Jess's Review ~ Legend by M.R. Leahy

Legend My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Another Sinister Fairy Tale and another interesting addition to this collection.

I have to say I was not expecting Jane and Tarzan's story so I was certainly taken by surprise with this one. It was definitely re-imagined from the cartoon my kids watched. On an island hidden away by a curse, Karzan, is about to find out that he is more than he was led to believe he was. Having no idea that he is part of the legend it is time that he "wakes" up to who he really is.

Janey, a girl who had long been fascinated with the legend of this hidden island and the future king finds out that her whole life has been leading up to this prophecy that she had only heard about in bedtime stories.

Like I said this was really an interesting take on the story. The evil of the jungle, a long lost prophecy, cursed beasts and man. This story was short but certainly packed a punch. It was also my first book by this author and won't be my last. I liked how there was little downtime and the story really moves and holds you. I do wish it had been a bit longer though because I felt like I wanted more.
