What I ReadUnbreakable by Kami Garcia

Find It @YCLD:

What It's About: Seventeen-year-old Kennedy Waters discovers that she might be part of a secret society that was formed ages ago to fight the Illuminati.  The group, called the Legion, are set out to fight a powerful demon that is anxious to be released to wreak havoc upon the world.  Kennedy and her new group of friends, who are trained demon hunters, must set out to make sure that the demon and all his evil brothers and sisters are not unleashed.

What I Thought: Reader’s advisory: Do not read at night if you’re prone to nightmares! What a chilling and terrifying tale and it is amazing.  The characters are believable and charming.  Kennedy is a teenage protagonist that most teen girls will be able to relate to, with insecurities and a confusing love situation.  The twin brothers Jared and Lukas each make you fall in love with them for different reasons and Alara makes you want to wear combat boots and fight demons.  Priest is like the little brother you wish you had.  It’s an interesting play on the Illuminati as enemies to be defeated.  The group’s encounter with the different vengeance ghosts and deadly spirits are not for the faint of heart.  Fans of Supernatural will find several similarities.
