Sacrifice was a great ending to the Legacy series. This last novel did leave me heartbroken for Steldor, but really, I guess this whole series has left my heart bleeding for this beautiful guy. I knew by the second book Allegiance that Steldor wasn't going to get Alera—the girl he loved with all his heart. I accepted that. I accepted that Narian was the guy Alera loved, but I was hoping that in this final book I would at least get the ending I wanted for Steldor. And the one he deserved. But Steldor got ripped to pieces again, in my opinion. I can't say anymore, as I don’t want to spoil it for you. I can only hope that now the author will write Steldor’s own story and give him his happily ever after. There's no doubt that Steldor made the Legacy series a fantastic one for me, and he's the reason I love this story and kept reading it. Steldor’s character is my favorite and he out shined Alera and Narian, but I’m sure you too have your favorite. Also with Steldor having only a small part in this last book, it was kind of slow for me.
I will say I enjoyed the author bringing in another girl character, Shaselle, who is Steldor’s eighteen year old cousin. Shaselle is the total opposite of Alera. Sacrifice is also told from her point of view, too. Shaselle’s character is awesome, just like Steldor. She’s a beautiful feisty tom boy. Shaselle is definitely Steldor’s cousin, she just as cocky and stubborn as Steldor. Shaselle’s character still brings the excitement and energy for me to this storyline after no longer having Steldor’s fun and cocky self to do this in this last book.
Sacrifice is a great finale, and I recommend the Legacy series as an awesome, break-your-heart series. I plead to the author to write a book for Steldor, who is an amazing character. I love him so much. Please give him the happy ending he deserves. Thank you, Cayla Kluver, for the enthralling Legacy series and Steldor!

Man was I worried about this one. I loved the first two in the series but I was so apprehensive that it could not end in a manner that would be true to the story and make me happy. Tall order I know, but I wanted to see how it could be done.
The end of book two left me reeling. War and country take over is not a new topic to me. But for some reason the way it was presented really hit home for me. This book begins with the devastated country ripped of everything it has ever known. Countless high ranking officials were murdered and/or tortured. They've settled for peace, but at what cost? The Corkiyan priestess has harsh terms all designed to make the men of the country feel lower than low. Alera really has power in name only.
Alera really grew into her character in this book. I think in the beginning she was happy to have peace and quite a number of those closest to her still alive. She was willing to work with the conditions laid out before her. But, I don't think she realized the full effects of those terms. She doesn't initially see how it is belittling her people. She feels at first that the best course of actions is to follow these rules and eventually the reigns will be loosened. It's not long before she sees the noose for what it really is. In a country that is use to having a male ruler, Alera realizes she alone has the ability to make the proper negotiations to ensure her country has a chance to survive.
But, the people of her country do not take like to rebel in subtle ways at first. And it doesn't come from who you might expect. I wasn't surprised at Steldor or even London's actions. They were reckless and they knew it. But, they weren't going to stand being oppressed. I enjoyed their antics and when they were serious about overthrowing the priestess, their plan was amazing.
I love that we get a part of this story told from Shaselle's point of view. With her we get to see the feeling around the country. I love her personality, but think she was extremely naive in how she believed she could help the rebel movement. Nothing she did was well thought out and always ended up causing way more harm than good. I was happy to see her find love in the end.
Truly way more to talk about, but I was extremely satisfied with the ending. With this awesome fantasy work under her belt, I am looking forward to what Cayla Kluver could do next.
