The five renegade students of Oakhurst Academy know their battle with the Shadow Knights, seemingly resolved in Conspiracies (2011), has simply gone underground. Breakthrough Adventure Company, which took over the campus, is actually run by Shadow Knights intent on creating an army of mages. They efficiently remove any dissenting students and teachers. Spirit White guides her friends and the reader through the many plot twists, uncovering the Arthurian mystery at the heart of the story. It won’t stand alone, but Lackey and Edghill maintain the fast pace and cinematic feel of previous titles in the Shadow Grail series while setting the stage for yet more showdowns. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
“Lackey and Edghill know how to spin a yarn… Fast-paced action… There's also a touch of romance, and readers who appreciate everything from X-Men to Harry Potter will be begging for the sequel.” ―Booklist on Legacies
“A really good read. The authors do a great job of juxtaposing a scary theme and the ordinary angst of adolescents. They also do a nice job with the metaphor of magical gifts as means of self-actualization. Legacies has enough action for reluctant readers, and enough character development for teens to see themselves in this group of friends. The book's fans are sure to eagerly await Spirit's discovery of her mage gift and further confrontations with the forces of evil.” ―School Library Journal on Legacies
“The authors expertly balance a heady mixture of mystery and teenage romance.” ―RT Book Reviews on Legacies

It's not as spell binding as some of Mercedes other series, but it's an enjoyable story that occasionally has an unexpected twist. I agree that there are numerous references to the past (which was well covered in #1 and #2), but for those who have read dozens of other books while waiting on this one, it's a nice reminder of the critical plot points, and a common literary device particularly when the main storyline follows the development and maturation of a young protagonist like Spirit. Her interpretation of past events slowly shifts as she learns more about magic, Oakhurst Academy, and her fellow students. For those who complain that the story is dragging on too long and there's not enough action, yes, there are good deal of pages that are very introspective. Instead of "slowing the action down", they are intended to reveal the main character's development (angst-filled teenagers don't become level-headed adults overnight).
