BIONICLE Legends 1: Island of Doom is the first book in the BIONICLE Legends series.


As the Matoran were repairing Metru Nui, Turaga Dume consulted with the Toa that Mata Nui wasn't just sleeping, he was dying. The only way to save the Great Spirit was to find the Kanohi Ignika, the Mask of Life. But it could only be found on Voya Nui. The Toa Nuva set out in similar canisters that brought them to Mata Nui, with Takanuva guarding Metru Nui.

Six rogue Dark Hunters called Piraka appeared on the island of Voya Nui. However, due to their arrival in canisters and their strange powers, the resident Matoran easily mistake them for Toa. However, they have their own agenda, seeking out a legendary treasure that threatens to unlock an ancient evil.

Back on Metru Nui, Jaller arrived at the location the Toa recently left from. He asked where the Toa Nuva had gone, only to have the information withheld by the Turaga. Jaller then decided to declare a strike on Metru Nui for the reason that the Turaga were not treating the Matoran with enough respect.

On Voya Nui, The Piraka used Zamor spheres made from antidermis to enslave the Matoran after fighting a fake monster. Only six were spared from the chaos and formed a rebellion. However, soon after, the Toa Nuva arrived on the island and charged into battle with the Piraka, only to face a devastating defeat. Zaktan ordered that their masks and weapons be taken and the Toa thrown into the volcano.

On Metru Nui, Turaga Nokama told Jaller about what was going on. After she left, Jaller sought the best Matoran to go save the Toa Nuva.
