Read from November 12 to 14, 2010

Firstborn is a short story that feels like a longer book, in a good way. Sanderson didn't really delve into any of the characters in depth, but all the battles and skirmishes in the outer reaches made it feel like things have been going on for a really long time.

An unexpected twist, another minor twist, and then a kind of cop out, predictable ending. I would have given this 4 stars if the ending weren't so abrupt.
