Brooklyn Harper’s friends have betrayed her, her heart is broken, and all of humanity is at risk.

After Kirin’s unannounced arrival in Louisiana, Brooklyn finds herself scrambling for a way out of an impossible situation. Kirin is creating the deadly Genesis Cull, and Brooklyn doesn’t know who to turn to for help.

With no other options, she’s forced to trust her nemesis, Juneau Malloy. His support allows the group of Special Omen Operatives to gear up, form a plan of action, and train for the day when they come face-to-face with their worst fear—going to war with their friends.

There is a divide in the once inseparable group of Omens, and their only hope is to put the pieces back together.

Julian Yu Matsumoto agonizes over the difference between right and wrong, love and sacrifice, genocide and revolution. While he struggles with his feelings for Kirin, his moral compass is spinning round and round, his heart is being pulled in different directions, and Julian is desperate to answer questions he never thought he would have to ask.

Is Kirin’s Genesis Cull a revolution or genocide?

Could there be another way to save themselves and humanity as they know it?

Will Julian pay the ultimate price for loving a monster?

Their only hope for redemption is—the Legacy Strain.

Review
Legacy Strain is the final book in the Isolation series by Taylor Brooke. It is an incredible conclusion to this series. The story is so intense and I didn’t want to put it down. I had to know how it ended even though I didn’t want it to end.
There is a lot of different emotional things taking place in this book; trust, betrayal, secrets, lies, hope, denial, confusion, sacrifices, etc. It will make your head spin a little as you try to keep up with everything that is going on. However, it is written in a way that you get a conclusion for every single character and it is so intricate in the details that what you thought you knew may not be the truth.
I liked the diversity in this book with the LGBT+ community being represented in a way that the characters sexual orientation wasn’t the main focus, it was just part of who they are. It’s rare to see that done and it was refreshing because it seemed more realistic and not like a flashing sign saying “Look at me”.
I’m a little torn on how I feel about Brooklyn and Julian now though. So much has happened during the course of that series and they changed a lot. Also, there is something that is revealed that was a little shocking to me and makes me want to not like a character that I initially loved. I don’t want to give anything away so that is all I will say on that subject. I would highly recommend this entire series.
