Aug 26, 2016Dark Legacy is a sweeping blend of epic fantasy and science fiction written in a 'high fantasy' style. It begins with the destruction of the Kai Order, and the society they are tasked to defend, by the evil Maniok and his devastating armies. The mix of magic and technology by the author is compelling and effective as he describes in chilling detail the final stand of the Atlantean forces against their ambitious and ruthless foes. In a faraway land, the son of the last Kai guardian is growing to manhood among a people who despise and abuse him because of his mixed-blood heritage. Here, the tale turns into a coming of age story as Kieko embraces the way of a Ki warrior and the mentorship of a warrior priest. He must learn to accept his past and seize control of his future, a destiny that has the potential for darkness and evil should Kieko fail to grasp the knowledge that his Shinsei attempts to impart.

Aug 26, 2016Dark Legacy is a real page turner, reminiscent of "Dune" by Frank Herbert which is one of my all time science fiction favorites! The characters are well delineated, the culture is believable and the relationships are three dimensional . . . a rarity in a book that's full of adventure and suspense.
Aug 26, 2016Dark Legacy: Trinity is the the first foray into the world of SF by Domenico Composto. To describe the book with a single word: staggering. Detailing the clash of two civilizations, one technogenic and the other spiritual, this book is told from the perspective of a child thrust into the rural world of Lemuria, grappling with his Atlantean past. The book details the coming of age of Kieko (the child), as the two nations clash. The characters are believable, the setting is seamlessly integrating fantasy with reality, but the most compelling factor of the book is the atmosphere: at times frustrating, foreboding or alternately light and full of hope. At times, the book is nigh on impossible to put down. A "must read."
