Unbreakable, the sequel to Elizabeth Norris’ Unraveling, blends science fiction, mystery, and romance into a thrilling story YA listeners won’t be able to put down.
It’s been four months since Janelle Tenner stopped the Earth’s destruction with the help of Ben, the boy who resurrected her after she died. Ben is gone now - disappeared through a portal to his home world.
Even though Ben broke her heart, Janelle refuses to believe it when Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay tells her Ben is suspected of running a human-trafficking ring across several universes. She vows to uncover the true culprit and rescue the people who have been sold into slavery on alternate Earths - not to mention find Ben and prove his innocence.
In addition to Ben, Barclay, and Janelle, Unbreakable brings back fan-favorite characters Elijah and Cecily in this action-packed thriller.

This story is quite well and tightly woven. Ms Norris has spun a tale that is well written and if anything, slightly understated, especially considering that the principal characters are teens so it would be easy to get "gushy." The story really brings you into J's world. There are a couple of unimportant details that don't seem to line up but that is of little consequence as I found myself wanting to hear more about this minor character or that scenario. Katie Schorr does a SPECTACULAR job narrating this book. She is quite consistent with this book and book 1 and her range of voices and emotions really brings you into the world of the Interverse. Well done!!!!
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
When we finished unraveling (book 1), the world was left a mess – actually destroyed, Janelle Taylor lost her father, her best friend and the boy she loved (Ben Michaels). The ending was less a cliff hanger than a major downer. The only thing to hope for is somehow Ben Michaels will keep his word and come back for her. This is the setting for the opening of Unbreakable: Unraveling, Book 2.
People are going missing, more being abducted, and assistant junior FBI assistance Jannell is feeling the heat to find out why. The story builds fast. Her style of short punchy chapters is back (which I like) and so is the countdown clock (which I don’t). You’ll have to read for yourself what it all means this time – again. But I think you will be pleased with the story. Katie Schorr narrates this teen novel. She did a great job in book one and she doesn’t miss a beat in book two.
This teen novel will appeal to everyone and it’s appropriate for the young teen as well. There are no grizzly accounts but enough suspense for everyone. I highly recommend the 11 hours of listening; it goes real fast.
