This much anticipated sequel to the New York Times Bestseller Impossible a fantasy full of suspense, mystery, and romance will appeal to fans of Beautiful Creatures, Raven Boys, and Wicked Lovely.

Fenella was the first Scarborough girl to be cursed, hundreds of years ago, and she has been trapped in the faerie realm ever since, forced to watch generations of daughters try to break this same faerie curse that has enslaved them all. But now Fenella’s descendant, Lucy, has accomplished the impossible and broken the curse, so why is Fenella still trapped in Faerie?

In her desperation, Fenella makes a deal with the faerie queen: If she can accomplish three acts of destruction, she will be free, at last, to die.  What she doesn't realize is that these acts must be aimed at her own family and if she fails, the consequences will be dire, for all of the Scarborough girls.

How can she possibly choose to hurt her own cherished family not to mention the new man whom she’s surprised to find herself falling in love with? But if she doesn’t go through with the tasks, how will she manage to save her dear ones?

I read Impossible before I was a blogger and really loved the book. The idea of curse, handed down from generation to generation only to be broken by crazy, impossible tasks. When  I stepped back into this world to find yet another curse in act, I couldn’t wait to see how this story will go.

Plot: While in Impossible,  Lucy has to conquer impossible task. Fenella on the other hand has to destroy. I think  this plot is really active and engaging. Immediately I was able to be in Fenella shoes and hear her pleas for freedom. Like her, I would do anything to have peace. Every chapter moved with against time to do harm on the ones she loves.

Love: Never in the beginning of the book did I think Fenella would have a love interest. The plot itself in breaking the curse, is interesting enough. Though this love is like the icing on the cake. This love interest held me cause it went deeper than what is on the surface. The connection with fae and watching them fall in love yet destroy everything in front of them has got to be insane. Yet it happen right before my eyes with such attraction that I could not stop reading.

TOO nice Fae: My only beef is….Since when do Fae do nice? I felt like even though they were tricky enough, they still acted a little too nice for my liking. I know Fae to be tricky and crude. They just seemed like they wanted to help Fenella. And that didn’t really make sense to me.

Overall, this is a fantastic story. It held my interest and kept me entertained throughout the entire story. It riled up my feelings and gave me hope.  Unthinkable is an sensational effective tale of destroying what you love yet finding the truth. A work of mythological creatures and great writing, Unthinkable is an great experience.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I haven’t seen any other reviews for this book, but it sounds like a good series. Huh, nice fae? That does seem odd. I’s sure it works for the story though. Great review hon!!

    I haven’t read any of her books and I guess I had no idea what they were about. I had just assumed they were contemporary. They sound very different though!

    Ooh this sounds like a series I’d like. I love book about curses and stuff like that. I have seen this book around but I don’t recall seeing much about Impossible it was probably before my time as a blogger >.< I will have to keep an eye out for it!

  6. I’ve read books where the fae are nice, but usually tricky is the norm. 🙂 This series looks great and I’m glad that the second one rocked. Must read these.
