EXCLUSIVE – The Legion: Book 2 Title & Cover Reveal

I’ve been waiting to share this for so long, and I finally have the green light! Exclusively for my readers (that means YOU), I’m going rogue and giving you the FIRST LOOK at the cover of the sequel to UNBREAKABLE! And the title is…

UNMARKED

And even better, take a look at the cover!

UNMARKED Cover

UNMARKED is Book 2 in The Legion series & it releases on October 7, 2014. I’m honored to have a BRAND NEW BLURB from the insanely talented Ransom Riggs, author of MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN and HOLLOW CITY. Here’s what he has to say about UNMARKED:

“Smart, fun, and scary as hell. Unmarked grabs you from page one and never lets go. A rare sequel that surpasses the original.”

— Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Hollow City

Wondering what UNMARKED is about? Here’s the jacket copy:

The heart-pounding sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Unbreakable, by New York Times bestselling Beautiful Creatures co-author Kami Garcia.

He is here… and he could be anyone.

Kennedy Waters lives in a world where vengeance spirits kill, ghosts keep secrets, and a demon walks among us–a demon she accidentally set free. 

Now Kennedy and the other Legion members–Alara, Priest, Lukas, and Jared–have to hunt him down. As they learn more about the history of the Legion and the Illuminati, Kennedy realizes that the greatest mystery of all does not belong to any secret order, but to her own family. With the clock ticking and the life of someone she loves hanging in the balance, Kennedy has to ask the question she fears most: what is it about her past that has left her Unmarked?

I can’t wait for you to read UNMARKED! If you haven’t read UNBREAKABLE, the first book in the series, and you’re wondering what it’s about, read on:

Kami Garcia/Unbreakable

When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, she doesn’t realize that paranormal forces are responsible–not until mysterious identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a deadly spirit sent to kill her.

Kennedy learns that her mother’s death was no accident, and now she has to take her place in the Legion of the Black Dove–a secret society formed to protect the world from a vengeful demon. A society left in the hands of a misfit group of teens with unique skills: Jared, combat trained, with a temper to match; Lukas, rogue hacker and code breaker; Alara, whose attitude is as powerful as her voodoo protections; and Priest, an engineer capable of making a weapon out of a soda can.

As the teens use their individual talents to battle paranormal entities, they earn their rightful places in the Legion–except for Kennedy, who is left wondering if she is truly one of them.

Can she stay alive long enough to find out–without losing her heart in the process?

Praise for Unbreakable:

“Tense and deliciously twisty, Unbreakable is a breath-stealing midnight run through some of the creepiest locales I’ve seen rendered in fiction. . . . It’s about forgiveness and redemption, love and loss, and it’s anything but predictable. I loved it.”

—Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Unbreakable is a fast-paced, relentless race through a world of demons and spirits, darkness and light — and the finish line comes when you least expect it. I can’t wait for the next book!”

—Ally Condie, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Matched trilogy

Unbreakable is a fantastic adventure — strong, engaging characters and a romance to die for. The twists will leave you breathless.”

—Rachel Caine, New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires series

“Paranormal action, secret societies, and romantic suspense! The Legion series is now definitely on my must-read list..”

—Richelle Mead, #1 international bestselling author of Vampire Academy

Unbreakable is a haunting, chilling tale that reminded me of Stephen King and Dean Koontz. Creepy places, believable characters with some of the best teen dialogue I’ve seen, and plenty of suspense. I loved it.”

–James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series

Unbreakable keeps you engaged and on edge. I found myself . . . not wanting to put this book down.”

—Jason Hawes, Co-Creator/Star of “Ghost Hunters” & NYT Bestselling Author

“An eerily fun and emotionally accurate venture into the complex layers of paranormal encounters from both sides. Looking forward to more!”

—Grant Wilson, Co-Creator/Star of “Ghost Hunters” & NYT Bestselling Author
