Sober, serious, and driven, Logan Hale is the highest peace officer in Beldenridge, and he knows his city better than anyone: the labyrinthine streets, the vaulted architecture, and all the dark corners where tales of mutations and a vicious enemy still linger like hushed secrets. Logan is quick to dismiss these accounts as part of a storied past with which he’d rather not ...more

From Legend is author Ian Lewis’s first foray into fantasy, although that certainly isn’t apparent from the novel itself. The book is an exciting introduction to a brand-new setting, primarily centered around the city of Silas Belden. The constant discovery of new aspects of the world is tempered by Lewis’ decision to keep exposition minimal, which helps drive the narrative forward. This suits the story well, as it

Recommended to Jennifer by: Ian Lewis
I've enjoyed other books by this author (so I'm able to say this is one of my favorite authors) and I was excited to see not only a new book by this author but a new series as well. That said, once I started reading this, I realized it is a genre that I don't read often, so I don't know how qualified I am to review it, but . . . here goes.

I liked having both a strong male and a strong female protagonist. Both remind me a bit of Batman in the sense that they seem to have learned and honed their s

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book by Ian Lewis that I have read, and I can say that after finishing it I will be reading more. The narrative sweeps you wholly into the world created by Lewis. The details of Beldenridge make you feel as if you are right there in the city. Amidst a dark gothic backdrop characters are introduced, who seem infallible at first, but slowly become more human and vulnerable.

The book keeps you guessing as t

An advance review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. Ian Lewis does a great job creating characters in which a reader can become invested. Both the male and female protagonists in the story are strong leading figures. I’m very curious to see where he takes them in the next book of the series. In addition to creating great characters, there are also some great action scenes. I highly recommend this book.

Ian Lewis prefers not to be bound by a particular genre. Though the inspiration for his work varies, it often finds roots in something he dreamt. He strives for a gritty realism and maintains an interest in the humanity of his characters. His hope is that readers find themselves haunted by his stories in the sense that the narrative sticks with them long after they've finished reading, leaving the ...more
