Legacy by Ellery Kane

I was sent a free copy of Legacy by Ellery Kane in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Legacy by Ellery Kane.

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.

— Ellery A. Kane

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.

— Ellery A. Kane

Review

As I wrote at the top of this hub "I was sent a free copy of Legacy by Ellery Kane in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Legacy by Ellery Kane."

Legacy by Ellery Kane does not really match my typical genres of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, but I decided it sounded interesting so I would give it a shot. At times I found the atmosphere of Legacy by Ellery Kane to be bit depressing, but there were good moments that made me kept reading.

I really loved the developing relationship between Lex and Quin. The relations between the two helped to show the better side of both of the characters. My favorite scene is when Quin and Lex first meet in San Francisco. I enjoyed reading about the resistance itself and the members of it. I found it interesting that many of the key members used to be Guardians.

Legacy by Ellery Kane is a book that jumps you straight into the plot without any wasted time or slow starts. This sink or swim approach to getting the reader pulled in to the book was a bit hit with me. I tend to find books that bore the reader with lots of background information to be a bore.

I really enjoyed the way Legacy by Ellery Kane ended. I liked that the epilogue was a good ending it was not one of those that left you wondering if the man character was dead or if he or she was going to survive. As the same time it also left me looking forward to reading prophecy by Ellery Kane.

If you are a young adult or an adult who enjoys reading dystopian fiction than Legacy by Ellery Kane is the book for you. Just be careful once you start reading you won't want to stop.
