Publisher's Summary

Millennia ago, a magical disaster caused the fall of a great worldwide civilization, the end of a golden age. New civilizations have fought their way up from the ancient destruction and chaos, knowing little of the lost world that preceded them or the details of its fall. Corus today is a world of contending countries, of humans, but also of strange animals and supernatural creatures. It is a place of magical powers and of a few people who are talented enough to use them. Alusius, the hero of the story, is one.

start at book 4

Any additional comments?

the series is a compelling one and very enjoyable with the noted exception of book 7 but the series starts 3 quarters of the way through the timeline so if you haven't yet started listening to the series I would suggest you start at book 4-6 if you really love it then there are an additional 2 books that are also before books 1-3 in the timeline but aren't as good and are irrelevant to the rest of the series and can be missed out if you're low on credits (or patience)

Rinse and repeat

What would have made Legacies better?

Not being a virtual complete re-hash of his previous books especially the imager series. Swap 'imaging' for 'talent', 'Quaeryt' with 'Alusius', well you get the picture and you have exactly the same books even down to the get out of jail for free everytime 'invisibility shields' -yawn!!!

What could L. E. Modesitt, Jr. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The author having a new idea for a story

Would you be willing to try another one of Kyle McCarley’s performances?

He sounds virtually identical to William Dufris who narrates the imager series so adds to the frustration of 'he just changed the names'!

What character would you cut from Legacies?

All of them

Any additional comments?

I keep trying this authors books but this is the last straw, I'm not falling for buying the same story again, and again, and again .......
