Remedy

(The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 3)


By K.J.Simmill


Before there were legends there was war. 
Before fables came twisted truth and distorted tales. 
Things deemed too dangerous were sealed, and bound for all eternity. 
Or so it was believed. 

Whispers from an ancient realm threaten the peace, drawing a lone adventurer into The Depths of Acheron. 
He seeks something from within this sealed domain, and those banished want something in return. 
Something belonging to them. 

There was a prophecy forged of rebirth and death. 
But knowing what is to come can change what will be. 
And there is one who seeks to do just that. 
He intends to use every tool at his disposal, every distraction and manipulation, to ensure the future will be his. 

The time has come for the forgotten to be unveiled, and for the sealed to be unbound. Only then will the world know true fear.


What did I think of the book?


What if everything you thought you knew, everything you had been led to believe, was a lie?

Taya has suffered from terrible hallucinations all her life. Abandoned as a baby, if it was not for the care and diligence of Sunniva, then she did not dare think where she would be. Sunniva had warned that one day Taya's illness, her madness, would consume her, but what if the madness wasn't madness at all. What if her illness was caused by the woman who had so-called sworn to protect her?

Oh. My. Days! Buckle up and get ready for one hell of a ride. Remedy (The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 3) by K.J. Simmill is one of the most compelling and page-turning mythological fantasies that I have ever read.

There is a huge cast of characters in this book, they all have back stories, and no one is as they seem — what on earth was going on with Bray? I wasn’t expecting that! I loved the portrayal of Taya, and I really felt for her. Several times, in fact, I was actually in tears because of what she had to endure. Rob, was also one of my favourite characters although sometimes I just wanted to shake him. He could be so self-centred and driven to achieve his own desire that sometimes he came across as very callous, but underneath it all, he does have a very caring heart.

K.J.Simmill certainly has a way with words and her vivid descriptions really made this world come to life. Her word building was very elegant and a real joy to read. Remedy (The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 3) does work very well as a standalone but I think you would be doing yourself a disservice if you started with book 3. If you are looking for epic fantasy, then look no further than The Forgotten Legacies Series.

I Highly Recommend.
