ok Shelves: Because you'll need to be, too make it through this book without rolling your eyes clean out of your skull. It's cheeky, really: It's the family business. There's a reluctant female hunter and a dorky dude hunter and they have to follow lore and clues in order to defeat a demon that's been going around killing their family members. I feel like there's a way for Eric Kripke to make some sort of money out of this - you know, Because you'll need to be, too make it through this book without rolling your eyes clean out of your skull.
I feel like there's a way for Eric Kripke to make some sort of money out of this - you know, since it's all been torn straight out of John Winchester's notebook of which there is an Unbreakable equivalent. I gave this book two stars because it was smooth and readable, not because there's any sort of value in it. It feels like gas station Dan Brown, even more than Dan Brown feels like gas station Wikipedia, and even more than Wikipedia feels like gas station Oxford Encyclopaedia.
The heroine is mad boring, and the love interests are so scarily unappealing, and the twin thing creeps me out. Even a girl torn between two brothers feels squicky, because it's this sexual dilemma all tied up in family. At least in the CW's Vampire Diaries it was made clear than the brother thing was weird, especially with Katherine, who tried to make a triad with Damon and Stefan may I boil myself?
It's just all so Cruel Intentions, with the sibling rivalry and its sexual undertone and this fabulously boring girl caught up in the middle of it. Kennedy is like a Tamagochi left out in the rain. And yet her time is in such demand! And the whole conspiracy treasure hunt thing revolves around her! Yawn, fucking yawn. I've had it with the Chosen One. Or at least the Chosen One in such an obvious and unoriginal context.
I fully believe that any trope, no matter how overused, can feel original if it's handled properly. This was not handled properly. This was handled like a hot bloody potato, literally thrown into the air and left to splat on the ground. Ugh, whatever. There are better things I could be doing than trying to justify this two-bit piece of fancy fanfiction.
I could be rolling around on the floor, covered in puppies. Now that's something I could get on board with. View all 4 comments. Dec 18, Rusty's Ghost Engine also known as It influences spirits that died horribly and have a hatred for the living they are known as vengeance spirits. The demon was released by the first legion members in an attempt to help them with their ultimate goal which was to destroy the illumi 2.
The demon was released by the first legion members in an attempt to help them with their ultimate goal which was to destroy the illuminati which according to this book was established in Bavaria by five guys in and they wanted to destroy the church and all governments to make a new world order, and these legion members were originally excommunicated priests.
The legion members didn't know the identities of those in the illuminati so they turned to a grimoire which was texts on how to communicate with angels or summon and command demons. They summoned a demon and each member had a part of that demons mark on their skin in an effort to bind it but things got out of control and they barley managed to banish it from the world and they that's why it's stuck between worlds. The mc sees an instruction slip in all the old legion papers for a device known as the shift which everyone thought would stop the demon for good and they went on a treasure hunt for parts each guarded by spirits but it turned out the spirits were guarding them for good reason because the device released the demon instead of banishing it.
It also turned out that the reason why all the current legion members were killed was because Jared had found the identity of each member and recorded the names and then the demon found out and sent the spirits in his command to kill them.
What a fast paced thrill ride! There is no shortage on action and suspense in this book and it's also not very long. Normally I like thrilling medium sized books a lot but this one seemed to lack character development and the way things were delivered felt very far fetched.
But I felt that didn't happen here. Maybe it was because this was too fast paced there wasn't really enough time or room to give deep descriptions. I also felt the fast paced nature of this book also ruined character development. I felt that the characters didn't have enough depth and they felt rather 2D like cardboard cutouts. Because it seemed the author wanted to rush this book, I never got to really know the characters but on saying that there are more books in the series so perhaps we find more background stories.
I did like the twist at the end and I have always been fond of these treasure hunt type of books, so I would recommend this book to those who are fond of watching ghost programmes and like that whole "I'm on a mission" feel in their YA books.
Aug 14, hayden marked it as to-read. I'm very excited to hear Garcia's and Stohl's writing styles when they're not co-writing. This review has been posted on Happy Indulgence. Check it out for more reviews! Unbreakable had many similarities to another medium that features two demon hunting brothers at its core — Supernatural. As the biggest Supernatural fan, it was easy to spot the similarites, and there were a lot of them.
The two ghost hunting brothers use rock salt, EMFs and a knife that can destroy a ghost. They go around saving people from ghosts and supernatural beings, and are a part of a secret order called the L This review has been posted on Happy Indulgence. They go around saving people from ghosts and supernatural beings, and are a part of a secret order called the Legion, and consult a journal for their supernatural findings, which is passed down from their parents.
