Paperback, 280 pages
Expected publication: January 28th 2011 by Spencer Hill Press
series: Ganzfield #3
Maddie has more problems than the average seventeen-year-old:
A psychotic killer with superpowers wants her dead.
A serious medical issue makes a "normal" life impossible for her.
And she's about to be introduced to Trevor's grandparents.
Guess which one freaks her out the most? The Ganzfield series continues in this third installment.
I could not believe how lucky I was to get the ARC of Legacy! It is the third book in the Ganzfield Series by Kate Kaynak, and I am in love with the first two books! For my reviews on those first two, please check out Minder & Adversary.
So, we're thrust back into the world of Charms, Sparks, RV's and of course, Minders. I love being in this world and watching everyone learn to use their powers and grow stronger each day. Legacy was definitely everything I expected it to be. I loved returning to Trevor & Maddie's love story and their quest to stop a madman from destroying all of their kind.
The Trevor/Maddie love story is probably one of the reasons I am so infatuated with this series. I just find it so believable and beautiful. Honestly, I kept waiting for Kate Kaynak to throw another love interest into the mix (since that seems to be all the rage these days) and I am so glad that she didn't! To me, Trevor and Maddie are perfect and loving - without ever getting overly cliche. I especially loved that this time around, the two had to deal with normal teenage issues like whether to hang out with each other or hang out with friends. It made their relationship seem more authentic .
I hate giving away spoilers, but I couldn't talk about this without giving it away. The one and only part of this book that I actually did not like was the final fight with Isaiah. I wish it had been longer and I wish it had been more difficult to win. This was the one gripe that I had with part two as well. I feel like the entire novel, you're just waiting for this moment. You're waiting for this big fight, and then you kinda get short changed. Isaiah is supposed to be this amazing, formidable opponent - and I kept waiting for him to have something else up his sleeve, but he didn't.
Other than that one criticism, I must say that I am now and forever will be a Kate Kaynak fan. I love her writing style and I love her story ideas. The Ganzfield Series is one that I am enjoying so much, and I can't wait to read # 4 - Accused. Buy all three books and tell me what you think!
4 out of 5 stars.
