A few random typos but otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable story. The Mystic Saga is up there with Battlestar Galactica as one of my favorite sci-fi mythologies. I'd love to see Joss Whedon make it into a TV series.

To start off this review, if you haven't read the first novella in the series, Indentured, I would recommend you read it prior to picking this one up: while this novella could stand on its own, it will make a lot more sense as book one plugs the background information.

Similar to the first in the series, this is a short and fun little novella. I will tell you I was a little disappointed there wasn't a continuation of the characters from book one, but what you have here is a real continuation of t

Another fantastic installment from this series.

I got a little lost in the beginning as the pov changed to completely new characters and settings, but I within a few pages I was back in the thick of it!!

Now on to part 3....

Legacy, Scott McElhaney [The Mystic Saga #2]

Ok, scorn coming towards the author. It starts in a fashion somewhat familiar and possibly linked to the previous offering, Indenture. I don't know what to call it... perhaps a hybrid prologue? The “1” “Braxton” “Blaze continent” chapter which has infinitely more content meaning than anyone could be expected to grasp. Then “Cortalilly patch...”, really? Not in any dictionary anywhere. After giving up and restarting to read I run into several other 'sur

Fantastic Sequel!

I recommend you read the previous book in the series (Indentured) prior to reading this book.

I was expecting this sequel to grant me some much needed answers to questions I have concerning the first book. To my chagrin, the plot thickens and what's more, I am left with more additional questions than answers.

The story takes up right where the last book leaves off and has a completely unexpected fresh approach. This story keeps you guessing and every nook and cranny of the plot is

I loved the first part of this book. It's a complete departure Indentured, no recurring characters. But the first half of this book was great!

The second half lost me a little though. It felt like the ending was rushed and too quickly thrown together. However, I still really enjoyed this book, and the world that McElhaney has built, I just wish that in the next book we could take our time getting to the end, and enjoy it. It felt like a hectic rush to finish.

I did enjoy this book.

This sequel is in the same world as the first book, but doesn't follow the same characters. It's enough of a departure that it took a bit to catch up. And the first large section of the book didn't have the same discovery and surprise that the first book did. But just when I worried the book took off. The ending on this one was much better. But note that this book doesn't truly end. It's a total cliffhanger, setting up the next book in the series. Fun read.

Better. A more coherent story and characters that you could engage with. I enjoyed the presentation style of this story, flipping as it did between characters and historical back story. The time travel angle does move the plot all over time but so far its not left me to cold as other time travel stories do.

Now reading Violation.

Fearless and amazing :) Scott introduces mind-blowing sci-fi concepts without a flinch or pause, taking you along in a crazy but highly enjoyable ride along light years, centuries and a stream of characters without becoming overwhelming or dull. Quite an interesting combination. The next books of the series are also all really imaginative and great.

Another great easy read that was very different from the first but also twisting. I quite like the pacing of these books although it does accelerate to light speed towards the end, but great nonetheless.

I like this a little better than the first. Wish I had read all three of the first books in a row. Characters don't necessarily go together between the books, but the story does carry on. Can't wait to read Violation!

While being a sequel to Indentured, it has a new feel, with new characters. Legacy does indeed get a little better than Indentured, and I am started to really feel where he is going with the Mystic Saga. Good job Scott.

Interesting 2nd book to the series. It kinda began a separate storyline from the 1st book. I'm curious if the 3rd book is going to tie the two together.

Gah, another great one. Really changed the mood and overall plot of the story, but kept me on my toes. Lots of fun to read, and Scott's good story telling really keeps you interested.
