The Legacy (Legacies #1)
by Melissa Delport
Tracey McDonald Publishers
One man obsessed with power.
One woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him.
One war that changed the world.
“Eric Dane has segregated the wealth and resources that remain, giving a select few the highest chance of survival and leaving the rest to starve!”
World War 3 lasted twelve days and almost eradicated the human species. Growing up in post nuclear America, Rebecca Davis remained blissfully ignorant of the despotic leadership that had seized what was previously the most powerful nation in the world. When the truth is revealed and Rebecca discovers that everything she has been taught is a lie, she is determined to fight for the life that she has not been allowed to live.
In order to do this, Rebecca has to cross the boundary fences and venture out of the safety of the New United States, into the barren wastelands. It is there that she finds allies she never dreamed existed.
In Rebecca, the Resistance has finally found the ultimate weapon.
“You were given this life Rebecca, because you alone are strong enough to live it.”
An action-packed, adrenalin inducing thrill ride that will have you riveted until long after you have turned the last page.
Dream Movie Cast
By Melissa Delport, author of The Legacy
Sadly, authors have very little say in the casting of movie adaptations of their books. In fact, they have very little say over anything to do with the movie version. I think this is a tragedy of epic proportion, given that we created the characters being brought to life on the big screen.
I am struggling to come to terms with this fact, because there are a few cast members in my Dream Movie cast that I really wouldn’t mind meeting. (Are you paying attention, Mr Spielberg?)
When I started writing The Legacy, I had images in my mind that I used to describe my characters. I actually find this the easiest way to remember all the details about them (hair colour, eye colour, etc) because otherwise halfway though I have forgotten.
So, without any further ado, here is my DREAM MOVIE CAST (drum roll, please!):
Rebecca Davis – played by Ashley Greene
Aidan Moore – played by Justin Hartley
Reed McCoy – played by Chris Hemsworth
- Reed has green eyes: Nothing some contacts couldn’t fix (and besides, LOOK at that face!)
- Reed has a southern accent, whereas Chris is an Aussie native: Who cares... LOOK at that face!
Eric Dane – played by Ian Somerhalder
Kwan Lee – played by an attractive 40-year-old Korean actor
Morgan Kelly - played by Teresa Palmer
Michael Kelly – played by Alex Pettyfer
Now that our cast is all taken care of, there really are only three words left to say:
LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION!

She graduated from the University of South Africa with a Bachelor’s Degree in English in 2000
At the age of twenty-four Melissa started a logistics company (Transmax) from the spare room of her flat and built it up to two fully operational depots in Durban and Johannesburg. Now, 10 years later, she has sold her business in order to write full time.

The Legacy (book 1 of The Legacy Trilogy) and The Legion (book 2) are available now and the final book, The Legend, will be released early 2015.
An avid reader herself, Melissa finally decided to stop ‘watching from the sidelines’ and to do what is her passion.
“I was driving home from work when inspiration struck, and a storyline started unravelling in my head. For a few days it was all I could think about and eventually I realised that the only way to get it out of my head, was to put it all down on paper. I started writing, and that was that.”
