This week for Book Series Wednesday I’m back with the sequel to Legion. It’s Legion: Skin Deep by Brandon Sanderson!

Plot Synopsis: 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.

Plot: The novella is a bit longer this time, which I love because I love all of Sanderson’s works. Stephen is still searching for his benefactor and only other person who knew what was going on in his head, and while that plot thread doesn’t get resolved I’m looking forward to the third book for it to be tied up. As for this story it’s great, quite a bit like the first one it’s very fast in terms of pacing. However considering it’s a novella by Brandon, I’m not too surprised at that.

Characters: I like the new aspects we get to meet in this book and while I still would love to learn about each and every single one of them, it would have made the book much longer and taken more of Brandon’s time from the Stormlight Archive and Alloy of Law’s sequel.

Audiobook: Definitely a great Audiobook, and since this is one of Brandon’s shorter works it’s perfect for those who haven’t read any of his books yet. This is availiable via Here’s a clip from the Audible version.

Overall: Worth a read or listen to as it’s another one of Brandon Sanderson’s amazing works.

For those who like: Great Plots, Excellent Characters, Fast Paced Books, Urban Fantasy, and Brandon Sanderson.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but how can you hate that?
