The Legacy Review

Featured Books for 11+ readers Featured Books for 13+ readers Recommended Children's eBooks

What started with The Declaration and continued with The Resistance is brilliantly brought to conclusion in The Legacy.  A thrilling finale in which Anna and Peter and their friends risk all to expose the truth behind the quest for Longevity.  The plot is pitch perfect, no loose ends are left and the characters continue to be brilliantly portrayed.  Thought-provoking on every page but also utterly compelling this trilogy should be on everyone’s reading list.


The Legacy Synopsis

When a Pincent Pharma lorry is ambushed by the Underground, its contents come as a huge surprise - not drugs, but corpses in a horrible state. It appears Longevity isn't working and the drugs promising eternal youth are failing to live up to their promises. A virus is sweeping the country, killing in its wake, and Longevity is powerless to fight it. When Richard Pincent of Pincent Pharma suggest that the Underground has released the virus, something has to be done to put the story straight and once and for all alert everyone to the truth.
