Finn Adams thought she knew what her life had in store for her; a mundane existence of day to day life. After meeting Eamon her whole world is flipped upside down. When her mother goes missing, Finn soon discovers that she is a witch and she is being hunted for her power.
Ripped from the only life she's ever known, Finn is transported across the country to Broadhaven, Maine to discover the secrets she never knew about herself, her heritage, and the tremendous power she's kept hidden for so long. Her loyalties are tested when she learns of her true parentage and discovers she is part of a prophecy, destined to awaken an ancient power that has been lost for centuries .
As she struggles to learn from her mother's past, she is faced with the ultimate struggle of good and evil, family or friends. She must learn who she can trust and find the power within herself to stop the prophecy from coming true. Three Boundless Stars
The beginning of Lost Legacy, Finn seems like an normal teenager. School sucks, not a lot of friends but is close to her mother: one day she notices a boy. One she doesn't recognize and it's a small town. Soon though, she learns the truth and that's when the craziness begins.
Towards the middle of the story though, I was a bit bored. I knew something major was bound to happen. But it felt like it was taking a bit long.
Finns father is he dangerous one and there's no telling where he is. The story was written well but I wanted more from it. It didn't keep me hanging on like I wanted it too.
Parts of the book are based in Ireland as well, which I really did think was interesting. Finn is a strong character, without really knowing who she is, she takes it head on. She's determined to do what needs to be done. Plus, she's powerful. Who can really stop her?
I'm giving this a three. Because it is a good story. It just didn't have the impact I wanted.
