Legion has a purpose – to teach, to avenge and to murder. Witnessing a married couple kidnapped at the side of the road, he follows them, knowing he’ll have to make choices about his actions—who to save, who to kill. But with a Russian crime syndicate involved, there are a lot of decisions to make in his bid to uncover the truth.
This is the third book I’ve read by this author, so I knew to expect a bit of creepy and a bit of weird, but this one is just plain off the wall. Michaelbrent Collings has the ability to write in different ways, and whereas with ‘Predators’ he deals with realistic situations (a group of tourists terrorised during an African safari), some of his other books veer well away from what I might call ‘normal’. What I liked about this one is his talent for keeping the reader guessing, piling on the twists like they’re going out of fashion. The gory scenes (and there are plenty) have a realism to them that makes me wonder what the author does in his spare time.
If you like your horror stories with a big slice of crazy, this’ll be right up your Nightmare Alley.
