Legacy of Power is the first installment of a new series by C.C. Bolick. Charlie’s mother is dying, but not of cancer as she thought. When their home is invaded by strange men intent on taking her mother away, Charlie’s world turns upside down. She learns that her mother is from another planet, and Earth’s radiation is killing her. As if that isn’t enough, Charlie’s mother can teleport and has a rare power to control bullets. It’s almost certain that Charlie will inherit her legacy, and with quick training, Charlie learns to teleport and shoot. She soon finds herself on the run, only to fall right into the hands of a government agency like the one her mother was always so careful to avoid. Charlie is then torn between following in her mother’s footsteps and doing what feels right to her.
C.C. Bolick has created a science fiction world that takes place right in front of our own eyes, combined with a little bit of fantasy, mystery, and suspense. A tiny hint of innocent romance is thrown in, and it all comes together to make the complex and fascinating tale of Legacy of Power. There is never a dull moment, and it was utterly impossible for me to predict anything that was going to happen. I absolutely loved the uniqueness of such a plot and how it always kept me guessing about what would happen next. I also loved how realistic Charlie is with her emotional outbursts and sometimes terrible decisions. The writing was flawless. I can’t wait to see what will happen in the second season of this series.
