Review: Legacy

Title: Legacy
Author: Ellery A.Kane

How do you want to feel today?

In 2041, the choice is yours.

San Francisco is deserted, the Bay Bridge bombed, and the BART subway trains grounded. The Guardians, members of an elite and mysterious government-appointed military police force, are maintaining order at all costs—thanks to emotion-altering drugs like Emovere that suppress fear and anxiety.

 Lex Knightley, daughter of a prominent forensic psychiatrist, risks entering the devastated city to partner with the Resistance, a group of rebels intent upon exposing the dangers of Emovere.
Lex discovers an ally in Quin McAllister, a magnetic Guardian Force recruit with a haunting past that binds them together. As she uncovers the secrets of the Guardian Force and confronts the truth about her family, Lex begins to realize that even those closest to her are not quite who they seem.
Legacy is the first in a trilogy but can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone.


Legacy's synopsis will definitely draw you in if your a fan of down with the government dystopian books.The story starts of strong and just keeps going. This worked and didn't work for me I felt like everything was pretty fast paced and a bit more detail in general would have been great. The best part about the book is learning about the different emotion-altering drugs.

The book starts off with a bang with Lex and her dangerous trip across the bridge to find the rebels. In the beginning he pov switches from present to past explaining how Lex got there, and how her mother is the person who started the problem in the world that the rebels are facing. Lex was kind of hit or miss for me on one hand she was a likable character on the other she a bit stubborn somewhere towards the end of the book and she started to bother me. Quin was kind of hard to understand,he was hot then cold the next minute. I couldn't really relate to both characters. The other charterers like Max or Eddie where probably a lot more relate-able for me than the main two.

The cover fit wonderfully with the story and a few key moments in the book. Legacy is a good read/book and I can respect that but truthfully it's just not something I'd read again. Regardless to how I feel though give Legacy a shot and form you own opinion.2/5

Something to Note: I received this book from the author for an honest review.
