PRAISE FOR LEGION AND ROBERT SWARTWOOD

"Legion is an excellent thriller that does what most thrillers set out to do. Keep the readers hooked with a fast paced story, sprinkled heavily with jaw-dropping twists that end on a climax, which will leave the readers wanting more." --Fantasy Book Critic

"Robert Swartwood is the next F. Paul Wilson -- if F. Paul Wilson's DNA was spliced with Michael Marshall Smith. If you haven't yet read Swartwood, you're missing out." --Brian Keene

"Robert Swartwood is a sharp writer, his prose lean and mean as a razor blade. He notches up the tension from chapter to chapter like a master story-teller, keeping you reading long into the night." --The Man Eating Bookworm

"An exceptional novelist." --Douglas Clegg

"This is a scary, thrilling, page-turning, race-against-the-clock novel if ever there was one, with a true shocker of an ending. Miss this one at your own peril." --Blake Crouch on The Serial Killer's Wife

"Man of Wax grabs you by the throat in the first chapter and never lets go. A suspense-filled thrill ride with plenty of shocks along the way. Read it!" --F. Paul Wilson

"Excellent -- memorable and something I'll read more than once." --Roxane Gay on No Shelter

Please, save your money!  Terrible book, terrible writing, terrible plot.  Did I say terrible plot? Got it for $.99 &still paid way too much. $4.99 would have really ticked me off. Go find something else, you'll be glsd you din.

If you are a fan of "Man of Wax" - then you are in for a treat here. Although this is a 100% stand-alone book, it takes you back before any of the action in "Man of Wax" giving you insight for whats to come. Call it a prequel if you want. Once the story takes off it's one twist and turn after another, drawing you into the action before you know it. Think you know what's going to happen next - you are wrong! Personally I think this is Mr. Swartwoods best writing to date. So if you are a fan of the author, or of the "Man of Wax" series, Legion needs to be in your collection.
