Book Review

Title: Legacy (Project Renova Series Book 4)

Author: Terry Tyler

Category: Post-Apocalyptic

My Rating: 5 Star


My Review:

Legacy is book four of the Project Renova Series and is a fabulous way to wrap up this fast paced post-apocalyptic series. Book one (Tipping Point) blew me away, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book and then the next. I got quite emotional when I reached The End!

In Legacy, the author takes us on a journey through time as we revisit old characters as well as wind the clock forward one hundred years to see how their ancestors fared. It’s excellently written, clever, and intricately plotted. There were quite a few ‘OMG’ moments for me as I became invested in the new characters and their discoveries. I loved Bree and Silas and would love to read more about Wolf (I imagine him to be a crazy Ivor the Boneless type character from Vikings!)

Lottie was my favourite character from the previous books, so it was lovely to see her represented in Legacy both in her own chapter and that of her ancestors (no spoilers!). Dex was the bad guy we loved to hate, and so I especially loved reading about his son’s part in the new world.

Thoroughly enjoyable read and a series I would highly recommend to any post-apocalyptic fan.

Book Blurb:

‘Out of all the death and destruction has come the freedom to be who we really are.’

A hundred years after the world was devastated by the bat fever virus, the UK is a country of agricultural communities where motherhood is seen as the ideal state for a woman, new beliefs have taken over from old religions, and the city of Blackthorn casts a threatening shadow over the north of England. Legacy travels backwards in time to link up with the characters from Tipping Point, Lindisfarne and UK2.

Seventeen-year-old Bree feels stifled by the restrictions of her village community, but finds a kindred spirit in Silas, a lone traveller searching for his roots. She, too, is looking for answers: the truth behind the mysterious death, forty years earlier, of her grandmother.

In 2050, Phoenix Northam’s one wish is to follow in the footsteps of his father, a great leader respected by all who knew him…or so his mother tells him.

In 2029, on a Danish island, Lottie is homesick for Lindisfarne; two years earlier, Alex Verlander and the kingpins of the Renova group believe they have escaped the second outbreak of bat fever just in time…

Book 4 of the Project Renova series rebuilds a broken country with no central government or law, where life is dangerous and people can simply disappear…but the post-Fall world is also one of possibility, of freedom and hope for the future.

  1. Thank you so, so much – and YES re Wolf! He is one of the reasons I want to write a book about the shacker uprising in Blackthorn!! Totally Ivarr, and also the guy in GoT, can’t think of his name now, who kept Theon prisoner and turned him into Reek! Randall or Randalf something? Think he was a Snow because illegitimate son of the House that took over Winterfell.

    Hope you liked the hermit… and did you guess who it was??! I had great fun doing the minor bloodlines too – like the fact that Travis and Heath’s ex, Aria, was the mother of the Byrons. I just slipped that one in – an ‘aha’ moment when I was writing!

  2. Terry Tyler: You can be very proud of the four book Project Renova series. “Couldn’t put it down” is a much used phrase but one that definitely can be applied to these books. I have just finished reading Legacy, the final book and a review will follow but I have to get my head around how this storyline was wound up. I’m still living in the story itself. There can be no better accolade than that. Thank you Terry Tyler for such an exciting series.

    1. Wow – thank you, Maureen. There is no greater compliment than that. I am delighted you thought so highly of this series. I take it you’d like a story about Blackthorn too, then…. I think I might have to write it after the current WIP. xx

      …especially Wolfie, Shelley. He does have his ways….

      Oh yes, Ramsay Bolton – duuuuuhhhh!!!
