Fantasy novels are one of my top three favorite genres. I love getting lost in a completely different world. Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris is one of the best I’ve ever read. The fact that this was a debut novel blows my mind. The story, the characters, every little detail seems to be woven in with a purpose.
Everything had balance. Characters had flaws. They had incomplete knowledge. The reader also has an incomplete knowledge, but Sanderson peppers just enough hints to keep us aware and on our toes.
I loved every bit of this novel. It captured me from the beginning, and kept me involved to the very last page.
Elantris was my first Sanderson novel, but I will definitely read more of his work.
