Book Description

Book Four of the Guardians of the Word fantasy series - 

Dynan Telaerin lives within a shell of his own making, a place devoid of light. Every moment is a struggle to rediscover who he is. Forced to run farther and submerge his identity deeper than ever before, Legend is the story of his survival, how he discovers a reason to want to live and where he learns that dreams can be real. But there are no guarantees, for with each action an equal and opposite reaction occurs. There are nightmares to consider and souls to be lost.



To protect him, and give him time to heal, Dynan is sent to a place that is forbidden by the laws he's supposed to uphold. It's a calculated risk that he needs the anonymity Cadal can provide. The danger is weighed against the odds he'll be discovered - by the people of this backward planet, by allies who would use this infraction against him, or by an enemy who would see him dead.



The plans so carefully arranged soon start to unravel when Dynan meets the girl of his dreams - dreams that he doesn't remember until they walk up to him, living, breathing and beautiful. Preordained by the Gods, their attraction to each other is unstoppable. From the moment of acceptance the difficulties set before them stand in the way of their desire to be together. There are enemies, known and unknown, lurking in the outer reaches, and one, who as promised, intends to destroy everyone Dynan cares about.



Maralt Adaeryn has plans of his own and none of them end with happily ever after.





LEGEND, the 4th book of the Guardians of the Word series, is suitable for mature young adults. The Chronicles are Chosen, Myth, Telepath, Legend, Union, Seer, Adept and King.


Editorial Reviews

Review

  • This continuing saga kept me reading with a solid plot line, a bit of romance, and good writing - Thornton T. Perry
  • I think this is the most satisfying piece of the story so far, probably because things move along smoothly and we see so much character development - Katy Sozaeva, Now is Gone.
  • I am very much enjoying this series and hate that I have to wait for more! They are very well written and hard to put down - Susanne Chase

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, even better than the preceding novels July 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
After the fast-paced ride of book three, "Myth", "Legend" is a mixture of 1.) an initial, more "laid-back" look into the aftermath of tragedy, but then 2.) a wild ride to the end.

Written with Harrison's lovely, poetic language and ultimately beautiful sensory details, Legend follows Dynan and his men into a new world--one very different from their own. We are introduced to a new cast of characters, and a book that is so REAL it simply plays out on the screen of the reader's mind. Com pads and light boxes and laser guns - all of this seems every day to a reader from the real world! There is just enough mystery in "Legend" to balance what the reader already knows, and then when the twists come, it's like you let out a breath you've been holding for hundreds of pages.

Harrison deals with things normal people know - death, tragedy, love, and worry. There were times during "Legend" that I simply didn't understand how there could possibly be a resolution because Dynan's situation is just so hopeless...

And now, I can't wait to read the next to find out!

Every book of the Guardians of the Word series sucks me in. Between the unforgettable world building and the crazy intricate layers of plot and subplots, this series is akin to the majesty of greats like Tolkien and G.R.R Martin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy all eight of this series! September 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Guardians of the World Series is a unique blend of fantasy based heros, using swords etc. blended with space age technologies including space travels, weapons etc. I found the entire eight books a very good story with excellent character developments and lots of twists and mystical overtones. One must read all of the books in order starting from book one in order to keep the storyline in sequence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi Intrigue February 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This continuing saga kept me reading with a solid plot line, a bit of romance, and good writing. At least this particular book ends in a good stopping place, since the series is not complete, although the author has been getting the installments out fairly quickly. It is a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars whole series is fantastic February 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read this series. Buy them all. Fantastic. Think of Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar series and you might get an idea of what this whole series is like. That is the only series that I have read that comes close to this one. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic series!! January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, I have to say that I love these books. I read the first book in this series because I was looking for a good science fiction/fantasy book and because it was free ;) But, I have since bought and read all of the other books in this series and would have gladly paid for the first. This series is wonderful. In this book, I feel Dynan, our lead character, really goes through a change and finally starts to become the man he was destined to be. There are some very big surprises, some joy and some struggles but the story stays true to Mrs. Harrisons form and the story flows nicely. The characters, some of which are introduced in this book, are engaging and Mrs. Harrison does a wonderful job drawing you in to their lives; it was very easy for me to become immersed in this story as if I were actually there and to me, that feat makes a great book. I am huge Sci-fi and Fantasy fan and I would highly recommend this book and the rest of the books in the series!

More About the Author

Author Jolea M. Harrison is the author of the Epic Fantasy Series, Guardians of the Word. The Chronicles are Chosen, Myth, Telepath, Legend, Union, Seer, Adept and King.

Ms. Harrison has been writing for as long as she can remember, when around the age of eight she dreamed up an epic tale of a young princess in search of the King's approval, who went out and killed the evil monster none of the knights could slay! This short story was even illustrated on 3 x 5 cards. After reading The Lord of the Rings, the fantasy bug left a permanent mark, which was then complicated by her immediate love of Star Wars and other works of science fiction.

"It's been more than worth it, and I've enjoyed every minute, but especially getting to know the incredibly helpful and wonderful people I've met because I took a leap of faith. I'm a writer, a mother and manager of chaos. I try to do too many things at once, like so many of us, but it all usually works out. I love writing. It's what I'm passionate about and what I want to do above all other things."

Her other interests are gardening and maintaining her Civil War era home. On a recent fact finding mission about the house, she discovered the name of a young soldier who died there while being cared for by the doctor who owned the house at the time. Sometimes in the evening mists, it's not unusual to see the shapes of soldiers marching across the fields or hear 'something' climbing the stairs. She has two children who firmly believe in ghosts.
