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 :)

About the book:
The Darkness will do anything to slay all those who stand in their way of corrupting mankind. Light bearers, those born to protect mankind, must face an immortal seductress as she attempts to bring forth the Legion of Demons.

Thrust into the battle between light and dark, Doctor Patricia Leland and Light-bearer David Ravenbrook must do all they can to protect five year old Jason Hansen from evil, but at the same time, figure out the plans of the darkness before mankind is lost forever…if they can.

  • “If I could change it all, would you accept it?”

  • “I can tell you that you have a guardian angel right next to you now. All I can see is his energy.”

  • “No! This child belongs to the light!”

  • Excerpt:
    The pleasure in his eyes was instant. His loneliness melted away and he felt wanted again. He smiled and started to imagine this beautiful woman as his partner and all the things they could do together. Then he felt her hands on his neck and the pressure. She chanted quietly to herself. At first confusion set in. He thought she just liked it rough, but reality soon became apparent and he started to choke. Within seconds he was dead.

    Clara got off him and stood by the bed. She knew it would happen quickly and she was excited. She didn’t have long to wait, before the body of the man arched its back and inhaled deeply and loudly.

    The face turned to look at her and she knew straight away the demon was in him. His eyes were completely black and the familiar odour of the darkness filled the room. The chest heaved as the demon relished in the pleasure of breathing in the earth’s oxygen; something it hadn’t experienced for hundreds of years.
    Clara released the bindings holding the limbs, allowing the demon to sit up and look around. He smiled. She was instructed to acquire a strong healthy body and she hadn’t let him down. He could feel the muscle fibres and the lean limbs over strong, solid bones. He felt the lungs breathing in the sweet air and he could smell the sickly scent of a world with too much light and hope.
