    1. This is one of those books I read as a kid and recently reread to see if it still held up.Short story: It did.Long story:The Legend of Lady Ilena is historical fiction and takes place in Scotland during the time of King Arthur. It tells the story of Ilena, a young woman brought up in the Vale of Enfort in the East, who, upon the death of her father and hearing his dying words, chooses to journey West to seek out the answers to who she really is.This book does not disappoint, and while it is a mi [...]


    2. I love this two-part series. Enough plot twists to engage adult readers. Enough action to satisfy that desire. A touch of romance, and England too!



    3. Ilena has lived in the Vale of Enfert her whole life, but she knows it isn't really where she belongs. Her parents, Moren and Grenna, came from somewhere else, and with the both of them now dead, she decides to go after her elusive heritage. But the truth threatens those who seek power, and they will go to any lengths to stop her . . .Entirely by coincidence, I find myself reading yet another historical novel set in early British/Scottish history (approximately AD 500s). This time, Ilena is the [...]


    4. The Legend of Lady Ilena by Patricia Malone is an exciting, action packed book. Its epic battle scenes thrill the mind, while vivid descriptions truly complete an unforgettable experience.

She grew up learning the skills required to be a great and mighty fighter. Ilena is the daughter of Moren and Grenna. Her family lives i [...]

    6. This is an great teen read! It's got danger and action in spades, a coming-of-age storyline and dashes of romance. How can one not love that? A favorite of mine that I've read a few times now. Ilena has grown up thinking she was the daughter of Moren and Grenna, strangers to the Vale of Enfert who arrived a few days after Ilena's birth. The people accepted them and took them into the community. Now as Moren lays dying, he tells Ilena to head East to Dun Alyn and to find her destiny there. Ilena [...]


    7. This is a top quality first novel, and if it weren't my follow-up to In the name of the Wind, I may well have given it five stars. It was certainly good enough for me to want to buy my own copy one day (rather than the somewhat questionably worn library copy I ended up with). Ilena is a strong main character, and it is really easy to see that Malone did quite a bit of research on the era - not only regarding the political upheaval of the time, but also daily rituals, customs, garb, and food. She [...]


    8. Hungry for more medieval times finished with King Arthur. Then the Legend of Lady Ilena by Patricia Malone (Publisher: Delacorte Press) is for you. Only $4.99 new! This book is illustrated by Tristan Elwell, copy-right date February 2002. Ilena has always lived in the Vale of Enfert, but has never known her lineage because her family is from the East. When she goes to the one place her dying father told her to people start to mistake her for their lost Lady Miquain, enemies awake. Set in Britain [...]


    9. A young adult book about an independent young girl who sets off by herself after the death of her father to find out who she really is. The story was a very straightforward adventure and probably would be good for preteens. Ilena is unusual in that she is trained with weapons and warfare. A good book to learn some interesting facts about the time period such as Druid beliefs and inheritance through the female line. Fast read.


    10. i saw this book at the library and picked it up just because i needed a book to read. i stuck it towards the end of my book pile to read later. as soon as i started reading it though, i was captured and couldnt put it down. the suspense is incredible and its one of very few books i was unable to predict. for anyone who likes stories from the dark ages and the movie king arthur, this is a MUST READ!


    11. Ilena knew she was an outsider from the Vale of Enfert, even though she's lived there her whole life. With her father's last words to her to guide her, Ilena sets out to find distand Dun Alyn to find her destiny. With the help of new friends, including King Arthur's man Durrant, Ilena discovers she is the heir of Dun Alyn and must free them from the evil druid Ogern.


    12. A good historical-fiction book filled with action and a little bit of romance. I quite enjoyed this book's strong female protagonist, Ilena. It was fun following her through her journey to understand who she was, where she came from, and what her role she must play. Finding out that she was a twin in the end was pretty cool too, because I am also a twin.


    13. My favorite fantasy book from childhood. Until this past Christmas, I had owned the book since I was fourteen. I gave it mathom-style to a younger girl in my neighborhood, now about fourteen herself, who wrote me a thank you note including the sentiment: "I couldn't put it down! I red it through twice!" This is a truly spectacular book!


    14. This is more like it. Lady Ilena is a young, but confident woman, whose past is shrouded in mystery. All she knows is her father's dying request that she look for relatives at Dun Alyn. I like that Ilena is far from helpless due to her training as a warrior and I admire her independent spirit and her courage.


    15. M'eh. Skimmed. It was trying to be too many things at once - historical fiction, fantasy, King Arthur story, Dark Ages story, mystery, secret princess, blah, blah, blah. It never draws you in - too much stiffness from the characters and not enough setting, like an 8th grade production of Our Town.


    16. I liked this book. I didn't love it, and it won't be a new favorite, but it wasn't a bad read. The writing is probably what bugged me the most. It was stilted, and too formal. I understand that people spoke very formally back then, but it just seemed flat. I couldn't relate to Ilena in any way, so that was disappointing. Not a bad book, It just could've used better character development.


    17. This book was sorely lacking in depth. The story itself was fine, it just felt like it was someone's notes rather than the actual story. I would have loved to have had more details on characters, a more prolonged ending, a more realistic ending battle, etc. But worth reading I suppose.


    18. This is a story of an orphaned girl whose father's last words were to return to Dun Aryn, a place she'd never been. I primarily liked the story. This one is probably about 3-1/2 stars. It is a small book--a fast read.


    19. I read this in middle school, but I remember not being able to put it down. Just the right level of adventure, intrigue, and romance for juvenile fiction. Hoping to re-read again soon to see what I think of it today!


    20. This book was okay. It's historical fiction set in Brittain in the middle ages. It was a good story about the lady Ilena and her adventures as she finds out her true past. But the writing style didn't capture me.


    21. I think this book has potential to be a really good book. It felt more like a rough draft being told in the first person. It was flat and you felt you really didn't know the characters. Still, it was hard to put down so instead of a 2.5 it gets a 3.


    22. for YA fans of dark ages british historyreadalikes for adults: The Dark Mirror (The Bridei Chronicles, #1) (but with magic elements)


    23. I loved this book. I still cannot believe that the book I randomly picked out turned out to be Christian, if not partially. For some reason I've always loved the case-of-mistaken-identity revelation in books. This was amazing- period.


    24. Patricia Malone's first book, and it's way good! It's got the basic elements of a good adventure, and it's easy to relate to. And it should be believable, because it's Historical Fiction. A neat way to read Arthurian history, though!


    25. While it was really able to predict the "twist" in this story it was still very well written and researched. This is a really great book for anyone who likes historical fiction and/or the dark ages. An enjoyable read overall.




    26. I loved this book as a child, so when I saw it on , I decided to give it another read. It was good, but not as good as I remembered
