Unspoken is the first in a Young Adult fantasy trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan the novel is about budding journalist Kami Glass who talks to a boy in her head – that’s right this chic has an imaginary friend, named Jared but it’s when Jared turns out to be a real living, breathing person (and not a medical condition) that things get complicated. Set in a quirky English village called Sorry-in-the-Vale surrounded by woods and long winding rivers this book sure does do erring well it that has the reader questioning everything they think they know about the characters all the while dying to know what’s going happen next.
Everything changes when the creepy Lynburn family turn up scaring the villages with their town history the Lynburn’s seem to think that Sorry-in-the-Vale belongs to them, that they own it, own the people and worse own Kami’s family.
When mysterious bloody goings on start to happen in the woods all seem to point the finger at the Lyburn’s but Kami has other ideas she has to find an alternative now that her imaginary friend is real and what’s more a Lynburn.
This book is so great, it’s so different from any other YA I have read recently the romance is kept to a tiny portion of the book which considering this book is a trilogy I think is great it just kept me wanting more. It has a really great gothic tone to the book which really helped me feel connected to the characters and their surroundings especially the Lynburn’s and their creepy Gothic house.
The last thing (I don’t want spoil anyone) but the ending was fantastic it really had me wanting me more and to me this novel the screams the beginning to a great series.
