From the Author
"I absolutely love when moving parts from different books finally come together and you are able to have that holy shit moment.Especially when the pieces of the puzzle are things that you thought were so inconsequential at the time."
Katy's review on Goodreads. Full review: bit.ly/2ZBYTJX
The same goes for Legacy's subplots which are sprinkled throughout,such as it is with backstory of the Trickster, the demon, and the nymph, whose stories come together as the series progresses. There's a bit of everything from mythology, to steampunk, with action, adventure, surprises, romance, and mystery.
As readers enter this alternative world they are introduced to different plotlines in different locations, such as England, Holland,Mexico, New Orleans, and so on. Characters of the Legacy series are a diverse bunch with his or her own motives for doing what they do that somehow fits into the main plot of each story.
In conclusion, the Legacy series is a tale pieced together by both large and small plotlines, some even giving a glimpse into the standalone book, Boom Time as well as the upcoming new series, The Age of the Machine.

Michelle has the ability to weave complex story lines and ideas into a compelling narrative, and that's what you'll find in "Legacy." Here characters are well-rounded, compelling, and diverse, and her writing is clear and descriptive, without superfluous details. None of her characters are perfect. Even the most likable among them have believable flaws and interesting back stories.
"Legacy" blends history, fantasy, and a little bit of steampunk into a dramatic story well worth your time.
Why? Let’s see...
The things I didn’t like:
- Legacy was supposed to be a steampunk novel. I’ve read lots of steampunk novel but Legacy wasn’t like those. Steampunk novels supposed to have different steam-driven machines and cogs and keys and clockworks and other things like these. I was expecting lots of these but there were none.
- the first chapter didn’t make much sense to me. I suppose the next books in the series could shed some lots on the things that happen there but still.
The things I did like:
- characters and their developement: Legacy has lots of characters and almost all of them has their own background stories.
Clover and Archie Norwich are loving siblings. Despite Clover being only a child, she is clever, courageous and creative. I couldn’t help but like her. Archie is at first shy, reserved but caring man who just wants to live in peace but as the story goes he turns into a brave and resourceful man who will protect not just his sister but others too.
Then there is Pierce Landcross. He is a thief and has been chiod childhood. But he is an honorable one. He seems at first flippant and just wants to be left alone and start a new life but someone like him can’t just do that. He is also brave and funny and has a heart no matter what he claims.
- writing style: the story was easy to follow despite the lots of characters. The story has action and suspense so it kept my attention.
I’m giving 4 stars.
I received an advance review copy for free and I’m leaving this review voluntarily.
That being said, perhaps because I did listened to the audio version of Legacy, from the prologue throughout Chapter 1, I found it very difficult to get into the story, which made it feel more like a chore you HAD to get through. I'm not sure if it was because of the narrator (not sure this was the right book for this particular narrator) and the sound effects, or the story itself. While I can't say this is "Steampunk", I can definitely say it's fantasy. Many characters were introduced early in the story, and it was difficult to keep track of who was who even 6 hours into the audio. There were very likable and interesting characters (Clover, Pierce & Archie), and some not so likable ones. After a point (6 hours) the story finally started to move along, and by the end, most issues get resolved.
After all of the above, would I venture into the next installment? Yes, I would definitely give it a go, but I would read a printed copy rather than the audio.

Tarquin Norwich was a man that many feared, and even his own children didn’t feel completely safe around him. Tarquin was a man that was used to getting what he wanted. Being the Queens cousin was certainly an advantage, however he had forged this own reputation as a hard man not to be messed with. So, when he told his son Archie that he had to go and find Pierce Landcross and bring him home for him to interrogate, Archie wasn’t about to say no. Meanwhile Tarquin set off to find Joaquin Landcross and hopefully extract the where location of the Toymaker, Indigo Peachtree. Tarquin needed to get hold of ‘The Journal’ and the Masks, and he believed the Toymaker could help him. Power was the only thing Tarquin was interested in. This is a clever story, with a great group of characters. It’s well worth a read.
