THE TESLA LEGACY follows a precocious young scientist named Lucy Phelps whose fateful encounter in the Tesla Suite of the New Yorker Hotel unlocks her dormant electrical powers. As Lucy struggles to understand her new abilities through scientific experimentation, she is thrust into a centuries old battle between rival alchemical societies.

One side wants her help and the other wants her dead, but both believe she is the next step in human evolution. Unfortunately, carriers of the genetic mutation—including Nikola Tesla—have a greatly reduced life expectancy. Even if Lucy can outrun her enemies, she can’t outrun herself.


I don’t know what to tell you, so I’m going to talk to you about my feelings. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the story because it’s interesting but I didn’t manage to catch it and I think it’s largely because science has always bothered me. However, if it is not something that bothers you, you will be won over because this book is interesting. I learned a lot about Tesla and a lot of other things.

One thing that bothered me was the fact that Lucy can’t finally trust anyone. She is all alone and even if at first she doesn’t want to trust anyone, in the end we realize that even if she wanted to, it’s too dangerous.

The author’s style is nice and frankly if I didn’t like the story as much it was also because I didn’t feel embarked, neither by the characters, nor by the subject.

If you like independent, intelligent young girls and adventure stories with science, you will be delighted by this book.

In short: A book that was not for me but that I recommend to all people who like action stories with science.


Je ne sais pas trop quoi vous dire donc je vais surtout vous parler de mon ressentit. Ce n’ai pas que je n’ai pas aimé l’histoire car elle est intéressante mais je n’ai pas réussi à accrocher et je pense que c’est en grande partie parce que les sciences m’ont toujours ennuyée. Cependant si ce n’est pas un truc qui vous gêne vous aller être conquis car ce livre est intéressant. J’ai appris énormément de choses sur Tesla mais aussi sur bien d’autres.

Une chose qui m’a dérangée c’est le fait que Lucy ne peut finalement faire confiance à personne. Elle est toute seule et même si au départ elle ne veut faire confiance à personne, au final on se rend compte que même si elle voulait, c’est trop dangereux.

Le style de l’auteur est sympa et franchement si j’ai moins aimé l’histoire c’est aussi parce que je ne me suis pas sentie embarquée, ni par les personnages, ni par le sujet.

Si vous aimez les jeunes filles indépendantes, intelligentes ainsi que les histoires d’aventures avec de la science, vous serez enchanté par ce livre.

En bref : Un livre qui n’était pas pour moi mais que je conseille à toutes les personnes qui aiment les histoires d’action avec de la science.
