J.P. Barnett’s The Legacy of Rose Valley is the 6th book in the Lorestalker series. Finally graduating from college, Miriam and Macy were beginning a new chapter of their lives in Rose Valley. Due to their prior exploits, they have started to establish themselves as cryptozoologists, but who would have thought that some of those adventures would come back to haunt them once more? As Macy was preoccupied with setting up a significant milestone in her personal life, Miriam was starting to get caught up in a mystery threatening to hurt their townspeople. Join Macy and Miriam in The Legacy of Rose Valley as they embark on another life-threatening adventure that could be their last.

The Legacy of Rose Valley by J.P. Barnett was just as thrilling and action-packed as the rest of the series. If you like an action and suspense-filled thriller, this book is for you. Miriam's bravery and selflessness through the difficulties shone brighter than ever. I had grown very attached to Miriam's personality and loved watching her relationships with others. On the other hand, Macy was quite emotional and anxious as she got ready for her wedding. Who wouldn't be freaked out as a cryptozoologist with a maid of honor who couldn't possibly resist a mystery and lived in a town where a monster was on the loose? Nevertheless, Macy deserves kudos for how she faced the challenges ahead. She did the best she could with what was given to her, and other people in her circumstances wouldn’t do as well as her. I thoroughly enjoyed the final book of such an incredible collection of adventure, mystery, and action, so I was both happy and sad that this was the last book for this series. The Lorestalker series has been a memorable read, and the sixth book is, undoubtedly, my favorite! I am looking forward to more of J.P. Barnett’s work.
