Are there any legal sites where I can download the complete English Sword Art Online light novel?

I can't seem to find translated ones.

  • doubt it, there was a fan translation however now that Yen Press is doing the translation and selling i doubt you'll find legal links and the fan translation i think can now be seen as illegal now that the series is officially being translated

  • @Memor-X On Yen Press I need to buy it? So maybe torrent is my option as of now? Sep 18, 2014 at 3:24

    while torrents themselves aren't illegal their content can still be and in this case i'd assume any torrent of Sword Art Online Novels will be thus.

A quick google search shows that Barnes and Noble and Amazon have the paperback novels for sale:

These are obviously not downloads, but you can request nook or wait for kindle versions to be released, which would be digital downloads.

These are not free as legal usually means you pay for it unless its so old that the licensing has expired.
