Legend by M.R. Leahy is an Adult Fantasy Retelling following Tarzan and Jane!
*Disclaimer: This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers*
“Far, far away, hidden on Insula Sacra—Island of the Accursed— lives a forgotten world of man
Damned by the Gods, and forced to live in everlasting darkness, they continue to fight a war that has long since been buried in time.
With each rise and fall of the cursed moon, they are reminded of all they’ve lost.
Desperate for freedom, they await the night the one true king will rise to power and free them
from the curse.
The King, however, cannot rise without his Queen—both blessed with the mark of the Gods,
they must end the war to save them all.
Or so the legend says…”
This is a fierce romance that I recommend to readers who want a fast, intense chemistry. A prophecy and a dream lead two characters into each others’ arms, and it’s only the beginning.
And trust me, this is a FAST romance. Like within the first meeting fast. If you’re looking for a slow-burn, you’re in the wrong place. But the relationship has been foretold for ages, and his father wants nothing more than to stop it.
I gave this one a solid 4 out of 5 stars. The story does follow the mystical world of gods, beasts, and humans and the wars between them, so there isn’t just a romance involved in this novella.
I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a unique, dark retelling!
