I wish I could give these books 100 Stars...
I absolutely love the style of A.D. Starling. I found myself totally absorbed in these stories and found it nearly impossible to stop reading and had to pick it up again the first chances I got. Once I finished "Warrior" I had to start on "Empire" and again was captivated. Although "Legacy" was the next logical book I read "Origins" instead which takes you back to when it all began and this gave me a much better understanding of the entire premise and where all these immortals came from. This made "Legacy" more meaningful for me.
I love the entire immortal premise of the books and have read all the rest of the series as well as all the short stories and find that every book and their characters are almost magical in their almost superhuman strengths and gifts.
These stories would make a fantastic series of movies along the lines of the X-MEN. Be sure to read all of the other books as well and when you get to the final chapter of the last book you will have a huge surprise.
Enjoy! I have!
