Ty Gephardt Reviews “Legacy”

Taking the 50-Word Review Challenge!

The book: Legacy
The author: James H. Schmitz
The reviewer: Ty Gephardt
Available from: Amazon

A would be pulp fiction story with a strong female lead that falls down in almost every scene. Following the standard tropes of pulp SF, this wild tale of mystery and intrigue revolves around Plasmoids, a lumpy, inert, biomachine of many parts. Unfortunately, Schmitz fails to adequately describe this and almost everything else to help realize what would be a fascinating tale. The narrative relies heavily on flashbacks for scenes readers have read. Regrettably, this extends to the climatic final act taking the form of “you know Bob, that fight a few months ago. . .” Pass on this book!
