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.

    "Fun idea, mystery not delivered"

    Love the main character and his aspects. Brilliant idea. Mystery did not take... Like an excuse for a philosophical discussion instead of a truly immersed story. Ending didn't finish the story. After Emporers Soul, slightly disappointing.

    "Short, but good."

    Overall, the whole thing felt a bit rushed. Like it was maybe two or three chapters out of a single novel. Nothing was missing, per se, but it felt lacking.

    "A truly fresh take on the detective thriller"

    Proof that it's still possible to write a truly unique take on a classic mystery genre. The eccentric personalities of each character in the book are given a distinct voice by the narrator, I truly hope the author explores this character further.

    "Creative, short, and very enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Legion in three words, what would they be?

    Literary aperitif


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In a story with few living characters and many more imaginary, yet forgetfully real characters, it is unfair to ask for a "favorite character". If I must pick one, it would be Stephen Leeds as that encompasses the majority of the cast.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    Stephen Leeds Et al.
