The Legacy

The Legacy - Melissa Delport


One man obsessed with power.

One woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him.

One war that changed the world.



World War Three lasted twelve days. Twelve days was all it took for mankind to devastate the planet and almost eradicate the human race. No victor emerged from the ashes and billions lost their lives.

We survivors lived through the bleakest of winters. A primal existence became the new order, and the little that remained of our humanity hung in the balance. 

Then one man stood up and changed the world. I believed, as did everyone else, that he was the hero of our time, the man who had saved us from our own demise. His name is Eric Dane and he is the President of the New United States of America.  

He is also my husband, and my greatest enemy.

I grew up oblivious to the truth, until my father found me when I was nineteen years old. He told me about the many horrifying facts that our new leader kept hidden from us. And he told me that beyond the borders the Resistance grew and fought for freedom from the oppression that Eric Dane had imposed on us.

My name is Rebecca Davis. I am twenty-six years old, and in me the Resistance has found the ultimate weapon. 

A narrative of good and evil, love and passion, right and wrong – and at the centre of the story a strong woman who is prepared to sacrifice everything for the cause she believes in.

The Legacy is an action-packed, adrenalin-inducing thrill ride which will leave you riveted long after you have turned the last page.

Melissa Delport has blown me away with her first book, The Legacy. Being an avid reader, I generally stick to authors and genre that I know. I took a chance on this newcomer and I am so glad that I did! The Legacy was an action packed booked, with twists and turns in all the right places. Melissa’s ability to one moment hold the reader in absolute suspense, and the next to be throwing out an action packed scene, had me not being able to put the book down and skipping lines in my excitement to see what would happen next! Congratulations, and welcome to my bookshelf alongside Bryce Courtney, Jilly Cooper, Josephine Cox and the gang.

5.0 out of 5 stars  EXCITING, September 11, 2013 by  Michelle

Such an exciting book, full of action, intrigue, drama and, of course, love. I found myself reading faster and faster in time with the action. The author has rounded out each character so that we get to know them and their personalities. There are unexpected twists and turns that kept me reading well into the early hours of the morning. It has been a pleasure to read a book where the author has not relied on shock tactics (either language or sex)to keep one’s attention. I cannot wait for the next book to come out as the ending was one big question mark that I need answered (sooner than later).

An awesome story, filled with love and self sacrifice for the greater good of the human race. One mans greed for power which is his ultimate downfall, and one womans’ sacrifice of the person she truly loves and her child so that freedom and equality can be enjoyed by all the citizens of the post war world. A story of how honesty and love will always conquer when you do the right thing, and stand up for what you believe no matter the consequences.
