Review

"Domenico Italo Composto-Hart has made a most impressive step into the fantasy and science fiction genre. This first book of the Dark Legacy series will join my shelf alongside my all-time favorites." - S.J. Wist, Fantasy Cookie Book Reviews
-
"Dark Legacy is a sweeping blend of epic fantasy and science fiction written in a 'high fantasy' style . . . Whether you are a fan of fantasy or science fiction - or even if you've never read genre fiction before - you will not be disappointed by Dark Legacy: Book I - Trinity." - Derek Donais, author of MetalMagic: Talisman
-
"This was one of the most unique books I've read in a long time; in style if not always in content. As I read it, I definitely came to the conclusion I was reading some European author, as the style was so different from anything I had read in a long time (he's not :))." - Mitchell Tyler, Goodreads reviewer
-
"Overall, this was a great read . . . Domenico has an excellent tale to tell and tells it very well. I am anxiously awaiting further installments in the Dark Legacy series." - George Jaros, Goodreads reviewer
-
"In short it was an excellent book; a wonderful blend of science fiction and fantasy. I haven't checked to see if the other books in the series are released yet, but it's something worth checking out if you are done with . . . the Divergent series, the Hunger Games series, etc." - Justin Yan, Goodreads reviewer

This was one of the most unique books I've read in a long time; in style if not always in content. As I read it, I definitely came to the conclusion I was reading some European author, as the style was so different from anything I had read in a long time (he's not :) ). The story is being told to the reader by a unknown, non-human source, speaking to us in this age of our own history and the lost continent of Atlantis. Often, the story's POV is a bird or a tree, or some minor character, sometimes never to be seen again. The book starts, unabashedly, with the fall of the ruling class of Atlantis, the Kai, and abruptly shifts gears to a village on another, less technologically advanced continent (Europe? Africa?). The book has some strong Star Wars overtones; the more spiritual, less advanced civilization menaced by an overwhelming dark force (Empire vs everyone else); the competing martial arts of the Ki and Kai (Jedi and Sith?); a young man of prophesy who could be savior or tyrant (Luke). There is also, seemingly, a commentary on Eastern and Western philosophy. What I found so unique was the author's patience in moving the story along. The book moves at a snail's pace throughout almost all of the book, sandwiched by two periods of insane, confusing action. Where I would have expected a montage or break to allow for months or years of training and experience to pass by, the book plods along in a very realistic way. People do not change with the turn of a page, and wisdom and knowledge are not gained by the start of the next chapter. Instead, we have stubborn, flawed protagonists, who could just as easily become antagonists in the next book. Any changes in the characters occur, for the most part, so imperceptibly, while we are so close, that I could hardly see it.Read more ›

A unique and original story that was vivid, dark, but so full of hope and inspiration!
Enjoyed the writing style and especially enjoyed the relationship between Shinsei, Kieko, Aiko, and Kira.

I saw the link to this book on another authors page. As I am always looking for new material to read in this genre I thought I would check it out.. I was not disappointed! At first I thought it would be hard to follw, being very long and full of lots of characters and history, but as I started reading, I found it easier to follow and became engrossed in the story of Kieko. The Japanese influence was quite interesting and enjoyable. Overall a good book...looking forward to the next one in the series

Format: Paperback
Dark Legacy: Book I - Trinity includes both a short novella (The End of the Kai) plus the first book of the Legacy series (additional books are still being written). Because I could read it on my ereader, I also downloaded The End of the Kai and read (and reviewed) that. The End of the Kai includes the novella plus the first three chapters of Trinity.

The End of the Kai is an interesting story and well written, however it leaves you wanting to know more about what will happen (or had happened since this all was supposed to have taken place thousands of years ago). The transition from The End of the Kai to Trinity was a hard cut and a little awkward if you don't realize that Trinity starts a completely new, mostly unrelated story. Elements from The End of the Kai don't really come into play in Trinity until the very end of the book. I'm hoping that more of the The End of the Kai story will be revealed in the other, forthcoming Dark Legacy books. Occasionally in The End of the Kai I found some of the characters, scenarios, and story a little confusing. It jumps right into a lot going on and there is a very complex social, political, and religious structure that is apparent in the Atlantean society, but for the most part the information unfolded in a way that wasn't too overwhelming. I do wish there was more substance to the whole story though to give more background, flush out the characters a little more, and continue past where the novella ended.

Trinity starts a completely new story set in a small village on the fictional(?) lost continent of Lemuria. At first I was wanting to know more about Atlantis, but quickly I got engrossed in Kieko's story.

I originally started out with the intro book: Dark Legacy: The End of the Kai, which is basically the first 1/4 of this book. After reading through the incredible blend of fantasy and sci-fi, mixed with Eastern philosophies, I had to buy the full book and finish it.

Without getting into details of the story, the book starts out with a flowing, poetic writing style which allows the reader to gain a lot of understanding about the world the author is envisioning, and draws the reader into the story. From there the reader is transitioned into a more tranquil story line to build the foundation of the rest of the series, and in the last part of the first book the writing crescendo's in fast paced storytelling, and leaves the reader at the end wanting more.

I'm anxiously awaiting the second book which is due out next year.
