Maddie Temple can’t go through this again. Her twin has been in a coma for the last ten years. Their psychic link was severed. At least, that’s what she thought.

But there’s a lot Maddie doesn’t know—about the 200-year-old curse on her family, about the shadowy group that wants to exploit the Temple twins’ powers for themselves, about the sexy psychiatrist offering to help her. The only way to find the answers and avoid being pulled into the abyss of madness is to trust her heart and confront her DARK LEGACY

Thought provoking and addictive are just a few of the things that can be said about Dark Legacy. This spine tingling psychological suspense novel kept me glued to my seat. I had to discover what would happen to Maddie and Sarah.

From the first sentence, the reader is dragged into the confused and somewhat broken minds of a set of twin sisters who have inherited the gift of psychic empathy. After one of the siblings slips into a coma after a terrible car accident the other is forced to take on even more responsibility to keep her fractured family together.

From the moment you pick up this book you will be transported into a world where very little makes sense. Following Maddie as she desperately tries to build and maintain a normal life and build her career as an ER trauma doctor, the reader discovers that very little is what it seems. Between secret government agencies experimenting with her sister’s gifts while she is still in a coma and her losing her grasp on reality, Maddie is on the road to destruction. The question is will she be able to pull herself together in time?

Well crafted, Dark Legacy is one of those books the reader will be loath to leave until the very end. There are so few authors who can blend the heart racing suspense of a great psychological thriller with the detail and character development that Anna DeStefano did to produce this magnificent book. If you are the type who loves a good suspense you will not only read this novel once, but you will want to come back and experience it again and again.
