Waiting on Wednesday: Legion - Julie Kagawa

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on Legion by Julie Kagawa.

Julie Kagawa
Series: Talon, #4
Release Date: April 25,  2017
Publisher: Mira Ink
Waited on by: Sam

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.

It's no secret, that I am a Kagawa fan. Her Iron Fey series remains one of my favorites, and Talon is on its way to joining that list. 

I loved book 1 and 2. Both were 5-star reads for me. So, when Soldier came out, I was really excited to read, what I thought, was the final book in the series. Lo and behold, there will be 5 books! You can see why I was sort of put off when the book ended in a very rude cliffy. Couple that, with the fact that my ship appeared to be sinking, you can see why I only gave the third book 4.5-stars.

Even after all of that, I still NEED this book. Kagawa often does this. She creates a situation, which breaks your heart a little or leaves you angry, but after reading a bunch of her books, I have grown to trust that this all happened for a good reason. So, I will eagerly await Legion, and keep my fingers crossed that I get those answers I so desperately seek. 

What are you waiting on?
Let us know in the comments!


  1. I haven't read any of Julie Kagawa's books, but this sounds interesting!

    Here’s my WoW !

    1. I LOVE Kagawa's books! I devoured the Iron Fey series, and was terribly sad when it ended. This one is more paranormal than fantasy, but it's rich with dragon-culture.

  2. I still have not read anything by Julie Kagawa! I had planned to make this series the first of hers that I would read, but I haven't gotten around to reading any of the books. I thought it was going to be a trilogy, LOL. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Sam. =)

    1. My first Kagawa book was The Iron King, and once I started, I couldn't stop. This one is different, since it is set in our contemporary world, but DRAGONS! You have a great week too.

  3. I'm so behind on this series---I haven't read past the first book. I might have to just wait for book #5 and then binge-read them. :-)

    1. Not a terrible idea, but I had to know what was going on with my ship. =P
