Far, far away, hidden on Insula Sacra—Island of the Accursed— lives a forgotten world of man and beast.


Damned by the Gods, and forced to live in everlasting darkness, they continue to fight a war that has long since been buried in time.
With each rise and fall of the cursed moon, they are reminded of all they’ve lost.

The King, however, cannot rise without his Queen—both blessed with the mark of the Gods, they must end the war to save them all.
Or so the legend says…

Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Um wow. Legend is absolutely amazing! I kinda wanna scream from the rooftops to grab Legend and read it. I fell in love with the way M.R. Leahy created this fairytale. It’s not a common one, so it was different and unique. I fell in love with the beauty of story as well. From start to finish Klayton, Kala, Karzan, and Janey held my heart.

Literally through darkness and impossibility, Karzan and Janey found each other. Together they have to beat back the darkness to make Insula Sacra and it’s people whole again. Couldn’t ask for a better Tarzan retelling!

Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

What an amazing re-telling to this fairy tale. As with all the stories in this collection we get a darker version. This is a short and no sweet re-telling of Tarzan and Jane. The little twist the author puts in was a fantastic idea in my mind.
Karzan and Janey’s story was written in the stars long before they came to be. What happens when two souls destined to be together finally unite? The legend has been written in the stars, and for many moons, and many have waited to see if what the Gods have said will come true. I’m telling you, you do not want to miss out on a love as true as theirs. Their destiny is a beautiful story that everyone should read.


“They abandoned us, cursed us. An endless war, a dying race…the prophecy states that once united, the chosen one, bearing the mark of the gods, will bring forth the one true king.” Balling my hand into a fist, I turn and face the great room. “I will be that King. No matter what it takes, no matter how many people must burn to make it so, we will rise again and this time, not even the Gods will be able to stop us.”
