Brandon Sanderson is one of the most significant fantasists to enter the field in a good many years. His ambitious, multi-volume epics and his stellar continuation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Timeseries have earned both critical acclaim and a substantial popular following. In Legion, a distinctly contemporary novella filled with suspense, humor, and an endless flow of invention, Sanderson reveals a startling new facet of his singular narrative talent.
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 specialised 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. The action ranges from the familiar environs of America to the ancient, divided city of Jerusalem. Along the way, Sanderson touches on a formidable assortment of complex questions: the nature of time, the mysteries of the human mind, the potential uses of technology, and the volatile connection between politics and faith.
Resonant, intelligent, and thoroughly absorbing, Legionis a provocative entertainment from a writer of great originality and seemingly limitless gifts. Read by Oliver Wyman.

Great concepts, great execution. It's about the line between genius and madness, a special line you've never seen before. Dotted with humour to keep the tone light. The story is too short to regret it, even if you don't believe me.
"Great short story,"
Some interesting ideas which I hope the author expands upon it future.
The narration was very good, with the variety of characters being immediately identifiable and not grating.
"More, I want more!!!"
Really cool phantasy, that I would like to continue for many hours...
Can someone please clone Brandon Sanderson? And Patrick Rothfuss, as you are already on it?!
"Interesting!!! a good read...."
I really enjoyed the book and when I heard that last sentence, I wondered if it was leaving a door open for a sequel and immediately checked back here. Now I just have to wait for the rest of the trilogy and hope they are as engaging and entertaining!
I heard the book it was really good and a worthy one. Suggest everyone to buy this.
