Book Review: Legacy of Light

If only they knew us as more than accursed.
The Holy Empire hates the People of Light. Maripes, arriving in its capital, seeks to save his people from certain destruction. The Inquisition seeks theocratic justice, and it will stop at nothing to rid the world of those it considers evil.
Still, Maripes must try. For if he fails, doom will certainly befall his people. Standing in his way? The High Inquisitor, the Empress, and a million subjects all indoctrinated to believe he is evil incarnate.
Should be an easy task.
Otherwise, his son Mono, a soldier in the legions of their people, will face the fight of his life . .

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Despite the fast pace of this book, I got bored quickly. It felt a smidge repetitive, but for the first book in a new series.. It was okay. I will continue with the next book in hopes it is a bit more action packed. 

I am not saying this is a bad book. It’s not… it has serious potential. I found the world building very interesting and I think the author has created a nice base for the next books in the series to really be something special. I love how in depth the religion is explained and how much it pertains to the story. 

This is another LGBTQ friendly book and I absolutely love seeing a queer relationship without all the mess of “coming out.” It is refreshing to see it as accepted without it having to be announced.

I want to thank the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
