    "we need/want more Branson sanderson clones"

    one of the best stories in the cosemere sorry section. I still wish it would get is own full book, but Brandon hasn't learned how to split himself into 6 people to do everything his fans want him to do. not yet anyway.

    "One of my favorites "

    I love all Brandon's books, but this one is such a sweet pearl. I've listened to it about ten times over the last couple years, and I'll probably listen to it that many again over the next few.

    "Exquisite Work of Art "

    My favorite Sanderson, a tiny treasure that burrowed into my own soul and has remained part of me for years. The narrator is wonderful. She's the very best I've yet heard, and I love that she's making a way for talented women in the field.

    Story
    "Not Elantris 2, but Good"

    This was billed as Elantris 2, but if you don't pay attention you could easily miss the few offhand references to things from Elantris. The story is set long after Elantris and is enjoyable. Like all of Brandon Sanderson's work, it's got interesting characters, good world building (although maybe although bit sparse here), and a fascinating magic system.

    My downgrade to 4 stars is just because it's NOT Elantris 2 (simply a story set in what is barely recognizable as the same world), and because, while I liked the story, I don't really care if there are any follow-ons to it.

    The narration was excellent.

    Story
    "It was good, but not great."

    It was shorter and less in-depth than his other works. Narrator was monotonous at times but I might feel that way only because I just finished a graphic audio version of Elantris #1 that had amazing audio detail. With that said, I don't know why this was grouped with Elantris as it has absolutely nothing to do with that book. Overall, the story was good and I wouldn't mind reading more about this main character's adventures.
