Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson comes a new novella collection, including a brand-new, never-before-published story.

Stephen Leeds is schizophrenic (...probably...) and he's in demand. But not for his own skills - his clients want to tap in to the imaginary experts that populate his mind - and it's getting a bit crowded in there.

One of his many 'aspects' is a trained soldier, another a psychological expert; a third is a librarian, and all of them want to help him solve problems, making him an exceptionally versatile intelligence agent. If you need a stolen corpse retrieved or a missing inventor found, Stephen Leeds is the man - or, rather, the team - for the job. But managing a team is a challenge in itself, all the more so when some of the team feel they know better than Stephen himself....

The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds is an omnibus edition of the three amazing Legion novellas: Legion, Legion: Skin Deep and Legion: Lies of the Beholder.

Incredible read

With this book Brandon Sanderson proves once again that he has the imagination, creativity and talent to bring to life any world in any genre he chooses. The people in this book rather ironically possess more real character than any I have read in a long time. Narrator Oliver Wyman does an excellent job of bringing this world to life, I would recommend this book to anyone but especially those who love mystery, detectives novels or science fiction.

Dull dull dull

A good job I hadn’t read this before I found the authors other books. Not a patch on his science fantasies

The first story was awesome but the others dragged

The book consists of three books in a series and on them, the first one was awesome and the others dragged so much I had to skip some parts. The concept was wonderful and I enjoyed every bit of Stephen. Good for one time read.

Highly recommended

Great mix of mystery and wiredness, very entertaining and I would highly recommend. The audio performance was brilliant too - the narrator has a great range of voices, which he puts to effect and consistent effect.

The many feels of Sander's reads

Packed with emotion, action, and ingenuity! Such a novel concept, executed wonderfully. A bittersweet journey you'll feel sad you have taken, but glad to have experienced.

Tawdry

Packed to the brim with lazily written cliché, two dimensional characters and topped with a terrible first chapter which I could not get beyond.

Interesting book with great narration

Loved it from beginning to end. The only problem I had with it is that the story makes references to things that never take place and it makes me want to hear these stories. Great narration, lovely voice.
