From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson comes a new novella collection, including a brand new, never-been-published story. Stephen Leeds is schizophrenic (. . . probably . . .) and he’s in demand. But not for his own skills – his clients want to tap into the imaginary experts that populate his mind – and it’s getting a bit crowded in there.
One of his many ‘aspects’ is a trained soldier, another a psychological expert, a third is a librarian, and all of them want to help him solve problems, making him an exceptionally versatile intelligence agent. If you need a stolen corpse retrieved or a missing inventor found, Stephen Leeds is the man – or rather, the team – for the job. But managing a team is a challenge in itself, all the more so when some of the team feel they know better than Stephen himself . . .
The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds is an omnibus edition of the three amazing Legion novellas: Legion, Legion: Skin Deep and Legion: Lies of the Beholder. ‘An absolutely fantastic read’ Fantasy Book Review
‘The pulse of a thriller and the hook of a fascinating hero balancing on the edge of psychosis’ Library Journal
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.
Escapes of a Bookworm
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.
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
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
