Prophecy is the second book of the Legacy by Ellery Kane. I loved Legacy, and was beyond excited when it arrived. It moved right to the front of my to-read list. Legacy was a really refreshing dystopian novel. I was debating giving Prophecy 4 or 5 stars. The only reason I was thinking to give it four was because there was very little action. It was quite different than Legacy, but different in a good way. So I decided to go with the big 5.

If you haven't read the first book in the Legacy series, you should go check out the review for it here. There might be some spoilers here that you might not want to read before reading the first book.

This book was as phenomenal as the first! in the first book, we are introduced to the emotion altering medications (EAMs), Zenigenic, the Crim-X program, as well as the characters that come into play in this book.

This book wastes no time before jumping right into the plot and action. It's been a year after the events in Legacy when Quin's father is sent back to prison because it looks like he killed his wife. It's left Quin trying to prove his innocence. Lex meanwhile has to deal with trying to decide if he's really guilty or not. A wild ride then begins for our characters, with emotional ups and downs. The book kind of ends sadly and I'm hoping that everything goes well in Revelation.

It is one year after Legacy. It seems everything is almost back to what can be considered normal. Then it all shatters. Quin’s father is out on parole but then he is arrested for the murder of his new wife. Quin believes that George is innocent even though Lex thinks he is not. But then there is a divide between Quin greater than just his father. It seems that the pills have a serious side effect to some people and Quin maybe one of those people. To keep Lex safe he distances himself from her.

Another great installment in the Legacy series. Quin and Lex's story continues. They both have their father's back in their lives and they both have their struggles...especially since Quin's dad is arrested and put on trial for the murder of his wife. Their relationship is put to the test all while fighting a lot of injustice and dealing with old rivals. I think others will continue to enjoy this series. I can't wait to read the third book!

Even better than the first one. I received this as a gift, and I powered through from cover to cover without taking a break. It was absolutely riveting. As fascinating and disturbing as the first one, with increasingly interesting romantic developments and a more in-depth exploration of humanity and relationships (romantic or otherwise). A fantastic book.

(This review may contain spoilers).

Ideally, I'd give this book 3.5 stars out of 5. I found it easier to read than the previous book... but I did think that the time jump of a year later (and the constant flashbacks with little warning) were somewhat jarring.

While I did remember a lot about the previous book, I found that I got confused with some of the characters for a while before things settled down. I did think it was good to see

As for the start, thank you to Ellery A. Kane for providing me with a copy of Prophecy.

At the start of the book we meet again with Ms. Alexandra (Lex) Knightley. After incidents that occured almost a year ago Lex’s life is getting back to normalcy. She is studying at university, trying to rekindle relationship with her dad, enjoying company of her boyfriend Quin and her friends. But troubles does not take a long to come.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been looking forward to the second instalment in this series since reading Legacy earlier this year. If you're a fan of YA dystopia, you NEED to pick up this series.

The book picks up after the explosive ending to Legacy. Lex and Quin are together and with her father. Quin's father is out on parole for a short time before being arrested again. This time, it's for a crime he claims he did not commit. And Quin believes him. Lex

This is the second book in the Legacy Series and I must say I truly enjoyed it. It picks up where book one left us. Quin and Lexi are still a couple although they go through many bumps in the road in this one. Quins dad has been arrested and for what else? Murder of his current wife. Quin is doing everything he can to get his father freed. Lexi however is

The Legacy Series is alive and well. I take back any hesitation I had over this series from my review of LEGACY. Ellery Kane’s captivating sequel to LEGACY is a novel that truly delivers - with suspense, mystery, deviance, secrets, betrayal, kidnapping and heartache perceived through a fearless heroine, an acceptance-seeking friend, a devoted son, a struggling father, an outsider, and a trusty dog. PROPHECY takes the Legacy Series to a new height - a series too mind-bending and stirring to be mi ...more

Just like the first, this book keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Quin and Lex continue their romance and suspenseful life. Quinn's father George is now out of jail and living a life with his wife Shelly. He is getting closer to Quin, has a job and even speaks out against EAMs. That is until he is arrested for the murder of his wife. This news causes a rift between Quin and Lex. Did he do it? What will happen between Quin and Lex? I can't wait to read the next one.

The Prophecy is yet another great book by one of my favorite authors! This book continues from where Legacy ends, this is great because nothing is left out. This was an amazing story. The characters developed nicely and they had many layers of complexity, just like the plot. The only thing that I didn't like is the CLIFFHANGER at the end. Now I have to wait for the next book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loved Legacy, and also loves different books that are amazing!!

I won this from Goodreads. This is the second book of the Legacy series. This book is a year after Legacy. Quin and Lex are still a couple but they have challenges. Her dad as been arrested for killing his now wife. In this book the Guardian Force band has been disbanded, drugs are banned and the citizens can now return to normal life. This book tests the love and forgiveness of Lex and Quin. This is a futuristic story with a cliffhanger.

Ellery Kane outshines herself again! Prophecy is a high-speed thrill ride through the continued journey of Lex and Quin as they continue to battle the Resistance along with new enemies, secrets and surprises. I couldn't put Prophecy down and I cannot wait for the last book in the series. A MUST readit is the perfect mix of action, suspense, romance and drama...5 stars!

This story keeps changing its form, yet it is good. The story continues but in a different way. In this book there's little action actually, but more romance. It focuses on a trial, so prepare yourself to make your own judgement. This part of the book is the starting for a new problem, and it defenitely needs to be read!

The second book from Ellery Kane is even better than the first! It reads like a mystery making you want to read it all the way through. I found the portrayal of Lexi and Quin's relationship very realistic and riveting. I can't wait to see happens next!!!

Courtroom drama and testimonies, new characters, and trust issues in the sequel to Legacy. There was less action in this one but more of the emotional battles. And Augustus... He hasn't changed. Emma and String were good additions to the story.
