Ex umbris scelestis, Ex corde amor, Ex libris mens.
Out of the shadows comes villainy, out of the heart comes love, and out of books comes our soul.

Galley Review - Legacies: Shadow Grail #1 by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill
If this were a food, I would say it was raw cookie batter -- gross and slimy if you add too much water, yet very good to eat. Also it is raw, which means it has a lot of potential. This book is not a standalone; perhaps the next book in the series could be one, but when you read Legacies, there are so many plot points left untied by the end of the story that it would take several books to tie them all off, if each book introduces no new others. For example: the parents of everyone in Oakhurst either committed suicide or died when a mysterious flash of light either started a fire or caused a car crash. Coincidence? Who knows! Maybe they'll tell us in the next book.
