    This is one of those moments when you realize the author has rea

    This is one of those moments when you realize the author has really come into his/her own.  They have created the book that really shows you how much they have worked, how much they have grown, and just how damn good they really are.  
    Legacy is that book.   I find myself wanting to blubber on and on about how good this book is.  I loved it that much.  It is powerful and brings together some very interesting characters that I think was genius, and inevitably to make them come together for the showdown that is coming. 
    I have always been a huge fan of Crane; he is that undiscovered gem in a sea of self publishing stardom.  If you have not given this author a go I sincerely urge you to.  Mr. Crane can craft a story with so much emotion and creativity that you will find yourself being drawn into the plot experiencing every detail with the characters.  
    I honestly feel like Legacy was the "holy grail" for me.  I found nothing, absolutely nothing that I disagreed with, and it just came out perfect.  
    One of the reasons was how the chapters were set up.  I loved how he did flashbacks and then present day when it was relevant. And the flashback chapters were executed wonderfully.  The plot lines flowed so well and there was never a dull moment.  The action scenes were even better choreographed and I swear Crane pays so much attention to even the smallest detail, like how the guns are aimed correctly to the type of gas mask Sienna used, that helps us really feel like we are there in the room where the fight is going on.
    Sure we could say this is a "guy" book from all the action, fighting, and gore that it pertains but it isn't really even that.  It is everyone's book.  There really is something in Legacy that spans different genres to bring many readers to its pages.  Sienna has really come into her own.  And I loved the remorse she shows, as well as someone else who I was hoping would come to their senses eventually.  There are so many emotions that decorate the pages of this book: guilt, forgiveness, understanding, empathy, and of course fear.  
    Then to make a great book even better you add humor to the mix.  Even though Sienna has finally grown into a powerful and deadly young woman, she has kept her comedic relief that has really made this story what it is.  Even in the face of danger, Sienna can still crack a joke?  That is guts right there.  




    Last flashback chapter is utter mastery.  I think I read it the whole time with my mouth slightly agape.  Loved it so much!  
    We do find out some secrets in this book but Legacy really feels like our climatic book.  I don't know if that makes sense, but it just feels like so many things just came together and fit perfectly with the story.  Now is that to say that the book is loads of happy?  No.  And if you are used to Crane's work, you know he will make us cry with someone that had to kick the bucket.  But I think he puts a lot of thought in the decision and it isn't done easily.  I'm sure he is just as attached to these characters as we are, at least I hope so.  




    All in all, I really believe that Legacy brings together many characters that have just added perfection to this book.  This was the most thought provoking book in the series for me and I just felt that Crane has achieved pure writing genius with this one.  
    Or simply put ......Mastery.

    I will be the first to admit that Crane drives me absolutely bon

    I will be the first to admit that Crane drives me absolutely bonkers because he is such a master weaver of plots. I get all smug and feel like Sherlock Holmes on a high when I think I have figured out exactly where he is taking the story. Then it's Wham Bam Thank you for playing Sherlock, as he throws a spanner into my well laid explanation.
    So let's see where we are at the beginning of the eighth book in Alone in the box series.
    Sienna has been delegated to top dog at Omega, which sort of happens when the leadership team falls prey to a series of unplanned fatal accidents. This also means she is in charge of what is left, ergo the straggling limping remains of
    the Unit.
    After all the excitement in Enemies (book 7) she decides to hop on a plane all footloose and carefree, except she doesn't realize that her feet aren't exactly loose anymore. The powers that be have other plans for her. They also have some surprises to spring on Sienna, some of which are less than enjoyable.
    Without revealing any of the major events in the story I want to at least try and discuss some of them in a way that will omit any revelation. Did you get any of that? No neither did I. It sounded way better in my head than it does on screen.
    Mama Bear Sierra turns up out of the blue and I can honestly say for the first time in eight books mother and daughter manage to connect on a level which is less than vitriolic. Somewhere along the line I think one of them needs to accept that they are more or less re-enacting family secrets, problems and schemes devised by third parties over and over again through the generations. Sierra is Sienna and Sienna is Sierra, add on grandmother and great-grandmother and you have a whole lot of orchestrated events tumbling over each other and the direction of their personal history. They think, especially Sierra, that they have changed the course of fate, when in fact other people have been pulling the strings in the background when it became necessary or convenient.
    Some of that becomes evident during this book.
    I really want to get my teeth into Sovereign.
    By the middle of this story I had come to the conclusion that there must be a time travelling element involved. The flashbacks to specific Meta, who had interacted with Sovereign made me wonder whether he knew exactly who or what she would imbibe, which would explain his killing some and letting others live.
    Did I mention the author and his propensity for spanners?
    Book eight is the calm before the storm, the eye of the hurricane and so eerily tranquil that I know the last two books are going to just implode.
    Sienna is walking the last stretch of the mile towards fulfilling her destiny, even if she is completely unaware of what that might be exactly but I am guessing from the ending in this book that she isn't in the dark anymore.
    Sienna has broken free of the constraints of that box and she is finally getting a glimpse of what she is and what is expected of her.
    However it is Sienna, so if I know one thing for sure it is the fact that what everyone expects is never what she ends up doing.
    As always this ways a fantastic read.
    I received a copy of this book courtesy of the author.

    OMG

    Ok, for book 5 i wrote a short review saying to the author that he lost anuther reader after what happened. If you dont know what im talking about i suggest you start with the first book. I was sad angry crying and wanted to throw my nook. Then i calmed down and realized that if a book can make you feel all those emotions for fictional characters then it makes for a good read. Im so glad i stuck with it and cant wait to read the next book. I would highly suggest reading this series.
