As it stands, it is obviously the product of a young, unformed mind with neither the technical skills nor the life experience required to write a largely palatable book. Princess Alera of Hytanica Kingdom is coming of age to marry. I’m sure with a lot, lot more practice the author could be a good writer. Originally posted on The Authoress: So, it starts out with a prologue, which pretty much tells everything you need to know about the book.

She is just so annoying. Preview — Legacy by Cayla Legacy cayla kluver. We learn more about his upbringing and who and what he is about. And that completely ruins this book for me. Spellbound Cara Lynn Shultz.
I kept thinking all through Legacy that it’s okay, this is a bildungsroman, Alera will grow into her role and end up likeable. Also, stupid and pretty selfish. I felt as if nothing really happened and it was almost at the middle of the book that some action and romance started.
Alera does not do this. Steldor gave a short, scathing laugh. I only thought I caylz the heroine from Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade. Before she turns eighteen, she needs to choose a proper suitor to marry, one who is blessed by caylx father.

And it just pisses me off that the author advanced their story so much only for her to go back to Narian foolishly because “his blue eyes are so passionate”.
This is one of the things that Alera struggles too and it helped me to create a bond legacy cayla kluver her.
Legacy cayla kluver brilliant story by a young new author captured my heart, and I am eager to read the tale’s conclusion in the following book. You submitted the following rating and review.
That’s because by that age, they were already intelligent, legacy cayla kluver adults. Oh the poor words, they were writhing in pain on the page, overflowing with abundant sorrow. Instead, Alera’s biggest problem is that her eighteenth birthday is, traditionally, when the princess is supposed to marry and her only real option or the only real option her father is gunning for is Steldor, who resembles Gaston from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
Writing something that could be considered both YA and high fantasy is hard — I will definitely give Kluver that much. All the while, Alera, though married to Steldor, still finds her heart belongs to Narian.
This surprised me as frequently her mother, the previous Queen comments on how much training she was given yet Alera doesn’t appear to have received much.
Give him a chance girl! Her father was often very judgemental towards her, and yet we find her in this predicament because of him. Everything just legacy cayla kluver at a nice constant pace. Trust me, it’ll happen eventually and you’ll be shocked out of your mind. With some editing, I think the Legacy series has the potential to become great.
Legacy (Legacy, #1) by Cayla Kluver
And uh, just to clarify, most people who get stabbed in the stomach die in medieval settings, because, you know, there’s the little problem of human anatomy with intestines and infection and uh, kljver how does this guy know that Narian hasn’t killed him from the stomach wound? Next year, at her birthday, she has to marry the man who will be the next king, by her father’s order. For some unfathomable reason, Harlequin Teen appears to have legacy cayla kluver up a self-pubbed teen author and given her a book contract, subsequently releasing legacy cayla kluver ARC, all without ever editing the book!!!
The most sickening part isn’t that Alera turns a blind eye to all this and eagerly gets with him at the end again. You want to know authors that get it right? Alera, our lovely protagonist, is annoying at the best of times. Klvuer just wanted her to truly stand up for herself instead of doing what was expected of her.
Narian her love interest was a great character and I just wish he’d had more time to shine.
