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 new story begins, Leeds and his “aspects” are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there’s a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous…

What follows is a visionary thriller about the potential uses of technology, the mysteries of the human personality, and the ancient human need to believe that death is not the end. Legion: Skin Deep is speculative fiction at it most highly developed. It reaffirms Sanderson’s place as one of contemporary fiction’s most intelligent—and unpredictable—voices.


Guysssssss guys guys guys. How have I not featured this book yet?! IT’S ALMOST HEEEERE!!!

I adore this series of novellas. The first one, Legion, introduced us to Stephen Leeds — and his super-talented hallucinations, which help him solve crimes. Yes, it is just as awesome as it sounds — if not more so. I’ve been looking forward to a sequel since before the sequel was actually announced as an Actual Thing That Was Happening, so obviously I’m a little excited for its release. I neeeeed more Stephen Leeds (+ hallucinations) in my life.

If you haven’t heard of/checked out this series of novellas yet, I really recommend that you do. The first one is only $2.99 on Kindle and Nook, and it’s worth every penny.

What book are YOU anxiously awaiting today?

Link me to your WoW post and I’ll be sure to stop by! :)

  1. SANDERSSSOONNN!!!! For the win. Admittedly, I still need to read Legion myself but I am of course DYING to. For real. Like, as soon as I post my comment here I’m off to see if the $2.99 deal is also available in Canada. O.O Anyway, I clearly support your pick this week 1000000 % and can’t wait to get into MOAR SANDERSON ♥
