I absolutely adore this series, and it's brought to life beautifully by Simon Vance's top-notch narration, but this installment was very uneventful.
I like weeks, but the great plot and interesting world of this entry are nearly ruined by a jarring, Inappropriately placed surfer-stereotype accent on an otherwise eloquent character.
Personally, I ate up every moment of this book, and was left hungry for more. A great deal of it is an exercise in world-building though, and those looking for something fast-paced or an introduction to the genre may fare better with Sanderson's earlier Trilogy, Mistborn.
The extremely poor narration performance kept me from finishing this book. I love Brandon Sanderson's stories, but this has been the ONLY book thus far that I've not been able to listen to all the way through.
Looks like I'll have to pick up a physical copy of this book if I ever want to read it.
