Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society
Brandon is always an author that keeps me not only glued but hugely entertained. He manages to bring fantastical idea’s to the fore that draw the reader in as well as giving them a story that when you break it down, sounds far fetched however when reading, makes complete sense. That’s not a dig but I can’t say too much about this ebook without ruining it for others who have yet to have the pleasure.
Its definitely quirky, has great dialogue and when you throw in great storytelling alongside cracking prose, makes this a great book to help you escape the current world into one of the light fantastical. All round a great read and to discover that there’s a second available already made this a great find all round. A definite cracker for the Christmas market.

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.

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 second book by Brandon that ties in to the delightfully innovative world featuring Stephen Leeds. Expanding on what has already gone before, the reader is yet again treated to a story that is not only wonderfully written but keeps you glued until the final page is turned.
Back this up with the usual identifiable writing style of Brandon alongside a great story arc all round keeps the reader more than happy. A series that you really have to pick up to fully enjoy and one that will offer great reread possibilities when each new release hits the shelves. Magic.
