Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book, based on an outline from Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski (so you know it's official), covers the period in B5's history detailing the continuing rule of Emperor Londo Mollari's of Centauri Prime, all while under the thumb of the Drakh.
As the Drakh continue the plans of the Shadows, their former masters, forces start brewing both on and off Centauri Prime once certain people learn what's going on. And the Drakh attack on Earth sure didn't help much.
This book continues to fill in the twenty-year gap at the end of the Babylon 5 series, and is just as riveting as the show, because we know what happens, and when, but these books explain how and why. Strongly recommended.

This middle part of the trilogy is the best page-turner of the three. While Emperor Mollari becomes increasingly irrelevant to events on his world, the government around him grows into something he would not have dreamed and is powerless to stop. His former attache, Vir Cotto, finds the undying love of a beautiful woman and is, to his credit, ambivalent about the whole affair. And the much-beloved techno-mage Galen makes some beautifully crafted appearances, filling in his time away from the Excalibur during the same time frame of the "Crusade" series.
This volume gathers nearly the entire cast of characters from "Babylon 5," as they relate to the Centauri homeworld, and uses them variously as foils or informing observers to the action going on with Londo, Vir, and several other major Centauri characters introduced in the first book. The Drakh, imitating their Shadow masters as the universe's newest evil puppeteers, are setting up the Centauri as their unwitting allies, and one Centauri stands in their way. On to book three...

Great continuity of the best trilogy. Out of all chracters Vir is most unlikely to become leader of the resistance. Very good character development. This Trilogy supposed to be on the reading list of every B5 fan

I just finished reading Jeanne Cavelos series on the Techno-Mages before reading this series. The difference in quality is amazing. Deep vs. shallow.
I read the book, but it had the cheap knock-off feel that so many spin off books have.

The middle part of the Centauri Trilogy dwells on Vir and his personal growth from a bumbling, affable, goof to the man who will save Centauri Prime from the Drahk. The events eading up to his change are believable and very well written.
The machintion of Lord durla are also intriguing to anyone interested in Machiavellian political maneuverings. This is a fantastic bridge in the trilogy and well worth a read.

This is a good book for Babylon 5 fans. It dives deeper into the problems that led to the destruction of Centari Prime(the second time) and the eventual liberation of the Centari. Well writen and fast paced. But noy as good as the Techno mage trilogy

Picking up where the first book in the trilogy left off, this book focuses on Vir. At the end of THE LONG NIGHT OF CENTAURI PRIME, Vir had been banished from the palace by Londo. This book opens as the techno-mages find him and they set off to find the truth behind the excavation at K0643. But that is not the end of the evil influence of the Drakh over Centauri Prime. Slowly, Vir realizes he must start taking action if he is to save his world.
Peter David continues to shine as a writer in this book. Once again, the characterizations from the series are perfect, and the references to events in both Babylon 5 and Crusade make the book lots of fun for the devoted fan. Vir changes dramatically in this book into a leader. Yet he powerfully retains his innocence and soul. The book leaves you anxious to pick up the last book in the series to get the full picture of the events from WAR WITHOUT END.
That is my main problem with the story, however. After the build up of the first book, this one seems to drag in spots. It's like it knows it's just the placeholder between the opening and ending of the trilogy. It's still worth reading; I was just expecting a bit more after the excellent first book.
Once again, the devoted Babylon 5 fan will enjoy this look into the story hinted at but never told in the series itself. Readers not familiar with the series will still enjoy the story without being lost, but they won't fully grasp everything happening. Either way, it will leave the reader anxious for the conclusion to the story of Centauri Prime.

There is NO QUESTION that this trilogy (Legions of Fire) did not skip a beat where the PSI CORPS/Bester (J. Gregory Keyes) books left off. Words can not describe this trilogy, so I suggest you add it to your cart and read it! You'll be glad you did!
