* I was sent this for free from the author in exchange for an honest review *

This book was recommended to me by a friend (Elena from Elena Reads Books) as she said it was a bit more of a sexy, fantasy fun story. The author was kind enough to send me the whole series so I actually have the next two on my shelves waiting to be read too and I am very much looking forward to them after this because although it's a little more about relationships than I usually go for, it was fun.

The story follows a

I'm Looking far and wide for the right words that explode the wide array of dramatic emotions that express my love for this book. If you were to look into the universe and find every color known to man it still wouldn't be enough to color the world in with HR Moore has started with this novel. I had to delay this book from reviewing for a bit and for that I am sorry. I have found myself encompassed in a world of amazingness. I read the Harry Potter Books, the first four and the last one give me ...more

4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this. Thank you to the author and YA Bound Book Tours for sending me an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Firstly, thank you to the author, H. R. Moore, and YA Bound Book Tours for providing me with a review copy of this book. Then, I want to say that I really, really liked this book and will definitely (at some point) continue on with the series. I waited too long to write this review to gush, so this will perhaps be a bit stale, but n

In Legacy there are different factions where people have different powers of the mind, body and spirit. A young girl Anita wins everybody challenge she enters but there are a few things about Anita that most don’t know and that is that Anita is talented in more areas than one. Anita also has the ability to read people but she tries to keep that one under her hat so to speak.

But when the Descendants show up in her home town letting her ability to read people be known could have a few people want

I loved this book! The world H.R. Moore has created is fabulous, the characters are likable and the plot kept me turning the pages all night long! I'm anxiously awaiting the next installment of the series!

Bristling with action and aching with intensity, Legacy of the Mind is in line to thrill fans across the fantasy spectrum from Canavan and Miller to Meyer and Rowling

3.5 stars

Let me start by explaining why this one didn’t quite hit 4 stars for me. From the beginning, I found the story a little difficult to grasp (which I expected due to the fantasy nature). Knowing it would require a more detailed explanation to understand the setting and elements, I kept with it and tried to take it all in (making character notes to remind myself who was who). Halfway through I still wasn’t fully engrossed in the story but then at 70% the drama really picked up and I found

**Thank you to the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

This book wasn't quite what I was expecting going in, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit! The fantasy world that the author has created focuses on the energy that feeds every aspect of their world and which every person can control to an extent, either with Body, Mind, or Spirit skills. Anita is a very talented Body, known in her city for her skills. What people don't know, however, is that sh

by H.R. Moore
I did not expect the depth and diversity within this book it took me by total surprise. The title does not give the reader a hint at the rich world that H R Moore has created. The characters are dynamic and so realistic you immediately connect with them. The mystery and problems are so ominous and difficult for the characters the reader will long to read the entire series in hopes that they get resolution. Anita is a young Body adherent wh

I was really intrigued by the synopsis of this book and I wasn’t disappointed when I started to read
I instantly warmed to misfit Anita and her friends and instantly hated Austin!
I loved how she fought against the norm and had a who cares kind of attitude but deep down she had the same insecurities about what people thought and about drawing attention to herself. It made her immediately easier to relate to!

The only thing I thought that would put me off was the romance factor but actually it was

I’m absolutely exhausted but I just had to stay up last night to finish this brilliant book,and I’m so glad I did 😀

I absolutely loved the world that the author created in this novel, and if you’re a fan of fantasy novels then (based on this first book) I’d say this trilogy is right up your street.

The characters all have strengths in either Mind, Body or Spirit and their whole worlds existence is dependent on the energy levels being maintained.

It was brilliantly written and I don’t want to giv

This book really ticked all the boxes for me. I found it easy to read and impossible to put down! The world it brought me into was one I wanted to stay in and be a character throughout. I found it entrancing with enough detail and backstory to make you feel a real connection. I've just finished volume 1 and am chomping a the bit for some time to read the next one.

I read this book cover to cover in no time at all. I found it hard to put down and was quite desperate to find out what would happen next! An excellent read with great characters, and a plot full of mystery and intrigue. I ordered the next book pretty much straight away.

Totally captivating!

Amazing story, a mixture of mystery, adventure and romance. Can’t wait to read the next one! Someone that can take 6 month to finish a book and I finished this in under 2 weeks!

Legacy has filled a hole in my life while I impatiently await the publication of the final book in the All Souls Trilogy and from the end of Harry Potter and the Twilight series.

Legacy is a fantastic read, I couldn't put the book down as I simply had to know what was going to happen next. This book is full of intrigue and excitement. The characters are like-able, interesting and their interaction with each other is very real which is a refreshing change.

I was excited to read this book. After reading the synopsis, I was convinced I would love this book.

Unfortunately, that was not the case. It was DNF for me about half way through, and it took me several attempts to get that far. I thought the concept was great, but I didn't connect with the characters or the story at all. It seemed disjointed, choppy and missing in backstory. Several times I had to re-read a few pages, thinking I had missed something, but nope, I was just lost.
