A review by Brenda Daniels.
This review is the first of three posts for The Legacy’s Blog Book Tour on A Feast of Tales.

The Legacy, by South African, KZN-based author, Melissa Delport, is the first book in The Legacy Trilogy.
An exciting futuristic adventure, The Legacy is set in a post-nuclear America in which rebels pit their strength against an evil government. This Resistance is ultimately led by feisty Rebecca Davis, a uniquely “gifted” leader who is also the romantic interest of the story.
Rebecca gets closer than anyone to the enemy, President of the New United States Eric Dane – by marrying him. This choice comes at great cost to her relationship with childhood sweetheart, Aidan, and involves using dangerous covert strategies and superhuman abilities. These artificially designed abilities are used by both warring parties and make for some thrilling fight sequences.
Fast-paced action, cliff-hanger chapters and surprising revelations keep readers hooked. I enjoyed becoming engrossed in Delport’s imaginative future world and I look forward to reading the next book in the trilogy, The Legion.
The Legacy (book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy) and The Legion (book 2) are now available at all good bookstores and the final book, The Legend, will be released early 2015.
