I loved this book so much that when I was done reading it, I've turned around to listen to it on audiobook. I haven't read that many fantasy series but this one is one of my favorites.
Dune made me realize that I like Sci-Fi, but Mistborn has sunk the hook even deeper. Sanderson has quite the imagination, and Kramer does a very good job of narration.
You will not likely regret the choice to listen to this series. Mr Sanderson has developed a imaginative magic system that is well thought out and plays nicely throughout the entire series. There are unexpected turns and pitfalls that also have a lasting impact on the series. The main characters are not elementary and questions of good and evil are not so clearly cut.
I fell into it on a whim mostly, wanting to get a feel for the author of the final WOT books and fell in love the the books.
The audio is excellent (those familiar with the audio versions of WOT will recognize Michael Kramer's skill here).
OK, I only got this book because I needed something to listen to and it had pretty good reviews. I am so glad I did. The story was very unique and powerful. That description really didn't to the book justice. I really hope this author has more good things to follow.
Absolutely one of the best Audible experiences ever. A fantastic story with an extraordinary narrator. This volume holds its own a a single book, but leave you anxious for more.
Don't miss this one!
What a unique storyline! Sanderson creates a world totally unlike any fantasy series I've read so far. I just came off the Wheel of Time series (which I hear Sanderson will be completing, rest in peace Robert Jordan).
I'm excited to complete this series and see where Sanderson takes WOT!
I was surprised how much I liked this. Michael Kramer is, as always, brilliant as a narrator. The characters were likable and distinct. Very well crafted bit of non-standard fantasy fiction. I really appreciated that the story line was not a cardboard cut-out of every other fantasy novel out there. Looking forward to the next two in the series.
This is another great Sanderson book. After listening to Elantris I decided to pick up this series, they kept me engaged from beginning to end.
Hi Really enjoyed this series. It kept me entertained and the author pulled me into the characters. Both my husband and I enjoyed it! I recommend it.
