Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

April 2, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Firefight is a wonderful sequel to the heart-stopping Steelheart, delivering all the action, adventure, and fun that readers will expect. It's an explosive adventure that captured my imagination, and has left me sad that I have to wait so long for the next instalment, Calamity.

Killing the tyrannical Epic Steelheart has liberated the steel city of Newcago, but hasn't brought peace to David Charleston. Now hailed has 'Steelslayer', he's become somewhat of a celebrity in the city. Some want him to protect them, others want to use him as a political tool, but David wishes he could sink back into...

Words of Radiance is absolutely breathtaking, and fantasy fans are missing out if they’re not already reading The Stormlight Archive. I love this story-world and its characters, and am excited because there are eight more books to come! I can’t wait to see what Sanderson dishes up next!

This story expertly re-orients readers in the world Sanderson created in Steelheart, and gears us up for the followup which is coming out next year. If you like YA fantasy then I strongly encourage you to pick up Steelheart.

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

October 21, 2013 Reviews 1

The gods have smiled upon us and brought us some Sanderson goodness before the release of Words or Radiance next year! Steelheart is an exquisite accomplishment – all the best of Brandon’s writing, world building and characterisation in an action-packed, diabolically clever book. While happily marketed as YA, Steelheart will…

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

January 7, 2013 Reviews 1 ★★★★

Brandon Sanderson frequently comments that he intended Warbreaker and Elantris to dovetail: examining the same issues but dealing with them differently. I read Warbreaker with his intent in mind, and think it does indeed go well with the story-line of Elantris. It is an earlier work of Sanderson’s (pre Mistborn), so…

The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson

January 24, 2012 Reviews 0 ★★★★

It was great to return to Scandrial and the Mistborn universe in this novel, which shows how the planet has changed over three hundred years. Religions and cults have formed around the lenegendary figures of the original trilogy, and technology has progressed greatly over the years. The development of the…

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

January 4, 2012 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Brandon Sanderson never fails to deliver on amazing world building and I was, as usual, astounded by the level of detail he puts into his writing. Everything, including the speech, mannerisms and military styles of the kingdoms is meticulously described and self consistent. The world is rich in detail –…

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

September 12, 2011 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Reading Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy spurred me to read his earlier works. Elantris is his debut novel (released in 2005), and I found it to be every bit as engaging and wonderful as I expected. High Priest Hrathen of Shu Derethi, the militaristic religion underlying the power of Fjorden, is…
