Oh wow. Just wow.

Sanderson did an amazing job of tying in the hints and questions from the first two books and fixing all the problems. But it was definitely an emotional trip. Sanderson has always pulled on my emotions throughout all of his books, but this one...well, let's just say I gasped, cried out "No!" and several other such reactions came out of my lips. The last...oh, hundred pages or so were impossible for me to stop until it was all over and fixed.

I had thought that Robin Hobb was the only one who used the tactic of "well, there's a conflict. Let's have it go the path that doesn't work for the protagonists!" He doesn't do it with every step like she seems to, but....things still managed to go downhill in such an already awful situation.

I am glad he's not Joss Whedon. Otherwise half the cast would've died.
