5.0 out of 5 stars
Finally, a one volume fantasy, 1 July 2009
This book has enough complexity to keep it interesting, but not so much that it bogs down the pace of the story. The action keeps moving from scene to scene, move to counter move, and, a rarity in the genre, it wraps up satisfyingly in a single volume.
I was tipped off to Brandon Sanderson when Tor sent out Mistborn, which I also enjoyed. I'm pleased that this author recognizes his readers' desire to have the story completed in a timely manner (Mistborn Trilogy is all already published). Later I learned he was going to finish Robert Jordan's too-long series, and I can't wait to read those as well.
