Cayla Kluver at the age of 14 and a sophomore in high school sat down one day to write a tale. It became a tale of romance and adventure, and after a long battle and a multitude of awards, Cayla's dream came true! Her vision can now be our's through Legacy!!
Legacy is the first book in the title trilogy. We meet Alera, princess of Hytanica. Her father, the King, hopes her to marry Steldor, a man who cannot get enough of himself (and often reminds me of Disney's Gaston!). Alera confides in her sister Miranna that love for Steldor is impossible. Then, Narian appears, the mysterious young man from the despised Cokyri, bringing many changes . . . to Alera and to the kingdom. Add London, the bodyguard with a secretive past; Cannan, the father of Steldor that I believe has more on his mind than he is sharing; Temerson, the true quiet gentleman (that should be a model for Steldor!); and so many more.
I loved the story . . . the beautiful names of the characters and the obvious thought that went into their development . . . the perfect combination of adventure and suspense, with a side of romance . . . the tension and the harmony. I just have one complaint . . . why the cliffhanger ending and no date in sight for book 2, Allegiance?!?!

I'm impressed with Cayla's accomplishments!! Afterall, do you remember what you were doing at the age of 14?
