Legacy Strain 

Isolation #3

 The Legacy Strain
~Released: June 6th 2017

~Publisher: Limitless Publishing

~Genres: Post-Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Young Adult

Brooklyn Harper’s friends have betrayed her, her heart is broken, and all of humanity is at risk.

After Kirin’s unannounced arrival in Louisiana, Brooklyn finds herself scrambling for a way out of an impossible situation. Kirin is creating the deadly Genesis Cull, and Brooklyn doesn’t know who to turn to for help.

With no other options, she’s forced to trust her nemesis, Juneau Malloy. His support allows the group of Special Omen Operatives to gear up, form a plan of action, and train for the day when they come face-to-face with their worst fear—going to war with their friends.

There is a divide in the once inseparable group of Omens, and their only hope is to put the pieces back together.

Julian Yu Matsumoto agonizes over the difference between right and wrong, love and sacrifice, genocide and revolution. While he struggles with his feelings for Kirin, his moral compass is spinning round and round, his heart is being pulled in different directions, and Julian is desperate to answer questions he never thought he would have to ask.

Is Kirin’s Genesis Cull a revolution or genocide?

Could there be another way to save themselves and humanity as they know it?

Will Julian pay the ultimate price for loving a monster?

Their only hope for redemption is—the Legacy Strain.

 My Review

I didn't think this series could get any better. It did.

The first book in this series, Omen Operation, grabbed my attention from the first chapter. I didn't want to put it down, and fell in love with the whole plot right away. The second book, ECHO Campaign, was even better, if that's possible. When it ended though, my guts were a mess. I wanted to know what would happen next, but I really didn't know what would happen, or if my nails could handle another round of chewing.

The revelations that happened in the last parts of the book blew me away. I hadn't expected the twists and explanation of Brooke's whole story, basically. It was such an amazing way to tie it all together, and end the adventure. I was super nervous that the ending would be an anti-cliche attempt to be dramatic, which probably would have given me a major book hangover. Luckily, it was an ending I enjoyed a ton, and gave the story a finality that makes me want to read it several more times.

The writing for this series is wonderful, and stayed consistent all the way through. I loved the flow, and the mix of betrayal, hope, sacrifices, and the all important struggle between right and wrong. This is a wonderful series, and I would recommend it to anyone. If it sounds at all like something you'd enjoy, give it a try - I'd be shocked if you didn't enjoy it.

*I was given a complimentary eBook copy of this book, from the author via Xpresso Book Tours, to read in exchange for an honest review.
