Release Day Review: Legend by Katy Evans

Legend by Katy Evans

Legend by Katy Evans
Series: Real #6 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: February 9th 2016
Links: EbookPaperback • AudibleGoodreads

Can love really conquer all?—Book Six in Katy Evans’s breakout New York Times bestselling series that began with REAL.

Maverick “The Avenger” Cage wants to rise to the top and become a legend in the ring. Though he keeps his identity well guarded, he’s known on the fighting circuit as the new kid with a chip on his shoulder and a tattoo on his back that marks him as trouble. He’s got a personal score to settle with the Underground’s one and only Remington “Riptide” Tate.

As Mav trains, he meets a young girl—the only other new person in the town—and sparks fly. When things get heated between them, he finds out she’s none other than Reese Dumas, the cousin of Remington Tate’s wife. A girl who’s supposed to root against him and a girl he’s supposed to stay away from.

But Mav fights for the woman in his heart and the monsters in his blood. The world’s eyes are on them, and the victor will go down in history as the ultimate fighting champion—the ultimate LEGEND.

“I want to be a legend.”

AHHHH!!!!! I’ve already found my favorite book of 2016 so far – Katy Evans’ Legend is BRILLIANT!! Just the PERFECT ending to a series I utterly adore. Katy wows me every time I read one of her books, but Legend just might be my favorite of hers yet. Seriously, I loved everything about Legend so. much. From the adorable heroine, to the alpha hero, to the epic ending… This book was everything I expected and more. If you’re a fan of the Real series, you absolutely need to get your hands on this final book!

For the summer, Reese Dumas is moving in with her cousin Brooke, Brooke’s husband Remy, and their son Racer. Reese is there to babysit Racer, but she’s also there to basically find herself. She has issues with self-esteem and confidence, so she wants to take the time with the Tates to work on herself, mentally and physically. And it’s at a gym where she meets Maverick, a fighter with whom she forms an indelible connection. He’s gorgeous, quiet, and a little mysterious, and all Reese wants to do is unravel every piece of him the way he does her.

He gives me this rebel vibe. Like he’d rather say I’m sorry than may I, and maybe not even the “sorry” at all. There’s a fierce passion in his features and a kindled fire in his eyes. I admire passionate people. People who burn out everyone around them, they’re so passionate, they want so much, they crave so much.

Maverick “The Avenger” Cage is on a mission of his own to fight in the Underground and work his way up to the top and become the champion. He wants to prove that he’s worth more than what he got from his neglectful father and that he’s an even better fighter than his father was. My heart fell for Maverick right from the start – he’s a little rough around the edges, but he’s got the biggest heart, and the determination and strength within him had me in awe.

Maverick and Reese. Reese and Maverick. I loved these two individually and I loved these two together. And heads up, they are utter PERFECTION together. Their powerful love story gripped my heart and didn’t let go even after I finished the book. Katy Evans knows how to write love in its most primal, raw, intense way – I was completely swept away by Reese and Maverick’s love for one another.

I’m memorizing her. It’ll take me forever, but I’m dedicated and I want to memorize every tiny inch and pore with my eyes and my fingers and my tongue.

I’m always such a sucker for Katy Evans’ alpha heroes, and Maverick is just breath-taking. I’m obsessed with him. Not only is he fiercely dedicated to becoming the champion, his love and devotion for Reese blow me away. When he falls, he falls so hard – Maverick is the sweetest alpha-male I’ve ever read!

“You’re priceless. Gold. Not gold, you’re the whole fucking mine to me. Do you know that?”

What surprised me in this book was the connection Maverick also forms with Remy. Remy is the current champion of the Underground, but Maverick is the only one to come close to Remy’s fighting level. As the two of them bond over their practice fights together, Remy becomes somewhat of a father-figure to Maverick. Every scene with the two of them together had me full-on smiling because there was just something wonderful and inspiring how they pushed each other to become the best fighter and man they could be.

We come full circle in the series with the epic ending in Legend. I honestly can’t imagine a more perfect ending for the series. This book is perfection – I swooned, I sighed, I gasped… I felt every word of Legend. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll be happy to know there is lots of Remy, Brooke, and Racer, both from Reese and Maverick’s perspectives. And if you haven’t read the series yet, you’re missing out on some powerful love stories and swoony, sexy alpha-males. It’s a bittersweet ending for sure that the series is over, but only Katy Evans could have me finishing Legend with a giddy smile on my face.

Now here’s an excerpt from Legend! ❤

SEATTLE

Maverick

‘Not in a million years, kid.’

‘No.’

‘NOT INTERESTED.’

‘Get the fuck out of my face!’

Four cities in two days, and more doors slammed in my face than I can count. I sling my backpack over my shoulder and scratch another name from my list.

