Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Rebecca Cantrell's sequel to the award-winning The World Beneath, software genius Joe Tesla confronts an equally brilliant and far more powerful foe.

Still crippled by agoraphobia and confined to the tunnels under New York City, Joe is haunted by the fact that he cannot even attend his father's funeral. His father's death brings threats to the safety of Joe's underground home: guilt over the broken relationship that can never be healed, a mysterious box of papers inherited from eccentric inventor Nikola Tesla, and a ruthless enemy determined to steal those papers no matter the cost.

Mystified by why his inheritance is so valuable, Joe and his service dog, Edison, follow clues left a century ago by Joe's famous ancestor to reveal the power of his family legacy. While Joe must rely on his considerable talents as a hacker, he must also reach out to friends.

But whom can he trust as he battles to save his beloved city from...The Tesla Legacy?

    Story
    "Brilliant second book."

    While I really enjoyed the first book, this one just took my breathe away! Breathtaking adventure, tense scenes and the heart pounding action, makes for an amazing book!

    The synopsis pretty much tells all so I'll get straight to my thoughts.

    One thing I love about this story is Joe and his dog. Despite his agoraphobia, Joe will do all he can to solve the mystery of the oscillator. He shows that even with the debilitating condition, he can lead a fairly normal (for him anyway) life. That even stuck in the darkness, he can push through. It did break my heart though to see what he went through when he sees the outside. Poor Joe!!!

    And as for Edison, he rocks!! Such a faithful, loyal and smart dog.

    As with the first, this is a fast paced, edge of your seat, ride and one you won't want to get off. The author is a phenomenal writer and captured my attention from the very first page. I loved how she brought the Tesla inventions into the story and found the inventions themselves to be fascinating. It truly shows how much effort and research she put into this book, but you know what, it was worth it because the story was amazing. I will be checking out more of her books!!!

    In all, this was an amazing second book filled with action, adventure and suspense. I loved the plot and how it came together, I loved the characters and how well written and developed they are and I loved the fact that it was so exciting and engrossing. I started this and found it hard to take out my headphones, particularly with what happened to Joe!! My poor heart was in my mouth!

    This book, and indeed, the series is a must read!! I highly recommend and I honestly can't wait for the next installment in this fantastic series.

    Jeffrey Kafer was as awesome as always. It's so easy to become engrossed in an excellent book, when you have such an easy to listen to narrator. Every book I've listened to that's read by him, he always delivers! If you are new to audios, I'd recommend listening to one of his narrations.

    *I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

    Story
    "Tesla and Edison Make it Personal"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Tesla Legacy to be better than the print version?

    I haven't yet read the ebook version. I will say this, after finishing a listen of "The World Beneath", the first in the Joe Tesla series, I went and purchased this audio book. I'm frugal to the extreme so saying that is a strong endorsement of Rebecca Cantrell's work.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Human - Joe Tesla, er Smith ... but truly Edison by a nose.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The background with information about Nichola Tesla. He was a fascinating brilliant man. The information is woven throughout the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The characters in this and the first Joe Tesla audio book are ones I quickly came to care for.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a well crafted series that has made me want more! Word needs to be made about Jeffrey Kafer. His narration is superb. I have some hearing impairment, and didn't have to strain to hear and comprehend his performance. Not overly loud, just clear and articulated. It seems he is having fun, but in a professional sense too.

    Good stuff!

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

    Yes and very nearly did.


    Any additional comments?

    Book two is as good as book one, the story is great and characters well developed. I feel for Tesla and his fear.

    Good story writing and narration is equally as good.

    "Another great Joe Tesla story."
    If you could sum up The Tesla Legacy in three words, what would they be?

    Energetic, suspesnseful and great.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    Jeffrey Kafer's performances are always solid and you can count on him to do a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    Rebecca Cantrell has created a world that I enjoy visiting. The Joe Tesla books have all been great and I can't wait to visit his underground world again.

    Story
    "Excellent Sequel to Thriller Set in NYC's Tunnels"
    Any additional comments?

    The Tesla Legacy by Rebecca Cantrell is an excellent heart-racing follow up to The World Beneath, where we first meet MIT graduate and millionaire Joe Tesla. In the first book we learn that soon after developing a surveillance program that tracks cell phones and emails for patterns to prevent terrorism (similar to the computer program used in the TV show "Person of Interest"), someone poisoned Joe's brain that turned him into an agoraphobic. Instead of enjoying the fruits of his invention and successful business, he suffers debilitating panic attacks whenever he goes outside or he is in crowded places. In the Tesla Legacy, we see that Joe is slowly adapting to his new life living in the tunnels under Grand Central Station in New York City with the assistance of his canine companion, Edison, and his part-time investigator/bodyguard, Vivian.

    The story really takes off with the death of Joe's father, who bequeaths him papers and a doll that once belonged to his ancestor, Nikola Tesla (one of the greatest electrical inventors of all time and a contemporary of Thomas Edison). Although innocent looking at first, it turns out that Joe is given an oscillator — a type of sonic bomb —and more than one bad guy is willing to kill Joe to obtain it. Almost immediately after Joe figures out the key to turning it on, Joe is attacked, severely injured, and left for dead. Soon thereafter, the device is placed on a prominent landmark in New York City. The rest of the story is a race to figure out a way to track the device before it destroys much of New York City and kills millions of people.

    I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Jeffrey Kafer who did a fantastic job. He really brought the characters to life giving each one their own distinct voice. His performance includes the necessary urgency that properly sets the mood for a thriller such as this. I can't wait for the next audiobook written by Rebecca and narrated by Jeffrey. I short, I highly recommend this audiobook!

    "Loved it"

    Again,. as the first novel, very exciting and couldn't put it down until the end. I did feel that the first novels' story was more believeable. However, this 2nd novel was well told.

    "Not quite as exciting as book one, but still good"

    More like 3-1/2 stars. Not quite as good as the first book, in my opinion, but still entertaining. I really like Joe Tesla and Edison. I feel like there wasn't as much time spent beneath the city in this installment and a little too much time was spent with the villains of the novel. I am looking forward to book three, though. Again, solid narration by Jeffrey Kafer. Definitely recommend it in either print or audio format.
