Review: A Legacy of Hunger (Druid’s Brooch Series Book 1)

4 Stars

By: Christy Nicholas

Legacy of Hunger is an awesome example of well researched and fully imagined historical fiction. While the characters are fully developed, totally believable and relateable, it is the epic backdrop of a realistic and well-drawn 19th century England and Ireland that catches the readers attention and does not let go. I was very impressed with Ms. Nicholas’ ability to so purposefully and wonderfully capture the era, the people, their motivations and their world.

I will say, though, the pacing was a little…slow. There were several times when I, the reader, wanted the story to gallop ahead and instead it trod heavily like a very tired horse at the end of a long day. HOWEVER, all-in-all, this is a good book with great characters and a lovely story.

"I'd like to think of myself as a blended mix of Southern charm and humor. What I really am is a hot mess of sin and sass. Jesus loves me either way."
