Today, Audio Studios is releasing Brandon Sanderson’s Legion: Skin Deep and I have a clip to share with you. I’ve not read this specific series yet but I have read Steelheart, his young adult venture. I enjoyed Sanderson’s seamless writing style and ability to vividly describe his scenes.
Before we get to the clip here’s a bit about Legion: Skin Deep (book 2 in the Legion series). I’d honestly not heard about these specific books, but goodness, they sound epic.
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.
