excellent story, we'll thought out magic system, strong characters, bit shorter than I would light but it made for a very pleasant read. one of Brandon's better books
My favorite Sanderson, a tiny treasure that burrowed into my own soul and has remained part of me for years. The narrator is wonderful. She's the very best I've yet heard, and I love that she's making a way for talented women in the field.
Excellent concept and execution. Like a delicious meal that I expect I will enjoy many times.
Say something about yourself!
This was billed as Elantris 2, but if you don't pay attention you could easily miss the few offhand references to things from Elantris. The story is set long after Elantris and is enjoyable. Like all of Brandon Sanderson's work, it's got interesting characters, good world building (although maybe although bit sparse here), and a fascinating magic system.
My downgrade to 4 stars is just because it's NOT Elantris 2 (simply a story set in what is barely recognizable as the same world), and because, while I liked the story, I don't really care if there are any follow-ons to it.
The narration was excellent.
It was shorter and less in-depth than his other works. Narrator was monotonous at times but I might feel that way only because I just finished a graphic audio version of Elantris #1 that had amazing audio detail. With that said, I don't know why this was grouped with Elantris as it has absolutely nothing to do with that book. Overall, the story was good and I wouldn't mind reading more about this main character's adventures.
I love the concept of forging a soul for the basis of a story. There was good character development for the main characters.
Short yet complex story with unexpected character development. The resolution had a few unexpected twists and turns but was satisfying and reasonably complete
