wot is pooh compared to this brandon should suspend all othe projects and continue this story I think i am leaking a little stormlight as I wait
Brandon Sanderson, you out did yourself this time. This is a wonderful story and I enjoyed every minute of it. Using Michael Kramer and Kate Reading as your narrators, this book deserves 5 stars...
For the fantasy and SciFi fans out there, this is well worth your time. The Audiobook is as well produced as any I have experienced. And I enjoyed this experience very much. I look forward to the following volume.
One note to the publisher, and to audible, you give away a significant spoiler about Shallan in the last paragraph of the description. I only realized this after I completed this book. It should be removed, as it gives away far too much.
This mountain of books isn't going to listen to itself.
I loved this book.. Michael and Kate did a good job here. I dont love those two but the book is just dam good. I think Brandon had some hard times early in his career but this book is WORTH IT! BREAK OUT NOVEL
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Not familiar with Sanderson previously even though my wife has been a fan for ages. High quality story-telling and an interesting, quirky-but-understandable world. Again, this would be an excellent entry for Audible to include maps and other supporting info on their site as geography looms large in this story.
Was gratified to not be faced with another "orphan doesn't know their destiny - but it's a good one" premise. This book avoids these obvious pitfalls and surefootedly leads you down a story path where the "oh, here it comes, this is where that guy dies" expectation is shattered and replaced with unexpected events that force readers to review their prejudices. A few bits of repetition but not without reason.
Look no further...
This is the book you are looking for! Prepare to be unproductive as you find yourself addicted to this masterful epic tale.. You will find yourself dropping all your responsibilities staying up late nights, sitting in your car for to long afer getting home, and sneaking in moments at your lunch break to renter this uncanny world Sanderson creates. If I could, I would give this book a full 10 stars. It is a masterpiece and one of the best books I have ever read! I read the Mistborn Trilogy and fell in love with Brandon Sanderson, I expected this book to be of similar quality. I'm quite shocked that he could write a book better than the Mistborn Trilogy. I'm very impressed and have now found a new favorite author. I believe I will be reading all the works of Brandon Sanderson. DO NOT PASS UP THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!
I'm fairly new to sci fi epic but got hooked with the Wheel of Time trilogy and have not been able to find another to equal it. This one on the other hand has me on edge waiting for the next book... Cant wait! I'm not sure if I liked the way it ended but it sure left you on the edge of your seat. Definitely recommend.
This first volume of Sanderson's latest series is engaging from the first paragraphs. New "magics", ecologies, and societal hierarchies envisioned are interesting and not so overwhelming that they take away from the main characters individual pursuits. I enjoyed it completely. Each point of view brought information and events that leant to a whole. Highly recommended for those looking for more than a quick afternoon read and enjoy the journey more than the destination.
As someone that has read a listened to many fantsy books this has to be one of best starting book of any series I have read.
