    35 5Received via Member Giveaways at LibraryThingAs with the much shorter preuel I enjoyed the premise the characters and the story that introduces the Balancers in a in depth manner than the preuelHaving said that I do share the opinion with another reviewer that I would have liked the book better if it had been told from James' point of view outright rather than simply put forth in the form of a journalAlso like with the preuel I found the malapropisms and two misspellings at one point focussed had 3 s and Lyons had its s missing Lyon as was used in the book is the chief herald of Scotland as opposed to the city in France to be distracting So too was the character diction especially James'First the diction Some language shift can be accounted for during the years that James has lived and this is a work of fiction but James is a product of the 17th century and this should be reflected to a point in at least some of his speech patterns Maybe I am being a bit of a nitpick but there it isNow for the malapropisms Again I may be a bit of a nitpick about this but I find it a little irritating to be distracted by words that may SOUND as if they belong in the sentence but are not necessarily the proper word For example peace instead of piece p 293 my conscious instead of my conscience p 106 morns instead of mourns p 258 These are just a few of the approximately half page of malapropisms I found while readingCross posted to LibraryThing Smashwords and com

    In Legacy Book One of the Balancer Chronicles Katrina Blake has just inherited her grandmother's estate When she discovers a journal written by an ancestor her life will be changed forever and the forever part is literalI must say that this was one of the most original stories I have read in a long time and I'm not sure how to categorize it paranormal romance? urban fantasy? a bit of both? The concept of the balancers immortal beings whose purpose is to keep other supernatural entities in check was very interesting However at times it felt like there was too much in the story extraterrestrials werewolves vampires spirit walkers they're all there As well and this is just my personal taste I don't really care for romance stories I know we women are all supposed to want lots of romance in books but I really don't Don't get me wrong though I did actually enjoy this book It was well written and although the story lagged in places I'm guessing because this book is meant to set up the rest of the series I never felt I was forcing myself to continue Admittedly it wasn't really my cup of tea but I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes paranormal romances or is just looking for something a little bit different

    Legacy Book One of the Balancer Chronicles is an fascinating book I have not been a fan of supernatural novels dealing with vampires and witches but Chris Adonn has turned me onto his Balancer novels I look forward to the follow up volumes in this series The characters are well developed and one becomes emotionally involved with and grow to love each of the characters I was surprised at how involved I became in the book and found it extremely difficult to put down once I started reading itI urge anyone to read this book and find out for themselves the role that the Balancers play in keeping the world in sync and everything running smoothly Of course what they do takes a toll on them but it is in their nature to continue the work that has been set forth for them I think everyone will connect with James and his friendship with Wolf This is James' story and his passing of the torch to another generation It may be fantastical but I found it interesting beyond what I felt I would It is a great read and as I stated I look forward to the coming volumes Thank you Chris Adonn

    This book is a great rainy day read very enjoyable The plot is interesting and leaves the reader wanting ; the characters are mysterious yet very honest The writing style of the author is good nothing undesirable there The reader will enjoy the subtlety of the author in explaining delicate scenarios and their resultant affect on the characters' feelings The connection between the past and the present is strong in this novel the reader will enjoy two stories that of the main character and her male counterpart James The reader will be happy throughout James' forays into love and romance and feel unhappy along with him as his life inevitable leads to sorrow The reader will hold on to residual anger at Kat's grandmother for her seemingly hard facade in front of her granddaughter This book is a great read for young adultsadults who enjoy discovering well kept secrets I received this book to review this in no way altered my opinion

    Legacy Book One of the Balancer Chronicles was an engaging story cataloguing the life of James William Youngman in a journal to one of his heirs Katrina as the remaining heir to the Black Rose Estate she is reuested to return to the house and read a missive left to her yet she has no will to remain at the home That is until she begins reading the account of her great ancestor and his supernatural abilitiesThis story captured my interest right from the beginning I enjoyed the first installment immensely but have one complaint where is the next installment I want it now This beginning to the Balancer Chronicles is really just that a beginning There were many fantastic parts to the story but no real ending yet I was left hanging which is probably the author’s intention capturing my attention and giving me just enough to want This copy was a LibraryThing Member Giveaway

    Read and Reviewed by my 18 year old daughter Sarah BowerLegacy by Chris Adonn was a fantastic start to my summer reading It is the retelling of James Blackburn’s life through an almost interactive diary that his very great grand daughter is reading Over 400 years worth of experiences as being a balancer made for a very good story The grand daughter who’s eyes you are reading through is Katrina She has returned to her grandmother’s estate following her death as a favor to the executer of her grandmother’s estate As she reads she finds out that she too is a balancer and there is a whole world of mythical creatures that exist uietly with humans Balancers are the reason they remain out of the public’s eye This story was incredible and I am hungrily awaiting the next installment in this series

    I would like to start this review by saying that reading a book about someone reading a book can be rather boring Now that being said it works in this book Now there are some parts that are hard to follow Talking about Energy Proteons Angels Lions Apes etc I’m not sure that readers reuire that much background to understand the story but I do hope that readers do not lose interest during these parts because the story is good Just to be clear this does turn into a love story A good love story but a love story non the less Now I’m not a big prude but it felt like the foul language was not needed and just thrown in Swear words are not always needed I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series

    A cracking good read Loved the light hearted way in which the character of James using the written word and telepathy relays his own history whilst explaining the concept of ‘Balancers’ protectors of mankind to Katrina his great greatGrandaughter and newly emerged Balancer The depth of explanations could have in lesser hands been tedious but Chris Adonn made it extremely interesting and writes with natural humour and compassion This book made me laugh and cry I was so caught up with the characters In essence she made me care and want Can’t wait for Book Two

    I liked the characters and plot The Balancers are a very interesting idea magical immortal humans set to protect other humans and the balance between the supernatural and naturalI found myself really liking most of the characters The way the two main characters interacted was interesting and something I hadn't run across before Unfortunately there was uite a cliff hanger at the end of the book I guess I'll have to buy the next book when it comes outThis is a very good book and I recommend it to urban fantasy readers
