A #HookReview of Legacy: Book #3, the Fire Chronicles, by Susi Wright

rom the preface, maps and even a page on fantasy philosophy – you get the feeling this world has a rich history, and has been shown a lot of love by the author.

The author submitted this one. The first thing that caught my eye about the cover was the unique style of the art, the dragon in the background, (I like Dragons – who doesnt?) then the interesting fish-bone looking sword in the character’s hand. I checked the blurb:
It needs work. In order to find out what the plot is, and not just background, I had to scroll down half-way through it.

“Driven by destiny, courage and love, Luminor’s intrepid daughter, Espira, must reconcile with her rebellious brother, Ardientor, summoning nascent powers to join the quest.”

I dug the concept, even if the blurb was structured oddly with one sentence paragraphs and teetering on infodump. I opened the preview. After maps, a preface, and a disclaimer, I arrived at a prologue.

The open is scenery and then a sword fight in the background. Slowly, the author zooms into the fight, and one page into it, we get a character’s name that was in the blurb “Ardientor.” The fight is written well. From the preface, maps and even a page on fantasy  philosophy – you get the feeling this world has a rich history, and has been shown a lot of love by the author.

The writing is passable, and I plan to read a little more to get a better feel for the author’s voice. But so far… it’s a maybe for me. If you would like to see a review of this one, please vote for it in the poll of the week.
