THEME: Dragons, Fae, and Vampires
RECEIVED: Reviewing for Nurture Book Tour
I'm a big fan of paranormal stories with a mix of supernaturals and Denise Tompkins writes a unique story doing just that. Legacy is the first novel in the Niteclif Evolution series, filled with mystery, adventure, and lots of sizzling romance.
Legacy follows Maddy Niteclif, one day she gets sudden urge to drop everything a start a new life somewhere else, she ends up in England. Where she discovers the reason she felt the need to go there, her family's legacy is linked to the real life Sherlock Holmes. Maddy is next in line to take over the position that is passed down in generations, which is to protect and serve the supernaturals and work with the council. But she has a lot to learn and with the help of the original Watson, who is actually a Dragon shifter, and she gets stuck in working for the council on a case that leads to question after question, as well as deep into danger.
Legacy was a bundle of fun with the thrill of having the lead character be a paranormal type Sherlock Holmes. Maddy is a likeable character but has many points of immaturity that irritated me here and there. She has a lot that is thrown at her and with the help of her Dragon shifter companion Bahlin, she's able to handle all the supernatural mystery's that come at her.
Bahlin was my favorite in Legacy; He's sarcastic, charming and knows how to make a girl swoon. I loved his protectiveness with Maddy and how he took a lot of her mood swings. The chemistry was fantastic between them, Tompkins wrote some smoking hot scenes and great conflict.
Overall even though at times I felt a little overwhelmed with information, I loved the mystery, romance and the ending opens up a wide range for this series to go to. The characters were unique, exciting, as were the villains. I'm interested to see what happens next for Maddy.
This is an adult novel with sexual content and mystery. Fans of Katie MacAlister's Aisling Grey series will enjoy Denise Tompkins Niteclif Evolution series.
But Bahlin has more than just a little crush on Maddy, which only complicates their professional relationship. As he tries to show her his true feelings, he only seems to be making things worse when a spree of murders strikes the paranormal realm. Maddy finds herself on the case, with Bahlin at her side. She needs to find the murderer, stay alive, and figure out who she can really trust, because this time the entire world could be at stake.
As one of the books with a mystery aspect that I didn't guess the answer to within a couple chapters, this book scored major points. The story was so involving that I found myself following the characters instead of trying to predict what they would do or find solutions to their problems. Much like real people, they were a bit unpredictable. The way the paranomal world overlapped and meshed with then normal world as we know it was fantastic. The variety of creatures encountered kept me constantly wondering what I would get to see next.
There was a good chunk of romance, and it was done very well. Maddy was not the kind of person to let just anyone take her to bed. It was refreshing to see such a strong female role played out in a romance.
Bahlin is a dragon shape shifter who has waited for a very long time to meet the Niteclif. Left with a prophecy and a promise to watch over the Niteclif, Bahlin must decide if it is worth risking everything just to receive the one thing that he has ever longed for.
Maddy must learn that not everything that glitters is gold. With a power struggle surging, Maddy must master her new skills before her time, and life, are extinguished. Will she be able to walk away from the one thing her heart yearns for or follow the path that has been placed in front of her?
I am excited to see the path that Maddy, Bahlin and the other characters take in book two of this promising series.
