Unbreakable

Reviewed by:

Unbreakable is a fast-paced thrill of a ride that will grab and hold onto you from the very first page. Within only a couple of pages 17 year-old Kennedy Waters meets a scary ghost girl in a graveyard, her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, her cat (possessed by a vengeance spirit) tries to kill her, and she meets gorgeous twins Jared and Lukas when they break into her house to save her from the previously mentioned vengeance spirit. Kennedy didn’t even believe in the supernatural and now she must work with Lukas, Jared and two other teens – the only surviving members of the Legion of the Black Dove – to try and destroy the demon Andras before he rises and destroys the world. But before they can destroy Andras, the teens must assemble the Shift, the only known weapon that can destroy the demon. In their search for the missing pieces, Kennedy and the Legion members visit numerous haunted locations, such as a haunted mansion, an abandoned magic shop, and even an old prison and must find and defeat the violent ghosts that guard the pieces that they are looking for. In Garcia’s solo debut novel there is suspense lurking on every page and a love triangle between Kennedy, Lukas, and Jared that only adds to the suspense. Just when the novel’s plot line seems to be turning predictable Garcia has written an surprise ending with a twist no one will see coming and that leaves the reader waiting anxiously for the next installment to this ghostly series.
