Book Shelf: AWOL: The Prequel to the Legacy Series (Legacy 0.5) by Ellery A. Kane

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! The author recommends reading AWOL after the other books in the trilogy but it can be enjoyed spoiler free anytime after Legacy.

AWOL is the prequel novella to the page-turning Legacy trilogy told from the perspective of Quin McAllister. Long before Lex Knightley crosses the Golden Gate Bridge into a deserted San Francisco, Quin makes a run for it, leaving the Guardian Force, General Ryker, and an army of medicated super soldiers behind him. But if there’s one thing Quin knows, it’s that you can’t outrun the past. And his past—foster kid, screw-up, delinquent, hopeless case, soldier, wanted man—is coming for him.

AWOL includes thirteen scenes which offer a glimpse into the heart of an anti-hero and sets the stage for the epic adventure that is the Legacy trilogy.

Review:

AWOL is the prequel novella to Ellery A. Kane’s Legacy series told entirely through the eyes of Quin McAllister and is an absolutely brilliant quick read that will make fans of the trilogy fall in love with Quin all over again. 

Long before he met Lex Knightly, Quin McAllister made the desperate choice to flee the Guardian Force and escape the clutches of General Ryker. Setting out on his own, Quin searches for the Resistance group he’s only heard rumours of in the hopes of finding a safe haven and escaping the past that continues to haunt him. 

Having recently finished the final book in the Legacy series, I couldn’t pass up the chance to follow Quin in AWOL and I love him even more after reading this novella—and I didn’t think that was possible! 

AWOL was an absolutely delightful novella. Quick and easy to read, AWOL really allowed you to get to know Quin like never before and  see how just confused and conflicted he is. It was fast paced, endlessly well written and also very cute. Ever wanted to know how Quin ended up with Artos as this faithful hound? Or what Quin thought when he first met Lex? Well, if you have, AWOL is the perfect chance to find out as Ellery A. Kane weaves some really endearing moments into Quins short tale. 

Told over a number of weeks and months, AWOL is an addictive look into the heart and mind of an anti-hero who you can’t help but adore. Perfect for long standing fans of the series or those looking to give it a go, AWOL is a must if you want to see Quin like never before!
