A Review: The Lenoir Legacy


I'm enchanted with The Lenoir Legacy by Cristen Faulkenberry.  I love high fantasy, and this is with out a doubt modern high fantasy writing.


We follow the story of Rosealyn, princess of Orda'an, daughter of King Phillipe. The monarchs in her family all have a gift that passes down to the next monarch when the ruling monarch dies.  This gift allows them to see glimpses of the future, present, and past. We can't forget Rosealyn's protector, Charles and all the secrets he has, and then underlying attraction between the two of them. 


Patience is required with this one, and the unfolding of this story occasionally was bumpy. I felt the beginning was a bit disorganized A few times I almost considered not finishing the book, but I'm glad I stuck this one through, because I really enjoyed this story.  It doesn't really pick up the pace until you're about halfway through, so coffee up, snuggle up and dig in. In the end I really fell in love with this story.  There's dragons, and politics, elves, magic, and a slowest of slow burn romance that refreshingly isn't the center of the book.  The world building gradually unfolds by the end of the book, making for a charming read.  

The Lenoir Legacy was released in March 2022, and is available for purchase now! It's even available on kindle unlimited!
