“Make no mistake. You will serve Talon, one way or another. We just have to find that breaking point.”

It’s no secret I’m one of the few people (among those I know or follow) who are still deeply involved with this series. I cherish and am obsessed with Garret, adore Riley and the rest of the crew, have a love/hate relationship with Ember, and generally am knee-deep in Kagawa’s perilous fantasy story-telling abilities. The end of Soldier (and all of Soldier, really, in my opinion) was

I will hand over 5 stars, no questions asked, if a certain character stays dead. Be brave, Kagawa. ;)

YES I am going to read this despite the emotional trauma of the ships and YES I am going to cry and rant to all of you lovely people in the process. Just FYI.

Ps.. am I the only one that feels this way? (Chelsssssss don't you dare...)

Ember Hill, dragon, is in a battle to survive. The order of St George is hot on her trail, her brother entrenched in Talon and Riley just trying to make the right decisions for his rogues.

Betrayal comes where you least expect it and I can assure you there were some really shocking twists that completely took my breath away.

LEGION was a really great read.

I have to admit I was a little unsettled with the love triangle that continued throughout SOLDIER, but now that Ember has made her choice, th

Love this series. So excited to find out what happens next. I can totally picture the dragon battle. It's so well done. If you're a dragon fan, you need to check out this series. ...more
Updated May 3, 2017:
Legion is beyond amazing, emotional, gripping and shocking. Hatchling and rogue dragon Ember Hill never thought she would find love, let alone with a human and a former dragonslayer. With Garret dying after sacrificing his life and freedom to expose the betrayals of both their worlds to which Ember now knows that nothing she was taught by Talon is true. Everything was a lie, about humans, about rogues, about herself and what she and dragons are capable of doing and feeling. E

Well, I think it’s safe to say my reading tastes have definitely changed over the course of the last year. This is the second series I’ve returned to this month (the other being The End of Oz) and had to ask myself what on Earth I was thinking when I said I liked them.

Is this the worst in the series, or can I just no longer stomach these entertaining reads that have no depth? Maybe a combination of both.

Like many readers, I find dragons very interesting, which is what initially led me to pick up

I REALLY LIKE RILEY :0 (don't hate me please!!)
Mysterious and alluring characters always get me intrigued.
I'm excited to see how the story develops onwards! The cliffhanger at the end of Soldier reaaaaaaally got me frustrated. Julie Kagawa knows exactly how to write cliffhangers like this, which is both frustrating and TOTALLY AWESOME.

Counting down the days till April 25th!!

Gosh I thoroughly enjoyed that one. I enjoyed it so much I just said gosh. Blimey!

I've been following this series from the start and it has just gotten better and better with every book - I'm kind of quite sad that book 5 will be the finale I believe because I've been so engaged with Ember and Riley and all the rest, in a world where Dragons live among us disguised as humans and a war rages between Talon (the dragon hierarchy and a shadowy group if ever there was one) and St George (of the Drago

Checkout my full review on my blog! http://omgbooksandmorebooks.blogspot....

can always count on Julie Kagawa to make me feel so many emotions and mess with my heart. Legion is another thrilling novel of The Talon Saga. Ember and Dante are separated even more by the truths and lies of Talon. Ember believes the true evil of the organization while Dante will do anything in his power to rise in ranks of the very organization Ember is trying to take down.

There is nonstop action from beginning to end

First off I got to admit after the last book I was a little scared to read this one.

Then I got over it because I told Chelsea ❤Peril Please❤ that I wasn't gonna read it tell she did, and when she did she told me there was nothing to worry about. So yeah!

Oh my what a way to continue this series and with only one book to go it's certainly going to be a humdinger of an ending! This begins right as the last book Soldier ended with Garret bleeding out his life's blood after a cowardly attack. Ember is even more determined to take down Talon but she's definitely caught between a rock and a hard place as her twin Dante seems to have become her enemy. Those of St. George who hunt the Dragons are so blinkered that they can't or won't acknowledge that Ro ...more

"The soldier of St. George and the dragon, killed together on the field of battle."

"Fighting on the other side of the war. Even though they're supposed to be mortal enemies who hate each other. Like the Montagues and Capulets."

"If Romeo didn't die from poison. And Juliet was a fire-breathing dragon."

Well shit. This was easily the best book in the series thus far. Action abound, plot development, larger-than-life antagonists revealed, and scenes of hilarious ingenuity courtesy
One more book left. I'm sitting at the edge of my seat. Yikes. Where's my popcorn?

Legion was so freaking good. We, of course, still have the same people and the same mission. Unfortunately, there's still talk and hints about this damn love triangle between Ember, Garret, and Riley. You'd think that I would eventually go along with it all.. but that isn't going to happen.

Luckily for me, these guys are growing so much throughout this series. Ember is becoming more likable to me somehow. Especiall

What can I say...
Even though I thought the middle part of this book was a bit... boring and not quite my cup of tea, the ending more than made up for that!

I'm just trash for this series and you better believe that Inferno is on its way to me, so I can finish this story!

Oh, this kills me and not in the good way.
Now you're probably thinking 'But Alexandra! Why did you give it 4 stars then??'

Here's Why

1) Honestly, no book in this series could possibly be worse than the garbage tornado that was Rogue.

2) Riley gets schooled by not one, not two, but THREE exasperated lady dragons! Yes! Put that bitch ass mofo in his place.

3) Jade is back! I love her so much partly because of point 2, but also she's just an all-around badass. Fighting hard and taking nam

Legion by Julie Kagawa is book four in the Talon series and if you are at all interested in dragons, romance, and danger you should definitely check this series out. I had been waiting (what seemed like FOREVER) for this book since I closed the cover on book three and was so excited to jump into this world again. If you haven’t read the other books yet, you may want to hold off on reading this book. I can’t guarantee I won’t spoil something from the prior books.

*My Thoughts*

Legion is the fourth installment in Julie Kagawa's Talon series. Legion literally picks up where Soldier left off. When I say literally, I mean that if you remember how Soldier ended, then you know how this story begins. Things look extremely bleak for one of our heroes. He's defeated the sanctimonious Patriarch of St. George in a showdown, but suffered a horrifying injury in the process. Ember and her allies tried hard to brea

Honestly, "the Soldier" has the deepest soul of all the characters in this series and as much as I appreciate non-happy endings (I really do, especially where self-centered, irrational protagonists are concerned) Garrett's past still has mysteries to unlock, despite all the illumination in the last chapters of "Soldier". One question I must have an answer for: was one of Garret's parents a dragon? Maybe a 2nd because if so, wouldn't a pheonix be a feasible (awesome and rare) crossbreed, between ...more

Legion brought my favorite dragons and their struggles to a complete new level of epicness! The action and the final fight at the end gave me heart palpitations!

I received this ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I was in no way compensated for this review.

Julie Kagawa has been one of my most favorite authors ever since I picked up The Iron King, when I heard about her dragon series, I knew it was going to be epic and for the past four years now, it’s proven to be absolutely true! Legion continues the story that follows Ember, Riley, Garret, and Dante; dragons and dragon hunter all from different ends of
