Publisher's Summary

Secrets upon secrets were weaving into a strange and mysterious fabric that would ultimately clothe his future....

A sensible young nobleman and his fiery sister live in an experimental medieval village. Sealed inside this biodome since infancy, Leaf and Willow have been groomed by The Code to build a sustainable world, one devoid of Outsider interference. One that believes death will give way to life. 

Their walled garden is predictable and peaceful — until the unthinkable happens. 

With his dying breath, their father bequeaths a family secret, placing an invisible crown of power on Leaf's head. Grief-stricken and afraid, the siblings defy their upbringing by connecting with Fillion, an Outsider who is linked to their lives in shocking ways. Their encounter launches Fillion into a battle with his own turbulent past as he rushes to decode the many secrets that bind them together — a necessity if they are all to survive. 

Cultures clash in an unforgettable quest for truth, unfolding a story rich in mystery, betrayal, and love.

Fantastic narration for my new favorite series.


Second place tie between the cover, narrator and character development. First place definitely goes to world building. I haven't loved being inside a story world so much since Harry Potter. However, I don't think the narrator could've done a better job. He was fantastic!

I enjoyed how the epigraphs at the beginning of each chapter are woven into the story and the extra touch they give.

Perfect Blend of old meets futuristic.

Intriguing science without so much that the details become distracting.

A growing mystery with wonderful characters.

I'm grateful that this first story was finally made into an audiobook since I can't currently do any reading due to migraines. I devoured this and will be eagerly awaiting the audio books for the rest of the series. I received a free review copy.

Gorgeous!

Such a lovely book! I started reading Legacy in print, and as soon as I saw it released in audio format, I immediately bought it and found my place in the recording. There’s something so moving about the narrator when he speaks Sundin’s gorgeous words. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!

An Overall Magical Tale

A very well told story that has a lot of magic, wonder & drama. It's a story akin to the likes of Tolkien, C.S. Lewis for a new generation.
The only true problem I have with the audio narration is just ok. Certainly good to listen, but feels rather slow and lack of changes to voice/tone that lets the listener know that a different character is talking or a sudden change of events.
I still overall recommend it to anyone that enjoys all of fantasy literature.

Compelling

What does Sunil Patel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Fantasy sci-fis are all about creating an immersive atmosphere and the narrator Sunil Patel does this perfectly. His rich, deep voice provides the perfect vehicle for a captivating piece of storytelling.
