Legion is a promising first solo book from Rider Jacobs and I will definitely be following her to see what Ms Jacob releases next. Legion second in line to the throne of his people. He is known for his vanity as well as his coldness and dark heart. Nico has been banished from his world for a crime he did not commit. Forced to live as an immortal in a mortal world Nico endures much cruelty and punishment as he does what is needed to care for himself. Legion's attention is drawn when he hears someone trying to summons him. Normally he wouldn't worry about these lowly mortals or 'dust bunnies' as he refers to them but there is something about his voice that makes Legion compelled to find out more. Nico never expects his summonsing to work but he desperately wants to return home so when Legion appeared Nico is unsure how to react. When Legion and Nico first meet the attraction is undeniable and they are more than willing to explore but they have much to learn about each other and there are many secrets to be revealed. One secret alone has the potential to stop Nico from ever going home and destroy Legion forever. Legion is a m/m romance with strong language and graphic sexual content and is not for the faint at heart. However in saying that it has well developed characters and a good storyline that will keep you reading until the very end.
I think that the more I read the more I'm reminded that while I love reading just about everything... fantasy and paranormal fiction and romance is just my favorite. Was Legion the best fantasy romance I've read? No. But, I still have to say I was totally drawn into the story. I found myself comparing it slightly to the story of Thor and Loki. (Legion being Loki). When their father is killed, Loki's brother Adoni takes on the role of king of the majority of the 29 realms... while Legion battles and wins control of the dark realms (9 of the 29). There's some sibling rivalry... but it's not really a huge part of the story. I love all of the twists and connections between Legion and Nico. As Nico's story is told I found myself really enjoying his character. His banishment experience could have been a novel in itself. Legion had his own full character development. He was a tough character to like in the beginning of the story. But, learning how he become who he was really had me rooting for him to find a true love.
