So, this is the end of the Declaration series as it currently stands and I found The Legacy to be a moving and befitting ending to a series that has kept me on my toes, questioned philosophical and ethical matters and delivered them in Gemma Malley s beautiful writing.However, it has to be said that the first three quarters of the novel would have given it three stars I did enjoy the story and the development of Jude but it didn t have the panic and urgency that the other two books did, I found [...]

The Legacy brengt een zeer slimme en spannende ontknoping voor The Declarationtrilogie van Gemma Malley Zowel de geschetste toekomst als het plot zitten vol details en onverwachte twists, waardoor het verhaal spannend doch realistisch is De personages zijn levensecht, maar af en toe een beetje vermoeiend in hun ouderwetse opvattingen Met uitzonderingen van de epiloog die me stiekem een beetje droevig achterliet vond ik dit een zeer sterk en onverwacht einde Een heerlijk vlot geschreven trilogie [...]
THE LEGACY est une lecture hyper prenante J ai ador ce troisi me volet Les h ros sont toujours aussi attachants, les rebondissements s entrechoquent sans arr t, les enjeux sont de plus en plus lev s Bref, tout est mis en place pour nous garder en haleine et nous captiver de la premi re la derni re page.L ambiance est ULTRA saisissante On veut toujours en savoir plus, recevoir plus d explications, tre immerg s un peu plus dans ce monde utopique en apparence et pourtant destructeur et chaotique On [...]
More like 3.5 but it was a good ending to what s been an enjoyable trilogy.
I finished reading this book and The Resistance in two days The concept a super virus emerging that none of the Legals immune system can handle was such an interesting premis, not to mention a logical one The lengths that Pincet Pharma goes to cover up the drugs failings was also interesting and a plot twist I found believable The characters though they are teenagers are so petulant, moody and emotional Jude in the corner brooding away at his computer and mooning inexplicably over Shelia, Peter [...]
This series blew me away when I first read it The entire concept was awesome The world seems ideal no one dies as drugs have been developed meaning that no one gets old, or ill and can live forever As a price for eternal life people are no longer allowed to have children unless they opt out of the drugs The first two books look in depth at this world and what happens to those children who are born illegally The are awesome if you haven t had a chance to read them do so.This book starts off with [...]
Ce livre est le troisi me tome d une trilogie que j aime beaucoup.Dans ce roman, il n y a pas un seul personnage central comme dans les deux tomes pr c dents savoir Anna et Peter Ici, ces deux personnages sont bien sur pr sents, mais il y a aussi d autres points de vue comme Jude, le demi fr re de Peter et Richard, le PDG de Pincent Pharma, la firme qui fabrique les pilules de Long vit.Le fait d alterner plusieurs points de vue nous permet d avoir plusieurs r v lations sur la long vit On compren [...]
This is the third and sadly the last book in Gemma Malley s Declaration trilogy.I loved this book as much as loved the previous two books in this series, in my opinion Gemma Malley is a brilliant author She can make her characters come to life on the pages, and make the reader feel exactly what the characters feel.This book follows on from where we left Peter and Anna in The Resistance They are now hidden away with their small family, working and living off the land The first part of the book is [...]
I didn t read the second book of this trilogy but that really didn t affect this because the author spends a lot of time in the beginning recapping both books I usually like dystopian worlds where society is strictly controlled, with the small band of brothers resistance group fighting the control and trying to get the world back to a realistic vision of humanity But not this one.This is definitely a plot driven book, with pretty wooden and stereotypical characters No one s very complex The dia [...]
the epilog was brilliant in general i am not a fan of them but this one was perfect i thought the mention of the flower on the ring being made of all sciecne numbers and symbols was soAHHH it was so well thought through
This book kept me entertained the whole way through with non stop action, suspense, and included the perfect ending.
Loved this I thought Houghton great sense of how the world has changed but I Would have loved to know about when and why I d like to be able to follow the rise of longevity the start of the authorities, why, if pincent pharma is the most secured building IN THE WHOLE WORLD, is Jude so able to sneak in and out like a hole in the fence in your garden There are a lot of holes and non explanations for things but it s a great story Chapter 19 is beautiful and the only part that made me cry, if you r [...]
I do recommend this book because it s a great end to a series It sucks in the audience by making the book hard to put down Constant cliffhangers and jump scares are just few of the many things that make you want to read .The antagonist Richard is trying to play the underground and give them the role of being attackers The drug that is supposed to bring life for eternity is starting not to work and they have no answer Also, if you think harder the book makes you question the theories of everlasti [...]
