A solid first novel, but nowhere near as good as Sanderson's later stuff. Shows the potential of everything to come, and hints at his broader universe in some neat ways.

This might just be my favorite of Sanderson's Mistborn novels to date. Shorter and punchier than those of the original trilogy, this book takes on a much smaller story, and gives Sanderson a chance to show the ways he's grown since taking on The Whee ...more

G.K. Chesterton
“But when first the two black dragons sprang out of the fog upon the small clerk, they had merely the effect of all miracles – they changed the universe. He discovered the fact that all romantics know – that adventures happen on dull days, and not on sunny ones. When the cord of monotony is stretched most tight, it it breaks with a sound like song.”
G.K. Chesterton

J.R.R. Tolkien
“And the ship went out into the High Sea and passed into the West, until at last on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country under a swift sunrise.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

G.K. Chesterton
“What was wonderful about childhood is that anything in it was a wonder. It was not merely a world full of miracles; it was a miraculous world.”
G.K. Chesterton
