I never believed in ghosts.
Until one tried to kill me.

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 her 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 whose five members were all murdered on the same night, leaving the Legion in the hands of the next generation: a misfit group with unique skills.

As the new members race to find the only weapon capable of destroying the demon, they use their individual talents to battle paranormal entities and earn their rightful place in the Legion--except for Kennedy.

If she is truly the missing piece of the puzzle, can she stay alive long enough to find out--without losing her heart in the process?

Protect Yourself.
What you can''t see CAN hurt you.

My thoughts:

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 plotline 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.
