The Legacy (Blog Tour & Review)

Hey there!

*all reviews are honest and not influenced by anyone*

I am reviewing The
by Melissa Delport for the Blog Tour I signed up for! My very first
blog tour as well :3 I have to say, I wasn’t expecting this book to exceed my
expectations, but it did. I loved it every minute I was reading!
man obsessed with power.
woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him.
war that changed the world.

“World War Three lasted twelve days.
Twelve days was all it took for mankind to devastate the planet and almost
eradicate the human race. No victor emerged from the ashes and billions lost
their lives.
We survivors lived through the bleakest
of winters. A primal existence became the new order, and the little that
remained of our humanity hung in the balance.
Then one man stood up and changed the
world. I believed, as did everyone else, that he was the hero of our time, the
man who had saved us from our own demise. His name is Eric Dane and he is the
President of the New United States of America. 

He is also my husband, and my greatest
I grew up oblivious to the truth, until
my father found me when I was nineteen years old. He told me about the many
horrifying facts that our new leader kept hidden from us. And he told me that
beyond the borders the Resistance grew and fought for freedom from the
oppression that Eric Dane had imposed on us.
My name is Rebecca Davis. I am
twenty-six years old, and in me the Resistance has found the ultimate weapon.”
A narrative of good and evil, love and passion, right
and wrong – and at the centre of the story a strong woman who is prepared to
sacrifice everything for the cause she believes in.
The Legacy is an action-packed, adrenalin-inducing thrill ride
which will leave you riveted long after you have turned the last page.

The book is about Rebecca, who is married to the
President of New America in a post-apocalyptic world, and is First Lady. But
she doesn’t love her husband at all. In fact, she secretly hates him and is
working with an those outside the fence to bring him down. But this is going to
be a lot harder than everyone thought when powers come into the story. As well
as love, family, friendships and above all, betrayals…

Okay, as far as the plot goes this was amazing! I love
reading YA but sometimes it all seems so same-y and you never get anything
different. In this book we have a Rebecca undercover, which is a bit of a new
aspect of a plot to me. There were also multiple plot twists, including a huge
one at the end which I won’t give away. The ending has me tingling and I really
can’t wait to get my ha 
nds on the second book as well. Because this book kept
me on my toes, never sure what would happen next, I loved it.

The beginning wasn’t my favourite bit because I felt like
there were some things Rebecca should’ve already known after living undercover
for so long, but from the beginning it only gets better. Reed, admittedly, is
my favourite character. He’s someone who is confident, playful and daring. Yet
he does have a sincere side to him, but it’s just harder to pull out. His
snarky comments and cool attitude definitely made him my fave.

Yes, there is a bit of a love triangle in here. But it
kind of works for this book and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It didn’t
get annoying or too boring at any point.

I was happy to read this! It kept me captivated all the
way through, and definitely earns the full five stars from me!

An avid reader herself, Melissa finally decided to stop ‘watching
from the sidelines’ and to do what is her passion.
“I was driving
home from work when inspiration struck, and a storyline started unravelling in
my head. For a few days it was all I could think about and eventually I
realised that the only way to get it out of my head, was to put it all down on
paper. I started writing, and that was that.
