Review: I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. I liked the book enough to buy it from Amazon after reading it. I had already bought the first two books and was waiting for book 3 to start reading them. When the opportunity to review Jade legacy came out, I read all three books back to back. You need to read the first two books before reading legacy. Each book builds upon the character development and worldbuilding of previous books. To me, these books remind me so much of the Godfather trilogy. Just as the Godfather trilogy showed us an expanding world over time, with the cast growing over generations, beginning, ending and living their lives, so too do the cast of the green bone saga. The worldbuilding increases with visits to more countries as the impact of previous actions, the lives and deaths and decisions in the earlier books continue to play out. Relationships grow and evolve as the consequence of earlier generations changes the world around them. As in the Godfather, the Codes of conduct, business practises, the old ways fade as a new reality arises. The ramifications of Jade wars ending emerge and develop. We see the fruits of seeds planted in the earlier books come to life. I usually prefer faster, action-packed books. The Green Bone Saga is slower, and I still enjoyed them all. I kept finding myself reading until the early morning hours by accident. Plotlines flowed around my mind as I drifted off to sleep, and I would wake, looking forwards to reading a bit more before work and in lunch. There are still action scenes and still long, quieter parts as the story develops. Legacy ties up the last two books saga perfectly. Fonda Lee has achieved something many find difficult, a satisfying end. Highly recommended.

    Description: TWO CRIME FAMILIES, ONE SOURCE OF POWER: JADE. Jade is the lifeblood of the city of Janloon - a stone that enhances a warrior's natural strength and speed. Jade is mined, traded, stolen and killed for, controlled by the ruthless No Peak and Mountain families. When a modern drug emerges that allows anyone - even foreigners - to wield jade, simmering tension between the two families erupts into open violence. The outcome of this clan war will determine the fate of all in the families, from their grandest patriarch to even the lowliest runner on the streets. Jade City is an epic tale of blood, family, honour, and of those who live and die by ancient laws in a changing world.

    Description: Inspired by J.M. Barrie's beloved children story Peter Pan and focusing on family, freedom and choice, These Deathless Shores is an exciting genderbent origin story told from the perspective Captain Hook, perfect for fans of Jade City by Fonda Lee. Jordan was once a Lost Boy, convinced she would never grow up. Now, she's twenty-two and exiled to the real world, still suffering withdrawal from the magic Dust of her childhood-and the drug she's using to medicate that withdrawal is wreaking its final, fatal effects. With nothing left to lose, Jordan returns to the Island and its stories-of pirates and war and the cruelty of youth-intent on facing Peter one last time, on her own terms. But Peter isn't the only malevolent force moving against her. As Jordan confronts the nature of Dust, first love, and the violent legacy carved into the land itself, she realizes the Island may have plans of its own.

    Description: Jade Shaw has lost control of her life. Pushed around by her warring family, and taken for granted by a boyfriend who's more interested in his brand than their relationship, she knows that somewhere along the path to being an adult she's lost her way. And she can't seem to find it again. The last place she expects to discover answers is on the floor outside her flat. But there it is: a script. Containing her name, and her boyfriend Adam's - and depicting another huge argument in which Jade fails to stand up for herself. The weird thing is: this argument hasn't happened yet. The row becomes reality. Jade tries and fails to find her voice. Then more scripts appear, predicting infuriating scenarios in which Jade's boss, mum, and bridezilla sister walk all over her. Whoever is leaving these scripts knows Jade inside-out. But who is writing them? How are they able to predict her future so accurately? And what can Jade do to re-write the script?.
