Unseen the second book in the Unborn series by Amber Lynn Natusch continues the story of Khara and her discovery of who/what she is. Written in the same style as the first book, the characters are somewhat stuck in the same mold as they were in the first book. While only a brief period of time has passed since Unborn, the main characters, with the exception of Oz, have not changed that much and as a result the novel is depending upon the storyline to capture the readers attention. And, for the most part, it does.
The story is different enough to keep your attention and yet familiar enough not to require you to think too hard while reading the novel. To be honest, my novel reading time is done in 15 – 30 minutes chunks of time so the novel needs to allow me to read in small segments of time and not feel lost or out of touch. Unseen allows me to do that.
My biggest complaint is that the ending did not feel like an ending. Like some other novels I have read recently, Unborn seems like part of a larger novel and not necessarily a completely self contained story. The last chapter is most definitely the setup to the next novel and could have actually been used as the opening chapter of the subsequent novel.
That being said, it was still an enjoyable read and I look forward to the next novel in the series.
