Legendary is the first book in the young adult fantasy, the Legendary Saga by author L.H. Nicole. The Legendary Saga is a tale about King Aurther. I love Arthurian stories, so I knew this one would be right up my alley. I think this series will be perfect for fans of the tv show Merlin. That was the kind of King Arthur tale I was getting while reading Legendary.
Legendary is a quest story. It starts out in the time of King Arthur and we watch the faerie queen put a spell on him to put him to sleep until the destined one can come and awaken him. Then we flash forward a couple hundred years when the destined one stumbles her way into Avalon. Then it becomes her quest to get Arthur’s helpers to get Arther. I love a quest story. For a while I felt like this was just going to be a solo mission, with Aliana venturing out on her own the whole time. But she is soon joined by Magic (a dragon) and Loyal (sir Galahad). I will warn you now that there is a love triangle. I know you can tell from the summary, but I am reserving judgment as to this triangle because I think it is going to be pretty flippy floppy during the Saga and I don’t know whose side I am on yet.
Something I found very interesting with Legendary is the fact that each of the chapters start off with a little bit of thoughts from various characters in the story. It was a cool way to slip into the different characters heads and see what they were thinking about Aliana. I have never seen that done before and I really liked it. The book is told from Aliana’s point of view so that was a cool touch.
Bottom line: If you are a fan of King Arthur tales, give the Legendary Saga a try. It starts off with a very classic King Arthur vibe, but as the book goes on there are modern spins thrown in. Some I really dug, some I thought were a bit weird, but overall it worked. I will be continuing this series for the simple fact that L. H. Nicole made me interested in what is going to happen next. If you are a looking for a new King Arthur/prophecy/quest story, try out Legendary and the Legendary Saga.
*Disclaimer- I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher.
Legendary is the perfect weekend escape book. Getting lost in the beauty and drama of this new take on the old stories was a welcome escape from reality. Of course, most people will focus on all the heroics, and I admit that Aliana is a confident, quirky, and strong protagonist. But for me, the stories have always been about Merlin, Mordrid, and Morgana. What would Arthur be without his durid? Who would Merlin be were it not for Mordrid? Every hero needs a worthy opponent and L.H.Nicole has given readers that tenfold in her version of Mordrid and the menacing Sidhe.
Some of the best moments in the book come from watching characters out of their natural elements. Without giving away too many details, there are some fantastic moments that involve the knights of Avalon discovering technology and some equally wonderful moments watching Aliana try to wrap her head around the fantastical world of Avalon. And for all you Shakespeare fans, there's even some (pretty big) nods to the Bard's works. Honestly, this book has a little bit of everything. If you're a fan of the classic Arthur legends or, like me, if you are feeling loss over the ending of BBC's Merlin, this is a book for you. If you've never read or watched any iteration of the Arthurian legends, but the idea of escaping into a mystical fantasy that blends the ordinary and the extraordinary, this is the book for you. If you like adventure and romance, this is the book for you. Basically, just go read this book, you won't regret it.
