The first boy disappeared on the day of his birth, on a night when the pale yellow moon of the nighttime sky turned red and bathed the heavens in the ghastly color of blood, on the same night the Kingdom of Cokyri abruptly ceased its merciless attack.
Across the land of Hytanica, under the shadow of the crimson moon, infant boys continued to vanish. Not until the blood had faded from the sky did the disappearances stop, and the bodies of the murdered infants were found outside the gates of the city, a final word from the greatest enemy Hytanica had ever known. For the next sixteen years, peace reigned, but one mystery remained unsolved. The Cokyrians had abducted forty-nine newborns, but returned only forty-eight bodies.
Now, as seventeen-year-old Princess Alera of Hytanica is besieged from all sides by suitors vying for the Throne, a teenage Cokyrian boy, Narian, is encountered within the walls of her Kingdom, a boy who will show Alera a world where women serve a purpose and not just a husband. As Narian helps Alera find her voice, she struggles against an arranged marriage that will shatter the life she has scarcely begun to live. And when Narian's shocking past is uncovered, and war with Cokyri looms once more, he must fight to defy a fate ordained at his birth.
Before I start I would like to point out that the Author who wrote this book is 16! Isn't that awesome? It's not everyday I come across an Author who is my age. She wrote the book when she was like 14 or 15. Her name is Cayla Kluver and she's a great Author.
Legacy is such a great book! I won a copy from /- LA FEMME READERS -/ and I started reading last night and couldn't stop! My favorite character is probably Alera because I feel that I can relate to her. She wants to make her father happy but she wants to be happy herself. She doesn't want anything to do with Steldor (I wouldn't either) and she even lets him know she doesn't want him. Steldor has a BIG ego and is very annoying. I hate guys like that. Alera's father wants her to marry him! Steldor thinks Alera is jealous of him! He's obviously not used to having a girl turn him down. And when Narian comes everything seems to change for Alera. She is drawn to him and his mysterious ways. Alera is not sure if she should trust him. He rarely shows any kind of feeling on his face. Yet, Alera trusts him with all her heart. I love Miranna. She such a good sister. She's seems so sweet and friendly (total opposite from mine) and she tries to help out with Alera and Steldor's marriage (By helping I mean not letting Alera marry him).
I swear, once you start reading this book, you can't stop. Its SO good. The book ended with me wanting more! I can't wait till Allegience comes out! Cayla has her own website and she says there will be three books in the series, Legacy, Allegiance and Redemption. You should check out her awesome webite:www.caylakluver.com
