Becca Michelle Ritchie (Author). So, I started reading this series because I just love Becca (and Krista) Ritchie! I'm so addicted to their Addicted series that it's not even funny

Becca Michelle Ritchie (Author). Book 1 of 2 in the Wynter Chelsea Series. So, I started reading this series because I just love Becca (and Krista) Ritchie! I'm so addicted to their Addicted series that it's not even funny. Now, I have to admit that the beginning of this book was really slow for me. The story didn't pick up until about halfway through the book. I think the reason that it was slow is because this is more of an introduction to the Wynters and Chelseas and their legacy. We learn about who they are and what they do.

The Legacy absolutely captivated me and made me a huge fan of the Wynter Chelsea books. I absolutely could not wait until I got to its sequel, though at the same time I was a little hesitant because sometimes series have an amazing first book and the others are just so-so. I am happy to tell you all that this is most definitely not the case with The Sublimity.

So, I started reading this series because I just love Becca (and Krista) Ritchie! I'm so addicted to their Addicted series that it's not even funny.

Now, I have to admit that the beginning of this book was really slow for me. The story didn't pick up until about halfway through the book. I think the reason that it was slow is because this is more of an introduction to the Wynters and Chelseas and their legacy. We learn about who they are and what they do. If you've ever seen the TV show "Supernatural," you will probably like this book. There's a "Supernatural" feel to it from the fact that the Wynters and Chelseas are hunters of the supernatural, to the events that unfold, and right down to the car that they drove (which is referenced a lot, so you can't miss it ;)). At around 48% is when the story started getting more interesting. At that point, I found it harder and harder to put the book down. This world that the author created is just so interesting! At age 14, Becca Ritchie had a really creative mind! The story is so complex and I was truly invested in the characters. The story is told in Amanda's point of view. I can relate to her for the most part, but some of her actions and a lot of her decisions really got on my nerves. At times I thought she was being very unreasonable and I just wanted to shake some sense into her. Jack, Amanda's older brother and leader of their group of 4, was an insufferable prick most of the time. He was so controlling that I could hardly stand him! Dustin, Jack's friend and the eldest of the Wynter children, seemed to be a peacemaker. Trevor, well I just loved Trevor. He was so lighthearted, amusing, and he always found humor in everything.

I loved how this story made me think deeply about life, fate, and whether or not we really have any control over our destiny.

"But our choices outline our fate. If I made another choice, then it could have changed the past."

But I have to add that the fight scenes were lacking in the action department. There just wasn't enough thrill and excitement in there for me and I thought the creatures were killed way too easily. Not once did I feel any anxiety or fear for the Wynters or Chelseas lives. It was like nothing was a challenge to them. I really hope that this isn't the case in the second book, The Sublimity.

I'm a big sucker for romance so I couldn't help but hope that something would bloom between Amanda and Dustin. After finishing this book, I just had to jump into the next book right away! I couldn't prolong the wait and had to find out what was going to happen next.

Knowing that Becca wrote this when she was only 14 years old, my awe for her talent grew exponentially. I am truly amazed!

The Chelseas and the Wynters are the last line of defense between humans and the paranormal creatures that roam the world seeking to overrun it. From the beginning of time, there have always been Wynters and Chelseas fighting against the evil forces in the world. But something is different in this generation. For the first time, a girl has been born to the Chelsea family. Amanda Chelsea. And this changes the game for everyone.

Amanda may be a Chelsea, but she's not allowed to be part of the legacy, the one that says the Wynters and the Chelseas fight against demons and half demons and rid the world of their presence. Jack, Amanda's brother, and the oldest of all of them, and Dustin and Trevor Wynter all are sworn to protect Amanda and keep her from fighting. So as the boys grow up learning about the different types of demons and how to kill them, Amanda is made to stay away from all of it.

Then to compound things, this generation of Wynters and Chelseas are given "gifts". Jack Chelsea can conjure anything from a gun to money. Amanda is an empath and with the volatile emotions of her brother, is left in pain more than protected by him. Dustin is telepathic and it's almost as hard on him as being an empath is to Amanda. For this reason, the two of them grow close. And Trevor, the youngest is precognitive and a bit of comic relief.

One night, Amanda breaks the rules and goes into the woods after the guys and ends up having to defend herself against a demon. She is forced to fight. When the guys catch up with her and find out, the tension and anger is palpable. The next day, their parents disappear.

The rest of the novel is in pursuit of finding their parents. It seems directly linked to that night. The guys still won't let Amanda hunt, yet she is right there beside them fighting, saving their butts one time but they never come right out and admit that she's fighting. So many secrets are kept.

Dustin and Amanda obviously have feelings for each other and it was a little tedious reading the back and forth. Amanda seemed to be a bit oblivious even to her own feelings to Dustin.
Her brother wasn't happy about it as if it was any of his business. But they all make Amanda's personal life their business, whether it's appropriate or not.

Amanda for her part whines a bit about not being part of the legacy and how that's all she wants. But what she really wants is her parents' approval and love. Apparently they aren't real forthcoming with their feelings, but as an empath, she should have been able to feel what they felt about her.

The story line was incredible. Totally unsuspecting, it snuck up on me at the end and everything made sense. The last part of the novel was just numbing to read and realize what happened.

I truly enjoyed this novel. The writing was interesting and the characters were believable. I felt Dustin and Amanda were the most developed of the characters. Jack was always angry and Trevor was always wisecracking. Other than that, we didn't get to see into their minds very much. But I enjoyed getting to know Amanda and Dustin so well and I hope in the next book that their relationship actually develops. I'm definitely looking forward to reading The Sublimity.

This is a great book for anyone that loves YA paranormal.
