Robin Hood Foundation





Melissa donated copies of The Legacy to the Robin Hood Foundation for their annual fundraising breakfast.



The morning was a wonderful success and over R50 000 was raised for the foundation and the projects they run.


Their aim is to make a positive difference in the lives of the poorest of the poor by the distribution of donated items to the neediest members of society. They focus on committing random acts of kindness to poor groups of society, namely babies, poor grannies looking after orphaned grandchildren, orphan-headed households and “forgotten” grandparents in old age homes.

Mom With A Reading Problem’s Review of The Legion


Mom with a Reading Problem

The Legion - Melissa DelportOh my word I don’t even know where to start!?! Usually sequels don’t live up to their predecessors, this one does and if I’m honest blew my mind!!!!! It is action-packed with lots of surprises that left me emotionally shattered. Literally!!! It took me several days to get over this book, and that hasn’t happened since I read the book-that-shall-not-be-named (:::cough::: Allegiant).

A review of THE LEGION on Tentacle Books


Tentacle Books

Ladies and gentlemen, The Legion is a roller-coaster ride that’ll keep you wanting more. I can’t wait for the last book in the trilogy, and I’m hoping that it’ll be published early in 2015 instead of later, because let’s face it, I won’t be able to sleep soundly until I find out what happens next with Rebecca, Reed, Aiden (and I’m still holding my fingers crossed that Eric isn’t really dead).

I just want to ask Melissa Delport one question in regards to The Legion: ‘Why are you making us feel these things?!
