Book Review: Elantris by Sanderson (5 stars)

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

5 out of 5 stars

Read in June 2008

Very few authors can convince me to care about their characters. I started reading this book with a chip on my shoulder, having recently learned that Brandon Sanderson has been awarded the task of writing the Wheel of Time’s final book A Memory of Light. My goal while reading this novel was to compare Brandon’s talent and ascertain his ability to carry on the torch that is the Wheel of Time.

Brandon’s talent for characterization, especially the female lead, and plot twists and progressions eased my mind. Elantris stands alone as a well-written fantasy and worthy of your time spent in Arelon.
