"Once upon a time, there lived three witches…."

As a child, Amarrah loved her grandmother's stories of three witches who were members of the king's harem. But they were more than just stories. Amarrah knows she was there with them…and now their legacy, along with an ancient box that once belonged to them, lies in her hands.

Charged with keeping the box safe, Amarrah is heartbroken when it is stolen from her while she moves to America. Years later, she is shocked to see it on TV and is determined to get it back. Tracking the artifact leads her to Sergeant Harrison Brockson, a handsome soldier who stirs memories of a man she knew centuries ago in ancient Babylon. Is Harrison the key to finding the box—or could he be her destiny?

Prequel novella to Maggie Shayne's exciting trilogy, The Portal.

    Gah!!!!!!! I love novellas, especially when they are attached to a beautiful series that I want to just snuggle up with or roll around in (like children with glitter or dogs with mud.. etc.. haha!). This was an amazing start to the Portal Series!!

    The connection of Amarrah and Harrison is brilliant and the visions/memories of the past are so breathtakingly described and vivid, I just wish I could have been there! (Does this series need to be turned into a movie? I am thinking Oh My Goodness YES!). Loved the adventure and danger throughout the novella. Also really loved the urgency and dedication Amarrah has for her task and that she refuses to let her Grandmother down.

    Books like this remind me that somewhere, there are people with a higher purpose that live their whole lives to do for others, follow traditions, and make a difference in the world and the lives of those around them. What a beautiful reminder! Thank you, Maggie for this fantastic peek into the Portal Series! I can't wait for the rest of the series and to find out what happens with the three witches who are sentenced to die for their beliefs...

    Amazing start to Maggie Shayne's new series!!! MUST READ

    WOW!!! I absolutely fell in love with this book! Maggie Shayne has always been a favorite of mine and she has outdone herself with this book! I am so excited to read the rest of the series! I have never found a book I enjoyed more than this even though it was a short one. I finished it in one sitting and when I was done I had an overwhelming sense of happiness. It may sound strange but I felt at peace after reading it! Maggie thank you so very much for an amazing start to your new series!

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

    Even though this is only a novella, in true Maggie Shayne fashion she hooks the reader from the first page and doesn't let go!

    Action, adventure, romance, and the most beautiful segue into the 1st full length novel of THE PORTAL series, Mark of the Witch!

    I thoroughly enjoyed Legacy of the Witch and am confident that everyone else will as well.

    LITERAL ADDICTION gives Legacy of the Witch a well deserved 5 Skulls and would highly recommend those who are excited for THE PORTAL series to accept the gift that Maggie is giving to you all and read it. :) It's simply beautiful...

    A perfect setup for this new series!!!!

    I wish I would have read this before I received an ARC of the 1st book in The Portal Series, Mark of the Witch. Only because reading this first would have helped me while reading it, this sets that book up PERFECTLY!!! I read a few reviews already for Legacy of the witch and one said that this enovella had to many holes, well Mark of the Witch fills in every single one of them. So if you felt that way as well at the end of this novella go preorder Mark of the Witch now and I promise you won't feel that way aftr you get your hands on it.

    It's hard to review this alone and not intertwine it with book 1 but I'm going to try. In Legacy of the witch you will see how Maggie sets up the story that will be the main plot for the whole series. We also get to see how Maggie is presenting us with the writing style she is going to use throughout the whole series, which is fabulous.

    One thing I must point out is that she blends the character and their previous lives perfectly, as the main characters get visions or memories revealed to them it helps the main character put the story together as you are reading it. So you get to discover it WITH the character.

    I have been waiting for this series for a very long time and I am extremely happy with it, Legacy will leave you lustful and hungry for Mark of the Witch and Mark of the Witch left me begging Maggie and asking her who I had to sell my kidney to in order to get book 2 now.

    I recommend The Portal Series for any reader looking for something I haven't seen in a witch paranormal based book before. It's been said a million times before and I can imagine a million times more after the rest of these books are released, Maggie knows how to cast a spell on her readers that has you missing the feel of her books in your hand.

    I give this enovella 5 out of 5 stars, and now I'm going to retread Mark of the Witch again.

    amazing!

    I can NOT wait for the rest of this series! Maggie held me spellbound with her first witches trilogy and since I found out about this one I've been counting the days. The prequel does not disappoint! I sat tapping at my e-reader wanting more...

    Well, there isn't much that I can say directly about the story that hasn't already been said by these other lovely people, but wow! I read the entire story while sitting on the grass in the middle of a renaissance faire, while my daughter napped. I couldn't have cared less that people looked at me weird (e-reader+renn faire= not something you see every day) I was hooked, and thank goodness my daughter stayed asleep for the duration! I was bummed when it was over, because I wanted more! I am a huge Maggie Shayne fan, and once again, I'm not let down at all.I can't wait for Mark of the Witch to come out!

    60 pages

    60 very fast pages. Paranormal, reincarnation, witchcraft, romance, mystery, wow all in a sixty page preview to a new book series. I say skip this one and go straight to the first book. This was a wonderful teaser, but I want more. Chick book ages 16 and up.

    Very Disappointed

    I have read many of this author's books & enjoyed them. But this particular one read like an amateur. Glad this was free it would have been a total waste of money that being said I won't be bothering with this particular trilogy.

    Even though I am not that big of a fan of Witch books I have to agree with others that have read this book it is another great book from Maggie Shayne. I really cant wait for the next one in the series . As with the wings in the night series I can see that Maggie will have another sensation on her hands . Even though it was a short story it does set you up for wanting more ..

    Fabulous intro to this series!!

    I too wish that I had read this book before Mark of the Witch as I had already read a ARC of that book. The only reason I say that is because a lot is explained in this book that ties perfectly with Mark of the Witch. This book is for sure a FANTASTIC intro into this series and I can't wait for the rest of this series to come out. Maggie Shayne has the ability to lure you in and just keep you wanting more and more. If anyone had any doubts after reading this book I say give the next book a try at least. You will not be disappointed in the least bit.
