    New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson is widely celebrated for his Mistborn Trilogy and contribution to the final three books of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. In The Emperor's Soul, a Forger named Shai can copy and re-create any item by using magic to rewrite its history. After being condemned to death for attempting to steal the emperor's scepter, Shai is given one final chance. She' ll be allowed to live if she can create a new soul for the emperor, who hovers near death.

    Would you listen to The Emperor's Soul again? Why?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this because I liked Brandon Sanderson's other work. I don't regret the purchase, but I can't really recommend it, either. It fits with his usual themes, but the story just isn't as engaging as I have come to expect from him. Perhaps that's. due to the short format, but I didn't have any attachment to his characters and cared very little about the outcome. There are some religious musings and interesting metaphors but overall I just don't feel that this ranks anywhere near his better work.

    I'm not picky about my voice actors, but I have no real complaints about this one, other than a single slip of the tongue that really didn't matter.
