Cameron has a secret power that she thought not many other people would possess. Cameron can read minds! When Cameron realizes a really good friend of hers is dating a murderer, she has to warn her. Cameron doesn’t know what exactly she should do, until the new guy in town comes to help her. The new guy, Lewis takes her to a place where she can learn more about her powers. When she arrives there, secrets are suddenly revealed, and she learn to only trust herself.
The beginning of this book immediately grabs your attention with “The man sitting across from me at the cafe was thinking about murdering his wife,” (Brighton, pg.1). I think that the format of the book is well plotted, especially with all the secrets coming here and there. Throughout the entire book, I was screaming in my head, don’t trust him, but Cameron just wouldn’t listen…. I love her kind heart, it was one of the only things she would listen to. My favorite character is Maddox, you’ll find him later in the book. He’s so mysterious, and I love how at the ending it seemed like there is something more going on between them. The series is so addicting! As soon as I finished the first book, I immediately got addicted to the series. I didn’t think I had any money on amazon, but when I realized I did, I started reading and didn’t stop!

When Kennedy accidentally releases a demon into the world, life goes crazy. Murderers everywhere, violence and hate spread, love is torn apart. Kennedy is now in custody of her aunt, who sends her to Winterhaven Academy. Luckily she is rescued by her boyfriend, Jared. Kennedy, Jared, and the rest of the legion members try to stop the demonic activity. New acquaintances are made, secrets are revealed, and lives are destroyed.
I love how the beginning of the book does a flash forward, grabbing your attention. The middle of the book did get very boring, but here and there something would pop up. I hated how Kennedy’s aunt died, but I loved how Alara and Kennedy’s aunt’s dog had a connection. On the cover it has a review that says “A rare sequel that surpasses the original.”-Ransom Riggs, Hollow City. I have to disagree with that, although this book was great, it couldn’t beat Unbreakable. *SPOILER* (skip to the unitalicized part if you don’t want to read it) I love how Kennedy is actually part of the illuminati! The relationship between Kennedy’s Parents is like the relationship in the mind readers series. They both parted ways because they were on opposite sides. I would have reviewed Unbreakable, but I read Unmarked right after, and the ideas between the books were combined. I learned about the series from my school library, every year my state picks 10-20 for elementary schools, middle school, and high school, and features these books. Unbreakable, is one of these books. I don’t like the cover design for both books, I think it could be better. But, the saying on the inside of the book “Protect Yourself. What you Can’t See Can Hurt You. ” makes up for it.

I really got in to this series, because of all the dramatic events and injuries. I love all the action this book has, and I love the setting. My favorite character was Jackson Hunt because of his crazy backstory. When I found out that Jackson had been in the yearbook for 50 years, I thought he was some kind of spirit. i would have never thought he was a trapped demon! I love all the secrets and mysteries in the book! The coolest part about the first 3 books is that they are free on kindle! I cant wait to get the 4th book!

The girl needs to find the heart of the schism to fix it, but it’s hard to concentrate when her boyfriend just died and then tried to attack her.

I can’t wait to finish reading the book when it comes out. Thanks to Laurie Blake, I was able to review the first 3 chapters and post a review about them on my blog! I like this book because it’s a scary novel that gives the right amount of horror, the kind that makes the book interesting and scary without keeping you scared at night. It is a mix of sci-fi, horror and mystery, so it is enjoyable for anyone who prefers those genres. I’m excited to see what happens next in this new novel by Laurie Blake.I am curios to find out how the new girl handles her new magic powers, if she can actually handle them without anything going out of control. This series reminds me of one of my favorite series, A Series of Unfortunate Events with the characters in deadly situations but they always manage to survive, I hope these characters can use their skills to survive too.

Hester tries to dig deep into her family’s history and when she finally learns the truth, she learns that the truth can put her in danger. In the end, Hester saves her friends, her hometown, and maybe she may have even save herself, and the rest of her family.
I really enjoyed this book because it was the mystery thriller I have been waiting to read. I like how the author plotted the mystery in this book. I can tell that Elizabeth Fama spent time creating the mystery in this book. She sets the scene well in the beginning of the book, but the it was a little confusing to me. The author used descriptive words to set a vision in your head. If there was anything I would change about this book, I think it would be more interesting if the author used a different point of view instead of first person.
Elizabeth Fama and Eric Fama Cochrane joined to write a graphic novel prequel called Treasure Game.
