Synopsis: If you follow those who are lost,
you will never find your way…
Atalanta and Damien are the last descendants of the mythic figures of Medusa and Perseus. Their divine blood is not the only thing they have in common–they are mortal enemies locked in a centuries long feud. One that would have ended if not for the interference of a priestess with a vague prophecy of world-destroying events that only they can prevent.
They must set aside their hatred long enough to travel from the shores of Sicily to the island of Crete to find answers.
The tumultuous changes of the end of the 15th century darken the edges of their journey as they learn to navigate the strange juxtaposition between old oaths and new.
Legend’s Legacy brings fantasy and adventure to classic mythology. This one is vivid and captivating, taking you on a journey not unlike Odysseus’s. For lovers of history mixed with imagination and the legends of old, this one is for you!
This one definitely had some creativity involved in its making. I loved the idea of following the last descendants of the blood lines of the mythical Medusa and Perseus. I’ve always had a soft spot for mythology, and this one really touched it.
The story started off a little slow, but picked up to a steady, enjoyable pace. I enjoyed the flow of the writing, and though I did find a few typos, I never stumbled or felt lost in the book. I found that it was a quick read that kept me wanting to turn the page.
The characters were really well developed for such a short book. I became invested in them, and learned a lot about each of their personalities. Atalanta seemed to be my favorite, because she was strong and fierce, but had a soft, caring side that touched my heart. Damien was also a strong character, but seemed to have a hardened heart, and Calista was an intriguing enigma with a heartbreaking history.
I’d definitely recommend this one to those who love mythology. It was unique and engaging, and left me wanting more! Amanda did a great job in developing this new world, and history, surrounding the characters while adding in bits and pieces of historical accuracy. I can’t wait to read the next one!
