    3.5 5 Received via Member Giveaways at LibraryThing As with the much shorter prequel, I enjoyed the premise, the characters, and the story that introduces the Balancers in a in depth manner than the prequel.Having said that, I do share the opinion with another reviewer that I would have liked the book better if it had been told from James point of view outright rather than simply put forth in the form of a journal.Also, like with the prequel, I found the malapropisms and two misspellings at one point focussed had 3 s and Lyons had its s missing Lyon as was used in the book is the chief herald of Scotland as opposed to the city in France to be distracting So too was the character diction, especially James.First, the diction Some language shift can be accounted for during the years that James has lived, and this is a work of fiction, but James is a product of the 17th century and this should be reflected to a point in at least some of his speech patterns Maybe I am being a bit of a nitpick, but there it is.Now, for the malapropisms Again, I may be a bit of a nitpick about this, but I find it a little irritating to be distracted by words that may SOUND as if they belong in the sentence but are not necessarily the proper ...

    In Legacy Book One of the Balancer Chronicles, Katrina Blake has just inherited her grandmother s estate When she discovers a journal written by an ancestor, her life will be changed forever and the forever part is literal.I must say that this was one of the most original stories I have read in a long time and I m not sure how to categorize it paranormal romance , urban fantasy , a bit of both The concept of the balancers, immortal beings whose purpose is to keep other supernatural entities in check was very interesting However, at times it felt like there was too much in the story extraterrestrials, werewolves, vampires, spirit walkers they re all there As well, and this is just my personal taste, I don t really care for romance stories I know, we women are all supposed to want lots of romance in books but I really don t Don t get me wrong though, I did actually enjoy this book It was well written and, alth...

    Legacy Book One of the Balancer Chronicles is an fascinating book I have not been a fan of supernatural novels dealing with vampires and witches but Chris Adonn has turned me onto his Balancer novels I look forward to the follow up volumes in this series The characters are well developed and one becomes emotionally involved with and grow to love each of the characters I was surprised at how involved I became in the book and found it extremely difficult to put down once I started reading it.I urge anyone to read this book and find out for themselves the role that the Balancers play in keeping the world in sync and everything running smoothly Of course what they do takes a toll on them, but it is in their nature to continue the work that has been set forth for them I think everyone will connect with James and his friendship with Wolf This is James s...

    Legacy Book One of the Balancer by chris adonn 4 STARSThis is mostly told in a book about James life through the decades to Kat his future relative James tells her a lot about different spieces of the supernatural world that he comes into contact with.The only real problem I had with the book it was too long for me I was ready for this book to be done with a lot sooner Plus I ended up crying in a few places James explains his normal life than to go on as he discovers that he is a Balancer and the different powers he has What he learns to do and how he feels about certain people in his life.Wolf is his friend and who teaches him a lot about being a balancer and how the two of them are different from other ones like themselves.Another good friend is a vampire Bas.He also tells about his two different familys and what happens to them.Because James lives long ...

    Legacy Book One of the Balancer Chronicles was an engaging story, cataloguing the life of James William Youngman in a journal to one of his heirs Katrina, as the remaining heir to the Black Rose Estate she is requested to return to the house and read a missive left to her, yet she has no will to remain at the home That is until she begins reading the account of her great ancestor and his supernatural abilities.This story captured my interest right from the beginning I enjoyed the first installment immensely but have one complaint where is the next installment I want it now This beginning to the Balancer Chronicles is really just that a beginning There were many fantastic parts to the story but no...

    This book is a great rainy day read, very enjoyable The plot is interesting and leaves the reader wanting the characters are mysterious, yet very honest The writing style of the author is good, nothing undesirable there The reader will enjoy the subtlety of the author in explaining delicate scenarios and their resultant affect on the characters feelings The connection between the past and the present is strong in this novel, the reader will enjoy two stories that of the main character and her male counterpart, James The reader will be happy throughout James forays into love and romance and feel unhappy along with him as his life inevitable leads to sorrow The reader will hold on to residual anger at Kat s grandmother for...

    I would like to start this review by saying that reading a book about someone reading a book can be rather boring Now that being said, it works in this book Now there are some parts that are hard to follow Talking about Energy, Proteons, Angels, Lions, Apes, etc I m not sure that readers require that much background to understand the story, but I do hope that rea...

    I liked the characters and plot The Balancers are a very interesting idea, magical immortal humans set to protect other humans and the balance between the supernatural and natural.I found myself really liking most of the characters The way the two main characters interacted was interesting and something I hadn t run across before Unfortunately there was quite a cliff hanger at the end of the book, I gue...
