Thomas O’Shea is the bad boy in a family of overachievers, haunted by what he saw as a child. When he turns to a woman known as The Wizard to help him solve the mystery of his adoptive father’s death, the killers start closing in. His childhood memories hold the key to saving his family–if they can uncover the truth buried beneath years of fear and deceit.
Legacy of Truth is the 8th book in Genie Gabriel’s Halo Legacy series and can be read on its own. However, I have to admit that I think the reader would get the full effect of the book better if they were more familiar with the series. This is the first book of the series I read and there were times I found myself confused with the characters. I’m thinking that if I had read the series from the beginning, I might have found the read easier going.
That said, I loved the main characters—I really liked how the author put two damaged people together and showed how they could help heal each other. The mystery portion of the book was well done as well.
There were parts in the story that seemed to make leaps from one situation to the other and I had to go back and reread some of those sections. I don’t know whether they alluded to things that might have happened in earlier books or not, but that was the only drawback I saw to the book.
I am definitely going to go back and pick up the rest of the series–I’d really like to get to know these characters better and find out more about them and their lives.
