Book Description

Dynan Telaerin lives within a shell of his own making, a place devoid of light. Every moment is a struggle to rediscover who he is. After barely surviving the loss of his twin brother, Dynan is forced to run farther and submerge his identity deeper than ever before. Legend is the story of his survival, how he discovers a reason to want to live and where he learns that dreams can be real. But there are no guarantees, for with each action an equal and opposite reaction occurs. There are nightmares to consider and souls to be lost.

To protect him, and give him time to heal, Dynan is sent to a place that is forbidden by the laws he’s supposed to uphold. It’s a calculated risk that he needs the anonymity Cadal can provide. The danger is weighed against the odds he’ll be discovered - by the people of this backward planet, by allies who would use this infraction against him, or by an enemy who would see him dead.

The plans so carefully arranged soon start to unravel when Dynan meets the girl of his dreams – dreams that he doesn’t remember until they walk up to him, living, breathing and beautiful. Preordained by the Gods, their attraction to each other is unstoppable. From the moment of acceptance the difficulties set before them stand in the way of their desire to be together. There are enemies, known and unknown, lurking in the outer reaches, and one, who as promised, intends to destroy everyone Dynan cares about.

Maralt Adaeryn has plans of his own and none of them end with happily ever after.

LEGEND, the 4th book of the Guardians of the Word series, is suitable for mature young adults. The Chronicles are Chosen, Myth, Telepath, Legend, Union, Seer, Adept and King.

Product Description

About the Author

Author Jolea M. Harrison has been writing for as long as she can remember, when around the age of eight she dreamed up an epic tale of a young princess in search of the King’s approval, who went out and killed the evil monster none of the knights could slay! This short story was even illustrated on 3 x 5 cards! After reading The Lord of the Rings, the fantasy bug left a permanent mark, which was then complicated by her immediate love of Star Wars and other works of science fiction. She started her writing career in earnest about 10 years ago when she set out to publish the epic series, The Guardians of the Word, which is eight books in length. After receiving her fair share of typical agent rejection notices, she decided to independently publish the first book of the series, Chosen, in June, 2011. Myth, Telepath and Legend followed over the course of the year. The remaining books, Union, Adept, Seer and King will be released in approximately three month intervals. “It’s been more than worth it, and I’ve enjoyed every minute, but especially getting to know the incredibly helpful and wonderful people I’ve met because I took a leap of faith. I’m a writer, a mother and manager of chaos. I try to do too many things at once, like so many of us, but it all usually works out. I love writing. It’s what I’m passionate about and what I want to do above all other things.” Her other interests are gardening and maintaining her Civil War era home. On a recent fact finding mission about the house, she discovered the name of a young soldier who died there while being cared for by the doctor who owned the house at the time. Sometimes in the evening mists, it’s not unusual to see the shapes of soldiers marching across the fields or hear ‘something’ climbing the stairs. She has two children who firmly believe in ghosts.

More About the Author

I was never considered a rebellious kid. The last of a line of 4 children of Doug and Fran Minnick, I was able to get away with all the usual 'baby of the family' trickery, aka Everything. Really, I got away with it all because I was more observant than my brother and sisters, and learned faster than they did what drove Mom and Dad to distraction. I either didn't do those things, or I did them in such a way as the older sibs got the blame or the parents just didn't find out about it. I snuck out of the house with my older brother and climbed trees down by the run in the middle of the night with a bottle of Jim Beam to go around at the age of not saying. We ran around the neighbor's front field shooting bottle rockets at each other in a mock battle of epic proportions. On THAT one, we got caught. The bottle rockets made too much noise. There was some serious yelling over it, but not for me. I just got sent to bed.

I tried all the usual antics to publish my series about teenage boys who have some similarities to my brother and his friends and got all the usual rejections. I set out as an Indie last June, 2011, and hit the publish button on Chosen, the first of the Guardians of the Word epic fantasy series. So far, it's been a decision I'd make over and over again, just like I'd crawl out my window overlooking the back porch, shimmy down the drain pipe and take off into the night...oh wait, now I can take the stairs.

I'm a writer, a mother and manager of chaos. I try to do too many things at once, like so many of us, but it all usually works out. I love writing. It's what I'm passionate about and what I want to do above all other things.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to talk about the individual plots, I really enjoyed these and out of over 400 books on my kindle read the first 4 back to back. I have the rest on my wish list but will have to wait for more funds to read the rest of the tail (if I can wait)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fabulous read! 16 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's difficult to say too much about this book because I don't want to give any spoilers. So all I can say is that Legend continues the story of Dynan (and others) and the battle against evil, one that is gaining more and more power, through corrupted means.

Again it's well written and hooks the reader from the has become more of an addiction to find out what happens next. Needless to say that I am already reading #5, Union, and loving being immersed in these 'adventures'.

Highly recommended series.

Great read, full of depth but easy to follow. Just waiting to be 'discovered' by film producers. May have been better with not so many books though - less books to buy but more satisfying .
