BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Legacy by Ellery A. Kane

Book & Author Details:

Legacy by Ellery A. Kane
(Legacy #1)
Publication date: September 5th 2014
Genres: Dystopian, Young Adult

Synopsis:

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 book in the Legacy trilogy but can also be enjoyed as a standalone.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)


This is the first book in the Legacy series, although the story wraps up nicely so can be read as a standalone. Personally, I want more! 

Legacy is a gripping story, based in San Francisco in the future, our main female is Lex (Alexandra) who is searching for the resistance as her mother has given her something to give to them. She is found by Artos (and Quinn) who take her back to the headquarters. There is a slow-build romance between Quinn and Lex, although there is still work to do. I loved that it wasn't just insta-love, but rather a connection which grew into love. 

With a cast of amazing characters, twists and turns to the story, there is more than enough to keep you enthralled within the pages. Extremely well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that I could see, this was a gripping story that left me wanting more. Definitely recommended.

* I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review. *

A signed copy of the entire Legacy trilogy

Forensic psychologist by day, young-adult novelist by night, Ellery Kane has been writing—professionally and creatively—for as long as she can remember. Just like her main character, Lex, Ellery loves to ask why, which is the reason she became a psychologist in the first place. Real life really is stranger than fiction, and Ellery’s writing is often inspired by her day job. Evaluating violent criminals and treating trauma victims, she has gained a unique perspective on the past and its indelible influence on the individual. An avid short story writer as a teenager, Ellery recently began writing for enjoyment again, and the Legacy series was born.

Ellery’s debut novel, Legacy, has received several awards, including winning the Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, young adult, e-book category. Ellery was recently selected as one of ten semifinalists in the MasterClass James Patterson Co-Author Competition.
