Review: Legacy by Cayla Kluver

Legacy (Legacy, #1)


Cayla Kluver



I noticed his eyes. They were blue, sharp and intense. Despite the youthful glows of his suntanned face, his eyes were cold and unfriendly, suggesting he had great experience in the world and was now expecting the worst.
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 and 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.

Review: A special thank you to Harlequin and NetGalley. 
The cover reminded me of The Luxe series, which I adore. This book was amazing, I loved it. I can't believe the author was so young when she wrote it! 

Legacy is the story of Princess Alera of Hytanica. On her 18th birthday she's expected to marry. Princess Alera is a strong character. Lord Steldor, the Captain of the Guard's son, is her father's pick for her to marry. Alera stand Lord Steldor, personaly I can't either. He is an arragont, conceited, jerk. Steldor thinks hes God's gift to women. I was intreged by London, Alera's bodyguard, he has a mysterious past. My heart broke for him in some parts of the book, like when Alera had... I don't want to give away too much, I'll just say I couldn't believe that Alera would treat him the way she did after he has been in her life for as long as he has. I had the same idea that Alera had, to marry London, hes my pick, even though he is twice her age. He's in his 30's or 40's, I think. I want to find out more about London. And then theres Narian, a boy of enemy lands of the Cokyri. Narian is kindhearted and sweet. He seems mature for his age. There's not a lot of him in the book, which was kind of dissapointing for me. 

The end of the book left my mouth hanging open, I wanted Narian (or London, somebody at least) to rush in and stop the wedding. I'm so excited that the second book Allegiance, which is now on NetGalley, and I can't wait to start reading it! 

4/5 Stars
