Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) by Sarah Rees Brennan
Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1)

Mephistia, January 30, 2013

I really enjoyed this book. I was a little ambivalent initially, to be honest -- I *loved* the Demon's Lexicon series, so at that point I wasn't 100% sure whether it was the author's skill at writing that pulled me in, or if the Demon's Lexicon had been a lucky one-off series that just happened to have everything I enjoy in a book.

Nope, it turns out it's the author's skill at writing that brings me in. I love the characters she builds, how they're complex and realistic and humorous. I love the way she mixes the supernatural with the mundane. I love the sense of joy and laughter that seems to ooze from her writing. I love the way she doesn't cop out and write what's easy or popular -- she has multiple themes and plotlines, the plot is quick and fast-paced, and she writes about themes like friendship and love in a very relatable way. Overall, she's just a brilliant author with a great writing style and I look forward to the next book in the Lynburn Legacy.
