Summary from Goodreads:
As their story continues, Calvin and Caledonia find themselves madly in love, on the run, and nearly out of money. When Cal stumbles upon a way to cash in on Cali’s powers, their life on the road becomes a life of leisure. Despite the easy money and newfound luxury, Caledonia’s conscience begins to trouble her.

A disturbing warning only serves to confirm her misgivings, making her question her purpose in life. Finally, a shocking discovery about the true nature of her powers points the way forward, sending the two Cals on a dangerous rescue mission.

Caledonia tries her best to right the wrongs of the past, but will she only end up provoking new and even more dangerous enemies?

My Review:
The Mackenzie Legacy is the sequel to The Athena Effect and another five star book in my opinion. I flew through this story, I could not put it down. I liked how the story was told not just about Caledonia and Calvin but also Layla and Michael. Although Caledonia and Calvin are my favorites.

It picks up where The Athena Effect left off. Caledonia and Calvin are on the run since her escape from the mad scientist Professor Reed. With little money and danger lurking everywhere they sleep in a tent or cheap motels and move from town to town every couple days. When Calvin discovers a way to make money using Caledonia's powers they end up in Las Vegas. It's here that Caledonia meets a woman who points her in a whole new direction about her powers. It's turns out that her power of persuasion is not from Professor Reed's experiments but is actually genetic. When Caledonia turns 18 her and Calvin head to her little cabin in the woods. When she goes to claims her cabin and land she discovers that she has inherited so much more. She also finds out who her relatives are and so much more about her family history.

Layla and Micheal are now living in Los Angeles with Max. Micheal is Max's right hand man with the finances. In return Max is proving Micheal with a life of luxury. Layla on the other hand has to use her powers of persuasion on men so Max can blackmail them later for money.

There are so many thrilling, twists and turns, edge of your seat moments that I could go on and on. This was one exciting story to read. I can't wait to see what happens next! This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
