In the last year, Allie's survived three arrests, two breakups and one family breakdown. The only bright point has been her new life at Cimmeria Academy. It's the one place she's felt she belongs. And the fact that it's brought the dreamy Carter West into her life hasn't hurt...But far from being a safe haven, the cloistered walls of Cimmeria are proving more dangerous than Allie could've imagined. The students, and faculty, are under threat and Allie's family - from her mysterious grandma to her runaway brother - are at the centre of the storm. Allie is going to have to choose between protecting her family and trusting her friends. But secrets have a way of ripping even the strongest relationships apart...







BOOK REVIEW by Michelle: 

I was so excited to receive my copy of Legacy as I absolutely LOVED Night School # 1. I loved all the intrigue. 

The book trailer above is so well done and it makes the book look very exciting .

I am going to be honest and say I enjoyed this instalment, but it wasn’t until the last 3 chapters or so, that this book was what I wanted it to be. Now I am just one person. One opinion. 

I felt like not a lot of progress happened with the story. We got Carter and Allie and then we got Sylvain and Allie. I was all for Carter in book # 1, now...even though Sylvain was not a nice boy in book # 1, I am like Allie, all confuzzed about my team guy. I am swinging towards Sylvain, but then I feel sorry for Carter and then I feel sorry for Sylvain. 

Let the tennis ball bounce back and forth.

Oh, dear, me! 

I wanted so much more in storyline growth from this instalment. I really know no more than I did in the last book. Christopher is still pretty much a mystery to the ‘why’ of his joining the opposing team and ‘why’ they are the villains of this story. I am still none the wiser as to the ‘why’ of Nathaniel and ‘why’ he wants to take over. I’m kind of not totally clear on what he wants to take over. Maybe I just missed something??

I understand the rivalry. I think I get Night School. But I am a bit baffled as to why kids would not have any walkie talkie or communication when they are doing their rounds at night. Some poor bugger has to always go running off to get help, considering Gabe killed a girl in Night School # 1. It would be safe to say the boy has issues and is dangerous. They have nothing but their partner and training to keep them safe. Are they indeed safe? These kids aren’t Van Damme or Bruce Lee. The villains seem quite well equipped to do some serious damage.

I really liked the cloak and dagger of the dudes in suits. But I don’t really know much about them. 

We finally get to meet Lucinda and she is whisked away. I wanted more from that relationship in this book. There is this mystery with Lucinda and her granddaughter. 

The last 3 to 4 chapters were all fired up and I was like, yehaaaa this is what I have been waiting for. This book is worth reading for those chapters alone and to see how your heart will change with Sylvain. I love Sylvain now. I am just left with this triangle and who does Allie really trust? 

There were trust issues, betrayal, breasts were getting a chilling down, some truth or dare, lusting, action, a moment where I went WT!! , mind games and a bit of sucking up. One thing is for sure Allie has got two gorgeous guys and she and I are left in quite the conundrum.

The sub characters were always fun to have around. Some new entries. 

Catherine from the Book Parade , her review was how I mostly felt . Goodreads Review by Catherine. We enjoyed the book and the characters but not a lot of growth happened for a major portion of the story. But, we enjoyed it and are glad we read itJ

I am very much looking forward to book 3. Especially with what happened in those last few chapters.

O.M.G!!!

    1. Sarah...hey!! You and me both. I think it isn't paranormal, after reading this book, but then I still don't know, lol!! Is there a thriller aspect...well hmmm...there is a mystery aspect for sure. I was trying to put my genre in my tags and I kind of sat staring at the computer as I didn't know.
