Synopsis: As the magical holiday season is disrupted with an afternoon of horror, it becomes apparent that the Legions have begun their uprising around the globe, and Ana does her best to stay strong even though her world has been shattered. It is up to Ana to find the strength within and not fall prey to the dark side as she begins her chase to reclaim what’s rightfully hers.
Realizing that Ana’s visions alone are not enough to protect them, her family begins her training immediately before she is targeted once more. The Legions will not quit until they get what they want, and they have made it clear that mortals will not be spared, leaving Ana little time to figure out what it is the demons are after.
As Ana balances her time between chasing after her destiny and spending her time relearning how to fight demons, she learns something about her past that could change why she’s fighting for anything at all. Clues continue to unfold in the form of yellowed letters she finds from Athen buried within an old Tudor home; and her future is signaled in a lone, white rose left for only her to see giving her the strength to persevere. She is determined to not give up faith that she will have it all once more.
I really had wanted to get this up much sooner, however, it hasn’t happened until now. If you haven’t read Awakening, the first in the series, please go read it now. This review may contain some spoilers otherwise. If you have read it, please continue.
Legions begins right where Awakening left off. Ana finds herself on the other side of the equation as she loses her beloved. She must find the courage to do what is necessary, all while continuing her own Awakening process. Now faced with grief, emptiness, and jealousy, Ana must track down Athen to start the process. But if she interferes it could set her back decades before they are reunited.
With the forces of evil growing bolder each day, the gang must continue to train Ana, find Athen and bring the fallen angels together for an impending battle that could mark the end of mankind as it’s known. Do they succeed? Will Ana find away to fight through the jealousy and agony she now faces? Does Ana finally see the return of the power she once possessed? Ha! It won’t be that type of spoiler now, so read the story you must!
Karice Bolton delivers a wonderfully paced story filled with action, adventure, magic, love, and even a few bleary eyed pages. This story is an absolute must read, and one I proudly paid good money for. Sadly I feel Ms. Bolton got the shorter end of the stick as I would have gladly paid more for the enjoyment of her work. I look forward to the final story in the trilogy, but also hope to read more from her after this one is complete.
Stay tuned for my review of the final book, Cataclysm which is available now on amazon and barns n noble in e-book format. Soon it will be available in print too. Books in this trilogy: Awakening, Legions, and Cataclysm.
