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

When is the next series arriving?

Mr. Wright has done it again. This was an excellent sequel to Legion 1. I love the fact that he now told the tale of some minor characters from the first book while still offering a cohesive story. I also really enjoyed the short stories at the end.... Especially the one about Damien Banks. I hope we will hear more about him and his friends, Harry, Lucas, and Steph.

Last note.... I am definitely going to check out Stuart Keane's books. I adored reading about why

Excellent follow up to The Gates...same volume of death and destruction at the hands of demons, zombies, and giants. There was a bit of confusion, as this story did some time hopping to scenes that happened in book 1 then zipped back to the present, but in a different POV. Weird. Anyhow, lots of fun here in the very darkest and demonic sense of the word fun.

I'm really enjoying this series. Wildly imaginative and constant action. I just started book 3 and can't wait to find out what happens. Highly recommended!

Great sequel.

This author pulls no punches in his books and this one is no different.
Very graphic and dramatic, with a stunning end. A thrilling British series.

“Legion” picks up where Hell’s Gate left off. As more of the gates open and the entire world goes to hell, literally the accounts of the bravery and honor keep coming in. With a way now to close the gates, the real war is officially on. But evil and losses lurk at every corner and the Navy just experienced a catastrophe turn of events.

Legion, covers ground from other survivors point of view, as the world must come together as a single unit to fight the apocalypse back to hell.

Vamps and his crew

Hell is coming to Earth! Gates have opened all over the Earth and the demons are pouring in. This is worse than the apocalypse talked about in the Bible. The demons are trying to eliminate humanity to weaken God.

A few stories from The Gates continue in Legion. I highly recommend listening to The Gates first! Some people you'd never expect rise up to take on the demons and help their fellow man.

Great narration by Nigel Patterson. I really enjoy his accent. He does a good American accent as well

In book two of this series, the author finally begins to bring the diverse characters together. There is still one overwhelming victory of the invaders over the earthlings after another, but we at last have reason to hope that humanity will find a way. It's not high-brow literature, and some of the action seems forced (there's a sex scene that comes out of left field), but this is a real page-turner--or swiper as the case may be.

Definitely did not enjoy this book. It started by going into the past of characters you were reading about in book one of the series. That should have happened in book one..... it was confusing starting book two with that. The story didn't flow like the first book and sort of jumped around with no continuity. I wasn't kept wanting, to reach the end, therefore I won't be buying book three to find out if mankind wins or not. Sorry Iain........ I usually love your stuff. :-(

Deliciously scary!

Ok, just finished book one and two in this series. I was ready to write a review by the time I'd read only the first few pages. I have read Rob Wright's work before and should have known he'd deliver. Omg, the scares - I'm a big horror fan and little scares me, but this guy does! Characters are amazing but no one is completely safe. My new favourite author. I couldn't wait to review him. Must read more now!

Loving these books, they really make you think... I absolutely implore you to have a gander. Anyway TTFN 😊 ENJOY 😈

I enjoyed it, maybe a little less than the first one at the beginning. I had really grown to love all the storylines in the first novel, so it was hard for me initially to experience new characters.

Vamps is by far my favorite character in the series. He is so earnest & loves his home. He's tough, yet sensitive.

Another awesome book!!

lain Rob Wright you continue to keep me coming back t read your books!! I can't wait to read what happens next in book 3.
The demons have come to take over the world. The very thing we all have nightmares about. I recommend this book to everyone who loves to be scared!

I would refer to this as book 1.5 rather than book 2 of the series. Focusing on some of the characters mentioned in book one and expanding on characters from the first, this book I found much easier to read and far more exciting than the first.

I'm excited for the third book especially with the new world order starting to become clearer and new characters to focus on.

please let there be book three!

I have just read this boo in one sitting a boo over five hours long and I couldn't put it down! Leaving just the two hours left to get some sleep please let there be book three in this series even if it means I never sleep again!

So far so good

Another great read in the series. I enjoyed the hearing the other side of encounters from the previous book while still advancing the main story.

You’ll be rooting for some characters you love and despising others. Makes for an entertaining read.

2nd book read from this author through his free offer, boy oh boy not a disappointing read at all. Loved the characters and the build up of the horror to come, have already read the following one in the series with equal joy

No disappointment in this second book of the series. A fast paced page turner in which we learn more about some of the key characters as well as meeting some new ones. I hated putting it down and am still intrigued about how the story is going to evolve.

On to number three

I just finished Legion. I am on to number three in the series. I will continue reading until I devour everything he has written.
If you are considering this series, it's worth your time.

Picked up perfectly from book one. Love the twisted story and subject matter. Great to follow a story from the perspective of multiple characters.

The second of the Hell on Earth series. Felt stilted at times and a little forced and predictable.

Terrible follow-up

Going back two weeks ruined the pacing. I ended up skipping the most of the first half. It did end well enough.

Can't wait for the next one. Hope the ending isn't too British. You know, everybody dies at the end and the bad guys win.
