Supernatural meets The Da Vinci Code in this action-packed paranormal thriller, the first book in a new series from New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia.Note: There is swearing in this review. A lot. Read with discretion.
I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me.
When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.
Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.
Suspense, romance, and the paranormal meet in this chilling urban fantasy, the first book in a new series from Kami Garcia, bestselling coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures novels.
Holy shit balls. This was so good. Seriously. I did NOT expect that going into this good, but now I can honestly say that I am pleasantly surprised. I haven't read Beautiful Creatures but boy am I going to now.
There are only two things that I really disliked about this book. One being the fact that even though there was so much proof weaved throughout this novel that Kennedy is apart of the Legion, she still refused to believe it time and time again. like, girl, get a fucking hold of yourself, because believe it or not, you are a bamf demon slaying bitch, okay? Okay.
The other two things they really pissed me off were Jared and Lukas. Now don't get me wrong. The are hot, and I like them just fine. But really, characterization is key. Jared and Lukas were basically the same character but with different names. If you took one hot seventeen year old boy and split him in two, you would get Jared and Lukas. Basically the grumpy, I-hate-life part of this teenage boy would be Jared, and the let's-go-ride-a-fucking-pony side of the teenage boy would be Lukas. Plus they look the same. Seriously, I don't get why Kennedy would prefer one over the other. Is she the type of girl that likes a challenge? Her thoughts in this book say no, but her choices say yes. I don't know what to think.
I have to admit, though, that the ending pissed me off. Not in the I hate it sort of way but more in the why are you doing this to me you author you kind of way. Like seriously. You get me to ship Jaredy after the kiss scene, and then you tear them apart. Then you get them back together ONLY TO TEAR THEM APART AGAIN.
I'm sorry but do you not care about my heart or what?
Sorry. I just got really angry there. Like really. Jaredy's romance isn't even that developed yet, but you still insist on tearing them apart and making me even angrier? Can't there just be a happy ending?
I JUST WANT A HAPPY ENDING GOSH.
