Synopsis

Book I - Trinity of the Dark Legacy Cycle details the violent end of the Kai Order - an ancient, spiritual guild of warrior guardians and priestesses who have sworn their lives to protect the Oracle Queen of Atlantis - at the hands of Maniok, the being referred to as the "Great Evil" in the age-old Song of the Oracle King.

It is a chronicle of Arkan, the last Kai guardian, and his desperate attempt to save the life of his priestess who carries his unborn son, and his escape from Atlantis.

It is the story of Kieko, a lonely Lemurian boy of mixed blood who seeks to know more about his absent father's mysterious Atlantean past. Constantly bullied by Aiko, he eventually takes refuge with the village priest in the Kadek Temple where he studies medicinal and culinary arts, calligraphy, and ultimately, the art of Ki sword. Under the tutelage of the priest he comes to know the grim truth about his father, and is prepared to face the horrific assault of the armies of the Atlantean Empire upon his humble world.

And this is just the beginning . . .

Dark Legacy
Average rating
5 / 5
Dark Legacy is beautifully written.
April 19th, 2015
Dark Legacy is a beautifully written but haunting tale of the struggles of an adolescent outsider who confronts both his inner and outer demons through the guidance of his Ki sword master as an oppressive, technologically advanced Atlantean civilization looms on the horizon. This is a character driven book that I would recommend to fans of any genre.

A real page turner
March 16th, 2015
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.

MUST READ
March 14th, 2015
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.

Great story and characters
February 7th, 2015
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..

A sophisticated read - poetic and magical!
December 19th, 2014
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.
