This book was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Legacy is a graphic novel inspired by a dream that the author had. The plot follows Renata, a young girl living on an island, through an eventful day after discovering a stranger washed ashore, but the story and important events span a much longer amount of time.

I went into this book not really knowing anything about it, and I’m glad I did so. The first few chapters really build up the anticipation and curiosity, which had me keep reading. This book takes place in the future and blends together a mix of mythology, survival, and apocalyptic tales to create a unique story.

The art of this graphic novel is in grayscale, and many action panels without dialogue make the pages read quickly. I finished this book in one sitting after getting sucked into the premise and being curious about where the story was going. I enjoyed the characters having been drawn in an anime-style. There were a few spelling errors, but not to the extent to where I couldn’t understand what was being said.

Overall, I would recommend checking this book out, especially if you’re interested in graphic novels or comic books and like books that build up anticipation in an interesting way.
