    They say Black Dow has killed more men than winter and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbor, is not about to stand by smiling while Black Dow claws his way any higher. The orders have been given, and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

    Matt Carothers says: "Thank you, Joe Abercrombie!"
    "Enjoyed this story"
    Overall

    Some have complained about the narrator - he's not the best but he's not bad. Some characters he does exceptionally well, others . . .so so. Overall, the story is just as dark and twisted as Joe's other material - I loved it.

    Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch, and Publishers Weekly says his debut is "outstanding." Once the godlike rulers of the capital of Arelon, the inhabitans of Elantris have been imprisoned within themselves, unable to die after the city's magic failed years ago. But when a new prince falls victim to the curse, he refuses to accept his fate.

    Lore says: "What if your body could never heal?"
    "Not bad - not great"
    Overall

    Not a bad story - I purchased this one because I loved the Mistborn series and wanted to hear more of Brandon's work. Overall, it was not a bad story but the middle is a bit slow and some plot points are predictable. Other than that, it was not a bad listen. It definately reflects one of Brandon's earlier works.