Although almost every new book these days is based off other ideas, I have a big problem with books who rip off direct concepts without adding enough originality of its own.
Unbreakable combines the Supernatural concept with some light symbology and relic hunting. The two Lockhart brothers save Kennedy from an evil poltergiest, and induct her into the Legion with other members Priest and Alara. Coupled with ghosts in really scary places such as a haunted jail, bottom of a well and a haunted mansion, there were some deliciously creepy scenes which I really enjoyed.
What spoiled the atmosphere for me however, was the teen melodrama, mandatory love triangle, insta-love and whiny main character. It seems many YA books use this as a formula these days, and while I would have found it tolerable in the past, I have read enough of the same to find it predictable, irritating and run of the mill.
Kennedy is a character that had the potential to be awesome. Unfortunately, she spends most of the book preoccupied with her insecurities with fitting in with the rest of the group, which brother she liked better, and proving her worth as a Legion member. Her whining and immaturity got to me after a while. With fluttering eyelids, held gazes and a lot of arm touching, the whole insta love thing just got in the way of my enjoyment of the story. Relic hunting was a bit too easily solved as well, I would have liked a bit more build up or at least some form of difficulty.
If ancient relics are going to be hidden, hiding them just around the DC area just seemed a little too convenient. I received a review copy from Simon and Schuster Australia in exchange for an honest review.

Jun 02, Neil or bleed rated it really liked it Shelves: But, based on my experience reading Unbreakable, this book will give you the feeling of immense horror and dread because you can imagine that the ghosts described in here are in the back of the chair you've been sitting, waiting for you to look back.
And eventually, you look back and you will find that that is just your imagination so you heave a sigh of relief and you go back to reading but you're heart is thumping faster now than normal.
I really enjoyed reading it, even though, I'm scared half of the time. Kami is really good of creating creepy atmosphere enough for me to catch my breath for a minute before continue reading. The pacing is fast, in a good way, giving just enough information about The Legion and the lives of our characters but still leaving chunks and pieces of information for you to have to think of and as part of the mystery, I guess.
Speaking of characters, Kennedy, our main character, is not that badass since she doesn't have any knowledge that she belongs to a group that hunts ghosts but I am predicting she will be. She always worry and had issues on herself and with The Legion.
Yet, she has still the courage to fight and to help her friends and families. There are this twin, Lukas and Jared, which help Kennedy to be killed by a spirit and you guess it, this twin was somehow cause Kennedy to have some issues and confusion in her heart. And this romance doesn't work on me because it didn't work on the book, either.
It's not that bad but it has not been developed intricately, you doesn't feel the attachment. It was raw. It will be good there was no romance after all. Don't worry, it didn't affect so much the plot. Anyway, there's Alara, another interesting character. I thought she is one of the typical-irritable-and-ill-tempered-girls kind but I'm wrong, she's not but she really hated the color pink.
Priest, the fifth member of The Legion, however, is intelligent and cool.
You will suspect him as a son of Hephaestus. I really enjoyed his character here. Indeed, Unbreakable is a must read especially if you like ghost hunting and searching and discovery.

I had been looking forward to this book for ages and it was one of my most anticipated books of I am a huge fan of the Beautiful Creatures series and so I had astronomically high expectations for Unbreakable.
I was so convinced that it would be Check out Scott Reads It! I was so convinced that it would become one of my favorite YA novels, that is until I actually started to read Unbreakable. I enjoyed Unbreakable right from the start due to Garcia's compelling writing skills and her ability to create such a creepy atmosphere. Kami Garcia is talented and there's no denying that, but I really don't think Unbreakable really showcases all of her writing abilities to their utmost capabilities.
The beginning of the novel gave me an idea that the characters would be well-developed, but as the novel went on, it seemed that some of the characters morphed into personality-less husks.
Kennedy Waters is really unsure of herself at the beginning of Unbreakable and she is saved by Jared and Lukas Lockhart. I really liked Kennedy, but I kept waiting for that moment when Kennedy would accept who she is and take action.
When her mother dies, Kennedy really doesn't seem to be affected all too much by this death until later. I understand that Kennedy is blinded by her loss to see that she is a member of the Legion, but it was all too much.
The fact that Kennedy had to kept denying that she was apart of Legion and acted immature when the matter was brought up, really irked me.
