Legend (Area 51, #9)

Book 9 in the Area 51 seriesDonnchadh and Gwalcmai were birthed on a far-flung planet in the Milky Way—a human breeding colony with the purpose of churning out disposable foot soldiers. But the masters of the colony, the Airlia, created humans with one fatal flaw: an insatiable thirst for freedom.Though Donnchadh and Gwalcmai become God-killers in the bloody revolt against their seemingly omnipotent creators and captors, their planet is already...

    Technically, this is the 9th and final novel in the Area 51 series. I say “technically” because the actual series ended with the 7th book while numbers 8 and 9 are more like separate but supporting novels for the larger series.This one really amounts to a victory lap for the whole series. Given that “Area 51” is part of the title of every book in this series, I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that aliens are involved. Presumably any...

    One of the most intriguing series I have read to dateAfter reading the Area 51 Nightstalker series, I stayed reading The Area 51 saga.I was carried away into this vast world of myths and legends that were not as they seem our so I thought. I was riveted from the first book Area 51 and drawn through every epic mythological, (religious), and legendary relic of history and time. Every, story or legend has some basis in fact. This saga explores the p...

    I thought the concept behind the story was great - two different alien races fighting it out on planet earth w/o humans knowing about it. The plot ties in the city of Atlantis, King Arthur and the Knight of the Round Table, Merlin, etc. I haven't read a science fiction story in a while, so it was a nice change of pace. That said, the story concept was probably better than the actual story, but a fun/easy read anyway.

    I really enjoyed this book. Being the 9Th in the Area 51 series, it tied up loose ends. It takes you through the lives of the central characters Donnchadh and Gwalcmai from the beginning from them leaving the own planet and arriving on Earth.

    A great post story to wrap up loose ends and to see another perspective on the war with the aliens.

    Books 8 and 9 = TOTALLY UNNECESSARYOMG — I am SOOOOOO glad this Series has finally ended; Books #8 and #9 were simply collateral damage and unnecessary efforts.This Series started out well, and the first few books were a good tale and amusing SciFi stories. After THAT, they started to go downhill, and just dragged out (and ruined?) a good plot.I am numb from having read all 9 books, and can only recommend others NOT do so ... stop when you unde...

    Creative, but felt like the author was trying to squeeze just one more book out of a series that's already gone on long enough.

    It would be nice to give this only 2 1/2 starts but I'll let it be bumped up to three. An interesting Si-Fi concept which was a quick read, but there are just gapping plot holes that are never addressed, which if you put any thought into the universe being presented to you tears the who thing apart. (which I guess maybe could be addressed one of the other numerous books in this series, it however doesn't change the fact that this book doesn't sta...

    Sadly, I really didn't enjoy this Area 51 book. It just seemed to have no purpose. I kept waiting for something new, something interesting - anything to add to the overall series, but nope. Sadly, this just felt like the author writing one more book to bilk some more money out of the series. The Arthur re-hash is so overdone that even though I love King Arthur tales, I found this version to be plain silly. And, the Moses/Aaron stuff was frankly i...

    The ninth book of the Area 51 series. With the completion of the main storyline ending with book seven of the series, this book is really a self-contained novel that tells the real story of the character Dr Duncan. It begins on another planet, and continues on Earth beginning first with the Airlia civilization at Atlantis, and ends with the events that take place in England during the time of King Aurthur that were partially described in the earl...

    A culmination of the series into one book.From book 1 to book 9 this book gives an overview of the other books. Airlia ruce comes into being. Donnchadh and Gwailmai ( spelling may not be accurate) help to deliver their planet from the Airlia and travel to earth to help humans progress to the point of delivering themselves from same fate. Great book as are all the others. Must read for sci-fi buffs.

    Once again the rating is more a matter of preference. I read this book for series completeness before moving on to the new ones. But although the stories in this book are interesting, I already know the total end result from having read the rest of the series, so it is more filler than anything else.

    Loved it, although starting with book #9 probably wasn't a good idea; I hope it doesn't ruin the previous 8 books for me now that I want to read them. All credit goes to my brother Michael-Andrew for letting me borrow the book.

    The backstory to the rest of the series. Good tie in and it explains a lot

    An interesting book. At times the plot was drawn out. But, a fascinating mix of sci-fi, history, literature, and religion. Helped me to make sense of the previous Area 51 book I read.
