Talk about authors who have absolutely no qualms about killing off characters. My respect to both of them, I haven't quite the stomach for it, at least not yet. The Wicked series started off to me as uninteresting, but Holly's sudden villainous streak coupled with the co-authors' devious and successful attempts to draw me in at the very end of the book caught me ordering this baby off Borders.com (many coupons attached, I am a college student after all).

Legacy outdid both Witch and Curse, as far as I'm concerned. The characters are becoming more complex, and I am enjoying watching both Amanda and Nicole's characters grow, while Holly falters and falls. It's a wonderful twist in a hero... having her fade to black instead of white. I am also enjoying observing Jeraud, a character whose intentions are always cloaked in mystery.

A few disappointments, as there are in any book. Holder and Viguie are constantly throwing Jer between life and death, as though they can't decide where he should be. It's frustrating for the reader, whoh can never be quite sure if the character is alive or dead. Another problem: while I respect the authors' ability to kill off the good characters, for a change of pace, I'd love to see a couple of villains die.

Of course, there is Spellbound for that, and the duology is sitting on my bedside table, just itching to be read. ( )

I found this book better than the first one and it actually kept my interest. ( )

I really enjoyed these to books. Although I found that Legacy kind of dragged on in the beginning, a bit repetitive for the first few pages.

Much better then the first book, I can't wait for the next book in the series, which is coming out July 2009.

Legacy by Nancy Holder - overall a descent story line. I enjoyed the action, however in some places it seemed to drag out a little longer than I like. The story of the covens uniting is interesting and the Deveraus/Cahors fued is still on.

Spellbound by Nancy Holder - Okay now this one the story line got even better and didn't seem to drag out as much as the previous book. There were some twists and turns I didn't see coming which made for some interesting reading. Looking forward to getting a copy of the next installment. ( )

This is an amazing series about witches and warlocks and all types of magic and romance. It's set in Seattle, which is a very rainy, very magic city. I loved these books, and i couldn't believe it when they ended so abruptly, and they stopped writing them a while ago so i don't think they're going to continue. ( )
