A new review for The Day Of Legion.

A review for The Day Of Legion is on Authors by Authors. I'm quite happy with it really.

My Review of "Day of Legion" by Craig Taylor

The Day of Legion definitely got off to a great start, hooking me right away in having me try to figure out the main character was in both past, present and future. With lots of unexpected twists, the story continued to recapture and hold my attention from start to finish.

I thought the story had a unique structure to the story line, and I applaud authors and publishers who take those kinds of risks because it definitely worked for this book. Even with the multiple, meaning more than two, points of views, which is always a challenge to depth of character, I think the author did a great job of letting the reader get to know each of them. I felt personally involved. Maybe this was in the descriptions that the author seemed so very good at.  These made me really enjoy the good verses bad plot, the destiny, angel and demon type feel to every event that happened. The mythology was light but sounds, lending its hand to the constant suspense which really made the book.

If supernatural horror is your thing, then I highly recommend this read! Craig Taylor is yet another excellent author from Damnation Books :)

An excerpt from The Day Of Legion

At first she rode him. His loneliness melted into pleasure instantly. He felt wanted again. He smiled and started to imagine this beautiful woman as his partner, and all the things they would do together.
Then he felt the pressure of her hands on his throat. She chanted softly to herself. First he felt confusion. Maybe she liked it rough. Reality then set in as he started to choke. Then he was dead.
Clara got off him and stood by the bed. She was excited. She didn’t have long to wait. The man’s body arched its back and inhaled loudly.
The face turned to look at her and she knew the demon was in him. His eyes were completely black and the odor of the darkness began to fill the room. The chest heaved as the demon relished the pleasure of breathing air, something it hadn’t done for hundreds of years.
Clara released the bindings, allowing the demon to sit up and look around. He smiled. She was instructed to acquire a strong body, and she hadn’t disappointed. He could feel the strong muscles covering solid bones. He breathed in the air and could smell the sickly scent of a world with too much light.
