    This book was so bad that I can't even bring myself to write a review pointing out all the things I found bad about it. Let me just preface by saying that by the halfway point, I was seriously annoyed at all the characters and the lack of anything happening, but I wanted to finish for the sake of being able to write a review without anyone saying that not finishing a book is a caveat to writing a credible review.

    This ebook was provided for free from Amazon.

    I had three issues with this book, thre...more
    I'm a huge fan Greek mythology and thus a huge fan of books about Greek myths/gods and goddesses. Unfortunately this book is geared towards those who have little (to no) knowledge of Greek myths OR their gods and goddesses. Because the main character is practically the only one who lacks the aforementioned knowledge, any characters she meets that have any ties to said myths are spelled out. This was frustrating because I was able to put clues together so much faster/earlier than Legacy was told...more
    This was a sweet take on Greek mythology mixed in with teen love. Legacy lived her life like the typical high school girl, right down to the mad crush on long-time friend and local hottie Adin. She was completely in the dark about who she really is and what fate has in store for her. That is, until her seventeenth birthday rolled around and suddenly her guardian Lissa was talking gods and goddesses like it's everyday conversation. Thus began the whirlwind discovery of secrets and truths for Lega...more

    I love stories that incorporate the ancient God’s and this story wasn’t a disappointment. I love the plot and loved the characters, Adin more than Legacy but I’m a female so that’s a given. I can’t wait to get my hands on the second book!

    The characters were great. The love / puppy love scenes were great. Heck the overall descriptions of the scenes were great. In fact, I could clearly see the scenes. I could feel the butterflies, the overall feeling the two were having on their first date. It bro...more

    I had to stop reading this book because it was just... I don't even know. I love the mention of Greek Gods in books but this one took it way over the top and confused the hell out of me.

    The plot was basically a girl, Legacy, stuck in a love triangle. Her childhood sweetheart finally asked her out but there is always the other guy who loves her. On Legacy's seventeenth birthday, her guardian told her that her mother was alive. She thought her parents died in a car crash. Also, her mother is a Gr...more
    The cover of this book drew me in. It's pretty, it's magical, it's got a glow to it. Sadly, this was the only thing about the book that I thought was magical.

    I DNF'd this, you guys. I'm really getting bad at this. I don't like to leave a book unfinished, but I couldn't read this any longer. It was torture.

    The characters were shallow and one dimensional. The plot was... well, what was the plot? Because I read 60 pages and still hadn't learned anything about what was happening to Legacy. (view sp...more
    To be honest, it's a really good thing this book was free. I really think goodreads needs to update the site and allow for zero stars, too, but what do I know?

    This book wasn't just bad, it was horrendous. I don't think I got fifty pages in before I deleted this from every device that has a nook app or is my nook.

    Let's start with the girl's name. Legacy.

    What. The. Flying. Fuck.

    The author couldn't give her a more normal, and please believe me, I use that word stringently, name? Madison, maybe? A...more
    While the plot was interesting, the main character was just like Bella in Twilight; unable to do anything but mope unless she had her man around. Infact, this novel was alot like Twilight, except for Greek Mythology.

    I bought this series for $.99 because my daughter and I love Percy Jackson. This series is about a girl who finds out she is Persephone and all her other friends find out secrets about themselves related to Greek mythology. At least, that's what the blurb said.

    In fact this book promotes rape culture, teenage sex, and pornography.
    1) 85% of the book talks about how Legacy and her boyfriend Adin touch each other; how she keeps trying to push his limits; how good it feels. It is extremely graphic....more

    I'm going to preface the rest of this review by saying that I didn't finish this book. I made it to the 56 percent mark before completely giving up on it. It was a hard decision as I hate giving up on books, but I had been struggling through the entire thing. The problem is that even if I have a large problem with a book, I can typically make it through it. However, I had multiple major problems with this book, and they all piled on top of each other and became too much.

    Let's start with what's t...more
    *This is my honest review in exchange for the free kindle copy of Goddess Legacy*

    So in short Goddess Legacy is basicly a retelling of a Greek Myth (view spoiler). It's a neat little package of love and mystery.

    ....What I didn't like so much
    So what I didn't like where the characters, by themselves they are OK kind of 2 dimensional and transparent but I guess you could say that they have admirable traits... mabye too admirable. They have pretty much perfec...more
    Review also posted on Book Lovin' Mamas

    I love Greek mythology so when I read the synopsis of this book, I definitely knew I needed to check it out.

    M.W. Muse tells a story of a girl named Legacy, who's life is changed the minute her guardian tells her the truth about her parents and what is going to happen to her when she turns 18. She does not believe her at first until she starts having strange dreams.
    Everything is about to fall in place though for Legacy. The hot boy she grew up with, Adin, as...more

    I was excited to read this book after reading the premise. I absolutely love Greek mythology so I sat down hoping I'd found a gem. The story was okay, it was hard to buy her guardian 'casually' telling her the mother she thought was dead was actually alive and that she was to become a goddess on her 18th birthday. Then she upped and disappeared!!
    I also couldn't quite get into the fact ALL of the characters were so super perfect. Granted Greek Gods in my opinion are all perfect but it took away f...more
    Omfg. That is all. I got really fed up with this book, even though I liked it. Up until the end, Legacy and Adin were like "WERE IN LOVE AND WE'RE GOING TO GET MARRIED AND blahh, blahh, BLAHHH", then there was some drama with River and how they (Legacy and River) were meant to be and more "blahh, blahh, BLAHH". Then at the end she figures it allllll out. What annoyed me the most was that most of the time, Adin was sweet and amazing, but in the end he kept it all from Legacy. And he was telling h...more
    I’m a huge fan of greek mythology especially about Persephone/Hades’ relationship. But then I’m a bit disappointed with how the story goes despite it being intriguing.

