But it doesn't finish. So many open ended plus I am so glad that he's writing a second book. this is one that ended way too fast for me. I would've loved to see it go on and on.
Michael Kramer is my favorite narrator. His voice fits any situation. The story is a short one but has characters that draw you in. A good read for those who like being the arm chair detective, or just like being surprised by a good ending. Some Harry Potter - school of magic feel to it.
Brandon Sanderson has yet to disappoint. Some times I read the details of his books and think " that doesn't sound like it will be entertaining" and yet every time it's AMAZING! If you are every I need of a new book or series to listen too, read ANYTHING by Brandon Sanderson, and you will walk away happy.
I like Brandon Sanderson more and more. This is the kind of book that, had I read it as a kid, would have hooked me to the idea of reading speculative fiction and fantasy. Convincing world building with lots of room for exploration and believable characters that are recognizable without being cliche. A suggested read!
This is my favorite book that I've listened to this year. I listen when I run and a book like this really engages your imagination, making the run go by a lot faster! I'm hoping the sequal comes out soon - loved it!
great characters, great narration and once again just such a great story.
It brings you in so gradually. I wasn't sure how I felt about this at first, got up to the third chapter and was still unsure until I realized how invested I was in the characters and what was happening.
Very enjoyable to listen to, with fantastic narration! Some of his concepts or theories seem illogical to me, but as long as I dont over scrutinize all the little details in Sanderson's new universe it all flows. Google rithmatic diagrams to a deeper understanding while you listen. I can't wait for the whole trilogy 4.5/5
I work in the Automotive business, I have been a manager for the last 12 years, I like to listen to books on my way to or home from work.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys other by Sanderson - I even felt it had a Harry Potter influence to this one.
