really liked it
Read from September 15 to October 03, 2011

Fantastic opening to a unique series. Great characterization, pacing, plot, and action. Strangely, I thought the writing was less polished than in Elantris, the author's first novel. I was bothered by the high amount of repetition and the annoying chapter intros that tease the reader. Definitely sticking with this series, though.

Paul Now we're talkin!

Jerry Woo hoo! +1 to respect!

Matt I loved the plot, the characters, and the unique power system. I thought the writing was often repetitive, but it didn't take away from the drive of the story. I simply did not like the short excerpts at the beginning of each chapter. The second book has them too. :-( Thanks for the recommendation because I've been re-imagining those fight scenes over and over!
