Four years have passed since Lidan’s world was ripped apart, and time is running out to change her father’s mind about the succession before the bargain with her mother expires. Torn between what she wants and what she knows is right, she is faced with an impossible choice; will her brother live, or will he die?
Within the walls of the Hidden Keep, Ranoth holds his secrets close as he tries to harness his wild magic. But when life in the Keep descends into chaos, he is cast once more into the outside world, forced upon a southward path toward unknown lands and untold danger.
With Ran set on seeking justice and revenge, and Lidan fighting to find her feet and follow her heart, journeys will converge, and the ghosts of a past thought long dead will rise.
First and foremost, congratulations Alicia Wanstall-Burke for being a finalist of SPFBO (Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off) 2019 with her debut fantasy novel Blood of Heirs! I remember giving a 4.5/5 star rating for Blood of Heirs, but Legacy of Ghosts is way better and without a doubt, deserves a strong 4.8/5 star rating! Thanks to the author for the ARC of Legacy of Ghosts in exchange for an honest review. Receiving a copy of this novel did not influence my thoughts or opinion.
Legacy of Ghosts has everything that I expect from a fantasy novel: great world building, well-executed character arcs, well written action scenes, plot twists, and expansion of the magic system from the first installment (if there’s more explanation on the magic system in this book, it would have easily hit a 5/5 star rating). There’s more action going on in this book as compared to the first book. Despite this, Alicia did not neglect the characterization of the characters in this book and still manage to introduce new side characters in this story. There’s so much revelation in this book: Sellan and the Crone’s past, the creation of the ngaru/dradur, and Sellan’s evil plot. Again, the major cliffhanger in this book just leaves me wanting for more! Alicia, please do release the third book ASAP!
Legacy of Ghosts is a strong sequel and definitely a page turner! It was released on 30.11.2019 and if you are a fan of character driven and action packed series, do not hesitate to get a copy of Legacy of Ghosts from https://www.amazon.com/Legacy-Ghosts-… and dive into the world created by Alicia Wanstall-Burke!
