{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Legacy of the Mind - By H.R. Moore


Author: H.R. Moore
Release Date: 1/2/2014
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N
Anita has never been ordinary, she’s stuck out like a sore thumb her entire life; not only can she see the energy of others, a rare skill, but she’s won every Body challenge she’s ever entered. So when the powerful, good looking Descendants, Marcus and Alexander, mysteriously arrive in Empire, her difference attracts and keeps their attention.

Once in Empire, the sudden death of ruling Body Descendant, Christiana, sets in motion a number of events; a quest for the treacherous Austin to find the girl Christiana had been looking for; a challenge where Anita stands out more vibrantly than ever before; a perilous dip in the world’s energy; and a dangerous belief among the people that they will never truly be free. Powerful factions soon form within the ruling elite and when a trusted friend and mentor reaches out to ask for Anita’s help, she has to make a choice; help her friend and betray the one she loves, or do nothing and watch the people starve.


Every ounce of my being is recovering from an emotional book hangover....you know when you mind still wonders for days at end trying to articulate the words that best sums up what you've just experienced?? That feeling when you write your review, then realize words cannot adaquitely describe this enchanting book!

Well, I am now going to do my best at enticing you all into reading this book!

Anita is a badass, she trains hard, fights harder, and takes a lot of crap. Her entire world is based around her ability to kickass, so when someone comes specifically for her I wasn't prepared for the twists and turns this plot took. You know, there is something to say about an author who can pull metaphoric rabbits out of a literary hat. I'm telling you the writing in Legacy of the Mind was that good!  

My only qualm is that I hadn't read this book when it first came out in 2014.....but then I realized that the rest of the trilogy was already out, I jumped for joy!! Now I am binge reading the rest of the trilogy.....oh and it's heaven!

Make sure you check out Legacy of the Mind on Amazon this week, it's FREE!!



About the Author

Harriet was born in Germany in 1987, the family returning to the UK, to Dorset shortly afterwards. She lived there until she was 5, her grandfather teaching her the basics of cheating at cards and swindling chocolate, her mother starting to instil a (some would argue) unhealthy relationship with cake, and the neighbours demonstrating that some people don’t understand cherry blossom is there to be picked, mixed with mint and water and sold as perfume.
Then there was Scotland; stealthy guinea pig breeding, riding horses, advanced cards, more cake, then to Devon and school in Exeter. She loved maths in the early years, but by the time she got to A Level, Sociology was her favourite subject, opening her eyes to things she’d never before considered, namely, nobody is really right, nobody is really normal and primary socialisation has a lot to answer for.

At the age of about 12, Harriet started rowing for Exeter Rowing Club. This quickly took over her life and before too long she was clad in lycra, training 6 days a week and competing at events around the country.

After finishing her A Levels, Harriet went to university in St Andrews, studying Philosophy for two years, then switching to Management. She was particularly interested in the ‘people’ elements of her course and especially the areas concerning how people create and react to change. After four very civilised years by the sea, she ventured to London, to foray into the strange world of insurance (surprisingly, more interesting than you might think), where she currently works as a Project Manager.

Harriet has recently moved to Hertfordshire with her husband Chris and baby Atia. When she isn’t doing DIY, writing, editing, eating, taking photos, or imagining how much better life would be with the addition of a springer spaniel, she occasionally finds the time to make hats.
