Summary from Goodreads:

It’s time to choose sides….

On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.

But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?

A darkly humorous take on Gothic romance, Sarah Rees Brennan’s Lynburn Legacy weaves together the tale of a heroine desperate to protect those she loves, two boys hoping to be saved, and the magical forces that will shape their destiny.

review

  • UGH JARED.
  •  I do like how well he knows Kami. There’s a really great scene he gives her a weapon rather than rescues her. It’s really the best thing he can do for her.
  • I’m not sure how I feel about the shift from book 1 to this. It still seems so odd and almost off putting that Rob is so evil.
  • I forgot to write my thoughts down after I read the book so this is all I got.

The bottom line? I’m looking forward to more sass and adventure. On to book 3!

  1. Oh yeah, it did seem weird how super super evil Rob got. I forgot about that! It was a strange little character shift. (This is the benefit of tearing through books at top speed — little character nitpicks like this got lost in the shuffle!)
