A Brutal and Thrilling Horror Epic

What happens in Vegas…slays in Vegas.

Legion is a teacher. An avenging angel. A murderer.

A madman.

Raised in the underground hideout of an insane father, he now travels the world searching for those who torment the weak, who harm the innocent. He uncovers the secrets and sins of evildoers, and teaches them how to leave those mistakes behind.

Even if it means killing them to do it.

But this time, the tables have turned. The ghosts of Legion’s past have come for him; the victims of his madness have returned to torment and destroy him. Wounded, weak, near death: for the first time, Legion is not predator, but prey.

Now, aided by a woman and her daughter—who have themselves been surviving in secret terror for a decade—he must survive long enough to battle his past, to destroy the ghosts that have come for his sanity and soul…and to kill all who would harm his new friends.

Tracked by a crime family more twisted than anything he has ever seen, threatened by a madman whose strength is greater than anything he has ever experienced, Legion has never been closer to danger. They want his pain. They want his death. And they will stop at nothing to achieve their aims.

But Legion is a good teacher. So he will run. He will hide.

And then, when the students are ready…he will teach.

And his lessons are always murder.

Stranger Sins by Michaelbrent Collings is a beautifully written horror novel that swallows the reader whole from the get-go. I couldn’t put the book down and found myself finishing it in one sitting.

Tell Me More

Stranger Sins by Michaelbrent Collings is an otherworldly fever dream. Collings’ writing is like liquid, in that it is smooth, haunting and at once intoxicating. Upon picking up the book, I felt like I couldn’t put it down because I was so entranced by the writing and how vividly the story played out.

Legion is a character who made me feel very conflicted. As the story progressed, I found myself becoming attached to him, but also afraid. Since this is the first book that I have read by Collings, I was curious to learn more about Legion and his background, so I was appreciative that the story went back and forth in time to give the reader more information on him. He has a dark past that is linked heavily to who has become, and I felt that this gave great depth to his character.

I do have to mention that Stranger Sins is an ideal horror novel for fans of the genre who are partial to gore. It is filled with gore and carnage, but in a way that is not needless. The brutality was almost poetic as it related to the storyline, and the way it was written out was beautiful. Collings’ writing style is artistic which I feel makes him stand out in this genre.

I highly recommend that you check out Stranger Sins if you are ready for a blood bath that is paired with an exceptionally deep storyline. This is the first book that I have read by Collings, but I am looking forward to reading more of his novels that feature Legion. He is one of the most profound horror characters I have read about, and I see him becoming a favorite of readers far and wide.
