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 end...

Lies of the Beholder Reviews
OMG. I cried. THE PAIN.
If you thought the first two books were amazing, just wait until you read this one!!
Rating - 7/10(Good) - RIP Hallucinatory friends :(
This is the final novella of this insane trilogy and I am really sad to say that this novella was really disappointing. I am going to go ahead and criticize this one completely.
The novel was a emotional journey for me and I felt more concerned about the aspects of Stephen Leeds (mainly Tobias :( ). The idea was avant-garde in my opinion and the psychological elements were addressed in an excellent manner.
But other than that the novel was not a ...more
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.
In the final novella of the trilogy, Stephen Leeds confronts his past and future and questions the very nature of reality. It’s a fitting final chapter for one if the most unique characters in modern fiction. Fast paced and head trippy, Sanderson manages a finale that is both fun and emotionally satisfying. Oliver Wyman is perfectly cast, since he has many voices living in his head as well, all pulls out all the stops in this finale.
I feel like I should have seen that ending coming, it was so beautiful and simple, it gave me goosebumps.
But as much as I loved the ending, I felt just a little underwhelmed by this last addition to the legion series (which is one of my absolute favourite Sanderson creations). It was still wonderful, but I have to say, I expected more from Sandra. And let's be honest, didn't the whole thing stink a little of the putting-the-woman-in-danger-so-the-man-can-grow-in-the-process-of-saving-her Hollyw ...more
This was by far the best Legion story in terms of plot and character development, but the ending left me confused. Well, the ending per se was very clear, I just can't make up how to feel about it. Underwhelmed might not be the best word to describe the feeling. Rushed up? Vague? Empty? Open? Dissatisfying? I feel like there isn't a precise word to describe it. Like... bad, but in a good way?
Oh well. The Legion trilogy is over and I never thought I was going to say this, but I'm actually slightl ...more
I still love Brandon Sanderson’s LEGION series and adore Stephen Leeds and his hallucinatory aspects, but “Lies of the Beholder” ... was kind of a letdown.
As “Lies of the Beholder” (the third and last novella in this series) begins, Stephen Leeds is giving a private interview to Jenny Zhang, a reporter who begins displaying far more insight into Stephen’s mental state and thought processes than he’s comfortable with. This uncomfortable interview is interrupted by a text from the long-missing San ...more
