    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Legion the most enjoyable?

    I loved the wry humor observing/listening to the aspects interacting with one another and their host person/mind. Good pace, good twists and turns, great fantasy... A ton of fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legion?

    Don't want to be a spoiler, but when two of the aspects become romantically interested in each other, I literally laughed out loud!!! Loved this story!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely. I looked forward to the times I was able to listen to more and hear the story advance... Great reading.


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend this to fun loving people who enjoy science, science fiction, psychology, fantasy, and a great paced story!

    Story
    Would you listen to The Beekeeper's Apprentice again? Why?

    Engaging story, brings the familiar characters, along with some new ones, to life. Well done! I could not wait to get back to it to hear some more! I especially liked the interplay between the generations and genders! The characters were a great complement to one another... and the ways they bonded and fulfilled one another was just so HUMAN! So relational! The stuff people long for in their own lives!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As Holmes and Russell work together, pieces of various puzzles fall into place--be it solving the kidnapping of a little girl, or figuring out who is trying to kill them. Well done! They play well off each other; and the camaraderie between the protagonists is fabulous. I can't wait to hear the rest of the series!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have liked to!!! I got back to it every chance I had.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, great reading! Very enjoyable!
