Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson comes a new novella collection, including a brand-new, never-been-published story.

Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It's his hallucinations who are mad.

A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people - Stephen calls them aspects - to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems...for a price.

His brain is getting a little crowded and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property - a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past - Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions - and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.

Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds includes the novellas Legion and Legion: Skin Deep, published together for the first time, as well as a brand-new Stephen Leeds novella, Lies of the Beholder.

One of the best protagonist ever...

Brandon Sanderson is absolutely brilliant as he delivers up one of the best/strangest protagonists ever... Meet Stephen Leeds, and as Stephen puts it, "I am quite sane... however, my hallucinations are quite mad" He is also a genius, though he claims not. Each of his imaginary friends is a genius, but only in a single field of endeavor. Each of his 'friends' are distinctly different from one another, they're funny, always squabbling, but it's only with their help that he's able to solve the mysteries set forth in this fantastic novella series. I have just finished listening to the audible version and No I'm not Crying... really... well, maybe just a little bit.
The truth is, I loved it! Oliver Wyman's narration really captured Stephen and all of his imaginary aspects perfectly! Get the book! Better yet, get the audio version, and get sucked into the strange world of Stephen Leeds!

two stories allready released and on bland new

I was very much looking forward to this book since I had purchased 2 short novellas on legion from audible and they were great mysterious stories with awsome character development. Imagine how pissed off I was to find those two stories were republished and covered half of this new book . the last story was ok but it seemed a rushed job that had failed to keep my attention..and that's it..2 of 3 stories I paid twice for and a week new story. I'm going to return it .

nice novella compendium and performance

can it be a compendium with only 3 entries? I digress, I would easily have listened to many more hours spun from Sanderson. fans of his know he has the capability of writing long epics. this was the first shorter story I've enjoyed of his work. it was a well crafted story. for the hardcore science fiction fans who want to know what kind of transistor they used to do that thing they did ... not in this series. the brief forays into science are more like Mary Shelly's its alive moment (the book not any of the movies based on it). I enjoyed the characters being as fleshed out as they needed to be without ever feeling something was missing as well as the pacing. I didn't feel rushed to a plot point for the comparative length.
the performance was EXCELLENT I am going to look for more by this narrator, I put him up there in no particular order with rc bray and nick podehl.
in the end I would definitely buy this book again, enjoy

Didn't want to get put of the car!

I decided I needed to listen to a book on my hour commute home in order to try and keep my blood pressure down and stress in check. I've been a fan of Sanderson since my brother introduced him to me 4 years ago. I saw this book on audible and picked it based on the author alone. That being said, it was fantastic! Character development and story line are in depth, but dont drag. I literally made my commute longer on some days to continue listening. Mr. Wyman's grasp of accents is superb and really added to each of the characters portrayed. I would highly recommend this title to any fan of a number of genres! Thanks for making my commute bearable for a few weeks!

I feel cheated

I'm a big fan of the legion series, so when I saw a brand new book I couldn't be more exited.
Sadly this book contains the past two and only a third is new material. Don't get me wrong, the new material is amazing, but I wish the description was straight forward about the audibook being a collection.

A wonderful trilogy

I first found these novellas when only two were out. It was several years ago when I was binging on all of Sandersons novels. Only now that this small series is done do I realize how invested I got, how much I loved these characters. So I thank you once again Brandon Sanderson for creating such rich worlds in which I constantly get lost in. And goodbye Mr. Steve

Another Sanderson pleasure

If you love Sanderson's you'll love this. especially if you're still holding over from his other series.

Headline

Narrator was enjoyable. The 2nd novella was meh at best. But the first and the 3rd were enjoyable.
