I read this book in my early teens, and somehow remembered it every time I came across anything that sparked my interest in sci-fi, however I could never remember the title, or character names well enough to find it. What I could remember, were bits and pieces of the story that I have been repeatedly describing to people or googling to try and find this story again. Needless to say, the story was memorable! Now that I've found it, I discover it was actually a prequel. To those of you who have re ...more

This is one of my favorite series as a young adult, and rereading it, I love it just as much. This prequel is a set of stories showing how Keill Randor grows up to be the man he is in the Last Legionary quartet... a man guided by self-control and determination to do his part.
I'm trying to get round to a number of books that have been sitting on my bookshelf for years making me feel guilty. This is one such. I read one or two of Hill's Last Legionary Quartet many years ago and enjoyed them. This is a 1982 prequel collection of stories about the training of the legionary who was to become the last of his kind, published by Piccolo, a junior imprint of Gollancz..

There are four stories, each taking a snapshot of Keill Randor's life, one age 12 as he takes the dangerous

My dad has often talked about a series of books from his childhood which have stuck with him throughout his life, and I've always wanted to read it—but he couldn't remember the series titles. Recently he recalled the word "legionnaire"; I found the series with a Google search and bought the ebooks straight away.

Young Legionary is a prequel to the Last Legionary series.

The book reminded me of some of Andre Norton's books for young adults. It is a fun read about an adolescent on a harsh planet who raise their children to be able to protect themselves. The goal of most is to young the Legion and serve as a mercenary to bring in income for the planet. The story is written in episodes taken along the journey to become a cadet.
