Publisher's Summary

For over five thousand years, there were always three binding rules for all Masters of Sinanju: 1) Payment is always in gold. No checks. 2) There is only one Master and one pupil. 3) No woman will ever be trained in Sinanju.

Sunny Joe Roam will throw the last two rules out the window in order to fulfill his tribe's oldest commitment. He will train both Stone Smith and his half-sister, Freya Williams, in the deadly art of Sinanju, ushering in a new era for the tribe. But will the lethal brother-sister duo be enough to help their new boss, Benjamin Cole, stop the Great Mexican Ninja Army from invading the southwestern United States?

    "Great continuation of life after Remo Williams"

    I grew up on the destroyer series buying my first two books 1 and 6 at a train station stop in Georgia on my way to Philadelphia in 1967. I read 48 of the series before getting bored. It's nice to see family continue the Legacy.

    "Story we good. Performance was not good."

    Ok, the story followed the same premise as Destroyer series. Had familier characters. But was too early in the series to present a super villion

    "Remo and Chiun have arrived at Audible at last!"
    Would you listen to Legacy again? Why?

    Probably


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have been a fan of the series for decades.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No first time. It was done quite well I thought.


    Any additional comments?

    I so do implore you to release more Destroyer Series books on audible! Please!!!

    "You've Destroyed the Destroyer Series"
    Would you try another book from Warren Murphy and Gerald Welch and/or the narrators?

    I would not try another book by Murphy and Welch. I had fond memories of the Destroyer Series and thought that this would take up where I had left off back in the 80's, but I was disappointed by this attempt.

    Story
    "Please record/make available more"
    What did you love best about Legacy?

    The authors' over the top sense of politcal humor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Senate hopeful Liz Warren because she's exemplifies how many people view politicians. Mainly she thinks she is smarter than everyone, is entitled, and will do anything to get elected.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is a full blown production with sound effects, multiple voices, and mood music. It brought the book alive. It made it almost like an audible action comic book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, like most of the Destroyer series, it was relatively short. So, it kept you involved. It's almost as if it was meant for one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The Destroyer Series is a long time favorite of mine. I wish Audible had more of these books available. (I have seen some on tapes...yes cassette tapes, at truck stops, yet Audible only has 2 available. I believe GraphicAudio has done many more.

    "A major let down to the Authors and Fans"

    I loved the written form of Legacy and gave it 5 stars on Amazon but sadly I advise against buying this audio due to its presentation. The Omni-present narrator is just flat and does little to make you want to listen to the story. The voice actors do not seem to really have grasp on the people they read and do horrible accents at times. Plus there is a background score of music that only makes me want to shut off the audio most of the time due to its just repeating over and over. I have listened to many fan based podcasts that I feel had more of a professional quality then this production. Very little of the humor and emotion that was present in the text was present to hear from the readers. The story from Mr. Murphy and Mr. Welch was a great addition to The House of Sinanju / Tribe of Sonanjo lo but was not represented well here.

    Great continuous series can't get enough of the Master of Sinanju! Can't wait for more audible books from Warren Murphy.

    Story
    "Didn't expect much but was still disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Warren Murphy and Gerald Welch and/or the narrators?

    No. I might go back and try the Destroyer series again, by Murphy and Sapir, just to see whether the books got worse over time or I just outgrew them. But nothing ever again from this new series or this team of Murphy and Welch.


    What was most disappointing about Warren Murphy and Gerald Welch ’s story?

    I was looking for a good martial-arts adventure novel, and I liked the Destroyer series in high school., so I tried this. The Destroyer was ridiculous but cheesy good fun. This book, however, was way over the line - poorly thought out, with plot elements carelessly manhandled into position with little thought of credibility. There was almost no attempt to add any authentic details or believable characters, motivations, situations, or even technology. I tried to go along for the sheer fun of it, but it was impossible to care about these characters or this farcical situation. This was like something phoned in by a stoner. And definitely not a martial-arts novel.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If this book had been fifteen minutes longer I'd have never finished it.


    Any additional comments?

    Someone is trying to cash in on the success of the earlier books. But instead of doing something better, they threw this together, badly. Sorry to bear bad news; I promise I'll do at least one positive review of something else to make up for it. :)

    Story
    "Legacy; Decedents of Remo Williams"

    I grew up with "The Destroyer" eventually "lost time to read fiction..." I am now somewhat of an insomniac so I lie awake/half awake and listen to "audio books" It reminds me of blu ray when it first came out (no classics) I couldn't find any "Remo Williams" and settled for "forgotten son" It grows on you I would have given 1 or 2 but after another listen gave it a 3 I would probably pay half of the 14 bucks I paid out of nostalgia...

    The story is classic Destroyer, however the reading is a little under par. This will not stop me listening to it again.....
