Legion (Talon #4) by Julie Kagawa
Publisher: MIRA Ink
Goodreads Summary: The legions are about to be unleashed, and no human, rogue dragon or former dragon slayer can stand against the coming horde. Book 4 of 5 in The Talon Saga from New York Times bestselling author Julie Kagawa.
Dragon hatchling Ember Hill was never prepared to find love at all--dragons do not suffer human emotions--let alone the love of a human and a former dragonslayer, at that. With ex-soldier Garret dying at her feet after sacrificing his freedom and his life to expose the deepest of betrayals, Ember knows only that nothing she was taught by dragon organization Talon is true. About humans, about rogue dragons, about herself and what she's capable of doing and feeling.
In the face of great loss, Ember vows to stand with rogue dragon Riley against the dragon-slaying Order of St. George and her own twin brother Dante--the heir apparent to all of Talon, and the boy who will soon unleash the greatest threat and terror dragonkind has ever known.
Talon is poised to take over the world, and the abominations they have created will soon take to the skies, darkening the world with the promise of blood and death to those who refuse to yield.
Rating: 5 Stars
Review: After a shocking sacrifice, Ember and Riley work to keep those they love alive. However there is still a war to be fought and feelings cannot tamper with their better judgment. Talon has dark secrets, and as they are revealed Ember's world will only continue to flip upside down...
I'm still in awe. Julie Kagawa has her readers worrying about the fates of these beloved characters, risking their survival until help swoops in... at the very last possible moment. Heroic characters who risk everything for different reasons. Their complex personalities war with one another as they fight for what they believe is the right way.
Characters have hard decisions to make throughout this book, which may come back and haunt them or lead them to victory. Separation is inevitable in these warring times, but each time they say their goodbyes I worry for their fates, about what will happen to them when they aren't a united force.
Oh, Dante. I think he's changed the most out of them all, his good heart and protective instincts altered by the changes occurring around him. I pity him, but I also hate him for how he misunderstands Ember. The romance in Legion takes another step forward as Ember must decide; I really like the approach Julie Kagawa took to sort out the romance.
The Talon saga continues with this book, Legion, the fourth in an epic adventure about Dragons and humans who hate each other and will fight to the death to exterminate the other. Uneasy alliances formed may prove to be stronger than first thought and some things are made to be broken.
