My review for book 1, Heiress
My review for book 2, Baroness


Review:
I've enjoyed this entire series, but this one is my favorite book so far. 
I love the era, and it being based around glitzy, glamorous, Hollywood. It is a theme you can put into any story I read. There is just something that appeals to me about the 1920's - 1940's. The music, the clothes, the class everyone seemed to have had... all call to me.
I really hope the author continues this legacy series of stories. After reading this one, I hope the next are about Roxys' children, continuing the legacy.
Even though this is a series, you can read them as stand alone books. I wouldn't recommend that though, as they are fantastic enough to start at book 1. Learning the back stories to some of the characters may not be necessary to follow along, but it makes it better.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
