#Review: Revelation

by Ellery Kane

Revelation by Ellery Kane

The final book in the Legacy Trilogy, Revelation has arrived and it’s spectacular. Author Ellery Kane announced in her blog post “As its title suggests, Revelation promises to reveal all that is unknown” And I can honestly confirm she has held true. And not only that, but ATROS LIVES!

In the first book I never thought I would end up liking Lex, but by the end of this, I found myself not only cheering her on but the rest of the gang too. Revelation makes all the necessary twists, turns and feels and  to make each character important to the reader again… and yes, even Emma!

This series is more than just another three book dystopian. You experience not only the characters growth book-to-book, but you also get to experience the authors growth – learning, listening to her readers, and outdoing herself book-by-book. Congrats Ellery, this series turned out to be AMAZING!

“There wasn’t a word for it, that feeling –  any feeling really. Not just one. There was no joy without sorrow, no courage without fear, no hope without regret, no love without loss. For once, I didn’t try to have on without the other. I felt everything.”

Lex Knightley is keeping count. It’s been seventy-five days since Quin left for Los Angeles. Seventy-five days without one word from him. Sixty-one since she made a deal with a devil. A deal she already regrets. And exactly thirty-nine days since Onyx-the deadliest emotion-altering medication yet-hit the streets, leaving an escalating body count in its wake.

With Zenigenic promising a new drug-an anti-Onyx to make the world a little kinder and a lot more compliant-it seems Xander Steele will stop at nothing to satisfy his desire for power and control. Quin’s dramatic return brings more questions than answers. Lex suddenly finds herself right in the middle of it all… on a run for her life.

It’s a race against the clock to uncover Steele’s diabolical plan as the fate of San Francisco hangs in the balance. Can Lex finally fulfill her mother’s ambition to expose Zenigenic-or is it already too late?

Caution: Emotion-altering medications are in the air. Find a mask. Hold your breath. Get ready for Revelation, the page-turning conclusion to the Legacy trilogy.

The adventure isn’t over yet! Ellery also announced on her blog:

“To that end, I must confess, I was a little saddened to arrive at the finish of Lex and Quin’s journey. And what does an author do when she’s sad? She writes more, of course! In the works, is AWOL, a prequel novella, told from Quin’s point of view. I expect it to be released in March, and it will be free to all newsletter subscribers. AWOL features thirteen scenes, each of which offers a glimpse into the heart of our anti-hero and sets the stage for the epic adventure of the Legacy trilogy.”  Learn More.

ellery-kaneAbout the Author

Forensic psychologist by day, young-adult novelist by night, Ellery Kane has been writing–professionally and creatively–for as long as she can remember. Just like her main character, Lex, Ellery loves to ask why, which is the reason she became a psychologist in the first place. Real life really is stranger than fiction, and Ellery’s writing is often inspired by her day job. Evaluating violent criminals and treating trauma victims, she has gained a unique perspective on the past and its indelible influence on the individual. An avid short story writer as a teenager, Ellery recently began writing for enjoyment again, and the Legacy series was born. Ellery’s debut novel, Legacy, has received several awards, including winning the Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, young adult, e-book category.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
