Four individuals share a particular secret, one which those in power would do anything to obtain. This is the story of a destroyed nation in turmoil.
Other reviewers have called Legacy of Ashes a book that grips the imagination; unputdownable; amazing. Actually, I found it to be somewhat less than that. The story is confusing. The four characters at the center of this tale go by different names at different times. It's difficult to remember who's who. There are quite a few different story lines here. Keeping them separate is tough to do, since they all intertwine.
I really didn't become even somewhat intetested until around 65% of the way through the story. I kept reading because I had to find out why every reviewer gave this story such great reviews. For me, this story was just average. There was no compelling plot or concept that made me want to finish the book. Some parts were interesting, don't get me wrong. The reader doesn't really get the full plot of the book until the final 3-4 chapters when everything begins to come together.
The authors could easily have made this story compelling by restructuring it so the reader isn't kept in the dark until the end. By building a sense of anticipation from the beginning, rather than laying it all out like a confusing jigsaw puzzle, would do wonders here.
I found this story to be just 'okay'. I've read different series that I simply could not put down. This isn't one of them. This is the first in a series. I doubt that I'll read the remainder. I was not terribly impressed.
I'm willing to give this 3 stars as Ric is a talented writer and the story is well edited, but its a low 3 star. This is not a well-composed tale with a clear progression from conflict to conflict and a plot path that is easy to follow.
Some might like it, but I prefer a story that comes with a clearly defined character and plot network.
I would definitely recommend to anyone who loves survival or post-apocalyptic books.
