Review by Cheryl Shainmark
Author of several non-fiction books in the past, Jude Currivan has knocked it out of the park now with her first fictional effort. Legacy is an action packed adventure story – part myth, part romance, and entirely exciting! With dragons, time machines, genetic manipulation and a plot to control mankind by alien forces, there is something for everybody. This is the best sci-fi fantasy book to cross our desk in a while.
But is it entirely fiction? As the book neatly swerves from modern London in 2012 to ancient Egypt, from the newly awakened god Thoth to a band of bad guys, and from the latest scientific advances to the wisdom of a telepathic elderly woman, the reader is left to wonder. Currivan has deftly woven a tale that incorporates myth, prophecy, and sacred knowledge into a modern fable that has the ring of truth. As the heroine, Elanor Duke, struggles to free humanity from the mind control of extra-planetary forces, she wrestles with larger questions that evoke everything from the role of the gods and their ability to interact with humans, to the the latest findings from quantum physics. There are questions posed and dillemas presented that have a realism and a sense of urgency and immediacy for mankind today.
Legacy is written as a three part e-book and is the first installment of what promises to be an exciting series, entitled, “Heritage of the Dragon”. All three parts of Legacy are released on Kindle and now available on Amazon. Book 2 of the Heritage of the Dragon series, Awakening, is due out at the end of the year and promises to be a wild ride as the story of Elanor and the Regime and the Magi continues.
