    4. ForetoldJoanne KershawForetold by Joanne Kershaw is the first book in the series, the Vanguard Legacy My first instinct was to categorize this tale of good versus evil and immediately, Harry Potter and The Vampire Academy came to mind.Yes, there are similarities in structure and plot with the two BUT Foretold holds its own in a world of stories about the war between the dark and light I was immediately drawn to the character of Elora Raised by her Vanguard mother who is overbearing in her protec [...]


    5. When I was given a copy of this book, I leapt at the chance to read and review it The cover is brilliant and striking Like it or not we DO judge books by their covers and it is good to see that this one hit the spot.I read my fair share of YA fiction and one thing I always want to see are portrayals of strong, independent women For me, the characters that tend to say with you longest are the ones I identify with most, whether they are wizards, athletes, or just regular people Having someone to r [...]


    6. A short disclaimer this book was NOT written for me I am a 31 year old male, comfortable in the company of Jason Bourne or Jack Reacher than Harry Potter or Bella Swan A story written in first person perspective and told through a female protagonist typically does little for me.That said, Foretold is an entertaining yarn threaded through a well developed paranormal setting Mrs Kershaw walks an exacting line in her coming of age tale about a young woman who must balance multiple facets of her li [...]

    9.

    10. Elora is a strong female lead in this school story She is a Vanguard recruit who had been raised and trained by her mother to be the very best She has the typical rag tag group of friends with varying abilities that help her along the way I couldn t quite understand the setting post apocalyptic maybe , especially the deal with the difference between the Vanguard and the Ignari.All in all, it was an enjoyable, well paced read with some interesting characters and the cliff hanger at the end made m [...]


    11. this book is written from the perspectuve of the main character, Elora, writing a letter to her child due to this it is told in the past which makes it a lot easier to read than it could have been as Flora knows what happened when she is writing the story The story itself is very well written and kept me captivated throughout and I loved the way it all tied together at the end.
