Publisher's Summary

Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch.

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.

    "Brilliant"

    The story is thrilling and genius, taking you through every turn and twist of the fairy tales - and then a few more you'd never expect!
    Totally wish I could visit Elantris for real!

    "Well thought out characters and a plot that absorbs you! Didn't want it to end!"

    I thought it would be a simple fantasy but it's dimensions surprised me! I wish there was a sequel.

    Story
    "Boss!"

    This was an incredibly exciting and enjoyable book. The characters were well fleshed out, the dialogue on spot and there was a lovely mixture of humor and action throughout. The exploration of the themes of religion and faith was well done, and mirrored real life.

    I really enjoyed this book. This was not my first Sanderson, and it definitely will not be my last. I look forward to more From this tremendously creative and talented writer. For those who haven't, please read 'The Way of Kings' and 'Words of Radiance'. Fantastic stuff!

    Story
    "Worst. Sic-Fi. Ever."
    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    I didn't get to listen to this until a couple months after I bought it, so I couldn't return it, but I have not ever purchased an audible book I disliked more. It seemed to be a grab of the young adult story City of Ember which was much better.

    "Couldn't turn it off"

    I kept finding things to do just to listen. A story filled with fabulous characters, intrigue, and a nonstop enjoyment.

    "Ended Well"

    A interesting story. Long, but in the end enjoyable. The cliff hangers were a bit much and probably not needed

    Story
    "Pretty good. Must read for Brandon Sanderson fans"

    This is his first published novel. That being said it is good. I always appreciate Brandon's inventiveness in the methods of magic. It is worth a listen but do not expect the quality of the Mistborn or Stormlight Archives series. The production quality is so so. The audible chapter splits and actual chapter splits are not in sync. The narration is passable.

    "Good play"

    The man narrating doesn't really fit the story of characters, but does a good job for the most part
