I bought this book after being recommended by my friends who seem to have gone gaga over this new story. And I love it too!!
The Darkest Legacy: Betrayal is the first installment in the series being writtenby J.L Catz, and I think the author has done a wonderful job!
For me, the best parts of this book are the unexpected twists that come along the way. The book is very exciting and I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. I had to finish it in one go. And that is something very rare for

Recommends it for: Teens, tweens

Cara is your normal teenage girl, popular, on the dance team at school and an average student. Or at least that is what she has always thought. After a car accident left her in the hospital, she is finally back at school and ready for life to get back to the regular, normal routine but it seems that nothing is going to be normal. Her mom, Maria, seems to be acting weird, paranoid in some ways and then there are these bizarre headaches that knock her flat. One mornin

I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway.

Although this book may be marketed towards tweens and teenagers, I believe that anyone could read this book and thoroughly enjoy the exciting and unpredicted plot twists and non-stop action this book contains. The writer, Jennifer Lynn Catz, did a remarkable job in creating characters and a storyline that are both unique and entertaining. The main character is a 16 year-old girl named Cara, who lives with her mother and younger sister and two cats. Ca

After the craze for the Cullen family subsided, I was on the lookout for the next 'thing', something that would make us go crazy! And I found that 'thing' in The Darkest Legacy: Betrayal. Even though it is the first book of J.L Catz, the writing is very impressive. The plot is fast, engaging and the kind the keeps you on the edge of your seat as to what will happen next. The language is simple and easy to understand. I have already read it twice and have recommended it to my friends, who are now ...more

i thought this was a really great book. It was a smoothly written book, quick paced. I like the way Jennifer Catz writes. The descriptions and the details had me really engaged. Other people wrote about the plot in their reviews so I won't write that here. But I really enjoyed this book and it has a fantastic cliff hanger ending…which, of course, had me jumping for the next book. I just found the characters compelling and the book, in general, quite interesting. Read it…you'll be glad you did!

To be honest, I wasn't really expecting much when I bought this book. Amongst an overwhelming number of fantasy books for teens, there are very few that leave their mark, and this book definitely does that!
Starting from the accident to the confusion in Cara's life to all the strange happenings..the book jumps from one scene to another very smoothly and beautifully. The writing has been paced aptly to keep the curiosity going strong.
I am about to the start reading the second book in the series a
