The latest book in the Gift Legacy leaves home today. It’s interesting how each book crosses that threshold with a personality. The first one, Awakening, was shy and tentative; Revelation, the second one, sprinted through the gate like a colt on new legs; the third book, Redemption, pawed the ground then charged off; number four, Penance, crept out in the middle of the night. Betrayal swaggers. It’s got attitude.
Chronologically speaking, Betrayal isn’t the “next” book in the Gift Legacy series. It’s more like book 1.5. It’s Awakening Redux—this time told in Jackson Delaney’s voice. This is his story. Jackson was Emelynn Taylor’s love interest in Awakening. He was controversial, his role was pivotal and his story demanded to be told. You may not forgive him, when you turn the last page, but you won’t forget him.
Betrayal is a standalone story, but be warned: it will spoil Awakening for you. Here’s what two of my favourite early reviewers have to say about Betrayal:
JP McLean possesses her own unique gift: the ability to bewitch her readers with her boundless imagination.
– Elinor Florence, Bestselling Author of Bird’s Eye View
Exciting action and conflict of loyalties make this a fantastic page-turner.
– Kristina Stanley, Bestselling Author of the Stone Mountain Mystery Series.
