Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is the sequel to Onslaught and it continues to develop the Otarian plot in new directions. There's a strong epic feel to the book as The First, Phage, Akroma and other forces continue to clash.
Though Legions is not quite at the level of The Thran, it is a strong book and continues King's trend of taking strange and unpredictable plot twists. The characters develop in interesting new ways with a depth that is quite often passed over by some authors in favour of action.
As Legions depends heavily on Onslaught it cannot easily be read alone, however I recommend it to fans of the Magic storyline. The epic tales of gods and prophecies is what Magic fiction does best.

Interesting, but... 1 May 2003
By Lord Seth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
OK, this book is sort of interesting. Unfortunately, it would be nicer if it connected more with the set. It gets way off by mentioning all sorts of characters that didn't appear even once, not even in the flavor text.
Also, WHERE ARE THE SLIVERS?! There are 15 Slivers in the Legions set, and that's 10% of the set! And they cannot set aside 1% of the book? I was hoping it would at least mention the Riptide Project! Look at the flavor texts of some of the Slivers:
Essence Sliver: The slivers would survive, even at the expense of every other creature on Otaria.
Shifting Sliver: Once the last few slivers the Riptide Project controlled were dead, there was nothing to keep the island from being completely overrun.
Crypt Sliver: "Death couldn't contain the slivers. What made us think we could?." -Riptide Project researcher
Blade Sliver: After breaking free from the Riptide Project, the slivers quickly adapted to life on Otaria-much to the dismay of life on Otaria.
Brood Sliver: Within weeks, more slivers nested in Otaria than ever existed on Rath
Root Sliver: "It would take another apocalypse to stop the slivers now." -Riptide Project researcher
Now, Otaria is where pretty much all of the book takes place. Look at those flavor texts. It makes it seem like Otaria is under quite a bit of trouble from the Slivers. Yet it never mentions them. Not once. Please, I was really hoping for them to return! They mention them in the "Rath and Storm" novel, why not this? Well, maybe they'll show up in the next book, Scourge...but unlikely.
Maybe I'm making too big a deal out of the fact the Slivers aren't in it. But still, it seemed to go quite a bit aways from the set. Besides, I wanted to know what, if anything, stopped the Slivers. But does it mention them? Nope.
I preferred Onslaught greatly to this.

Legions- The fifth book in a 6 part SERIES! 9 April 2003
By J. Fought - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book worthy of praise. It is not a book to be read as a stand alone novel. It is the fifth book in a six part series, so it would behoove you to read the first five. The people that bad mouthed the book for some reason read this one without reading the previous books. The entire series is a wonderful collection to have, especially if your a fan of swords and sorcery.

Great Book 29 Sep 2003
By Daematrei Valar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a great book, I don;t care what anyone else says about it. I wish Ixidor was in it though but still, Waistcoat and Sash were a great add on though I was very sad when Umbra sacrificed himself for his friends. Akroma is a witch, and I hope once you read this book you feel the same. I kind of believed in Ixidors vision and hated it when he refused to come back from the worm. (Though I here he comes back in Scourge) Phage is cool though except for the fact that she rots anything she touches. Great Book

Bringing to life the story from Onslaught 8 April 2003
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Legions by J. Robert King is Book Two of the Onslaught Cycle, a fantasy novel series bringing to life the story from the Onslaught line of "Magic: The Gathering" collectible card game. Two titanic beings, the bloodthirsty Phage and the ruthless angel Akroma, rend the world with their deadly war, while the one man whose terrible wrongs created Phage and Akroma alike must find a way to protect what is left of mortal kind from their devastation. An exciting and titanic science fiction action/adventure saga.

Great plot! 10 Mar 2003
By Julio M. Feijoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Along with Time Streams, this is the best King's book in the series. The plot is great, it's never confusing and catches your attention from the beginning. I loved to hear from Ixidor again, and I can't wait to see him as a god in Scourge! Walking holes, death wurms and the marvels of Topos are great too. I think King had a not-so-brilliant period (Invasion, etc. were not as good as Time Streams) but with Onslaught and mostly with Legions, he returned to the good old times!
