The Legacy by Gemma Malley


In a world where hardly anyone dies and children are outlawed, the world is beginning to fall apart. Truck loads of dead bodies are appearing, leaving the population in chaos.

It's been left down to the Underground to discover what's happening as people turn against them. Can they find out why before it's too late?


I loved the premise of the Declaration trilogy, what I wasn't a fan of is the execution. The first book grabbed me and I was in awe of it, but sadly with each book the potential wasn't delivered on and if I'm honest it makes me sad to see such potential go to waste.

The author has created a rather convincing world... and then destroyed it by tripping over herself creating sentences and things that don't tally. She hasn't gone backwards with her years and she's decided that World War 2 was a terrorist attack and has even miscalculated the start of WW2 by 3 years. This makes it so difficult to believe in what has been written.


Once again I find myself referring to the first book, I loved Peter, I loved Anna, their love story engaged me. I wanted them to be together, but more than that I needed them to find happiness in a world that seems to have forgotten what it is.

In this book though the characters seemed distant, unrelatable. Some of them where there only for a few pages, they were irrelevant to the storyline it was just going over things that we had already been told or had figured out.


The only word I can think of to describe this book is meh. It wasn't bad but it wasn't that good either. I really don't have that much of an opinion on it except for the disappointment I couldn't help but feel.

I originally gave this book 3 stars but the more I thought about it, and the more I wrote, the more I realised that this book just didn't deserve it. With this in mind I downgraded it to 2.5 stars for no reason other than it's half of 5. That's how disappointed I was.
