's review
Feb 29, 2012

it was ok
bookshelves: science-fiction-and-fantasy
Read in February, 2012

Two possibilities: either Sanderson didn't spend enough time polishing the book or he meant it for the YA (Young Adult) market but somehow the classification got lost in the publishing process. The characters are superficial, the worldbuilding ditto, and the magic system may be innovative but isn't sufficiently elaborated to be particularly interesting. Compared with his excellent Mistborn series this is a step backwards in every way. I'll give him one more chance (The Way of Kings), but if he blows that I'm moving on.
