Review: The Lynburn Legacy Novellas by Sarah Rees Brennan

Since the gals and I are reading Unspoken for our On the Same Page feature this month, I thought I would read and review the novellas to see what I am in for! It is safe to say that I am pretty excited for this series after what these novellas contained!

For readers who are looking for a novella that will only add mystery and pique your interest of the series more, read these novellas! This novellas gives the reader more insight into Jared’s character, and even though we haven’t met Kami yet, we are able to see her through is eyes and it is rather beautiful. We are also able to see Jared’s family dynamic, which was really rather sad but still so mysterious. Honestly after finishing this novella all I could think of was how quickly I needed to read this series. I had held off because I heard that the first two books had crazy cliffhangers, but thankfully the end is near so I can pick them up and binge read!

It was not hard to fall for Kami while reading this novella, she has definite spunk, and that is a gal right after my own heart! I love that the reader was able to see into her mind a little bit to see how much Jared means to her – and what she thinks she means to him. It set things up nicely but again just served as a bigger mystery to me having yet to read the series. The secondary characters are also pretty stellar and it is interesting to see how outsiders view Kami and her best friend Angela, it seems some people are mistaken at the very awesome and very large personality that is hiding within Kami! Overall, I can’t stop thinking about this novella months after I read it and it just further convinced me that I need to read the series as soon as possible.

Stay tuned for my special post on Unspoken, the first novel in the Lynburn Legacy for this month’s On the Same Page feature!

  1. I love the titles of these novellas! I also think it’s a wonderful thing that they left you feeling curious about the characters, and ready to start the series. This is definitely what I think prequel novellas are supposed to be for — so yay for these two. You’re making me super curious about the series, and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the novels!
