    • *I received a free ecopy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.*Let me begin by saying that three stars is NOT a bad rating. I really enjoyed this book. Saul, our main character and first person narrator, is a Prince/surgeon who was made a slave over a decade ago when his kingdom was conquered and his parents killed. In that time Saul has been turned into a torturer/assassin for Emperor Solas (the man who killed his family). But he's been plotting and planning his revenge the entire tim [...]


    • Review on my blog, The Fictional ReaderI want to start by stating that I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I don’t really know why. When I first started reading, I was surprised to see this book is written in first person. I just had a look around my shelves and noticed that while the YA fantasy books are sometimes/often written in first person, the adult fantasy book are almost all written in third person? That’s really interesting to me, maybe I’ll write a post on that soon. [...]


    • Prince Saul Baz Sharmin, an Ubrain, has been a slave assigned duties as an apprentice executioner for a decade, until he meets Marcus, a Prylean, leader of a group of revolutionaries against the evil empire of King Solas. When Saul kills his master, the chief executioner Angus, and he and Marcus escape, instead of freedom, they find their troubles only beginning.In the port town of Sagemont, in search of the Crown of Ubrain that will help him restore his brother to the throne and free his people [...]


    • 3.75. The story of the youngest Ubraian prince, enslaved as a boy and forced to become the plaything of the Emperor's Head Torturer is unlikely to start well. And it doesn't. It starts with an act of bloody revenge as Saul, the prince, who has managed to work his way up to his "Master"'s apprentice, slaughters the torturer and manages to slip out of the Palace and make good his escape. He is working with Marcus, the leader of a rebellion who himself had been captured and sent to the dungeon for [...]


    • How to free a nation? When Prince Saul is made a slave and taught to be an assassin he is stripped of his nation, his freedom and even his name. But after years of searching he has finally located an object that can help him restore his lost brother to the throne and nothing and no one will stop him. This was a fun read that was full of adventure and ale-making. The world is different enough from everything else I've read to make it satisfying and the characterization was engaging. It was a worl [...]


    • Disclaimer: I received this book from a first-read giveaway.Though I had to put this book down at the very beginning for work reasons, I finished the bulk of it in one sitting. Paul's writing is immersive and compelling, and you really feel for the characters as the story progresses.At times, due to the complexity of some scenes, it can be hard to follow what everyone is doing (I had to go back and reread a few passages to make sure I was following it correctly), but overall it was a smooth read [...]


    • I received a free copy from Story Cartel.To be honest this year I have not been as active in reading as others.I really loved this book and all of its characters.A bit darker than I am used to but still enjoyable.I always love to find new authors and I hope to read more from Paul in future.I do agree that parts of the book are slow paced.


    • An entertaining and amusing story that draws you in then makes you want to keep on reading. Good characters and plot. On the whole the story gets straight to the point and there is not a whole lot of excess fluff to pad it out. Liked how the authors obvious like of beer and coffee shine through in the story line.


    • I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book and watching the struggles and the fight to overcome slavery and reuniting a kingdom which had been destroyed. I loved the characters and storyline and felt drawn into the story. I can't wait to read book 2.


    • This book was amazing! It drew me right in from the start and kept me there until the last page and then left me wanting for so much more! My favorite kind of book!



    • "A dark gripping story!"This book is a dark story that drops you in at the deep end and starts expanding and explaining as it goes leaving you scratching your head at times but keeps you reading as you learn more.The characters develop slowly but it is worth the wait as the story unfolds. The main characters become full bodied and you find yourself torn as to how to feel about them overall.The performance is fantastic and the narrator gives gravitas to the situation and helps you connect further [...]


    • This book is set in what seems like medieval times, Saul is a slave who used to be a part of the royalty in his city. He was kidnapped and tortured and made to be a slave. While he suffers, he plots his revenge on those who stand in the way between him and the riches of his city. He wants to unite his people and bring back the glory of his city, but first he has to escape and get back to his city. This story was very fascinating, and I liked that it was told from Saul's point of view, it gave me [...]


    • A good read with a not so good heroExcellent read well worth the time to set down and read the series word word word word word word word


    • For full disclosure, I was give this book for free in return for an honest review. Unfortunately while the novel has a lot of potential it ultimately underwhelms. This book reads like the textbook definition of a rushed work. To drop an overused cooking metaphor: "All the ingredients are here. It all just feels under-cooked." Now anyone who is reading this has figured out that this review is somewhat negative. Hopefully I can provide some constructive criticism instead of just pure abuse.This no [...]


    • I REALLY LIKED ITSaul is a prince who was captured and forced into slavery by an emperor who’d conquered his kingdom. We start Saul’s story on the day he escapes his captors and sets off to regain his kingdom’s freedom. The premise is very simple yet I found the story took some rather nice turns.For me, I loved the first 15% of this book and the last 15%. I mean, I really really enjoyed it. Matter of fact, if the middle had been faster paced, I would have easily loved this book. And I bet [...]


    • Dark Legion has all the hallmarks of a quality piece of fantasy fiction. The cover is excellent, the editing is solid and the prose for the most part is of publishable quality. This is high praise for a book that's self-published.The book is told from the first person perspective of assassin/torturer Saul Baz Sharmoun, who displays his vicious streak within the opening pages of the book. Immediate comparisons will spring to mind with the likes of Jorg Ancarth from Mark Lawrence's Broken Empire t [...]


    • Dark Legion is a wild adventure that will keep you turning the page desperate to know what happens next. With a murderous assassin for a main character, I knew that this story would have the anti-hero bent that I've come to love. Saul did not disappoint as a true amoral misfit.The plot is pretty fast-paced and covers a lot of ground. The three main characters are great. The way Kleynhans writes their friendship is Whedon worthy. Who doesn't want a big guy around who can fight like none other but [...]


    • Prince Saul Bal Sharmoun witnessed the murder of his parents at the hands of Emperor Solas. While he and his brother Shakir were made to be slaves without a name. Saul has become apprentice to head torturer. He's killed too many men and women all under the guise of torture but doesn't mean he enjoyed his work. He became an assassin along with his duties as torturer. Saul creates plan of escape for himself and his friend Marcus. Together Saul and Marcus reach Sagemont where their fortunes change [...]


    • I was asked for an honest review of this book. Dark Legion seemed to require a lot of thinking well it did to me, at the start I struggled to get into this book and couldn’t find my pace and was getting distracted. However, the more I read the more I needed to read. I was not sure that I would like the graphic descriptions of violence that the author warned me about, but I found myself not minding as they went hand in hand with the plotline and how the story was unfolding. All I found myself w [...]


    • A promising first book in the Blood of Blood series. I enjoyed the book but it did feel a tad rushed and could have been greatly improved with some editing.The start was slow with lots of information being dumped on the reader which made it feel hard to get into the book. I gave up after the first 50 pages and then got back into it later and then the story really kicked off. The use of magic in the book is well done and varies from other fantasy novels. I loved the darker tone of the book and wh [...]



    • I kind of didn't like this book much. Everything seemed a little bit toonvenient maybe? Easy? Weird? It wasn't too bad, but I guess I might be too old for this kind of fantasy.
