Book Description

September 15, 2010
Excruciating pain is something Nicholas must daily endure while resisting his desires, through constant exercise of self control. The suffering he could cause others would be substantially worse if he were to ever lose his tenacity to resist. His temptations have grown significantly worse after an encounter with a starved and obsessed Succubus named Delilah. Nicholas has now become her most sought after conquest; and she will not cease her intent in capturing his heart and devotion. Nicholas embarks on a journey, ignited by what he feels is the necessity to flee from Delilah's grasp, in his fear for the safety of others. He discovers an unusual world during his journey, far stranger than he could have ever imagined. A world where the unanswered questions he's always longed for, start to unveil more than just who and what he really is. Nicholas is no longer a day dreaming child full of delusions, but he is a man embarking on his own Odyssey and ready to discover his purpose. He wasn't just simply running away as far as he could from Delilah, the truth was far more complicated. He sees the opportunity to get to what he believed to be the source of all his suffering, the place where the story of what he was began; The Cradle of Life. You are invited to take a journey into this literary world that will steadily become clearer to you the deeper you dive, and if you pay attention you'll discover answers to some of the philosophical questions we have in our own world today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read March 18, 2011
Format:Paperback
Legatum is one of the best novels I have read in quite some time. What started out as a simple promise to read the author's book (for we work together), turned out to be the best kept promise. I am not typically into fictional stories. However, this page turning story kept me biting my tongue in suspense. I could not read it fast enough to see the plot evolve and really take shape. I could relate to the characters for they were so realistic and fascinating. I felt like I was there in the story with them. There are a few captivating scenes of pure lust and attraction. In these scenes the author has such a descriptive way of drawing you into the scene, making you wish that was you on those pages. He captures every part of your humanity within the pages of his book, that you will not be able to put it down once you start. The way the ending all comes together is priceless, each piece falling into place perfectly. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL DONE! September 27, 2011
By Brian
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking for something new to read the other day. A friend recommended Legatum to me, and what a good recommendation it was. Legatum had everything I was looking for; it was quirky, intriguing, and entertaining. The story of Nicky's journey of discovery had it all: love of family, adventure, mythical and supernatural characters, sex, moral choices, and the pain of addiction. Who could ask for more? The last chapter kept me riveted, and made me stay up way to late - but I had to find out how the story ended. With the unique mix the author brings to bear, he might just be on the cusp of creating an entirely new genre. Well done Mr. Brunk, well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read, February 5, 2013

"Legatum kept me reading from beginning to end! What start off as a simple love story with hot passion turns quickly into a journey of a boy becoming a man and finding out who he really is in the world. With a paranormal twist and mythical gods, Nicholas journey is not an easy one, but one of love, sacrifices and redemption. This book made me laugh with light humor and witty comments, to bringing me half way to tears with the sad background stories. I fine that the greatest thing about this book is that even if you're not use to reading a paranormal story, I feel you will like this story anyway. I found this book had everything I like: romance, fantasy and ancient myths with real world basics and a plot that will have you biting your nails, this books ending had me wanting more."
