About the Book: This is not the time for the fight to end. Now is when the fight will begin. This is the time to regain what has been lost.
Queen of a fallen kingdom, secretly in love with the enemy.
Daughter of a murdered father, rebel with a cause.
One lives behind the former Hytanican palace walls and walks the razor's edge to keep the fragile peace in her beloved homeland. The other slips through the war-torn streets, seeking retribution for her family's tragedy, following whispers of insurgency.
Both face choices that will separate them from those they cannot help but love. As their stories intertwine, a conspiracy ignites that may end in slavery or death—or lead to freedom anew, if only each can face what must be sacrificed.
This is the third and final book in a series. There will be spoilers for books one and two but not really more than you get from the summary.My Thoughts: I feel like I have been waiting so long for this book! After reading book one (Legacy) I fell in love with the characters and their world. There is so much that is undecided in books one and two. I just could not wait to read Sacrifice and see what was in store for Alera and company.
From page one I was drawn back in to the world of the Legacy books. Cayla Kluver does a beautiful job with the descriptions and details on the story. She has also crafted characters I'm interested in and want to know more about. Some of them I really like and some frustrate me to no end. Either way... I wanted to see what happened to them and if they would grow and change. I loved checking in with the characters I've grown attached to (London!!) and seeing another side of characters who had smaller roles in the previous books. Sacrifice has more than one narrator and I just loved getting more perspectives!
If you're a lover of historical settings, fantasy, and romance this series is for you. Don't be daunted by the length of the the books... the pages will just fly by!
