compare it to another novel but it would be an insult to this book because it was unique The premise of the novel is very interesting It is 2041 and there are pills that are available to alter moods Lex is the main character and her mother plays a large roll in the after math of the abuse of the pills I didn t immediately fall in love with these characters and I believe that is what makes them so great Lex is very relatable and does not put up a front about how she is feeling She does not fake interests and does not pretend to be strong when she is terrified Quin is also a very lovable character He isn t your typical boy with issues I got to a point in the novel where the thought of I seriously love these characters and I cant wait to see what happens hit me There was one moment and after that I couldn t dislike the book if I tried The romance in the novel had to be my favorite part because it was very realistic It wasn t just oh we are forbidden to be together so lets prove everyone wrong It was a I will love you no matter what and if you need time to figure yourself out, that s okay I will be waiting type of love Love plays a large part in this novel Its not all romantic love either Its love for a child and love for your friends.I highly recommend this novel to everyone If by chance the author of this novel sees this review, I would like to tell you that you have done an amazing job and I can not wait for novels from you. 4.5 starsI received this book in exchange for an honest review The first time that I killed someone, it wasn t at all like I had imagined It was a quick and as effortless as snipping a string I squeezed the trigger, and the man fell back This story had me hooked from the first few pages YA dystopian love story action my favorite formula And this book had it all The story is told from Alexandra Lex Knightley s POV She is an eighteen year old girl living in dystopian San Francisco with her mother, who created emotion altering drugs that led to utter destruction and chaos Lex leaves the safety of her mother to go find the Resistance, a group of people who are working to change things Lex proves to be a survivor and all around tough chick, so I was very pleased with the way her character was written Once inside the Resistance, Lex gets close to a guy named Quin Quin is the typical troubled boy with plenty of secrets And even though I say typical , I never get tired of this type of personality Quin did not disappoint, and I found myself falling for him just as quickly as Lex Qiun s friends, Elana and Max, were also well written characters with plenty of depth I found it very hard to believe that this was a debut novel I was impressed with the writing style, original idea, and attention to detail Some people might not like how this book is formatted with VERY short chapters, but I honestly didn t even care because I was so engrossed in the story.The story takes a turn when the group leaves the Resistance and goes back the Lex s mother At this point, I had no hope of putting the book down Once Lex reunites with her mother, we learn a lot about the world and also back stories of the characters I had many problems with Lex s mom but came to love her by the end Quin and Lex went through some issues that I thought were very realistic and was glad their relationship played out the way it did.I don t want to give away anything, so I will just say that the ending gets CRAZY This book has everything that I love about the YA dystopian genre If you are also obsessed with this genre, I suggest that you READ THIS BOOK Dwww.meetmybookboyfriend.wordpress.com Thank you to author Ellery A Kane for providing me with a copy of this in exchange for an honest reviewFind this review and on my blog The Rest Is Still Unwritten Legacy by Ellery A Kane was a well paced and well thought out novel that surprised me with it s exciting storyline and tangible characters Set in an alternate future where drugs can alter your emotions and military forces control society to an extent, Legacy was a wonderful debut Following eighteen year old Alexandra Lex Knightly, Legacy is set in the alternate future of 2041 where society is a shadow of it s former self and pharmaceutical companies produce drugs that suppress fear and uncertainty, working together with military forces known as Guardians to create super soldiers incapable of feeling fear and disobeying orders As the daughter of the forensic psychiatrist who first came up with the emotion altering drug known as Emovere, Lex finds herself entering the deserted city of San Francisco to meet up with a group known as the Resistance in order to potentially take down the Guardians and bring to light the truth about Emovere and its devastating side affects Heading into Legacy, I wasn t completely sure what I should expect The description sounded promising, but if I m honest the cover didn t go a long way to fuelling my imagination Still I was hopeful And I m thrilled to say Legacy encompasses the saying that you shouldn t judge a book by it s over Ellery A Kane s debut novel was a very exciting story that has obviously been very well thought out and constructed I quite liked Lex as the main character and have to commend Kane on writing a heroine easy to like and follow Lex takes on a hard task when she risks entering San Fransisco to find the Resistance and even though she is untrained and afraid, she faces her fears knowing that she has the potential to save lives All the characters we meet throughout the story compliment the plot line beautifully I enjoyed seeing Lex make friends with some ex Guardians and see Kane explore the damages harsh childhoods and painful pasts have had on the individuals treated with Emovere I was very satisfied with Lex and her relationship with Quin McAllister, the tough and fractured former Guardian who helps her throughout the story and quickly wins her heart While admittedly I felt Lex and Quin fell in love too soon, I did believe their feelings and their romance By the end of the book it was no surprising at all that they felt so deeply about each other after all they had been through but I would have liked a slower process of them getting there Quin had some very real demons he needed to face and I appreciated Ellery A Kane forcing him to face hard truths and growth requirements in Lecacy My only issue with this story is that I would have liked to explore the world within Legacy just a little bit I m very intrigued to see exactly how society got to be the way it is in 2041 and can only hope Kane expands on this some should she write a sequel and continue on with the series Legacy concludes very well, with Lex and her friends taking on powerful individuals to bring to light the truth about what is going on, and in saying that Legacy could very easily be a stand alone novel And yet, despite how well it concludes, I do hope Ellery A Kane writes a sequel as I wouldn t mind the chance to see and learn a bit about this world and about these characters. This story had me intrigued from the first couple of chapters and the synopsis The story is told from Alexandra Knightley s POV An eighteen year old girl living in the suburbs of San Francisco with her mother, who created emotion altering drugs that led to utter destruction and chaos The story revolves around Lex leaving the safety of her mother to go find the Resistance, a group of people who are working to change things and stand up to the corrupt government Sounds cool right I tried to like this book because I really wanted to like this book I love dystopian novels and tied in with this are a lot of elements from popular dystopian books a unqiue setting, interesting history, a communist government, mind altering drugs, and romance As great as all of this sounds, I just did not like the book Lets start with the writing It reminded me of a few other dystopian novels in the sense that the author gets to involved in the plot line and loses touch with the characters and character development That had a huge impact on the book as I could not relate or connect to any of the characters Even though the author was good at describing the horrific events and traumas that they went through, westill didn t get to really know the characters They all seemed paper thin, and completely unreal to me The pacing was slow in the sense that little things happened here and there but they were not of much importance The end was predicatable and some characters, such as Lex s father just seemed random and out of place With the characters, even though I knew they were all different and since thereweren t many within the book it was easy to remember who was who but I still saw them as the same people I knew each person had a different background but they all acted the same Distant, moody and untalkative The dialogue at times seemed so forced because of their lack of emtion bringing us to the next point The romance in this book was painful It came out of nowhere I could see that perhaps the author was trying to show us that in a crumbling society people may just want to be with one another, but then it isnt love so much as lust or seeking comfort The romance was intense and awkward, and it was just random It seemed weird because once again, the characters didnt feel real and they didn t seem to have real emotions, but it did get better towards the end.Overall I would recommend this to some younger readers, as an introduction to the dystopian genre, but It is is not one of my favourites It is a really good story line, which is pretty much what I liked about the book.www.globalbookmania.wordpress.com for reviews
