Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

It definitely feels a bit less polished than his later novels but it’s still a great read. Set around a city in which random people undergo a transformation and become essentially zombies, this story follows three different people: Raoden, the heir to the throne who wakes up to find out the transformation has happened to …

Mistborn: Secret History by Brandon Sanderson

So this is a very interesting, cosmere heavy little novella. I won’t go into any details as it would be very spoilery but I really recommend reading this after the original Mistborn trilogy. It will ruin a little surprise at the end of book 6 I think, but I read it then and I’ll be …

The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

What an end, even on a reread. Set around a year after the events of the previous book, things are looking even worse now than they had been. The mists are staying later every day and ash fall is increasing, so this means that food is getting almost impossible to grow and supplies are going …

Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson

So the next instalment of the Stormlight Archives is done, it was a beast of a book as expected but overall I enjoyed it. I won’t say much about the plot except that it’s set around a year after book three and mainly follows Kaladin, Navani and Venli. Shallan has a fair few POV’s as …

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

There is a great book here but pretty much the whole middle of the book dragged. Set a year after Mistborn, Elend is now ruling Luthadel with a council of representatives made up of the nobility, merchants and the Skaa. Vin is his only Mistborn and his personal bodyguard. Society has pretty much broken down …

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson

It’s been a while since I read this book but it still holds up very well. Mistborn is basically a heist book set on a world where the ‘Dark One’ has won and has been ruling for a thousand years. Certain people can burn metals which allows them to do certain things like become stronger, …

Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson

So we start off pretty much exactly where we left off after Words of Radiance. Urithiru has been found, Radiants have been revealed and the end is nigh. I won’t go into too much detail here about the plot because most of the Fantasy community is aware of Stormlight and also for fear of spoilers. …

Edgedancer by Brandon Sanderson

A nice little novella which is set in between Stormlight 2 and 3. It follows Lift who has a minor role in the interludes in the main Stormlight books. I like the character but I am still not fond of her constant use of ‘awesome’. It is too American in the context and always takes …
