Legacy of Blood (Skye Morrison Vampire series 4)
Posted by cynthiashepp
REVIEW BY CASSIE HOFFMAN
Skye Morrison has learned that vampires and werewolves are real. Since finding all that out, she has fallen in love with one, and secretly has a crush on another one. Being involved with vampires has changed her world, with being kidnapped and the worst that could happen…dying.
After waking up in a casket, Skye is faced with her fear. She is now a vampire and it wasn’t by her own choosing. It was either turn her or let her die, and Archer did what he thought was best and that was to make Skye one of them. Skye is something different from all other Day Walkers and Dark Ones. Since Amun breathed a part of his soul into her when he kidnapped her, this has made her something that no one has ever seen before.
What is she exactly? This is what they will have to find out. She can’t drink blood from a bag, it will make her sick. She can only drink blood from a donor, and when that happens her venom gives the blood donor a BIG SURPRISE. If she drinks from another vampire, she is able to take their power and have it for a few weeks. Skye also hold the eye color of The Dark One. When she gets angry….they turn pitch black. Otherwise, her eye color is white with black pupils. That isn’t normal. She isn’t like your regular newborn; she is able to control herself as well.
With her having been infected by Amun previous to her turning into a Day Walker, Skye will have to prove she is good and if they determined she is a Dark One, like Amun, they will give her the final death. With the Army of An Dilis, Skye will have to perform a few tests given by Ruara and Brothers of the Army of The Faithful. After going through all these test it is up to them to decide if they will let her live. And surprisingly they do, and offer her to placement in a very surprising place.
With having passed the tests and having her life still intact, it is now time to think about how to get to Amun. He wants Skye to meet him in a week to become his bride, and if not he will start killing all her loved ones. Will they be able to get to Amun and kill him, or will having Amun breathing a part of his soul in Skye affect her if they try to kill him? If so, how will they go about making Amun no more?
Archer and Skye’s start trying to have a relationship finally. He is her maker, which makes their bond that much more. Will they finally become a couple? Oh, you will just have to wait and see
In this book, Jameson isn’t in it till the end. All the while he doesn’t know about Skye being a vampire, or what is going on with her. The last time he saw her, she wanted nothing to do with him, but finally they need Jameson for his healing. He soon finds out what has been going on while he was gone, on top of finding out Archer and Skye are in love with each other. Jameson is heartbroken. Can he ever forgive Skye and Archer?
Skye Morrison is even better as a kick ass vampire with her own Divine Power! What is that? It is something none of the other vampires have ever seen before, and it is super cool. What do you think her Divine Power is? To top it off Skye is a phenomenon, a rock star in their race, and with her Sacred vow ceremony coming up, everyone is excited to meet the infamous Skye Morrison.
Legacy of Blood was great from the begging to the end. We get to finally see Skye as a vampire and see her struggles of accepting it and showing everyone she isn’t evil like Amun. And for those who love Archer we get some Archer and Skye loving and I think I’m finally TEAM ARCHER! YES I SAID IT! Lol. LoB was written very well and kept you turning the pages or, in my case, sliding my finger. I love vampire Skye. I can’t wait for the next book to see how she grows into her new immortal life. LoB was action packed and kept you guessing, which I loved. The only person who was missing until the end of the book was Jameson, I was sad to not have him in the book, but all the other characters are there, and we get to meet new ones. J.L. McCoy hit it out of the park again with Legacy of Blood! I give this book 5 HUGE STARS.
“I want to be the person everyone thinks I am, but the reality is so far from it. I’m irrevocably flawed and I have issues that you know nothing about.”-Skye
“Imagining the rest of my life without you in it wasn’t very appealing either. I love you, Skye Morrison; I love you from the deepest part of my being. I never want to go through what I’ve been through in the last five days ever again. It was soul crushing not being able to look into your eyes or hear your voice.”-Archer
“You held it all, Skye….everything I had. I love you, even after all the bullshit you put me through, but I’m letting you go. I have to make my heart move on before loving you fucking kills me.”- Jameson
