reviews

I began my Brandon Sanderson journey with the Way of Kings, and I haven’t had any regrets so far. Still it was a little strange moving backwards in time to the final three Wheel of Time books and now onto The Final Empire. Much like the Realm of the Elderlings books, I am playing catch up with my wife who finished the first Mistborn trilogy earlier this year. I put off reading this book for years despite having heard so many people sing it’s praises (I mean, it has 4.5 stars out of nearly 320,000 ratings on Goodreads). It’s fair to say there was a considerable amount of hype leading up to it.

It lived up to it.

“Plots beyond plots, plans beyond plans. There was always another secret”

An epic read, Brandon Sanderson gives you an exhilarating piece of fantasy. It’s a high that you might not ever get over. I don’t think I will.
