Secrets have consequences—and so do truths.

I’ve been outed as a Legacy and there’s nothing I can do but deal with the aftermath. I thought I could handle it—I was wrong. The city is in chaos, and I have more enemies than allies. Some that I once called allies have quickly become my betrayers.

Just when I didn’t think things could get any worse, Conner resurfaces and he’s ready

I had a few issues with this book that made me waffle between 3.5 or 4 stars. I'm still not sure, so I went with 3.5 because damn I read waaay to much for some BS to be happening in the THIRD BOOK.

• What is up with this book's pacing? It's like everything happened at once. BAM. Suddenly you have action scenes that happen out of nowhere. It's like walking outside your front door when a refrigerator hits you. Or that time when Dean was walking on the street when a piano fell on him. An/>

I've actually listened to this book 3 entire times. It's taken me a while to get to this review and I didn't want to move in to another one or I'll forget. There is a scene where the lead character, Levy, makes a comment about how she felt towards those who she felt betrayed. I thought that moment, actually that one sentence was the best of the whole book. I felt it was one of those moments the author truly wrote what this character would feel. I was shocked this author was so bold. Its a spark ...more

Giving up

I'm giving up on this series. The characters just react to whatever is thrown at them and don't grow. The plot still jumps around. So done with the villains.

see review for book 2. A solid 4 book ruined by trashy gimmicky endings. Not sure if this publisher forces it or it's an author thing.

Books 1 and 2 were good. In book 3, the plot becomes a bit redundant. The lead seems to ping pong around the city getting into fights but always needing to be rescued. She also lets her hormones do her thinking for her, sleeping with the male lead despite the fact he has basically shrugged at murder of her fellow Legacies and decided it was ok to lock her in an interrogation room because she was mad and walked away from him. The messages here are kind of disturbing --it is not ok to tra

I just finished this series - and I read a lot of first novels in series like this. So it says a lot for the engaging content of the story that I went all the way through. I really enjoyed the story - it was fairly fast paced - and there were no sections that seemed to drag. The main characters are all very fierce and powerful and I definitely enjoy that sort of thing. I'll just list the things that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating:

At no point did I read anywhere that this was a trilogy, but I've read a lot of them recently and just assumed, the ending of this book definitely dispelled that idea, talk about a cliffhanger! And speaking of the ending, the book came to an excellent end point, but didn't, it kept going and the last bit felt like it didn't belong in this book and should have been in the next one, since this would have avoided the cliffhanger I would have preferred this.

Levi and Gareth finally end up

(3.5 Stars )

"Renegade Magic" was a slightly better read than the previous book in this series. This time the plot moved forward as well as Levy's relationship with Gareth. However, Gareth's obligations to his job often conflicts with Levy's personal challenges as a Legacy. No matter how hard she works, the disdain and prejudices against her and her kind just won't go away.

Of course Conner is back in the mix with her personal brand of crazy but his antics as well as those

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review: HOLLY SMOKES! This book was beyond amazing it took me a night to finish because it was just that great. This book does not disappoint, it was definitely action packed and exciting. I felt like I got more of a fast paced story line of Levy in this book and she is slowly letting her guard down with Gareth which is refreshing since she always has to be in this constant state of never being valuable. I also have to say I feel lik ...more

I was given a free copy of this book for an honest review:

Levy is a brat! But I can seriously understand why. We saw more character growth in her behavior and choices, but she is a stubborn one.

Gareth really grates my nerves sometimes with his back and forth authoritative behavior. The whip lash was making me really start to not like the guy. But he chilled out a bit as the book went on.

The story line was packed full of different things happening. It was one thing after the other a

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed this 3rd book in the series. Levy's story continues from where it left off in Obsidian Magic and has the excitement and danger we have come to expect in this series. The book was fast-paced and full of surprises as more enemies come into the story. We also see development in Levy and Gareth's relationship. Levy is struggling to figure out her place in the world as more people find out that she is a Legacy

Disclaimer - I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed the book which, as you can see, is the third in the series. I have read them all as well as another of the author's series.

To be perfectly honest, I think the lead character (Levy) is a whiney brat who doesn't know when to shut up and listen. She definitely has issues with authority, but I think that is one of the things you grow to love about her.

She is strong willed and determined and that, a

Excellent read....

