The book was written with very juvenile copy. This book might be suitable for a 10-14 year old, but not for an adult (words like "Sparks" and "Calamity" substituting swear words as examples).
Sure, but not this series
Not really...childish in nature and somewhat predictable.
This is a must read from Sanderson. Very cool story, and it's a nice change of pace for him. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars is because I reserve that for something truly special (like Mistborn). I can't wait to read the sequel
like "wild cards" but cleaner and a lot more fun. because let's be honest. how much sex and cursing can you have? this book doesn't. characters are awesome and believable. feels pretty true to how people would be if they woke up tomorrow as "gods". leaves you wanting the next book. which I'm gonna go find now.
What an incredible thrill! This exhilarating book is yet another testament to Brandon Sanderson's creative genius! This book had plot twists and turns that I hadn't seen coming and what a joy of was to be transported into another reality both from the brilliant mind of its author! Beautiful! I can't wait to start Firefight and conclude the story with Calamity! Thank you Brandon, thank you!
I love Brandon Sanderson. He re-kindled my passion for the fantasy genre. I am a very open minded reader but am proud to have retained my ability to smell a stinker. My Sanderson fan boy inside me doubts the man could write a stinker, so far he's right. Objectively speaking, this book isn't vastly different from his others in terms of professional storytelling, world building, and character development. His style of dropping little clues and tieing them all together for an epic climax still manages to come through in this YA novel. If you are a fan of super power individuals, fantasy, or just in the mood for a good book/great listen please check this out.
