    1 thought on “Unbreakable

    1. I should have known better, from the mention of The DaVinci Code in the blurb.Let's start from the beginning. Supernatural clone? I have no problem with that. A talented writer can work with a well-used plot and make it their own, with a compelling plot, with complex characters, with a beautifully wrought romance.With that said, I am pleased to tell you that you don't have to waste your time on this book. Look elsewhere for your paranormal ghost-busting fix. Hell, just stick to watching Supernat [...]

    2. fantastic read! Read the whole book yesterday! It is compared to Buffy and supernatural and i can completely see why! BLOODYBRILLIANT

    3. I received this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.Actual rating: 0.5 stars because I liked two scenes. Alright guys! There’s this story out about two brothers who go around killing ghosts and demons because it’s the family business and was something passed on through the generations.Occasionally they recruit help in the form of a quirky genius who’s far too good for school. And a woman who may not have chosen demon hunter as her first job, but falls into it with a vengea [...]

    4. What a nail biter! Unbreakable has a creepy cover with an equally freaky story. For all of you supernatural thriller fans out there this one is not to be missed!I made the mistake of starting this book at midnight; a book that has crazy happenings and intense goosebump-worthy scenes right from the beginning. Every page had me delving deeper and deeper under the covers just so I would stop imagining hellish demon ghosts at the foot of my bed! And by hellish demon ghosts I mean exactly that! You w [...]

    5. Because you'll need to be, too make it through this book without rolling your eyes clean out of your skull. It's cheeky, really: two brothers, saving people, hunting things. It's the family business. One of them is named JARED. There's a reluctant female hunter and a dorky dude hunter and they have to follow lore and clues in order to defeat a demon that's been going around killing their family members. I feel like there's a way for Eric Kripke to make some sort of money out of this - you know, [...]

    6. 2.5 stars spoiler: (view spoiler)[The legion is basically a society consisting of five people who are trying to control damage caused by a demon that is stuck between worlds and would like nothing more than to enter this world and open a gateway to hell. It influences spirits that died horribly and have a hatred for the living they are known as vengeance spirits. The demon was released by the first legion members in an attempt to help them with their ultimate goal which was to destroy the illumi [...]

    7. This review has been posted on Happy Indulgence. Check it out for more reviews! Unbreakable had many similarities to another medium that features two demon hunting brothers at its core – Supernatural.As the biggest Supernatural fan, it was easy to spot the similarites, and there were a lot of them. The two ghost hunting brothers use rock salt, EMFs and a knife that can destroy a ghost. They go around saving people from ghosts and supernatural beings, and are a part of a secret order called the [...]

    8. Forget what I said before! I need this cover in my life O.oNow that the summary is more elaborate, well, I can dig it. Hopefully it will sweep us off our feet!Old Update:The summary doesn't give me anything new. A secret societ, created 200 years ago, a demon needs to be vanquished yeah yeah, what else is new?Hopefully a new more in depth summary will be out soon.

    9. Reading the blurb, Unbreakable has been related to Supernatural and The Da Vinci Code. Unfortunately, I didn't have any chance to watch those two (and read for The Da Vinci Code) so I can't compare them. But, based on my experience reading Unbreakable, this book will give you the feeling of immense horror and dread because you can imagine that the ghosts described in here are in the back of the chair you've been sitting, waiting for you to look back. And eventually, you look back and you will fi [...]

    10. Check out Scott Reads It! for reviews, giveaways, & more!Looking back on Unbreakable, I'm overcome with a sense of disappointment at both myself and the book itself. I had been looking forward to this book for ages and it was one of my most anticipated books of 2013. I am a huge fan of the Beautiful Creatures series and so I had astronomically high expectations for Unbreakable. In other words, I was 100% convinced that I would love this book to no end. I was so convinced that it would become [...]

    11. See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Simon and Schuster Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. Her face turned toward me.Her eyes were as empty as a doll's.Not being a great fan of Beautiful Creatures, I went into Unbreakable wearily and finished, rather pleased with the end result.Kennedy Waters has met a ghost and her mother has recently died. And just when things are about to move along, she meets twin brothers, Jared and Lukas L [...]

    12. I'm a huge fan of Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I can tell that the author Kami Garcia is too. The twisting turns the plot took, the believable and complex characters, the memorable dialog and the creepy story - made me excited for the next page! I can't wait to see what adventures the entire series will reveal. It's rare to find an author who truly gets teen characters and what they go through. Kami understands that world, while injecting some truly terror-filled moments into a [...]

    13. If you read the reviews of this book you would think its worst offense is being a blatant rip-off of Supernatural. This is not the case. In fact, that’s probably the least offensive about this book, in all actuality. Because Supernatural is amazing. And even a blatant rip-off would hold some measure of worth. No, the real problem with this book is much worse. And multifaceted. It’s several things, all at once, colliding into one horrible, weak book.Earlier this year I read Stohl’s Icons. I [...]

    14. 4.5/5 starsUnbreakable was my last try at reading anything by the Beautiful Creatures author duo. I've tried Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margret Stohl as well as ICONS by Margret Stohl but really disliked both. Which is why I was a bit hesitant in starting Unbreakable, especially with the "twin brothers" plot line which obviously involved a love triangle… *sigh* KIDDING! I LOVED Unbreakable. It got me out of a reading slump and I somehow managed to make time to read it in a couple [...]

