All of Legends is a time-travel tale, and in War of the Twins we start to confront some of the contradictions and challenges that time travel presents. Indeed, these challenges haunt the main characters. They find they are forced to follow in the footsteps of time—even though they know what is going to happen. They struggle to change what they know is going to take place yet find that everything they do is futile to make any change in history.
