    One thought on “Legacy”

    1. image error So I woke up this morning, and I used a red rubberband to tie up my brown hair with gold highlights Then I made my bed by folding my quilt, and squaring the corners After that, I squeezed my fresh, minty smelling green toothpaste onto my blue and white toothbrush and brushed my teeth Then I went into the kitchen where I used my favourite 1 litre saucepan to make tea I brewed my tea for about two minutes before straining it and adding milk Then I added sugar and drank my tea slowly, f [...]

    2. I ll admit it, when I was fourteen my writing sucked and when I read it over I cringe in embarrassment And this book produced the same reaction After reading this book I understand how awesome editors are and damn, did this book need it.I love me some description, beautiful, lyrical stuff that ll make you turn green in fits of raging jealousy but shit, man, when they fail, oh boy do they fail Frick, if I wanted to read paragraphs and paragraphs of technical descriptions about the color of someon [...]

    3. When I found out a young author in my state near the city in which I live had succeeded in writing and publishing a book, I was ecstatic I wanted to like it, I really wanted to like it I read it the whole way through, hoping I d find a redeeming star hidden in the pages And all I found was a shining example of why so few teenagers get their works published A dragging plotline was there a plot , endless descriptions of what people are wearing I about died after the fifth time I could really care [...]

    4. WOW This book was amazing I loved everything about it, the characters were well developed, the storyline was intriguing, the romance was great, descriptions of surroundings were wonderful It was the perfect book for me I love fairy tales and fantasy books and this just became my favorite I am trying to think were to begin it was all so good,and I don t want to give anything away Princess Alera of Hytanica Kingdom is coming of age to marry Her father is ready to relinquish his title to whom ever [...]

    5. First let me just say wow I am in love with this book and with Cayla s beautiful writing Cayla wrote this book when she was only 14 years old I know, can you believe it I am so impressed with the storyline, it kept me at the edge of my seat I loved the descriptive details which helped me imagine the life of Princess Alera I enjoyed most of the characters, with the exception of one, Steldor, which was her father s choice for suitor, he was an arrogant son of a gun I don t want to say a lot about [...]

    6. Legacy follows Princess Alera as she goes about her daily life Her father is determined for her to marry by the age of eighteen so he can step down and Alera can rule along side her husband The problem is the only male in the kingdom who seems suitable for Alera, by her father s standards, is the unbearable and egotistical Steldor Meanwhile, there is still a great deal of tension between Alera s kingdom, Hytancia, and the nearby kingdom of Cokryi The last act Cokryi took against Hytancia was to [...]

    7. I really should have seen it coming After reading for about 150 pages with the nagging thought of Jeez, it s like a teenager wrote this Surprise A teenager did write it Cayla Kluver evidently wrote Legacy when she was 14 15 and it shows Don t get me wrong, she would have been a wildly talented and creative 14 year old, but that doesn t mean we need to publish it The world she creates is inconsistent and patchy, but its scale is large and there are certain plotpoints that aren t bad at all, even [...]

    8. Reviewed by Allison Fraclose for TeensReadTooSeventeen years ago, a bloody war waged by the Kingdom of Cokyri on the Hytanicans ended abruptly when the Cokyri stole away forty nine newborn malesd only returned the bodies of forty eight Hytanica has managed to rebuild from the war, but the anger felt towards the warriors of the mountains not to mention anxiety that the war could resume at any time has never completely ceased Alera, crowned princess of Hytanica, now celebrates her seventeenth birt [...]

    9. Another reviewer on said something about this book that made a lot of sense to me that if the author hadn t been 16 that she wouldn t have gotten nearly as much attention as she already has I have to agree with that the book is ok but other than that I sort of don t see what all the fuss is about The story follows Princess Alera as she goes about her daily life She is told that she must choose a husband before she turns 18, but unfortunately the only suitor her father will really allow is the e [...]

    10. 5 STARS This is definetly my new TOP FAVORITE I ADORED this story and felt like I knew and loved SOMETHING about every single character The characters descriptions and depth was everything I love in a story There was never a moment where I felt like skimming I don t have a single complaint about this book It has the love triangle aspect that I love, but even if you hate love triangles, this is done in a way that makes total sense without being annoying, because one man she MUST love have, but do [...]

