    Robin Hobb or Braden Sanderson?

    Hello, I am looking for a fantasy to read, but I cannot choose between these two authors because I've never read anything from them and I don't know their styles at all. I am actually looking for a high fantasy, with magic, dragons, etc, with complex and interesting characters, without so...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Having just finished WoT, Towers of Midnight all I can say is wow. This guy has totally rejuvinated The Wheel of Time. Having spent the last 13 or so years reading WoT my feeling (like many others) was that I was now just reading the books to get to the end because I'd dedicated so long to...

    Hi All, I was looking for the Brandon Sanderson thread under "Authors" and realised he doesn't have his own thread. Does anyone else agree that he deserves his own now? I'd say so as I think he's proving to be a more than competent author and seems to be producing quality novels out on a...

    Brandon Sanderson - impressed!

    Hi all, Thought I'd just drop you all a note as I've just finished reading part 1 of Sanderson's Mistborn Trilogy: The Final Empire. Have to say it wasn't what I expected but it was absolutely amazing. I couldn't put it down last night and had to finish it - even though it meant I was still...

    Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson (Spoilers!)

    As per my usual bad habit of making threads about series I just finish, here I am. I don't know about anyone else, but when I finish a series half my mind is still usually on it for a little while making it hard to start the next book or series. The Mistborn trilogy was a great series. There's...

    Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

    With all the attention he is getting lately I thought I'd finally read one of his books. Though I had planned on doing this before the next Wheel of Time book came out. Since Warbreaker just came out and it sounded pretty interesting I decided I'd check that out. I very much enjoyed it. The...

Sanderson wrote the first novel some time ago and is moving back and forth between revising this and writing The Wheel...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Just thought I would recommend to everyone Brandon Sanderson. I have read Elantris, Mistborn and am currently reading the Well of Ascension. I am a huge fan of his style. The premise for Mistborn was great. Just the idea...what would happen if the hero destined in prophecy to save the world...
