Elantris was built on magic and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade and Elantris began to rot. Now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris, and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots?
Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

With the price of one credit and at the length of three normal books it it a great find if you, like me, enjoy long books or series of books. But the downside is that it is slower and not as refreshing as Sanderson's other works. Likable characters with developed individual story arcs helped carry the book along.
The primary story picked up some speed for the last parts of the book and that helped my overall impression.
It was my first experience with Jack Garrett as narrator. I found his pacing too slow to and the length of the breaks between sentences even worse. I almost ended up listening to the book at. x2 speed. If you think this might annoy you, be careful.
I rate this book in comparison with Sandersons other works which I really, really enjoyed. On its own I might have given it an extra star.

I started to write a long and not so positive review, but I changed my mind as I was going through it! Its a good book. Not the best or the worst but more than good enough!
My only problem is that I want The Stormlight Archive NOW!!!! ;)
Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite authors so not reading his books is actually not possible. Just read it... Its worth far more that 1 credit!
