    A sophisticated read - poetic and magical!

    After reading through The End of the Kai for free (a complex/sophisticated/poetic epic fantasy read) and realizing that the Kai book was essentially a short-story that was a prologue to Book 1 Trinity I went ahead and read Trinity. I was happy to discover that this book was straight forward storytelling, and Kieko's story was absolutely amazing! There is something special in this story that Composto created.

    Great story and characters

    Been awhile since Ive come across a fantasy book with such a cool beginning - that being The End of the Kai portion. The writing style is almost poetic at times. Trinity is even better as it has a straight and interesting story line. Definitely kept me entertained and engaged. Could identify with the characters..

    MUST READ

    Not only does this book offer a beginning to what could become a new epic story worthy of endless numbers of fans, it exposes humanity at multiple levels. As readers, we can identify with most of the characters at one point or another, thus creating an opportunity to explore our own dark, rejected, and neglected facets coming to terms with ourselves as a whole unit. On a less personal note; it is a story that surprises the reader at every turn. Entertaining, different, NEW. Totally worth it! Can't wait for the story to continue. Hopefully we'll see a sequel soon.

    A real page turner

    Dark Legacy is a real page turner, reminiscent of "Dune" by Frank Herbert which is one of my all time science fiction favorites! The characters are well delineated, the culture is believable and the relationships are three dimensional . . . a rarity in a book that's full of adventure and suspense.

    A sci-fi first class read!

    My eldest son is an avid reader and read through this book in two days. He insisted that I read it because he knew that I was going to appreciate the deep Eastern philosophy that permeated the story (I was stationed at the Royal Navy's base in Hong Kong back in the late 70's and became immersed in Chinese philosophy). While on holiday in August I took my son's copy and read through the book in three days. I found it nearly impossible to put down, which my wife did not appreciate. The beginning of the story, entitled The End of the Kai, provided an intriguing introduction where the point of view flows wonderfully from that of a dove to an impoverished child to a black crow to characters in peril. This was the first time that I had ever come across such a unique writing technique. Although The End of the Kai was dense with characters, background, history, and detail I found it a fascinating portrait of an Atlantean civilization that was completely distinct. But as I was to discover The End of the Kai was really a prologue leading to the story of Kieko in Book I-Trinity. Kieko is an adolescent caught between two worlds: the Atlantean world of his deceased father and the Lemurian world he lives in with his mother. Atlantis is an oppressive empire eating away at the lands of the planet to soon reach the village of Ikishi in Lemuria where Kieko and his people reside. Kieko is treated as an outsider and only has a small group of people to look up to for guidance. He is eventually taken into his master's temple to learn not how to fight (although Ki sword is a part of his training), but how to heal, cook, plant, clean, write, and meditate as a means to cut down his anger and his ego. This is the part of the book that I found absolutely incredible. The detail of the book here is accurate in its portrayal of what living in a Buddhist temple is like - I know, I lived in one for a time. The Zen ethos here is wonderful and I found myself wanting to begin meditating again. This all aside the book is so rich with so many wonderful, three-dimensional characters that I simply could not put this book down as I raced toward an ending that really reflected the harsh realities of our world as one technologically sophisticated civilization invaded, conquered, and destroyed a weaker society. There is a lot being said in this book. Perhaps the author's own commentary on the Cold War . . . I don't know, but as one who lived through the Cold War I found a lot of parallels between this story and what I experienced in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and today when I think of how still First World nations continue to invade an occupy Third World ones. In the end, Dark Legacy is a first class read!
