Illusions shatter—and Sophie and her friends face impossible choices—in this astonishing eighth book in the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling Keeper of the Lost Cities series.
Sophie Foster wants answers. But after a lifetime of lies, sometimes the truth is the most dangerous discovery. Even the smallest secret comes with terrifying new responsibilities.
And Sophie’s not the only one with blank spots in her past, or mysteries surrounding her family. She and her friends are part of something much bigger than they imagined—and their roles have already been chosen for them.
Every clue drags them deeper into the conspiracy. Every memory forces them to question everything—especially one another. And the harder they fight, the more the lines blur between friend and enemy.
Legacy is book 8 out of a currently nine-book series, and with each one, Sophie uncovers more about those who created her, those who parented her (or didn’t), and she grows. Legacy, for me, was the book that moved this closer to becoming a young adult. Like any middle-grade series, it has to increase with the readers that started reading it. The character has to experience things that the age group it is meant for will identify with, or it loses its connection to the readers. Legacy allows Sophie to share her first kiss, enabling her to explore her feelings with her two love interests, and she dives deeper into her parentage. I am way beyond the age group (i am 43) that this series is written for, but I find it refreshing, mind-blowing, and intriguing, and it keeps me guessing from book to book, on to unlocked book 8.5.
