a good conclusion with great unexpected plot twists ( )

2.5 stars. A serviceable end to the trilogy, not as good as The Resistance. ( )

I loved loved the beginning. To me the book should have stayed with that concept. it did not need the action like we had in book 2 with the underground. it was interesting enough to me what would happen once a virus became active in this world. It was such a great idea. People who had use the medicine suddenly becoming sick. a virus, what would happen. Now we get the same kind of thing as what happened in book 2. Again Anna is taken but peter and his half brother manage to get into the building. I also thought the ending was very unrealistic especially the role that Derek Samuels appeared to have played. The trusted soldier of Richard. He wanted the underground to win but tortured and killed so many people and lets not forget many children. The ones he wanted to save? Sorry a bit unbelievable. 3 stars this time. ( )

So, this is the end of the Declaration series as it currently stands and I found The Legacy to be a moving and befitting ending to a series that has kept me on my toes, questioned philosophical and ethical matters and delivered them in Gemma Malley's beautiful writing.

However, it has to be said that the first three quarters of the novel would have given it three stars. I did enjoy the story and the development of Jude but it didn't have the panic and urgency that the other two books did, I found it quite slow at times. Also, I don't think I will ever like Anna or Peter has characters. Anna is whiny, pathetic and behaves like a 5 year old, I can't find any kind of endearment towards her. Equally, Peter is moody, selfish and at times seemingly sexist also; there is a sense that the men must protect their women in this whole series which aggravated me. By the way, Sheila is an awful character.

So, how did the last quarter redeem itself? Well, the ending was fantastic. Seriously, I never saw the twist coming, I even feel confident in pointing out there's a twist and that you still won't see it coming until the last minute. I want to say more about the ending and the revelation that came about but I simply won't ruin it for other readers, but trust me that the slow start is worth every paragraph.

The genre is questionable. It is in some ways a science-fiction novel because of the future society, longevity drugs, etc, etc. But it is a lot more focused on relationships and people than the science aspect. It doesn't lack much for it but it would of course be better if the people were likeable, which most of the time they are not. And aside from the ending, I think my favourite part of the book is when Julia and her husband make the decision to die naturally together, I found it incredibly touching and just a really sweet sideplot. I can say that I hope this isn't the last we hear of Gemma Malley.

A shorter book than the two previous ones in this trilogy - The Legacy wraps up the story and answers many of those puzzling questions which have emerged throughout the series. The story was as engaging as ever with a plague hitting the users of Longevity, causing life changing effects. The books work because it is all so plausible. Good dystopian fiction. ( )
