Legion and The Emperor's Soul

By: Brandon Sanderson
Location: Fic San
Genre: Sanderson- he gets his own! But if you don't know- he writes awesome Fantasy!

We have EVERY Sanderson book there is, we will get everyone he writes and the fan club at Cambridge High School is growing.
His books get issued to  students who are not frequent  library users, they sneak in here and gobble them up. This book has two short novels, one called Legion and the other The Emperor's Soul.
When we process this book- it will get the heavy duty treatment- tape all over it, we know it will be hot!!!

 LEGION ', is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society. The action ranges from the familiar environs of America to the ancient, divided city of Jerusalem. Along the way, Sanderson touches on a formidable assortment of complex questions: the nature of time, the mysteries of the human mind, the potential uses of technology, and the volatile connection between politics and faith. Resonant, intelligent, and thoroughly absorbing
 THE EMPEROR'S SOUL When Shai is caught replacing the Moon Scepter with her nearly flawless forgery, she must bargain for her life. An assassin has left the Emperor Ashravan without consciousness, a circumstance concealed only by the death of his wife. If the emperor does not emerge after his 100-day mourning period, the rule of the Heritage Faction will be forfeit and the empire will fall into chaos. Shai is given an impossible task: to create - to Forge - a new soul for the emperor in less than 100 days. But her soul-Forgery is considered an abomination by her captors. She is confined to a tiny, dirty chamber, guarded by a man who hates her, spied upon by politicians, and trapped behind a door sealed in her own blood. Shai's only possible ally is the emperor's most loyal councillor, Gaotona, who struggles to understand her true talent. Time is running out for Shai. Forging, while deducing the motivations of her captors, she needs a perfect plan to escape...