Levy is a Legacy and Connor is a Vertu. Both world unstoppable magic. Power is something Connor thrives for and his plan is to make Levy his consort. Gareth is the head is the supernatural guild, and he and Levy are trying to avoid being an item. Savannah is Levy's roommate and someone who can boost magic. In the wrong hands, she could be deadly.

Speed forward. Connor released monsters to rain havoc on humans and supers because he wants Levy for himself. Make sense to you?? No

I really have enjoyed the story in this book and the two before it. It was different. There were new supernaturals as well as the common ones that people write about. It was a fast,easy read but kept my interest. I gave it 3 stars due to editing issues that if fixed would have made the books look and feel a lot more professional.i realize that by reading books online in kindle unlimited instead of buying a paper copy that it may be due to the seems to happen a lot in books i

First off, for anyone who hasn't read the first two books, this is not the place to start. You need to start this series from the beginning. That being said, I love Levy. She's really had been dealt a rough hand in life. She's constantly trying to do the right thing and help and yet people despise what she is. We see her struggle in this book with trying to remain a good person and overcome the anger and rage that is starting to take root within her. But she still keeps her sass and snarkiness w ...more

The third installment in the Legacy series by McKenzie Hunter, Renegade Magic and the battle between Levy and well basically the world it seems. There were a bunch of twists still in this third book in the series that literally made me stop reading and let my mind finish exploding. Those parts were the best though despite the graphic way it was described. I still laugh at the times when Levy actually holds her tongue and behaves, it's like I can see her in my mind's eye restraining. That is the ...more

O am really loving this series. With a lot of author's I plow through the first two books but then run out of enthusiasm at the third, because many author's get so far and then they run out of situations for their characters, instead these books go from strength to strength, and the characters continue to evolve. I don't want to give anything away, however, I am really enjoying the way Savannah is growing as a character, I was worried that she may become insipped or boring but this isn'

Abort mission!

I tried and failed at 85% (sooo close). I read books one and two, even though I’m partially of the belief that these books are written by a team of artificial intelligence and humans. It’s too mechanical and the language it trying too hard. The word innocuous still reigns supreme. Just stop.

Spoiler alert: they kill off the most well-developed character (villain) in this book so that really sucks. They also add in new storylines that don’t make sense - clearly afterthoughts. It’s

The story continues to keep my interest and I like the possibility of meeting new Legacy. There seems to be a lot of repetition and info dumping (of info we already know) that is irksome. I think I have an unhealthy fascination with Conner and his appearance-I mean if he's so narcissistic and all powerful, where has he been all this time? Hopefully we'll get some answers in the next book... Levy's continued lack of confrontation where Gareth is concerned is mind numbingly bothersome but throw in ...more

Another great read in this series

I love Levy and her world and each books just delves more into her life and the challenges she faces. She’s very closed off emotionally so her and Gareth being together is not a commitment to her but I wonder how she really feels about it. All of the super natural and human problems are ramping up for an eventual fantastic show down. I would love just a chapter or scenes from Gareth too, it helps to know his side as well.

Read this series! Thank you McKenzie!

McKenzie Hunter does it again! This book (series really) takes you on such an emotional roller coaster, a great one. I love the characters and world you create. I love the sarcasm, the laughs, the relationships literally everything. You have the best cliff hangers. I cannot wait for the next one! I very strongly recommend this book, and all of her other ones!! Thank you for another great escape from reality!

Like the others before i wasn't able to put this book down. The storyline gets a bit more complicated and you learn more abt the characters. The relationship w Gareth and Levy is more nuanced and aside from crazy Conner we have new players in the mix. Def worth p8cking up and the read.

I can’t wait to see what happens in book 4. The author has created an exciting world and characters I’d love to see and read about beyond just 4 books. I know the saying goes, “Always leave them wanting more,” and I think the world and characters are so well-built that several more books would still leave us wanting more. Fantastic series and a new favorite author.

Renegade Magic is the third book in the Legacy Series by McKenzie Hunter. Conor is like a cockroach, every time you think he's dead, he's not. Levy and Gareth try to seek out the remaining Legacy, only to have a mysterious killer get to them first.
Overall, this was a great addition to this series.

I just didn’t care for this book. The plot has been repetitive since the beginning, and the constant whining about being a Legacy and how hard it’s been, and Connor, and blah, blah..I couldn’t stand it. I definitely didn’t like the cliffhanger ending which seemed to appear out of left field. Because I’ve invested three reads in this series, i’ve gotta see this through to the end.
