"Legacy Kore is an average seventeen year old with your basic insane crush on the hottest guy in school... rather Adin Shepard was the hottest guy in school before he graduated a couple of weeks ago. Now it’s summer vacation and she’s not sure when she’ll get to see him again. Until he shows up at her surprise seventeenth birthday party. Cue saliva glands--it’s time to drool.Let me guess. You didn't read the synopsis. Wait a minute, I'm slightly incorrect. You don't know what is the synopsis. (It's the paragraph above.) Most people are too lazy to read a very short paragraph about this size (This paragraph size).
But her giddiness is cut short when her guardian delivers an emotional blow, telling Legacy her mother hadn’t died when she was baby, but that she’d left for Legacy’s protection all those years ago. After the initial shock, she expects some story about how her mother was in the Witness Protection Program or something else just as crazy, but when she’s told that her mother is a Greek Goddess and that Legacy is changing into one too, she thinks her guardian needs a trip to a mental hospital. Legacy a goddess? Um, yeah. Right. And her BFF is the Easter Bunny.
While trying to make sense out of something that was impossible to believe, Adin asks Legacy out on a date. She is thrilled that her fantasy might become a reality, but when she meets the new guy in town, River, she discovers everything isn’t always as it seems, and the legacy she wants just might not be the legacy she is destined to have."
My thoughts before reading: "Oooo! A book to read before the next book in the Percy Jackson Timeline comes out!" and "Greek Gods and Goddess? Sign me up!" and "I love Greek mythology. I'm definitely reading this book."
My thoughts during reading: "What? That is weird." and "Huh? I'm confused" and "What the freak? Myths said way different things."
The plot was good. I felt that everything was quick and easily understood. There isn't much of a love triangle, thankfully, but there is a slight chance that there may be one. (Oh, boy. Trouble is brewing by M.W. Muse. Let's hope the next book isn't going to be a love triangle.)
The writing needs to be edited a little more. There is a lot of grammar errors.
Legacy. She's basically trying to find the villain. She's playing cat and mouse with a certain evil person who happens to be someone's mom.
Adin... Odd. Adin will have readers guessing who he really is. Hint: He's supposed to be matched with Aphrodite. She's the goddess of love and beauty. It will be a tough one for Legacy to defeat. How can she fight against love and beauty?
River... Who is he? Hint: He is a minor character in the myths. The myth involves Poseidon, Athena, and Perseus.
Rating: Three out of five
