THE LEGION AWAKES
It's here! The new military science fiction adventure by JR Handley, set in the worlds of the Human Legion, explodes into action today with The Legion Awakes.
A century ago, all but two members of Lance Scipio’s unit were executed.
Now he is woken into a strange new time, and tasked with whipping into shape the worst squad of misfits in the entire Human Marine Corps.
THE PRICE OF FAILURE: DEATH!
2565AD. Tranquility-4 near the frontier of the White Knight Empire. Guided by mysterious orders, the authorities at the Human Marine Corps base of Beta City thaw Lance Scipio. In 2441, an entire Marine company was executed with the exception of Captain Grimgerde and Sergeant Lance Scipio, the usual punishment for running in the face of the enemy. But these two were preserved… as if they would be required in the future.
Scipio is not expected to escape execution for long, but he has been given a slim chance. For a Marine, a chance can be all that’s needed to change the fate of worlds…
The Sleeping Legion is a breakneck new sequence of military science fiction novels set in the worlds of the international bestselling series: ‘The Human Legion’.
The Legion Awakes is out now in paperback, and a Kindle edition at the limited-time special launch price of 99c or local equivalent. The second novel in the series, Fortress Beta City is out now too.

But, hold! Who is this JR Handley anyway? I've just given him an in-depth interview you can read here.
The hero of the books is one Lance Scipio. He's young, but he's already had one grueling adventure as a Marine. You can read about this in the prequel novella: The Demons of Kor-Lir. The Kindle edition of this book is free and exclusive to signed up Legionaries (you can enlist here). Or you can buy the paperback here.
Fortress Beta City, the second Sleeping Legion novel is out now. Follow this link for more details...
