it was amazing
Read in January, 2011

This was my second Sanderson novel, having read Elantris before. This book was very similar to Elantris in a lot of ways (two cities, some who may be gods, characters who are ignorant of the truth). Sanderson has quickly become my favorite new author. His writing is fluent, his ideas original, and he has a knack for creating memorable likable characters (even when your perceptions of them change mid-stream). It's a story of returned gods wo do not understand their positions, and civilizations who have different ways of dealing with them. The central theme of the novel seems to be one of misconception, no one knows who they are or what they are capable of, a mistruth has been propogated for so long that no one knows what to believe. I read the free ebook version offered on his website, and it was full of typos, mixed up character names, etc but it did not bother me one bit, the story was so engaging it almost told itself. He left a few questions unanswered at the end, presumably to set up a sequel. This was the only thing that bothered me at all. I am in shock now that it is finished, I don't know what to do with myself.

Brandi Chavez I just finished the Mistborn series and would HIGHLY recommend it. It was amazing, so add it to your list if you like Sanderson. :-)
