    A Song for Arbonne is Guy Gavriel Kay's critically acclaimed fantasy of love, both courtly and forbidden, and of kingdoms endlessly opposed - one dominated by male rulers and their male god, the other guided by women and their goddess.

    "Meh."
    Overall

    It's not terrible, but it's not riveting. Although it's a bit verbose. Get through the first third and the pace picks up while the story grows more cohesive.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    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?"
    "Amazing!!"
    Overall

    This book is amazing. Believable, complex characters in a rich and inventive world. Sanderson nails it! I've recommend this book to anyone who will listen, and it leaves everyone with a smile and a hunger for MORE. The only unhappy aspect of this book is that it's all alone. Should have at least been a trilogy.
