A girl with a past she tries to forget, and a future she can’t even imagine.

Leonie Woodville wants to live an unremarkable life. She wants routine, she wants repetition, she wants predictability. So when she explodes in a blaze of light one morning on the way to her college, it’s enough to put a real crimp in her day.

And things only get weirder…

Leonie learns from her father that she is last of the Pulsar, a phenomenally powerful member of a magical species called the Chosen. It will be her sole duty to protect the Imperium, a governing hierarchy, from all enemies, and to exceed the reputation of the Pulsar before her. So – no pressure there, then.

Leonie is swept away from her rigorous normality and taken to a world of magic. There, she is forced into a ceremony to join her soul to a guardian, Korren, who is both incredibly handsome and intensely troubled, a relationship for which ‘it’s complicated’ just really doesn’t cut it.

But Leonie is soon to learn that this ancient world is no paradise. With violent dissidents intent to overthrow the Imperium, and dark entities with their own agenda, she and Korren find themselves caught in a war where they will have to overcome their differences if they are to survive.

Dare to dream. Dare to hope. Dare to be a legend.


** I received an e-copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange of my honest review **

I read Girl of Myth and Legend at the beginning of the month and it was really cool 😀 . I liked the way is narrated a lot and that we have Korren’s and Leonie’s point of views. My favorites were Korren’s ones because I was able to feel all the power he had too. 😉
The only thing I can say I didn’t enjoy so much was the beginning, I was waiting to see a little bit more of her “normal” life.

I love Leonie so much! I loved that she was so sarcastic and hilarious, her attitude was incredible. ❤ At the same time she was honest, curious and brave when she had to. I didn’t find anything wrong about her. Another great thing about her is that she never gave up, and the way she thinks is extraordinary, always really positive. 🙂
Korren was amazing! I really liked his personality, so deep, determined and courageous. But it were times when I just thought “Man, she has feelings. Could you be a little more comprehensive?” However, I liked him a lot and I could see that he wasn’t all bad. 😛
Oh! The end was espectacular The last quote was fantastic! I loved it and after reading it I just couldn’t stop smiling for an hour.

Girl of Myth and Legend made my days while reading it 89% better 🙌

You should read it if you like suspense, mystery, fantasy, magic, science fiction, paranormal and YA 😊.
