Review: The Chronicles of the White Tower IV: Legacy (https://pedrocamacho.org/2016/08/21/review-the-chronicles-of-the-white-tower-iv-legacy/)

 

Legacy is the book 4 of a great fantasy saga. In this volume, Mark Patrick jumps into the abyss and bring us back two marvelous stories in just one novel.

 

On the one hand, we have Mary Anne’s story, knowing more about her and the Order of the White Tower. On the other hand, we have a modern day detective story with crimes, chasings, betrayals…

 

These are the ingredients of a novel with an easy-to-read prose, full of hidden and not so hidden references to language uses, the English culture and musical lore. There is a bunch of good characters, well characterized that are the perfect counterparts for Marian, the wonderful star of this story. Mark Patrick is able to put us in the skin of this attractive young woman, making us want to know everything about her past, present and future life.

 

One of the virtues of the novel is that it will make sure the reader does not stop reading until he/she reaches the final words: The End.

 

To sum up: Mark Patrick has raised the bar a bit more in his series of the White Tower. I am looking forward to read the next one in the series, and discover a bit more about his great personal universe.