Hopping on to a bus and hopping off thirty minutes later, I scan the mix of both commercial and apartment numbers down the block, then knock on my last door.

“Coach Hennesy?”

He’s a tall man, his hair like pepper, clad in sweats, with a yellow timer hanging from his neck. He gives me a questioning look.

“I’m your next champion.”

He laughs, but then he must see something on my face. In my stance. Thirst, resoluteness, guts. Maybe I’m wearing my balls in my eyes. He falls sober and swings the door wide-open. “Come on in.”

He doesn’t ask for my name.

I guess with one look, he knows he’ll find my name in the dictionary, right next to “determined.”

He leads me to his garage. “Where’d you train before?” he asks.

“Self-taught. I watch videos.”

He scoffs, then shrugs. “Okay, let’s see what you’ve got.”

I eye the equipment across the room. The heavy bag hangs from the ceiling, the leather worn from other fighters before me. There’s a boxing dummy at the corner. Speed bag. Weights. A whole private gym set up here. I drop both my bags, then zip open my backpack and start to put on the gloves without bothering to remove my hoodie.

“Take that off; I need to know what you’ve got. Need to see your form,” Hennesy says.

I clench my jaw. Slowly unzip my hoodie. Take it off and glance past my shoulder, shifting to keep my back from the coach’s view. The guy is clearing the fighting area. Good. We can get down to business. He walks to me when I face him.

“Give it over.” I hand him my hoodie and he tosses it aside, then crosses his arms and looks at me. “Speedball first.”

I inhale, position myself before the speedball, and hit. Wham.

I keep on hitting, lightning fast, my fists making the bag fly.

I would have warmed up first, but I’ve been doing this for days, and I won’t stop until I’ve got myself a coach—and not even then.

I’ve got momentum now, and I pick up speed, my arms moving back and forth, working the speed bag until it’s moving so fast you can’t even see it.

I’m starting to sweat; it’s stuffy in here, but I can’t stop. I need him to take me on. I need one yes to get me in the ring. Just one yes and I’ll do the rest.

“Time.” Hennesy stops me. He signals to the boxing dummy and the heavy bag. “Let’s see you pound the bag.”

I swing out and slam my knuckles on the bag, putting everything into my fists. Thack, thump, thud.

Hennesy’s composure starts to crumble with excitement. “Holy shit, boy!”

I’m getting in to it. I’m in the zone—where it’s just me, the leather brown bag, my fists, and nothing else but slamming the spot I’m looking at.

“I’ve seen enough.” He stops the bag from swinging. His eyes glassy. “Fill this out.”

I pull off my right glove and grab a pen as he slaps a paper onto a desk at the corner. I bend down to fill out my name and contact information and realize, too late, that I exposed the tattoo on my back.

“You’re his boy.”

I freeze midsignature.

A second ticks by. Then two.

I slowly set the pen down and take one last look at the paper. I might not get to fill it out after all. I turn.

His face has paled.

I wait it out for a few beats. Maybe he’s different. Maybe he can deal with it.

He tosses my jacket at me. “Get out. Nobody wants to see you fight.”

I frown fiercely as I catch my jacket in my fist and edge forward, equally mad now. “That’s too damn bad. ’Cause I’m fighting anyway.”

I keep my eyes on him as I pull off my left glove, shove my arms into my hoodie, and zip up.

I walk out and the door slams behind me. I clench my jaw, and I shove my gloves into my bag and spot the old, black gloves inside too. I push them down into the bottom of the duffel bag and zip it up.

The season starts in a week and a half. No coach? No fight. I can’t even get into a gym.

But I won’t let anyone or anything keep me from the ring.

I pick up a penny from the ground.

And I spot a girl in workout clothes across the street, tying her shoelaces. She’s a step away from the gym door. I straighten, pull my hoodie over my head, and cross the street, following after her like I belong.

Joint Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu

Prodigy_Marie_Lu_Book

Prodigy by Marie Lu
Series: Legend #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: January 29th 2013
Purchase: Ebook • Hardcover • Paperback

June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengeance, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?

In this highly-anticipated sequel, Lu delivers a breathtaking thriller with high stakes and cinematic action.

The three of us have JUST finished the incredible Prodigy by Marie Lu, and HOLY SMOKES. It. Was. Amazing. We’ll try not to spoil anything in Prodigy, but there may be some spoilers from Legend.

Shirley here.

hey guys! Some of you may or may not know that my two favorite genres are Contemporary and Dystopian novels! ANYWAYS.
CAN I JUST WARN YOU THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE SOME SERIOUS CAPS LOCK. So. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT MARIE LU DID THIS TO US, THIS IS SO UNFAIR AND SO CRUEL OF HER I JUST; STOP.

