As the author stated in his description of the book, Legacy: Beginnings is the story of Tao, set in a future where events have caused civilization to regress into a feudal type society where modern technology no longer exists. I enjoyed following Tao as he traveled across the new world on a mission, and in the process, learning about his past leading up to the present. Legacy: Beginnings primarily sets the ground work for future books in the series, introducing major players to the story and developing their characters and histories. I would recommend reading this book to anyone who enjoys reading new fantasy-type stories. Overall, I found this book to be a very good and engaging read and I am looking forward to the next installment in this series.
