Brooklyn Harper’s friends have betrayed her, her heart is broken, and all of humanity is at risk.
After Kirin’s unannounced arrival in Louisiana, Brooklyn finds herself scrambling for a way out of an impossible situation. Kirin is creating the deadly Genesis Cull, and Brooklyn doesn’t know who to turn to for help.
With no other options, she’s forced to trust her nemesis, Juneau Malloy. His support allows the group of Special Omen Operatives to gear up, form a plan of action, and train for the day when they come face-to-face with their worst fear—going to war with their friends.
There is a divide in the once inseparable group of Omens, and their only hope is to put the pieces back together.
Julian Yu Matsumoto agonizes over the difference between right and wrong, love and sacrifice, genocide and revolution. While he struggles with his feelings for Kirin, his moral compass is spinning round and round, his heart is being pulled in different directions, and Julian is desperate to answer questions he never thought he would have to ask.
Is Kirin’s Genesis Cull a revolution or genocide?
Could there be another way to save themselves and humanity as they know it?
Will Julian pay the ultimate price for loving a monster?
Their only hope for redemption is—the Legacy Strain.
Legacy Strain is the third book in a trilogy. As such, the first two books are amazing and should be read first as this is not a stand alone novel. SO I will try and keep this spoiler free.
The Omens are warriors and they are strongly tested. There will be divides in the group that may be impossible to overcome even with those who love each other most. But in the end, the story answers all the questions and rewards the reader with a deserved ending. Perhaps a bit too clean and happy for my taste, but a conclusion is a good thing.
I was surprised by how some characters I had liked in the first stories, did not appeal to me as much in this story, but the depth and change made sense. The author created an interesting world and I enjoyed my visit to it.
I loved the inclusiveness of this novel, I haven’e found many interesting LGBTQ Sci-Fi novels that I enjoyed. I recommend the reader enjoy the entire series.
4 out of 5 stars.
Book 1: Omen Operation
Book 2: Echo Campaign
Book 3: Legacy Strain
Taylor Brooke is the author of the sci-fi adventure trilogy The Isolation Series. She started out as a freelance makeup artist, and quickly discovered her love of elves, zombies, mermaids, kaiju, and monsters of all kinds. After receiving eight professional certifications in special effects makeup, working on countless projects, and fleshing out a multitude of fantastical creatures, she turned her imagination back to her one true love — books. Taylor has had a knack for writing since she was a little girl, and received recognition for her skills throughout grade school and junior college. When she’s not nestled in a blanket typing away on her laptop, she can be found haunting the local bookstore with a cup of steaming hot tea in her hands, scanning the shelves for new reads, or hiking one of the many mountains that surround her home in Oregon.
