Set in late 18th century Ireland, Esme must grow up quickly in small, isolated northwestern town. Her parents are leaving for America, abandoning her and her sister to fend for themselves. As she struggles to find her place, she finds it difficult to keep hold of what's left that's precious to her.

Once married and in a new town, Esme's only friend, Aisling, helps her through difficult times, as her Traveler husband stays away longer and longer plying his trade.

While Esme has had some comfort in her small family, she must now find comfort on her own, as her treacherous sister tries stealing the family heirloom to sell, a brooch reputed to have mystical powers, which had been left to her by her grandfather. Esme must learn to cope with her dwindling family and growing despair in order to keep the brooch safe.

About the Author

Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She loves to draw and to create things. She says it's more of an obsession than a hobby. She likes looking up into the sky and seeing a beautiful sunset, or seeing a fragrant blossom or a dramatic seaside. She takes a picture or creates a piece of jewelry as her way of sharing this serenity, this joy, this beauty with others. Sometimes this sharing requires explanation – and thus she writes. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

This is a wonderful in-depth story of Esme and her family, and of the events that led up to Book 1, Legacy of Hunger. Legacy of Truth: Druid’s Brooch book 2 is well-written and nicely edited. A compelling tale set in 18th century Ireland, I was absorbed from the start and didn’t want it to end. I’m looking forward to reading more in book 3, as it travels further back through the family, it’s next on my list.

This was a well-written book, full of historical detail. It described Esme and her family, who lived in a small community in late 18th century Ireland. Esme's parents and younger siblings are leaving for America, while she and her twin sister marry. Esme moves with her husband to a new town and must learn to adapt to her new life. Her grandfather gifts her with a family heirloom, a brooch reputed to have mystical powers. Esme's twin devises a scheme to steal the brooch away. This was an intense, complicated book that follows Esme's life from a young girl to a mature woman.

5***** Enthralling Historical Fiction ** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review** As a History buff and a lover of all things Irish, I had high expectations for Legacy of the Truth. I lived up to them and then some! Christy Nicholas does a great job with character development as they’re believable and the reader follows their growth throughout the story. In my opinion, this is always a sign of good character development, when they turn out to be different from what you imagined they were at the beginning of a book. As for the storyline, its pace might seem a bit slow for some readers but that wasn’t the case for me. I was so fascinated by the writer’s skillful descriptions that I felt like I had traveled in time and was strolling around beautiful Ireland. For a historical fiction novel, it can’t get much better than that, right? At the same time, the plot is realistic, extremely well-researched, and beautifully written. I recommend this book to readers who want to know more about Ireland’s rich History and folklore.

*I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.* Historical fiction is always a genre that I enjoy reading. I've never disliked a book from the genre before, and that sure isn't the case now. This book's rich depiction of Irish folklore and attention to detail is what makes it such a captivating read. From the get go, we are introduced to our characters - and boy are they unforgettable. The characterization is extremely well done, and I found myself rooting for (and against) many. Our MC, Esme, has near-impossible odds stacked against her and I absolutely love how she perseveres despite that. The secondary characters all have distinct voices that reach you through the page, and that made for a very rich story. The world building was done in a very subtle and gradual manner, allowing the reader to slowly immerse themselves into the story. I totally devoured this book in two sittings! Also, the plot was intriguing and drama-filled, but I did think that the beginning of the story took a while to find its footing. After that, however, everything kept going uphill. In short, this was a masterfully written story with an enthralling, drama-filled plot that'll keep you on your toes 'till the very end. The Irish aspects of the story were incorporated really well and the characters had very distinct voices. This is the second book in the Druid's Brooch series. I haven't read the first book yet, but if it's anything like this one, then sign me up!

I was given an Advanced Review Copy in return for a honest review. This was my first book by this author, and is the second in the series. I really enjoyed this historical fantasy. I could tell a lot of thought and detail was put into the writing. I was drawn into the plot from the very beginning. I became invested in Esme and really hoped for the best. Well written story, with it's developed storyline and descriptive setting. The cover, as well, is beautiful and eye-catching; it really drew me to the book. Though I had wished I had read the first book in the Druid Brooch series, I really enjoyed this magical tale. A new must read author for me! - Sarah
