Rating: It was amazing!

Imagine if you had a voice in your head. What if it spoke to you 24/7, telling you its deepest secrets, its every thought, conveying all of its emotions constantly, and reading your mind too? Would it be a comfort to you, or a menace? There is no privacy, no way to escape, you can only grin and bear it. This is Kami Glass’s problem. Ever since she was born, she has had an imaginary friend, Jared. Jared is always there for her, even when she doesn’t want him to be. Unfortunately, Kami never grew out of her little obsession. She learned to stop talking about him though, as you tend to lose friends fast when you tell them you hold full conversations in your head with an imaginary voice. Kami lives in the little town of Sorry-in-the-Vale, England. There was once a powerful family that ruled the town, the Lynburns, but they had moved away before Kami was born. Now, many years later, the Lynburns are back. The family moves back into their ancestral home, the Aurimere, which overlooks the whole town. Rosalind and Lillian Lynburn, twin sisters, return to Sorry-in-the-Vale with their sons, Ash and... Jared. Kami dismisses this as a mere coincidence; after all, Jared is a fairly common name. But her entire life is flipped upside down by a simple ride in an elevator with a stranger, the new boy in town. Soon a terrible realization is made, that this is Jared, her Jared, real and tangible, standing in front of her. And that isn’t even the worst of it. Soon, rumors are flying, and an attempt on Kami’s life is made. Secrets rule the town, magic is in the air, and so are evil intentions. This is no longer a childhood fantasy... It’s a teens nightmare. This is an interesting Gothic-style romance with a delightfully sinister touch of magic and a good dose of humor as well. If you were a fan of The Mortal Instruments or the Twilight series, or of action/adventure, this book will probably appeal to you. “Unspoken” is the first book of the Lynburn Legacy Trilogy.

I would recommend this to: Teens/YA
