Review: Legacy

Legacy Legacy by Hannah Fielding
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

***First off, I want to thank Ms Hannah Fielding for sending me a copy of her book in exchange of an honest review. This doesn’t influence my review in any way.***

Okay. First thoughts, “Oh hey I like this because there are undercover mission, and then there’s romance. This should be fun.” And then, “Okay, so far so good.” Lastly, “When is the story gonna catch up?” “Still nothing.” “What the hell.” Conclusion, “That’s it. I’m done.”

Truth is I was excited to read this book because it was said that this was fast paced romance and, again, there’s undercover stuff. But as I read this and managed to read up to a hundred pages, there’s nothing going on except two people attracted to each other but not doing anything about it. And then the rest is how it was describe their attraction to each other.

Bes, as every time I read this book I get a headache. I don’t know why. It’s one of the reasons why I can’t seem to continue reading it.
The concept of the story is pretty good. It has some kind of mystery but it’s not like other mystery romance books. The only thing is, some things seem to contradict the other things in the book. Like Luna’s attraction towards Ruy is so strong but then she doesn’t want to have any other relationship towards him. It’s like she’s not ready or something else but then it wasn’t totally explained why. She surely wants to be with him but when an opportunity comes, she won’t take it.

It’s like there’s a chase and then when they finally caught each other, Luna will wake up and then run again and then there’s a chase again. It keeps going and going and I got tired of it. I keep waiting for something to happen, something like, I don’t know, Luna finding something that is actually essential to her real purpose in being in Spain. But no, there’s none.

Also, one thing that I can’t get through in this book is the narration. It’s in third person point of view and it’s mostly on Luna’s. I’m fine with it. The only problem is the paragraphs after paragraphs of describing other things aside their feelings. I mean sure, it’s important to describe the surroundings of the setting of the scene to paint a nice picture inside your head but sometimes it’s too much. And if you haven’t noticed up till now, bessies, I’m not a fan of too much describing books.

Every time I open the book I keep saying to myself that I’ll finish this now. Then when I start reading, my mood is gone and I can’t continue. I can’t keep reading. And then I realized that it’s harder for me to DNF a physical book than an ebook because no matter what I do or say to myself just to make me finish it, I really can’t finish reading it, I DNFed it. I got tired of reading of something that there’s nothing happening except two people obviously attracted to each other but not doing anything about it.

To wrap this up, I hope I can say that it’s a good story. But I didn’t manage to reach the end of it to say that. I don’t also know if I should recommend it or not because for me, I didn’t quite like it. There was nothing happening in it. But if you bessies want to try and read it, then go ahead. You might like it.

That’s it for my review of this book bessies. No rating because I DNF it so I don’t think I have the right to rate something I didn’t finish. :D
