I received this audio book from the author/publisher via Audio Book Worm for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
Formed around the bond of a brother and sister, we are transported into a world that seems stuck between its future and its past; and the characters must make the appropriate choices to keep everything from falling apart.
I absolutely LOVED this story! It is so unique and captivating, not only the story itself, but the characters too. The narrator was simply stunning, perfectly capturing the tone of the book and providing the correct emphasis in every sentence. At one point while listening, I caught myself looking to the TV thinking that I was watching a show instead of listening to a book!
As for the cleanliness of the novel, there always seems to be mild violence in YA novels, so in addition to that, there is a descriptive scene of grieving the loss of a loved-one that some audiences may be able to relate to a little too well and therefor may be disturbed by this scene. Aside from this, I was very pleased with how this book ended and await book two with eagerness.
Legacy comes highly recommended! 5 out of 5 stars!