    11. I have a weakness for princess stories and with a gorgeous cover like that on Cayla Kluver s Legacy I knew I had to read the book The writing was nicely paced and with elements of action, duty, betrayal, love and family, the story kept me engaged until the end.One of the things I noted though was that there is a lot of description about the food, setting, clothes, etc As someone who is bad at visualization, this made it easier for me to imagine stuff, but at times even I found all the descriptiv [...]

    12. One of our TAB members recommended this to me, and I really loved that it s printed in blue ink with nifty illuminated letters to start each chapter I was a little hesitant when I learned it was written by a 14 year old, mostly because the other books I ve read or tried to read by teens Eragon and Truancy weren t really my cup of tea I made it to page 16 and gave up It SOUNDS like a 14 year old wrote it Which is fine, and if that doesn t bother you perhaps you ll like the story, but it drove me [...]

    13. I ve been trying to read this off and on and today I realized I just won t be able to finish it A cliche storyline lost princes, princesses wanting their own will, arranged marriages, etc I can deal with if it s well done And I m sorry to say but Legacy s writing is not While I am quite impressed that Ms Kluver had the tenacity to complete an entire 200 page book, the fact that she was so young when she wrote it is glaringly obvious In the first 50 or so pages, every little thing is mentioned fr [...]

    14. From reading other GR reviews I found out this was written by a 16 year old or 14 or 18 year old I m too lazy to find out the author s age tbh All I can say is that I m not surprised it does read like a some teenager s idea princess adventure I think it s great she managed to write a book, at 16 the only thing I was writing were love notes to Pancho he was cute ok and it s easy to read and organized than other adult writers I ve read recently I m looking at you Possession BUT the only way I cou [...]

    15. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty Legacy of a nation filled with duty and honor plays an important role in this fantastic tale.Opening Sentence The first boy disappeared on the day of his birth, on a night when the pale yellow moon that ruled the sky turned red and bathed the heavens in the ghastly color of blood, the same night the Empire of Cokyri abruptly ceased its merciless attack.The Review Legacy was on my short list of books that I wanted to read when I visited the library [...]

    16. Legacy by Cayla Kluver is the first in the Legacy trilogy Seventeen year old Princess Alera of Hytanica is supposed to marry a man who will become king and her father s choice is not one she wants What does catch her eye, though, is an intruder with steel blue eyes and her kingdom s greatest enemy.The cover was pretty and it drew me in, which should have been a sign Whenever there s a pretty cover, chances are, it s a horrible book But, Cayla was only fifteen when she wrote this, so I figured, w [...]

    17. Legacy is definitely a classic story of two fundamentally differing societies My take while reading this novel was that while on the surface Hytanica seemed to be the civilized of the two, their sometimes barbaric views of how females should behave made them not as progressive as the Cokyri.The story is told from the perspective of Alera a Hytanica princess Sadly, I didn t like Alera maybe cause I was never sure how to say her name nor remembered how to spell is Me simple I just never got a han [...]

    18. Alera is the princess and heir to the throne of Hytanica, and now at age of seventeen, she has one year to find a suitable husband who meets her father s standards to rule the kingdom at her side Unfortunately, there is only one such man that meets his standards, and Alera can t stand the mere sight of him With her days of freedom numbered, Alera finds herself concentrating on political affairs once the Cokyrians begin infiltrating the palace But there s a rumour floating around there is a mole, [...]

    19. Princess Alera is in line for the throne and her father desperately wants her to marry the Captain s son When a rightful son of Hytanica is found alive and well and is brought to the palace as a prisoner she finds herself mysteriously drawn to him, like no other boy has.Alera is one of those characters that stays inside of her box but when she ventures out of it, that s where she figures out who she is and finally takes hold of her fate.This book felt a lot like the story line of Romeo and Julie [...]

