I enjoyed the book, but not enough to give it four stars and I am trying to figure out why as I type this review. I think the main reason would be the lack of really interesting characters. The characters were enjoyable overall and I liked all of them, but they were kind of...expected? Compared to my favorite characters by Sanderson (Ais, Hrathen) there were none that really stood out.

I think most of the reason I only gave it 3 is because I've read so many of Sanderson's works that a large amoun...more

[First note: this book has not been published, and is only available from the author himself. If you go to his website and email him requesting this and White Sand (another unpublished work), he will likely send them to you. What a guy!]

Probably like 3.7-3.8 stars. Certainly not Sanderson's best work, but who would expect that from an early, unpublished, unpolished story? Lots of spelling and grammar issues that would easily be solved once it goes through revision and editing. That being said, I...more

Aside from the Liar of Partinel fragment, this is the most promising of Brandon's unpublished works in rotation. I liked the portrayal of a real and overwhelming threat. Unfortunately it seems to be low on the priority list for the author.
I really liked this book. A lot. Clearly as an unpublished book it has a lot of typos and some pacing issues and some things to be fixed, but it was seriously so good. I really hope Sanderson comes back to this and gets it published some day.
Great Book - Was obviously written before some of the cannon principles of the Cosmere were decided - It will be interesting to see if Brandon reworks this magic system into the cosmere under different shards or not.

It was interesting seeing this original point for the Cosmere, versus where the Cosmere has gone. There's definitely some core principles laying clear and naked in this book, and many character prototypes.

The newest Cosmere story, “Sixth of the Dusk,” is available now in Shadows Beneath: The Writing Excuses Anthology .

Brandon Sanderson was born in 1975 in Lincoln, Nebraska. As a child Brandon enjoyed reading, but he lost interest in the types of titles often suggested to him, and by junior high he never cracked a book if he could help it. This changed when an eighth grade teacher gave him Dragonsb...more
