Legacy in Legend (Legacy in Legend #0.5, 1, 2)
by Barbara Pietron
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
New from award-winning YA author Barbara Pietron, an ebook bundle of the prequel and first two books in the Legacy in Legend series.
About the series: In Thunderstone, Jeni and her family gather at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, to spread her grandfather’s ashes in the Mississippi Headwaters. While they are there, they agree to meet again at various locations along the Mississippi River to remember him as they trace his journey to the Gulf of Mexico. These gatherings set the foundation for the Legacy in Legend series. Every time the family assembles, Jeni comes in contact with a malicious otherworldly element. These frightening and perilous encounters are no help in Jeni’s search for her spiritual heritage, as the supernatural entities come from a variety of mythologies and lore. Yet each vengeful confrontation makes it more important that she discover and harness whatever power she possesses so she can protect herself and her loved ones and, ultimately, end the deadly attacks.
The Legacy in Legend Series brings together mythology and suspense along with a little bit of romance when Jeni meets Shattered Ice, an apprentice medicine man. The prequel, Heart of Ice, is about Ice before he meets Jeni. Thunderstone and Veiled Existence are told from both Jeni’s and Ice’s point of view.

Legacy in Legend Trio ebook - Barbara Pietron
Heart of Ice, Thunderstone and Veiled Existence
This is such a great series of books. Barbara did a wonderful job of putting so much detail into the story, making it a lot easier to visualize. All that is happening with the magical powers makes it very captivating.
The characters are well-developed and it's easy to get to know each of their personalities and to feel their emotions well.
The setting is also easy to visualize. The stories flow well from chapter to chapter which makes it hard to find a place to put the book down.
I highly recommend this series of books to other readers who like fantasy, witchcraft and other fun things including a good romance.
I give this series of books a literary rating of 5/5

When she’s not writing, Barbara works in a library where she’s tortured by all the books she has yet to read. She’s a cult fan of the movies Labyrinth and Nightmare Before Christmas and a fan of all things Tim Burton. Barbara lives in Royal Oak, Michigan with her husband, daughter and a cat that often acts like a dog.
