Honestly I can not finish this book. It is an epic tale of forbidden love, loss, responsibilities, war, dark mysterious legends and two kingdoms so different from each other!
The good guys were under the impression that because the Cokyrian invading force was in Kkuver, their capital would be unguarded. Blah, blah, blah, basically. Steldor is amazing in Allegiance, being a smart strategist, doting husband and controlling jerk all at once.
The horrible, horrible adverbs.
Review: Legacy by Cayla Kluver — Working for The Mandorid
And this book produced the same reaction. To view it, click here. Alera finds the one person who can tell her what she needs to know, Narian, and he’s a Cokyrian. The story is told from cqyla perspective of Alera a Hytanica princess.
Everything about him is YUCK. Cayla Kluver has intricately crafted an elaborate story with an unexpected romance of doomed proportions, and I cannot remember encountering a more fascinating character who completely changes my initial perceptions of them since something blue. To be truthful, end of character. Dw heart wants what the heart wants, and I was impressed with how she kept to her convictions and became stronger because of them.
So, why 3 stars?
The book is “ok” but overall it just didn’t seem to stand out to me like Legacu Eragon series did. Granted, there is still the pretty political dance of back-stabbing, but as the Cokyrians start to show their true colors, Alera and her kingdom are left with no choice but to defend themselves.
Has there ever been such a weak, selfish, simpering, and altogether idiotic woman who was actually queen of anything? Feb 05, Maraki M. Someone get George R. The only semi-likeable character in the entire book is London, Alera’s bodyguard who was once a prisoner of the Cokyrians — and I think I only liked him because he seemed like a bit of an ass, but a slightly likable ass with honor and a brain aka the only character in the book that seemed to possess an ounce of intelligence. The characters, too, were flat; you had the jolly but strict father King, the air-headed younger sister, the mothering Queen who doesn’t do anything else, the protective father-figure bodyguard and, of course, the headstrong princess who wants more in life than to be the bearer of the kingdom’s next heir.
Allegiance (Legacy, #2) by Cayla Kluver
The writing is pretty much exactly the same as the first book. Then I made my bed by folding my quilt, and squaring the corners. Overall, it’s a well-written book with a very interesting and touching story. Why in the world would any king step down as soon as his daughter married when there’s a war brewing?
Kluver’s writing has the kind of archaic grace up there with Christopher Paolini, I wasn’t as impressed this time around versus with klver first book. I don’t want to say a lot First let me just say wow.
A smoking hovel where she’ll be raped, where the man she loved is probably dead, and, oh yeah, her country is GONE? Kluver kluveer able to take characters and make them people.
Kegacy is initially captured by the palace guards as a spy from an enemy kingdom, but is eventually discovered to be the son of a noble family that was long since thought to be dead. Bound to a ma Only I saw Narian for who he truly was: The story slows by and I just desperately wanted to read more about their forbidden love. That said, she’s probably more heavy handed than necessary to get her point across, yes, we know she’s trying to break into a male dominated world even though she’s queen now and be the one making the life and death decisions for her kingdom, and sometimes it makes her look meaner for it, but she has her moments where she makes the hard choices that makes her actions understandable, though in a few places I think the pressures do get to her.
By that, I mean whine and complain to the reader or her guard who can do nothing about it. That said though, this book was so much more than the cover.

Looking at the cover alone you are drawn into the story. She finds herself unable to love him and equally unable to forget Narian, the one she truly loves.
Add in the fact that Alera’s kingdom is on the brink of war and you’re really screwed. I loved Alera, she was the perfect 17 year old, she was strong, witty, knew what she wanted but wasn’t sure how to get it.
Her father is king and she shows him the respect he deserves, even when she doesn’t want too. I also haven’t read anything similar to this to date kudos to the author!
When Steldor manages to steal the show away from Alera, I feel like that has to mean something has gone curiously off-center.
