This book felt a lot like the story line of Romeo and Juliet with as much intrigue cay,a there was romance.
For the most part I was a tad bored. The story slows by and I just desperately wanted to read more about their forbidden love. I enjoyed it but not to the extent that I loved it.
Previously published on my blog: Check out her bio: Writing has always been Cayla Kluver’s passion. It wasn’t until her freshman year in high school that she discovered this made her different from her classmates. She was writing in a notebook at the lunch table, when a friend asked her if she was doing homework. When Cayla said no, she was just writing down some ideas, her friend’s stunned response was “You write for fun?
Legacy : Cayla Kluver :
She then worked very hard to combine her junior and senior years so she could graduate early. She completed the first draft of Allegiance, which continues the story begun in Legacy, the following year. In addition to writing, Cayla enjoys such activities as movies, theatre productions, singing, horseback riding, and hanging out with friends. She is sixteen years ny, and lives with her family legzcy her muse Nina, her cat in Wisconsin, where only the hardy survive.
Legacy is her first novel. Yes, Cayla Kluver is, I believe, a genius at sixteen years old. Wrote a book at the age of fourteen, which is a difficult enough feat to accomplish by itself – trust me, I completely understand, considering that I am roughly at that age still too paranoid to say how old I am, though and that I am an aspiring writer.
Then having that book published? And having considerably good reviews of the book? Not to mention that she’s already finished high school at the age of sixteen. And yet, with all that ingenuity, I don’t believe Cayla Kluver has actually got it right yet.
You want to know authors that get it right? And by this “it,” I mean that that author has got writing down to perfection. Those authors know how to make the reader interested enough to pick up the book. Those authors know how to make the reader unable to put down that book. And those authors definitely know how to make the reader crave for more. Those are writing geniuses. Cayla Kluver’s writing is beautiful. Yet there is a certain lack – or shall I say, excess? Cayla puts so much effort into description – describing dresses, which I understand to a point, considering that this story takes place in the eyes of a princess – but this description is completely overwhelming.
Honestly, who cares about the cut of a dress? There were other things that bothered me in this book, and all these things can be described in one word: I always want to read books that are unique. Not the same old, same old “girl moves to new town and meets boy at new school and falls in love with boy” etc. Reading the same story over and over makes me cry and tear out my hair in frustration. Her loyalty to her bodyguards London and Destari; her love for her father the Kingher mother the Queenand her sister Miranna; and her duty as Crown Princess of Hytanica.
Steldor is that arrogant and pompous jerk that wants to marry Alera.
And he would be crowned King if he did. Normally this would be the part where I rant on and on and on about why Legavy hate him and etc. My reaction was kljver of surprise purely because my sister abhors pretty boys. So I had legacyy why, and after I finished the book, she told me. And I think he actually does love Alera. Narian is the sort of bad boy that comes into a girl’s life.
Though I had no trouble in believing in their romance though I wish their romance would have been more gradual and not as fastI do have a problem with Narian – getting over the fact that he’s quite handsome and is also quite sweet and is also quite a bad boy.
Yes, all those things that I listed about him?
Legacy (novel series)
Better kluvver a jerk that bullies people. But my favorite people in this book? Two of their names start with the letter T and the other with a C. I absolutely adore Temerson and laugh enthusiastically at Tadark’s name, Temerson because I love his shy nature and Tadark because he is incredibly dense and manages to be laughable to others at the same time. And I highly respect Cannan for his decisions and authority.
The plot of this book was, in large part, original. Though there were a few bumps here and there that I didn’t like spoilers: What was she doing there in the first place? Why did Narian leave the city so suddenly? But one thing I definitely did not enjoy in the book was that cliffhanger ending! Never have I ever read a book with as big a cliffie ending as Legacy. And lastly, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this synopsis. I know synopses tend to be dramatic and often give away spoilers, though that is not so much in this casebut the tone of the synopsis is completely different from the tone of this book.
So people who are looking for blood and guts, you definitely will not find that in this enchanting love story. Legacy is an alluring story that simply is about a girl finding true love and her true self. But to be put more elaborately, Legacy is about a princess who falls in love with a boy she’s forbidden to wed because of her duty. To be put most elaborately, Legacy is about a princess named Alera who falls in love with a boy raised in an enemy country, so therefore she cannot wed him and will instead be married to an arrogant jerk who will become king.
But a good king, so everyone approves of the pairing. Okay, let me try this again. Legacy is an alluring love story that captured my heart mainly because it’s more than a love story. Legacy is a story about duty and sacrifice. Princess Alera of Hytanica and her younger sister, Miranna, had a rather peaceful and easy life. Their parents had to endure the cruelty of a war against the Cokyrians and suffered the lost of the rightful heir to the throne which caused Alera’s father to become King.
The Cokyrians never won but they stole the smiles of 49 Hytanican houses for they took with them one newborn from each.
