Overview

A novella from #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Legion is a fast-paced, witty, and supremely fun thriller with a psychological bent.

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, however, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The engaging if madcap events of this outr� narrative unobtrusively prompt the reader to reflect on the nature of reality. Complications pile on to expand the divergence from normality (�Your hallucination has hallucinations�) even as mainstream philosophical issues are addressed in an Alice�s Tea Party atmosphere. The conclusion is left clouded in ambiguity, and Sanderson suggests that the big questions may be beyond our ability to resolve.
Pat's Fantasy Hotlist
Here�s to hoping that we�ll have the opportunity to discover more about Stephen Leeds and his hallucinations in the near future, and that those new adventures will also be in the form of short stories or novellas� Legion should please Sanderson�s legions (sorry, couldn�t resist!) of fans and gain him some new followers. God knows I�m looking forward to what comes next!
