The Legacy Series by Ellery Kane is almost complete.
How do you want to feel today?
In 2041, the choice is yours.

"A dark, emotional story about rebellion, closely in the tradition of the Divergent and Legend trilogies." ~ Kirkus Reviews

San Francisco is deserted, the Bay Bridge bombed, and the BART subway trains grounded. The Guardians, members of an elite and mysterious government-appointed military police force, are maintaining order at all costs—thanks to emotion-altering drugs like Emovere that suppress fear and anxiety. Lex Knightley, daughter of a prominent forensic psychiatrist, risks entering the devastated city to partner with the Resistance, a group of rebels intent upon exposing the dangers of Emovere. Lex discovers an ally in Quin McAllister, a magnetic Guardian Force recruit with a haunting past that binds them together. As she uncovers the secrets of the Guardian Force and confronts the truth about her family, Lex begins to realize that even those closest to her are not quite who they seem.

About the Author

Forensic psychologist by day, young-adult novelist by night, Ellery Kane has been writing—professionally and creatively—for as long as she can remember. Just like her main character, Lex, Ellery loves to ask why, which is the reason she became a psychologist in the first place. Real life really is stranger than fiction, and Ellery’s writing is often inspired by her day job. Evaluating violent criminals and treating trauma victims, she has gained a unique perspective on the past and its indelible influence on the individual. An avid short story writer as a teenager, Ellery recently began writing for enjoyment again, and the Legacy series was born.

Ellery’s debut novel, Legacy, has received several awards, including winning the Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, young adult, e-book category.

My Review:
This is a great YA read, It has a great romance in question, and has all the makings of a great dystopian. A world destroyed, a resistance and death around every corner. Lex did not think that she has such an important role? However at only time will tell she has to save the world. Can she do it? Is Quin going to help or hamper her progress? I can not wait to read book 2 and 3 to see if these mismatched characters make the right decisions. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy. all opinions are my own.
