Tsura Harris is a gifted Chuvani, a person who can wield magick. However, she has sworn off all magick, which makes her vulnerable to the Renoldi clan who have every intent of killing her. Against her mother’s wishes, Tsura returns to Jamestown. There, she runs into Red Wolf, a man who she rejected years ago. Red Wolf hoped to never see the woman again who wounded his pride in such a terrible way, but when he sees Tsura and learns she’s in danger, Red Wolf knows it’s his duty to protect her.
The story is once again set in a historical setting, and the magick Tsura uses has ties to Native American magick and culture. I really liked the Native American theme throughout in this series. Not a lot of books focus on that setting or culture, and it’s intriguing to learn more about it. As usual, though, the real spotlight is on the characters. They’re complex, intriguing, they have their own quirks and personalities, and they feel like real, living, breathing, people.
I really liked Red Wolf too. He’s a gentle and caring soul, and cares far more for Tsura than he wants to admit, and this made me feel sympathetic towards him.
Readers interested in paranormal romance with a historical setting should definitely check out this book. Even if you haven’t read the previous books in the series, all the stories are stand-alones, so you can just pick one up and dive into the fascinating world author Kat Flannery has created in the Branded Trilogy. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I read Sacred Legacy by Kat Flannery a little while ago. What drew me to it, of course, was the Native American tie-in as well as the mention of Jamestown. Those two history terms pretty much will make me pick up a book, even if it is indicated with romance, which I rarely read and am fairly judgmental of in terms of genre. One of my favorite types of books are any with a Native American theme, or that take place on the western frontier or in early colonial days. I hoped it would be a good read and attempted to dive in without knowing what I might find.
What I found was that I was immersed from the start! Flannery starts the book off perfectly and at good pace with just enough mystery to tease me. A young girl in 1890 finds a treasure box…with a lady’s diary. I LOVE when that happens! As chapter one begins, it’s set in Jamestown, 1740. Perfect. It’s usually extremely hard to pull me in with the first one or two chapters, but this book had me hooked.
We meet Tsura, who has ancient powers which are gently related in the novel. It is more a spiritual native gift (just to explain how much paranormal this book is in comparison to others) and due to these gifts, a gypsy clan pursues her which is the main action plot that propels the story. Oh, and pretty much all I have to say is the word talisman, right??! Interested now? I really liked her ingenuity and originality with this plot line.
However, the real depth of the novel is the emotions of the characters and the growth and healing she has them go through. The characters being fully dimensional, and the amazing historical detail and excellently-formed sentences, give this book a very firm foundation in which to be able to pace the drama and action so it doesn’t feel at all surface or thin.
The romance is more of a way to create tension throughout the book. This led to me as a reader to feel great emotion at times for Red Wolf, who loves her but feels he needs to stay away from her. He’s a protector for her, but she’s hurt, headstrong, and can’t come to grips with her hurting heart. His care for her, even when they are apart, is so endearing to read. As a reader, I pained for Tsura about her angst and anger and pined for her to find redemption for herself from her struggles. He’s gentle and kind, but loyal and she’s fierce, independent, and determined and I like those qualities in men and women. That’s the best thing an author can do is make you feel for the character and keep you turning the pages.This romance is clean as it’s the type that leaves you with a lot of anticipation.
This is book three but you can read Sacred Legacy without reading the other two, but I am sure you’ll want to go back and read those too, or maybe start and read all three. She’s a gifted writer.
For a night in with a glass of wine, when you want to be absorbed in a dramatic read with a lovely setting that builds it’s story with a fast-paced plot and holds you on with complex and connective characters, this book is for you. I look forward to reading more from Kat!
