So this time I decided to go with The darkest legacy, this is an ‘extra’ book to The darkest mind trilogy and it’s written from a different perspective. I’m curious what will happen to this story, especially since this is written a couple of years later.

See the synopsis for the darkest minds here and for the darkest legacy here!

Title: The darkest legacy.

Author: Alexandra Bracken.

Format: Paperback from the library.

Genre: YA, fantasy, dystopian.

Before reading:

I really liked Bracken’s The darkest minds trilogy. But I’ve since read her Passenger duology and did not really enjoy it. so I’m not sure what I will think about this book. Did I just not connect with Passenger or did my opinion change about her writing? Guess we will see.

First impressions:

Okay so so far this book is quite different from the first three books! Not really sure what I think about it, but I guess I’m enjoying it?! I really need to read more to form a proper opinion haha.

You can definitely notice that both the characters and the author have grown, which is nice to see! So far I would say I would give this book 4 stars.

After reading:

I loved reading from Zu’s perspective! I loved being back in this world! To see what is now going on a couple of years after ‘the ending’. I did feel like this book was a bit too long, at some pint I was like ‘okay I get it let’s move on..’

I’m still curious what is happening, so this book does not answer all the questions I still had. But to be honest I would not mind another book in this world haha. I just really love the characters!

I ended up rating this book 3.5 stars!
