  • An incredibly crafted story.

    This is my second foray into the waters of Brandon Sanderson's genius. And it can only be called that. Genius. His stories are so incredibly crafted. This book is a young adult book, but it felt more like a mature middle-grade book. Not quite young adult, but not completely juvenile either. There are definitely mature themes in the book, but the storytelling feels more middle grade. The best things about this book are the premise and the plot. The idea behind the series is exciting. I loved Sanderson's take on superpowers. The plot is very absorbing. I mercilessly wanted to know what would happen next throughout the story. I was glued to the book. I enjoyed the foreshadowing. I literally could not stop contemplating facets of the plot trying to figure out what the endgame would be. The characters are enjoyable. I wouldn't say that they are developed extremely well. I felt that they could have been more personal, though I did become fond of them while reading. The world building was sufficient. It wasn't bad. There was enough information for the reader to understand the scope of things and to set the pace for the story. But it definitely felt nearly bare bones. A story can survive on bread, but a sandwich is definitely better. I would have loved more world-building details sandwiched into this. The romance in the book was actually kind of cute. One scene, in particular, was quite touching. But the romance was only as good as you would expect from a middle-grade book. Nothing extreme or too terribly deep. Overall, I loved this story. I wish that the storytelling had felt more mature, but I did not dislike the book as a whole because of it. I am anxious to read the next book and find out what happens. The premise and the plot really drive this story and make me want to continue the series. If you like books that contain superpowers then I'd give this one a try.

  • Excellent read

    The characters and story really drew me in. Action packed and exciting from the start with interesting twists throughout. Would have been 5 stars but it was such a quick read it felt like I was just watching a movie. I'm excited for more books in this world.

  • Loved the mystery

    I quite enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed. The suspense was tight and kept me guessing. The magic and the society were well developed. An excellent start to a new series.

  • Great book with a lot of charm

    I love Brandon's work, and that might just colour my review a bit. In particular i Llike reading his YA novels in between other more advanced reads. This book, or rather the whole trilogy is perfect just for that. It's a very well written book that's quite an easy read. It has really colourful characters and an interesting plot with just enough plot twists to keep you rooted. It's simply got a lot of charm.

    Thanks for your feedback!