    15. Kennedy Waters is just a normal 17 year old girl, or she thought so anyway. She never really felt, though, like she belonged at school. Her best friend, Elle is the one with the bubbly personality. The one who likes to flirt with boys. Kennedy is happiest when she is drawing or painting. And there is one other thing that sets her apart from others her age, she has a photographic memory. But, her life is pretty normal. She lives with her Mom who she loves with all her heart. But one night, that l [...]

    16. 3.5 stars.I didn't know what to expect when I opened Unbreakable, I knew there will be a group of teenagers who act as demon huntersbut that is pretty much all that I knew. I also have to admit teenage demon hunters really isn't my thing, but for the sake of the author, Kami Garcia, I decided to give this book a shot.Turns out this book is quite a mixed bag, the demon-hunting plot is only so-and-so, not to mention I don't like the romance between the two teenagers (you will know which two of the [...]

    17. I wasn't expecting this mystery surrounding a secret society combined with ghost busting. And I was happy that it was something different from all the other books that I read. I rather enjoyed it minus the lovey dovey romance.There were scary instances where I felt creeped out. I could imagine everything happening like watching a movie in front of my eyes. I don't like getting scared in books and it doesn't help that I read this in two sittings well into the night. The pacing is fast, and I love [...]

    18. Review also posted at Ja čitam, a ti? Another big name in our little bookish world is for sure Kami Garcia. Even though her Beautiful Creatures series wasn't something I enjoyed, still I wanted to give her books another chance especially after hearing some interesting things about this series. So when it appeared as read-now on NetGalley I said why not! I wish I didn't, though. I'm not sure should I pull out I'm too old for this or this is not for me card or it's not only that. There is mix of [...]

    19. First I have to say that Kami Garcia knows how to write a story and keep you hooked to the very end. Lord I have never read a book so fast because I needed to get to the end without having to peek and ruin it for me. I was so engrossed in this book and the world that kami has provided for us. I mean the book starts out with I never believed in ghosts until one tried to kill me with that kind of opener who the heck can say no to this book? I could not because I was caught and sucked in hook line [...]

    20. I wasn’t exactly sure about what it was in this book that didn’t work for me, but a friend of mine pointed it out… and I can’t help but agree: it’s Supernatural rip off from the set up, to the characters, to the very ending! Except that this one failed in one key way: the Winchester brothers have personality, have heart it’s not all chases and crazy ass demons to beat, the brothers have this ineffable thing that always has me rooting for them. Not the case here.There’s a girl and t [...]

    21. Kennedy’s life changes when her mom dies, her life goes into a do-or-die tailspin the night Jared and Lukas Lockhart storm her bedroom. Thus, begins the story of Kennedy and her immediate immersion into the Legion.The Legion is an ancient secret society made of up five members, who must battle a powerful demon to protect the world as we know it. When I was ‘discussing’ this book on twitter a friend mentioned Scooby and the gang, and folks he was spot on – teens battling evil. This was no [...]

    22. Huh Kami Garcia wrote a new book. I'll give it a try. But the synopsis sounds similar to the beginning of the Mortal Instruments series

    23. 3.5 starsKennedy has been afraid of the dark since she was a little girl, but that fear is nothing compared to coming home one night and finding her mother's lifeless body on the bed. Weeks later, on her last night at home before leaving for boarding school, Kennedy woke up in a strangled scream as two guys storm in her bedroom destroying a vindictive spirit that was trying to kill her. The same spirit that may have killed her mother. Kennedy knew that her life would never be the same without he [...]

    24. So instead of a review, I took a (my first) shot at writing fanfiction. OF Supernatural. To elucidate my feelings on the book through Dean's torture. Not for little munchkins.(Set sometime during Season 7)A good day to die. Sunbeams drilling into Dean's eyes, birds twittering like he's a fucking little elf, Sam being a little bitch again. "Dean you don't understand! It's not healthy to obsess over your fan fiction unless you're Mark Gatiss or God forbid! Castiel, not while you're you""Quite bein [...]

    25. This and other reviews can be found on Reading Between ClassesCover Impressions: I am a little underwhelmed by this cover. I like the font and the effect but I feel like maybe it needs another color or two - it is just too much of the same And it certainly doesn't scream "ghost hunters". The Gist: Kennedy hadn't planned on spending her evening traipsing through a graveyard, searching for her cat and she certainly hadn't planned on encountering a girl who looks oddly out of place - and floats. Wh [...]

    26. Demons, death, haunted houses, and dark, dark spooky “Don’t-go-down-there!” basements! Unbreakable by Kami Garcia has them all. A book filled to the brim with spooks and chills. Perhaps a little too full.Kennedy’s world changes in a hurry when her Mom dies. Her world shifts from school, art, and friends to weird and scary. And by weird and scary—I mean demons attacking! Twin badass hotties come to her rescue though. Wait. Let me say that again—Twin hotties! *grins* Anywho… The brot [...]

    27. Source: I received a copy from Hachette and Little Brown for an honest and unbiased review.Note: These are my personal opinions. I received no outside person comments or opinions.Let me first start off by saying that this would have been a solid 5 star book if I could have been able to tell the brothers apart and if Kennedy was a strong female heroine. This book lacked good character plotting for important characters. In my opinion, the side characters were more well developed. But other than my [...]
