    Best Brandon Sanderson fantasy?

    I haven't tried any of Sanderon's fantasy as yet - any suggestions as to which one would give a best sample of his best writing? :) Ideally, the first book in one of his series. :)

    The Rithmatist Kindle sale

    I just saw a post from Brandon saying The Rithmatist was 1.39 on the Kindle in the UK today. I have read this book and it was one of the most original magic systems I've read. It's a YA and the plot was strong and it's a really cool story. Check it out!

    Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson

    Books that are written for all ages, is how Sanderson has described his Alcatraz novels, and you can see that as you read. The language is straight forward, not to taxing and easy to read, with various parts of the story toned down to make them suitable for the younger readers, while at the same...

    Brandon Sanderson YA novels

    I've been reading some of Sanderson's books for younger audiences; Alcatraz, which is middle grade, and Steelheart and The Rhythmatist which are YA, and was wondering if anyone else has read these. Alcatraz was fun, but I thought the other two were fantastic. For those who haven't read them...

    Brandon Sanderson "The Way of Kings"

    I have heard mixed reviews of this massive tome. Some think it's the best new thing yet while others think it's so so or even a waste of trees. Any comments from those who have read it? I notice Sanderson does not have his own forum yet as well. He has quite a bit of material now. Time for...

    Mistborn Brandon Sanderson - does it cheer up?

    Seen good things said about Mistborn, so got the first book out of the library. So far, and not very far in, there have been repressed serfs, ash falling from the sky, inquisition types and there is about to be rape and murder. Not exactly cheery. Does it cheer up, is there a cheerier second...

    Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn

    I've recently started the Mistborn series About three thirds of the way through the third book. Very enjoyable, Vin has to be one of the best female characters I've come across. Is it just me or does Ruin bring Donaldson's Lord Foul Bane to mind?
