Following the success of Legion, Legion: Skin Deep charts another fast moving and gripping adventure for Stephen Leeds, AKA Legion. Leeds is a genius, his mind contains too much information. And to cope it has split his skills off into individual personalities. They crowd his head and he lives with them in a vast empty mansion. While he can call on any one of them to solve a problem he also walks a line across an all-consuming madness.
In development for television Brandon Sanderson’s Legion stories are gripping psychological thrillers, perfect for any fan of speculative fiction. They will resonate particularly strongly with fans of stories about that other tortured crime-fighting genius: Sherlock Holmes.
Legion: Skin Deep is an all-new, action-packed novella starring one of the most fascinating and charismatic heroes ever.
The decidedly though-provoking premise, that the human body and its cells can be used as receptacles to store information...makes for a very interesting read
Pat's Fantasy Hotlist
We get some brilliantly funny scenes between Stephen and his personae, not to mention some brilliantly clever scenes that really shape our view of Stephen's world...Legion: Skin Deep is an absolutely fantastic read,
Fantasy Book Review
with unanswered questions lingering and Stephen's mind slowly reaching saturation point, there's potential for the series to develop into greater character study and more complex mysteries.
If you haven't checked out this series yet, you should. It's a super fun blend of sci-fi/fantasy and modern thriller, and is totally different from anything else Sanderson has written - you know, apart from the fact that it's also fairly mindblowingly awesome. ;) So whether or not you've read his stuff before, you should give this a try.
brilliantly written, light and funny when required and serious at the appropriate moments....And there are so many secrets left to explore so much more to find out about Legion and his aspects that I'm hopeful of another book, as frustratingly, but in a good way, it left me wanting more.
