What did you like best about this story?
This is book two of the Hell on Earth series. Legion takes place parallel to events in book one. We see what these smaller, but not less interesting, characters were doing during book one and we see their stories catch up to present. Good follow up in the series

I devoured book 1 of this and couldn't wait to listen to this one as 2 ended on a cliffhanger of sorts. Well, this was just as good!!
While this is book 2, it also tells the stories of some of the minor characters from book 1 from when the rocks first appear and continues on the stories of the major characters of book 1. I absolutely loved that the author did this!! It was awesome to figure out Vamps' story and get to know his ragged group more. We meet Hernandez, whose life doesn't go according to his plans. We meet Richard, a police officer trying to do his job, all the while trying to keep his wife and son alive! We also get to see how Guy, Rick and a few of the other characters are doing.
As with the first, the author sure knows how to tell a tale!! His characters are amazing. Vamp and his buddies are thugs but step up when things go to hell. Hernandez is crazy and boy does the author write him well!! Richard was awesome. He is brave but is also just a man. He knows his job is to protect civilians, but he also just wants to grab his wife and son and run and hide. Each was so well written and developed'
Again, the plot was fast paced and addicting. The gates are spewing out beast after beast, whom are all but unstoppable and humanity is on the brink! What I love about this series is that not only is the plot dark and disturbing, but it tells the story of how humanity will strive to survive, no matter what.
In all, an amazing book and an even better series. I can NOT wait to see what the author brings to the table next!!! Bring on book 3 :)
Nigel Patterson again did an amazing job! He really is such an easy to listen to narrator and has a pleasant voice. He knew how to amp up the tension in this story and bring it to life. If you're knew to audios, he is a narrator to try.

Preposterous plot, filled with cliches. Naff characters, embarrassing national stereotypes, awful narration, laughable dialogue. COULD NOT STOP LISTENING.
This is actually a really interesting and well thought out story. Nigel Patterson's performance is pretty good too if you can ignore his horrendous portrayal of Vamps and the accents of the urban London gangs. He makes them all sound like 50+ yr old van drivers.
That aside, well worth a listen.
