Matt Archer: Legend (Matt Archer # 3)
by Kendra C. Highley
When Matt Archer was fourteen, he was chosen—by a magic, spirit-inhabited knife—to hunt monsters with a special paranormal division of the Army. When he was fifteen, he was thrown into a global war the rest of the world didn’t know existed.

Now Matt’s sixteen and the war has cost him more than he ever thought it would. He’s also learned that the knife-spirits have an agenda he doesn’t totally agree with. The only problem? The spirits have the upper hand, and they plan to control the fight—and Matt.

Then things get worse: the next lunar eclipse cycle is starting, a prominent physicist has gone missing, and Matt’s best friend is thinking about quitting the team. If he loses Will—after everyone else he’s lost—Matt’s not sure how he’ll fight alone.

As the source of his nightmares starts to creep out of the shadows, Matt knows he’ll need all the help he can get…because being alone could prove deadly.

My Review:
Holy crap do I love these Matt Archer books!!!  With every installment I'm shocked by the "more-ness" of it all!  Kendra Highley brings her A-game every time, but then manages to step it up even .... well, more!!!  There's more crazy military action, more freak-tastic monsters, more high school drama (in a good way) and more twists and turns than your fav roller coaster!

In Legend, we see even more depth to the characters we've come to adore.  Will especially develops and some really exciting things happen with him in the latter part of the book.  Some of which I had my suspicions while others totally threw me.  Matt is his witty, hilarious self, but with more maturity and world-weariness that really adds to his complexity.  He's also given his knife spirit the nickname Tink which is so freakin perfect!

The plot continues to thicken with more bumps and turns as we are given more insight into the origins of the monster issue.  The action is crazy-sauce intense and plentiful!  Just when you think it's all good -- wham! -- the battle burns on!!!  And then, right at the end, a huge bomb is dropped on us (no, not a literal one)!  My jaw fell open.  Just you wait and see what those last sentences hold!

I'm stoked to tell you there's two more Matt books to come.  I will be emailing the author daily for release updates .... tee hee hee!  **evil giggle**

Cover Art:
The covers for the Matt Archer series are just what they should be and Legend's cover is no different!  This cover tells us we are in for an action-packed and suspenseful adventure.  And it is sooooo right!

Ready for a giveaway?!??!  I know you are!!!!  Good Luck!
