McCarthy has penned another great story. Legacy of Fear is a remarkably written story that shows off the storytelling talents of this author. It's one of those edge-of-your-seat page turners, making you not want to stop until the very last word. Emily is an interesting character who is stronger than first let on. I really thought she grew as a character, and that shows how people may have turning points in life that affect them forever, even changing them. The characters, all of them, were well developed, and the story just pulls the reader right in. I look forward to reading more by this author. This read is definitely recommended by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
