Shannon's Thoughts:
Sweet Legacy is a fun, breezy conclusion to the Sweet Venom trilogy.  Sweet Legacy starts right where Sweet Shadows leaves off.  Our sisters are in Abyssos with their friends, desperately searching for the lost door and their mentors who were taken captive.  Action abounds and things happen a mile a minute.  I thought the romances for each girl was sweet and hopeful.  I especially love Grace and Milo.  The ending was dramatic and ends the series on a high note.

Overall, I enjoyed this series.  I thought the take on Greek Myth was interesting and I really enjoyed the way the sisters interacted with each other. Each had such a distinctive personality and I thought Tera Lynn Childs did a good job distinguishing between them.  This is quite a feat since each girl narrates. The series is a fun, easy read and packed with action. Fans of this series won't be disappointed with this ending and fans of mythological retellings should definitely check out the whole series.
