Publisher's Summary

The Empire made him a slave. They should have killed him when they had the chance.

Saul - a former prince - and his allies plot to steal the crown of Ubrain from the emperor's vault. In the crown, he sees the means to unify his enslaved people and bring them to freedom. But their road is not a straight one, and they soon find themselves caught in the middle of an unseen war as older powers work to twist the world to their own design. Saul has never been one to set easy tasks for himself, but he is determined to break the Empire's grip on his people, no matter how much blood must be spilled along the way.

It was a mistake to let him live - one they'll pay for with blood.

I'm hooked on this series...

Saul makes for an interesting man character because he's often making choices that show him to be someone that I wouldn't want to meet. He's often in situations where he has to make hard choices and sometime those choices sow just how ruthless he can be. But since his choices aren't made out of self interest, but rather they are made so that he can free his people from slavery, and it's hard to know what you wouldn't do if you were having to make those choices. So in the end I'm left with a main character I'm not sure I like but that I find I can respect.

This story contains great world building and characters, both come alive on the page, leaving me almost able to smell, taste, and see everything that is happening.

I loved the creativity of the story, I never knew what was going to happen next.

Excellent narration, the character voices were distinct and recognizable and seemed to match the personalities of the characters. The delivery was well paced and matched the tone of the book.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

An enjoyable tale

What did you like best about Dark Legion? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the story and the reluctant anti-hero main character.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I agree with the other reviews that the middle was as bit slow but it didn't bother me so much.

What does Brian Callanan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Brian Callanan has a great voice and really made each stand out with his performance.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

It would certainly be an interesting movie but I would likely close my eyes during the torture scenes.

Any additional comments?

Entertaining!

A dark gripping story!

This book is a dark story that drops you in at the deep end and starts expanding and explaining as it goes leaving you scratching your head at times but keeps you reading as you learn more.

The characters develop slowly but it is worth the wait as the story unfolds. The main characters become full bodied and you find yourself torn as to how to feel about them overall.

The performance is fantastic and the narrator gives gravitas to the situation and helps you connect further with the story.

In summation this is a great fantasy book with elements of magic and political intrigue.
I look forward to seeing the next instalment of this series.

This book was given to me free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