So unlike Lacey down there, I already had HIGHH expectations on Prodigy and was SUPER excited to read it and it did NOT disappoint! Well. It disappointed but more of the ugh why did it haVE TO END LIKE THIS T_T BUT it was beautifully written and LITERALLY. THERE WAS ACTION FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END.

& FORREAL CAN TESS JUST GTFO SHE IS SO ANNOYING AND IS LIKE A WHINY LITTLE GIRL THAT JUST NEEDS TO STOP OKAY AND GET OVER HER LITTLE CRUSH ON DAY BECAUSE IT’S ALL ABOUT DAY AND JUNE (who are MTB and my OTP) LIKE JFC PLEASE LEAVEEEEE.

So although all throughout the book there was action, THE END. LIKE THE LAST 100 OR SO PAGES IS WHERE IT’S LIKE SUPER EXTREME ACTION AND INTENSITY. NO JOKE. If you’ve read the book, YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN. But I honestly canNOT wait until Champion (Legend #3) comes out and I’m so glad that it’s coming out this year and Marie Lu isn’t making us wait another year.

I also expected to seriously hate Anden, but I didn’t! He’s actually such a sweet guy, and he’s really nice to June (& it’s totally obvious he’s into her). But I’m not FOR Anden + June you know? I’m for Day + June. I JUST CAN’T. ANDEN’S CUTE AND ALL, BUT I DON’T WANT HIM WITH JUNE LIKE I DON’T CARE IF YOU’RE THE EMPEROR, BUT DON’T STEAL DAY’S GIRL.
btw, Day is SO badass omg AND JUNE AND KAEDE TOO I CAN’T BELIEVE I ALMOST FORGOT KAEDE. She was AMAZING GAHHHH. I cried so much in this book T_T

Thank the laaawwddd that there’s another book (although it’s the last one =( ) because this HAS to end well. IT HAS TO.

Lacey here.

OH. MY. GOD. MY HEART IS BREAKING INTO A THOUSAND PIECES RIGHT NOW AND I DON’T THINK IT’LL BE FIXED UNTIL CHAMPION (book #3) COMES OUT. I did not anticipate this. I seriously had no idea that MARIE LU WOULD END UP RIPPING MY HEART OUT OVER THE END OF PRODIGY. God. GOD. I just can’t handle this. Marie Lu, why would you do this to me???

I actually thought I wouldn’t really like Prodigy, or at least as much as I liked the first book. But, oh, silly me. I ended up LOVING it. Why do I always keep doubting second books/sequels? Marie Lu must’ve been like, HA! GOTCHA, Lacey! Okay, not really, but I’ll get to the point. Which is that Prodigy is an amazing sequel that is action-packed and seriously badass and epic. June and Day are outstanding, and I ended up loving them so much more after finishing Prodigy than I already did in Legend.

The beginning of the book though, was not as epic as the last 30% of the book. That was part of why I didn’t think Prodigy would be as good as Legend. Day and June keep having doubts about one another, about where their loyalties lie, and especially about their precarious relationship. But Day is the one who mostly has second thoughts because of evil Tess. This girl. To put it bluntly, I hate Tess. She has this annoying crush on Day and is very jealous of June. And it was SO FRUSTRATING to see Day taking in the spiteful things Tess says and almost ruining his relationship with June. Because June and Day? They’re SO MTB. Meant to be. Period.

Metias, June’s brother, is a steady part of June’s story, even though he has died. But I LOVE Metias. From June’s flashbacks and how he treated her, he seemed like the sweetest, most amazing older brother. And I was devastated when he died in Legend. In Prodigy, I never got tired of the many times June mentions Metias, because it’s understandable why she does. June looked up to him and loved him so much, and I might have gotten a little teary-eyed when June finally fully realized that her beloved older brother would never be coming back to see her and care for her again.

Okay, let me just tell you that if you think the beginning of Prodigy is slow, you should keep reading. Because you will not be disappointed. The last 30% of the book is freaking unbelievably good. I was shouting my butt off and saying “Oh my god” so many times because June and Day are badass. They finally take serious action and fight for what they believe is right. And Day is on fire when he does this. Man, whew. He is SO hot, especially when he makes this speech to the people of the Republic. I fell completely in love with him then.

But. The. Ending. Fair warning if you haven’t read Prodigy: the ending will gut you. Everything is epic and amazing and uplifting and then BAM. Everything goes down the drain. I can’t say anything without spoiling, but oh my god, I was just crying inside. I was seriously screaming once I finished the book. I had to go call Shirley and Facebook message Catherine to rant about how UNFAIR the ending is. I just hope that Champion will be as incredible as the first two books and that everything will turn out fine in the very end.

