Brandon is a very accomplished storyteller. His stories are expansive and easy to relate to on a personal side. The Main Character here is a dreamer focused on vengeance due to the murder of his father. Young idealistic, David goes where angels fear to tread because he has faith. He meets up with a group of human heroes "the reckoners" whom he has always wanted to join. This good versus evil romp is action-packed and fun for listeners.
I really liked it and Sanderson keeps it all neatly together. Great performance as well by narrator. my only regret, being spoiled by long epic fantasy novels, is that it's a bit short. It's enough story wise but sometimes you just want to indulge and spoil yourself with extra-extra topping. Right? Then that feeling would be the proof that you've just really enjoyed yourself. Thank you Brandon, yet again!
What a great story and production. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good read or listen. It was very well performed and red
I loved how it was narrated with each character having a different voice! Sanderson's gift of creating amazing stories was enhanced in this audiobook, and it was a great listen while going about my day.
While I loved the premise of the new world order, the love story portion of the story was a little predictable from the beginning.
What helped to impact the love story was what happens when epics use their powers, and for that reason I gave the book an overall 5-stars.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
This is the type of story that sneaks up on you. I absolutely love the way the author portrays the villains in the story, and all the clever situations the story takes you through. The narrator is top notch, channeling emotions into the scenes and giving each character a voice. From the prologue, a terrible thing happens and the narrator's voice cracks while he describes it, making it feel more real.
Brandon Sanderson is an amazing writer and storyteller. His stories never fail to entertain. The narrator here is one of the best I've heard. Very engaging and difficult to stop once started.
