    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    I was a little worried about getting this book because I didn't know if it was really my cup of tea but after only about a hour in I was hooked. I plan to buy the rest of the series.

    An author whose previous, wildly successful novels have earned him a reputation as fantasy's master of magic, Brandon Sanderson continues to dazzle audiences with this tale of princesses and gods. In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

    This book is great. Like all of Brandon Sanderson's books, it has a unique magic system, great story, and leaves you wanting more. I can't believe he didn't turn this in to a series.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    This book is what first turned me on to Brandon Sanderson's books. To this day it remains my favorite book series. There is nothing bad you can say about these books. Fantastic plot, amazing magic system, the settings are stunning, Characters are all very unique.
    10 out of 10.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    This novel is a little slower then some of Brandon Sanderson's other other books but it is still fantastic. Like always he has developed a magic system new and exiting. A true work of art!

    When a disabled spaceship enters Earth's atmosphere, seven members of the advanced Tosok race are welcomed by the world. Then a popular scientist is murdered, and all evidence points to one of the Tosoks. Now, an alien is tried in a court of law -and there may be far more at stake than accounting for one human life.

    The book starts off great but quickly becomes boring. I kept waiting for something to happen, alien's to invade, mass destruction, just something... but nothing ever did. If you enjoy classical novels like To Kill a Mockingbird then this book might be for you. I personally find this kind of thing boring. Who wants to read about a court case? No one, that's why people get out of doing jury duty.

    Lanik Mueller is a "rad" - radical regenerative - a freak who can regenerate injured flesh...and trade extra body parts to the Offworld oppressors for iron. On a planet without hard metals, or the means of escape, iron offers the promise of freedom through the chance to build a spacecraft. But it is a promise which may never be fulfilled, as Lanik uncovers a treacherous conspiracy beyond his imagination.

    Orson Scott Card really out did himself with this one. The first three hours are going to be a little weird but if you can make it past that, you wont regret it. The book becomes so fast paced that if you were to listen to 10 minutes of it, it would take you 10 minutes to describe what is happening to some one else. Trust me, you have to read this book!

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I wouldn't wish this book on anyone.


    What about Sam Tsoutsouvas’s performance did you like?

    Sam is a talented narrator and quite honestly is the only reason I was able to finish listening to this book.


    Could you see Wizard's First Rule being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO! I would rather have a prostate exam rather then to see this piece of trash in the theater.

    There are so many things wrong with this book I don't even know where to begin.
    The romance was a joke. Both characters were showing signs of being in love from chapter one, ridiculous.
    I couldn't stand all the talking creatures. A wolf, a faerie thing, a dragon! The thought of still makes me mad and I finished this thing weeks ago.
    The magic system is aweful. I am more a fan of Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan, magic should have rules. But not in this book they don't. What you can do magic? Then you have the power of the gods! It was absurd! Magic should not be used to get the characters out of every situation.
    Well I'm done ranting. If I haven't helped you decide not to waste a credit on this book yet, well then your probably going to buy it anyway.