Cathy here.

OH MY GOODNESS. I finished this book at one in the morning last Saturday (but due to school and whatnots I couldn’t write until now) AND I WAS DYING. I seriously wanted to throw this book at the wall, SCREAM MY HEART OUT, or punch something because I WAS SO DANG ANGRY. NO NOT ANGRY. I WAS FURIOUS. Like WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING TO MY EMOTIONS MARIE LU?!?! GAHHH. I wanted to bawl my eyes out because I was that depressed, and I was ranting to Shirley and Lacey like nonstop! And then Lacey and I were talking about it in our Lang class, and our teacher thought we were up to no good since we were huddling “suspiciously” in the corner, HAHA. 😉

Anyways, I LOVED this book because there was action NONSTOP. Well actually, the beginning of the book was kind of slow, but I am so glad I kept reading because the novel just got so incredibly intense. Like my heart was racing a mile a second! Anyways, back to the beginning of the book; it’s mainly about Day and June questioning their loyalties (whether to the Republic or to the Rebellion), and their relationship. And I was getting SO ANNOYED AND ANGRY BY TESS! I really liked her in the first book because I thought, “Aw she’s like Day’s little sister and she’s so incredibly cute because she always helps him and cares for him.” And then in this book all I can think is, “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING TESS?!” Okay, it wasn’t that much of a surprise when she develops romantic feelings for Day, because I mean, who wouldn’t? You’d have to be heartless not to. :\ But Tess was so jealous of June that she kept influencing Day’s thoughts about June. And then I was just thinking, “DON’T LISTEN TO HER DAY. SHE’S JUST JEALOUS!! GAHHH!” I mean, Tess shouldn’t have tried to tear Day and June apart because if it weren’t for June, Kaede would have probably killed or at least seriously hurt Tess in some way, shape, or form. And when Tess said something along the lines of (I can’t remember the exact quoting.) “June will break your heart into a million pieces,” to Day, I was just like, “NO. ME, LACEY AND SHIRLEY WILL BREAK YOU INTO A MILLION PIECES IF YOU KEEP TRYING TO TEAR ONE OF THE MOST PERFECT COUPLES EVER ON EARTH APART.” GOODNESS, she got on my nerves.

Speaking of Kaede, OH MY GOSH. I love her so much! She’s so tough, funny, sarcastic and witty. Even though we didn’t see too much of her in the first book, she plays a pretty big role here in Prodigy, so she’s pretty awesome. Another character that I love? METIAS. Oh my gosh, he’s the cutest older brother EVER. I LOVED him, and I was SO DEVASTATED when he died in Legend. But he still’s here in spirit in Prodigy, and I’m just like, Thank you, Marie Lu for keeping an incredibly awesome guy in the book even though he’s dead. And the new stuff we learn about him was MIND-BLOWING. Well apparently not for Lacey, ahem. GOSH, such a know it all, huh Lacey? HAHA, JK. But I was pretty shocked so. Just be prepared. (: It’s pretty heart-breaking too. 😥 Makes you hate Thomas even more if that’s possible. Gosh CAN HE JUST DIE ALREADY.

And ANDEN?! WOW. Like  BACK OFF, OKAY ANDEN? GET AWAY FROM JUNE BECAUSE SHE IS WITH DAY. Anden is actually pretty nice, and much different in terms of his ideals, and actually just his overall personality, from his corrupt father. So I think he’d make a pretty good Leader of the Republic, but he was so UGHH. Like STOP MAKING A MOVE ON JUNE. But then, both Day and June had to deal with people who liked them in that way. (Day-Tess, June-Anden) So I was mad at both of them. I was angry throughout so much of this book! I even called Lacey at one point and I was just telling her I kind of didn’t want to keep reading because I was getting so mad at the both of them and I was so darn scared of what was going to come next! But she persuaded me to keep reading, so I did!

AND WELL. I read until the very end. AND MY HEART DIED. LIKE WHAT THE?! AGH, I wanted to burst into tears and curl up into a ball and just cry my eyes out. Trust me, when you read the ending, you’ll want to hurl the book at the wall because it’s SO UNFAIR. Like, why did Marie Lu have to do this to us?! Even her recent tumblr status said, “life ruiner.” YES, Marie Lu, you are a life ruiner, because you CRUSHED. OUR. SOULS. 😥

Lacey, Shirley and I came up with all sorts of possibilities as to how the series would pan out, and you know me with my love for “happily ever afters,” so that’s what I’m hoping for! But we also came up with some pretty sad stuff so we’re hoping that doesn’t happen. Yet as we all pointed out, there’s still hope that all will end well in Champion! I can’t wait! ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER. ❤
