Description 

Over a year has passed since Lex Knightley journeyed alone into desolate San Francisco. The Guardian Force is disbanded, emotion-altering drugs banned, and citizens allowed to return to the seemingly resurrected city. 

For Lex, life is almost normal, but normal is precarious. Normal has a way of falling apart. 

One rainy night changes everything. Out on parole, Quin McAllister’s father is arrested for the brutal murder of his new wife. As the Resistance resurges, claiming a conspiracy, Lex doesn’t know what—or who—to believe. When old enemies resurface in new disguises and trusted friends start keeping secrets, normal splits right down the middle, leaving Lex and Quin on opposite sides. 

Prophecy—the second novel of Ellery Kane’s Legacy trilogy—continues the story of Lex and Quin, testing the strength of friendship, forgiveness, and love. 




My Thoughts/Review

This book wastes no time before jumping right into the plot and action.  It's been a year after the events in Legacy when Quin's father is sent back to prison because it looks like he killed his wife. It's left Quin trying to prove his innocence. Lex meanwhile has to deal with trying to decide if he's really guilty or not. A wild ride then begins for our characters, with emotional ups and downs. The book kind of ends sadly and I'm hoping that everything goes well in Revelation.

The characters grow as the story goes on and I love that, because when you go through trying and hards times, it will change you, hopefully for the better. Quin is such a perfect bad boy. I just love him. Though I love most bad boys, what does that say about me? I've no idea.

The chapters in this book are short but stuff like that just doesn't bother me, if anything it helps me get through it faster, telling myself 'just one more chapter' with this book is easy and I've found I read more than I planned at a single setting.

Anyone who hasn't read these books needs to pick them up, they are quick reads that will totally entertain and get you engrossed so deeply, you'll forget about the real world.



Favorite Quotes 

1) "Well, you're not alone. You're an honorary member of the Knightly family.
With a fragile smile, Max replied, 'I'm not sure how your dad feels about that.'
'He'll just have to get used to it.'"

2) "Hi, Sexy Lexi -- Thanks for opening the window--- and forgiving me. I love you."

3) "'My point is she's not smart. She's not nice. And most importantly, she's not you. If Quin can't see that, then he doesn't deserve you.' He put his arm around my shoulder. 'Although, they both have tattoos, which apparently makes them soul mates.'"

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction.

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
