Tani’s world has never been peaceful. Torn between the many cultures that meet on the Chorhan Expanse, the greatest threat they now face is an expansionist army of monstrous nonhumans who call themselves the mansthein.
To take her place as a full warrior of her tribe, Tani must travel across the vast grasslands of the Chorhan Expanse. But she has her sights set higher than a mere ritual journey: She wants to uncover a solution to the impending war that threatens her people.
Tani believes that peace may be possible, but there are others on both sides who believe in legends that tell of monsters with zealous devotion. All around her, warriors have their eyes on a glorious victory with no concern for the piles of bodies they'll create on the way.
She will be joined by a killer pretending to be a healer, a mansthein commander struggling with his orders, a thief who pawned her heart of gold, and a strategist exiled from a foreign land. But none of them are the Hero.
It doesn't matter how many shades of gray might exist, some people see only in black and white. And the terrifying truth is that the stories they tell might not be just legends.

An interesting idea, but lacking
The idea of The Legend is interesting.
The characters aren't too well done in my opinion though. There is a lot of emotion between the protagonists, without any real justification for it. Somehow everyone always thinks of Tawny. Which is strange because she doesn't really stand out in anything but being naive. She isn't any prettier, smarter, stronger, or more talented than any other. So why would someone who has met her only shortly think of her a year later and hopr for her survival even though she is an enemy?
Also there are A LOT of plot armor moments where the protagonist is saved literally in the last possible second. Which is definitely not something I like. I'm sure there are other ways to build up some tension.
The world itself also isn't very interesting. The same is true for cultivation/training. The magic system/cultivation lacks depth.
The length of the audio book is very good if you want a lot of time for your money.
My conclusion is that more value was put on quantity than quality. I won't read/listen to a second part, should it be released.