I expected a little bit of denial, but for her to keep shooting down the idea so often really didn't work for me. I expected to see Kennedy more comfortable in her skin and more comfortable in Unbreakable, but the reader doesn't see much of a character progression on her part. When it comes to the brothers, Lukas and Jared Lockhart, I can only express statements of disappointment. I love the way Garcia and Stohl portrayed Ethan in Beautiful Creatures, but Lukas and Jared really lacked the believability that Ethan wore like a cloak.
Lukas and Jared's characters are never fully scoped out through the novel and I felt like I never really understood either character at all. Unless a name was mentioned, I couldn't really differentiate between Lukas and Jared too much because both characters just felt incomplete like they were missing something so essential.
Not to mention the fact that the brothers are constantly fighting like juveniles when there are bigger problems like demons and vengeance spirits. I understand that the brothers have an irreconcilable backstory, but the brothers attacked more like elementary school than mature teenagers.
The plot of Unbreakable is full of enough mysterious and creepy happenings to sate my macabre cravings. Garcia really knows how to weave a paranormal novel, making each encounter with a supernatural being exciting and intense. This book is insanely creepy, like leave your lights on at night kind of creepy and I appreciate all of the horror elements that went into this book.
Garcia never truly holds back when it comes to the horror and Unbreakable isn't for the faint at heart. I'm really not sure where the whole romance angle of this book is going at all.
There are only romantic tinges that really didn't stick out much in my mind. I'm not sure if there's going to be in future installments because the romance in this book doesn't really go anywhere. I won't mind reading a love triangle in this series, as long as it's executed well. Unbreakable really had promise and it's really a shame that I didn't enjoy it more.
I really loved the plot and the horror aspects, but the characters and the romance really fell short for me. I will be continuing this series because I know this series has tons of potential and I just love Garcia's writing.
I know I didn't enjoy Unbreakable as I would have liked, but I have a feeling that fans of horror novels will absolutely love it. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. Her face turned toward me. Her eyes were as empty as a doll's. Not being a great fan of Beautiful Creatures, I went into Unbreakable wearily and finished, rather pleased with the end result. Kennedy Waters has met a ghost and her mother has recently died.
And just when things are about to move along, she meets twin brothers, Jared and Lukas Lockheart. Soon, Kennedy finds out that her mother was part of a secret group called the Legion to fight a demon that dared to harm the world; however the world is no longer safe as the people of this group are all dead. And now it's time for Kennedy to take her mother's place.
Similar to The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Kami Garcia's latest novel will make your spine chill so ensure that you have the lights on when you're reading this!
I wouldn't say that I hated Kennedy, nonetheless she wasn't amazingly loveable. Ever since she was young, Kennedy discovered that she could memorise things by just looking at them for a few short minutes, a bit like a super photographic memory gift.
And until she meets Jared and Lukas, she never gave much thought about it, just kept a low profile so no one at school would take advantage of her ability to cheat tests. First impressions for Kennedy were pretty high, I liked how she didn't boast or use this ability to climb up the high-school social ladder and I really appreciated her thinking logic. Clearly intelligent. However when she was thrown into the world of paranormal, she became quite self-conscious about herself.
This, was not a major issue until three- quarters of the way in where she still had not stopped whining and instead with kicking some ass. Her constant questioning of belonging did begin to nag in the back of my mind. Overall, Kennedy was a bearable character that I hope will undergo some character development in the next instalment.
The supporting characters were one of the highlights. Alara had to be my favourite. She didn't care what people thought of her and was completely focused in the action scenes which was nearly every page , while badassery has been getting a little typical lately; Alara's was still thoroughly enjoyable.
We also have Priest who's like the tech-y guy in Unbreakable. Then there are the twins, Jared and Lukas who seem to have some silent argument going throughout the novel. I was really interesting to see what was behind that story. All characters were easily definable and unique. Despite the constant action, we do have a romance- which was not a big fan of. It felt more like an ornament on a Christmas tree that did not fit the rest of the colour scheme.
In other words, likeable but better off without. There is a hint of a love-triangle but it's minute and I do believe it's sort of solved near the end of Unbreakable. One of the best things in Unbreakable that I hope sustains through the entire series was the pace. Fast, lively, and absolutely heart-pounding. I am no thriller fan or horror for a fact but I still managed to love it. Especially at the start where it just jumps in and the feeling of not knowing what's happening with ghosts and cats being possessed- it's spontaneous.
An amazing type of spontaneous. A little predictable in some areas, with other flaws could've made this an underwhelming read but the constant action, suspense and horror will satisfy! The set up here was clearly for more instalments to come so Unbreakable does focus more on the character backgrounds a little more.
