Legacy of Hunger: Druid’s Brooch Series: #1 by Christy Nicholas is a historical novel with a tiny dash of fantasy. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more of a magical element. Christy has set the scene well and you could see and feel the devastation of Ireland and it’s people in the midst of the potato famine in one of the most turbulent historical periods in time. Whilst I found the story interesting I felt it lacked something, what that something is for me, I am unsure, perhaps it was the lack of more, more celtic and fantasy elements? It could just be that I am not really a historical lover. Having said that it was well written and I truly felt for these people and what they went through. Christy is a good writer and I am sure there are many that will love this story.
