    i loved this whole series, but this was probably my least favorite book. i feel like there could have been more explanation/exploration of the "dream sequence" but overall, very entertaining.

    Sonea, former street urchin, now a Black Magician, is horrified when her son, Lorkin, volunteers to assist Dannyl in his new role as Guild Ambassador to Sachaka, a land still ruled by cruel black magicians. When word comes that Lorkin has gone missing Sonea is desperate to find him, but if she leaves the city she will be exiled forever, and besides, her old friend Cery needs her help.

    Great Trilogy, I liked all three books. However, you need to read the Black Magician Trilogy first to get alot of the background needed to understand/follow the back story.

    Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about them and their unique magic. But the Traitors are reluctant to trade their knowledge for the Healing they so desperately want, and while he assumes they fear revealing their existence to the world, there are hints they have bigger plans. Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever, but the rouge's influence over the city's underworld is far greater than she feared. His only weakness is the loss of his mother, now locked away in the Lookout.

    Relieved that Lorkin is coming home, Sonea prepares to meet with the traitors on behalf of the Guild. Then bad news arrives: The Sachakan king has imprisoned her son.

    As the Sachakan king tries to force Lorkin into betraying the traitors, Dannyl questions his friendship with Ashaki Achati. Can he trust the Sachakan? Not at all, if Tayend is right. But do Tayend’s suspicions spring from good political instincts, or jealousy? Easily evading capture by the Guild, the Rogue knows only one obstacle lies between him and his ambition to rule the underworld: Cery.

    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?"
    "Absolutly Amazing - an Epic Fantasy MUST READ."

    What made the experience of listening to Elantris the most enjoyable?

    I love Brandon Sanderson! Good character development, strong main characters and strong supporting characters, and all the story lines were tied up in the end. LOVED IT!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Elantris?

    I don't want to ruin it! You have to read it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to give anything away!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    YES! Again - I don't want to ruin the story for anyone... the book had layers of politics and romance, with a unique epic fantasy storyline I hadn't encountered before. AWESOME READ!


    Any additional comments?

    My other favorite epic fantasy stories are: The Wheel of Time, The Sword of Truth, The Black Magician Trilogy, The Night Angel Trilogy, The Hungaring Saga, The Mageborn Trilogy, The Kingkiller Chronicles, Mistborn, The Codex Alera...etc... If you liked any of these, fantasies - i'm sure you'll love Elantris.

    Would you try another book from Stephenie Meyer and/or Kate Reading?

    I liked the Twilight books (guilty pleasure) so I figured I would try Meyer's other novel - Host. It was weird, and at times, confusing. Maybe this just wasnt a good book for me. I usually read epic series like: The Wheel of Time, Sword of Truth, Alerian Codex, Black Magician Trilogy, the Hungering Saga, Mistborn... etc...

    So overall, I probably wouldn't buy another Stephanie Meyer book myself. However, I might listen to another one if a friend lent it to me.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The ending was so abrupt and kind of left you hanging... no hint of a sequel or any kind of real resolution.


    Was The Host worth the listening time?

    not to me. I would have enjoyed listening to something else. But since I had purchased the book, I forced myself to finish listening to it to justify the expense. Hoping it would get better...
