Legion was the last of his kind. He had travelled eons alone without contact with other life forms. His energy had been almost depleted. Clinging to the smallest spark of life, Legion was near insanity from surviving for so long amid the dark nothingness of space and time. Deprived of sensation and contact with other beings, Legion barely recognized the strange emotion that gripped him the moment he saw Anya -- Desire. She was the one. His destined mate. And he would have her...if only he could eliminate the annoying presence of another male, Zavier.
Perhaps Legion wasn't the last of this kind after all.
LEGION was expanded from an original short novella, and unfortunately it shows. Described as a story that features 2 heroes, Hero #2 (Zavier) shows up much too late in the story. Zavier does little to earn his "hero" status and this reader struggled to understand his appeal to anyone, including Anya. Zavier provides much needed conflict in the story, but really does nothing more than offer a slight contrast to Legion's character (Hero #1) and ramp up the sexual play of the story. Dropped subplots and the omission of a clear conclusion add frustration to an otherwise intriguing tale.
Anjou does manage to do a great job establishing a futuristic universe and it would be interesting to see what she is capable of creating if given more space to tell the story. Despite the wayward plot and problematic execution, LEGION is an entertaining, sensual read.

As a being of god-like perfection and power, Legion finds it difficult to understand human beings despite the similarities. He has lost his entire world and people. Anya is the answer to his loneliness, the perfect woman to call his mate. But just as the woman he desires is beginning to understand him better and open her heart to him, Zavier makes an appearance, only to complicate matters more. Who is Zavier? Zavier is someone who could be categorized, at least to Legion, as the worst person to arrive on the scene and the biggest threat to his newfound happiness.
I thought I knew what was going on in the first chapter of Legion. Wrong. This novel had enough plots twists to keep a seasoned reader like myself on the edge until the very end. The character development for Anya, Legion and Zavier is superb. Anya is intelligent and capable, facing off toe-to-toe with Legion and Zavier. Legion and Zavier are alpha males and certainly the least of their worries is yielding their all to Anya. This supreme alien duo seems invulnerable until you are offered a glimpse of what makes them tick through Anya's very perceptive human eyes. Dr. Rambo dissects them with everything she has as a medical professional, and still manages to do them justice, although at times Legion and Zavier are just plain ruthless.
I found myself holding my breath at each revelation, which is why I refuse to give away more. The sex is hot enough to detonate your brain. This is my first time reading Angelique Anjou's work, and the plan is to continue reading more of her books after Legion. I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a different spin on out-of-this world romance.
Legion was previously released in the anthology Pleasure Master - Phoenix Rising II.
