Publisher's Summary

Brandon Sanderson is one of the most significant fantasists to enter the field in a good many years. His ambitious, multi-volume epics (Mistborn, The Stormlight Archive) and his stellar continuation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series 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, read by Audie Award-winning narrator Oliver Wyman.

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. 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, Legion is a provocative entertainment from a writer of great originality and seemingly limitless gifts.

    "I could listen to this over and over"

    I have to admit, I really only ordered this book because it was offered as a free book. But now that I've listened to it, wow! What a great reading! The writing was excellent! I listened to this while building a miniature dollhouse just as background noise, but after the first chapter, I found myself listening more intently and forgot to work on the dollhouse. definitely recommend this to everyone!

    "Fantastic story! Creative plot!"

    Imaginative concept, executed masterfully. Each "aspect" has a unique personality.
    My only complaint is that the story is so short! I want more!! And so, I'm off to read the sequel!

    "Highly entertaining, innovative story"

    How have I missed this writer before? The performance was first rate, too: so many voices and accents by one individual is astounding.

    "Quite surprising"

    I've got this book for free from Audible, and was quite surprised by the quality of the story.
    An intriguing main character, a short, but well constructed plot.
    And, not a surprise there, an excellent performance.
    Hope that the series grow
