Item Description...
Overview
Their dark legacy dates from before the dawn of recorded human history. Their reach echoes through the ages, an evil too terrible to comprehend and a strength to rival the greatest angels of heaven and the foulest of the fallen in hell. They are Legion, a horde of countless demons acting as one, united in mind and purpose. When Scott Macklin's father dies, Scott begins to uncover the secrets behind his father's involvement with a mysterious group known as The Shadowed Ones. With a conspiracy of dark forces pressing in from every side, Scott finds that he is not alone in opposing Legion. He is joined by Douglas Prichard, a dedicated military commander; Father William Los Cruzco, a priest with a shady past; and Dr. Rachel Walters, a skilled hostage negotiator. Together they must face this force of darkness known as Legion. With little but their faith to guide them, they must hold back a rising tide of evil that threatens to consume the souls of all mankind, without falling prey to their own human failings.

Excellent  Nov 2, 2007
I read hundreds of books each year and have found this to be right up there with the best. many twists and turns with an excellent theme! Thank you! I look forward to Legions Against the Temple.
 
The Thinking Man's Thriller  Apr 15, 2006
Vernon Buford is a welcomed new talent to my bookshelf. His book Shadows of Legion is fantastic. I read a lot, and it's been quite some time since I've read a book with such passion and drive as this one. Buford has the uncanny ability to rivet you to your seat as the pages fly by. Great action, visual descriptions and plot. Also, the characters are fleshed out, fully dimensional beings.

This book can best be described as a spiritual thriller as four, unrelated characters come together to solve a dark mystery: an evil demonic force that threatens us all.

The one flaw I see is that he needs a better editor. There were a few minor typos, but they hardly distract you from such a fine story and fast-paced plot. I would like like to see Buford find a larger publisher or purhaps turn SOL into a film.

If this is a series, I can't wait to see the next book. I'm so looking foward to more work from such a terrific new talent.
 
Original and Talented  Nov 28, 2005
With the title and subtitle in mind, I opened this book expecting a politically charged End Times thriller in the vein of the Left Behind series. To my relief, "Shadows of Legion" never focused too long on politics, and spent even less time in the muddy bogs of Biblical prophecies and interpretation. I ignored the editorial errors (such as the spelling of Henry Kissinger's name); I overlooked the continual defiance of point-of-view issues that are usually signs of an amateur writer; and I jumped into the story.

Or maybe Vernon Buford dragged me in. He's much too talented to be ignored.

Although Buford starts his thriller with a funeral, he keeps things lively, quickly shifting into high gear. I raced through the first half of the book, waiting to discover the connections between a priest in South America, a CIA operative, a female hostage negotiator, and a homeless man. Buford spins somes breathtaking scenes, mixing fresh dialogue with serious research and some supernatural undertones. I was hooked.

The story continues at a fast clip, but begins to stumble under its own weight. A mysterious government-threatening document is never fully explained; a last-second escape seems a bit sudden and hard to swallow; and some demonic activity stretches the bounds of theology (in the Bible, demons deliver violence only through human hosts).

Nevertheless, Vernon Buford proves that he can tell a compelling story full of interesting characters, spiritual insights, and creative action. I will never forget some of the wild scenes contained in "Shadows of Legion." The incident in the crane is fantastic. For those hoping to find an original and talented author, look no further. Vernon Buford has what it takes and, with a good editor, he is poised to shake the shelves of Christian fiction.
 
GREAT BOOK  Mar 15, 2005
THIS WAS A GREAT BOOK, VERNON BUFORD HAS GREAT TALENT LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE BOOKS FROM HIM
 
Great first novel  Nov 18, 2004
Shadows of Legion is a page-turner, full of action and emotion. Vernon really does his research when it comes to setting up a scene, describing a construction site from an architects point of view with amazing clarity; detailing the rain-soaked streets of Seattle really made me want to head over to Freeway Park with book in hand. I would almost compare Vernon to the author Dan Brown in this trait. They both set you down into a scene and you feel like you're really right there with the protagonist. Awesome.
Another nice surprise for a first-time author is how Vernon quick-cuts his scenes and bounces between the main characters when the action gets heavy. Very much like a good director on set, this keeps you riveted to the pages. It's like watching the last 20 minutes of a George Lucas movie.
If I had to critisize anything in this book, it would be how the book left off. I had so many questions... well I won't give any spoilers in this review. I'm anxiosly awaiting books 2 and 3, you can't leave us hanging this way!
