HIS PAST IS HUNTING HIM—AND SHE WON´T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER.

Thinker, once a proud soldier, bulwark against the enemies of humanity, and fearless immortal—is now a dishwasher trapped on a dismal collective System world without even his own memories to comfort him. Tortured by dreams of people he has never met, he will be returned to the clinic if he fails to adjust to life on the outside—and his adjustment is not going well. Although required to submit, he just killed a man trying to rob him…and it felt good. To make matters worse, the band of ruthless killers known as the Legion he was taught to fear, is after him…and he has no idea why.

Editorial Reviews

DS Schertz
“Secret of the Legion by Marshall S. Thomas is fast paced and well put together. It provides a possible insight to how the future soldier will survive both as an individual and as a team. MARINE wannabees should enjoy. I found nothing to slow down the pace and for the most part it hung together well with reasonable but sometime unexpected endings. The entire series is well worth the time.”
Laurel Johnson
“As in every book of this series, the battles are so realistic my heartpounded…The writing style is exciting…In many ways, this is my favorite book in the series so far. Highly recommended.”
Lori Saphira
“The Soldier of the Legion series has been a fun read all the way through! I actually enjoy the fact that the author doesn't go into detail about the weapons. It allows the reader to form their own mental picture of the capabilities. More please!”
Nancy L. Mehl
“As in his previous novels, Thomas's characters have a level of depth and intensity that move this story way beyond a Sci-fi thriller, creating a compelling novel that will appeal to all readers.”
