“Lackey and Edghill know how to spin a yarn… Fast-paced action… There’s also a touch of romance, and readers who appreciate everything from X-Men to Harry Potter will be begging for the sequel.” —Booklist on Legacies
“A really good read. The authors do a great job of juxtaposing a scary theme and the ordinary angst of adolescents. They also do a nice job with the metaphor of magical gifts as means of self-actualization. Legacies has enough action for reluctant readers, and enough character development for teens to see themselves in this group of friends. The book’s fans are sure to eagerly await Spirit’s discovery of her mage gift and further confrontations with the forces of evil.”—School Library Journal on Legacies
“The authors expertly balance a heady mixture of mystery and teenage romance.”—RT Book Reviews on Legacies
