Love once bonded them. Death tore them apart.
Nothing is the same for Rissa, Trystan, and Davion as they try to prevent their kingdoms from sinking into ruin.
Davion never thought he had a purpose in life, yet he now finds himself commanding men and invading villages in the name of his father.
With no memory of the man he was before he died, Davion has no reason to question his orders.
The woman he loved is now a stranger and the man he considered a brother is nothing but the enemy
As Trystan and Rissa fight to reclaim their father’s throne while searching for the final Tri-Gard member, Davion fights for himself, for his very soul.
He fights to keep himself from becoming the darkness everyone fears.
When he meets his old friends again, the reunion brings nothing but pain and confusion along with a new task: hunt down Trystan, Rissa, and the Tri-Gard to make sure none of them live to see magic return to the place he once called home.
I will be honest with you. When I started reading this sequel, the only thing I was fixated on is seeing Davi Alive and good again. The first book, Prophecy of Darkness, left me broken, so I dived into Legacy of Light, hoping that it would offer me a healing potion on a silver platter. When that didn’t happen during the first few chapters, I was so angry and devastated, just like the main characters. This goes to show how affected I was by the turn of events; how the character’s emotions were reflected on mine.
In this Grim tale that follows the aftermath of Davi’s death and sacrifice, the authors paint a very realistic and agonizing portrait, where the effects of the dark strokes were visible on the main characters, leaving the empaths gruesome and cold. Yes, I am specifically talking about Rissa. Davis’ death sent her to a very dark place, something that was very apparent not only in her actions, but also through her thoughts. Her POV was essential in this story, and I consider it to be one of the most important pillars that make this book what it is, an emotional rollercoaster ride that will take you into the darkest alley of losing the people you love the most & learning how to survive the aftermath.
Despite all of the turmoil this book has sent me through, I really enjoyed reading Legacy of light, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the final installment of The Legends of the Tri-Gard series.
I received a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
