Jenna, Scott and I will read this novel coming December. But everyone who wants to chat /discuss it is more than welcome to join.

Ilyas | 17 comments Thank God you decided on December - My August and September to-read list was getting pretty dire. I'm down for it at any rate.


Dani | 577 comments :-)


Emma | 12 comments I'm up for reading this too!


Solseit | 1460 comments Me too! I just need to buy it - and to have a reminder by December, considering how quickly I forget my to-do lists!

Dani's 60% done with this right now so I'm just checking who is still in for reading this in Dec. If we put it off until next year it I would be OK with that.


Dani | 577 comments I'm sorry.

No worries. As the expression goes, shit happens.


Emma | 12 comments I am still in for December but am happy to put it off too..


message 10: by Jenna, I'd be free if not for Temper & Edgewalker (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jenna Kathleen (jennakathleen) | 4615 comments Mod
I think I will put it off because I don't seem to have much time for reading these days and I need to lighten my schedule.

I think I'm going to put it off until next year.

Emma | 12 comments Ah shame! Ok. Guess I can wait. Not like I don't have an enormous pile of books lined up already!


message 13: by Dani (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dani | 577 comments Emma (and Aristea?) I'm happy to put reading the rest of the book off till December if you'd still like to read it then.


message 14: by Emma (new) - rated it 4 stars

Emma | 12 comments I could start it earlier maybe in a week or so... wouldn't want to leave you hanging for too long!


message 15: by Dani (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dani | 577 comments Emma don't worry about that. I have to put all my reads on hold for at least a week now anyway on account of doing a proofreading, so just tell me when you'd like to start and I will follow your lead :-)


message 16: by Emma (new) - rated it 4 stars

Emma | 12 comments Great! That works! See you later!


Solseit | 1460 comments I am totally hoping to read this book at some point! I am not sure I can start right away though - including the fact I do not own it yet, easy fix with ebooks though.
Do you want to start already in October then?


message 18: by Emma (new) - rated it 4 stars

Emma | 12 comments Was hoping to..Dani said she doesn't mind waiting a couple of weeks . Last week in October?


message 19: by Emma (new) - rated it 4 stars

Emma | 12 comments I'm going to go ahead and read this now. Please feel free to join me if you are so inclined :)


message 20: by Dani (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dani | 577 comments Yes, I am :-)

Emma | 12 comments Great! Well read slowly because I know you are already a way ahead! It's a quick read though by the look of it..

Emma | 12 comments Chapters 1 and 2

Dani | 577 comments I was gonna say I'll read slowly anyway because I have two other buddy reads going on right now but I can see you will be up to where I am in no time at all LOL.

(view spoiler)


Solseit | 1460 comments OMG, I open the book and the first page is just awesome.
(view spoiler)

I am hoping (probably even expecting) the great Sanderson ability to create a magic system and be able to fully explain it.


Solseit | 1460 comments Prologue

Enjoy.

message 37: by Dani (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dani | 577 comments Seems like I need to pick up the book back up again when you are both at Chapter 11 already. It's a fast read isn't it?!

I am so surprised about how fast it goes! Sure, I am having some spare time at work these days but it is soooo fast!


message 39: by Emma (new) - rated it 4 stars

Emma | 12 comments I'm up to chapter 16. Will probably read another couple of chapters then switch to something different for the evening


Solseit | 1460 comments This is super exciting. A mystery following the other! I am 70% in and I am truly enjoying the book!


message 41: by Dani (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dani | 577 comments I wasn't able to read much tonight but I agree with you Aristea. The mystery is building and making it more interesting.


Solseit | 1460 comments I love when I do not see things coming! (view spoiler)


Solseit | 1460 comments I have to thank Emma - I was in a reading slump, yet I devoured this book. I enjoyed it so much and I am hoping there will be a second book at some point!


message 44: by Dani (new) - rated it 4 stars

Dani | 577 comments Did you finish it then Aristea? I intend to finish it tonight - I'm at chapter 18 now.
I'm starting to like Joel & Melody much more now.

Yes I did, thanks to another slow day at the office!

Dani | 577 comments Can we switch jobs please? :-)


message 47: by Emma (new) - rated it 4 stars

Emma | 12 comments I will finish tonight too. I'm so sad we are going to have to wait some time for a sequel ! Will Joel get his ceremony of inception? Will he be a rithmatist? Who has been committing the murders/ abductions? All will hopefully be revealed this evening!

Yes, there is a second book :)
The Aztlanian
Not sure if 2017 is still correct though. We'll know by year end when he publishes his annual year-end update for State of Sanderson.

Dani | 577 comments LOL 'State of Sanderson' ? How cool is that!
