“Amazing world building with compelling characters. Highly recommended.” 

“This book was such a ride! If you're into wildly imaginative world-building and smart-talking characters, The Night of Legends would be up your alley. The prose is witty and the compelling voice made this a fun read that ended too soon.” 

Journalist Leslie W, author of The Night of Legends, is a past mentee of the National Arts Council of Singapore's annual fiction programme - and it shows. She never lets slip her command of the narrative throughout this gripping novel. The cinematic prose, deft world-building, and gripping plot will keep you turning the pages in double-quick time as the challenges (and stakes) for Keix and her friends become evident and increasingly dire. 

     A compelling blend of sci-fi, dystopian, and fantasy, The Night of Legends will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. Certainly Leslie W's novel is as good as anything I have read by Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth.” 

The Night of Legends is an action-packed, speculative adventure that takes its influences from fantasy role-playing games, supernatural stories, and real-world dilemmas. [...] I'm looking forward to the expansion of this world.” 

What book reviewers on Instagram say

“TNOL delivered in every sense of the word:
There was no boring moment. It’s page after page of thrills and twists.
The book was weaved together in a completely beautiful yet straightforward manner.
Breathless in its exploration of just how you know whom to trust.”

“I think the ability of Leslie to envelop an entire, well rounded story into around 300 pages speaks volumes of the writing. This book and the background definitely gave me vibes of The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner, which I loved since those were some of my favourites!”

“With consummate writing skill, Leslie crafts her story, step-by-step by beginning at rescuing Keix (our protagonist) from Atros's imprisonment; to her finding her identity and discovering the hidden agenda of Atros and people around her.”

“In this dystopian world that has elements of ghosts and magic, @lesliewwrites leads us through cool fight scenes, snarky repartee and shadowy motivations. [...] I would recommend this book to YA fans who enjoy reading the Divergent/Shadow of the Bone/ similar kinds of series as this was a lovely brief escape.”

“A couple of pages in and I am already intrigued because of the descriptive writing. It felt like I was there with the characters, witnessing the reawakening of Keix. [...] The plot itself is so thrilling, fun, and video game-like which is awesome.”

“Right from the start, you are pulled into action. I had no time to think about what was happening as I was reading. I felt as though I was part of the story, moving very fast but not knowing what is happening and I don’t mean this in a bad way. As the story continues, all of my queries were slowly answered which helps me put two and two together. I really love how the story connected overall and I really enjoyed reading this but why did it end so soon? That ending…I need to know! 🙈🙊🙈

“i found the world building incredibly cool! the fact that the beings mentioned in TNOL are just purely fiction makes it even more incredible! i felt like i was reading a take on a type of mythology, such as how Madeline Miller's TSOA was her take on Greek mythology. there are so many mythical beings, Odats, Kulcans, Ifarls and more! the names for each species of being is really cool as well ^-^”

“The writing flows well and the story is fast-paced and action-packed. There were also a number of twists and turns I wasn’t expecting! As a heavy romance reader, the last bit made me very happy. The story ended in a manner that totally screams for a sequel. I’m so glad there’s one in the works. Looking forward to it! If you enjoy fantasy thrillers, do check it out!”

@lesliewwrites novel ‘The Night of Legends’ is an action packed fantasy young adult novel that will have you hooked from the first few pages! Perfect for a quick read! I cannot believe that ending!! Wayyyyyyy to shock a reader! I absolutely adore the world and the characters that @lesliewwrites has created and I cannot wait to read more of her work!”

“TNOL is out of this world: some parts urban, some parts fantasy, some parts sci-fi, some parts magical and all parts awesome!

“What I liked:

• I'm constantly kept on my toes. I mean come on ; the story started off with our MC waking up after TWO YEARS spent in a facility, unconscious. What happened? How did she end up there?
• Multiple twists! Just what I like. Or rather, revelations. We love reading about betrayals 😈

“Curiosity level: Like Katniss Everdeen in a Maze Runner world 🌎[...] whilst reading I couldn’t shake off the feeling like it’s reminiscent of something I’ve watched or read before, like Maze Runner but with a Katniss Everdeen protagonist.


“From the get go, I found myself in the thick of the action in this fast-paced, adrenalin-fuelled tale. You won’t be able to tear yourself away from this one until the very last page. I’m so excited for the sequel!


“The entire book was engaging in the most complex way possible. The world building was incredible, a little difficult to understand in some places where a little more detail could’ve been used, but incredible all the same. It was clear that there had been a lot of thought put into place regarding every little detail in the book which why I totally couldn’t recommend it more for Thoes who love a spooky twist in your books 😉


“I wouldn’t want to put everything that happened throughout the book as it will spoil those who who wanted to read it later but suffice to say, this is truly a gem. I am satisfied that it may not be my genre but the book brought so much thrill and enjoyment both in plot and characters development.”

“The Night of the Legends by Leslie W @lesliewwrites is a new addition to my favourite fast-paced books! it’s a sci-fi book with some slow-burn romance, and it reminds me a lot of Divergent. the world building is amazing, and reading this was such a ride!”
