First, I just have to say that I love this 2 book series; I can’t recommend it enough! Unraveling completely blew me away, and I’ll admit I was a bit worried about Unbreakable not living up to my expectations, but it was fantastic. Unbreakable picks up a few months after the first books ends, and I was able to instantly reconnect with the characters and the story.
The entire book takes place in 7 days, with each chapter counting down, just like in Unraveling. People in Janelle’s universe are mysteriously disappearing, and Taylor Barclay returns to ask for Janelle’s help. Janelle must team up with IA agent Barclay to prove Ben’s innocence in a human trafficking ring, before the IA comes after the people he cares about, including Janelle.
I really loved getting to know Barclay more. I despised him in Unraveling, but he really surprised me in Unbreakable. Not only did Barclay become likeable, I found myself falling for him! My only complaint is that there wasn’t enough Ben! He doesn’t appear until almost half way through the book… For that reason, I’m really grateful for the novella, Undone that includes scenes from Ben’s perspective and sets up Unbreakable.
I highly recommend the Unraveling series! The heroine, Janelle, is kick-ass and everything you want in a protagonist. The series is packed with action and suspense, with just the right amount of romance mixed in. I can’t wait to read whatever Elizabeth Norris has in store for us next!