For of my reviews go to rachelefisherTitle The LegacyAuthor Gemma MalleyRating 4 Stars Summary When a Pincent Pharmaceutical van is ambushed by the rebel group known as the Underground, its contents come as a huge surprise not drugs, but corpses in a horrible state It appears that the pharmaceutical company s top drug, Longevity which is supposed to eradicate disease and ensure eternal life isn t living up to its promises Now a virus is sweeping the country, killing hundreds in its wake, and Lo [...]
To be fair, I thought this was the better book of the Trilogy The story finally took on a bit of pace and while many trilogies often peter out by the end, this book, on the contrary got stronger and was wrapped up aptly.I didn t however find the AF twist at all credible and I would have preferred a dramatic visual end to Richard Pincent I also found the explanation of the New World set up, pretty weak and disappointing, meaning there was so much this could have come to but the author went for [...]
Esto fue sinceramente una excelente historia LO JURO OHH DIOS MIO CASI ME DA UN MINI INFARTOOOO ok, empezare por el principioBien, todos tienen ya su vida, dos a os despu s de que inicio La Declaraci n libro , Anna con su beb Molly, con su hermanito Ben, de tres a os y Peter, juntos en Escocia, alejados de la Sociedad Jude en el Subterr neo con Sheila LO ADMITO SIEMPRE TE ODIE, SIEMPRE LO HICE, DESDE EL PRIMER LIBRO Y LUEGO CUANDO ME DI CUENTA QUE NUNCA CAMBIAR AS Y QUE CRE QUE TU HAB AS MANDADO [...]
What a horrible series Can t believe this stuff actually gets published I should have stopped at book 2 Minus one halfway decent plot twist at the end, this book has nothing going for it The characters are poorly written, the prose is amateurish, and the story line is cliched and uninteresting And I am actually being nice here
Ik neem mijn woorden terug Dit is niet zo n trilogie als al de andere Het derde boek heeft zeker een goede invloed op de hele serie en is niet zo n stom omdat het verhaal verder moet gaan verhaal Dit boek heeft me echt aan het denken gezet, en daar hou ik wel van
Ceux qui ont peur de la mort sont ceux qui n ont pas v cu Le livre a intrigu mes pens es tout au long de la lecture, bien que j ai r ussi deviner le final, dont je l attendais plus spectaculaire Toutefois, c tait une aventure plaisante dans un monde futuriste.
This was a weird series I m glad it found a way to have a semi resolution I think there were still many flaws and unresolved parts.
Way better than Hunger Games I honestly think this should be a part of the High School English dystopian unit.
really liked it and the twist at the end.
Okay so normally people post In My Mailbox on a Sunday but well I finished this one this morning so too bad Bad timing I guess but oh well.This is the last one in the amazing dystopian trilogy of The Declaration series involving a future Earth without disease and death Bit different, right Of course, I might have spoilers in here for those that haven t read the last two books soif you haven t, go to my review on the first book, The Declaration or the second, The Resistance Synopsis Longevity, th [...]
This is going to be of a review of the complete trilogy than of this instalment.I ve bought and read the whole trilogy, and I certainly admire Malley s world building and the initial concept of this trilogy the idea of people attaining eternal life through Longevity drugs, the illegal isation of children, and the problems that causes to the surplus population The novels appear to be very well researched in the science and philosophy departments, but unfortunately, Malley s writing just doesn t [...]
Crossposted at Double Trouble Book ReviewsAs I read this book, I realized something It s only the male characters who seem to have a mind for saving everything Both Sheila and Anna contributed to the story in a way that portrayed them as weak although Sheila was pretty cunning when she tricked Jude into letting her use his computer Anna just seemed like a petulant, too young mother who went into a frenzy when her child ren was threatened Sheila didn t think of the big picture, and wanted only to [...]
And so, I ve come to the last in the Declaration trilogy The Resistance, an end I am sad to see I enjoyed this book so much I read it from start to finish in just over six hours.Whilst I found it to be a good book and overall, a good finish to a spectacular series, I also found it to be the weaker book of the trilogy I couldn t overcome the sense that Malley had rushed this book in her excitement to get it published, for there are some scenes that weren t described very well at all, and I also n [...]
The Legacy is a truly thrilling conclusion to The Declaration series, which I have enjoyed from the start The book begins with a flashback that explains how longevity was discovered, and then reverts back to the present, where we find out how Jude, Sheila, Peter and Anna have been coping since the last book Peter and Anna and have been hiding out in the Scottish countryside while the Underground have been monitoring Pincent Pharma But recently, things have been changing People have been taken aw [...]
Original review at inkscratchersI read the first book in this series a couple of years ago and so until I started The Legacy I actually couldn t remember much about them To me, The Declaration was the first dystopian book I ever read though I never knew what the genre was called back then and so holds a special place in my heart It was because of that that was both really happy and a little worried when I received this book in the post, feeling scared that I may be let down, after all, I have hi [...]
