I read the mistborn trilogy, thought it was decent, and am pleased with Sanderson's work on Wheel of Time (so far at least). But this book I couldn't get through. Forced myself to get through at least half, but had to put it down as the story is just not compelling. It feels like it is too ambitious a project for an author who is simply not ready for it. I think Sanderson has a lot to learn about character development and interesting dialog.
Read Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles instead.
The backstory into Dresden's family and past adds some interest to a character that is slowly deepening over the course of these fun bubble gum buffyesque stories. James Marsters' performance is always entertaining.
