Publisher's Summary

Penumbra, a haphazard city of outcasts, rebels, and malcontents, has floated around a dead planet in a backwater system for longer than living memory can recall. Its towers abandoned starships melded to an ancient, mysterious core, Penumbra is the last remnant of chaotic individualism in a galaxy where conformity to the will of the all-powerful Galactic Council is paramount. Dropped into this dangerous mix are Marcus Wells - a Human of Earth who has squandered his potential to live a life of least resistance - and his adventurous friend Justin. Immediately entangled in local politics and targeted by a vengeful representative of the Council who is determined to drag the city back into the fold, Marcus has a choice to make: continue following the path of least resistance and allow Penumbra to fall, or show these aliens what a truly determined Human can accomplish.

Most Helpful

Deep insightful Sci-Fi with a twist,

Would you consider the audio edition of The Legacy of Shadow to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't know I didn't read the print version. I only listened to the audio version but it was well voiced.

What did you like best about this story?

The world setting that puts the primary protagonists on the back foot is a new take on humans in space.

Which character – as performed by Ray Greenley – was your favorite?

Justin. A great foil for his friend and a way to help ground the experiences of Marcus against for the reader.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Revelation of ancient human history on the galactic scale as hinted about through the novel. Sense of dual personality riding in Marcus also proves interesting through the book.

Any additional comments?

Couple moments that feel a bit dues ex machina but appropriate to continue to expand the story out. Some foreshadowed items left off the table and hopefully to be explored in a future book in the series.

Very good!

Great narration by Ray Greenley, his voice does great to not take away from the story being told and isn't a distraction allowing the authors words and thoughts to be easily enjoyed.

The writer has a good grasp on the language and paints a vivid fantastical world for the listener to submerge them self within.
