"Who will be the sacrifice?"
Kami is linked to two boys. One through a strong magical bond, and the other through unforgettable love. With Jared missing for months and presumed dead, Kami must rely on her link with Ash for the strength to face the evil spreading through her town. Working with her friends, Kami uncovers a secret that might be the key to saving the town. But with knowledge comes responsibility and a painful choice. A choice that will risk not only Kami's life, but also the lives of those she loves most.
As coauthor with Cassandra Clare of the bestselling Bane Chronicles, Sarah Rees Brennan has mastered the art of the page-turner.
A strong example of diversity in YA, the Lynburn Legacy not only introduces Kami Glass, a half-Japanese teen, but also includes an LGBTQ romance as one of the subplots.
