Legacy, the second book in the Last Princess by A.M. Hardin. Cherish and her guards are on the run. Forced to flee after the actions of her brother Forrest, they arrive at Andrei’s grandmothers home. But she isn’t a knitting granny, no sir. His grandmother is the leader of the resistance in her village, questioning the roles of those around them, Cherish’s father (though they did not dislike him). Cherish is thrown into the idea that in order to better her kingdom she will need to take up the mantle of queen and have faith in herself.
Since arriving at her home, Cherish had been satisfied in just being the princess in name and not having to worry about it in actions as much. But with the new turn of events, she has to take on all the politics and the kingdom. But can she overcome what Forrest is trying to do? He has deemed her a traitor and how many people are going to believe him over her, since she is only half human. What new obstacles will occur and since Cherish isn’t the traitor to the kingdom or the rebels, she will have to learn fast who is a traitor to her.
I really enjoy A.M. Hardin’s writing style. I am not always fond of first person narratives because too often I see a change between present and past tense. But Hardin does a great job of always being consistent in her writing. Cherish isn’t a female main character that needs to be sheltered, and she proves it again and again in this story. Each of the guys are written to have such a great individual personality that her desire to be with all of them makes perfect sense. She has created a great world for Cherish to explore.
