Legion by Julie Kagawa | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To Legion by Julie Kagawa?

Legion by Julie Kagawa is the fourth book in her Talon series — which is her series of dragon books. I very much enjoyed the first book. I feel like I thought the second and third books were alright too. Anyways, I kind of lost steam with reading these books. Yet, seeing Legion available on Hoopla sort of reignited that steam. I added it and instead of waiting and listening to the audiobooks in order of adding, I made this one a priority. After all, I am SO close to finishing this series!

What’s The Story Here?

Legion picks up right after Soldier. If you haven’t read Soldier, you should probably stop reading this review if you don’t want to be spoiled. Okay, so Dante is still with the shady Talon organization. Ember is hanging out with the rogues – including Riley. Also, she’s with ex-St. George soldier Garrett. Garrett was about to die but then he received a transfusion of dragon blood, so he’s basically okay now. Unfortunately for everyone not in Talon, things are about to come to a head. Talon is about to bring their “legion” to the door of the rogues. You see, they have generated this army of mindless hatchlings and SO MANY of them. Also there’s this big secret about Ember that is revealed. Plus the Elder Wyrm continues to be a total asshole. And that’s really the quickest I can sum this up.

How Did I Like Legion?

So, of the books in the Talon series, this one was not my favorite. I mean, I liked that there’s a TON of action. In addition, we got to see what Talon’s intentions were with all those hatchlings. I didn’t feel as though there was as much romance with this book. That’s fine, not every book needs it. However, that was kind of one of the original interesting things that I read this series for. I also did not feel as though there was any big resolution or that the plot moved forward in a significant way. Actually, I am at the point where I am probably just going to give up on this series as I have no obligation to finish it and many other competing books for my attention.

How’s The Narration?

So, this is the first of the series that I have listened to via audiobook. AND I LIKED IT. I mean, there are four different narrators – including old favorite MacLeod Andrews. For real, I just love his narration and am always pleased when a book I want to read is narrated by him. The full group of narrators are MacLeod Andrews, Caitlin Davies, Chris Patton, and Tristan Morris. Each narrator does a decent job and takes on a specific character and narrates all of their point of view chapters. Overall, audiobook is decent and again, I have zero things to complain about with the audio of Legion.
