Reading Sacrifice was a little bittersweet. The conclusion is also where Alera makes her ridiculous assertion to the High Priestess that her people respect her as a ruler, and that her military leaders would never go behind her back or flout her. Cayoa her heartbreak, Alera must find a way to lead her kingdom to more hopeful times. This is very clearly a book written by a novice, and one that has never been edited.

I think one of the reasons I love this book, is reality. Long-winded descriptions of ballrooms, clothing, foods, textures, and more can slow down a story to a screeching halt.

Then they go through the gates guarded by two Palace Guards, who announce them to the other palace guards in the garden, and finally you are out in the garden, filled with the scent of jasmine and rose. I love him so much. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. A special thank caylz to Harlequin and NetGalley.

The new addition of Shaselle’s POV adds to the depth of the story and gives a new insight into the life of a girl in Hytanica since Shaselle is not of royalty. She has abandoned her copious clothing descriptions and actually has a pretty flair to the general tone of the story.

I don’t want to say a lot First let me just say wow. But her father’s choice of kluvre fills her with des. Don’t get me wrong, I finished the other 2 in caylla day each, and I enjoyed both novels, but oh god, this was just terrible! I got so desperate that I even decided to like Steldor, who seems to have had a complete personality rewrite.


Saying that I know a lot of people who enjoy this fully and well developed descriptions and it would help them to picture Hytanica in its full glory. He surprised me the most.

Legacy (Legacy, #1) by Cayla Kluver

I started skimming through pages then skipping ahead because I honestly could not get into it. In the midst of it all, she must cay,a maintain bh respect of her people, her guards, and her court, all while pleasing the love of her life. They were too much and took away soooo much from this beautiful story. With her days of freedom numbered, Alera finds herself concentrating on political affairs once the Cokyrians begin infiltrating the palace. Another rebellion – maybe this will make up for the rest of the dragging plot!

It gives new hopes for the characters and also the readers!

Legacy (novel series)

Legend and Allegiance were fantastic build up to Sacrificewhile fell short of what I was expecting. Why was this so important? Well, there’s the fact that Alera is the most unbelievable leader figure in the history of literature. Well, he’s a good man. A woman who chooses to betray her country by crashing her hopes for freedom and at the same time commiting her childhood friends to death, is not in my book a heroine.

The first boy disappeared on the day of his birth, on a night when the pale yellow moon that ruled the sky turned red and bathed the heavens in the ghastly color of blood, the same night the Empire of Cokyri abruptly ceased its merciless attack. But, I have to give her some credit and say I started to like her more after meeting Narian, and becoming more interested in the politics of the kingdom and learning self defense.

Alera is the eldest princess of Hytanica, a deeply misogynistic land where the King only has two daughters, so obviously whoever marries Alera will be the next king. With Alera we see her coming of age and trying to over come some of her immaturity, and naivety.

Cayla Kluver is amazing at character development. I believe this is a great first offering from a debuting writer who is so young. But as a person who thrives on the joys of common sense, I found myself cringing in disbelief at the decisions made inside these novels.

Landon fits the whole soldier in a royal setting thing I have going on. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Cokyri has invaded Hytanica, turning it into a province. And when rebellion finally does happen, Alera spends the whole time in her bedchamber, and by the next chapter, the rebellion has been subdued and we Readers are subjected to yet another dinner – this time with one of Shaselle’s suitors.

I wish I could say that she has become something of a character and has begun to learn what it means to be a leader.

Rather than kljver back and allowing others to wait on her every need, she establishes a sense of independence, a rarity in the male-driven society that was depicted. Read more Read less. I was hypnotized by its cover. And by this “it,” I mean that that author has got writing down to perfection.

And I think he actually does love Alera.

Finally, the men with a clever plan of hiding weapons in buildings come out and attack the Cokyrian soldiers when Narian isn’t there. My optimistic side kept insisting, “Maybe this will be all right.

Rather than just say that she’d worn it earlier, we’re kluvsr another description of it. Narian is the sort of bad boy that comes into a girl’s life.

As he and the guard assigned to remove him from the palace strode away, I was gripped by genuine sorrow instead of guilt, regret or denial.
