Legacy of Hunger is the first book in the Druid’s Brooch Series by Christy Nicholas. This is a historical fiction story that has adventure, drama, fantasy, romance, magic, friendship, and intrigue. I loved how the author wove the story around the actual potato famine that plagued Ireland in the 1800’s. The story a is really well written and polished piece of work that also appears to have been thoroughly researched, with meticulous attention to detail.
I loved watching Valentina develop and grow as the story unfolded, who we meet at the beginning of the book is entirely different from the person we’re following at the end. All the characters are really well developed and interesting- I enjoyed meeting all the secondary characters who really added to the whole story .
I felt that the story was a little slow to get going, and it took me a while to ‘get into it’- but once the pace picked up I found that I was pulled into the story more and started to really enjoy the journey.
An interesting Tale!
Thank you, Ms. Nicholas!
