I’m very much enthusiastic to tell you about this book because it’s totally my jam. I read it quickly, but also not. I don’t know if you’re like this, but when there’s a book I really like, I equally don’t want to stop reading but also don’t want to keep reading because then it will be over soon. Now let’s get this straight right now. This book is a fast-paced, interesting story that has some good twists and turns. It has some great characters, flawed and believable, with fun elements and awesome mythology to it that adds interest and depth. Now I have to stop so that I do not give away the story.
This is a story about Luke Hart, a normal, everyday guy heading off to college with McKenna Parker, his best friend, and one true love. While at school Luke encounters an inconspicuous world, unlike anything he has experienced before. The world of Legacy, an institution that has been thriving since the decline of the Roman empire. Becoming engaged in Legacy, Luke later finds out that he is a Bloodborn. It means he is a warrior whose bloodline traces back to one of the legends. While finding a home in Legacy, Luke begins his transformation from a seemingly normal guy into a God, But the closer Luke gets to his fulfilling his destiny, the more he puts his and McKenna's lives in danger.
If you are looking for a book that has a good plot, great twist, with a dose of romance and action, this book is for you. It was heavy on mythology with plenty of metaphorical narratives showing the reader how Legacy surpasses through time. I loved the plot along with the whole concept of Legacy and its bloodborn descendants of ancient historical warriors. The book is very well-written. I love books that do a good job with changing perspectives each chapter, and this is one of those books. I feel like I am able to connect to the characters. Costner did such a great job with the storyline. I’m really glad I read this book. I found it insightful, interesting, and well-written. I definitely understand why it has gotten the recognition it deserves. I will for sure recommend it to people who are looking for something complex and interesting to read.
