It should come as no shock to any of you that I love dystopian fiction! So when I saw this giveaway hop hosted by My Shelf Confessions and I Am a Reader, Not a Writer I signed up. What better way to start the month of Thanksgiving than by offering up for grabs a copy of one of my favorite dystopians?!
Back in June of this year I received an email from the publisher of this book asking if I would be willing to review it as a part of a blog tour. Being new to the blogosphere and just excited to receive the offer I accepted without much thought on the book. Well I’m here to tell you that The Legacy blew me away. If you loved The Hunger Games and Divergent, then I believe you will love this series! It’s written more for the adult crowd, in fact I’d classify it as New Adult (minus the erotica) and it is a little darker than the young adult dystopians you may be used to. If you are looking for a great read, get it now!!!!
I received this book via the publisher, . This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

Reviewing eARC Rating:
One man obsessed with power.
One woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him.
One war that changed the world.
Eric Dane has segregated the wealth and resources that remain, giving a select few the highest chance of survival and leaving the rest to starve!
World War 3 lasted twelve days and almost eradicated the human species. Growing up in post nuclear America, Rebecca Davis remained blissfully ignorant of the despotic leadership that had seized what was previously the most powerful nation in the world. When the truth is revealed and Rebecca discovers that everything she has been taught is a lie, she is determined to fight for the life that she has not been allowed to live.
In order to do this, Rebecca has to cross the boundary fences and venture out of the safety of the New United States, into the barren wastelands. It is there that she finds allies she never dreamed existed.
In Rebecca, the Resistance has finally found the ultimate weapon.
“You were given this life Rebecca, because you alone are strong enough to live it.”
An action-packed, adrenalin inducing thrill ride that will have you riveted until long after you have turned the last page.
