ARC Review: Legion by Rider Jacobs

by Rider Jacobs
Genre: MM Fantasy

Banished to the mortal realm for a crime he didn't commit all Nico wants to do is return home. Legion feels love is weakness, it's an emotion only felt by fools. Answering a bundled summoning attempt Legion's world is turned upside down by the exotic Nico. 

Intrigued by the mortal, Legion finds himself unable to stay away. Refusing to believe he might actually be falling in love he sets out to discover who has cast such a wicked spell on him. Nico has a secret though, one that could end his relationship and destroy his chance to return home.

Mari's Review: 

***ARC provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review.***

The story was very entertaining. Actually, considering the blurb I was expecting something more formal, perhaps. Instead I got a fun, fast-paced story. 

I probably would have liked it more if there had been less scenes of Legion and Nico with others and more focusing solely on them and to have more of a resolution at the end. I felt that the ending was a bit rushed, considering how much the author had focused on other issues. 

Legion was charming, even if at times he appeared quite immature. The dust bunnies bit cracked me up every time! And Nico was likable and had great chemistry with Legion, which is always a plus. 

All in all, a pretty good read. I would definitely read it if the author were to write more in this universe.

Rating: 4.25 Stars!

Raised in a small town in the corner of Kansas, Rider's mother installed a love of books in her. Thanks to her mother she developed a love for all things paranormal at an early age. Her parents always encouraged her to use her imagination and write stories.

When she was 18 she left the small farming community without a stop light and headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. She continued to write but life kept her from actually publishing anything. After ten years in the big city, Rider decided she wanted a much slower paced life and returned to Kansas.

It was here that she met a friend who loved her stories and encouraged her to submit them. 

When not writing Rider loves to read anything she can get her hands on from the Dark taboo erotic books to the lighter Amish romance. She also has an interest in the lost art of pen paling. Putting pen to paper and sharing the good times and the bad through the written word with friends near and far. Rider also loves to travel and while she has been to the tourist attractions she much prefers the hidden gems off the beaten path that few know about. It is these adventures that often find their way into her books.
