Max and Andrea take you through a wild ride into the Chinese culture in a race to decipher and unravel a mysterious message Max received. Murder and mystery ensues. I've always been intrigued by the mentality that brought about the Lost Girls in China. Throw in code and I'm hooked. I have a background in code but nothing like this. Hidden languages and strong women make this story even better.
No spoilers here, just a strong suggestion that if you like fast paced, story filled mysteries....you'll want to pick up this book.
I received this book for review purposes only. A positive review was not required and as alway, thoughts are my own.
This is a story about a code breaker and linguist who get put together in order that solve a mystery. The mystery and suspense kept me on the edge of my couch making me tap my kindle to turn the pages faster than normal.
Max comes from America with a doll in tow. He has been tasked with solving the mystery of this doll and figuring out how to unlock it. His long time partner Andra is dragged along for the ride of their lives in their attempts to not only unlock the doll but to also make it out of this mystery still intact.
This book was great in its entirety but where I felt it lacked and made it so that I couldn't give it the four stars like I wanted to was in the area of the romance between Andra in Max. Though I'm usually fine with faster than normal love or even insta-love this one just felt to unrealistic to me. Normally that doesn't deter me from a book but I just felt that the chemistry was to forced and could have been handled differently. Even with this fact I plan on reading the next book because I see so much potential for this author and I know the writing style will only improve in the coming books.
Legacy of Fear was an amazing story not only because I learned more about Chinese culture and the forgotten language (which is actually a real language) but because the author wove such an intriguing story. It was fascinating to watch them piece together the clues they found while avoiding the men that were trying to stop them. The fact that there was a romance between the two was an added bonus. This was definitely a book I couldn’t put down once I started it.
The setting is Honk King. Andra, a young woman who now lives here gets the shock of her life when she finds her neighbor across the hall dead. Did they mean to get Andra?
Arriving on the seen is Max, a linguist who is trying to solve a puzzle that has landed in his lap in the form of a doll with the message, “Find my heart. Find my girl.” Why is he set to locate Andra? He needs her to crack the code of the message and the reason why it was set to him.
This starts off the pair in finding a mythical village that is run by and populated strictly by women. They need to learn a lost language to solve this mystery. Toss in men who are after you at ever turn, the plight of our characters just intensifies.
I do have one part of the book that left me flat. This is not a big book. I get the fact that Max and Andra who start off as friends start to like each other to where they get romantic. While I am not someone who likes reading romance in a book, if it is done in the right amount I am okay with this. The amount of scenes where we saw these characters expressing their feelings for each other and their interludes to me was too much and less would have been just as effective and the point would have been made just as well. I wanted to get on to the mystery and not turn a page and yet again see them being lovey toward each other.
This was a quick read, and you could easily read it in a short time. I loved the story line of the village, language and how it was all tied into a doll that was delivered to Max. That really was fun to read. Overall, this is a good read and for the price you truly can’t go wrong.
