Review of "Legacy" by Cayla Kluver
Legacy by Cayla Kluver
Rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Description: I noticed his eyes. They were blue, sharp and intense.
Despite the youthful glow of his suntanned face, his eyes were
cold and unfriendly, suggesting he had great experience in the
world and was now expecting the worst.
A CROWN PRINCESS
A SCANDALOUS SECRET CRUSH
A KINGDOM ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER
In her seventeenth year, Princess Alera of Hytanica faces one duty: to marry the man who will be king. But her father’s choice of suitor fills her with despair.
When the palace guard captures an intruder—a boy her age with steel-blue eyes, hailing from her kingdom’s greatest enemy—Alera is alarmed…and intrigued. But she could not have guessed that their clandestine meetings would unveil the dark legacy shadowing both their lands.
In this mystical world of court conspiracies and blood magic, loyalties will be tested. Courage won’t be enough. And as the battle begins for everything Alera holds dear, love may be the downfall of a kingdom.
Colleen's Thoughts: After learning that the author was 16 years old when the book was written, I was a little skeptical. However, I was gloriously surprised by her writing abilities. It is hard to believe it was written by someone so young. She writes with such emotional depth. She has the ability to portray her characters in a startlingly realistic way. I was completely enraptured from the beginning to the end. Cayla Kluver is a wonderful story-teller and beautifully eloquent. I was sad the book was over. I eagerly anticipate the remaining books in the trilogy and anything else she may write in the future.
