Publisher's Summary

A.D. 1270: An epic story of loss, love, and redemption. On the Seventh Crusade, Sir Alec Summerlin makes a horrible mistake that costs him everything.

Once the greatest swordsman in the realm, he lays his weapon down and refuses to ever wield a broadsword again. Surrendering his spurs, he retires to his father's castle in self-imposed exile. His father, however, has other ideas for his greatest son and betroths him to a local ale heiress.

The Lady Peyton de Fluornoy is as resistant to marriage as Alec is, but she gradually begins to warm to the man who has given up on life. Alec comes to know a lady of spirit, beauty, and intelligence. Before their marriage can happen, however, Alec's father is blackmailed by a neighbor who wants Peyton for his own son. Now deeply in love, Alec elopes with Peyton and an entirely new world of danger and passion opens up for them both.

As the conflict with the neighbor heats up, deep and horrific secrets are revealed, and Peyton ends up in grave danger. Alec must recant his vow and draw his sword again to save the woman that he loves as The Legend is once again reborn.

    Story
    "A Guy reviewing this."

    As a male reviewing a novel meant to tailor more towards a female audience, I can say that I pleasantly enjoyed the contents of this novel in a genre I don't usually venture into. Gill brought force superb voices for each and every one of the characters. Even his occasional, self-corrected slip-ups in the narrations prompted a quick round of chuckles from myself. Much of the comedy was fresh and well-times while the romance felt completely natural. Nothing seemed like it was forced in terms of characters or the story line. Even the depiction of medieval nobility seemed realistic enough, despite how much of a trope it can be. The things The Legend lacks lie in a lack of real depth or a male definition of "epicness". Thus, I can't say if I will appraoch another romance novel in the future, but I can definitely say that The Legend knows what it wants, and does it well.

    "Didn't like the ending"

    I loved the narration, Brian J. Gill changed the voice for all characters, and I think he did an amazing job with all of them. However, i felt the ending was rushed and it left some stories unfinished. It was a nice story, it made me laugh, but there some parts that could have been shorter and I was expecting a better ending.

    Story
    "Legendary"
    Where does The Legend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I drive a lot for work. The Legend was so much fun to get whisked away into a fantasy. The narrators voice and pronunciation of words made me hang on every syllable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Legend?

    I like the parts where the main characters were truly testing each other and then you feel the shift to respecting each other...leading to love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ali finding Payton


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Get whisked away to another time where love and chivalry is still alive.

    Story
    "A very good read!"

    Another Le Verque winner. I enjoyed the story from the start to finish. The only couple of problems I had with it was that the ending was too neatly and quickly wrapped up when the rest took so long to build and the narration. Brian Gill read the entire book very fast and with a higher pitch. The narration fit well for exciting scenes but fell short with the rest. Still didn't take too much away from the book. A very enjoyable read.
