I just really enjoyed this. The magic is super well defined--I wish there had been more playing with it, but what was there was beautiful. The political element is interesting, dragging in ideas that I haven't necessarily seen explored in fantasy before. It's a shame that our swordfighting female protagonist is relegated to damsel at the end, but otherwise it's a delightful romp in a well established universe.

I really liked this. It is very different from any books I have ever read. I'm looking forward to reading more of his stories.

Sanderson creates an amazing fantasy world with believable, complex and likeable (or hateable) characters. Character development was very well done in this book and I could feel the goals and motivations of Raoden, Sarene, Dilaf, Hrathen and the rest as the pursued their goals and schemes.