    20. Ok, so in theory, this was an ok book, but I had A LOT of problems wih it For instance, the author did not add much dialogue between Narian and Alera, just hinted at it Also, honestly, Alera would make a frightful Queen She puts herself first and foremost She cares only about her happiness, not about her poor father who had to take up the duty and wants to relinquish it Not to mention the conflicting images of Steldor, from caring and sweet, to egotistical and conceited Seriously, people, whipla [...]

    21. DNF 48%Andaba dando vueltas en mi pendientes, con muy buenas referencias, una portada hermosa y un precio de regalo EPIC FAIL Una lectura muy aburrida, vueltas y vueltas sobre nada, puras descripciones sobre vestidos y chicos apuestos, no pasaba NADA La protagonista una m s del mont n, la t pica belleza, rica, privilegiada, con cero autoestima CASUALMENTE Un apio, sin personalidad ni profundidad Se le r en en la cara, la maltratan y la mina NO HACE NADA, ni un pelo se le mueve Se la pasa de fies [...]

    22. This was really terrible The writing was incredibly tedious and overly descriptive, and the characters were all painfully ridiculous and unlikable I can t believe it ended how it did frustrating after persevering to get such a non ending But I honestly don t care what happens to any of these people next If I d known how it was going to end, I might not have bothered finishing it at all I wish I could get the hours back.

    23. I wholeheartedly admit that I am addicted to books with pretty covers Hence why I bought this series in the first place Now that we have that confession out of the way, I had never heard of this series prior to purchasing it, and, unsurprisingly, it isn t particularly popular So all in all, I bought this trilogy on a complete whim with absolutely no expectations, read the first two books in about three days, and don t have a single regret This is a very unusual chain of events, particularly my l [...]

    24. sigh what an awesome book Seriously, it was absolutely great See, I love historical fiction And, this one is even special since it is set in a fictional fantasy historical world that is just incredibly imaginative I love what Cayla Kluver developed her and I envie her talent in creating such a world Also, I have to mention that she was only 15 when she created this work of fantastic fiction, but one would never guess this when reading her book In Legacy we have two rival communities that are in [...]

    25. Zur Aufmachung Zum Cover Sosehr ich es auch liebe Ich hasse es ich wei , das macht keinen Sinn, ist aber so Warum packen die da immer M dchen auf die Cover drauf, die so gar nicht aussehen wie der Hauptcharakter Alera hat KEINE blauen Augen und sie hat Locken Den Titel finde ich allerdings sehr sch n, auch wenn Legacy nat rlich noch viel besser klingt.Zum BuchAlera.Ihr wisst ja gar nicht wie schwer das manchmal ist, ein Buch zu bewerten Problem bei dem Buch ist, dass ich jetzt einiges bem ngeln [...]

    26. I m trying to think of how to talk about this book without being mean I ll try for blunt and hope it doesn t come across to badly Here s the story Alera is stuck with the likelihood of marrying a guy she actively dislikes She s muffled by rules that keep woman from holding power But out there is something watching The country over holds a possibility of love but a huge possibility of her entire country getting wiped off the map.The tone of this book was impossible to get through It was stilted a [...]

    27. I tried to finish this one, I really did I just found that I couldn t The original plot was interesting enough, but that quickly declined after a few chapters and it descended into mediocrity.I think the author was aiming for high or epic fantasy with writing this book, but it just didn t hit the mark As Alera s story continues with her getting harrassed by her suitors right and left, I found it harder and harder to emotionally click with her What happened to the awesome blood soaked mystery tha [...]

    28. The cover is gorgeous and the story was most interesting The protagonist as well as the other characters in this story are very original and interesting It is a long book, and at times you may feel it drag on a little but as you move along you get pulled in.In her seventeenth year, Princess Alera of Hytanica faces one duty to marry the man who will be king But her father s choice of suitor fills her with despair When the palace guard captures and intruder a boy her age with steel blue eyes, hail [...]

    29. 4.5 stars rounded up because the author was in her early teens when writing that definitely deserves a brownie point or two.i loved this world and did not want to leave it the writing was pompous at times, the characterization only moderate, but the setting, pacing, and plot twists were fantasticn t wait for the sequels to be available in englishpg13 green mild kissing, mild violencemay 2012 re read