    I’m not sure on what to say about the characters in Goddess Legacy but except that they need more character development especially Legacy. Even if she is a teenager I find that her character is too selfish and too immature. Plus her relationship with Adin seemed to be unrealistic in terms of how there feelings for each other came t...more
    I really wanted to like this book. I pushed through it and every time I wanted to quit reading it, I kept going. I just felt like it had to get better, but it got worse. I am loving Greek myth retellings--especially the Persephone and Hades myth--but this was one of the worst I've read.

    The mythology of the book makes little sense. Though it's explained multiple times, I still walked away from it scratching my head and wondering how in the world that works. In this series, gods and goddess not on...more

    Ugh this book was so hard to get through that I wasn't even able to finish it! The author spent way too much tie focusing on the clothing choices of the teenagers along with the immature style of the "sexual scenes" that never really got farther than caressing each other's legs under clothing and how it took Adin all day to "calm down". Granted, things might have heated up in the last half of the book but it was just painful to read and made me feel dumber for reading it than when I started.
    I like Greek Mythology. I really do. This...was just horrible. It ruined all of the beautiful stories associated with Greek ancestry. Goddess Legacy was not about her being a goddess. It was about her vomit inducing relationship with Adin. I hated him. He was strange, awkward, over bearing, and fake. Would you like a little wine with that cheese? The whole book was "your my everything" blah blah "we just got together but we're connected" puke puke "I love you so much" bang head against wall. The...more

    Review to come!

    1/18/14 Review just in!

    Sorry, I've been so busy at work I haven't had much time to write my reviews and the little time I do have I like to spend on reading. Hmm, about this book, it was a cool twist on Greek Mythology and the concept could have been awesome had it been executed properly. I feel like the plot and characters were under developed and lacked any major conviction or entertainment, but it wasn't pointless or sleep worthy. I was able to keep my eyes open and finish it...more
    I really enjoyed it! The author tried to make it seem like a normal life by when Lisa told legacy, legacy thought she was mad! And I think the author succeeded!
    I really enjoyed the way the reader mixed the right amount of, love, mystery and fiction into one! I am so glad I found this free book on the App Store!
    Anyway I can't take long to right my review as normal because I want to go back to reading the second book now! When u read this book I guarantee u won't be able to stop! Hope u enjoy it a...more

    (A freebie from Bookrooster. Which, actually, I forgot until I went looking for another one on there that this was from it. Oops!)

    The words that kept popping in my mind: Been there, done that, I know how this turns out.

    Same concept really as the Goddess Test series, or Oh My Goddess, or pretty much any greek mythology YA in the last 5 years. Torn between two equally hot, mysterious men, trying to uncover the secrets her past hide...more

    This is absolutely the most unique take I've read on a Greek myth. Instead of being the actual gods, or reincarnations of gods, these gods clone themselves, and their little clones are given the opportunity to ascend to full divinity. I also liked that there were monsters in the story. This author is also very good at extracting every possible iota of sexual tension from a situation and getting it all down on the page. There's this one scene where Adin hugs Legacy, just hugs, and I swear those t...more

    Let me guess. You didn't read the synopsis. Wait a minute, I'm slightly incorrect. You don't know what is the synopsis. (It's the paragraph above.) Most people are too lazy to read a very short paragraph about this size (This paragraph size).

    My thoughts before reading: "Oooo! A book to read before the next book in the Percy Jackson Timeline comes out!" and "Greek Gods and Goddess? Sign me up!" and "I love Greek mythology. I'm definitely reading this book."

    My thoughts during reading: "What? Tha...more

    It's not often I will give up my sleep for reading, being the dedicated bookworm that I am I still love a good night's sleep more, but I could NOT put this book down. I absolutely, positively could not resist it. I was up until 2am finishing it. Love, LOVE, LOVED it!!!!

    The character, relationship, and plot development are a nearly perfect balance of mystery and satisfying a bit of your curiosity at the same time to keep you entertained and want...more
    FREE is always a good thing right? In this case, yes. I was pleasantly surprised by this author! She shares my love and desire of wanting to get through the entire series of a story without having to wait FOREVER for the next book in the series to come out. And don't even get me started on the authors who don't even FINISH a series but keep going and going and going, you get the picture.

    M.W. Muse puts a spin on mythology that I hadn't thought of, it intrigued me and had me immediately downloadi...more

    Pretty good goddess book. I am really into god and goddess books. I have read most of not all of the big Greek god series including Percy Jackson. This book is pretty good. More like a 3.5, but you can't rate with half starts on this site. I will read the next book in the series for sure. There are a few things that became somewhat boring. There were some parts that seemed to drag on. I would be pretty upset if I were Legacy because no one would tell her what was going on! I really liked the Adi...more

    I'm really disappointed with this book.

    I really hated starting my review this way.

    What I don't understand is how an author who says they are award winning, can publish a book with so many grammatical errors. The "she said this and then she said that" was too much. I was so confused by which female was talking that I gave up most of the time and just continued to read along hoping I picked the right character for the sentence.

    Okay now that was my biggest issue and took 1 stars away just for that...more
    I think that the idea of having gods perpetually cloning themselves is quite an original idea. It is not a simple cloning. Reproducing a god in one's own image comes in various shades and differences which sometimes, I found hard to follow but intriguing as a concept.
    What is also fascinating, is that although, these gods in making, have been given the essence of the original god, it is up to their own free will to attain their upmost grandeur and that is not always guaranteed.
    It is the first of...more

    Awesome young adult fiction, and a fun light read for those of us who usually go for heavier books. Good plot, good character development, and of course I"m a sucker for any story that cleverly weaves in mythology! Definitely planning to read this series through, and I know my pre teen daughter will enjoy it even more than I do!
