I was introduced to Brandon Sanderson through his work on Robert Jordan's series The Wheel of Time. Being curious how he fared on his own work I purchased Elantris. I was not disappointed. He weaves an almost fairy-tale like story of a cursed city, clashes of politics and religions, and an unlikely love story. I found myself sucked into his world and very satisfied at the end. The characters tend to be a little too cliche but I didn't mind it. The narrator does a great job as well. If you want a great story and don't want to get sucked into a series I recommend this book.
A wonderfully enchanting tale that sucks you in from the beginning. If you are in the mood for a story like a fairy tale this is the book for you. Set in a somewhat medieval place this is the story of a young woman that has chosen to live as a boy to watch over "The Folk". A creepy magical people that live beneath people's houses and cause general havoc for everyone when they are not tamed by the Keeper. Corrina, the Folk Keeper, plans to stay and tend the Folk forever when she is visited by a Lord Martin who takes her away to a new life, and a place where she discovers many secrets about herself and the world around her. Just a fun read. I would highly recommend this if you have an afternoon to spend in dreamy repose.
I really enjoyed the latest installment of the WoT. Sanderson has picked up the flag and continued this amazing story. I will tell you one thing this story keeps you guessing. You find yourself going through a myriad of emotions as this book unfolds and by the end I have to admit you do feel a bit like Sam the Hobbit at the Gates of Moridor trying to get in. There is a portion missing out of the recording which didn't make me too happy, but other than that I really loved it.
This is one of my favorite books. I am not a romance novel lover by nature but this is one that many would enjoy. The reader does an excellent job drawing you into the story. You find yourself lost on an estate hidden from the world with the lovely Lady Donna and the mysterious French Pirate that "vacations" on her land. If you would like to have a good read that will carry you away on an adventure and make you think in the end this is the book for you.
