"Once upon a time, there lived three witches…"

As a child, Amarrah loved her grandmother’s stories of three witches who were members of the king’s harem—but they were more than just stories. Amarrah knew she had been there with them…and now their legacy, along with an ancient box that once belonged to them, lies in her hands.

Charged with keeping the box safe, Amarrah is heartbroken when it is stolen from her while she moves to America. Years later, she is shocked to see it on TV and is determined to get it back. Tracking the artifact leads her to Sergeant Harrison Brockson, a handsome soldier who stirs memories of a man she knew centuries ago in ancient Babylon. Is Harrison the key to finding the box—or could he be her destiny?

Prequel novella to Maggie Shayne’s exciting trilogy, "The Portal"
I have already read the first book in this series Mark of the Witch, which was amazing!  However I wish I had read this one first. 
Legacy of the Witch was a delightful book.  It helped to shed light on the three witches through Amarrah's flashbacks.  We got to see what the harem witches were like as people.  I liked that this story showed us how the box finally made its way to Indira after 3000 years. 
Amarrah was lots of fun.  I enjoyed seeing her inner turmoil over losing the box.  Harrison is extremely sexy in a whole I'm here to save the day and not ask questions sort of way.  He is a true solider. 
If you are looking for a quick free romance with some mystery this one is for you.  Just remember that once you read this you will be begging to get your hands on the next installment in The Portal Series!
