Brandon Sanderson is one of the most significant fantasists to enter the field in a good many years. His ambitious, multi-volume epics (Mistborn, The Stormlight Archive) and Hugo Award-winning The Emperor's Soul have earned both critical acclaim and a substantial popular following. In the Legion series, distinctly contemporary novellas filled with suspense, humor, and an endless flow of invention, Sanderson has revealed a startling new facet of his singular narrative talent. Stephen Leeds, AKA Legion, is the series' hero, 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. The third and final entry in the series, Lies of the Beholder, is perhaps the strangest, most unpredictable installment to date. The story begins with two seemingly unrelated events: the disappearance of Armando, one of Stephen's many aspects, and an unexpected cry for ...

Lies of the Beholder Reviews
Well, I suppose it had to happen sometime. I'm rating a Brandon Sanderson book less than four stars. He's written about five million of them, so statistically this was a very likely outcome, eventually. And now it has, and we can all move on with our lives.
I really enjoyed the first two novellas in this series. The premise is great (a genius who has schizophrenia channels his illness into the creation of imaginary people who he calls aspects, all of whom are experts in one field or another). And ...more
Is it the end? I'd like sequels!
If I enjoyed very much the previous 2 books, this one was the most satisfying and fun. Sanderson delivered some needed answers and, as usual, did well with the aspects. I enjoyed spending time with them and found Stephen as interesting as in the previous books. The interactions inside the team were good, even if maybe less deep than before. The secondary plot was compelling, with action, mystery and challenges. It wasn't religious or as dark as in the previous boo ...more
I'm not sure I liked this one. 😬 Ima have to think about it for a couple of days.
El principio me estaba pareciendo un coñazo del copón. El segundo libro que era una historieta sin mas que no avanzaba gran cosa luego esto. Sin embargo luego se pone increíble.
Ahora esto tiene visos de continuar... Sanderson acaba algo de una vez, no todo pueden ser sagas interminables. Y encima lo que eran libros cerrados los continuas... vas a ser peor que Routhfuss o Martin, estos no son capaces de terminar lo que empezaron y no sacan nada y tu no paras de sacar pero en el fondo igual.
A rare miss for this great author.
Brandon Sanderson is in my opinion the greatest living fantasy author. Rather than milk a single work as most authors do, he has multiple sets of books with distinct characters, concepts, magic systems and worldbuilding. Any one of these could serve as a normal author's greatest work. His consistency of quality is startling.
This is an exception. This trilogy should have been a single book. It is an interesting thought experiment, repeated three times. Unlike eve ...more

Excerpt from the book available here!!
Argh, I miss Stephen Leeds' hallucinations so bad (view spoiler)[I 💕lurves💕 you, J.C.! (hide spoiler)], why does this book have to be so bloody shrimping expensive?!
Our Lord Shrimp knows, Mr Sanderson and I have had our, um, differences, in the past. Nothing, um, major, mind you. Just slight, um, disagreements, about the, um, quality, of his writing abilities and stuff. Ever wonder why

“Yes, it’s all in my head. But pain is ‘all in my head’ too. Love is ‘all in my head.’ All the things that matter in life are the things you can’t measure! The things our brains make up! Being made-up doesn’t make them unimportant.”SANDERSON DID IT AGAIN. I never meant to get attached with the aspects nor to actually really love this novella but why dafuq am I ugly crying????????? (Hahahah who am I kidding?)
This final novella was truly an emotional and turbulent read and to say that my hear ...more
