Book Review: Legacy of Light by C.D. Tavenor

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 . . .

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Legacy of Light is a novella and the first in a series. It’s in three parts and is about Maripes, his son, and his granddaughter who are all People of Light. They are hated by the Holy Empire and only want to find a way for peace between the two peoples. Is that even possible when hate is involved?

The world-building in Legacy of Light is admirable especially since this is a novella. This could have easily been a full-length novel (I wish) which I hope the next story is. Once I started this book, I had to read the whole thing. I definitely look forward to reading more about the People of Light.
