Five years after the destruction of the so-called rehabilitation camps that imprisoned her and countless other Psi kids, seventeen-year-old Suzume "Zu" Kimura has assumed the role of spokesperson for the interim government, fighting for the rights of Psi kids against a growing tide of misinformation and prejudice. But when she is accused of committing a horrifying act, she is forced to go on the run once more in order to stay alive.

Determined to clear her name, Zu finds herself in an uncomfortable alliance with Roman and Priyanka, two mysterious Psi who could either help her prove her innocence or betray her before she gets the chance. But as they travel in search of safety and answers, and Zu grows closer to the people she knows she shouldn't trust, they uncover even darker things roiling beneath the veneer of the country's recovery. With her future-and the future of all Psi-on the line, Zu must use her powerful voice to fight back against forces that seek to drive the Psi into the shadows and save the friends who were once her protectors.

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a harrowing story of resilience, resistance, and reckoning that will thrill loyal fans and new readers alike. (Goodreads)

I was a little late to the party when it came to reading The Darkest Minds trilogy, but I just recently finished the series, and I really enjoyed it! And I was thrilled that I finished the books just in time for this first new series to release, and I really enjoyed it as well!!

The Darkest Legacy is the fourth book in The Darkest Minds series, and while it’s set in the same world as the previous books, the story is told from Suzume’s point of view this time around. The storyline for the book picks up a few years after where In the Afterlight leaves off, and though 5 years have gone by, the world felt very much like it did in the previous books, with prejudice and hate against the Psi kids, despite all of the fighting that Suzume and others have done for the rights of these kids. When one horrific event goes wrong, Susume finds herself on the run once again, doing her best to stay alive.

The storyline for this book very similar, yet very different to that of the previous books. It was interesting to see the story through Susume’s eyes, including the flashbacks that had happened over the past few years. SO much has happened over that time, though it feels like very little progress was made, which felt very realistic to the world today, unfortunately. The storyline for the book was definitely addictive, and I was hooked on the story. The book ends in a way that will definitely have you pining away for the next book, and I am hoping that we will get information for that book soon!

As I mentioned above, this book is told from Susume’s point of view, and I love that she is our narrator! She was so quite through most of the first three books, and I really enjoyed getting to know her more in this story. The book has a lot of interesting new characters, as well a some of the characters we know and love from the previous books, and I love this the most about the book! I’m super curious to see what’s going to happen next for ALL of these characters.

Overall; fans of The Darkest Minds series will definitely want to check out this newest book! I really enjoyed diving back into this world, and I really can’t wait to see what’s going to happen in the next book, which I can’t seem to find any information on, but will definitely be keeping an eye out for! I really enjoyed this book, so check it out!!
