Can love really conquer all?âBook Six in Katy Evansâs breakout New York Times bestselling series that began with REAL. Maverick âThe Avengerâ Cage wants to rise to the top and become a legend in the ring. Though he keeps his identity well guarded, heâs 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. Heâs got a personal score to settle with the Undergroundâs one and only Remington âRiptideâ Tate. As Mav trains, he meets a young girlâthe only other new person in the townâand sparks fly. When things get heated between them, he finds out sheâs none other than Reese Dumas, the cousin of Remington Tateâs wife. A girl whoâs supposed to root against him and a girl heâs supposed to stay away from. But Mav fights for the woman in his heart and the monsters in his blood. The worldâs eyes are on them, and the victor will go down in history as the ultimate fighting championâthe ultimate LEGEND.
When I (or letÂ´s say we) started blogging, I always dreamed of taking part in book tours for authors like Katy Evans. I read the other books of this series months, probably by now years, ago. At a time when she herself was a pretty unknown author (and what a talented one….)!
Some weeks ago we received an ARC for a book by Jodi Ellen Malpas who is on “this list” as well. Now being able to read “Legend” by Katy Evans in advance is the best present you could give to our blog. Thank you for this.
So to come back to the book….
I know what Katy Evans can do to you. She is one of these authors that can rip your chest apart, squeeze your heart until itÂ´s nothing but a red puddle of blood and swallow it. And this is what she did with this book to me as well! You rarely see authors that are able to create what Katy created with this or the other books of the series.
She , again, created some of the deepest, most unique characters you can find while combining it with other characters from previous book. And those characters she succesfully put into a detailled and beautifully described setting that makes you feel like you are part of the story. A story that makes sense. A story that never left me bored. A story that touched me from the very first until the very last page.
This book is so precious. While reading it you want to take your time, because you donÂ´t want to finish it. But this is what you just have to. Because you have no other choice.
Yes, this is how good this book is. So take a look yourself.
I am certain: finding a book that is so real is almost impossible!
