My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

My Review:

This was the first Brandon Sanderson book I read and all I can say is what a wonderful book it was. I was mesmerised from the word go. Taken on a journey through the world of Elantris via the colourful,strong, and faithful characters he portrayed. Where my loyalties lay with one during one chapter they would quickly switch to another in the next. He wove a deep web of love, hardship, politics, deceit, war, greed, religion, and of course good vs evil.

I read this book in a few days, unable to tear myself from the world of Elantris.
