Synopsis: Kennedy Waters lives a broken, but hopeful life with her single mother. Kennedy's mother is the only constant in her life since the day her dad walked out, but the day that Kennedy finds her mother dead is the day that her entire life shatters. Things spin out of control when two boys break into her bedroom in the middle of the night to save her from death at the hands of an evil spirit- the same one that killed her mother. Forced to leave the safe life she had, Kennedy teams up with a group of teenagers who claim that they are fated to come together and destroy an evil demon named Andras. Together, they must find the pieces that will unravel the evil, while Kennedy's own heart is tested as she encounters love, pain, and the demons in her own mind.
Kami Garcia, why do you do this to me???
Let me start off by saying that, wow. This book was seriously amazing. It had so many elements that I love to see in the perfect book, such as paranormal (the presence of ghosts and evil spirits), romance (Kennedy's indecision between Jared and Lukas), action (this book will leave you breathless for sure) and totally badass characters (pardon my language).
One of the things I loved most about Unbreakable was the non-stop action. There was not one second in this book where I was bored, or felt the urge to skim pages. The scenes, along with the setting, changed at the perfect pace. I absolutely adored the way Kami wrote in different locations, from the bottom of a dark well, to the very interior of an abandoned orphanage.
The characters. Wow, they were probably one of the best butt-kicking groups I've ever read about in a novel. There was diversity, and individualism among the characters, but there was also a tight sense of loyalty among them. I especially loved how Kami gave each and every one of the characters their own shining personalities, even though Kennedy was the main protagonist.
I wasn't really sure what to expect with this cover, because it doesn't really give away anything about the story, but that was perfect. When you actually start reading it, all the elements that were kept hidden from the cover will jump out and you and blow you away.
Unbreakable made me feel all the emotions. I have to admit, I got goosebumps every time Kami added in a new evil spirit or maniacal ghosts. And THE ENDING. Man, that ending really killed me. I don't want to spoil anything because you definitely want to read this book yourself, but I ABSOLUTELY NEED THE SECOND BOOK. Like, ASAP.
Conclusion: Spine-tingling and gripping, Unbreakable is an action-packed read that will leave you dying for more. I highly highly recommend this book:)
