As a big fan of Sanderson, I found this story to be somewhat disappointing. The artwork, while impressive with scenery and creatures, was a bit messy and sloppy with characters. Perhaps I'm too used to the style of manga and manhwa; thus found this to be less refined. The story itself has some parts where if felt like it could get good, then sorta fell back into a slump. Felt disjointed with abrupt statements and transitions. The worst part was how the main character was laughing and smiling in scenes shortly after the mass deaths of people close to him. While I know this is a fantastical world, I still expect some human realism. All that said, I am curious to check out the next volume, so to me it's not a complete loss. There is a flavor of Sanderson's work in here somewhere; just gotta squint to see it.
